Growing Up Like 0 Twitter Mashawn Mickels Follow Oct. 5, 2016, 6 a.m. in Life and Styles Views: 652 Like us on facebook Growing up...... Growing up for me was really interesting. Like millions of other kids I grew up as a military kid. Yep, I took it for granted. Still it was awesome. Traveling from place to place, meeting new people, making new friends. It was great. Of course, if I knew then what I know now, I probably would have savored a lot more of it. In my travels I've been to some awesome places. Seen some great things. Had some life changing moments as well. I went to so many schools. One school year I actually went to 3 different schools, 2 state side (different states) and one in Germany. High school was just as diverse. Three schools in four years. My sisters didn't care for the moving as much, but me, I loved it I always looked forward to that next move. Not all of it was great times of course. My dad being army was gone a lot. He was also in Desert Storm. So, some challenging moments of course. But guess what? The good outweighed the bad in my eyes. Adults may have thought otherwise. I finished my teenage years in a singular location. Nope, didn't hate it. Actually the complete opposite. Enjoyed it a lot. Got the chance to really experience being in a place for more than three years. That didn't happen until I was about to exit high school and enter college. I have to say thanks to my dad for that life and my mom for ensuring we stayed grounded. I must say I loved my growing up years. Roller coasters and all.
