My Extra Extraordinary Life
Most people would not think anything of my life but, I think so far it has been extra extraordinary. I will describe brief events from my 25 short years of life that have helped mold me into the person I am today. I will talk about experiences that were bad and experiences that were wonderful. Using the materials we have learned in class I will explain how it relates to my past, present and future.
I grew up with my father in the Navy. He was a nuclear mechanic on submarines. My mother met my father when they were both 18. They got pregnant with my first sister, Heather, and me 2 years later. My father being on a submarine nine months out of the year was difficult for us growing up. Especially my mom, she had 4 girls to look after while he was gone. She later on in life turned to drinking.
I remember moving a lot. When people ask me where I grew up my response is everywhere. I have lived in South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Washington State, Idaho, Tennessee, Georgia...
