So, @notsugarcoating hoped to see a most from me on some moments in my life that stick out to me. There are so many, but I decided to pick seven that stick out. I hope that all of you learn something new about me!
To participate, tag your piece with #somemoments or tag @notsugarcoating in your comments. Of course, thanks to @notsugarcoating for this wonderful idea! Over the past several weeks, Commaful has definitely felt closer to me. :)
1) I have broken both my wrists. The first time was in 2009, when I fell down a flight of stairs, and the second time was in 2014, when I fell backwards on a wet field.
I recently got a surgery done for a ganglion cyst (essentially, a ‘balloon’ of fluids that was in my wrist and restricted movement) on my left wrist – the one I broke in 2009!
2) I remember being terrified on the train to my first day of University back last autumn. It was for English class (I want to major in English and become a teacher) and upon walking up the stairs of the campus, I suddenly felt more empowered.
I actually made it to University!
3) In 2014, I went on a trip without any family members, for the first time, to New York City! When I was in Times Square, I got such a surreal sensation: I was actually in THE New York City!
I have never felt that way again, besides maybe visiting Hobbiton in New Zealand later that year!
4) When graduating high school last year, I was in a Writing class and I wrote the first four chapters of a theoretical novel. It’s one of the accomplishments that I am most proud of, and I loved discussing the characters, world, and ideas with my teacher.
I received full marks in it from her, but I sadly was too humble in my self-evaluation. I am my worst critic!
5) Some of my best friends used to dislike me. I become friends with someone (this was in 2012) because they locked my locker upside down and I still managed to unlock it.
That impressed them and we are still very good friends!
6) 2013 is the year that I first felt inspired by others, instead of just myself, to write. I have an idea for a novel that I started on and showed to a friend in Air Cadets.
She loved it and said that it was apparently University-level! I hope to put that idea to reality one day, but the idea for it keeps evolving!
7) Also in 2013, I went to a Cadet summer camp for two weeks. I told our one of the Cadets in charge of our group that one of my goals was to be more social with others.
During the graduation parade, I received an award for Most Improved Cadet and that Cadet in-charge told me to never stop going on my journey! That was one of the most inspiring moments of my life to me.
I hope you liked this list! Also, here is a bonus moment: Doing a seven-minute skit in front of an entire class by myself about immigration to Canada in the late 1800s. There were a lot of acts and I can't do an Indian accent despite my background. :)
Anyways, that's it! I hope to see many of you participate too and share some of your moments. Thank you to my brother too, for the pictures! Take care, all! :D
