Personal Narrative- The Move that Transformed my Life

After reviewing my life, I have decided my life defining moment was when my family and I moved to Texas from Oklahoma. I consider this move my life changing moment because it changed so many things in my life. This move set the stage for an entirely new life for me.

After several violent confrontations and threats on…show more content…

We packed everything we had into U-Haul in the safety the night provided. In about four hours of continuous packing our roots were lifted. We headed due south to a place called High Island, Texas. I had only been there one time before when I was little. The justifications of why we chose High Island, which was six hours from our home, was one of my aunt’s lived there and the distance from home was great. After a long ride, we saw our new home for the first time. It wasn’t luxurious, but to a couple of young children like us it was cool to live on the beach.

That year I started at quarterback for junior high and from there everything started to look up. If I was to go into details of all the success I had it would be bragging, so I am just going to say I went from a casualty of a broken home to a respected and important part of High Island High School. In the five years I was there, I had more fun and a more productive life than all the other years put together. The move to High Island was the one biggest thing that transformed my life.

Moving to a different town isn’t just about the new house, it is also about making new friends at a new school, and living a different lifestyle. At first, I was hesitant about moving into a new house. I was mostly happy about not having to share a room with my younger brother anymore. Sharing a room for 6 years was long enough for me. As a little girl, I was so glad that I got to paint and decorate my room whatever way I wanted. My family went from living in a small split floor house to a big four leveled house. The new house has twice the amount of space for my family. At first our house seemed empty because we didn’t have enough furniture to fill up all the space. For awhile our new house didn’t seem like our home. It seemed more like we were on vacation in the woods. Eventually September came around, that meant a new school year was starting. Except I wasn’t going to be returning to the same school. I used to go to Diamond Path Elementary School, now I was going to John F.
