Moving is hard for everyone. No matter who you are, how old you are, where you come from or where you are moving to. However, it seems like a big move impacts the kids the most because they don’t want to leave their school, friends, or family. Especially when you’re in higher grade levels, like in high school, when you have already built a life for yourself.

I only have until the week of Thanksgiving break before I have to leave everything I know and love behind and move to a new town. Into a new school, with all new people where the only ones I know are my mom and her boyfriend’s family. However, no one in his family is in school still. His daughters graduated from college last year.

I know that it is going to be hard for me. I’ll have to start all over; I will not know my way around; I’ll have to make new friends. It is not all bad because I get the chance to branch out more.

When you move, no one knows you, and that can be the best- and the worst thing about a move at the same time. It can be the best thing if you want to work on yourself, but it could also be the worst if you are forced to start over and build another life for yourself.
