Childhood is a time of blissful experiences for everyone. The dreams are huge and every child tends to find happiness in small things and incidents. Everyone has their own childhood memories and among them, some are pleasant while a few are sad. I also have various childhood memories and I would like to talk about the one related to my first day at school.
I was about 4 years old when I got admission to a local school. This was very exciting as I was fascinated by the new place full of people and large buildings. When my father announced that I would start attending school from the next march, I was elated.
I started imagining what my school and my classes would look like, and how many friends would I make. Finally, the day came and my parents came to drop me off to school. Till that day, I had seen it only from outside, and after taking my first steps into the school campus, I was anxious and felt nervous.
I was unsure of what would follow, and of the things, I was supposed to do. Very soon a teacher came and introduced herself while handing me with my books and stationery. I felt comfortable and went along with her to my assigned classroom. The classroom was huge and airy, with a lot of children occupying the desks. I was introduced to the class and all the children warmed up to me and I found it very easy to settle in with the class. It was an exhilarating experience, but my initial nervousness had died down to make way for happiness and I started to enjoy going to school in no time.
