    My Father Used To Serve In The Military.

    I moved quite a bit as a child and several times as an adult. I have lived in and visited other countries. I hope I never have to move again!

    It's true. I am homesick. But where is home? There is an emptiness inside me today. I don't always feel this way. I think it's the break up and the fact that I will be moving yet again.I thought about California. My friend, Maria, moved out there and loves it. Another friend was...

    I started packing (again)

    and found all my old keys. Since my freshmen year (I'm currently a senior) I have lived in six different places between my mom and dad. I hate moving.

    Three Times

    I have moved three times, all to different states. The first one I don't remember, the second I didn't like, but was still pretty young, and the third I was actually glad for. I was sick of my school and was being bullied, so when I found out I was moving I could not wait to...

    I've been to a million schools.

    Moving to multiple high schools has been the hardest though. I wish I could've stayed at one place my whole life but then again, I've met lots of people so I guess I should look at the positives.

    My family moved around a lot up until I started high school and that was fine. I quite enjoy moving, I found it interesting and don't find it hard to settle in to a new environment but now I never know how to answer the simple question, 'where are you from?' My heritage is...

    I've moved around 30 times

    and it seems like every time I get situated with the school I'm at I move. I have no stability at all, it would be different if I was living with the same person each time I move, but I'm not. I get pushed onto different family members almost every time. I'm hoping that this...

    I'm not a military kid

    but I move around a lot. Sometimes bc of my moms job, or she hates the house. I've moved out of state a few times . She's a bit indecisive. I've been moving ever since the 4th grade. It's hard for me to make and maintain a friendship bc I know in the end I'll end up moving so...

    It Can Be Good.

    I'm fifteen and I move a lot. I've moved more times than I can count. I don't have a hometown, or childhood friends. My grades have taken some damage, but they're good enough. Most people expect me to be angry, or depressed about all of this, but I love it. I love being the new...
