Growing up my mother had always worked incessantly to make ends meet considering the fact that she was single and had nobody else to depend on The constant empty seat at ballet recitals sporting events even graduations allowed me to transform from a child to a young woman In the eighth grade I remember coming home to very large brown boxes with half of my home already packed in them She explicitly told me I received a job offer in New York begin packing your things we have to go Just like that plain and simple I wasnt left with any options and began packing The first six months in New York were very cold and gloomy my nostalgia grew rampant and I constantly hid in my closet to cry to prevent my mother from hearing me If I didnt learn to conceal it my mother would chastise me Beginning ninth grade in an entirely new and small school didnt help my situation either The kids alienated me because I was new and came from a different environment which made it difficult for me to get accepted After the first year there was a change in the relationship between me and my mom and we became closer more reliant on one another even friends However the closeness came with a price I noticed an increase in alcohol bottles in the kitchen trash can and gradually all around the house I tried very hard not to notice and even create excuses for my mom because I didnt want to accept the only person I relied was slowly spiraling down alcoholism Everything worsened by the tenth grade Every time my mom would come home the scent of alcohol reeked through her pores and I was never certain if she was sober when driving which deeply rose my questioning if she was alive or dead
