Colleen's Life

  • Born

    I was born in Ontario, Canada in Scarborough Grace Hospital and I was born at 8 o'clock in the morning. My parents think that the reason I am a morning person is because of the time my birth took place.
  • Took My First Steps

    Took My First Steps
    Although I do not remember this very day, it is very significant to me. I still have my very first pair of shoes!
  • My Sister was Born

    My Sister was Born
    On January 16, 1999 my little sister was born. At the time, I was only 4 and I didn't really find this event to be significant. As I grew older, I realised how important this day was and how happy I was to have a younger sibling!
  • Learned to Ride a Bike

    Learned to Ride a Bike
    This is the day I learned how to ride a bicycle. Well it wasn't really a bicycle, it was a tricycle. I used to ride my bike in the house and I went out to the park with my parents almost everyday. It was an activity that kept me busy and out of trouble and I continue to ride my bicycle to this very day.
  • First Day of Kindergarden

    First Day of Kindergarden
    On my first day of kindergarden, i was a bit nervous andi didn't want my mom to leave me so she ended up staying the whole day. After a couple more days of school, I realised it wasn't so bad and I made a bunch of new friends! The friends that I made in kindergarden, the teachers i met and the things I learned will always be remembered.
  • Lost My First Tooth

    Lost My First Tooth
    The day I lost my first tooth was an exciting day. Itwas the day my mom told me about the Tooth Fairy and how if I put my tooth under my pillow I would wake up to a surprise. When I woke up, I checked under my pillow and found money! This made me super happy!
  • Met Prime Minister Paul Martin

    Met Prime Minister Paul Martin
    In elemetnary school we began reading 'Flat Stanley' books and decided to create a character called Flat Mark. We made our own Flat Mark and this seemed to attract the current Prime Minister to our school. We sent him Flat Mark and he decided to come visit. When he came, he showed us all the adventures Flat Mark has been on with the Prime Minister. We even had a red carpet for the Prime Minister to walk on. For more go to:
  • Graduation

    Graduation was an amazing day! I got dressed up, got to hang out with my friends and even ended up getting the science and french award as well. I felt very accomplished to have finished middle school and I was very excited to start high school. Grade 8 graduation is a day i will never forget!
  • Meeting My Favourite Band (Stereos)

    Meeting My Favourite Band (Stereos)
    On October 24, 2009 I went to Vaughn Mills Mall with my sister and cousin. We waited in line for about 4 hours to meet one of our favourite bands. They are called 'Stereos' and i got them to sign a shirt, poster and CD. In the end, it was worth the wait to meet them and it's a day I'll remember forever!
