(I am a huge tomboy and all of my friends were boys, so starting high school was hard for me because most of them went to all boy schools and the high school I am going to has about five girls from my school. I am also in the advanced program, but I am very quiet. This takes place on the first day when I approach the girls that I know from my old school, who are all sitting together chatting and laughing)
Girls: *go quiet as I walk past*
Girl #1: um yeah. Would you mind going away?
(This shocks me because I didn’t know where I was meant to be and was just going to ask for directions. I go and sit down by myself in the other side of the class and wait, considering I got in 10 minutes early )
Teacher: ah, it’s (my name), right?
Teacher: nice to meet you (my name). So…is there anything interesting you can tell me about yourself?
Me: Well…..I know up to the twenty fifth decimal of pi!
Teacher: Go ahead!
Boy #1: Wow! I only know up to the fifteenth
Teacher: Wow. So, why are you both here so early?
Boy & Me: Oh you know, wibbly wobbly, timey wimey….
Boy & Me: You watch Doctor Who!
(All of this in perfect unison, as the teacher walks off to talk to other students, and we stay there talking about our dual interest in Doctor Who, Pi, and video games. And that is the story of how I met my best friend)
