My Life Story
I’m a 23 year old Army wife living in Bad Windsheim, Germany. Growing up I never thought I would be living the lifestyle that I am now. My past was definitely a little rocky, but I don’t think I would be who I am today without those past experiences. I would like to tell you a little about myself, starting with my past, going into my present life, and then tell you a little bit about what I envision my future to look like. Just to give you a little insight on my parents, my mom and dad were married at the age of 17, due to the fact that my mother was pregnant with my brother. Neither of their families believed in having children out of wedlock. My parents are two completely opposite people. My father comes from a very poor family of 5 children. I guess you could say the way he was raised taught him how to work and to save his money. My mother comes from an upper middle class family where money wasn’t always an issue.

When he was 16, he moved in with my grandmother. The reason he moved out was because he and my father would fight all the time. They never saw eye to eye on things, at least this is what my mother told me. I didn’t even know I had a brother until I was 5 or 6 years old. I can remember when I was little that both of my parents worked a lot. My sister was always babysitting me. My parents didn’t have the time or money to do the things that other families would go out and do such as going to amusement parks or hikes. Their main concern was taking care of their family. I remember a lot of yelling in my house, constant arguing going on. I think both of my parents were just stressed with all the bills they had, taking care of two children, and then still finding time for themselves. I don’t ever really remember my parents taking time for themselves. Somewhere along the way my father picked up drinking and he drank every day after he came home from work. My mother never seemed happy because all my father and her would do is fight and she couldn’t stand the drinking. I think the alcohol for my father was his escape from the chaos. Some of the fun times I can remember with my family, are the...
