Memories make a place come alive. A new city is strange and barren without memories to bring it to life. A room is just a room until you paint it your favorite color, fill it with the laughter of someone you love, and create irreplaceable memories there. My bedroom, a place in which I did all of those things, is not just another room to me. My bedroom is my solace. From the moment I stepped into my new room when I first moved into my current house, I felt at home. I had an intimidating city surrounding me, but a comfortable sanctuary keeping me grounded.
I was comfortable with my predictable routine that I had lived for all fifteen years of my life. I lived in the same town, had the same friends, went to the same school, and maintained the same interests all of my life. I was always curious about what life would be like outside of my hometown, but I never thought I would actually get to see it for myself one day. When I was given the opportunity to move out of my hometown of Flint, Michigan, I knew that it was an opportunity for me to re-define myself.
I believe in the ability to move on from mistakes. Mistakes are bound to be made, when dealing with issues like heartbreak and painful ACT scores. Making mistakes and using bad judgement is a part of being human, and we as people would not be the same without it. High school is the perfect, and sometimes most awful, time for making them, and I have never met a person without a story of tell of their own.
My name is Ariana. Ariana means silver in Welsh and holy one in Greek. When I was younger, I always wanted to change my name. I was never satisfied with it. Whenever I would bring it up to my parents and ask why they named me that, they told me that they just liked the name. They thought it sounded nice. But, they also said that I am lucky because if my dad had it his way, he would have named me Cassandra Alexandra because he wanted to give me the longest name possible, so I guess I would have been a lot less satisfied with that name.
The first second sections of Black Boy by Richard Wright might leave a reader feeling inspirational because Richard is listens very closely to nature and if the reader does the same they'll probably hear things in nature they never heard before. An example of this is on page 8. "There were echoes of nostalgia I heard in the crying strings of wild geese winging south against a bleak, Autumn sky. " This is cool because i never knew that if you listened that close to nature you'll hear so many new things.

Moving is when you live or you are stationed in one area or spot and then you move to another area. It can be for any reason.
