My Story: The Picture of my early life (Part 1)
I was born on the third day in the month of April, on the year of the snake,1965. I'm the fourth child in the family of 7 children that consist of 4 male and 3 female. I don't remember much during the early years of my infant life as I never heard nor asked about it from my parents, and I also doesn't have prove of it because there doesn't any pieces of prove that I will be proud of, as a history of my infancy life.
The first and foremost important picture of my early chilhood that still exist till now in my sub-concious mind is how one day my father brought me along to the paddy field on his broad and strong shoulder, as I'm a young king. The second picture of my early childhood history, that somehow still influences me, sometime, that happen during one of the many festival that we have to celebrate according to our custom, is how I fell sick, and was given a special care by the many guest that came to our house for the celebration that my parents held. On this special occasion, I was freely roaming around sitting on a big laddel made of woods, as I was ridding a motocycle, with a sound of an engine running, yet I don't know nor have seen any motocycle yet.
The few picture that still live quite strong in my mind till now is a celebration that every male when they have reach their puberty age, and as a custom in our culture till today, that they have to undergo for a circumcision. As for myself, I went through my circumcision in a modern way, done by a Christian evenglist, a priest from Scotland, by the name of Canon Eric Scott, a domination of Anglican. The celebration for circumcision starts early in the morning, where a boy have to soak himself in the cold river for about one hour, as early as 4.00 am in the morning. After that, the boy have to be brought home by carrying him on the back of an adult, because it is stated that the boy should not work on the ground before the circumcision starts. Reason, I also don't know.
The circumcision is done outside the the house, at the berandah or we call " pantey ", a big open space built in front of the kitchen, usually used as a place to dry paddy or other things. The boy have to be seated on the banana trunk, and the circumcision is done by the specialist, who have the know how. After the circumcision is done, the boy have to lie down wearing a sarong, and the sarong is tied to a ceiling with a string, taking a shape of a mosquito net right in the middle of the sitting room. For about seven days, the boy have to undergo a rigid food intake regulation after circumcision.
During this seven days period, there will be a lot of guest coming to congratulate the boy. After the seven days period is over, then the parents of the boy will have to celebrate for the boy, as from that time onwards, the boy is seen as matured person, although his age is still 12 or 13 years old. For the celebration, a big pig and dozen of chicken have to be kill, depend on the capabilities of the family concern, usually to feed the many guest that have been invited for the celebration.
To me, I didn't have the chance to feel this experience because my circumcision is done in a modern ways, where after circumcision we are able to roam freely without any taboo's or strict food regulation. My two older brother is luckier because that have the experience of it.
My Story: Learning Process of my early childhood.(Part 2)
In the month of January, 1973, it is the year when I began to have a deep memories that I can still clearly remember until now. It is the year when I started my schooling days at a small primary school which was built and started by the christian evangelical since 1800 something. The school name is " Holy Name Primary School ", which still exist until today. This school consist of 4 rooms. 3 rooms for classroom, and another room for the teachers. During my time at the primary school, the intake is alternately, once in two years.
I started my formal learning not in my mother tongue language, nor in our national language, but purely in English. I started to pronounce alphabeth, words and numbers in English. In primary school, I some how create a bit of history, that is since primary one until primary six, I behold to the number One when ever we have our school exam. The sad thing is, as far as I remember, my parents never seem to have acknowledge my good achivement. As to me, this achivement also mean nothing more than just a routine in school, that mean I don't care and bother much to it. Asked me now , I don't have an answer to it.
It's a hard time during my primary school days. Everday I have to walks about two miles to school, on a gravel road, as early as 6.00 am in the morning, and return home around two or three in the afternoon. The funny things is, I never have my lunch box to school, although in the morning I'll only have a cup of coffee. Shoes, I never dream of it, because my parents can only afford a simple rubber slippers, and when the slippers torn apart, that mean I have to be bare footed to school. Belt, nice to have one, but the reality I never have. The only belt that I know to tighten my school shorts is a plastic string. School beg, unfortunately I don't have the knowledge about it too. I always put my school books in a plastic beg, tug inside at the backside of my school white shirt and tied the end parts of my school shirt tightly, off I go.
That the reality of my primary school life. I don't regret it, because I now know that I am always grateful for what I have and I treasured it most. I learned a lot from this simple way of acquiring a formal education. I will never blamed my parents for what I have experience, because I know that the best they can give me. I am grateful to them because they are the one to give me the chance to live in this beautiful world. creation of the Almighty God.

Hi, I'm Hazel. And I'm 12 years old. It's going to sound weird to you, but i'm missing five bones for normal people. How's it missing? My hands are tied and I can put my head in my head comfortably in the back. Okay, that might sound ridiculous to you. But these are facts. This happened when I was born. I was in the hospital for three weeks. Then I could only get out. And is that useful? No, it's not. Because when normal people can't do it, I do it, and they try, they break their bones.If you really want to hear me, let me tell yoThen when I was playing, a girl named Azra stuck to my foot and made me stay in the hospital for a week... They covered all the costs... She never stopped by school again... And I I got a strange disease... u my whole story! I live with my parents, I have three brothers.I'm a maid and babysitting... It's enough for my glasses with dresses and food, but fine! Now, without talking too much, Let me go into my story. I could open a leg when I was 6. Of course, you think everyone who goes to gymnastics will turn on, don't you? Wrong! I was able to open a leg even though I didn't go to gymnastics. My family was surprised by this! And I've opened a channel for it. But when the channel didn't get overseen, I deleted it. Anyway, it doesn't matter! Then I started uploading videos again. Then I started middle school last year.Then for some reason, blood started coming out of my eye... Yes, that's right, I had a disease, and when I found out, I cried for six days without leaving my room. After their... My father left me and my family in a nice house! I was shocked... I know my story is too complicated! And I'm sure you won't listen to it... And I'm telling you, take a lot of care for yourself... I just want to cut it short!

ashley on March 23, 2020:
Hi! my name is Ashley, and this story happened when i was 17, as a child I wasn’t too spoiled, but I got a good amount of clothes and things i needed and also a good amount of attention, when i turned 16 my mom got pregnant, every night I would kiss her belly pretending like the baby was there.When my little sister was born I was in love with her, as time went my parents started to pay more attention that her, i was about to turn 17 in a week, but it looked like they didn’t care.When the day of my birthday arrived I excepted at least a small party because my sister always got huge parties, since i just turned 17 and i was grown up I expected at least a small party with a cake, as I was walking home from work i got out my phone and checked the time, it was 4:24PM i rushed home before my parents noticed i was late i usually get home at 3:05PM when i finally got there i opened the door, as i passed by my parents, they just said happy birthday. My sister was in her room packing her stuff for a sleepover, i just ignored it and went to my room. i went on my phone and checked social media and realized how nobody said happy birthday.The next day my parents always treated me bad, once i broke my phone and i couldn’t unlock it, then a month later my sister broke her brand new phone that she got 2 days ago and my dad just said u gotta be more careful haha and he went to the store and came back with a new phone and some candy for her. You might say i was just over acting, but she got that brand new phone 2 days ago and i had the same old phone for about 3 years. i got treated like this for a whole year until i finally turned 18. I packed all of my stuff i packed my favorite clothes some pijamas and some clothes for swimming and some winter outfits.I packed my tooth brush and all my allowance, i had been saving up my allowance for the longest time, i had a lot of money so i can survive. as i packed everything i closed the suit case and put it under my bed, since i had a lot of money i snuck out to get a new phone. There was a store that sells phones not too far away so i took my sisters bike and went to get a new phone. I got a new phone with good data so i can keep contact with friends. As i got home the phone only has 30% so i charged it for a little until it reached 100% when it reached it i set up my new phone hoping my parents didn’t see it because if they did, they would say why i complained when i had money and all this stuff so i kept it a secret, i took the charger and my phone, put it in my suit case and went off. Right as i was about to leave i heared foot steps so i put my suit case away and I pretend i was reading a book, my dad said we are going to the store we will only last 5 minutes wash the dishes. I said ok, after they left i new this was my chance i washed them dishes fast i went into the pantry and got some chips and food i will say i took a lot of food, and since my sister wasn’t there i went in my sisters room and got some clothes and shoes, anyways we fit in each others clothes,I got any stuff i would need and i took some money from my parents, they had a lot and they wouldn’t mind me taking a couple dollars, i went off and as i was leaving the neighborhood i saw my parents car, i ran to the other side of the neighborhood and they didn’t see me, as soon as they went inside the house i went off, I walked for 30 minutes and there was a hotel right across the street so i went and stayed there for 2 nights, luckily the people there where very nice. I went into my room unpacked and went to bed, I woke up the next day to 3 phone calls from my mom and 6 from my dad, i forgot that the night i added then on iMessage, so i just blocked them, I got ready for the day and went out somewhere, i took some dollars and went to the mall, i got a protective phone case for my phone so it wouldn’t break again and i got some food, i got a new pair of shoes and left the mall, i went to the hotel and put my shoes next to the bed, i went to take a shower and walking into the bathroom was like a whole dream, it was so fancy and big. Running away and exploring things isn’t too bad after all. I took a shower and the shower was on a whole diffrent level of fancy. After i got out of the shower i took some shampoo, they had a whole closet of shampoo and lotions and more, it had a sign that said feel free to take 1 i took 2 instead, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal right? i left the hotel after the last night and i left the hotel, it was dark at night and i didn’t know where to go, but then i remembered that my friends house is close to here so i went to her house, i didn’t wanna wake her parents up so i snuck into her room, she was using her phone and when she saw me she said “WHO ARE YOU?” I could tell she was about to yell but i turned on the lights and said it’s me! Ashley! she said oh phew, what are u doing here? i explained everything to her and she let me stay a couple nights, the last night i said bye i have to go, she said bye and give me a bag of chips 20$ and a soda here incase u need it, I said thank u and went off, it’s been about 2 weeks and i was running low on food and the clothes i had was getting dirty. i decided to break into a store for 24 hours, so I did it and unfortunately i got caught, the next morning i woke up to police men asking why i’m here they asked a couple question and they let me go, Time came by and i met this guy named alex, he was super sweet and had the best smile, i told him about my life and he understood, we became boyfriend and girlfriend and he moved in with me, we had a baby. Now i am 23 living in a house with a baby girl and i miss my parents i hope i can see them again one day.

evelina on January 27, 2020:
Hello, I'm Selin, I'm 14 years old and I'm a migraine patient. So I want to share with you the horrible story I live.
What is migraine first? Migraine pain can start in environments such as light, high temperature, sun, noise, crowd, cold. Chronic headache between the tib is addressed! I have migraine for 3 years or I don't know I discovered 3 years ago! If you have a migraine, choose to be in quiet places, this is a reminder that you will not be away from the crowded noises and this is a remark! Be in the dark places that you have less chance of coming. Throughout migraine pain throbbing happens a lot of time.
In the second one, you will not like the crowded places as I just mentioned the symptoms. There is nausea and vomiting. If you experience a long-lasting headache, it is highly probable that your migraine will immediately be told to your family and ask them to see a doctor immediately.
Now if you are knowledgeable about migraine, let me tell you about the horrible memory I couldn't forget, and after this incident, we went to the doctor immediately!
We came from a crowded guest. (I must say that my brother, Cem
with our rooms side by side or even ice ice!) As I said, since I had migraines, there was pain in the crowd, then I was not different, so I did not know, I thought that my migraine was simply a headache, I thought I turned off the lights as if I had a migraine headache. I said I was drinking, I got up, went to the kitchen, I did not light the lights, it was not very comfortable. If they brought a doctor to the chest, the doctor said that these symptoms are a migraine symptom.
