    My Life

  • My Baptism

    My Baptism
    I was Baptized at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Hamilton, Ontario. My baptism was significant because it started the religeous part of my life. I was baptized because both my parents are Catholic, and they wanted to pass on the beliefs.
  • My First Word

    My first word was "mama". This is significant because it was the beginning of my very talkative nature.
  • My First Walk

    My first unassisted walk was between when I was 10 and 11 months old. That walk started my growth into an independant person that I am today.
  • My First Day of Grade 1

    My First Day of Grade 1
    My elementary school from junior kindergarten to grade 8 was St. Jerome.(Now combined with St. Catherine of Sienna and called Annunciation of Our Lord) This started my educational career.
  • My First Day of Guitar Lessons

    I started music lessons because my brother was learning keyboard. Before this, I always wanted to learn a musical instrument, because nearly everyone in my family plays an instrument. This event started my music career. Now I play guitar, and alto saxophone.
  • The Day I Played Guitar In Front of the Whole School

    The Day I Played Guitar In Front of the Whole School
    At first, I just played "Jingle Bells" on guitar in front my class. My teacher wanted me to play in front of another class, so I played. That teacher was organising a Christmas Assebly, and wanted me to play Jingle Bells in front of the whole school. So I ended up playing in front of everyone rather than just my class. After this, I felt really happy and proud of myself.
  • My First Communion

    My First Communion
    My First Communion was the second step in the religious part of my life. It started my own personal beliefs of religeon.

    The Day I Got My Dog, Mika
    Prior to this, my brother an I wanted a dog. We had been wanting a dog for a while, so 2 days before Christmas, we went to the mall. There was a pet store at the mall, so we looked at the dogs. There were 2 Yorkshire Terriers, one looked sleepy and lazy, but the other looked energetic and playful. We took the playful one, and named her Mika. Having a dog has taught me responsibility .
  • Directors Award

    Directors Award
    In May of grade 7, I received the Directors Award for Mathematics. This academic acheivement made me feel proud of myself and happy.

    Confirmation has been my latest sacrament. It was important because we decided if we wanted it, not our parents. It added to my growth of the independant person I am today.
  • Graduating From Elementary School

    Graduating From Elementary School
    Graduating from elementary school was a big event. It marked the end of my first educational experience. I got on the honour roll both years, grades 7 and 8. This made me determined to do so in high school, which I did!
  • Starting High School

    Starting High School
    Going into high school started the second part of my education. I knew it was going to be more serious than elementary school, but more fun too. It affects the rest of your life more than elementary school does.
  • Getting Into the Jazz Band

    Getting Into the Jazz Band
    On Tuesday, I found out that I had gotten into the STM All Stars Jazz Band. I am quite proud of myself, because when my dad was younger he was in a band, also playing alto saxophone, so I have received the torch.
