Extracts from this document...


I would have never thought that saying goodbye to the most difficult person in my life would be that hard. I was being shipped off to boarding school miles away from the place I called home and I hated the thought of it. I was 13 years old and used to living under the rules of my mother, whom, at the time was so devastated that I was leaving, but not half as devastated as I was because I was being packed away. At the airport when I saw the tears roll down my mum's cheeks I realized that this woman didn't really hate me. The thought of my mum crying always made me cry no matter the circumstance. So letting my tough side melts for a few minutes I cried too. I had never been away from my mum for more than two weeks and that period of time was like a nightmare that I couldn't wake up from. Looking at her in this state of pain made so many thoughts rush through my mind. ...read more.


There were so many faces that would soon become very familiar. The line to get through immigration was so long I thought I would never get through.

I was looking out the window trying to absorb every inch of my new surroundings, but it was too dark to have a clear view of the city. Apart from the occasional screeching of tires the drive on the tar road it was silent and I didn't know what to expect from my new school. I was finally able to admit to myself that I was nervous.

The school building itself was the biggest building meant for teaching that I had ever seen? ...read more.


It took me one year to get over myself. In grade 9 I finally stopped crying and I didn't care about anyone! I became a 'tomboy' and had no girl friends. I used to hang out with the boys and get in every other week. Everyone said I had an attitude then, and it wasn't a good one. They thought I was mean and rude, and I agree. I became a wild child at that point and no one could control me. It was like I was possessed by some supernatural power. I had finally realized that I had no parent on my back and I could do anything I desired. When I think about it now those are the days that shaped the person that I am. I now know what I don't want to become in life because of the person I was before. I don't think I can be blamed for my actions at 14 years of age because if I had a parent figure around I would not have done a lot of the things I did that I now choose to forget.
