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.
I 'm not a native of Pennsylvania. Anyone can tell that from my intense love of snow and fall, two things you couldn 't find in a South Florida city like where I lived, where temperatures were always high and foliage stayed the same year round. If you were born in Pennsylvania, you grew up hearing people tell stories of hitting a deer at night meanwhile I grew up hearing stories of people finding alligators in their backyard. Most people know what it 's like to move to a new place, whether it 's a new town, state or country, however, I feel my dramatic move along with the circumstances surrounding it are unique. It taught me that you can make the best out of even the worst situations.
I remember feeling helpless and confused. I wanted to see my dad and my siblings but I didn’t want to leave my friends behind and I really liked the school I was attending I had just gotten into the 3rd grade which I was very excited for. I didn’t have another option, I had to come here and looking back I’ve never appreciated anything more.
Now most people would be nervous of moving to a new school, but all we had to do was move through new hallways since our middle and high school are connected. Freshman year was probably the hardest year I've had looking back at it now and shaped me to be who I am today. Back in 2013 my grandpa had passed away from a rare form of lung cancer and my Mina (grandma) was suffering on and off from it, having no one to take care of her my mom would stay at her house 5 to 6 days out of the week and she would go there right after work. I would hardly see my mom except in the mornings before school and by than she would be sleeping after driving home from Danbury at 5am. My dad was hardly around from work and just not wanting to be home.
Moving to Cleveland was one of the worst days of my life.My mom told us to pack our bags because we were moving to one of the best and most beautiful places in Ohio. I was an idiot and thought Ohio would be just like The Woodlands. I thought they would have winning teams, lots of trees, and comfy neighborhoods with parks, but it was exactly the opposite.
My original name is shaylin uhlig i was 15 before I moved to Beacon hills, California. I am now called Talia Burley. I am 16 years old. Just like me and for the same dark secret my friends changed their names to Scott McCall (17 years old), Stiles Stilinski (17 years old), Erica tumblr (16 years old), and Jackson Kanima (17 years old). We are now forced to live at Beacon hills, California.
Change is something the whole world goes through at one point or another in their lives, but what’s vital is what we chose to do with that change. It was the summer of 2005, the weather outside was as heavy as an anvil, nevertheless this was the norm in south Florida. My childhood was one to reminisce. Life was perfect, but that all altered when my parents said we were moving to Atlanta Georgia. Things weren’t as easy as I thought they would be, but my biggest reason was my school
At the age of 6, my mother informed my siblings and I that we would be moving from Alaska to Washington. In the beginning, we were all drawn with sadness due to having to leave the place we called home, our family, and friends that we had made. My mother had told us it was for the better, we would be better able to thrive in Washington. At the time my father had work hours on end, while my mother was at home watching the kids. The job that my father had paid well, but required that he constantly works.
The bright colors of the autumn leaves and the brisk wind that hit against my face as I rolled the window of the car down to get a closer look at the sprawling campus I was passing as my father and I drove up a hill to the Skytop Parking Lot. Already, I was captivated by the environment and interested by the students walking around, discussing topics from their classes and different events going on that night on campus. I immediately felt comfortable and out of all the colleges I have visited, Syracuse is the one I can see myself starting the next chapter of my life at.
At the age 12, my mother decided to move our whole family (all 3 of us) from the big apple to the big Texas. It seemed like a good idea at the time and we were all ecstatic to move somewhere new. My mother left her job, we left the only home I knew, our friends, and family, but we wanted to start new. However after almost a year of being in Texas, my mother could not find a job.
As I stepped on the bus I felt a little nervous. This was my first ride on a city bus. I picked a seat near the front and by a window so I could see where I was going. I just kept thinking, “Don’t miss your stop. Don’t miss your stop.” Listening to the screech of the brakes at each stop and smelling the exhaust fumes made me miss my car. I had been in Baltimore for about two months and I have really yet to venture out and explore the city. Moving to a new state is a scary but thrilling experience. Being unfamiliar with your new surroundings is intimidating and a little unnerving at times. I lived my whole life in Florida - Ft Lauderdale, Florida, and I know the area like the back of my hand. So, when I moved to Baltimore my world became Cold
Have you ever dreamed about visiting somewhere and you started thinking your life there? Coming to Miami was my biggest dream in my entire life because I see how beautiful it used to be when someone came anywhere from the US and how other people treated them with respects. I guess all immigrants dream about coming to the US, although not everyone wants to come to stay, but I know for sure everyone in other country would like to visit one day.
