Senior Year

Most people say high school was the best time of their life. They say it was a time for them to really understand who they are and get the friends that helped shape who they became. Unfortunately for me my senior year and majority of my years in high school were the worst and nothing but drama. Senior year I was in a program called TV production at Hylton high school. In this program we would be responsible for making sure that the morning news was done for the whole school to see. We would spend our class time doing the morning news and we would also work on projects that we ultimately would decide on. The principle would sometimes as my teacher Mr. Davis to make a certain clip for like the Homecoming dance or other activities and we would spend that time working on it in class. Some students were so dedicated to the class they would even stay after school and shoot projects. We had the class every day and I had it 6th and 7th period.

There was this girl named Courtney Gonzalez who I knew since freshmen year but we had never had a class together. We ended up having the TV production class together and became very close. We started hanging out in class all the time and eventually got to the point where we would even hang out outside of school. She lived in the same city as me so our houses were only a five minute drive from each other. Courtney had a boyfriend that she was dating for a while named Nikoli, I had never met him before but he always seemed like a very nice guy. He went to Garfield high school which was the same district as Hylton high school. Me and Courtney had a little notebook that we would write notes to each other in throughout the day. We made our own depiction code so that no one else could read or understand our notebook but us. I enjoyed Courtney so much because I thought she was a true friend.

Even though she had a boyfriend she was not faithful to him. It was none of my business so I just would listen to whatever she had to say about someone she was messing with. In our book we had a section where we would list the people we were talking to or had a crush on. Her list of course was a lot longer than mine. She had just gotten a job at Panera bread and became friends with this girl Izzy who just so happened to be a lesbian. Izzy was dating this girl named Mariam but they were always on and off over silly little things. Courtney told me about Izzy because she was confused on how she was feeling about her. She thought that Izzy was very cute and they started hanging out and feelings that she never thought could come up started forming with Izzy. She thought something was wrong with her because she clearly wasn’t sure what was going on but as her friend I supported her the whole way.

 Her and Izzy formed feelings for each other and decided to go behind their boyfriend and girlfriends back and start messing around. Izzy was not aware that Courtney had a boyfriend or that she was also talking to several different guys. Eventually Courtney started becoming really good friends with my ex-boyfriend AJ who I told her was off limits. She went behind my back anyways and would tell my friend Taylor about it. Eventually my friend Taylor felt bad about not telling me what Courtney was doing behind my back and she decided to tell me. When Taylor told me this I had never felt so betrayed by someone before. I didn’t know what to think of Courtney and it hurt my feelings so much.

I ended up telling my friend Ashley about how Courtney was messing with my ex-boyfriend behind my back and Ashley was extremely mad. It just so happened that her and Courtney’s boyfriend Nikoli were best friends and Ashley decided to tell Nikoli about Courtney’s indiscretion. I didn’t really want Ashley to tell Nikoli but at this point she was just trying to look out for him and do the right thing she thought possible. Nikoli decided to break up with Courtney and for some reason she thought I was the one who told Nikoli about what happened between her and my ex-boyfriend AJ. It would have been impossible for me to tell Nikoli because I had never met him before and I didn’t even know his number or last name.

Courtney was so angry with me that she decided to text me and yell at me about it. My mother at the time was very ill with thyroid cancer and was going through chemo. Courtney decided to text me and say “I hope your mom dies.” When I read that text I was so hurt. I did not know what to think of her after that. Courtney began talking about me to people at school saying things that were not true and I had to deal with people believing it and thinking less of me for it. Courtney had a new Kia SOUL 2011 car that her dad had just bought her when she got her license. I was so angry with her for what she said that one night so me, my friend Kayla, my sister Julie and her boyfriend Kyle decided to go to her house and egg her brand new car. I was strictly acting on impulse and figured she would never find out it was me who did it.

I ended up becoming close to this girl named Jordyn who was not a fan of Courtney. There would be times that we would drive by Courtney’s house and she would be like “man we really should key her car or something.” I was still so angry with Courtney that I would agree with Jordyn but we would never act upon it. A few months after I decided to egg her new car someone else decided to go and egg, bologna, whip cream, and key her car. I was not sure who had done it but for some reason I was in class and the cops came and escorted me to the security office.

I was not sure what was going on but I was told that Jordyn who was supposed to be my friend decided to tell the cops that I was the one who egg, bologna, whip cream, and keyed Courtney’s car. My feelings got hurt because Jordyn heard about it and assumed it was me without even asking me first. I don’t know if she did it because she thought I was the only one with a vendetta against Courtney or if she was just mad at me for something. She did a written statement to the cops and I had to explain to the cops that I had an alibi for the night that this incident happened. I was with Kayla and my dad watching the new Iron Man movie. They called Kayla and my dad to confirm that was what happened.  Jordyn told everyone about what happened and said I did it and I lost many friends that day since they believed Jordyn over me.

Courtney’s mom called the security office to talk to me and she asked if I had done that to her daughter’s car. I told her “I did not do the most recent incident on her car but several months back I did egg Courtney’s car because I was upset with what happened to our friendship.” Her mother said thank you for being honest and you can leave. Later that day my mother, Courtney, me and Courtney’s mother decided we should meet to talk about everything. We went in the conference room at the school and we all said sorry to each other and I started crying saying I missed our friendship. Courtney’s mother thought I had some type of mental issue so she decided to slide to my mother a mental hospital card and said “if your daughter needs help you should go here.” My mother was really mad about that comment and we left.

Several months later we got a letter in the mail saying that Courtney’s mother was suing my mother for the damages I did on her car when I egged it many months back. In the letter she claimed that there was a chip in the car from when I egged the car and I knew it wasn’t true. She was suing us for $2,000. Since I was only 17 years old Courtney’s mom had to sue my mom rather than me since I was a minor. After the whole Courtney issue happened I started getting bullied by her in the TV production class. My mom decided it would be smart to counter sue her mother for $2,000 for bullying. My mom and I got lucky because we found two lawyers who would represent us for free!

We went to court and ended up winning the case and Courtney lost because she had no lawyer to back her up with no actual evidence that I put a chip in the car and I won the bullying because the TV production cameras are always recording and I got on tape Courtney bullying me. I had hard evidence to prove what she was doing. I was unsure why Courtney’s mother felt the need to sue us but one of my theories is because she probably thought I did do both incidents on Courtney’s car and that if she sued me id admit to it or that she was just simply a harsh person looking for revenge for hurting her daughter’s feelings.

Several months later my friend Kayla and I went to Panera bread to get food and we saw that Courtney was no longer driving her brand new car. She had gotten a much older car because what happened is her dad wasn’t making the payments on her car and it got repossessed. Courtney’s mother sued my mother and me because Courtney’s father was $2,000 late on the car payments and she figured suing us would be the best way to get the money. She thought wrong and Courtney allowed this to ruin our friendship. To this day I still do not talk to Courtney and if I see her at our high school reunion you won’t see me trying to talk to her at all. I no longer have interest in knowing what she’s doing with her life because the way she tried to ruin mine. My senior year was the worst year of my life. I will never forget this story because it helped make me the strong person I am today. I know it was a rough year for me but it taught me a lot even though it was hard to deal with. Be careful who you become friends with because you never know how if they will betray you or not.
