  • Prompt 1:

When I was a child I used to go to a popular fast food restaurant with my parents and it had a playground for kids. I was very shy so most of the time I would play on my own in the ball pit or swings.

One summer, my parents took me to the playground on a weekday and it was empty so you could imagine my excitement for having the whole place just for me. Minutes later, another girl entered into the area and even though it was the first time I saw her, we bonded really quickly and played for half an hour before my parents told me it was time to go. I wanted to say good bye to my new friend but I couldn鈥檛 return to the playground and I didn鈥檛 even know her name.

School started a few weeks later and to my surprise she was a new student that year. Her name was Natalie and she became my best friend at school.

Promt 1 A memory from when I was younger 馃槂

In the summer of 2012, it was the very first time my girlfriend and I took our first vacation abroad. We chose the city of Buzios in Brazil as it is globally known for being a great place to spend some time relaxing.
Unfortunately for us, the trip was full of problems.
Firstly, just once we arrived at the Rio de Janeiro airport we realized we did not have any cash. I thought my girlfriend would carry some money in cash but when I asked her she said she has forgotten and she became very sad. She thought she has ruined our vacations. As a result, I paid everything with my credit card.
Secondly, the shuttle which was supposed to pick us up from the airport to the hotel never came. Hence, we spend more than twelve hours at the airport till somebody picked us up. I remember both of us were really tired and just wanted to get to bed and get some sleep.
Finally, once we thought everything was fine, we were relaxing and swimming at a beautiful beach on a sunny afternoon when we saw a big cruise ship close to the beach. Somebody with many years living at Buzios warned us that many times the ship throws dangerous chemicals into the water so maybe we should have gone out from the water. The following night, all of a sudden, I woke up my girlfriend because I had woken up myself totally blind. I got a terrible conjunctivitis due to the chemicals from the cruise ship.
Long story short, that was the worst trip in our life.
Happily for us, even when we did not get the holiday we had planned, our love story moved forward anyway and we got married and now we have a gorgeous little boy.

TALK ABOUT A MEMORY YOU HAVE FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD
I remember that when I was two or three years old, my father took me to a little park in our neighbourhood, and there were two girls swinging. I can鈥檛 remember how or why, but I stepped in the way of one of these girls, and she hit me with her back, shoving me violently towards somewhere in the ground. I fell backwards and hit the back of my head with the floor. It really hurt, and my father took up and pet my head as I was crying out loud. Thereafter, I learned to stay away from people who are swinging in the park, since I don鈥檛 want to be into that horrible experience again.

TALK ABOUT AN UNUSUAL INTERACTION YOU HAD WITH A STRANGER
Once I was looking for an address in the downtown of the city where I live, around La Candelaria neighbourhood. It was my first time in that part of the city, and I had been looking for that address for about sixty minutes. So, there was a moment when I thought I had gotten lost. Suddenly, a little girl like about ten or twelve years old came up towards me and kindly asked if I were looking for something. She was a little girl, so I wasn鈥檛 taking her seriously, but somehow I told her about the address I was looking for, and to my surprise, she told me she knew the place that I was looking for. So, I followed her, kind of skeptical, and saying to myself 鈥渨hat am I doing?鈥. But she actually took me to that place, and meanwhile I was checking whether my direction overlapped with the place where I was, I turned back to say to the little girl 鈥渢hank you鈥, but unfortunately, she was no longer there. Yes, I was like John Travolta meme.

TELL A STORY OF HOW YOU GOT A SCAR
One day, when I was like nine years old, I was playing in the roof of our home with a child. There were some ironed-made roof tiles in storage at a low height, so, they were at the same height I was. My mother tried to warn me about the danger of falling down and cut me with those roof tiles, but of course, I didn鈥檛 pay attention to her. I was running crazily, and at a certain point, I didn鈥檛 pay attention to what was in front of me and I hit my head with the roof tiles. Then, I touched my face and looked at my hand, and I was bleeding. Indeed, I had cut my left eye-brow with the roof tiles, and thereafter I have a scar on my face.

The story of my scar:
When I was a child, I was 7 years old and I used to climb to a jocote tree, my grandma told me many times that it was dangerous, but I did not pay attention to the warnings. It was a common afternoon like others, I climbed to the tree, I played at the branches and suddenly I fell down over a barb wired fence, I got a wound in my stomach, and my mother had to carry me to the hospital. It was a very sad day and I got a big scar in my stomach. I never climbed a tree anymore. 馃槂

When I was a child, 8 or maybe 9 years old, I was learning to ride a bike. Great moment of your life to discover that coordination is not your thing. I hit parked cars, trees, dogs, neighbours鈥t wasn鈥檛 easy for me. It took me a bit longer than the average kid to learn how to ride a bike without ending my ride against a tree. I was determined to learn, so I spend every afternoon of that year riding around neighbourhood, until I made it 馃槃 . I finally learnt how to ride. This is the part of the story where I share an inspirational phrase about never giving up, but sadly once I stop hitting trees with my bike it seems I lost interest and I went back to play soccer with my friends.

When i was a child, i used to go out and play with my neighbour, who was a good friend of mine, as he was the same age as me; we also went to the same school, and used to play basketball on the same team. We used to hang out and play for hours, but, as time passed by, we somehow became distant, while still living next to each other, as we started hanging out separately with other friends, and stopped seeing each other. Ever since we moved out, we lost contact. I don鈥檛 remember having a personal conflict with him, besides the childish, inmature, and petty ones, that we simply left behind. I just hope he鈥檚 doing great.

I was always very curious about the origin of my name. My parents had told me a very magical realism story which i treasured so much I never asked for a 鈥渕ore realistic one鈥. Back in the 70麓s my father Freddy was a union leader in a airline company, so he and my mother, Mireya, could travel the world with discounted tickets. In 1978 they were in Paris, even thought my mom was already 9 months pregnant. So, when they were flying back to Caracas, I decided to be born, up in the air. The airplain麓s captain approach me, still in my mom麓s ne, to announce that if I decided to born between clouds I could travel for free all my life and choose any nationality by the time I turned 18. I didn麓t listen, sorry for my beforelife french, so when the plane landed an ambulance was waiting for us, and I was born in Caracas, Venezuela. Then my parents said, he won麓t be a Freddy but Jeanfreddy, almost french but 100% Venezuelan.

This is a short history when I was younger

  • Every day on Sunday I had something to do, it was an important task that required a prepared person鈥 (not is real guys, I鈥檓 being dramatic)
    I had to buy the things for breakfast, usually my father said 鈥淒arling, come on鈥 and I was going with him. My favorite part is that he always allowed me to buy and eat a cookie on the way to the bakery until home.

Prompt 1: When I was a child, I used to visit my grandparents during vacations. They lived five hours away in a beautiful farm with animals and food crops. I particularly remember the orange trees all over the farm. While I was there, I received a lot of attention from everyone because I was the cute little girl from the city, and my cousins were always kind to me. They helped me get fruits from the trees and took care of me. One time, when I returned from a vacation there, I opened my bag and, to my surprise, there was a TOAD! I was terrified because I was afraid of this animal, but for my cousins, it was a great joke that they laugh of until now.

When I was younger, I went to my father鈥檚 office to visit him. He had a ping pong table there, and I started playing with my brother. However, at one point, my brother got bored and stopped playing with me. Feeling determined, I decided to continue playing by myself, standing under the table. Unfortunately, the table suddenly fell, resulting in a three-inch scar on my face. Personally, I find it really cool, but not everyone shares the same opinion.

I was pretty nervous 'cause until that moment I knew that she was a University teacher and also a person who traveled a lot and I was just in my twenties. Eventually, the day arrived, I sent her the link to the meeting (I was going to meet the old lady I had called for months for the first time), and all of a sudden, she showed up on my screen with her camera open, and for my surprise, we share the same last name hahaha, -We are family- she said, what a coincidence. Then I met her husband and part of her family, now we have a nice friendship and my mother maintains communication with her weekly.

To my surprise, while I was reloading my guns, the rest of the people had wet the floor enough to make anyone slip, so when I was running out of the house ready to unleash my fury, I ended up slipping and hurting myself a lot. It was at that moment that I knew my legendary story had come to an end. 10 years later, I remember that catastrophic/amazing event every time I see the scar on my arm.

Prompt 1
Talk about a memory you have from your childhood

When I was a little boy at age of 7. I used to have very busy parents, my mother used to be a nurse, working the whole night, and my father a civil engineer working far away from home.

Since I passed alone almost all the time, I used to have two amazing friends Kevin and Jean (yes, like the pants haha). We always went together everywhere in the little town.

One day we went together to the park, ten minutes walking, when we arrived it started to rain heavy. Once raining ended, we run into the park, everything was wet, however it didn鈥檛 care because we thought we were soldiers in a war. Fighting with our guns, and more children came to play together. I got so funny that day.

Time later, my friends had to travel to Spain with their parents. I have never known anything about them since that moment.

Last year, I was with my family at New Year鈥檚 eve, when my cousin started singing a beautiful melody. The way he sang the long vocals was amazing and even made my uncle cried. However, while he was giving this amazing performance, I couldn鈥檛 help to notice that he was also crying. This made me believe that he was in great pain. But I was wrong, he was just living the moment with great excitement.

How I got a scar
In 24 july 2004 I got on my horse. Surprisingly, my horse passed an obstacle on the way and I throw off the balance. I fell over the rock and my sister fell over me (I had forgotten to tell you this part of history). Inmediatly, I heard a unpleasant sound, was my arm breaking, exactly, radio and cubit. Rapidly, I was carried to the hospital by my parents. The doctors took me some bone scan and they concluded that I required a surgery. They carried on the surgery on mi arm and they put orthopedic material in mi arm. Since 2004 I get a scar in my arm.

  -Prompt 1: When I was like 8 years old, I used to enjoy going to the park with some family friends, there were kids about my age, and it was so much fun! One day we stayed at the park late than the usual, we noticed that the all the people were gone and the sun as well, the doors were closed, and we started to get scary, and I was crying a lot, after 30 minutes a person started to scream kind of to get our attention, we went to him, and he opened the doors since he was the watchman, I still get mad with that man because I thought that I would stay the night at the park. 

-Prompt 2: I try to go every day to an indoor cycling class; I really love to go it helps me to get rid of all the stress of work and of the day. Once at the middle of the class from all the sudden this old man came to me and asked me for someone called 鈥淪elene鈥 I did not stop my bike and he wanted to give me a chocolate I just said no with my head, and he stared at me for one moment and the left, that is it and it was weird.

-Prompt 3: Believe it or not I don鈥檛 have any scars, of course I鈥檝e scratched or something before, but I guess that my skin is really good healing.

My first memory

Today I woke up after knowing I was having a dream, but I couldn麓t remember anything. I tried hard to remember but It was useless. After a few hours while I was working, I ate some chocolate donuts which suddendly made me remember what I was dreaming. I dreamed I was on a coffeshop with my grandmother in Germany waiting for the rain to stop before we walked together home.
After I rememberd this I started thinking and philophizing to realized that during the dream I never knew how I got into that coffeshop in the first place, and that happens with all dreams, you just appear and you accept reality as It is, you don麓t ask further questions, you just appear you do what you have to do and then just stop existing exactly as you came, out of the sudden.
This reasoning opened a new question for me, because life, when we were borned, It is exactly the same concept. When did I got here?! 驴Do I actually remember how I got into the world? How I was born? So I started an introspecting process which led me to my first memory.
My very first childhood memory. This was in my grandparents garden. It was a sunny day and I was on my diapers running barefoot, I remember the grass was wet and I can recall the smell, after that I ran to a uchuva bush and I took one out of Its cocoons, (uchuvas grow in cocoons) I opened It, took the uchuva out and smelled It.
I will always associate uchuva麓s smell with that very special moment and also to remember that uchuvas such as life are nothing but a beautifull dream.

(I appreciate feedback in order to improve my writing, thank you very much)

A combination of prompt 1 and 3:
When I was a child I was in my grandfathers house and my grandmother was playing with her with a red ball, at one point she threw the ball and when I tried to catch her I hit the wall very hard. The next thing I remember was waking up in the emergency room of the hospital, apparently I open my head from the hit and fall unconscious, from that accident I got a scar in my head, a funny fact is that the scar is similar to the one that Harry Potter have.

It was afternoon. I was swinging in a swing that my father has made for me with a piece of rope and a piece of wook. I used to swing everyday and when it was in the highest point i used to jump, but that afternoon I just sit down in my swing and I fell down, The rope hurt me al lot. I still have the scar-

This week i was in the gym, and suddenly a girl came and say 鈥淗i, would you give me your number鈥 , i give her my number, but i never respond the message, we have never talk before she did that, i dont know her and it is weird jsjs

Prompt 2 Talk about an unusual interaction you had with a stranger

How I found Rodin鈥檚 house.
This story happened to me a long time ago.
My mom had told me it was not a good idea for me to go to Paris without speaking the language because the French were very jealous about their own language but anyway, I went!
I think I never had any communication trouble at all during that trip because to the French I was a very unusual creature: at that time, I was only 16, I was Mexican and I could speak Spanish, English and German but not French. Perhaps most of the people I met took pity of me and that was the reason why they tried to communicate with me in any way they could.
One day, near to the Eiffel Tower I wanted to visit a museum nearby, so I arrived there, I paid my entrance, went in and at some point, it seemed like I was the only visitor at that moment, so I found myself almost alone in one gallery and when I say 鈥渁lmost鈥 it is because one of the guards was also there with me. He was a very old man who could not speak any other language than French, of course, but he was insisting on having a conversation with me. With 16 I did not know how to handle that kind of situations.
Do you remember the song from the Mouling Rouge? You know, Lady Marmalade, Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir? Well, I am pretty sure that was exactly what that creepy man would have loved to do to me.
After I had finished the tour inside the museum, I just wanted to go away from it as far and quick as possible, so I started walking to the opposite direction I came in. All of a sudden, I felt I was lost I could not place those streets on my map but,** to my surprise**, I was not the only tourist in that area. I let myself follow that crowd and so I had founded Rodin鈥檚 house!!! My favorite sculptor!!! Even though, it was not a part of my original visiting schedule!
Everything I saw there was so beautiful that I had to thank that creepy horny man for the previous experience, without it I would have missed that unforgettable place.

It was a sunny sunday afternoon, the sky was blue with three clouds in the distance, the blood was running along my legs and the smell of dirt and rust was all i could sense. From the distance I was able to distinguish my father, he had a worried look on his face. The result was as I expected, although I had fallen many times, at last I鈥檝e done it. I had just gained the ability to make a turns with my bike.
And that鈥檚 the story of how I got the scars on my knees when I was 10 years old, learning how to use my bike =)

One time when I was a child I start asking for a toy that I wanted so much for Christmas, it was a copy of an excavator, my parents always told me that since I was almost a toddler I was interested in construction things and that I keep told them that my dream was to become a constructor like Bob one day, so they can鈥檛 resist to my tears and they bought me one just to make me quiet, but they said they won鈥檛 allow me to have it till Christmas come, but I didn鈥檛 want to wait that long, so the next day I make a plan to stole it from the Christmas tree, I knowed my mom usually took a long time buying the weekly food for us, so I wait the moment she get out our house, so I could be alone for quite time, that was my opportunity so I stole the gift, I hide the whole package and expected to put it again a couple of hours before Christmas, so no one could notice my crime, after I opened it I start playing with it, but in my creative kid mind that thing didn鈥檛 was just a excavator it was an skateboard, so after I have that incredible idea I started to ride around the house like Tony Hawk all of a sudden I heard my mom open the principal door she was back earlier than expected so I try to run quickly to my room to hide it from her, but my nerves make me lose the balance and I fall, I hit hard my head but I try to stand up fast to search where the toy where and keep the plan going but I can鈥檛 found it, the next thing I remember is my mom screaming at me and some blood dropping form my forehead. The excavator were always inside my head literally so at last I was discovered with the toy in the mass, I still have that excavator and a little scar in my forehead.
