Growing up near a college town, my parents hoped that moving away would not be necessary. However, for my desired major, moving away was the only option. Throughout my college search, my personal choices were leading me out of state. While moving away was going to be hard for my parents, moving across the country would be even harder. When I finally chose OU, the news was a relief for my parents.
Around my junior year is the when I knew had to start narrowing down my college choices. I was very excited to finally see I was one step closer to going into adult hood. Unfortunately, my Aunt passed away during my junior year which put my family in a financial bind trying to pay for her funeral because she didn’t have any life insurance. We didn’t except an unfortunate event to happen but I knew I had to sty strong and stay true to my dream. While she
Before I moved to Vallejo I was dealing with controversy with my mother. She would degrade me and physically abuse me. I would not tell anyone, not even my father, because she always made me feel like everything was my fault, and that I was always the one to blame. Until one day when she took me to school no said "I do not want you living in my house anymore; you are going to move in with your father". I held in a lot of my emotion for most of the day until I told my best friend what was going on and that I would likely be relocating to Vallejo; where my father lives.
Throughout my life, in moving around from state to state, I 've come to the realization that it has negatively impacted my social life more than I would have assumed. Moving around continuously while still in grade school, promisingly makes it suck to have no choice but to be the new kid every year. Going from school to school has gradually made me socially awkward/picky in making friends because, I become hesitant in making friendships that just may only last for a year rather than it be long-lasting. Consequently, I’ve always thought to myself that I would never gain a lifelong friend that I’d grow to visit often and have a great relationship with after graduating. Though I thought that way often, in my junior year of high school, I seemed
A big obstacle in my life was when my parents divorced. I wasn’t like my other sisters who wanted to live with just one parent, I wanted to live with both. I overcame this by just spending one week at a time with one parent and then it worked out. I thought everything was okay until my Mom decided she was going to move to a different town. I did not want to have to choose where to go by just picking one parent over the other so the best thing that I thought that I could do was list all the pros and cons of living with each parent and there was more pros to living with my Dad just because I was already settled in that town so I thought it would be better.

Quitting school was not a big deal for me until I realize all the effects of quitting would bring to my life. At that time I didn’t care. I plan to marry a few months later after my high school graduation. I was happy at the time. Quitting school was a big mistake because when I went out to look for a job I couldn’t qualify for any of the good positions because of my lack of education.
What would happen if I went with my gut and not do what my mom wants me to do? Would my coaches think I am not committed enough to do that sport? Why could my mom just let me make my choices and let me learn from my mistakes? All of these questions were making my head want to explode. I only had a few hours to choose what I wanted to do and so many pros and cons.
When school ended in June of 2015 I wanted to continue on to my senior with the rest of my classmates. I wanted to move on like nothing had happened but I knew deep in my heart that I was not prepared for my senior year. For a good time after the decision to repeat my junior year, I looked at it as a failure. I hold myself to high standards and I could I not believe that I would have this “blemish” on my record. I was angry at myself for even being depressed in the first place and I felt like I had failed the basic requirements of being a human being.
Freshman year came along and I wanted to attend Sullivan High School. I wanted to come back to my hometown, I was just missing the people I started it all out with in the beginning. My dad and I had all of the paperwork finished already to go for me to attend Sullivan High School in August, but my mom refused and wouldn’t budge to let me go. She didn’t want me going to Sullivan, she wanted me to stay with all of my new friends I had made at Owensville. She thought my best bet would be to stay and proceed to go to OHS.
Mama thinks I’m crazy and she kicked me out. My vicious thoughts towards my father grew over time. Now I know it sounds weird to go to college for nursing and have vicious thoughts, but ever since I was a little kid, I didn’t want toddlers or babies to have to live through the thought of monsters hurting things you love. Age 22 I had lost my thoughts back when I was a sophomore in college. My college years are over and I’m trying to get in to a hospital to start working a real job.
