The New Girl

by Jessie | Oct 14, 2014
Hey girls!

I am sooo sorry I haven't posted in so long. Hannah you're totally right to call me out on it! I guess I just forgot how super busy things get during the school term. Between gym, volunteering at the animal shelter and homework, I've been scraping to find some free time.

ANYWAY. I totes shouldn't make excuses, I feel so lucky that I get to write this blog. As I'm typing away, Mum is in the kitchen making cupcakes for my sister's birthday party tomorrow. Even though it's not her actual birthday, she's having two of her besties over for a sleepover, and they're going to do manicures and watch her fave DVD. She says I can join them (I have the BEST sister) but I don't want to be that annoying little sister. I'll see how I feel tomorrow.

The latest on the school sitch is that Mr James actually isn't that bad. I still NEVER talk in class (no one does) but he smiles, and tells jokes and stuff now. One he told yesterday made us all LOL:

Q: What do you give a sore pig?
A: Oinkment!

Actually, yesterday was a pretty big day at school. A new girl started and was put into our class (she only moved to Sydney a week ago). Her name is Dora and when the Principal brought her into the class she gave us all this HUGE smile and introduced herself. Alphabetically she now sits one desk over to my left, and the girl that would usually sit next to her was sick yesterday.

After a few minutes, she leaned over to ask me if she could borrow my ruler and without saying anything (obvs!) I passed it across to her. It wasn't soon enough though, because Mr James turned around and said, 

"Dora, because you're new, I'm going to tell you this now, but this is the last time I'll explain. In this class, there is NO talking. The only time I want to hear talking? If you've put your hand up to ask a question. Understand?"

Dora went bright red and because I was right next to her I could see her eyes fill up with tears. She didn't say anything, but just nodded.

Luckily at that moment, the bell rang for recess.

I caught up with her in the locker room and said, "Don't worry about Mr James, he's super strict but actually kinda nice underneath." Cass was there too and she patted Dora's arm.

You know when you're just about to cry but you're keeping it together, until someone is nice to you then it all comes out? That's what happened to Dora. She burst into tears, right there in the locker room!

Cass had the brilliant idea to take her to the big Oak tree (it's at the back of the playground) so we did, and then just told silly jokes and stuff until she started laughing. We clued her in on all of Mr James' rules so that she would know for next time.

When the bell rang she gave both of us a hug and said thanks. She seems really nice. I'm so happy that there's another friendly face in the class now!

I love making new friends!

    I heard so much about your awesome blog from some of the girls at school and I just had to check it out - this is so cool! Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks so much for being so nice at school the other day. I'm soooo embarrassed about crying in front of you guys but Mr James was so scary! See you at school tomorrow :)
