I grew up in and spent my entire life in California, and as far as I can remember, I always had a really joyful childhood, filled with lots of smiles and laughs. I remember my dad taking me to the park every weekend, and he would let me play on the swings as long as I wanted to. As I got older, my parents started teaching me more important life lessons and our family values. It still stands out to me that my parents always told me never to hold any resentment towards anyone, and I still carry that lesson with me today. Recently three months ago, I moved from California to Vancouver, which was like a completely foreign wilderness to me. At first, I felt completely lost, and I wasn't sure where I was or how I felt about anything. I would listen to music all day, trying to block out all my other thoughts, and I basically just shut down completely. Then I started making friends at school, and I started to feel a little bit more like myself again, even though I still miss home. Now I just plan to finish high school in Vancouver and see where I will walk on the path of life next. My plans are to return back to California in three years to attend university, and then settle back down in a place that feels like home.
