Change has always been difficult for me. Last year, out of nowhere, we found out our landlord wanted to sell our house. I’ve lived there most of my life so I knew it was going to be a big change and one for which I had to adapt.

We started looking for houses, but in Gowanda there’s not many options. It got to the point where we had to start looking out of the school district, which was heartbreaking because not only would I have to leave my house, but my school and friends too.

We still had no luck until we found this house by the school that had been abandoned for awhile. So you could only imagine the amount of work that we had to prepare for. We couldn’t live in the new house while we were basically demolishing it and remodeling it – basically down to wood walls and bare floors. The house was a construction site.

So we had to move in with my grandma, which was a struggle but we were grateful. It was hard not being able to have friends over or not be close to my friends. Also, I didn’t have privacy really, or basically just the comfort of being in my own home.

We were only supposed to be there for a few weeks, but the house we bought started turning into a nightmare, so much was going wrong with it. Our move in date kept getting set back and set back ; at this point it was going on three months. As Christmas started to approach, I was getting pretty sad because it’s my favorite holiday and we weren’t in our own home, couldn’t have a real tree, or even really hang up our own lights… because it wasn’t our house.

Things started to pick up with construction and we started to get overwhelmed with excitement. It wasn’t even days later that we got the news it was time to move in.

At this point, we were exhausted from all the long nights of work. It felt as if a huge weight had been lifted from our shoulders. However,  to this day we are still working on it one project at a time, but it’s becoming more and more like a home.

Moving was one of the biggest transitions I’ve had to endure and I’m still getting used to it.
