Personal Narrative: Moving To Texas

Good Essays

Moving to Texas was gave me a completely different outlook on life. I was coming from a place where the average temperature was about 75 to a place where it was warm all year, including the winter. In Oregon I was able to experience all four seasons; spring, summer, fall, and winter, but Texas only had three: summer, winter, and August.

    when I was eight, my parents conveyed to our family that we were moving due to my father’s job. I found this bizarre since we had just moved to our massive house in Fort Wayne, IN about two years earlier. I questioned where we were moving to, and my mother told us we were moving to Texas. This time we were moving across several states rather than just a few towns away. Up to that point in lives, we had lived in Indiana, so moving to Texas seemed so far away and across the country. As we started…

    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…

    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…

    places, but there is one place I refuse to move too, because it would be too much of a culture shock for a boy who was born and raised in Middlesex County, New Jersey. The first place I would be interested in moving too would actually be the city my group did our project on which is Houston, Texas. I am not just saying this, because our group did our project on this location. After, doing the research I actually did picture myself living in Houston. I almost saw Houston as a warmer, cleaner New York…

    Who could've thought moving states could cause such a change? I never knew it could… this much. As the for sale was ripped out of my yard, we returned back into my previous house. This was the day we moved to hot and big Texas. We hauled all our boxes, big and small, short and tall, into the moving truck. “Let's go,” my mom yelled. We started our journey to Texas, and I could already feel sorrow in my heart. As we arrived to the gigantic airport in Orlando, we walked onto our flight, and I felt…

    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…
