Entering my first English class today, I walked in knowing no one. I looked around with a room full of peers around my age and took a seat at one of the computers in the room . After five minutes of sitting there, I then volunteered to move to the middle of the room and use my own laptop since there was a shortage of computers for the students. I and one other girl volunteered to sit in the middle with our own Mac laptops.
We sat there and listened to the young teacher explain the syllabus and everything that will be going on in this class during the semester. We were told that we were going to be starting our own personal blogs. Our first assignment was to write about a peer in our classroom. I looked across the table from me and there sat a girl around my age. We looked at each other and agreed to write about each other.
Her name is Arbana Lika and she is freshman from Macomb, Michigan. She lives on campus in the Valleys (unfortunely). She enjoys Kenny Chesney and Jason Alden, so do I! One of her favorite things about Western Michigan is how friendly everyone is. 🙂 She recently just got nose ring.. without her parents knowing! Her favorite movie is “Blow” with Johnny Depp. She has two little brothers that she misses a lot and is surprised about that. She is currently has the same relationship status as me! How ironic… boys suck! In five years she sees herself living in New York in a really gross apartment because she won’t be able to afford a nice one! 😉 The craziest thing that she has ever done.. was snuck out of her house at 2am with her friends to do a senior prank to her high school!
After meeting Arbana today, I can definitely see us becoming friends and hanging out. I’m glad that I had this opportunity to meet a new friend today during my English class today!
