A young boy named Moose with sparkling eyes like the sea and wavy hairstyle as the morning breeze. He lived with ups and downs in his life, but mostly downs. He has problems when it comes to girls. He would always be thinking of being with one. One day, he was in elementary school and there are two girls in his class that always bothered him. At first, he had no problem being bothered and had taken it lightly. But after a while he couldn’t stand being bothered all the time, so he had hit those girls and pinched them.
Soon he went to summer school before entering middle school and found out that there is a student in the next class that went to the same elementary school with him. Turns out to be that girl that bothered him. Her name was Sophia. Sophia and Moose weren’t that close ever since the tragedy in elementary school. But After some time, a friend of Sophia told Moose that she likes him and Moose could hardly believe it but soon he started to have an interest in Sophia until one day. Sophia asked Moose to go out with her and Moose unsurprisingly said yes to her.
It’s that time again where fireworks come by in the month of August. Allen wanted to hang out with his friends but it seemed like not many friends are available except for two friends named Amy and Harry. These three fellows promised to meet in downtown where the fireworks will take place.
Allen is known to be an early bird as he always comes early to any occasion, therefore, Allen walked around the park in downtown as he waited for his friends. At the park, he passes many couples and makes him wonder when he’ll ever get the chance to be like them. Allen has always wanted to be with a girl holding hands unto the night sky but all he can do is dream and imagine it happen.
After a long wait, Amy finally messaged Allen that she’s almost at the park and she brought a friend of her’s from college. Allen who is a shy person becomes nervous as he will be meeting this friend of Amy’s. So, as Allen was walking back near the entrance of the park, he saw Amy with this other person (guessing it’s Amy’s friend). Allen decided to surprise Amy by following them from behind.
Allen’s last message to Amy was to meet near the fountain in the center of the park. So, as they went to the middle, Allen surprised them! Surprisingly, Amy’s friend almost fell unto the fountain but Allen caught her hand and pulled her back. Allen apologized and asked if she’s okay. She said she was okay and introduced herself as Tammy. Amy, on the other hand, was worried yet smirking at Allen for what just happened.
Allen then introduced himself towards Tammy and has never left her out of his sight. Not long after that incident, the fireworks started. The three of them sat down near the fountain and Allen received a message from Harry saying that he just woke up from an evening nap and asked if he was late and ended up not being able to come. Which means Allen has more time spending time with the ladies.
In the midst of the event, Allen was able to get to know Tammy better and is able to get her contact number. In the end, Allen didn’t really pay attention to the fireworks but more unto Tammy. Maybe it’s love at first sight or maybe it’s not. Allen has never forgotten her even after going back home because all he can think about was Tammy and wanting to be with her, he sees the future with this girl whom he has just met.
The transition between high school and college may be pretty drastic especially to those students who were slacking off. Well, worry no more with some useful guidance on your way to college.
Make Friends, Make Connections
Say Hi! Hello! How are you? Be the person to start the conversation. Believe it or not but people actually want to talk to you! They’re just afraid to start it off, therefore, it is up to you to get the ball rolling.
Let’s just say its the first day of college in a new following semester. it’s normal to see a batch of new students roaming around getting lost or what-not. That’s the best chance to make interactions with them since your both lost anyway or perhaps you guys might be in the same class! The possibilities are uncountable therefore take that chance before its too late. Your friends in college will also be your connections in the life after college, the life of work. Maybe you couldn’t land your dream job (hey, that’s normal buddy). Your friends could hook you up with their connections and help you get a job. That’s what friends are for, right? We help each other in time of need.
