Blog 1: About Me

This is my first blog so please don't think that it's bad or trashy.

Anyways, I am Ryan. I was born in Dothan, Alabama on December 5, 1997 along side my twin brother, Christian. I also have to older brothers, Rob and Mike but they live in a different state. My parents took me and my twin brother to a suburb of Atlanta, GA when I was around 2 years old. When I was 8, my family moved to the Birmingham, AL area and I have lived here ever since.

During 2006-2007, my parents split up and my mom took me and my twin brother to a rural town in the county north of Birmingham. I hated it there. I hated the people we lived with, they were mean to my mom, they were mean to me and my brother, and they treated us like slaves in that house.

At age 10 I fell into a deep depression. I hated life. I wanted my parents to be back together. My parents both agreed to take me to a therapist/psychiatrist and I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. They both saw how bad that place was for me, so they got back together months later and to this day they are still together.

Middle school was a tough time for me. I was constantly bullied for getting angry to easily and for being 'ugly'. I had the 2009 Bieber hairstyle through out middle school (As did every other boy during that time).

I kept getting in trouble for fighting too much and for attacking other students who provoked me. I was sent to detention, suspended from school, and for a whole month sent to alternative school.

When I entered into high school, every thing changed. Everyone suddenly started to talk to me and not bully me. I changed my haircut and I stop wearing glasses. More people started to noticed that I was there. Even preppy cheerleaders started to talk to me normally. I wasn't popular in school but people talked to me and treated me nicely much better than they did in middle school. I would still get angry at somethings and I had only fought someone once. I felt like I was considered normal. High school was the greatest time of my life (So far)

Right now, I am a college student learning the HVAC trade. I also volunteer at a recycling place on the weekends.

Overall, that is my short story of my life. Please feel free to like and thanks for reading.
