My Life Story – Chapter 4 – Part 1
When we moved back to Chicago my Aunt and Uncle had gotten a 1 bedroom apartment that was like 600 Sq Foot.
I used to sleep in a sleeping bag that whole first summer I got there. We were too poor, there was no room for a bed for me.
Soon after, when we fully realized that wasn’t enough room to function normally. I started living at my Grandma’s house where I lived on and off for years .
This is my Grandma’s tiny little house that I spent my teenage years in and also months at a time during tough life transitions after 18 on. It was always my back up place to go. I grew up in the unfinished basement.
*I was also hard core pigeon toed, I used to stand for hours with my feet inwards and play video games.
My aunt was going to have my legs broke and then reset so they would be straight but we couldn’t afford it.
So she kept scaring me telling me they would have to break my legs if I didn’t start learning to walk straight lol.
This is me in 7th Grade I think. You can kind tell I’m pigeon toed in this picture. I also wear size 12 1/2 shoes so I think back then I probably had big sized feet too which didn’t help me any.
After I got made fun of enough by other kids over time, I started to mentally focus and think about how I walked.
After a couple years I was able to pull off the notion that I walk straight to not get made fun of for it.
Now a days I walk with a demeanor that I had to practice for years to walk straight with out consciously thinking about it. But if you ever see me walk slow or even run, you can tell I am pigeon toed. 🙂
I still laugh every time I hear my Head Band remix when I say “I’m goin in like I’m pigeon toed” because I am hahaha. Link To Head Band Remix
Anyways, school started and I didn’t know I wasn’t going to be in a normal schools behavior program. Instead I was suddenly put into an extreme behavior school and the fun began.
