This is a writing assignment for Ron Paul curriculum, if you couldn’t tell from the title this the short version of the story of my life.
I was born on a cold snowing day in Maryland on January 29th, every birthday i hear my mom talk about when i was born. When i was born i wasn’t breathing and the doctors pushed this button and a bunch of doctors came rushing in apparently they were all foreigners and were all from different places.
And obviously i ended up fine since i am here writing to all of you guys, now we’re going to fast forward to when I’m four years old.
My siblings and i were always really close, most of my memories when i was younger were with them like when we lined up all our stuffed animals on the stairs in our house in Houston.
I learned to swim in that house and I have many fond memories of that home but my parents got divorced.
I think at that time I didn’t understand what was happening, I told people when I was older and everyone told me ” I’m so sorry” but I never saw it as a thing to be sad about.
My Mom and Dad argued And were very unhappy together , now they both are happier and I don’t see that as something to cry about.
At that time it was sad , I was losing everything I knew , my home , my friends , my parents.
We moved in with my mom and my now stepdad in Oklahoma , I was totally blind to what was going on. My siblings and I argued less and became closer in this unexpected sad event.
We grew up faster than normal kids because tragedy can help form maturity and knowledge that you aren’t the most important thing in the world.
I wouldn’t ever change my parents divorce , it help form who I am today.
My dad after awhile also moved to Oklahoma and we went back and forth from my mom and dads house.
In second grade I was being homeschooled for the first time , my parents had homeschooled my oldest brother before .
All the memories in the couple years there are a blur, expect for one night .
My dad had this lady come over at the time I didn’t know in a couple months she’d be my stepmom, she was nice but I still don’t know her at all.
We went on a vacation with her and it seems like only four weeks later , that her and my dad would get married.
I wasn’t there at the wedding so I can tell you much about it, before they got married we had seen her two or three times.
Fast forward to 2015 we now live with our mom and no longer go back and forth, think about moving to a new place and half of the time you can’t hang out with anyone.
My dads house only ever had family over , so the feeling was always like ” don’t bring friends over” .
Sometimes that home just had negative energy and every day was the same , wake up eat cereal, do school , eat leftovers for lunch , wait till dinner , eat dinner and go to bed.
I don’t ever think that’s what my dad was trying to do and he does love me but I couldn’t live in that home anymore.
I am happy and having social life and being homeschooled , I wouldn’t ever change anything that ever happened to me because someone is going through worse and can’t escape their issues.
