Howdie, Marc Ramirez!

The Wrangler: How many times have you moved? Where to?

MR: I’ve moved 3 times in my life, California to Texas, Texas to Ohio, and Ohio back to Texas

The Wrangler: Is it difficult moving that far away?

MR: Yes, it’s very difficult moving that far way, it’s a completely new state, new city, new people and it’s not easy by any means.

The Wrangler: Did you have trouble making friends? Why or why not?

MR: No, making friends wasn’t an issue. When you’re new people will want to get to know you and talk to you and when I moved back to Texas, it wasn’t hard at all to make new friends.

The Wrangler: What is the difference between Texas and the places you have moved to?

MR: The main difference between Texas and Ohio was the climate and the people. Ohio has harsh winters and cool summers, and Texas is humid almost all year long. The people Texas are much more diverse, while in Ohio I lived in a town where everyone was the same and it lacked diversity. But in Texas everyone is really different. There are people from every race and cultural where in Ohio everything’s the same.

The Wrangler: Was it hard coming back after missing so much with your friends?

MR: Coming back to Texas wasn’t really that hard, sure it had been 9 months since I had seen all my friends, but it was cool seeing now much they and everyone else had changed. It didn’t really seem like I was gone. My friends helped me out by telling me almost everything that had happened when I was gone.

It was almost like I never left.

The Wrangler: Why do you have to move so much?

MR: I only moved because of my dad’s job. His company was just moving him to get their new locations up and running. Although I shouldn’t be moving again anytime soon.

The Wrangler: Out of the places you have moved to, which is your favorite?

MR: It’s really hard to pick a favorite place from all the places I’ve lived, they all have their pros and cons. I like them all equally.

The Wrangler: Is there a difference in the schools?

MR: The size and way the schools worked was also a huge shock when I moved. In Ohio the high school was seriously about 1/4 of the size of George Ranch and the school in Ohio had shorter days. And George Ranch is,well, huge. It’s a big campus, with longer school days.

The Wrangler: Is there a difference in the people?

MR: Like I said earlier George Ranch is much more diverse and wide ranging. And at Columbia, my high school in Ohio, the people are generally the same, although Columbia did have some really nice people.

The Wrangler: Is there a difference in the food?

MR: There wasn’t really a food difference in Texas and Ohio.

The Wrangler: What was your favorite and least favorite part of moving?

MR: My favorite part of moving is going to a new place and meeting new people, and my least favorite part is leaving the people and places I’ve become so accustomed too.
