A bitter-sweet story of my childhood was in half day kindergarten we had a meeting with our parents and the teacher at the end of the year and the first two kids to get to her classroom got a fish. I was the first and I got fish and its name was Snowflake. I died about two weeks later so me and my mom went to Walmart and bought a new one.
From setting herself on fire to gunning down a pervert, she had showed her own independence and used her wisdom to solve each conflict she had ever encountered. At a young age of three, Jeannette Walls had set herself on fire while cooking hot dogs. Unknowing to her, while she bent down to offer the treat to her dog, her favorite pink dress caught on fire. This resulted in her having to get skin grafts and a newly developed fascination towards open flames. She’d watch her neighbor burn trash and immediately run over to stare at the red heat.

We argued just like any other siblings over who got the best clothes or for eating each other’s food without asking for permission. My siblings, especially my middle sister will tell me to get the TV remote even when it was only 10 feet away, make the bed every morning because she was feeling too “lazy” or help her with the house chores because learning house chores at an early age was important. Now that I introspect upon these moments, I realize that it has shaped my identity in a way that if it did not happen I would not be as responsible and mature as I am today. However, the memories that I shared with my siblings also created a void in my heart to have a younger sibling- a brother or sister did not matter to me. All I knew was that I did not want to accept that I was the youngest of three sisters and one brother.
Nevertheless, my parents told me to eat more, as I was the only child of them. Still, they couldn’t stop my persistent obsession for eating like a bird, and one day my father said “Hey, you should fast.” I said, “F-A-S-T? What is that?” Then my father said, “Don’t eat at all if you can’t finish it.
It was a Friday noon. I left the office early and went to the store to by something for weekends. It was unexpectedly crowded for this time of day, and my “enemy” was there. She already bought a package of eggs and looked for some vegetables. My briefcase gave me a plan; slight movement, and she looks at the bag with a raw omelet, while I’m calmly threading my way to the dairy section between other costumers.
I never realize saving an animal’s life would give people hope and faith, until I saved a baby raccoon one day during last summer when I was on a family camping trip. We were at a gas station when it all happened, and the people in side asked me why I saved the raccoon, because it was just a baby I said. Yeah but it could have bit you a lady said to me, if it did then fine i would deal with it, and she walked away from me. I didn’t care because I was happy that I did something right.
It all began when I was four years old: this event that would bring worry and hardship into my family for seven years. A few days after my sister’s second birthday, my parents decided to introduce her to peanut butter. I was happily enjoying a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, when my sister started grabbing at it. The doctor said to wait to introduce babies to peanuts until they are two years old, and since my sister had recently turned two, my mom decided to let my sister try a bite of peanut butter. Much to my dismay, she tore a piece off my sandwich and fed it to my sister.

When it was my 7th birthday my mom and dad decided to get me a dog. I was so excited but the day we had to get her I became sick. Second, we had to drive 10 hours to get her. That stunk because we had to keep stopping to take the medicine the doctor gave my mom.
From those life style, I learn that health is most valuable than any others. And now I would like to share some of my illness and how I get over from my illness with different life patterns. First, I had acute pancreatitis when I was three years old. My mother said that I vomited everything that I ate for three to four days and one day I was throwing up and crying for whole night.

Have you ever thought that you were going by the wrong birthday? After a 50 year old mystery was resolved a lady discovered that she has been going by the wrong birthday her entire life, and being adopted played a major role in the mystery. Kristie Hughes has wondered about her birth parents since she was a teenager, but it was years later that she learned her adoption was far from typical. A doctor in Georgia essentially sold her to her adoptive parents. Hughes is among roughly 200 adults who have come to be known as the “Hicks Babies,” newborns who were illegally sold into the black market adoptions by Dr. Thomas Hicks between 1950 and 1965, according to county birth records.
