Hello world!!

Hello world!! Welcome to my head, where anything can happen. This first post will be my life up until now.

So let's see, it all started out in my moms tummy. It was very lonely in there but safe and cozy, but then I joined the world, and I was not very excited about that. It was bright and loud and oh so confusing. I just wanted to crawl back into that warm cozy safe little life that I was used to, until I realized someone was holding me. So slowly, oh so slowly, I stopped crying and opened my eyes into the beautiful smiling face of my mother. And I knew right then that I would enjoy this world as long as I could share it with my mother.

Fast forward a few years and I have learned to talk, walk and read(which was my favorite), but the most important thing was that I shared it with my mom. I hadn't gone to preschool yet and I was starting to get restless. And finally that day came, but I realized(when I got there), that this was new too, and my mom couldn't stay. I was devastated. If my mom couldn't stay then I couldn't stay but my kind and patient mother explained to me that before I knew it she would be back and I wouldn't want to leave. So I put on a brave face and walked into this new chapter of my life.

I ended up loving preschool and, as my wise mom predicted, didn't want to go home. But my mom always happy and kind gently told me to, "GET OUT OF THAT SCHOOL AND GET YOUR BUTT IN THE CAR!!" Just kidding she just told me it was time to go and I could come back again tomorrow. And ever since that first day of preschool I have always loved school and learning.

Now, again, skip ahead a few years, and imagine rivers of tears and broken friendships leaving a trail from Orlando, Florida to Austin, Texas. This is what the two day move to Texas looked like for our family. It was long, and sad, and tearful, and gross(car sickness), and every other boring, horrible thing you could imagine all packed into two days of driving. But finally we were there and a big empty unused house sat there in front of us. I ran in screaming, "WE'RE HERE, WE'RE HERE!!!" and that is how I ended up here in Texas.

And since then I have made plenty of friends and have come to love this dry, desert of a place called Texas.
