It was one of the best days of my life and soon one of the saddest days. When I was 5 years old I got one of the best gifts any kid good ask for. I’ve always wanted one and was so glad when I laid eyes on her. Before I go into detail why not just start from the very beginning. One evening, my little brother and I was watching tv with my mama when I heard my mama talking to my dad on the phone saying “what you mean you have a surprise?” When I heard that, I knew that It had to be something really intriguing. Minutes later I could hear the sound of the tires running over rocks and an engine running. It turns out that It was my daddy pulling into the driveway, so I had gotten even more anxious to find out exactly what the surprise was. My mama, brother, and I all waited in the living room, ready to find out exactly what my daddy was surprising us with. He finally walked in but in his hand was a box with holes in the top.
One quiet morning I was sitting on my couch playing games when my I heard my dad jingling his key. So I decided to get up and see what or where he was going.
In 2011 on a very cold December night, my dad told me something that I will never forget. My siblings and I were all sitting in my fathers very out dated apartment, eating hamburger helper and watching a movie on his small 32 inch t.v.
The parents were fed up with our wild animal like behavior and told us to play downstairs in the basement. We all went down the basement and started to playing tag. Therefore, we had to be careful playing because the basement was not finished at the time and had metal studs where the walls are supposed to go and the concrete floors that are now hardwood. When everybody went upstairs because they were as tired as an olympic runner after a meet my Dad came down to fix a light bulb. He used a ladder to fix it so he could reach and when he was done he went upstairs so I was the only one in the basement. I wanted to be like my Dad so I decided to climb the ladder. I was at the top when my foot slipped off the ladder. Somehow I was able to turn my body around and grab onto a pipe to stop myself from falling. I felt the pipe starting to brake so I decided to swing on to the metal stud next to me because I was sure that was going to hold me. When my
When we moved to VA When I was about four years old my dad was still working in the military. Then one late afternoon my dad calls a family meeting in the dining room then BOOM he tells us that he got a new job offer and that we’re moving virginia. I didn't really know what that meant cause I was 4 but my sister was devastated Because she had tons of friends at school and at home and she liked it. So we packed our bags and set out to virginia.
When I was about 11 years old it was close to Christmas time, I was at Soccer practice and my dad was there watching me play. My mom stopped by and I was wondering why, because usually both my parents don't show up to my practice. I figured there was some sort of PREDICAMENT. I finish my practice and I'm packing my stuff up and my mom goes to her car and looks like she's about to cry. Me being curious as I am was bugging my dad
Brake Check I was seven years old and it was in the middle of the summer and I almost got run over by a car. The day was going really good just like any other summer day; I got up, got dressed, ate breakfast, and went outside to play. For breakfast
I never should have started it, but I had no idea I would cause so much trouble. I also had no idea that I would get a senior pilot’s license at the age of thirteen, breaking the record for youngest person to get a senior pilot’s license. The only thing I regret is spray painting the “F” word on the side of a y-wing. That is what got my license revoked. After my license was revoked, I dropped out of the academy and began my adventurous life of crime. I stole an abandoned A-wing from the barracks that I might’ve blown the door off of… Maybe. I don’t really care anyways. While I’m frantically flying away from Corellia, I’ll introduce myself. Hi, I’m Han Solo, orphaned at the age of nine when my parents crashed their starship into this stupid planet coming back from a run.
One beautiful ,sunny spring day when there was nothing to do inside, my brother and I went outside. When we went outside, my little brother asked me if i would teach him to drive a four wheeler. Well at first I denied it, but my mom said to go and at least set on the four wheeler with him. I did and my brother asked if we could start the four wheeler, I said to
At a young age, I moved from the country I was born in (Dominican Republic) to Miami Florida. Moving is not an easy thing to do, I had to leave all of my friends and family behind and become familiarized with uncertain place. I was surrounded by the unknown, everything was strange and so different to what I was usually use to. At the time I could not speak any English at all but that eventually did not matter to me, I slowly started adapting to my new environment and I became more positive. Although I could not communicate well and had a few obstacles I was very organized with my studies and kept very decent grades.
My Outsider Experience My whole life I’ve felt like an outsider. When I was younger dealing with a learning disability, I have had a hard time making and keeping friends even to this day. I struggle with being a follower instead of a leader. My own adoptive father verbally abused me
It was 5 am. My grandpa and I woke everyone up so we can get ready so we can go out and get set.We all got dressed we grabed our gun and seat then we started to walk to the stands. We walked for about 30 minutes to get to
My Signature Themes are achiever, arranger, responsibility, input, and significance. Each of these are very significant in defining my strengths and showing me how to best use my strengths in my future. My first strength was achiever and this is representing me as a whole, and is what I use in everyday life. I am a driven person who wants to accomplish many things and I visualize my life as a mountain that I will overcome every day and at the end of every day I will have a beautiful view of what I have accomplished. I use every day in events such as: relentless volunteering, working long hours and everything is done with an impeccable sense of satisfaction after completion. My second and third strengths are arranger and responsibility. These
It’s the start of grand final day. I wake up extremely nervous about it because of what happened last year. So last year we were in the grand final playing the same team (the dogs) and on the same ground. i was going for a mark, running as hard as i could to get go for it, but unfortunately, a player from the dogs comes in head first and headbutts my chest and breaks 3 of my ribs and we lose by less than a goal.
During the Christmas holiday season when I was 14, I woke up early on a beautiful Monday morning trying to find my dad. My dad had a small business at the market place, and I wanted to go to work with him that morning. I was in need of extra money for Christmas gifts. I was full of energy, enthusiasm, confidence and a heart full of love and trust. When I finally found my dad who was outside loading the car with the merchandise, I asked “Dad can I go to work with you today? I want to help you, so I can make some extra money for gifts.” There was a long pause before he said “Are you sure you can handle it, remember it is Christmas time and people come from all over the place to shop, and we will be very busy.” I quickly replied “Of course, I am good with math, and how hard it could be to sell the famous chine melamine dishes? After all they sell own its own.” Well my father continues “Let’s take your sister to help you too.”
