Hurdles

Our relationship. It wasn't sonnet inspiring, the story of it won't make thousands want to listen. But it was complicated and it was special to us. It was certainly more than I bargained for from just seeing a boy with a football helmet across the room.

I find it weird how parents can just make decisions for you. Like, you don't really get much of a say, they just decide to move you half way across the world and expect you to deal with it. Not that I'm overly upset about moving to America though. I'm actually quite excited more than anything. My mum got a promotion in her job that gave her the opportunity to go over there to work for two years and then her contract might be renewed. We thought it would be a good time because I just left school here in England so I'm not tied to much right now educationally, even though now I'll be thrown into the last two years of high school. It's not like joining maybe the second year. Now everybody's already made all the friends they're going to have for the rest of their lives. 

That's why I'm sad to leave here. The one thing really tying me here is my group of friends, Kylie, Nicole and Jaclyn but so far I haven't let myself think too much what it will be like without them and I think they're doing the same. We have a very casual goodbye but I think that's just because none of us have fully realised what this is going to be like. 

We're moving to Austin. My parents are excited about that because apparently we're moving right down the street from a couple they were friends with a long time ago, before I was born. They're called Brie and Daniel originally from Austin, moved to Bristol for a few years and then back to Austin. They've always emailed back and forth but both my parents are excited to live so close to them again. 

I'm excited too. I've never really been one for things staying the same.
