As I sat there for two days, I wondered what the house was going to look like, what the neighbors would be like, and how the schools were. I never had to think of these things before. Two days later, my parents came and picked me up. On the way to my new home, my parents explained that it was not like the house we previously lived in. That statement scared me because I did not want to live in a smaller house nor did I want to share a room with either of my sisters.
I hope and prayed that God will protect you not to make the mistakes I made in my life. There were things I wish I had not done...and things I should have done. But also, there were many things I’m glad to have done it. One, was marrying your Mom. I was truly fortunate and blessed to have met your Mom.
He didn’t care who was looking or where they were, he wasn’t gone stop until he got them. If this was to happen in a different neighborhood, people would probably come out of their houses, wondering what’s wrong. When they finally realized that it’s a grown man chasing after kids, they would come out and help. People in my old neighborhood wouldn’t even care to know why he’s chasing them, they would go to shooting only because they see a man dressed up in city clothes, chasing after children. Every Halloween, my cousins and I get together late that night and egg people houses.
Next I run upstairs and get started on my homework because I knew I could play outside if I finished early enough. In the short poem Girl by Jamaica Kincaid, her words highlight her younger years being filled with lessons and advice on how her mother wanted her to live and act in society. My parents at a young age gave me life lessons along my journey to adult hood such as how cook , how to clean , how to catch fish, how to tie a knot so I don’t lose the fish, how to stand up for someone else, how to stand up for myself, when to stand up for myself. My parents always said “don’t start a fight but you sure should end one”. I may not be the tallest or strongest and some would say those words are what describe a “man”.
I grew up hearing the phrase “how and who you spend your childhood with shapes the person you become”. It was a common phrase in the South Asian household. My childhood was one that revolved around my siblings; they were the ones I grew up with and shared memories that I continue to cherish to this day. I grew up hearing stories from my grandma and my mom telling me about our little adventures that we took on every day in a small suburban part of Bangladesh. My childhood is filled with vivid memories of watching my sisters build me toys from scratch, running around in the open field after a heavy monsoon rain to find the ripest mangos and reading me their schoolbooks that had vocabulary words that you will only find in library section that
Becoming a father in my life was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Living for someone else and not just yourself is a special feeling. Knowing that it is your sole duties in life are now to love, provide, teach, mentor, discipline and love some more. I always hear people say “ Im don 't think I 'm ready to be a parent.” and to be honest I do not think anyone is ready to be a parent. I can still remember like it was yesterday the day my son was born.
Such as our first date to the zoo, when we first moved in together, when we first met, and when I first met his family. Oh, his family took me in and loved me as one of their own. I never really had a family with mine so the feeling was amazing. I will always love his family as if they were my own and will forever hold them in my heart dearly. I wish I could still talk to them.
My mom did not want to listen to my dad anymore, she was tired of him and want to be some where he was not. Many things I never knew about my parent’s relationship came out that
I remember those nights we used to stay up late and plan our futures of living in New York and working for a fashion magazine that only me and her knew. We also used to talk about plotting revenge on our other siblings. Looking back on these moments with my sister make me realise the true friendship we had. I have now realized that having a sister can be somewhat of an annoyance, for instance I can remember all the times my sister has made fun of me and manipulated me as we were growing up. But then again whose sister hasn’t done that to them?
There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic. My family’s past experiences also teach me how to live my life the best way possible.
