My experience at Jonathan Alder

When I first moved here, I hated it. I missed my old school and my friends. I enjoyed playing football with the boys I had just met. They made me feel welcomed. Throughout the season I did amazing like always. It was cool being part of the team because you always had a place to sit in the lunch room. The guys were always nice to me and I was nice to them. The kids above us were not always that nice though, they were always getting into fights and doing bad things. Once football was over I had a lot of friends and I was having a good time at Jonathan Alder. Even though football was over and there wasn’t much to do I knew basketball was coming up soon and I would have even more friends. Once basketball started up I made a bunch of friends and I made the team. We had a great season that year we went 18–2 and lost the league championship game. It really sucked because I didn’t even get to go because I had choked the night before and I had to have emergency surgry on my throat that night at 2:00 am. I didn't get released until 1:00 pm the next day and I had to miss the game because it started at 12:00 noon and I was still in the hospital.
