One good change that's happened for me is I'm going to hold off doing Arrowsmith for a year and do year 12 which is something I really wanted to do. I'm going to make friends. REAL friends. Who don't forget to invite me to their birthday parties or accidently on purpose save all the seats on the bench so I have to sit on the floor, I might even have a birthday party that people will actually come too!
So we have to move so I can go to a good high school for my last year. That's an in-between change.
A bad change is that the last Friday before my big year 11 exams started my cat got hit by a car. Most of you don't know but my cat Maple was one of my best, and well I suppose one of my only friends. I love cats. like really love them. I got Maple for my birthday last year and he was so nice.
His full name was his royal Fluffiness sir John Maple the first, when I got him he was a girl but he turned into a boy. I didn't mind, he was soft and cuddly and he always purred when you rubbed his favourite spot under his chin.
He always knew when I needed a hug or a huge furry cat to sit on my chest and purr. He was a big softie but some people thought he was evil because he used to be a stray. He wanted really badly to fit in my shoe shelf but he was too big.
And then one day he didn't come home. And he wasn't around the next day either. And then me and my sister found his body on the side of the road. Someone had spray painted his face blue. Mum and my stepdad came home from work and we buried him. I didn't go to school that day but none of my supposed friends asked me where I had been the following Monday.
I love you Maple and I hope they have the kind of food you like in cat heaven. RIP.
