One of them I remember like it was yesterday. I walked into class I think it was the eleventh grade and the class was packed. It had to be about 30 people in the class. And I sat all the way in the back of the class. I have always been the shy kinda kid with a little bit of clown in him if paired with the right crowd. So the thing I hate most on the first day is making a fool out of myself.
What happened next was I sat down at a small desk. When I tried to slide in the desk I put too much pressure on the table and snap the top of the desk. It came clean off. Talk about embarrassment all I saw was head turns from the teacher to the students and I was sitting there looking lost. Wasn’t that bad but I was embarrassed because it was a first impression on the school year. All my peers act like they didn’t even know me after that.
The other one was about 12th grade I know for a fact. It was my first day in drama class. We had to do introductions, that weak thing you have to do every school year. When you introduce yourself to the class. To think that should be easy for people with writing aspirations. Well the writer in me decided not to show up that day. For one I tried to write something down but I couldn’t come up with anything for some reason.
It got down to the last few people to go up and the shy me said forget it and stayed quiet hoping the teacher wouldn’t notice me. But someone decided to shout Kenneth(First Name) didn’t go. Annoying right? I believe I said, My name is Kenneth Exum and I wear a size 15 and I play football. Out of all the things I could have said that’s what came out. I could have said I like to write, or anything. Like what was this brain thinking. The only good thing was people thought it was a joke but I was dead serious. No joking. It wasn’t that bad looking back but at the moment in time, it was really awkward. Anyways I know school started back up today so I had to get this one out. But let me know your most awkward first-day impressions in the comments, will love to read them.
