My life has been turmoil ever since I can remember. To start with, I grew up without knowing who my father was. My family and I had many hardships and these hardships led me to a reckless lifestyle. I dropped out of school at the age of fourteen and I was in the eighth grade. Not knowing which direction to go, I took the easy way out (so it seemed to me). I ran away from home and entered the life of a child out in the streets. At sixteen, I got married for the first time. The result of that marriage was divorce. Again, I was bewildered and sought what I thought was a solution to my problems. I started taking drugs, drinking heavily, and did anything I could think of to obtain money. I re-married, only to find out that my husband with abusive so I left him as well and re-married. At this point in my life, I feel more at ease. I obtained my GED and started going be school. I am pursuing my LPN. This is my third semester in school. I am also happily married but I am not able to bear children because of my drug in-take and those things that I did for money. My next step in life will be to finish my LPN and work as an LPN.
