30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 2

Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot.

In 11th grade, I was in a trigonometry/pre-calculus class in preparation for taking AP Calculus my senior year because nerd. I don’t remember what was happening, but two of my classmates got into some argument about a math problem we were working on and I was trying to broker some kind of agreement on either side. My teacher, while trying to settle the matter herself told me “You’re going to work for the UN (United Nations) one day, because you’re always trying to make peace.” That really stuck with me because I later in life I did realize how concerned I always was (sometimes to a fault) how okay everyone else was with the situation. If I’m in a group of people I often sense the person who is not really feeling it or not having as good a time as the others. I don’t know where that came from, but maybe in one of the later writing challenges, I’ll figure that out.
