It all started one Monday morning, a sleepy Lujain woke up from a deep slumber, slowly with one eye open she headed towards the bathroom to wash up and prepare for the big day. Today, September 2nd, is the day she starts Middle School. As soon as she was finished getting dressed and getting her hair done, she headed downstairs to the kitchen to have the most important meal of the day, breakfast.
Her breakfast consisted of a yummy portion of Kellogg’s Frost’s Corn Flakes mixed with milk and a glass of water. As she was eating, her father appeared in the doorway and signaled the time for her to finish up and prepare to leave for school. She hurriedly ate the remaining bits of cereal and put on her schoolbag as fast as she could and hurried out of the house. (Actually it wasn’t that fast, she was still half asleep and moving at a snail’s pace.)
Half an hour later, a traffic free drive later, Lujain and her father pull up to the High School and Middle School Gate, she got out of the car and walked up to the big gate, as she was crossing through Lujain thought to herself, “Wow, this is exciting, it feels as if I am no longer a kid, I’m almost a teenager, I can’t wait for the day to start.” She hurried inside before the school bell rang, as she was walking past the cafeteria she saw a couple of her friends who mentioned to her that she should start heading towards the auditorium because they were having the first school assembly there, immediately she replied “Okay thanks girls,” and headed down there. As she was walking towards the big building she saw a lot of her friends from last year, some of whom she hadn’t seen since the beginning of summer (3 months ago) and she started saying hello to them and trying to catch up in that little time.
As soon as the assembly wrapped up, Lujain started heading off towards her first class and soon after she was drifting into one class and out the other. As the day went on, lunchtime approached and Lujain headed over to the cafeteria, oh wait did she mention to you that the cafeteria now served food from Casper & Gambini’s, I guess not but she thought it was pretty cool of them to do so. I know what you’re probably thinking, you’re thinking of how great it would be to go back to school just to experience some of that good food again, isn’t that right?
Once lunchtime was over, and Lujain had eaten her healthy food and socialized with her friends she started to head back towards her remaining three classes. Time flew by quickly as Lujain got to meet with her new teachers, made some new friends, and found out what she would be studying for the remainder of the year, pretty soon it was 2:00 PM and the final bell was about to ring.
Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring!
Lujain ran out of the class and down the stairs, past the cafeteria and all the way to the High School gate, she then started to walk slowly towards her sister Jacqui’s car and said “Hello Sis!”. After placing her schoolbag inside she got in the car and started to share the stories from her first day.
In short, Lujain enjoyed her first day of school a lot because she got to learn new things, met up with old friends and made new ones, and simply had a great time. Lujain is hoping that this new school year will be much better than last year’s with less drama and lots of good grades.
