Now, here I am, a junior at Mineola High School, and I feel ready for whatever will come after high school. As I try to figure out what I want to do with my future, I now know how much I love travelling and people and hope my career includes that. Moving helped me see my flaws and strengths. It helped me recognize that I am sometimes too diffident and circumspect. While in Mineola, I managed to ameliorate my social skills enough to be voted by my classmates as “Class Favorite” and have also joined activities I normally would have been too shy to take part
Moving from a house to another is pretty difficult for most people, for me, it was more of moving from a continent to another.Four years ago, I moved from Iraq to the U.S.A. for a better life, a life that is full of opportunities.I had to make sacrifices in all kinds of ways.January 17th, I said my goodbyes and left behind my friends and most of my family members.The goodbyes were very sad and difficult, but moving to a place to start my life from the scratch was possibly the biggest intimidating change.
Moving was something that I thought I would never have to go through, but I did, and it made me see the bigger picture of things. Little things in my life have changed since I have moved, little things that I didn’t really have appreciation for, or didn’t even notice before, are some of the things I miss the most. The sayings, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” and “You don’t know a person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes,” I understand now that I have moved and experienced judgment and been on the other side of the glass. Moving taught me these things, which make it seem like I’m still upset about moving, and in some cases I am, but I cannot ever stay upset once I think to myself and wonder what I would have ever done without the people that I have met in Worland and the friends I have now. I can’t look back to when I lived in Casper and think of how my life would have gone on if I had stayed, and that doesn’t bother me because I actually think life is a better and a lot more fun here than it would have ever been in Casper. Moving has taught me some really important life lessons and has greatly impacted my life in a positive way, one that I will never
In life, it always helps to feel included or to have something to relate to. Mine just so happened to be a television show. I’d like to think I identify most with the characters from “One Tree Hill”. In this show, it begins while the kids are in still high school, juniors actually. Later in the seasons it continues on with their life outside of school as adults. The choices the characters made throughout the series and the many challenges they faced began to relate to me in different ways. Not so much the trials they faced exactly but with the way the characters handled them in general. As cheesy as it sounds, this is why the show has so much meaning to me now.
My family and I were moving from Boston, Massachusetts to Houston, Texas. My Dad’s job was relocating to Houston, Texas because of better resources for the company. I was going to have a new house, new friends, and a new school. Everything was going to be new and different. Sadly, moving is not as fun and exciting as it seems. It’s as sad as a kid without candy.
I’ve moved several times leaving behind family and friends. At one point my husband and I were tired of moving and saying goodbye to friends. My kids were sad leaving their school and starting all over again. Our last stop was North Dakota twenty years ago. It has been a blessed we got jobs we loves and my children ended with good friends, a good education, and jobs they loved.
"Fresh off the boat" or "F.O.B" for short is a term which means carrying your sense of fashion and culture from your country which clashes with the current country's culture. That term is what I was referred to when I first started school in America. I did not understand the American culture or the way the system worked.
I first experienced this title last year via a demo of the first episode. I assumed I would like it based on that, but I didn't realize how the game would pull me in, nor that it had the potential to become my favorite game of the year.
Figuring that I might be a dog for a long time, or forever, I decided to put my third plan into action. I made my way to the TV remote and turned it on. Having young children means that my parents are strict about what we watch, which mainly goes for my brother and sister, but that means that Netflix, and anything rated Pg-13 or R, consists of a password. If my parents actually wanted to keep us away from these types of shows they should have came up with a clever password, 1234 is NOT clever! After turning it on I went straight to Netflix and turned on Bob’s Burgers. Bob’s Burgers is quite possibly my favorite show of all time, and my parents would know for sure that it’s me if I was watching it.
Although the idea of moving was thrilling, it also became terrifying since I had never moved anywhere other than around the Cape, so whenever I did move I hardly felt the difference. But this was a completely different change since I would be moving across the country! When my friends at school found out they were happy for me and also melancholy about me leaving. Some of them I had only just met and others I have known for years like my friend Cindy, who I have known for 4 years. The two of us were close and had even planned to move to California together after high school. That was one of my motivations to move because if I moved then it would be easier for her to join me. After a long talk, we agreed to stay in contact and depending on our situations, she might even move in with me during our senior year of high
As i was growing up my environment changed frequently every two years due to the fact that I was born into a military family. So we would move whenever it was time to move, but that never changed who i was. Moving became a strong habit that I had to get used to. Moving away from where I was borned and how I was raised. I was a country girl who was born in Portsmouth,Virginia but was raised in the country part of Suffolk,Virginia, where everyone was related and always happy to see you. Since I was raised in the country,I had to walk miles to our neighbors. And if we didn’t walk, then we would ride dirt bikes or four wheeler to meet up together. The older I became the further we would move. Which caused a huge impact in my life.
Moving form neighborhood to neighborhood for some could be a hard task to accomplish. The emotions of leaving a place I had been living the past seven years of my life were somewhat confusing. The feelings were all mixed between happiness, sadness and excitement. This new experience was something that not only I, but my family as well was going through and for that I was sure. We all had family members and many friends who we were not going to see for a long time but I looked at this in a good way. For me this was more of a positive experience than a negative one. Looking at the negative side of moving to a new city for a better life would be ungrateful. The time it took for us to move, the things we went through, or as I call them experiences,
I grew up as your typical military brat, living all around the world and getting to experiencing many cultures. When I was 10, my parents broke the news that we were once again moving. This time, we were moving from Tallahassee, Florida back to Bavaria, Germany. Thus, I was afflicted with the thought that I would have to start my
