The Thing About Inner Rings

Until you conquer the fear of being an outsider, an outsider you will remain. C.S. Lewis, The Weight Of Glory 

I transferred to my new high school a month after the school year had started. Uprooted, (literally) two months prior by hurricane Andrew, I’d spent the very beginning of the school year attending a temporary school, while we waited for military moving orders.

I was the quintessential “new kid”. Coming from a very small private school to this (much larger) public high school was a most unexpected and somewhat fear-filled transition. (Did I mention we’d just lost virtually everything we owned in a natural disaster of record proportions?).

It’s safe to say, I entered this new social arena already battling the clutches of fear. I was in every way, an outsider.

New state, new house, new stuff, new school–no friends.

    Recently I was really, really low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – 3Wxe
