The Life of Sydney Gage
me (your five year old self)
This is me as a baby(around 1 year old). I am wearing green pjs in this photo as you can see. I am also sleeping.
This is me as a toddler(around 3-4 years old). In this image my hair is very crazy and I look somewhat like a lion.
This is me at around the age of 5. I am wearing quite the colorful outfit and for some reason I'm riding a bike indoors. I'm not too sure what I was doing in this image as there is a lot going on.
Memories from my childhood
This is the toy that i brought into class from my childhood. My grandmother gave this to my sister and then my sister gave it to me. This toy is of significance to me due to the fact that my grandma gave it to me sister and then to me so I am connected to both of them in a sense.
This is a stuffed dog that I have had since I was about seven years old. My sister gave it to me after she had grown out of it but I still have it now resting on my bed. This is meaningful to me because I have had it for so long and the fact that it was given to me by someone I am very close to and miss extremely.
This is a buddha that my grandma owned before she passes away. My family has kept it ever since and it always reminds us of her.
This is a photo from my first trip to visit my sister in college after the divorce and not seeing her for a few months. Sam, my sister, and I are very close and this trip to see her meant a lot to me especially during the time being.
This is a picture of my taliet from my Bat Mitzvah. I was twelve years old when I had my bat mitzvah. This day was a memorable one for me and my family. My bat mitzvah was held in San Diego due to the fact that I was living there at the time.
Meeting my Best Friend
This is my dog Roxy. I got her when I moved to San Diego at the age of about eleven or twelve. I had other dogs before but none that I took as much responsibility for. Getting Roxy taught me how to care for and take responsibility for her. She is my favorite dog and always makes me smile to this day.
Meeting my Best Friend
Poetic Justice by User 719926700
"I'm nobody, who are you?"
"One of my best friends"
These quotes make me feel happy and that I have a good group of people that surround me. I do feel as if these quotes are true because when thinking about it I try and live up to those quotes in my everyday life.
making someone think about who they are
Am I any of those things?
I try and live everyday as myself and not change for people
staying true and real everyday
I am sixteen now. The age I am now is extremely different than from when I was five. Several things have changed, for the good and the bad. Life has grown and become more eye opening in the sense that my future awaits me. As my life has grown stronger, so have I. I have had harsh experiences that made me more mature and wiser due to them. These experiences will shape your life and you may see the bad times as never ending but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The world isn't as happy and magical as it is for you now. You will soon see the dark side of the world, but don't let that stop you from being the happy person you are. Keep in mind that family and friends will always matter and love you as you will love them no matter the circumstance. Goals and values will change but make sure to stay true to your personality and happy aura. You will figure out the path of life and grow up gracefully.
