Narrative Essay

Looking back on my childhood there were many heartaches that I wanted to end and many moments that I wish could never end. But the moment that I mostly remember is the when it was time for me to graduate from high school and enter my first year here at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. Most people are nervous about graduating from high school due to the fact that they do not want to leave home from mom and dad. For me I had a totally different ego about leaving. I, for one, was ready to go. See; where I’m from there is not a lot of things to do. I would literally have to drive at least an hour to get to anything that seemed like a change of scenery.

I was finally at a point where I would be able to branch out and meet different people all the time, other than when I traveled to different places. The day I graduated all I could think about was going off to college and leave boring old Forrest City behind me.
As I began my first day at the university, I was extremely nervous. I was afraid of getting lost and not being able to find my way around the city and the campus. When I finally got settled into my dorm, it finally hit me that I was somewhat on my own. I did not have mom there to tell me what to do and how to do it, or where to go and where not to go. I was here to venture on my own and explore. My first week at school I called my mom every night. At first, I wanted to return home and be with her, but the thought of home equals being bored again...
