The changes of my Life




God is so good to us. After almost 6 years of struggle my mom eventually met a man to be our father. We were always longing before to have a father image that will love us, accept us and give us a better life. We were so blessed because on February 7, 2007 we moved here in the USA to marry the fiancĂ© of my mom. Fortunately, we are so blessed because our step dad is worth more than anything else. He treated us like his own children. He is very loving, caring, understanding and can sense our needs easily. Sometimes he is better than our mom because she is a disciplinarian type. I feel like she is choking my neck. As a teenager I’d like to do and explore many things but my mom won’t like that. I can’t understand her sometimes but I know she is doing what’s best for us. Though she is strict sometimes but I always love her because she's my hero. She is a great mom for me and my brothers.


This is my happy family and for that my life is complete. We enjoyed together by going to church, shopping, swimming to the beach or pool, walking around to enjoy the beauty of nature and visit other places. I got to study in a prestigious school and I know I have a good future.

My life changes very much aside from having a happy family and a very good father. Considering the language, foods and the climate wasn’t as easy as eating peanuts before I have adjusted. It was really hard to communicate with other people especially when I went to school. During my first 3 months in school, believe me or not I don’t really talk. I was really afraid if they will laugh of my English or they can’t understand my accent. I had mixed emotions but later on I started talking when I met new friends. They are all Americans but they are so nice and can understand me as well.

I was so funny about the foods before because it tastes too gross for me. I really like the Philippine dishes but now it doesn’t taste gross for me anymore. I almost like all their foods except the vegetables with dressings. I can’t still dare to eat the raw veggies. It is still gross for me but I am trying my best to practice eating so that my dad will be happy for me. He is sad if I don’t eat all their foods but sometimes he buys Asian foods for us.

I hate winter and fall because those are too cold for me and so we can't go for swimmin to the beach or the pool. "Beach or pool" are freakin amazin for me. mmmm really love it!!! Anyways, I have no choice because it is God’s will and I need to learn and accept it. I told myself many times, this is my life here..This is America! This is it!!!! This is really is it!!!...Tira tira Justine..tira tira Justine !!!!
