All About Me All About Me

Up until now I have lived a pretty simple and what i consider boring life. I was born in California and lived in mexico, back in california, and finally in idaho. I wanted to go to california for college until i realized is was ridiculously expensive. I consider the most interesting thing about me is that i did every big life event kind of young. Because of the way i chose to live my life i magnified my shyness. It is something i am working on. Overall my life has been dull up until this moment.
I am proud of and consider myself someone who grew up fast. A number of events contributed to this. In my education I was always the youngest of all my peers. That was because

I think that has a mixture of the way i was raised and my personality. I am the only girl in my family. When I was younger i would be more interactive with other people, but as time when on i became more introverted. In my neighborhood there was no one to hang out with and i did not have a good relationship with my brothers so i spent a lot of time alone in my room. When i started working i did have to interact with more people because i was a waitress, but i could never hold a conversation other than what 's on the menu. Throught high school i had three really good friends that i would spend the entire school time with, and some weekends, but other than that i remained alone. When I met my husband it only isolated me more. We started our relationship long distance. He lived in mexico and i lived in idaho. I would spend the majority of my free time skyping and calling him. When i started college my husband was not able to move to pocatello with me so i stayed in the turner dorm rooms. Living there i was able to meet new people and make new friends who i would see on a daily basis. When my husband moved to pocatello i became isolated again. We got a house together and he works every day till six. So most of the day i am by myself just doing what i need to …show more content…

    Accomplishments I made from my childhood to now is having my family and be able to be around supportive people, growing up I never really saw my parents because they always worked from the morning to night. I only had my grandma because she was always there she got me ready and make food. After I turned 3 years old my mom quit her job because my grandma couldn 't watch me and my brothers and sister. Being able to see my mom more often brought happiness to me because if she didn 't quit her job i wouldn 't be able to spend more time with her but not being able to see dad still made me unhappy because i never saw my dad he didn 't get to see us grow up or teach me how to ride a bike. After my mom had my brother my dad started working less…

    “Yeah, this is the house. Dad showed me a picture.” My life in New Mexico had few happy moments and to this day I still have a hard time understanding why God would allow me to have so much anxiety, anger, depression and hurt because of this move and not heal me fully. My family suffered as we fell into a chasm of distance in the first few years to come. For the first year my dad was a truck driver and my mom stayed at home, but rather than being homeschooled, my sisters and I were in public school. By the second and third year my mom worked full-time as a town clerk, my dad was a prison guard working nights and my family started to own many farm animals.…

    She would go to work, then she would go straight to the bar until around three in the morning. I practically lived on my own at a young age. Sometimes I would just walk down to my friends house late at night, and see drug deals going down. My mom spent all her money at the bar, so we never really had food in the house. My two favorite meals were either peanut butter sandwiches, and mayonnaise sandwiches.…

    Coming from a tough Mexican background has really shaped me into the person that I am today. Initially, my family, as in my parents and I, where one of the first to come to the United States and live completely independent. Due to this we had some economic issues sometimes as well as just the fact that we were alone most of the time. I always felt secluded from my cousins and other relatives. I never grew up close to any of my other family members.…

    The Last Day Sweat was gleaming off my face as I finished lifting our couch into my mother’s van. It was a familiar action, we has always been moving around. We had held many houses for rent, each for one year at a time. We never stayed anywhere for long, presumably because nobody liked renting to single mothers with five kids. We were always drifters, seeking houses for rent and never having a permanent situation.…

    This was not something I was thrilled about as it felt like I was meaningless to them, just something materialistic being passed around. Staying at my father 's never exactly felt at all like home. I enjoyed staying at my mom 's because the majority of my things were at my mom’s house. Honestly, I never saw the point, how was I supposed to feel at home somewhere if everything I owned was scattered around in all different places. Every second weekend I would pack my clothes and toothbrush and visit my dad for a few days, which sort of felt like a I staying at a hotel.…

When I first met my brothers in 2003 I was already eight years old while they were eighteen and twenty-one.

It was not hard to get accustomed to them living with me, I was still young and was excited to now have older brothers I could play with. However, my parents had a tenant living in a spare room we had who helped pay for the rent.…

    I checked fast food restaurants but all required you to be at least 16. I finally decided to ask my mom for help, which quickly landed me a job as a dishwasher where she worked. Although I had gotten what I wanted, my decision only caused me more frustration, anger, and tiredness, with the only positive being money (which is a very good positive). These were only two of the most important decisions in my life, but there are many more smaller ones that can make just as big impact. One that I have to make almost every day is when and if I start my assignments.…
