Getting to know me ...
My name is Ariel and I am currently nineteen years old, only for 45 more days! =] Ok I am going to try to explain my very complicated family situation so here it goes...My dad(Charlie) and my mom(Kellie) had me and then they split up when I was only a few months old, so I really never got to see my parents together. Then my dad remarried to Wendy(my stepmom) and they had three kids together. First was Megan...Next was Charles...And Last was Brooke.After being together for about ten years, my dad and Wendy also seperated. So yes, I have been through two divorces in my childhood. Although Wendy is no longer technically my "stepmom" I still treat her as if she were. She raised me just as much, if not more, as my parents. We are still very close. She is now married to Jeff,who has recently been in a horrible dirt bike accident and paralyzed. He is currently in a rehab center in Atlanta,Georgia. Ok-now to start with my mom's side of the family. My mom also remarried to Steve (my stepdad) and they are still together. They had two kids together.First was Carrie and then Sarah. I did live with my mom for the longest time but then in the fourth grade i decided to go live with my dad for awhile.Finally my mom moved so both of my parents were in the same school district,which was a dream come true for me! Then I could go back and forth every other week-I was happy because I got to be with both of my parents and they were happy becasue they got to see me more. My junior year of high school I moved out of my dads house for good! It was just to hard living there. I basically had to be a "mom" when I lived there but only had the priveledges of a 5th grader. While trying to deal with high school (which is hard enough at that age) I was also having to go home and take care of my three younger siblings,make dinner,and clean the house. Not to mention having to put up with some of the ridiculous things my dad did, like making me go to bed at the same time as my eight year old sister and many other things. He also had a very bad temper and I have a very tender heart so it was very hard when my dad took out all of his frustration on everything out on me. So finally i could not take it anymore and one day i just left and went to permenantly live with my mom. That was a very hard decision for me. Hurting my dad like that and not knowing if i would be able to see my sisters and brother. But it was better for me in the long run. I graduated high school in 2007 and that fall i took a dental assistant class and later found out that was not for me. I currently work at a daycare and have been there for two and a half years. I have worked with all different age groups,ranging from infants-four year olds. Even though my job can sometimes be very stressful, I love my job. I get along and like all my co-workers and I love the kids. ......... My boyfriend (Hunter) and I have been together for a little over a year and a half. We met through his sister Heather,whom is my very good friend that I met through working at the daycare. I am so happy with my relationship with him, We are very mature for our age and we just get along so well. We plan on getting married in the future but not until he is done with college. ....... Another very big part of my life is God. I got saved and baptized with my mom when I was thirteen years old at Christian Fellowship Baptist Church. It was the best church I have ever been at, we were all like family. I was very involved in my youth group,and my youth pastor had a big impact on my life. But sadly, he had to leave the church, and our church split. After the split, the church changed alot and we quit attending there. I have yet to find another church that has been as great as CFBC once was. I currently am going to a brethren church with hunter and his family,but it is very difficult for me. I was raised in a Baptist church and now going to this brethren church and learning all their diff beliefs is sometimes very hard and confusing for me. But i am doing the best I can, and thats all I can do. ...... I still live at home with my mom,which is nice i guess, for the most part and for now. ....... As far as my personality goes, I am very shy when i dont know someone, but after I get to know them I will open up. I am very tender-hearted, when someone yells at me or even says something mean/hurtful to me (even if they say it nicely) I get very upset. And i am a redhead,so sometimes i can have a temper LOL. I try my best to be my best at all times, I absolutely HATE dissapointing people. ...... Well thats all I can think of for the moment but i'll update if i remember anything else that needs to be added. =]
