Why do some people move away from their hometown and some never leave? The answer to that is they probably want to move out of the cold, move to another state for college, they want to live in a state that has four seasons, for different job purposes, or even to live closer to their family members. Moving away is a whole different reality, depending on if you 're moving away from your family, to college, or even to start a life on your own! When moving away it 's a whole new journey. From not having to do very much living with your parents, fending for yourself 24/7, buying food, and making sure you get up on time.
A Moving Experience Moving houses had always been strenuous for me, especially since my family had moved multiple times. This was my family’s third time moving. We were moving from California to Indiana. Even though it was my third time moving, I still found it arduous to move locations and to say goodbye to the friends I made in California.
Patetic, when people move, they make new connections and relationships with others. When they move away, they meet new people, make new friends, explore their surroundings, and so much more! Mobility lets others gain experience and learn more about themselves. Also mobility makes it easier to visit those who have moved away, or those that people have moved away from. When my uncle had moved, he moved for a better paying job that he would enjoy, and he always comes to visit when he can; for example, when my grandmother was in the hospital, he came all the way from Oklahoma to take care of us for a week or two while she was getting better.
Moving to America brings great opportunity to an individual and their family. When my parents moved to America, success was within their reach. My parents could purse their education and soon find their career. My mother has always explained why she was so relieved when my grandparents first told her that they were moving to America. My mother knew that her and her family will be free, they would not have to live in poverty anymore. My father explained to me that life in Vietnam was not easy, my father stressed that life was rough in Vietnam. Kids had to work hard for their families, leaving them no time for school. Moving to America brought a great feeling to my parents, but when they arrived it surprised them the most.
My move from my home state of Maryland to Georgia has greatly influenced my goals and perspectives. When I lived in the city area of Maryland, I had a limited viewpoint of life as a person who knew only of the city and had relaxed belief of living only within my comfort zone of what a city had to offer, however that changed when I moved to Georgia. Georgia proved itself to be a very different experience for me. Georgia is a lot bigger than Maryland so there was more place for its cities to be more spread apart and the environment had a more forestry background than what I knew at the young age. The change of setting and accustoms associated from the very different places made me realize that depending on a person’s position one object can be
All of the time I lived in Laredo and in San Antonio has changed me, when in laredo, I hardly had any friends because I kept moving from school to school and house to house, then it all changed when my family and I moved here to San Antonio, we found a wonderful house with good schools and
I was born and raised in the city of Chicago, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Everyone from my father to my mother’s side of the family lives here, so if I suddenly leave to live in a different city, I would lose a big part of where I came from. Family is very important to me since I know I’ll always have some to look after me that is why when I think of Chicago, I think of all my family members here. Another unique thing about Chicago is how it’s always busy. Wherever you are, they are people running around trying to get to work, partying from night till the sun comes out, or protesting about something wrong with the government.
In the spring of 2012, I was informed that we were going to move. As a thirteen going on fourteen year old, the news was rather jarring. I was born and raised in that house, in that town, it was all I knew. We packed up our belongings and began the 678 mile journey to our new “home.” Moving from Hartland, Michigan to Durham, North Carolina was not only immense in distance, but in way of life.
Some people seek to immigrate and leave their hometown when they get this chance. Immigrants quickly realize the differences between their hometown and the new place they live in now. I'm one of these immigrants who feel these differences between my hometown , Maghagha, and Jersey City. The first day, I knew few differences between both of them. Gradually I observed many differences such as weather, infra structure, and public services.
My dad moved to Tennessee. He said that he needed to leave Wisconsin. He was depressed and that he would be a lot happier if he was in Tennessee by my grandma. He wanted to go down there to get his diploma and live a better life. I didn’t understand what was so different about Wisconsin.
The First Time I Moved We were sitting at the dinner table, my mom and dad said we need to talk. It scared me, because when they say that it usually means something bad had happened. They said “in a month we are moving to Kansas.” It saddened my sister and myself.
Why do people leave their homeland? Some people are forced out, other people leave willingly with a smile on their face. Perhaps they were being discriminated against, perhaps they just wanted to make a little bit more cash. The people of the Plymouth colony were not allowed to practice their religion in England so they came to the New World. The people of Jamestown heard about the riches in the New World and high-tailed it to the New World to get rich.
One day I came back from school and in the front of our house was a U-Haul truck. So then I went to my parents and said “are we moving” and they said “we are going to Fresno California”. I was nervous and scared because I was comfortable in Modesto, California and in my school this is my hometown and now I 'm leaving it. So when we arrived to Fresno we stood there a couple of weeks and then the house had a lot of issues with water pipes,broken heater and there were a bunch more issues. Then my dad said “maybe we are not meant to stay here”. So then we moved back to Modesto and we got our old house back I was excited because we came back home. Then I went to school the next day and told my friends that I moved back to Modesto and how much issues
My mind takes me back to a time when I woke up to the aroma of food from street vendors through the homes that sit in a tightly compacted neighborhood. I remember growing up as a young boy in an area referred to as “La Laguna” in Mexico. This city was dry in rainfall levels and hope, my family were in the pursuit of an improved standard of living when they decided they wanted to move to the United States.
Moving is always hard. It is harder if you are moving from your birthplace to a culturally different country after spending most of your teenage years. I moved from Bangladesh to New York about a year and a half ago and let me tell you, it was not easy. I had to leave the place I grew up in, my friends and relatives and start a new life here in America. Probably the only good part was that at least I was with my family throughout this hardship. I believe it was one of the most important events that have made me a lot more mature and responsible. Since English is not my first language, it was hard for me to cope with the American education system. I even had to teach myself how to have a conversation with people in English. I think myself as a risk taker which is why I took IB English to challenge myself and get better at my knowledge
