Life Lately...

Life has been a lot different from how it used to be.  I have been at secondary school for nearly two months now.  Some days are better than others, but looking's all so strange.

I went to school throughout the whole of preschool, foundation stage, up to the beginning of year 4, and that's all in one preschool and two schools.  Then I was home educated.  I loved being home educated, helping out with my little siblings was my life.  But then I became so bored all of a sudden, searching for something new to do, something different.  Mum said about secondary school, I don't think she expected me to think about and say yes.  Mum probably thought I would quickly react and shout "NO WAY!", I don't blame her.

When Mum sent the letter to school all signed off and saying I was going, I regretted my choice so badly that I started to feel like it was going to be the end of the world.  Mum sent the letter quite late so I wasn't completely sure they would have a space for me, but when they replied and said I had a space...I was gutted.  I was pretty sure something good would happen when I was there, that was partly the reason why I wanted to go in the first place, along with wanting to do something new.

For the first week I HATED school as much as you could, but now I am really enjoying it, there are some lessons that I wish didn't exist, but other than that I am alright with school.  I have made two BFFs that are just amazing and incredible and altogether lovely people.  I have also met a few people I wish I hadn't, but that's just life, isn't it?

So, to all people that are thinking about trying something new, that you wouldn't usually, I would say GO FOR IT!  You probably will regret it for a while but after that I'm pretty sure you will be glad you made the decision.  It might feel like forever, but eventually you'll get there.
