"It was raining when I was born on April 13, 1994. I was born at the Stone Ridge hospital at 3:15 in the morning. I was a premature baby, and weighed only 4 pounds. My parents brought me home one week later. I started walking when I was 8 months old. I was a very lively child. When I started school at age 5, my brother had already started middle school. I learned a lot from my brother growing up. I would often ask him for help with my homework. It took me 1 month to learn how to ride a bike. I was so happy when I finally learned. I started to learn Japanese in 2000. I have been learning Japanese diligently for 5 years. I lived in Engleburg for 5 years. I moved 2 times before I moved to Eastwood when I was 8 years old. That summer, I cut my finger open in my garage while I was rollerblading. I was so afraid because I have never had such a serious injury before. I went to the hospital and got stitches. I got them removed before I started school in September. I started 4th grade at Riverview Street School. I made a lot of friends. I also adopted a 2-week old puppy and named him Juniper. I started middle school at Eastwood Avenue Middle School in 2003. I made even more friends here and got along very well with my teachers. I graduated in 2006, the same year my brother graduated from high school. I had a hard time during my freshman year at Short Hills High School. I moved to Edmonton Park temporarily and attended Edmonton High School. It was a very small school. I got along with everyone and still keep in touch with my friends. So far, my junior year has been fun but stressful. My life has been adventurous."
Please ignore the choppy sentences. This is for my niece.
