Past Experience Narrative I was only 15 on the plane leaving my life behind in Texas on my way to Georgia. There I was thinking that this summer would be so much fun with all my new friends that I had made freshman year. All I could tell myself was that it was my fault that this was happening to me and that because of this my life would be thrown down the drain. There was nothing I could do to stop it after all that happened between me and my mother. This event would lead me to lose my scholarships, friends, family, and many good memories that I could have had if this never happened. Although I can say that because of this event I have become stronger as a person and my eyes have been opened

I had decided to join the marching band after all music was all that I had that could make me happy. On the first day of camp no one really talks to me except the new directors but I didn't really fit in at all and all they really noticed me for was the awful sunburn I got from the scorching sun. Eventually school started and over the course of band camp I made a couple friends that were in some of my classes. Life started to look like it was going to be ok from this point on beside the fact that my mom and stepdad constantly fight and have sex all around the entire house. Not only that but I am expected by instruction of my mother for that when his kids are in the house to constantly be with them and treat them as my own brother and sister. Eventually along the way I had attempted suicide via overdose because I started to become sick of what life had become and life had started to feel really cold and lonely. I still to this day remember the ill and painful feeling I had after waking up from the attempted overdose. eventually at school some friends heard about it specifically my neighbor Wrena Crooks. She told her Tara her mother all about it and they somewhat urged me to come over for dinner and to get to know me. Over time they kind of adopted me and I began dating Wrena.

I couldn't tell if I was really happy or sad. Then one day my mother came into my room and told me that she was getting a divorce and she blamed it on me. That " I was never home to help" or " never spent time with her to talk about family problems or my suicide attempt". When she told me this I had so many feelings go through my mind. All of my new life I had just made was being thrown away just like when I first moved here. I was so mad, sad, stressed, depressed, and I didn't know how to express it other than yelling at my mom which ultimately lead to me being kicked out again. Then like last time this happened it was raining outside and it would for a couple more days. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse my mother told me that she couldn't finance me anymore and that I would have to move in with my dad which meant my worst fear would happen. I would be living with my dad 1000 miles away from my new found home. Only two days later I was on a plane to go live with my dad not even getting to say goodbye to all of my friends. I was truly and utterly heartbroken and It felt like I had no control over my life or
