{July 10, 2011}   Chapter 3: Back to School

It was fall. After vacation, there is always something very common at schools. Students laughing, telling about amazing trips and some very excited to be back to School. Betty took kids to go to school while Richard went to the new job. First, she had to leave Anelle before taking Kathy to her elementary school. Anelle left the car and stands in front of school. She was observing the details. That school was really enormous comparing to her the school in her old town. Obviously, she was nervous for being a shy person and for a huge change in her life. In her mind, she was wondering if she could make new friends, if she would fit in groups or feel accepted.. Anelle never wears brand new clothing. She enjoys a cool jeans and a cute shirt. She views herself as an Artist and not a popular girl. She never felt rejected by anyone because she never asked to be accepted. Anelle found her locker and left some of her stuffs inside. Her room was in third floor, so she walked, and she finally felt there was no reason to be scared because she is just being herself. She comes in, and only found a chair in the corner behind all classmates. Perhaps, it will make her to look like an outsider. However, she feels comfortable since nobody is going to notice her. Anelle was ready to watch the class, but she did not expect to be introduced to class. She has never had to introduce in public, since she always studied at the same school, same town and same classmates. Moreover, she had no choice. So, decided to encourage herself and stands up to talk a little about her “Hi everyone, my name is Anelle. I am from Athen, Texas. I just arrived Ohio 2 days ago”.
After this deeply breath introductory discussion, she looked at each ones faces’ expressions. Some did not react, some smiled, some just say “Hi there” and some were ironical “Huh, which city is that?” During the lunch break, the first thing that Anelle was worried is who would sit with her, and have lunch with her. She would attempt to come first to any group. But, her shyness always interrupted her. She was almost arriving to the cafeteria when a voice shows up “Hey Anelle, my name is Colleen, I heard you are from Texas. But, I just moved 2 years ago from South Carolina. How are you?” Anelle looks and she recognized her classmate. She remembers she smiled to her during her speech. She quickly hold her hand and replies “Nice to meet you Colleen, yeah it is my first day here. This moving is really a big change for me”.
“Yes, you said that. I know how it feels. This school is an elite school. I was not very fond to study here. But, I have to go to College” responds Diane. Diane was a cute girl wearing glasses. She wears a knitted blouse and a plaid skirt. She reminds some of those smart girls who enjoys Literature and Math.
“What are your plans for the College?” Anelle asked curiously.
“I love History and Poems. I am just not sure if I want to pursue a career in Sociology or Education. I also play piano since I was a little girl. My family encourages me to attend a Music school. It would be great to play in a Classic Concert. But, I know how competitive it is. My dream is working with kids. I only child, but I always wished to have little brothers and sisters. How about you? Have you thought in any major yet?” – Colleen replied.
“ Yes, I want to attend Graphic Design School. I love to draw. New York City is my first plan. I dream to have my illustrations published in Magazines or Children’s Books. I have some works and scratches at home. You should come sometimes. So, you can tell if they are good or not. Since you love kids, and my illustration could be or not be educative. Oh yes, I have a little sister named Kathy”
“Wow, what such interesting plan. I would like to see your works and you have a sister? Lucky you! I would love to meet her for sure”
“ Frankly, she is only my half sister. My mother remarried after my dad passed away. But, we both get along well. We are a closed family”
“Interesting, we should schedule anytime. Here, get a tray” Colleen delivered a tray to Anelle. “The food sounds nice. They got a section of Pizza, mashed potatoes, corn dogs and burgers. I know they are not healthy at all. But, I am a passionate person. I eat what I can.”.
The two new friends sound very closed since the first day at school. Anelle was more confident that some changes might be good. Perhaps, the changes can improve her to become more outgoing and sociable.
