Example text

The first day of school, I called my new friends and they gave me this epic pep talk. By the time I got on the bus, I was psyched. Some of the kids on the bus made fun of me, but I was totally chill. Before I’d have gotten so pissed off I’d want to punch something. This time, I just looked at the bullies and told them off. They were shocked. Then, when I got to school, a bunch of kids came up to me and told me how cool it was that I’d lost so much weight. Even Christian said so. Some kids like Dylan were still jerks and they’d always be jerks.

I said. He and his friends kept laughing. I tried to push him away. Just then, a teacher came running over. We were both sent to the principal’s office and suspended for three days for fighting. When I told my mom, she was furious at my principal. ” she said. ” “I know, Mom, but that’s how the school is,” I told her. ” “I understand that, but what else could you have done? Tyler had you pinned down. ” Mom wanted to stand up to them. She didn’t have it easy where we lived either. Most of the other parents were snobs.

We decided to use it as our opportunity. That morning, we showed up at the principal’s office, since we knew the speaker would have to check in at the main desk. When the principal came out to meet her, we asked if we could talk to her. We were cool about it, totally respectful. The principal started to say no, but before he could finish, the speaker smiled and put her arm around me. It’s like she already got what was going on. Then she said she’d be happy to hear my story. The principal looked like he swallowed a bug.
