Extracts from this document...

Introduction

090180974 My Autobiography My name is Jez and am 20 years old now. I was originally from Singapore. I have lived there all my life except for this year. For I now live in the united-kingdom with a friend (Sadam) and this is my autobiography our armed forces days. Epilogue Singapore is a great place to live in, shame for its compulsory military training. Although it is handy and useful to know, it is still some what subtle the way they go about training youths alike. With this thought, I get ready for our 4 mile run which is quite a bit when considering that one is carrying 30kg of total equipment weight on their back. If I come within the last 10 to get to Point Kappa then I have to run back to base instead of getting a lift by jeep. ...read more.

We begin our run and I can feel the streams of the sun's waves upon me like a concentrated laser. There is not even a cool breeze to dry my sweat, as I wear an 'Industry Standard Rain-Top Coat'.

I catch up with the leader of the running group and am now trekking alongside one another. "Hey, I thought you were going to end up with the losers at the back," panted the leader of the group sarcastically. I glance at Sadam to give him a grin. ...read more.

Conclusion

Looking back on this now, I can see a reflection and what I have become today. That brief part of my moment in my youth-life was a turning point for me now. It has made me stronger, and immune to the everyday problems. Synapses of life to me, it all comes clear. The motto of this to me is that a person experiences hardships so that he/she can have an easier future. Having experience in the armed forces at an early age has given me both a brighter perspective and a stronger life. I see the hardships of friends around me, yet I know I go through the same. Fortunately, I am able to swiftly go through it without the slightest worry of stress. Thank you for reading my Auto-Biography. L.K P.S.
