The Way I Choose To Live My Life Write An Essay About An Important Event In Your Life

972 words - 4 pages

Perhaps the most important thing that has happened in my life was moving up here. The fact that I left my home in Los Angeles, willingly, to move up here with my dad, was quite unexpected, at least for everyone other than me. At three in the morning on July 3 of this year, I packed my stuff in my car, and left my mom's house. Many people assume that because I moved up here, my whole family came too. Not the case at all. I moved by myself. And I drove from Los Angeles to Sacramento, by myself at three in the morning. I had many reasons for leaving, some of which were my friends, family, school, etc. I have to say; I always knew that I would do it. My friends however, did not. I talked about it with them on numerous occasions; most of them agreed that it would be the best for me to leave, to start over, to have a new beginning. They all said they were jealous and that they wished they could do the same. They obviously thought though, that it was just one of those things. I have come to realize that everyone, at one point or another, just needs to leave and get away from everything.It was hard moving here, and starting over, especially considering the fact that it is my senior year in high school. Senior year is supposed to be the best, the year that everyone looks forward to since, well, forever. Being with friends that you've known forever, parties, senior benefits, etc. I was lucky, I knew a few people when I started school. I don't know what I would have done with out them. It takes me a while to warm up to people; I cant be myself until I feel comfortable with the people I'm with. Since no one knew me well, it was really difficult for me to open up. It definitely took a lot of getting used. The school, the people, the Nor*Cal slang, living with my dad, everything.I have come to believe that moving here was the smartest thing I have ever done. Hearing about all the drama, drugs, etc., from my friends that I still talk to in L.A. makes me really happy that I'm not there. I am grateful that I don't have to see my friends in compromising situations anymore, I am grateful that I don't have to deal with all that screwed up crap that goes along with drugs and alcohol. Things change, people change, and I got sick of it. My friends started using some really terrible drugs earlier this year, and by the end of my junior year, I was fed up with ALL of it. They started to change, personality wise; they weren't the same funny, goofy people that I once knew. I felt like my life had...
