Autobiography - What life means to me?

Extracts from this document...


""I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry." About myself I was born on 28th of April 1991. I started my education from a nearby primary school called Ladybird. I was living with my parents, three brothers and my sister. At the age of 5 I was in class 1 in Toronto School of Academic Excellence. In 1996 I had an outstanding vacation to Canada for 2 months. We liked it so much that we visited to Canada again in 1998 and 2000. What life means to me? "In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away". "When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile". Unforgettable Moments Some memories are unforgettable. I have two moments to share. One of them is a happy moment whilst the other one is sad. However I will share the sad one first so I can end my autobiography with a happy ending. ...read more.


My brother got told off, as he ought to have taken care of me. But still my dad calmed down after looking at me. I felt sorry for my brother and I knew it was entirely my fault. I learned a lesson in this incident that "never cross the road without someone older than you or if you are mature enough then you should look around before crossing the road. Well that was the bad part. Now it's time for the good part. I don't really remember when this happened as it is a bit of a blur in my memory but still I managed to remember the gist of it. It was before my ninth birthday. When my dad took me to the market to buy some groceries. When we were going inside the grocery shop, the bicycle shop next to it caught my eyes. I was crazy about bikes. When I saw my dad busy buying groceries, I sneaked outside and started exploring the different bikes and their advanced mechanisms like their smooth brakes. I just could not get my hands off those bikes as, I had always dreamed of having one. ...read more.


I waited for him anxiously so that I could cut my cake and open up my presents. Finally he was home at seven and surprisingly he was not alone. He had bought me the same bike. I could not believe my eyes. I was completely gob smacked. I stood there for a couple of minutes staring at the bike. It seemed too good to be true. I was jumping all around with excitement. After I had released my excitement, I started to look at my dad and I tried to work out "how he knew that I wanted this bike". I was still thinking about it when he started to answer my thought by saying "I saw you at the bicycle shop and I was very aware of your passion for bicycles" I was completely astonished that he even knew what I was thinking just by reading my face. He continued saying that "Parents always know about their children's needs". I thought "that just explains it all". It was the best birthday I ever had. These are some of the moments I wanted to share with everyone. I can't forget these two episodes of my life. They play a very important part in my life. ?? ?? ?? ??
