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

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.

From (Growing up Through Elementary School)
Original Memory Interview Question

What was your first memory?


His Response:

I remember the Ravine where when I was about 2-3 yrs old my Older siblings would play and I had to stay behind a gate, But when I finally got my chance... My parents were upset at the older sibs for not paying attention to me MORE and they were grounded for the next few days. I on the other hand, was taken to a safe park every day for the next week (it was their punishment) and they resented taking me there. Later that year we were to move to a new house and one of my sibs got an idea to run off to the ravine just as the moving truck was arriving and we spent a whole hour searching for Him until a neighbour suggested we look there
and sure enough...there he was playing on an old tire swing having a great time when all of a sudden my Dad snuck up on him and dragged him home by the ear. We all said goodbye to the old house but I was not comfortable with that so my DAD made a special arrangement for me to come back once again to the old neighborhood. . . . Read More..

From (Middle School Confusion)
Original Memory Interview Question

Where did you feel most accepted at the time of being a teenager?


His Response:

i really liked to be in the halls when no one else was around. i excelled at getting out of class for not entirely any good reason at all. it also helped that i had a formidable security blanket hooded sweat shirt ensemble. i enjoyed going home for lunch, but i didn't really like to go outside if i didn't have to.
