I hope you are enjoying my first blog hop, and even more I hope you join in the fun!
Here is how it will go. I have posted seven different school/fall topics for you to use as blog posts. You can write them for seven days in a row, scattered throughout the month or however you so choose! Here are the topics: first day of school, favorite school supply, teacher who made a difference, apples, a new box of crayons, new friends and what’s in your lunchbox
All I ask is:
- Please copy and post this image with your post
- link back to my blog https://teacherturnedmommyblog.wordpress.com/ so we know who is playing along
- have fun! remember you can take these topics in any direction you want… just use the idea as a jumping off point.
Make New Friends
I think this is one of those topics that I’m not even close to an expert. I grew up in a small town and went to school with a lot of the same kids for years and years. I didn’t make a lot of friends in that group of kids. My junior year at school I changed schools. I was able to make friends. This was a small all girls school.
When I went to college, I also went to a small college. I found that I did a lot better when I’m a big fish in a little pond.
What I find with me is I have a hard time making friends, but I’m a good friend to those who do befriend me. I am still in contact with some of the people at the second hs as well as from college.
I tend to be a good co-worker, but that doesn’t mean I’m really friends with them. I have neighbors and acquaintances, but I’m not sure I have friends here.
This dynamic is very different from my parents and my brother. They have friends and make friends easily. Colby has a lot of friends too.
I guess there is something about some people that make people drawn to them, and that isn’t a part of who I am… and in a lot of ways I’m ok with that now. When I was younger I didn’t understand it. Every child wants to have friends. They want to be liked and have others want to be around them. But, then I think there comes a phase when you realize that you don’t need a ton of friends. You need few good ones. I’m just glad that I’m married to my best one.
