Memories of Puerto Rico

I was raised in Puerto Rico and at the age of nine, I had to leave to move to Pennsylvania.  My parents got divorced and I lost all my friends and family. But eventually, I made more friends in Pennsylvania. We were living with my stepfather’s friends and therefore we had to move somewhere else. We decided to move to New York. At first, I thought it was going to affect my life in a positive way but it did the complete opposite.  I have nothing to do with my free time, I got addicted to video games, and at first, I loved snow but now I hate it because it gets slushy.  I miss my home in Puerto Rico and I hate living in New York.
