My Childhood…
“Looking back on a childhood filled with events and memories, I find it rather difficult to pick on that leaves me with the fabled “warm and fuzzy feelings.” As a first daughter of a workaholic man, I actually felt the little sadness of being a child. When my father got home from his work, it was always late in the evening and when I wake-up early in the morning, his still sleeping until my School Bus comes. It always happened. But when he’s on vacation, he never fails to surprise me with a bunch of new toys and sweets. He even takes my Mommy and me to a Park, Malls, Zoo, etc.
When my little sister’s come into our life, it gets happier. There are times when i together with my sister went to the school together and my dad and mom would fetch us and went to the Ocean Adventure. There were lots of beautiful places that my family goes when vacation.
I thought that our family is perfect, and suddenly my Childhood is nearly my miserable nightmare, because when I was 6-8 years old, I saw everything that happens when my Mom and Dad were fighting and I don’t know why. Then when I become 9 years old, I decided to come with my grandparents (which is my mother’s side) here in Bicol. My parent’s let me to come. So I continue my studies while my mother is visiting me monthly. Then 1 day, when I’m turning 10 years old, my mother together with my little sisters went here in Bicol. And that’s the thing; I never realize that they left my Daddy in Manila. And time’s goes by, my daddy was visiting us, and my little sisters continue they’re studies with me. When I turn 1st year high school, that’s the time when my dad and mom never see each other again and Dad stop visiting us, but all I know is that my Dad is only busy with his job. And suddenly, I heard a gossip about my Daddy, that he’s having an affair with his Boss that has been he’s last Girlfriend back in their high school days. And then my mommy told me that they’re already separated. And I know everything about my father’s undoing’s. That when I was still in my mother’s womb, Dad is already having different affairs, for short my dad is a simple playboy. And when I already know everything, I changed. I changed a lot that I’ve become hard headed, selfish, etc. I even have my very first failing grades.
But times went by, everything is perfect again. I learn how to be responsible, appreciate little things, and to accept the fact that nothing’s perfect in life. And now, I already have a little brother and a half baby brother and baby sister.”

Also, with both Kalman and Neufeld’s essays I received positive responses, and felt that I could confidently write about both…

    In Looking Backward, Edward Bellamy argued that one of the most significant problems facing America in 1887 was the struggle of class and the values that the everyday citizen lived by and portrayed. In the past, everyone looked after himself or herself and did not live selflessly. The view of honor was skewed and people lived for currency rather than their countries and neighbors well being. A sense of equality is never reached like it has been in the utopia of the year 2000 that Bellamy portrays…

    In a global city such as London, one might expect to find a variety of people from many distinct cultures and backgrounds. The extent to which this is true, however, can only be realized when immersed in the sights and sounds of multiculturalism for the first time. This is something I personally hope to encounter in December, but experienced from the perspective of a young Nigerian girl in Little Bee, by Chris Cleave, this awareness is magnified and even takes on a life of its own. Culture is…
