There have been several occasions where I’ve felt my body respond to an emotionally charged situation, but most recently, I would have to say is going back to school. I am a 34 year old, single mother of two. I didn’t graduate from a typical high school due to issues at home but did wind up obtaining my H.S. Diploma from an adult high school. My family does not play much of a role in mine or my children’s lives. My ex was abusive towards me for ten years before I finally had enough and left, taking my kids to a domestic violence shelter until re-gaining my independence, currently providing them with a beautiful home. Although this is typical for many, I am the only person in my family to make an attempt at college and hopefully will be
that took care of me and never made me worried about anything. I past my High School with a lot of A's. I never got into trouble in my High School years, but it all went wrong when I moved away from my home. I moved to a little apartment in the market, not that long away from where I grew up. But it was different.Graffiti and gunshots were a part of everyday and every night too. I didn't really have any friends from High School because they all moved to other countries or cities, so I started on the….
came into the picture. Although at first I was wary of them, I came to love them. Late my junior high year, My dad lost his job and moved away. In addition to four advanced placement classes that I wasn’t ready for, my grades slipped. Him moving away caused a lot of emotional hurt and stress and began affecting my grades negatively my early high school years. In summer of 2016, I moved to a different school. This was my turning point, I wasn’t going to let it hurt my grades. I was back on my feet and….
hours. This flu has wrecked me despite how high my blood-OJ content is. Besides taking time to figure out just how many bugs are stuck in my lighting fixture, I’ve otherwise had about 57 hours to think. I’m a second semester senior, so that means I (erroneously) think I suddenly have tons of wisdom to share, even though I just learned that Café de Grasta even exists.
When I was little, I was never okay with getting sick and with the idea of not going to school — I was that kid that genuinely liked tests….
Sometimes, I experience days where I want to move away from everything I am and everything I know. I dream of the day I can start over in a new city, town, or country. I have lived in the same house since I was one years old. Over the course of my life, I have accumulated a large circle of acquaintances from church, work, and school. It never surprises me when I see someone I know in Target. I dwell in a small world, and I want to get out. I want to get out and what else is out there in the world….
she had always made significantly more than my dad and there was really no reason for my dad to work in the first place, he really just did it because he loved it. As my 4 brothers and I got older it got progressively harder on my parents being away from home so much. When a job opportunity with less hours and a sizable amount of money came to my mom she was quick to consider it. She eventually made her decision, consulting my dad very little, she made the decision to move across the country to a….
I just moved here and I am starting to regret my decision of moving here from Ohio and the big problem is my kids were just starting school. It’s terrifying all because this stupid lot a crossed the street that is full of trash that smells terrible all the time like something died. I’ve only lived here for about a month and my apartment stinks like a wet dog and I can’t get rid of it. Most of the time I grab my Febreze and use the whole can but it only smells like roses for about an hour. So the….
great to hear from you! How are you? I hope live has treated you well over the last few weeks. Visiting my friends wasgreat, even though the temperatures in PA were close to freezing! They have an awesome bagel shop in Har.
I can imagine how difficult the search for a reasonably priced apartment is! Are you looking for a room or do you intend to have a small flat on your own? Up to this point, I have only sporadically checked for rooms that are in walking distance. Which was far from a pleasant experience….
situation, I stand up and seek a change. This is what happened in ninth grade, my first year of high school and first year at a private school. My parents enrolled me in a private school, and I was passive until I was bullied.
My parents didn't like the education I was receiving in the public school because the classes were not academically rigorous. Consequently, my mom chose to move me to a private high school. She thought that it would be better because of the smaller class size, the smaller student….
to a new high school during senior year. I consistently failed assignments and could not stay focused during class as my . Most teenagers would have given up here as the disappointment from both their parents and teachers would have destroyed their hopes for a successful future. However, this anguish became a catalyst for what would become a significant restructuring in both my demeanor towards schoolwork and my perspective on the future. Against all odds I was able to bounce back from the discouragement….
