Am I really in America now, can't believe it.Is this a dream?
OMG, I'm lost, where should I go , why there are so many people and I really need help....
I was shocked when I got the news that I would move to America for a better life from Beijing that I lived for 7 years. I was 13 years old, all familiar places, streets, my best friends, saying goodbye was really hard for me. But when I was at the airport I didn't cry, I felt there's more were waiting for me in my new life.
Everything looks so new to me, the view on my way back the new home was so good, but I didn't have hany mood to enjoy it, I was so tired and I couldn't remember what I did that week brfore going to school. It seems like a dream.About the new school, all I thought was I just need to study hard and catch up,but I was wrong.
Oh! we have a same period!
No one told me the direction at the school so that I was late on my first day of school. I don't understand what the teacher was talking they spoke too fast and I was lost at lunch, so many students like a flood rushed towards me, that I almost drowned. In the end, I didn't get anything even a friend .The first day of school was a mess.I hated it so much that I don't want to go to school anymore,I missed my old school my best friends.I want to go back. You would see my sad face every day after school, before school.
I'm actually really happy now, after one year, I mad really good friends in High school, I love it.
After a few weeks, someone came into my life, it was like she’s meant to be, to save me from depression, be friends with me, and make me happy again. Her name was Erica, a beautiful Mongolian girl who had the sunniest smile. Our story started at her “Can I sit here?” on the bus.
Can I sit here?
I talked with her first and I found out that we lived in the same apartment complex and we had science class together. Why didn’t I find her earlier? Then we started to hangout. We talked. We worked out together. She had the same experience as me: she was new too ,but she came earlier. We almost talked about everything. She gave the first funny time at school. Actually, I started to feel happy and learned a lot from her. I can say she pulled me out of the darkness.
After two months in Virginia, my mom and I moved to California I lost contact with her, I missed her because of her I regained my confidence. It was hard. I had a new idea of life that, got tripped up by so many rocks in the past year, yet they always gave me lessons. There are not always good things in your life. Bad things happen, struggles will get you down, you will be sad and maybe you will lose hope, but after life stops joking with you, it will give you a better gift, things always change. All you need to do is accept problems, learn more from where you tripped and don’t give up, because time can prove you that all those things that you lost will all come back to you with the double.
