8 Years Old and Independent At the age 17 I am more independent than ever and it bothers my mom like crazy. This year I bought all my school clothes and school supplies with my own money. She despises that I don’t rely on her but I feel like she should be relieved because she should know I won’t have to depend on her as I get older. Since I was 8 years old, I learned to take care of myself. My mom always had to work two jobs to raise my brother, my sister and me. I have never been the “average” kid. My sister moved out when she was 17 so she was never there to help me and my brother was too self-centered. I taught myself how to make ramen noodles and mac & cheese for dinner ‘cause no one was there to help me make anything for me. I have learned to never depend on anyone because at the end of the day you only have yourself. I hated depending on my mom to give me money if I wanted to go do something so I was employed at 15. The Diary Queen I worked at was individually owned and the owner taught me more than I could have ever wished for. At the age of 16, less than a month after my birthday I personally bought my own car with my own money. I pay for my own car insurance, my phone bill and I pay for the gas in my car. Only thing I depend on my mom for is a place to live and groceries. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so independent because I feel like I have missed out on being a kid but I know I will turn out better than the kids who parents have bought everything for

We moved and the school I was in didn’t have a band. My parents gave us different assignments to do after homework. We had quizzes, book reports, and different educational activities. At the time all I want to do was watch television. Not knowing or even care that this would help me in the future. It made me wants to learn more and research things for myself. It also brought out some competitiveness I had hidden deep down inside. I wanted to do better than my siblings.…
