    So I moved away from home

    and am now living with an aunt that's willing to put up with me. I did it. I left that toxic house and now this is the part where my life is supposed to begin, only I'm a little frightened and apprehensive. A lot of people here speak Spanish and my skills in talking in general...

    Update!

    So, I moved to San Antonio almost a month ago. I came here to go to school but I really had no idea what I was getting into and that didn't bother me at all! I had 3 roommates assigned to me so I met them as they were moving in. I got here first, which I loved, because I got...

    About three weeks ago I moved a thousand miles

    away from all my friends and family. My 90 year old grandmother has fallen ill, and I came to take care of her. I have to provide her with 24 hour care and I can't get a job or really get out of the house to make new friends. At first it wasn't so bad, but everyday that passes I...

    I Was 19 Years Old

    I'd met and fallen in love with someone who lived on the West Coast; I lived in New England.  We communicated by letter and e-mail and phone for a while, then he came out to visit me, and a few months later, I went out to visit him.  A couple months after THAT, I packed...
