An important memory (IV) – Robinson

Last week, our Advanced class wrote about one of their most important memories. Here’s part 4: Robinson looks back at meeting his wife!   During our lives we are supposed to make important decisions. Some of them don’t make any difference in the life ahead. But some…well, change us forever. When we are young we think about who will spend our lives with. It’s one of those important decisions to make. No doubt. Sometimes is one-track mind. This kind of matter involves many things we should consider. Who is the person? What are the qualities I seek? Etc. But, all of this are easy to answer, because the real problem to resolv is: do you have courage to talk to her? As matter of fact, if you are not able to communicate her your feelings you are not be able to succeed, no matter the way you look at it. This is might be a bigger problem if we consider a person who is extremely shy, and, unfortunately, I was, so you can easily imagine what a enormous overcoming I should face in this matter. But, the heart speak louder. I saw the girl. She had brown, long, curly hair and blue eyes like two diamonds. I realized she was the one. Wow, but how could I talk to her? What would I say?

Last week, our Advanced class wrote about one of their most important memories. Here’s part 2: Joy warns us about pickpockets! — An important memory of my life Watch out for thieves wherever you are! I’d like to tell a story about how I lost my wallet in the central city of Prague. About 3 years ago, I went to Prague with my friends. Prague is a marvellous place to visit.

Moreover, we had wonderful meals there with reasonable price. Everything seems so perfect! However, bad things always comes with good things. My wallet was stolen! I really don’t know how was it happened. I always put my bag in front of me, and check it all the time. Because I know there are so many thieves in Prague that I must be careful of my belongings. I remembered the sunset was really beautiful at the Old Town Square, I couldn’t help to stop at the middle of the square and take a lot of photos. I think that’s why my wallet was stolen at that time. I focused on the beautiful scenery in front of me, and ignored there were crowded in the square. As I felt hungry and wanted to find a restaurant, I found my wallet was stolen. My mind was totally blanked at that time. Because all my credit cards, ids, and cashes in that wallet! How stupid I am to put all things in one place. Luckily I … Read more
