From (Early Life)
Original Memory Interview Question

What parts of the world and where did you live when you were a child? Was it the ghetto? Or was it luxurious and pampered? Look back on it and ask yourself how that influenced your life today.


His Response:

Well because I lived in Canada I would like to say I did not have to worry about Ghettos but then...you can believe that if you want to. Canada has had its share of 'other side of the track' citizens and my own life was influenced some how by the people that perpetrated the exclusion of others in our little 'cliques' because of their status either financially or ethnically. I was always going against their wishes and associating with those 'undesirables' whenever I could; whether they be from a subsidized housing project commonly known as 'the projects' or just the wrong place in town. Unlike America we had the integration debacle well handled (or so we thought) within our public school system at an early stage of our countries history. So yes! I was influenced by that.

From (Early Life)
Original Memory Interview Question

When you were a kid, what places did you travel? If you did not travel extensively, think of times where you traveled within your own neighborhood and outskirts. What can you remember from any of these mini journeys? Also, who joined you in your travels?


His Response:

Well I was not all that young but when I was about fifteen or Sixteen I traveled Europe with my Dad who wanted me to see where he was stationed during the war (WWII) and so it was a trip to all those places England, France, Germany, Italy, and some of the Baltic States of the Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.) and especially in Rome and the Island of Sicily.

Original Memory Interview Question

How do you think your life growing up was different than what goes on today in a child's life?


His Response:

Children today are 'spoiled brats' direct quote from my Mother.

Well I would say this much, there are some kids who have been given everything and had to earn nothing and that is why they do not like it when they find out to make a living as an Adult they have to actually work. As a child I was given a small allowance from my Dad but as I got older I had to do chores or I didn't get the allowance at all. As I got older I started working part time after school to make extra money to help out the family as my father had lost his job and we were not poor but we were struggling to keep the bills paid monthly. Every time I was given my allowance I was told I had to give back some to my favorite charity and some to the church poor box ans some I had to save then the rest I could spend. Kids today do not get that same sense of responsibility as we did because they are given too many options for everything it is a 'Multiple Choice' life for them we were given less choices.

One night I brought out my friend Michelle and my Best Friend Nick out to canada. At this point they had hung out a little and were even dating for a bit. my friend Michelle thought he was really cute, but he just wasnt her type or something.

Anyway, so we all go out as minors over to Canada and it was a totally wild night.

  • Michelle ended up peeing on a tree in a church lawn!!
  • She borrowed Nicks Sweater and never gave it back (Having Kristen give it to him at U of M)
  • And just some crazy times at the bars. I think we were out until 4 AM.


Maybe you two can give me more insight by giving your recollection of the night. Love you guys.
