    Change Is Good

    We moved at least once a year.  One summer we moved four times.  I would always try to get a time frame of how long we would be somewhere before I unpacked.  In order to feel more normal I would put my room back in the exact same layout.  It made me feel like...

    My Story

    I only moved houses a couple of times. And then there was one point where I moved from living with my dad to living with my mom. The longest I've ever spent at one school is 2 and a half years. The shortest is 3-4 months. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.
