Kids, in 2012, I decided I wanted to shift courses in the next school year. I really wasn't enjoying my course anymore. I didn't know if it was just a sense of dread from Jill's rejection, the organization not being fun anymore, my course being serious and not being what I thought it'd be. It was hard that my friends were noticing a change.
Karina: Hey, are you alright?
Ralph: What? Yeah, totally, definitely, totally, I'm fine, totally.
Karina: Well, for one, you said "totally" three different times. Are you alright?
Ralph: I am fine. Totally.
Karina: That's four now!
The worst part? Your Aunt Monica shifted to another course as well. So I was still with my other friends but it wasn't the same without my best friend. It felt like a piece of me was gone. Someone I trust was gone so it's from seeing each other daily to just chatting online.
I had made it known to my classmates that I was shifting courses. I wanted to change to a different course and see how my luck would turn out. I was unsure of my course. I was unsure of my future.
It all changed when I was told my family and I were going to Canada the following year.
