I sit here bored out of my mind, and end up going through some of my old assignments. You expect nothing out of it, and then you find something interesting.

Natalie Goldburg claims that writing is similar to running, but no, it actually isn’t. If it is, I never done either of these tasks. For me to never of wrote, would make this paper non-existent, and I run here and there to get out consolidated energy and thoughts out.

Home, a place that has never come easy for me, or has been easy to describe, even now. I never had a place that I felt was stable. When I was younger, I was more worried about what tomorrow would foresee than the worries that a normal kid would carry upon themselves. Money has always created stress in the family, and it was like we never had enough. When we were living in apartments, it was questionable some days if we would come home to an eviction note on the door, and a few times we did. I was one of the what you might say lucky ones in this case. We always had people to go to, relatives, and my mom's friends. Even when we weren’t considered homeless, the fear of becoming it was always there.
