Back to the West
by Harvey . Bejarano
On the 11th of February I moved back to California. I really enjoyed living in Boston; it was great because everything was so readily available within a walking/bus/ train riding distance. But I decided I wanted to live closer to my family and if I decided to move away again, it would be in a neighboring state such as Oregon. So I am back home for now and it felt quite nice surprising everyone. It’s probably important if I tell you only my sister knew of my coming. My mother, father and two other siblings had no idea. They were clueless. And that’s exactly how I wanted it to be. We all hugged and were merry and so I am glad. I’m glad that they are glad. Now I must start planning what my next steps are which so far consist of the following: enroll into college again, go exploring the desert for abandoned places, save money to visit England and finally, go skydiving or base jumping. I guess you could say these are my goals for this year although the list will start growing as the year progresses. At first glance, this picture of a laundromat may not make sense with what this paragraph is about. But if you read this far, then you will now know that this laundromat was near the house I used to live in and is a place I enjoyed going to as well. I liked waiting for my clothes to wash and dry not only because I would have clean clothes but because I could pace around and sit while thinking or playing Sudoku on my phone.
