Challenge--Day 1

Today was a weird day.

As I sat in History B1, my friend Paisley King asked how I was doing with all of this boy drama. I explained that he doesn't talk to me anymore. The next thing I knew Paisley was walking over to him. My eyes popped out of my skull as she said loudly, "Say hi to Tessa!!! SAY HI!!!"

He looked over at me, cowering in a desk. "Hi Tessa."
"Ehh... h-hi," I gasped, "____."
"Say it again!" Paisley commanded, "Again!"
"Hi Tessa," He turned away.
Paisley got after him. "_____! Talk to her!"
"I don't know how to just start a random conversation!"
I planted my face in the desk. Suuuuuure you don't. You do it all of the time.

My heart pounded in my chest. I trembled. All I wanted to say was "I'm sorry." The words haunted me. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry for everything. I just want to be a good friend. I never said another word. Neither did he.

The rest of the day went past and I wasted even more opportunities to say I'm sorry.

I had almost forgotten about my previous challenge until I went home and got on Facebook. I saw the name of a girl I had had a lot of problems judging. I started a chat with her and asked her how she was feeling. I told her I was here to listen and she could ask anything. She told me about a difficult situation in her life and I talked to her about it and gave her advice. Soon I was telling her about my life and she started giving me advice. I ended up having a lovely conversation with her and I really feel a lot better about who she is rather than who I thought she was.

How was your day one?


  1. Two ladies in a dentist office talking horribley about people in their ward. It was hard not to think badly of them. I kind of did at first, but I know they are kind women so I focused on that! Love you Tessa!

  2. OH- you are keeping track of it!

    Sorry about the embarrassment.
