changes - Happiness

July 14, 2008
When I close my eyes, and listen to the crispy leaves fall and feel the wind whip my hair all around my face, I am truly happy.

When my parents ask me about school, want to know every detail about every aspect of my academic life, I am unhappy.

When my brother, officially a senior in high school now, forgets to come home after he sneaks out at night, I am unhappy.

When we moved for the first time in my life, to a city so completely unlike anything I had ever known, away from my crispy leaves, calming wind and silence, I am scared.
