2: Dedication: For my family and all of those who have supported me throughout my 13 years of life.
3: Exposition My life started out on February 2nd, 1998 at Harrisburg Hospital at 2 A.M. | My parents were filled with joy the first time they took me back to our house. We lived as a happy family, doing all of the things new parents do with their young child. I lived out a happy early life.
4: Setting Setting is the time and the place of a particular story. I have had a similar setting for the majority or my life. My main setting is at a familiar place by the name of 3111 Dickinson Avenue, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. This is my home for which I have lived for nearly 14 years. Here I live in peace going to school at Camp Hill. Residing in this home along with myself is my family. This residence has proved to be a place for learning, fun, and hanging out. This location has taken a huge role in my life story. Spending Summer's on the trampoline and climbing trees on the cool spring mornings. This setting has always been a calm and joyful one full of cheer. Camp Hill will hopefully stay as my setting for the remainder of my childhood and teenage years. This is my setting, this is Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.
6: Flat Character The round character in my life is my Aunt Dottie. She was still alive only until I was about 4 or 5. She is actually just a close friend but she was always giving me presents as a young child. She would always babysit me as a toddler and since I was so young I never really had a chance to get to know her well. All that I know is that she was a pleasant and very loving and sharing person. She is brought up at an occasional family get together about her loving and caring heart, but besides that she is rarely ever mentioned. All I remember of her is her loving and joyful spirit and I believe that attitude rubbed off on everyone that she knew.
7: Round Character The round character in my life without a doubt is my brother Joshua. He has been changing since the minute that he came into this world. The first time I saw him come home from the hospital I was about 2 years old. He was always nagging to be around me and was always needing attention for himself. As we began to get older he was the reason that I was unable to go to preschool. He was always saying that he wanted me to stay home and play with him. This is why I am lacking the necessary social skills that an 8th grader should have, but I love him and he will be always changing and will be there for me whenever I need him to be around. My brother is a great person who puts joy and happiness into the hearts of everyone that he meets, weather it is by humor or his cunning personality he is a great kid and I am proud to say that he is my brother. | J
8: Theme There are many different themes that I have in my life. The one that I have to say has changed my life the most though is my own personal quote, this quote is, "Suck it up, and just deal with it." In short this quote means man up and move past all of the troubles that are going on in your life, because if you don't you they will be with you and mess up all that happens after those incidents. This self manufactured quote has played a huge role in my life thus far. There have been many incidents a that could have potentially held me back so far, but whenever there is something bad that happens I just tell myself suck it up, and just deal with it. Then I move on and focus on the future and forget about the past. FOr the past 3 or 4 years this has been my motto and it will continue to be my motto until the day that I die and I hope that others feel the same way and take on this motto also.
10: External Conflict In my life I have encountered many different external conflicts. Some of my most common one though are the ongoing conflicts between me and my two brothers Joshua and Luke. EVeryday there is a disagreement over the most pointless of topics weather it be who gets the last piece of food of who gets the most video gaming time. No matter what it is there is always something that we three brothers can find something to go into a disagreement about. Every time that there is a disagreement the mediator in our fight is always our mom. She is always there to come up with a great compromise that always helps both sides get just exactly what they want. This is very helpful and quickly resolves the conflict.
