DescriptionThe pains of moving
Have you ever been told by a parent that you had to move halfway across the country? Did it scare you more than any other circumstance in your life? I was trapped by such a move, and back then I thought I'd never escape. I didn't want to start over.
That day began just like any other school day in Las Vegas. The incessant ringing of my alarm clock shattered the silence of sleep like a rock through glass. My bare feet hit the cold tile, and I winced. A quick breakfast that could hardly be called a meal was followed by a scramble looking for papers. A glance at the clock produced panic, and I began cramming homework into my bag like it was an Olympic sport. Throwing on shoes, I raced out the door.

The only feeling I knew was terror; new city meant new friends and surroundings. I was also very angry with my parents at that time. It was my dad's job that was dragging us away from Las Vegas and to Michigan, and there was nothing I could do about it. It seemed like it wasn't the way things were supposed to happen.
When I mentioned it to my friends, they were all shocked. My friend Luke told me, “You guys have been here forever, you can't leave." I had no idea what to say to them. "I know I told some of you I'd always be here for you guys, but I gotta go now" ...
