I evacuated to Houston when I was in 8th grade and spent about two months there. I honestly thought that I would have to stay there...and I began to like the idea of it. I like moving. I like getting a new house. I like going to a new school with new people. I like the idea of people not knowing your story. Maybe thats why I travel so much. I am a nomad at heart. I was sad to leave Texas. I did not want to come home.
