Personal Observational Story
Once upon a time, there was a small boy named Sam. He was tired of Texas, his hometown, of cacti, EVERYTHING!!! He realized that he needed to move. So, he decided to move to San Jose. His feet trembled on the plane, as he second-guessed his opinion. When he got there though, it was wonderful!! As soon as he stepped off of the plane, a breath of fresh air entered his system. It was beautiful! He saw the blue of the sky, the greens of the trees, and the countless colors of the people. Everybody at the airport was very friendly to him, allowing him to do what ever he wanted, taking care of him. Eventually it became his bedtime, so he went to sleep. The next day, he would be going to his new school. When he arrived at Quimby Oak, The mural was fantastic!!! Wolves guarded the gym as he walked into the front office. “Hi”, he said,“ My name is Samuel Johnson, and I am not quite sure of which class I am supposed to go to.” Expecting a melancholy response, he was surprised to get a handout with all of his classes listed in order of period and a map of the school. “Thank you”, he said. He quickly went to his first period class listed on the map hurriedly. He was nervous, but a warm voice inside of his heart reassured him that he would have a great time in San Jose.
