  • Personal Narrative: My Autobiographies In My Life

    was lucky to be in the situation I was in. I was sheltered through most of my elementary school years like most of us are and I never really faced any real adversity until age 7. If only the second half of my life was like that. Anyway, back to the timeline. After spending my early couple of years on Big Bear Hill in New Milford, my family and I moved to Bantam, CT.

I would learn however that this move would shape my childhood in the future for the better. Bantam was a fantastic place to live. Bantam is a borough of Litchfield, with a population of around 800.

The only reason the population was so low is because Bantam is only 1 square mile in area. So around my second birthday, my world expanded from a house on Big Bear Hill to now a square mile. A square mile that I could play with my neighbors, play t-ball, and eat ice cream. I was living the life. Once again, my world expanded. 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…
