Introduction

Korhan Uysal English Original Writing I can't have been more than about 3 at the time. This is the main reason I can't remember much about this particular time. From the snippets I do remember, I shall try to explain to you, my last few days before I had to leave Turkey to come to London. I didn't actually know that this day was going to be different from any other; but when you're 3 you don't actually have much control over what your day will be like so this was pretty much a given. My first memory of the day consists of the daily routines after you get up: washing your face, brushing your teeth. The house was pretty bare and there were a lot of boxes around the place, which would account for a lot; but being a 3 year old, you don't notice these things much. At 3 your only concerns are what toys will you play with today and who you will be playing with. ...read more.

Middle

There is a black spot here in my memory. A great patch of black as I can't remember my uncle getting out the car, or where we dropped him off but I'm sure a great deal of time had passed because it was darker now, but the sound still hadn't returned. My memory occurs in complete silence. Again I can see my father talking but I can't hear his voice. It's very frustrating, as he could have been telling me about coming to England but I must not have been paying as much attention to him as I was to the inhabitants of the glove box. I feel bad now, but I can't do anything about it now so all I have to do is hope it wasn't too important what he was telling me. Waking up, presumably the next morning, or maybe the morning after; I remember not doing a lot that day and feeling very bored. The problem with being a young child is you get bored very easily: especially when you have an extremely small attention span like mine. ...read more.

Conclusion

My final memory is at the airport. It was coming to sunset and the sky was beautiful. There was beautiful pink tinge to all the clouds. The horizon was beginning to turn into an orange haze. I remember sitting in the caf´┐Ż of the airport with my cousins my aunt and my uncle for one final time. Me not realising that we were going away. Once on the plane I pleaded with my parents to get the window seat. I looked out and waved in the hope that my cousins would see what I was doing. I remember I was very tired and that I fell asleep on the plane. That is more or less where my memories end. I think by being about 3 at the time there was no way I could have remembered any of this better. At the time of writing this, 13 years has passed since this happened to me. It does feel strange that I know so little about such a life changing event but I think it's better to know a little than nothing at all. ...read more.
