This story has been sponsored by The Art Institutes When I was younger I had a lot of friends and after school we would hang out all the time and do a ton of really cool and fun stuff like go explore the woods and ding-dong-ditch people It was a lot of fun. But when middle school came around they all started doing a ton of sports and got really really crazy about it And I just really hated sports and so slowly they just stopped hanging out with me. And every time I tried hanging out they would all have sports to do. And in school they would only be talking about sports at lunch and stuff. And I could never add to the conversation. And so I just started like on the weekends not hanging out or doing anything because they could never hang out. So I just started playing a ton of Xbox. It got so bad that while I was in school, they would barely even talk to me or say hi in the hallways because they were so occupied with sports we kind of stopped being friends One time I tried inviting them all over for a sleepover so we get off fun again but they said they couldn’t because they all had practice and then later that night I saw some post of them hanging out on Instagram so I guess I just didn’t want to hang out with me anymore. So my best friend’s that I had for my whole life were like nobody anymore and they just completely forgot about me. I felt completely ignored and so alone. I didn’t fit into anything and I started to feel really bad about myself. I started staying home more and more
on the weekends and after school cuz, none of my friends wanted to hang out cuz they all just kind of forgot about me to do sports. So I started watching a lot of YouTube and I started watching a ton of channels that did really cool film stuff and animation and really cool stuff like that. one day I was really bored so I got the webcam on my computer and started making like stop motions which is a really cool way of animating with pictures and then And then also started to really like like live action film self by myself in my house And I started to really like it and I kind of got good at them sometimes I would show my parents them. And they said the were pretty cool and stuff so my Mom signed me up for this program for like film I and I went to it and it was really awesome because you’ve got to use like really like high quality equipment and really learn about film and get in depth with it and it was really cool and there are also a lot of really nice kids there that I became friends with they were all into film. My favorite part is directing the movies we make there and I feel like I finally found what I’d love to do. Things haven’t changed much for me at school because most of the kids only love sports. Even though I miss my old friends I’m really glad that I found my passion… …something that I really love doing all the time I’m really happy now We want to thank the Art Institutes for sponsoring this story and supporting our creativity to animate your stories.
