Everyone has different events that are memorable and influential during our childhood. Some memories can be pleasant, while others can hurtful or negative. Memories are a large part of our lives. Without them, life would be meaningless. In my case, I have many experiences from my childhood that are unforgettable. As I was born in Nepal, I spent my early childhood there playing in nature. I had a carefree childhood playing video games, riding my bicycle, having fun with my buddy, Vijay, and walking my dog, Jake. After I got home from school, Vijay used to come to my house to play video games. Mario and Contra were the popular games during our time growing up. We used to play them a lot, but riding our bicycles was more fun than playing video games. We played video games for almost half an hour, then we used to take our bicycles for a ride and try learning some stunts.
When I was riding my bicycle, I thought I was Evel Knievel. The nurses in the hospital kept trying to convince me that I was not. I would visit them every week, blood soaked, after I would try death defying jumps over the creek by my house. Vijay and I would ride our bicycles to the creek. I would dare Vijay to jump, but I was usually the only one that tried. I would end up crashing into the rocks 15 feet below, ending up battered, bloody and bruised.
I would also visit the nurses after walking my dog, Jake. I learned that walking Jake was a very bad idea. Jake decided to drag me full speed, face first, into the concrete the entire length of my block. The only thing that stopped him was wrapping me around a telephone pole.

Of all the Causes which conspire to blind
Man's erring Judgment, and misguide the Mind,
What the weak Head with strongest Byass rules,
Is Pride, the never-failing Vice of Fools.
Whatever Nature has in Worth deny'd,
She gives in large Recruits of needful Pride;
For as in Bodies, thus in Souls, we find
What wants in Blood and Spirits, swell'd with Wind;
Pride, where Wit fails, steps in to our Defence,
And fills up all the mighty Void of Sense!
If once right Reason drives that Cloud away,
Truth breaks upon us with resistless Day;
Trust not your self; but your Defects to know,
Make use of ev'ry Friend--and ev'ry Foe.
