Narrative Essay: Moment I knew I was happy Being happy is one of the greatest emotions to express. It is sad how some people in this world do not experience happy moments in their life. Like someone who has depression, someone who is homeless with no money, and all the starving children around the world. Greed is a black hole for happiness. You can never fill, that’s why you should be happy with what you have. My happiest moment was when I met my girlfriend Marcelina this year. I’m sure it was the happiest moment for her too. I never knew she was in the same grade as me but I did not know here because she was so smart she took classes at the IRC center and not at my school. One day at my school we had an assembly for all juniors that went to Stevenson. The other seniors in different programs at different schools had to attend the assembly too. She was my friends, friends, friend, so it was a pretty distant connection. But we all sat together at the assembly and became friends with each other. We exchange phone numbers and added each other on Facebook but never really talked to each other much. We would have little conversations here and there every few weeks or so but that was it. I didn’t have strong feelings for her at the time so there was no need to have major conversations. If there was a girl I seriously liked I was always too scared to have major conversations with her or even tell her I liked her. But when I started to like Marcelina, I wasn’t afraid to talk her. I didn’t tell her I liked her incase she didn’t like me back because that would be a very awkward situation for most people to be in. Over time I became closer with my friend because at our school half way through the semester we switch classes and possibly lunches. So my friend Dennis and I ended up with the same lunch. We got closer so we stated to hang out more. One day his friend was having a pool party. He called me and asked “My friend is

    My teacher ran after me and asked me if I was okay and if I wanted her to talk to someone for me. I looked at her and replied assertively that I didn’t need help, but I wanted to move seats since I sat right next to her. She moved me next to someone who I never really talked to, she was a new girl in 8th grade and I was only in 7th. She was smiling and asked me how my day was and if I was alright and needed anything. She was very kind and cared a lot about how I was. The entire time we were not singing we were talking about our lives. We became good friends. Sadly, she did not have my lunch. I ended up searching for someone I knew at lunch instead of sitting at my old table. I saw an old friend from elementary school and asked her if I could sit with her, she said yes and we began to catch up on old times. We rekindled our friendship and I grew happy…

    The person sitting next to me was around my age. We said hi to each other and actually became pretty close acquaintances. He told me his name was Jaden and that he was going to Florida, too. We didn’t talk the whole way to Florida but we talked for a good amount of time. Other than talking to Jaden, I listened to music and watched movies that I had downloaded the previous night on my phone. Jaden and I exchanged numbers so we could keep in touch. To this day we still talk from time to time.…

    In middle school the only grades I had from 6-8th grade were “A’s” & “B’s” I only got a “C” once. I thought that was going to happen in high school, but no. I made new friends and got very comfortable around them. I remember walking into my biology class, and I was the last one to go in. I’m really shy so I was scared to sit next to total strangers, there was one seat left. There were three girls and I knew one of them from middle school. It was really awkward for about a week, then we all started talking to much. We all became amazing friends. There names are Jessica, Brooke, and Claire then another girl started talking to us, Nadia. We had so much fun at school, so we decided to hang out somewhere out of school. We were gonna go to a place called “Get Air” it’s a trampoline park. Claire and I were gonna take the bus , we were going to meet Jessica and Nadia there. Sadly Brooke wasn’t able to go . We still had so much fun there, even though we got in trouble a lot for doing flips and running in areas where there were little kids. We all had a feeling of a great time making eachother laugh with dumb jokes, laughing at each other for getting injured, and we were happy seeing each other happy. It’s like the song from Black Eyed Peas said “ I Gotta…

    What is happiness? That is not a question that may be easily answered. Due to the fact that every human-being possesses their own views on life, it is possible that there are innumerable interpretations of what is ultimately this idea seen as happiness. For the purpose of interpreting the idea of happiness as opposed to “being happy” I believe that it is necessary that there be a more continual and perpetual meaning is attached to happiness. I do not believe that actual happiness is a fleeting experience, but instead, a lasting state in which someone finds themselves. When looking to a dictionary or other source of reference to determine an official and concrete meaning behind happiness, the Miriam-Webster…

    Happiness. What is ‘Happiness’? Everyone has a different perception towards happiness. Throughout our life, each of us as human being had been struggling to find the key to happiness without realizing that the key to happiness is actually within us. Some might say that the rich are often the happiest because they have the most luxury. Others might say that the poor are often the happiest because they are poured with love and gratitude.

It is a fuzzy concept that can mean different things to each one of us. Everyone deserves happiness in their life. Open the door to your heart and let…

    Growing up I did not have that many friends. There were a few that I talked to, but only a handful that I truly felt close to. I did, however, meet who was and still is one of my closest friends. We knew each other through first grade, and we remained close until third grade; that was the year he had to move away. I remember him leaving hitting me hard, even though I was young I was still crushed at the harsh disappearance of my friend. It wasn't until seventh grade that we reconnected. He had moved back to the Southeast Polk school district, and we happened to have the same science class. After that, we started hanging out again, and he had told me about his time away. We lived very different lives, and when he told me about…
