My Childhood

When I was a child I was so spoiled that every time, when I wanted to obtain something I could get it easily. For example, every time when my parents have had to go shopping, they would have to take me with them, and the reason is because, there was nobody else in the house who could watch after me. The reason they could not refuse my demand was that they did not want my nasty crying face with the high voice. This was the only perfect way that worked for my parents. This is the only funny story of my childhood that I remember every time, when I see other kids crying in the stores.

Its name means ''new day'' in Farsi because to ancient Persians it marked the first day of the New Year.

Exciting Camping Experience

Last summer, I was in NGO program. I went camping with my friends and teachers in Missoula. We were camping about three days. There were peaple from different countries, from Japan, Chine and other countries. We played all night. We didn't sleep at night. And also we went to lakes. We swam every afternoon. At night we went back to our camp. Our teachers always told us don't play at night. They told that there a lot of bears around. They told us this so we didn't sleep at night, and they wanted to scare us. Amazingly, it wasn't really scary. It was the most exciting experience I have ever had. And I didn't see the bear.
