In the article "Directions to Where I Live," Kaila M. and I can relate to a few things. I can relate to Kaila when she talked about being mad at her parents and then being moody about her grandparents death. When one of my cousins was shot by my other cousin, I was so devastated that I cried myself to sleep. Every time I look at his picture, my heart feels like it wants to punch its way out of my heart. I definitely understand how she felt about having her first boyfriend. "Get a boyfriend. Get a couple. Break up. Cry." Thank you, Kaila for letting me know that I am not the only person who feels this way about life and the situations teenagers go through.
