Chatterbox: Down to Earth

I'm in this

I'm in this alternative program at my school for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders that teaches Language Arts and Social Studies and I'm super sad that this school year is ending (I know, I'm insane. But I have a reason.) because the program is being discontinued next year and I really enjoyed the one year I was in it and really don't want it to end... I've made so many friends that I won't really get to see next year because they are in different grades as me and the grades are really separate at my school normally. This past weekend we had a two-night field trip to a camp a bit away and there were just so many things that make me feel to melancholy. It was just really sad and sentimental because I feel like this year is just a little blip in the universe and nobody else really cares, but it matters to me and I want it to just stay like this forever. This one year, like a bubble, of fun and laughter, going on and on forever. I feel like even the people I don't really like I will miss, even that one guy I sat next to who was aways stealing my books and the super annoying people who distract everyone. Over the course of this year we have become a community and everyone has been an important part of it and I will just miss it so much. I feel like this is a really inadequate way of saying what I mean but there is just so many mixed emotions inside of me that I can't put them into words. I don't really expect you to be able to help, but just even talk to me about it and I'll probably feel happier. I love all you guys, and I will miss you when I leave (which won't be soon, don't worry).

Aw, I'm sorry to hear that, Epic Fangirl. It is really sad when things end, isn't it? Maybe you all can exchange emails and try to get together every so often? That's what my eighth grade class did when we graduated. There were only seven people in our class, but we've tried hard to stick together, even though we all went to different schools. You could try doing something like that with your group.

Just remember: There's a new adventure coming your way with new faces and new places as well as the old familliar ones. Keep an open mind and have fun with it!
