This topic lets you choose from a varied range of memories. Choose one and write at least a page about how you felt on that occasion. Aim for being specific, not abstract. Think about what you observed, what the surroundings were, what other people were there and describe these things.
Here are some topics to choose from (or come up with your own):
- 1st day of school
- 1st job
- 1st kiss
- 1st time driving a car
- 1st time living alone
- 1st child
