I started off high school with a crash. I was a freshman and I had barely gotten used to James Clemens High School. I originally was supposed to go to Bob Jones but due to my family moving to County Line I had to switch over to JC. The switch had a very hard and brutal effect on me, I was never able to properly say goodbye to my long time friends and my miraculous reputation I built as a Class Clown. I was a very socially awkward type of guy so friends didn’t come to me just like that.
It was the first week of school, I felt so lonesome and confused with both high school life and the school. I often stumbled upon the wrong classes and still had that middle school playful attitude. My jokes that used to get a lot of people to laugh, just made me awkward. I’ve never felt this lonely in my life. During the weekend, I would try to get my parents to transfer me to BJ, but it never happened. I was bonded with JC for all the years I have in high school.
The following Monday was amazing. I was sitting in my first block class, and over the intercom it was announced we would have a club expo. I desperately wanted to spend my refuel a more efficient way so I decided to sign up for some. I had a deep interest in today’s politics so I joined a few political clubs, the election season was around the corner so I wanted to see what opportunities would occur in these clubs to help the candidate I support.
I would come to every meeting for the clubs I signed up on. My classes weren’t very difficult so my refuel time was free. These meetings helped me better socialize with fellow club members. From club members to friends, it was amazing how I gained friends who had the same interest as me.
Why am I telling you all this?
I have seen several people sitting down and plain out doing nothing often. So if you’re one of those people, join some clubs with interests you have. Try it.
