Joshua Smith: Senior memory

Joshua Smith

It was my first day at a Catholic school and I didn’t know exactly what to do. I didn’t know anybody at this school, except Eva Webb. I was new and had my start as a sophomore. As soon as I walked into the building, I had trouble figuring out where my classes were, mostly because I didn’t know my way around the school. 

I walked into my homeroom. My first reaction was to just sit down and not say anything. At the beginning of every class, we had to do a prayer. My reaction to that was that I was freaked out, confused, and scared. After that happened, I had my first two classes and they were great. I had lunch after that. When I got my food, I didn’t know where to sit. Then, I met a girl named Ciera Simms. She asked if I wanted to sit with her and her friends and so I did. I met a lot of people at that table. I introduced myself to Briyana Morales, Sydney Brockenbrough, Darrell Worley, Kenny Williams, and other people at the table.

After my first day was over, I took the bus home, and I sat in the back because the back was more comfortable for me. While sitting back there, I met more people. I introduced myself to Daisy Elliott, Amani Fredericks, Lashante Fountaine, Ny’Mire Little, Ronell Whitehead, and other people. When I got home, I just sat in my room and I was just happy. I was happy enough to call Carroll my home now.
