Charles Edward the King Middle School which was the name of the school I attended. I was 5 foot 3 inches (the same height I am now). I was not skinny and I was not fat, I honestly thought I was a good size and I loved taking pictures. During 7th grade I would eat food just because it was in cabinet or refrigerator. My mother did not care as long as I was eating, and believed in not wasting food. In 8th grade, it was the end of the first week of school, and a boy that I knew in the hallway named Toby said to me “dang Molena you are getting fat!” I remember not saying anything but I did make a face at him. I honestly did not think nothing was wrong with my body and I did not let that get to me. In 8th grade my breasts became bigger, and males started to become attracted to them and saying inappropriate things. I felt embarrassed on the inside but on the outside I did not pay it any mind. Summer of 2009, I went to Florida with my friend Tia and took numerous of pictures. Looking at the pictures when they were ready, I started to feel insecure about my body. I looked at my arms and realize I had wings on my arms. I felt like a hippo about my body. My mother and father had big arms so I realize well maybe it is a gene thing. That end of the summer I did not eat so much and started getting ready for my freshman year of high school.
In middle school we had to wear uniforms. The only thing to make a person popular was either a person had nice shoes or they had nice accessories to wear with the uniform. I wanted to have the nice Jordan shoes but my mother could not afford it. My accessories on the other hand, I really had confidence when I wore it and tried to fit in there. Middle school was different for me, and we were no longer to form a line to get to our class and we was to walk independently. I liked the idea but at the same time I felt unsure of myself. People would stare in the hallways at me for no reason, and give me a mean look. I was wondering if they were talking about me or if I even fit in. I was the quiet type, I never said nothing bad about nobody because I did not want them talking about me. In mathematics, I was always asking questions and participating in the games that was instructed. Make-up was also a thing in middle school. I never wore make up and thought I would look ugly with it on. I never tried make-up until I joined dance and had to perform. Middle school was different for me and I had to adjust to it.
Myspace was the social thing during middle school. My mother did not want me to have a Myspace account but I created one anyway. If a person did not have a Myspace, then that person was considered boring. I was never the type to make friends in person but online seemed perfect for me. Once somebody looks at a person Myspace page and thought it was fascinating, they would want to know how their page was done and eventually a friendship was formed. I always kept my friends to a minimum in middle school, and did not want drama with friends. I was a little boy crazy in middle school, but it was always another female involved in the situation and I end up not getting liked along with false rumors going around the school. My brothers made sure boys should be left alone at this age. This incident taught me that everyone is not your friend and to stay to myself.
My mother and father had split up when I was in 4th grade therefore my dad was not in my life in middle school. I believed that not having a male figure in my life such as my dad had affect things in middle school. My brothers had stepped in my life and started becoming the male figure. I missed my dad in my middle school days and could not see him either. I could only do a phone call or write to him for communication. I started to have a temper in my last year of middle school because of the bullying verbally. A classmate of mine named Levert Young started talking bad things about me and I automatically said “Yo Mama!” and we started fighting and ended up in the principal office with a citation. My mother did not know what to do with me and my brothers was not around at that time. People talked bad about me in middle school and the only thing I knew how to do was to talk about them back. My self-esteem went down since I knew nobody liked me in middle school. I moved schools the next year for a fresh and better start.
My life in middle school was hard but I managed it and made a better life for myself. I made more friends the following year. I learned that everyone was not my friend and that they will smile in a person face and talked about them the next minute. I also learned that to be yourself and not to try too hard to fit in. I do not regret the decisions I made in middle school but I remember those times that made me a better person I am today.
