A thing i can remeber about my childhood is that I would go and stay at a freinds house and we would go out into the woods with hatchets, saws, shovels, and other tools and we would take our time cleaning out a good sized area in the woods and we started to form a fort. We had gotten decently far in the production of it when it started to get to cold for us to be out there. So we left it alone for the winter and spring. And when we came back all the stuff we had cleared out would have grown back. So we started it agin that summer but with less enthusiasm. Eventualy we quit trying and gave up.
Also another thing from my childhood would be that me and the same freind would spend the whole summer together playing the playstation. He would come over everyday and we would play ether spyro, or twisted metal 2. We alot more fun playing twisted metal since it was a two player co op game. We eventually beat it and got bored. One of the only problems with that summer would be that we spent to much time together so we eventually started to get into fights and for a long while he didnt come over. I dont remember how that ended.
Except for those two things I cant remember much from before 9th grade. Most of it I chose to forget to many of my old memorys reminded me of my dad or my uncle. When i was 9 years old my dad was diagnosed with Melenoma (skin cancer). During the year i turned 10 was when it started getting worse. My dad had to head to Pittsburge, Pennsylvania for advanced Chemotherapy. Me and my sister had to head to different friends houses during the weeks that my parents were gone.
Everytime that my dad came back from those Chemotherapy sessons he always seemed weaker from it. Well after a couple of months the docters told us that the cancer was recedding and that he was getting better. Soon after this which would be sometime in the middle of november my dad died in his sleep. I was the last one to be woken up and told about this.
See some people would look at this and tell me so what or suck it up. But for me this was a horrible time in my life. My dad was one of my best friend. He introduced me to video games. We would go fishing in the summer, and ride on snowmobiles in winter.
This is the biggest thing i can remember about my childhood.
