Personal Narrative-Moving

Moving
I was quieter than usual as my family piled into the car. We were going to go see our new house. The house I didn’t really know how I felt about yet. My parents had always talked about moving into a bigger house when I was younger, but I never thought it would actually happened. I couldn’t think of any reason why we needed to move. I liked our current house just fine--with all the fruit trees and the small backyard, and the room that me, my older sister, and my brother shared. Plus--moving houses meant we had to change schools. My sister and brother already went to our new school, but I didn’t yet. Our new school was a public school, not private, so that meant they wouldn’t let me into first grade--I wasn’t old enough. I wouldn’t turn

    Moving On Justin left me. I went home Tuesday night and all that was waiting for me was an empty apartment and a note. Fucking coward. After three years he couldn’t even talk to me, tell me himself that he wasn’t happy. I shouldn’t be surprised; I knew this was coming, but it still hurts. I kind of figured I would be the one to end it. When I was ready. Would I ever have been ready? Maybe I was the coward. At least he had the strength to end something that wasn’t making either of us happy. No, fuck…

    established relationships with my animals. The topic I choose for my personal essay to send to college was not hard to figure out. My first horse was brought to me at 4 months old, where she strode away from human contact. After she gained trust, she grew to become wild and engaged in attention. Visitors would stop by her pasture to watch her prance and buck through the hills of the forest. Her personality reflected my own. Moving to North Carolina helped me create an identity for myself, while traveling…

    “What?!?” I blurted out promptly after my parents delivered the news. They just informed my siblings and I that we were going to be moving. Not just to somewhere nearby, either; to a different city or a neighboring state. We were going to be moving from our house in Virginia, all the way across the country, to Washington state. That is when I realized that my whole life that I had known was going to be gone. Life as I knew it was going to inevitably end. For quite a while, I could not come to terms…

    The word “moving” has many definitions. It can be understood as producing strong emotions of sadness, or it can be related to the process of changing one’s residence. It was not until my family moved, that I understood that sometimes it can mean both at the same time. From what I remember, it seemed to be just another cold, winter night in a small town that I used to call home. The streets diced the suburban neighborhoods into uneven pieces in which children sled and played with no worries. I was…

    Having close to no big change in my life, moving to Seattle can't be any more exciting for me. Being born and raised in North Carolina, I've always been curious about living in a new area of the country. Ever since I visited San Francisco in sixth grade, I've been in love with the west coast. It has nothing to to do with Hollywood, celebrities, or fame. I love the vibe of the west coast. I love how liberal and progressive Washington is. The beaches and weather in California are amazing. The mountains…

    better than here. Melanie would be part of that 90%. She has lived here for all her life, which sums up to be 18 years. Now look at it from a military child's perspective. It could be the best place they have ever lived. For Sydney, this is the case. Moving from Kansas to Nebraska, she struggled to find a place to call "home." But for the both of them, they later find out that "home" was with them all along. Kansas is oddly similar to Nebraska in the sense that it is all corn and wheat fields. The…
