College Admissions Essay: The Turning Point -- College Admissions Essa
The Turning Point   Probably the most important twist point in my life happened in 1992.  At this eon, I was eighter years old and living in Williamsport Pennsylvania.  My dad had a well-paying craft at Anchor Darling Valve Company, I was attending a insular school and I thought life was just great.  At the time we feeld in a large four-story house with a separate three-story service department and an acre of forest for a backyard.  I had a ten-speed bicycle and I would a good deal go bicycling with my friends at the nearby cemetery.  No- one ever objected to this, in circumstance people would often get picnics at the top of this hill at the cemetery.  I guess the only things I ever complained about were the constant unison lessons and practice sessions my parents subjected me to.   Life was great until my dad came home one day with bad news.  As it turned out, his well-paying company was downsizing and they had to let him go.  Well, I didnt think much of it at the time.  So hed get a new job, I thought.  Well anyway, he took out his resume and started notice away.  Oh well, life goes on.  Well soon enough companies began to take interest in him and he decided to join a company called Cellular cardinal (which would later be bought by ATT and become ATT Wireless Services).  So what was the date?  Well, Cellular Ones offices are based in Pittsburgh which is not exactly an late commute from Williamsport. Carlos, we will have to move, but it wont happen for a while.  Well render sure you finish the school year and besides, I allay have to look for a job in Pittsburgh too, my mom told me.  Somehow, although I knew my parents had some(prenominal) friends in Williamsport,... ...ttsburgh than I would have ever been able to in Williamsport.  I learned how to ski and rock climb, things I became good at and still do today.  I also suddenly had a deep cargo deck for music.&nb sp This was something I had never had, now all of a sudden, I genuinely practiced when I was supposed to (this probably had something to do with the new music teachers).  I also took up karate again and eventually earned my discolour belt.  I realized that Williamsport was actually a dull place to live in and the only things I really missed were my friends and the house.  Before I knew it, we had lived in Pittsburgh for six years and although it may not be the top hat place to live in, it has opened up a whole conception of opportunities to me.  That was something I may never have gotten if I had stayed in Williamsport or if I had continued to move around.
