First Day Of High SchoolPaper Rating: Word Count: 1217 Approx Pages: 5
It was the first day of the rest of my life ¦ my grown up life. My stomach was in groaning for food, and I couldn't seem to do anything with my hair. I had all my pens, papers, notebooks and other miscellaneous items stuffed into my spanking new blue book bag. My mother was down stairs on the patio drinking her morning mug of coffee, yelling at me to hurry up. I gave my brand new Nike's a quick whitening, checked to make sure I had everything; money for lunch, all my books, paper, pens, and a calculator. My mother continued to yell at me from downstairs throughout the morning.
" You're going to miss the bus!
The bus! I couldn't believe my ears. I couldn't show up to high school on my first day by riding the bus. I was nervous, so I asked my mother to drive me to school. Somehow knowing my mother was going to be there part of the way made it a little bit easier for me to go. It was nice to have a close relative there to set me off on the grown-up part of my life. My childhood was over, and I was almost an adult. Not to mention the fact that I hated the bus and used any excuse to get out of riding it.
