Miller Creek: Matthew the Spectacular

Long, long ago, when I was young....

It was a few years ago, in 6th grade- I had a teacher who everyone else didn't like. At first, I felt the same way. Over time, though, I started aknowledging that this teacher had a unique way of teaching. I like it - it was different, but in a good way.

No one else felt the way I did about that teacher. Whenever anyone talked trash about that persn, I would remain silent. I didn't want to argue with them, but i didn't want to agree with them either.

Sometimes I am faced with a difficult decision and opt to remain neutral, like in sixth grade when my friends did not like each other. Whenever they argued I had to stay out of it, or tell them to stop fighting. It was a very difficult task. This showed me that sometimes not taking a side can be a very difficult thing to do.

When I was in 6th grade, two of the friends I shared almost all my classes with got into a huge fight. They wouldn't talk to each other, and they both got mad at me for hanging out with the other friend. Finally I had to just make them friends again, no matter what it took. Luckly, they weren't too stubborn, or I would've had a real
problem...
