Since you were in Logic School you’ve always dreamed of the day to be inducted into a house. The feeling of being part of a family at school seemed like a dream come true. Once you got to 8th grade you started counting down the days until Induction.
Finally its here, the big day you’ve been waiting for. I remember being so excited and once I got in the MPB and saw the crowd, I panicked. I had mixed emotions when all of the houses were screaming and excited so I felt better. One by one each of my friend’s names had been called and I was one of the last few. Sitting there impatiently I hear my name called, at that moment my heart was beating out of my chest. I got up and ran to the front hoping I wouldn’t trip.
Once I got up there with the whole crowd looking on, the Sayers house came and collected me. It was such a nice feeling knowing I now had people older than me to talk to in high school. But I was also relieved to be sitting down and watching other friends get called up. Although it was a little scary not knowing anyone, we played a game to get to know everyone better.
This was the one day the freshman were the center of attention. Once everyone got to know each other a little better each house had a lunch where you got to bond even more. This day was beyond fun but also super helpful, it calmed lots of nerves I had of high school. The total outcome made me look forward to high school even more than before.
