We moved yet again to a suburb in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania when my Dad got a job with a company that was once called Amp. It was there that I was blessed for the third time with my youngest sibling, Alex, my only brother. I lived most of my childhood there, attending two elementary schools in economic dispair and a junior high where I learned quickly that a small, white girl should stay humble and quiet.
I moved to a rural area around Hershey, Pennsylvania for my high school years and I really enjoy it here. High school in this area is a lot different than a rougher school, and it always seems to irk me with the trivial arguments that occur about the most trivial things such as lunch chairs and gossip. A small high school boosted my confidence and let me explore more in my hobbies in writing.
Many say a senior year is supposed to be the most enjoyable of education, but I felt the exact opposite. It was this year that I was diagnosed with clinical depression and suffered many traumatic events such as the most frightening 72 hours of my life, when my sister tried to kill herself. I can never tell her how responsible I still feel and how much I could just wish I could turn back time and show her I loved her...so she would know how much I would miss her if she ever left me.
My life now may be tough, but it will settle, just like everything always does. So I invite you to relax, read a couple entries and comment if you feel inclined. This is my gift to all who wish to read, and hopefully this outlet gives me the peace of mind I so desperately want. But I ask of all avid readers, to throw out any judgements you have before you read. It is important to me that I write with no fear of readers commently negatively. I have faith that everything will be fine, however. Remember, I am trusting you all with my thoughts that I hold dear to me. Enjoy the journal all!
