“Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate but that we are powerful beyond measure “

-Marianne Williamson

I didn't want to be here, I didn't want to be at Buena either. I didn't even want to go to school in this city! My Dad did not give me the choices of,” Buena or Foothill,” like some parents who give their children the ability to make choices. Anyways, It was going to be Foothill. It was the end , finished,
kkeunnatda, acabado. Obviously, Foothill Technology was going to be the best choice if I wanted to get into college, and yes i'm going to have to go to college if i have any hope of one day driving a lincoln MKZ in the future. But I still wasn’t going.

Orientation was really weird. I didn't stay long because I had practice but stayed long enough for homemade cupcakes, crocodile hats, and running through parachutes. The first few weeks of school were kind of hard for me because it didn't seem like there was anyone at this school that were anything like my old friends that I've had for five years and longer, I found some people somewhat like them but I doubt I’ll ever find friends like them again. Also the first week of school I skipped my first period at least 3 times because it’s at Buena and the block schedule made go crazy with confusion.my first few weeks were filled with confusion, torment from family members , and struggling because of homework and practice time clashing.

Now that I’m at Foothill Technology high school I still don’t get what the big deal is. Yeah it’s a top rate school but I think the students are what make the school an actual school. You can have the best teachers, the newest technology, or even the cleanest campus, but without the students it’s just an empty building. Although I love my new friends I still think that no matter what if I can be successful at any other school, because it’s me that makes the student not the school, the teachers or the campus. My choice may have not been Foothill but I’m still going to be one of these people that make Foothill Technology High school one of the top Schools.
