I remember when my parents, siblings, and I used to go on road trips. I remember how long it took to reach our destination. I remember when we went on cruises every few years.  I remember when my little cousins were born. I remember I saw them the day of or the day after they were born. I remember when I left my first elementary school after 2nd grade. I remember how sad I was about leaving that school. I remember how much trouble I used to get into at my second elementary school/middle school. I remember when I went to Peru for my 8th grade trip in middle school. I remember when I went on a cruise for my 16th birthday.

I don’t remember when I got into a car accident in Jamaica. I don’t remember how old I was at the time. I don’t remember when I lived in Queens with both of my parents.
