There are many occurrences in life that shape you into the person you are today, a wiser more experienced person. Many people can actually recall the exact moment in their life which was forever changed by a single event or chain of events. When that event happens it becomes an unforgettable memory for you and impacts you and your decisions for the rest of your life. The event that forever changed me and was most significant to me was when my best friend dropped out of high school, and was unable to graduate with me along with the rest of the class of 2010. Life seems to take many twists and turns that somehow mesh into each other to form a chaotic knot of happenings. I’ve known him for almost 8 years now, and we were the best of friends. He was more of like a brother to me. We would do everything together, walk to school in the morning, go to class together, eat lunch together, and walk home together. Out of the two of us, he was the more athletic one and I would be the scholar so we complimented each other well. I would help him with school work and he would help me with basketball after school. What I admired most about him is that he is really independent because he’s pretty much been on his own his whole life. He is the youngest in his family of five, and his sisters and brothers are old enough to move out and living on their own. His parents own a restaurant so they work from five to six in the morning till twelve at night, so he had no choice but to learn and be independent on his own. Although he knows that he is slow in school, he still challenged himself and takes honors and AP classes with me. I would help and assist him as much as I could so that he doesn’t fall behind. He did fine his freshman year of high school, but sophomore year was when things went downhill. His parents left for Vietnam for 3 months, and he was really on his own
