The Best Moment of My Life

The Moment of my Life

There is always that one moment that everyone had in their lifetime. Whether it would be a life changing moment emotionally, physically, or just the peaceful moments you have to yourself to think, and wonder about your life in a whole. It is important to capture and keep those moments safe with you throughout your life so you can think back to them, and know that is what got you where you are right now. For me, my biggest moment was the time I was offered to go into the Gifted and Talented program. It was a life changing moment for me and I will never forget it. It all started in the fourth grade when my teacher noticed that I was excelling at a fast pace and I seemed to understand concept more quickly than others. So at the end of the year, she was offering to sign me into the gifted and talented program. Of course I would have said yes but there were some cons. I would have to move to another school because the school I was currently at didn’t offer any gifted and talented programs. Also, I would have to make new friends, which was a big deal. After thinking about it, I finally decided to go through with it. I was excited to see what I was getting myself into. At the start of the 5th grade at my new school, I already knew that this was for me. The pace was a lot faster, and the work was more challenging. It was going great, but I still did not have any friends. I was quiet for the first semester, I isolated myself from the others when I finally decided that I was going to have to make new friends. We were assigned new seats and I started to talk to the kid who was sitting right in front of me. We started to talk over lunch as well and we soon realized that we thought alike. It was like we were the same person. He liked the same stuff I did, we both were into sports, and we loved to have fun. The class was really cool too. For field trips, we did not go to the Museum of Art and Science like any old boring class does, we went to New Mexico and West Virginia. We got to travel! How cool is that? Soon, middle school came around the corner, and because I was in the gifted and talented program, I had to take a test over the summer to see if I would qualify to be in the gifted and talented team at the school. And sure enough, I made the cut. I’d have to say though, it was difficult. Middle school was a tough time for me. It seemed like I did not understand a thing and everything sped by. I tried to catch up but I barely made it out. But high school came along, and although I wasn’t able to make it into the IB program, I still made it into honor classes and that is good enough for me. I am a lot happier now than I was before and then I realized, if I wouldn’t have token that offer into the gifted and talented program, I would not be where I am today nor will I have the friends that I currently have now. The gifted and talented program has put me on a journey that I will never regret taking. That, was the moment of my life.
