The Sculptor of Life After reading The Open Boat and reflecting back on my life I realized that I am who I am mostly because of the environment I grew up in Right when I was able to run and jump I followed my older brother everywhere he went most of the time unwanted However the time I spent with my brother and his friends truly molded my character into part of who I am today Fishing playing hockey and just chilling with these older people I think enabled me to mature much faster than kids my age The most I got out of this period of my life tailing and annoying my brother is ironically not what to do but what not to do Encountering alcohol and drugs at such a young age actually strengthened my abstinence and self-restraint from them Although my brother really was a good role model for he did not drink either watching his friends smoke and drink really disgusted me Therefore every time I step into an environment with drugs and alcohol I either leave or try to avoid it as much as possible Furthermore I think my social mindset opened up when I spent two years living in Korea Living in Korea enabled me to not only experience the Korean culture but also respect it Now I talk to my parents in Korean and I am thinking about enrolling in a Korean school class Moreover before I left to Korea I never really hung out with an all Asian crowd but when I came back from Korea and here to Martin High School I found myself congregating with both the Asian clique as well as the White clique However sometimes I wish that the two groups would combine into one so I do not have to constantly choose between one and the other Many times I find myself trying to decide if I should eat lunch with one
