Cannelton High School Narrative

Good Essays
As I mentioned in previous chapters, I had at one point in my school career gone to Cannelton schools. However, it was at this time that I had exchanged schools. Back in Cannelton, we went to the high school building after 5th grade. This caused me to technically be a middle schooler a year earlier than most others.
My 6th-grade year was what I had thought, what I had hoped, high school would be like. We had more freedom than most and were able to get soda for lunch. My school also had a game room that we were allowed to go into after lunch, if out our grades were good, that is.
But, when I came here, it was nothing like Cannelton. We didn’t get the chance to go out at all. Going outside was my favorite thing to do. Unfortunately, here at Tell City Jr/Sr High School, by school rules, you are not permitted to go outside until 3:05.
Back at Cannelton high school, I had always been allowed to go to the

My first day on the bus, I met a very important person to me. She would soon become the closest friend I would ever have. We shared a name, the interest in video games, and the hobby of drawing. But, other than that, we were very different. She liked white milk and hated chocolate (a.k.a “tainted milk”). I was the opposite. I enjoyed the company of dogs, she was obsessed with cats. But, differences aside, we enjoyed sitting together during lunch and just doodling all over each other's agendas and notebooks. We never really had any classes together, aside from homeroom together. After our 7th grade year, we had more classes together. We didn’t have homeroom together, but we had history and Reading Renaissance together. We would hang out after school and spend hours upon hours watching Youtube videos and doodling random adventures for characters we liked. We actually rewatched an older movie, and somehow made a horror movie into some comedic

    I honestly wish I could go back to fourth or fifth grade… I would change so much… everything was so easier! Making friends were so easy! Math was so much easier. Hell.. life was even easier. My teacher was ms.bufferhoff in 4th grade and ms. Dill-white in fifth grade. My fifth grade teacher as the best. For black history month, we researched all kinds of stuff and end up decorating the room. We pushed the desk together and made the room into a cat walk run way. We all dressed up and modeled all day while people came it. Everyone had so much fun. I had my first crush...D'amonte Burrel. He turned into my boy friend very soon. I remember when everyone found out. It was so easy back then though.I shared my snacks. We sat together in lunch. I remembered…

    I remember on the bus home from camp. I was thirteen and so was she. When summer started I envisioned it would be me and maybe a group of boys I had yet to meet causing a ruckus every day. Instead it was just me and this one girl. In my mind, we’re still at camp as long as we’re on the bus and not at the recreation center where our parents will be patiently waiting to welcome us back to the real world. We’re still wearing our light blue camp shirts. I liked her, and she liked me. Honestly, the feeling was well beyond like for me. I’m not sure if that same adoration was mutual. She hasn’t shown a single sign suggesting it so neither have I. Satisfied with the phenomenon of this girl choosing to talk to me and do so again continually all summer. A girl who’s smarter than the average bear. One who’s hilarious in that if I say something outrageous for a laugh is willing to say something to level with me just make me laugh. Someone who also finds some way to get extremely cryptic and wise sometimes in a way I try to be. A girl, whose wild curly hair always finds its way to the front of her face. It all seemed perfect for this moment. Of course, outside of this prison we brought ourselves to we don’t live in the same neighborhood. Nor do we go to same school. In a few years unless something extraordinary happens and one of us moves, we won’t end up at the same school years down the line. So, this is pretty much the finish line; unless I man up, and it might especially be it for us if I actually do open my mouth.…

    During my sixth grade year, my best friend Jesus and I met two people who would later become two of our closest friend. Their names are Cesar and David. Two years after we met Cesar moved away and would visit whenever he could. Every time Cesar would visit Jesus, David and I would go to the movies to hang out. Jesus and David were always the more active and spontaneous ones in the group while I was more calm and thought out than them. Cesar was somewhere in the middle, being calm yet very active when he wanted to be. The movie we watched was never really important or memorable, the theatre was a location where we could go for a few hours and hang out without parents over our shoulders. I don’t really remember most of the movies we went to watch,…

    From that moment, we talked more and more, and I was not shy with her. She was a good student, but I was not. Afterward, she always asked me to go to library with her, and we enjoyed many stories of literature such as The Finkler Question, Lolita. Moreover, she helped me to deal with math assignments. When I understood, we solved together a problem in order to find who had the shortest and fastest way. Also, she helped we to improve my English from speaking to writing. We would speak English if whenever we could. Then, I got an A in math class, and I knew I was going to have a good friend. After we spent a lot of time to study and relax.

    Before we start our story, I will give you some background information about myself. Don't get me wrong, I used to have friends. I still remember middle school like it was yesterday. My best friend Mikey and I used to spend every day after school together. We would pig out on licorice and play video games all night. We used to tell each other everything. On the last day of grade eight, we planned a huge sleepover. We went to the grocery store down the street from where I live and bought lots of chocolate, chips, soda, skittles and licorice. We walked quickly past freaky Bob's house and had our daily greetings with my old neighbour Helen. She had a huge, welcoming house and I had been visiting her ever since I could remember. Her snowflake white hair, beautiful smile and friendly voice made me always look forward to visiting her after school. When Mikey and I arrived back home, we instantly started playing video games. I beat my high score in a new game I had just purchased and I was overjoyed. I had been saving up my money for five months to buy it and I absolutely loved it. Mikey and I laughed and played and had the time of our lives.…

    Lisa initially was my sisters’ friend although we shared small talk when she came over to our house. Over time, we realized that we shared many similarities which drew our acquaintance toward friendship. Lisa and I both enjoyed eating pizza with orange soda; we shared many of the same opinions about teachers and students at our school which always seemed to lead us toward a moment of laughter. My sister, Lisa and I hung out as a trio quite often. We did homework together, had sleep overs and did girl stuff. When Lisa and I were not together, I would find myself bored not knowing what to do. We would call each other to talk about simple things like what we were going to wear to school the following day, or what our plans were for the upcoming weekend. Once the weekend rolled around, we were watching movies together or walking around our neighborhood chatting about our lives. At one point I remember our parents telling us we spent too much time…

    I was looking for my classroom and I remember the school hallways were so narrow that it was very difficult for me to pass between people, the floor was so slippery that it seemed like I was trying to walk on a skating rink. That’s when I met her, she was like me, hopelessly misplaced and desperately reading the long lists were they had the names of the students, which were almost falling off the wall where they were stuck because of the moisture that it felt that day. That was when we first spoke and discovered we were in the same classroom. I felt better because I had someone to be with as I came to know the other girls and make friends. I never thought that she would be the one to become my best friend.…

    My best high school experience would be graduating. Me graduation was the highlight of my teenage life. I was happy to be leaving high school and beginning a new chapter in my life. I was excited to step into adulthood and be independent. Of course I mentally prepared myself for what was to come and I was more than prepared for all the challenges I would face with being on my own and starting college. This would be my first year in college and I can say that everything has been going pretty good. There has been some up and downs along this new journey of mine, but I really can’t complain. I am on the road to success and I know my parents couldn’t be any happier. I hope to someday accomplish my dream of becoming a pediatrician and working with children. I feel proud of myself for coming this for and I’m glad to say that this is just the beginning. All of this wouldn’t have been possible if I wouldn’t have graduated high school so…

    I have this friend from elementary who is exactly the opposite of me. I also don’t know how on earth we became friends but probably because she was friends with everyone from our class. She was outgoing, adventurous, super confident, and fun. On this particular day that still lingers in my memories, we were together first thing in the morning as we, with the whole class, were waiting for our teacher to arrive to class. As usual kids, we played games with the others on the school grounds: patintero, agawan base, marco polo, jackstone, 21.…

    I knew of another girl at school that I hadn’t talked to in a few years. She was in Honors classes and theater, so we rarely crossed paths. Our parents, however, were best friends and always encouraged her and I to hang out but we never found much in common. After separating myself from my former group, she and I became friends. I quickly found myself realizing what true friendship really was and was surprised to have found it with someone I had once thought to be so…
