Moving To Texas

Moving to Texas
By Nancy

Have you ever moved? I did. I moved from California to Texas and it was the worst thing ever to happen to me. Why was it so terrible? I’ll start from the beginning.

To start off with I used to live in Thousand Oaks California. One day at school my friend, Madison and I were sitting in the sandbox, under the play structure to avoid the 500 degree heat. “It’s so sad that you have to move.” Madison said. She had long brown hair. I said, “Yeah.”. I was moving to Texas during the summer and the school year was almost over! Time was moving 1,000 lightyears an hour.

It got closer and closer to the time when I would move and even though it was several months away it felt like only a couple days. I spent as much time with my friends as possible before I moved and never saw them again. Soon it was time to move. During the flight my heart was made of lead. I looked out of the window next to my seat. The world below me was so tiny the cars looked like nothing more than little ants. The buildings were the size of dollhouses. I felt like I could see the whole world from the plane. That only served to make me feel worse because I knew it meant I was getting farther and farther away from home.

Despite how upset I was, Texas turned out to be great. When I got there my family soon moved into our new house. It was a nice house. I started school there. My new elementary school was great! When I was there I felt like I was floating on clouds. The kids there were really nice. I noticed they were aware of everyone around them and not just people they considered “normal.” I made new friends there. After all I ended up liking it in Texas. I kept in touch with Madison. We text and Facetime all the time.

In conclusion, it wasn’t until I thought I would never see my friends again that I realised I had taken time with them for granted. This was a mistake I will never make again. Anything could come up. I might have to move and lose touch with them. From now on I will enjoy every moment I spend with my friends because I am very lucky to have them.
