A time that I was in an un familiar environment was my first day at my new job. I felt excited and nervous at the same time. Everyone made me feel very welcome and they were very kind.
When I was in Utah for the first time it was very big and unfamiliar. I was not used to the parking, buses and driving. I’m sure people thought of me as an outsider when they saw my driving/plates.
Thats a big environmental change as well.
Especially driving habits, like speed limit acknowledgement.
That is very relatable.
Attending Comic-Con was something different. Never before had I been around or even seen so many people in one place, nor walked several miles under a single roof in a single day before. As the day went on, I was increasingly exhausted. I don't recall much interaction with the strangers that time.
When I first moved here I was very unfamiliar with the environment because I’ve never been here before. I felt like an outsider because I knew no one here. It made me feel like I wasn’t going to have any friends but then I found some friends and I was very uncomfortable for the first few weeks then I eased down and got more comfortable.
Moving is always hard
Sounds about right. Like being dropped onto an Alien planet with weirdos that aren't quite sure what to make of you yet.
I felt like an outsider when I went to meet my college advisor. The lady who greeted me seemed confused by my appearance, I was wearing boots, jeans and a coat, and was unsure as to why Iwas there. My advisor was caught off by my appearance as well but tried to make me feel welcome by telling me about the area.
That would make me nervous as well.
Yeah that would be pretty nerve-wracking
A time when I felt that I was in an unfamiliar environment was when I started my job at the daycare. I was surrounded by kids and teachers where I was a floater going to all of the classes. I was surrounded by people 100% intact with their childish side and until I did that I was nervous and quiet.
Working with kids can definitely be a different environment.
Starting a new job is always scary.
New jobs can always be tough
Working with kids can feel that way sometimes
That would definitely take some time getting used to!
A time I found myself in an unfamiliar environment was when I was flying alone for the first time. There were so many people in the airport and I was very nervous about my layover. I didn’t like being in such a big place all by myself. Other people at the airport are usually nice and willing to help if I had any questions.
I’ve experienced that too, definitely not too fun
I’ve been there before
When I first moved to Salmon I didn’t know what exactly to expect, safe to say it wasn’t the warmest welcome ever. Almost nobody talked to me for the first few weeks, then I moved to the charter school and that was even worse. I’ll just stop there😂😂
I would have talked to you 😂
I moved to Twin Falls three years ago, I had to go to a different school and make new friends. The first friends I met were named Leo, steven, and Katie. I felt awkward but they all helped me fit in.
When I went to Alaska and it was my first time working on a commercial fishing boat. I was nervous for the working long hour and being the only girl on the boat. But everyone on the boat made me feel like family and in the end it pushed me out of my comfort zone and it was fun.
I think alaska is a really cool place
That is cool
When I started my job I didn't know anybody but they treated me like id been there for years and years. Them treating me as an equal helped me fit in and show my true personality faster than normal
Sounds like good coworkers.
My Unfamiliar environment I was in was meeting a new group of friends on a family vacation. I was kinda awkward and didn’t really know how to react to everyone. I wanted to know everyone so I sat and listened to everyone’s conversation and asked them about themselves.
Smart to just sit and listen ! Hahah
A time I was in a unfamiliar place was when I went to California. I was 15 and I was with my uncle that I’m not close with. I felt very uncomfortable at first but then started to open up and ending up having a very good time.
A new state & area can be very uncomfortable!
When i first moved here in 7th grade it was definitely an adjustment and a new environment i had to get used to. I ended up making some very good friends and loving it here!
I’m happy you moved here
So glad you moved here
You had such long hair back then.
There was this one time I went to a "summer camp" for coding on computers and cyber security and it was about a week long. I had no coding history whatsoever and all the kids around me knew a lot more than me and so I ended up being the dumb poor kid in a room full of computer nerds. It was kinda embarrassing but I just embraced it and got through it that way. Very interesting environment.
When I first moved to Meridian. It was the first day of school and the teacher was going over what he expected of us and how to pass the class. When this blaring load alarm started going off. We ended up all going to the fields but then some teachers said it was not a drill and to run. Me along with a group of students hid in some ladies yard near the school. Cop cars were all around the school. lator we found out it was a technical malfunction. It was crazy! A kid ended up breaking his arm jumping a fence.
That is so crazy
When I got hurt while I was in Europe. A lot of people surrounded me that I didn’t know and where yelling at me in a different language. I had to try to understand what they were saying while figuring out for myself how badly I was hurt.
I remember that very well!
Glad you made it out okay
When I was younger I went to the Philippines to pick up my brother from his mission. We were the only light skinned people around the island. Everyone wanted to take pictures with us and I could never go anywhere alone. It was very awkward situation and we also didn’t speak the native language.
That would be a very scary experience.
I would say kindergarten! Just because that is your first time on your own kinda sorta! You don’t know many people but that day gives you the opportunity for you to find who you are. It was awkward because you don’t know how to react really!
That’s a great example because we were all “outsiders” being introduced to school life and new friends.
I have felt like an outsider when I’ve been around a lot of knowledgeable cattlemen. They were great though and accepted me as well as would talk to me and teach me about whatever I desired to learn.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
