Reasons:

Reason for my horrible eyesight:
Actually alot of factors played a role in my bad eyesight. First of all, one of the factors is the hereditary thing. My mother and father both were born with average eyesights. In addition, when I was still young living in Oklahoma, I received a Nintendo for a present. I played the Duck Hunt and the original Mario game almost everyday. Only if I hadn't sat too close to the television would I have had a near 20/20 vision. To make matters worse, I had a strange habit of reading in the dark when I was attending elementary. There are probably more factors that had contributed, but I don't seem to remember.

This isn't really a reason, but I just wanted to share with the people out there about gifts that i wasted. I started the piano when I was about 4 and played all the way to about 5th grade. But, (stupid me) I decided that it was a waste of my time and I quit. [oh boy,do i regret that] I started the piano again last year and I think it's the most wonderful thing in the world, besides my beloved clarinet. Also when I was around 5, I started the violin, my mother told me that the teacher told me that I was a promising student. [whoa that sounded strange] However, one of my preschool friends accidentally pushed me off a steep slide. I severely broke my arm and I fell behind in the class. As a result, I was forced to quit.
When I was very young, all my relatives and close friends had told my parents that I was very, very bright. My flaw was that I loved to watch movies and eat popcorn. [I always needed popcorn when watching a movie] So eager was I to start the movie, that I always stared into the microwave oven. Back then, the microwave ovens didn't have the type of sheilding that they do today, sadly. As a result, I think I became a little bit, how should i phrase this? stupid? This is all a hypothesis that I would have been a lot more intelligent than I am today.
