    Timothy's Life

  • First Communion

    This was the day I recieved my first communion. Being catholic, getting my first communion was a huge day because it meant that I am just one step closer to being "part of my church". The fact that I could go up and recieve the bread and wine just like all the other adults made me feel mature and significant during church.
  • My first 600 on the CST

    I was in fourth grade when I got my 600 on the math CST. Thinking back on it, it seems like nothing because fourth grade math is so easy to me right now. But back in that moment, it was such a huge deal to me. A 600 on the CST is a perfect score, which is pretty rare. And knowing that I've gotten a perfect score on an important test gave me a sense of true accomplishment. I realized that I COULD do what I thought was impossible.
  • My First Scrambled Eggs

    I was about 11 when I first made my own scrambled eggs. It sounds a little dumb, but I felt "confident" when I made my own food. I was home alone at the time and I got hungry. My parents were out at a wedding and wouldn't be back for another 2 hours so I made my own scrambled eggs. Being able to make my own food like that made me feel independent, that I could take care of myself.
  • Getting My Fixed-Gear Bike

    I really wanted this type of bike for a long time. It's a track style racing bike. When my brother and I put the bike together, I started riding that thing for miles a day. It was summer and every morning, I got up and rode it around the city for 3-4 miles. During those morning rides, I realized that there really is a bigger world out there, and at some point, I'm going to have to navigate through it on my own just like I did on my morning rides.
  • Got Into Oxford

    I was woken up by a phone call telling me that I was on the waiting list and there was a spot open for me, and of course I said yes. I felt like there was something "magical" about the phone call. The first time I took the entrance exam, I failed it. I took it the second time and failed again, yet some how I was able to get in. My parents constantly said I was going to go to Oxford, and after getting accepted after failing twice made me feel I was bound to go there.
  • Ran Away

    This isn't really running away, I just left without telling my parents. I got into a fight with my dad and didn't want to be near him at the time. I took my bike and rode to my aunt's house without him knowing. When I got to my aunt's house, they told me that my parents were looking everywhere for me, and that they called to see if I was there. It was only for a couple hours, but during those couple hours made me realize that my parents really cared about me, and how important family is.
  • Car Accident

    When I got home from school, I found out my grandpa got in a car accident. He wasn't seriously injured, but his car got completely wrecked. This was our first serious car wreck, and it got me thinking. Just a little faster, and my grandpa could've died. My grandparents are getting pretty old now, and they can easily make one wrong turn while driving, or missing a step and get seriously hurt. Ever since the accident, I've been spending more and more time with them, before its too late.
