When I made the moved to Texas, I moved with family members that I knew but I was not close with it.
As soon as we are born it seems like our lives are filled with many moments and events in our lives in which they could be considered good or bad memories for us. But our lives are definitely filled with many beautiful normative life events, in which they may be considered “normal” or very common in everyone else 's life as well, but they could have a special meaning to us even if it is considered a normative life event. On the other hand, we all will face some type of idiosyncratic life events, which are events that catch us off guard and are not expected or common to happen to many people during their lifespan. One example of a normative life event that meant a lot to me was when, I graduated from High School. When I graduated from

One of my early memories are of my mom working and going to school at the same time to take care of eleven kid son her own. We also used two have a garden and we would go there everyday to take care of the plants.

That is why one of my hobbies is gardening.

career again, and a significant life event in my life was also when I had a baby in 2014.

A life-changing event is not something to be taken lightly. Throughout our lives, we encounter many obstacles and changes, some of which bring us joy and excitement, others of which may be hard for us to handle. When I look back on my relatively short life, it may, at first, be hard for me to think of an event that has truly molded and shaped the person that I am today. I have encountered several changes, but at the time, they felt like mere speed bumps along my path. Looking back now, it is easy for me to see that these changes were not by chance, but were placed in my path to form the person that I am today.

The significant event of my life is about suicide attempt of my neighbour. It is few years old story when I and he were class mates and used to go to school together. It was the result day of 9th grade when he came across the news of his failure. I am not much sure about the details of the event as it is an old event and the panic created at that moment did not enable me to note the details. He and I had gone to school together and came across few other class mates before reaching the notice board to see the result. My neighbour was a sensitive boy. The class mates gave us the news of his failure, he was extremely shocked and in the same condition, he jumped from the 3rd floor window of the school. He died at the spot. The news of his suicide attempt was a shock for all who had made a joke of his failure. He had scored shining marks while the class mates were enjoying his sensitivity.
There have been very few events throughout my lifetime that I feel have impacted or inspired me with such noteworthiness and that I know will change my outlook on the world and affect me forever. One of those events occurred when I traveled to Portugal, my parent’s homeland. From this excursion in 2007, I learned the importance of family, most importantly the distant kind. It provided me with a totally different perspective on the world and how large and extended one’s family can really be; even across cultures and continents. I felt so fortunate learning this lesson at a young age and growing to appreciate the ideals I was brought up with as a child. The family I have in Portugal has always been there; however, their faces have aged and
There are three extremely important events that shaped my view of life during this course. Firstly, when I was in this course around my third year, we decided to document our memories in a notebook. This was a notebook we carried around everywhere, and whenever something interesting or exciting happened, we would write it down. We got this idea from a teacher who did the same when he was a student in a similar course. It was a simple spiral bound black notebook, but every time someone said something entertaining or positive, we’d pick someone to write in it, and this person would record this in the notebook. This was something only my class did, and it made us feel extremely unique and close as a class. Before this, we weren’t really united and didn’t feel as close to one another—but as soon as we began this, we were a patriotic and supportive class. This journal was a transition between us being just a couple of distant girls to very close sisters; through this journaling, I felt united with my class and could confide in them with whatever I was going through. It was always extremely exciting for me as the youngest in the class to see my elder peers write about me, or something interesting about me. Writing our experiences down and keeping a record of our memories helped us keep it fresh, and at our party at the end of the year, we read what we’d written down as a class and laugh about it. As we went on to the fourth year, we tried to continue to do so, but the teacher who
Life changing events can sometimes be difficult. In the stories “I Never Had it Made,” By Jackie Robinson Warriors Don’t Cry By Melba Patillo Beals and “The Father of Chinese Aviation.” By Rebecca Maskel. Melba Beals, Jackie Robinson, and Feng Ru all experienced life changing events that impacted their lives. If you did not know these people went through danger to break segregation.

The end of school came eventually, and I abandoned dreams of the sixth grade. Luckily, I was transferring to another elementary school, but this offered me little consolation. Only dummies have to repeat a grade.
