My birthday was on Thursday, so now I am 19 years old. It may not be the same to you, but for me it is a big number. I am not saying that I am old, because I am still very young. However, I am at this stage in life where you know you are not a child anymore. This has made me think a lot about my life experiences so far, and I thought I could share some of my memories with you. This will also be something I will love to read in the future. I will be showing you some old pictures. Some of them are from my first and second birthdays. The others are some nice memories in general.
As everyone, I’ve had up and downs in my life, but I have always been a happy child. I have had a family that has always been taking care of me. This is something many people do not pay attention to, but it makes the difference when it comes to having a happy life. Sometimes, I forget about it too to be honest. I just want to say thank you now for all of that, as I find it quite difficult to express my feelings in person.
In my family, the person who has influenced me the most is my mum. I may have some arguments with her from time to time, but I have to say that I admire her in many different ways. She is a really strong woman. She is also the person who has taught me to work hard in life and that no one is going to give you anything, you are the one who has to make an effort to achieve your goals. I will always be thankful for everything she has done for me.
Another important part of my life has been spending my summer holidays at a campsite. I have met a lot of people there. It has been a place where I’ve had so many incredible experiences and where I have spent a lot of time with my family and friends, as well as relaxing and enjoying the beach. My parents started going there when my brother, who is turning 33 this year, was still a child, so I have been going there since I was born, basically.
I have never caused too much trouble, but it is true that I have done some naughty things as a child. For example, in the image above in which I am holding a hose, what I was doing was trying to wet the camera and also my father. I actually tried to do so whenever I had the hose in my little hands. I can also remember how much I loved disturbing my brother when he was studying. I had a speaker with a microphone attached, and I used it to call him while he was revising for an exam. What a troublemaker!
I also used to be a bit weird (well, I still am, to be honest haha). My family has told me some of the weird things I used to do, such as sleeping in the position shown in the picture below. Apparently, I used to love that position, but why? I guess we will never know how I could be comfortable sleeping like that.
This has been a long rambley post. I always find it difficult to say what I feel, but writing it is much easier for me. I have definitely enjoyed going through all these images and memories. I hope you liked it, let me know what you think.
