I was in one of the very few parts of New York where there wasn’t a direct subway connection in our neighborhood, so at times you could feel like you were a world away from Midtown or any other part of Manhattan when you wanted to go into the city. That was both a good and bad thing, it was good because no one who wasn’t from here really wouldn’t come by around here, everyone you saw you most likely saw before or knew. It was bad however because it was inconvenient to get to other parts of the city, you would need to walk twenty min just to get to the D train. These were all things that I was used to and was really life as I knew it, and I’d feel like I’d miss it once we moved, as at the time, I really did not like the idea and wanted to stay, as I loved everything about my life there.

...ving with my family, it was just me. Also most of my friends now at this time are in Philly so it wasn 't really a easy decision at first, but the main reason I came back was for the city itself, as I missed it and always was thinking of wanting to be back. However, moving this time felt good, as I 've always felt like and considered it home here. It is a bit different this time, as I 'm in a different area then where I 'm from, and I 'm actually working, going to school and living here on my own, but I still love being here no matter what.
Overall, I’ve traveled many times for many different reasons to and from New York, but I feel like this one time was the most significant. It had a major impact on my life and was a great experience for me, and in the end, I’m grateful that my parents took the decision to move as it opened me up to new people and a new experience.

- “Never let anyone make you believe you aren’t worthy of your dreams. You are worthy, very worthy and you will keep thriving to reach those dreams no matter what happens.” These words of advice from my maternal grandmother filtered through my mind as I watched her lay in a casket, three days after having a heart attack. The realization I felt seeing her lifeless, my beautiful, fun-loving, blunt grandmother now lifeless, crushed me emotionally. She was the one I ran to when bad things happened. She gave me amazing advice and at that moment I couldn’t get advice on how to cope from the only person I wanted it from.... [tags: Life, Family, Audience, Grandparent]

- Writing From Life - Original Writing I couldn’t even look her in the eye. Not after what I’d done. What she’d done. Being part of a big family was difficult, but you always had someone to talk to, but not this time. I was generally closest to Rabia. She was two years younger than me, and to her, everything was simple and had a simple answer. I think that’s why we were so close. She was always great if you had a problem, or needed help. She was also fun to be with, making up games that people would normally call childish, but because she made them up, they were ‘cool’.... [tags: Papers]

- Life's Hurdles - Original Writing The dim clouds hang in the sodden sky like filthy cotton wool. The wind is biting, and chills me to my core. I wipe what remains of the sandman's apparatus from my eye and quake in the cold. My riding boots are sucked down into the mud. I'm sinking. With considerable force I pull my footwear out, making a strident slurping noise as I do so. My jodhpurs cling as the rain saturates my clothing. I feel naked. I survey the scene. Obnoxious brats with riding crops and spurs before me; ponies lustrous from hours of grooming nudging their adolescent owner's pockets for sugar lumps and mint imperials.... [tags: Papers]
