Transitioning from life in small town Hugo, Oklahoma to Mansfield, Texas has proved a challenge for me. Living in Hugo, due to the town’s small population, everyone seemed to know one another. Hugo High School, the school I attended before transferring to Mansfield, had nearly 300 students enrolled. Learning that Mansfield High had over 2,000 students was overwhelming for me in a way. At Hugo High School, the atmosphere and vibe was different. Teachers had known student’s parents and even had close relationships with some, having taught most of them. Adjusting to a new environment without my friends back home has been pretty difficult, but the friendly atmosphere surrounding Mansfield has made it all so much easier. The challenges of moving and adjusting so late in the year may have not been easy, but overall Mansfield High School has been nothing but great. My teachers are caring and the opportunities for success are much better than back home.

 

The first big change was adjusting to a much bigger city. Small things like figuring out the confusing traffic lights were different. My hometown had only three traffic lights and they were all much simpler. My inexperience with the traffic lights in Mansfield have led to a few close call incidents. Another was adjusting to a five day week of school. At Hugo High School students were in session 8-3:40, Monday-Thursday. An exciting thing about life in Mansfield is the myriad choices of places to eat. Hugo, Oklahoma had a limited amount of options, only having a Subway, Sonic, Braums, and McDonalds. My friends back home get a good laugh at finding out about all of the places I’ve yet to try.

 

Overall I couldn’t be happier about my move to Mansfield. I’m super excited to meet new people and getting to go here for my senior year. Go Tigers!
