The Moved!

Have you ever been told by a parent that you had to move across country? What was your reaction? Did it scare you more than any other situation in your life? I was cornered by such a move, at the time and I thought I’d never escaped. I didn’t want to start over. The thought of moving far away from my friends and family, leaving my school, my favorite teachers and all the great memories, I had can be tough.
The day began like any other ordinary busy school day in New York City. The endless ringing of my alarm clock blasted through my quite peaceful sleep like train horns at the Penn Station. My bare feet hit the cold ...view middle of the document...

And off to school I when.
Surprisingly, I arrived to school on time with no time to spare. I rushed down to Bella first hour class. Thinking about how different my life just became. How will I explain the situation to Bella? Bella was short for Isabella, she was my girlfriend at the time, and we had been dating for two years. She meant a lot to me. We did everything together. She was one of my best friends. How can one learned to deal with moving away from the people they love, while also learning how to adjust to a new way of life. Everything around me was different; I did not know what was true anymore. I felt lost, usually I go to Bella and she always knows what to do or say. But this time things were different, I had to figure things by myself, not even my parents could help me.

No I’m not in trouble. I stated to Bella, that we should take the day of school and head to the beach, because this could be my last day at school and that my parents and I were moving across the country. With a grizzled on her face, not taking me seriously, she agreed to go to the beach. On our way to the beach, Bella was anxious, and wanting to know why was I moving away. I didn’t know where to begin. I didn’t know what to say because “I didn’t know”, I didn’t ask my parents. I didn’t want to hear it, so I didn’t bother to ask. No one, child or adult, really wants to hear about moving across country and leaving behind everything. Just the thought of moving away was terrifying. Nevertheless I didn’t want to ruin what might have been my last day in my city, so I decided to make the most of it. When we arrived at the beach, Shattered destroyed shells were scattered across the crumpled sand, glistening in the sunlight as the ocean secretively stole them with swoosh from the soft wind,...
