My most memorable experience is when I moved from California to Alabama. It was like night and day. I was 17 at the time and I can't admit exactly why I had to. That'll be another story in itself, I guess. It was something that obviously impacted my life in such a way that I would never be the same again. Growing up as a teenager from the busy, face paced California and being placed in a slower, more relaxed Alabama will forever be a major turning point in my life. It got me away from a lot of trouble I was in and opened up a whole new world, a whole new life, and a new beginning. I'll admit that at first I resented it, but looking back on its impact on me I believe it worked out for the best.
