Personal Narrative: My Autobiographies In My Life

Superior Essays
Autobiographies sound like they could be potentially really boring in the sense that it’s easy to just ramble on about event after event with no real purpose. However, I plan to use my knowledge of this fine English language to make this the least boring autobiography ever. So where do I start? Well, I guess my life starts out like any other normal human being. I was born. I mean like, who wasn’t? Anyway, on March 9, 2000, at 7:54pm in New Milford Hospital, my life and this autobiography begin. After a little while on this planet Earth, I was discovering what my background and surroundings consisted of. I had two loving parents, four healthy grandparents, some aunts and uncles, a cousin, and no siblings. I had supposedly been an awesome baby, …show more content…
It was time for preschool, and at around the same time my mom started working at my grandfather’s bait & tackle store. Now the roads of 202 and 109 lead me to Washington, where I spent most of my preschool days. Going to preschool, 3 times a week, and helping my mom out at the store the rest of the week. Still, I was living the life. Then the preschool years were over, and my parents thought it would be beneficial for me to attend Rumsey Hall, a place my father graduated, in kindergarten. It was fun still, and it was only a minor expansion to my world. Life was cruising along as I advanced from kindergarten, to 1st grade, and on to 2nd grade, the last year before I would start to receives grades. But that was the least of my worries at the …show more content…
I was in my final year at Rumsey, and I was rocking it. I was a key part of three varsity sports, one of which my hard work earned me a starting spot over some of my surprised (and somewhat jealous) peers. I was also one of three students in my whole class to take all honors classes. I even peeked into my creative side and performed in a play, which was really fun. Now one would think Spring Break would be just as great as the rest of the year. Well it was the total opposite. Throughout all of this I, along with my peers, had applied to prep schools. And it didn’t go too well for me. It turns out the schools just didn’t think I was a good enough “investment”. Although I had the “grades, athletics, and personality to be a great prep student”, no one was willing to give me the financial aid I needed. Meanwhile, there were people pulling C’s with no athletic desire getting in to the very schools I applied for. This month of my life (with a little help from summer New Yorkers in my town) gave me a trait that I have to try to keep to myself. A hatred for ignorant rich

    Prior to college, I could perform poorly in a class and it would be irrelevant to me as I had no cognizance of the importance of education. I missed on average about twenty to twenty five days of school per year. Only about a tenth of those days missed were days I actually could not come to school. Going to school was the bane of my existence, I simply did not want to be there. How I managed to graduate on-time, I do not know.…

    It took me awhile to get through the belonging and love needs, and once I achieved it, it made me feel good about myself. The Physiological Needs was definitely the easiest to get through, and then the safety needs I got through. Coming to the Belonging and Love needs, this took me two years of high school to get through it. In the fifth grade, I got pulled out of public school for multiple reasons. First I wasn’t socially up to the caliber as everyone else was, and just in general I didn’t feel like I belonged in that setting.…

    Fortunately, the nearby private school allowed me to attend on a trial basis, with the plan being that I would complete Kindergarten again with my correct class the next year when I was five. However, I ended up exceed the expectations of the instructors and they insisted I move on the 1st grade as I understood the materials better than most in my class. As I continued though grammar school, middle school and even some of high school, I never really had to study much because retaining information came easy to me.

    Towards the end of high school, I got accepted into an early college program at a nearby community college. I was able to get two years of college for free along with receiving an Associates of Arts degree. The program was very challenging being that I had never had any experience with going to college. I made a few C’s my first two semesters and was so upset. I had never been challenged so much since I was so used to the high school way of things where I could slack off and still make an A. I quickly learned I had to change up my studying skills if I wanted to do well.…

    I was right. no, my new home was not as big nor as fancy, but I discovered that was not a setback. Although the resources were not directly visible nor as easily accessible, I learned that obstacles did not exist for students there. Most, if not all, of the students had the same hunger for knowledge as I had. This summer my school announced that the building which we had been using had fire code violations and we could not return to our building in the fall.…

    I’ve never really given college much thought since I had that horrible experience in high school. I feared the same would happen and I would lose interest in school. I started attending MJC in the fall of 2011. At first I had struggled to stay focused, but sure enough after the first year I found to be wrong about my preconceived notions. In fact, because college courses require so much participation between students and instructors everyone benefited.…
