A Memorable Date


Write here about a memorable date or meeting someone.

My First Date
My first date was with the boy who went to the same school as me. We were the same age, but we went to different classes. He was the friend of my best friend. He was sympathetic, but little imaginary. So I thought when we first met, and what he thought about me, he'll find out later. But such thinking is typical of that year. The first three months we have seen the occasional breaks in the school. But this time he would give a nice comment or a compliment. Sometimes I noticed his puzzled look, but sometimes winked when he left.

And I felt sympathy for him because he was fun, but also willing to help others when they needed.
Then one day I was suddenly asked if I wanted to go to the movies with him. Even though I wanted I was surprised, but of course I accepted the invitation.
At that moment I was happy, but then I pondered what to wear, what to talk with him. We all want to leave a good first impression. But everything was much easier than I thought. We watched interesting adventure movie, and a lot of talking and laughing. That it was more beautiful evening. M. was fun, good boy, intelligent, popular in society, friendly.
We were together two years and then he moved to another city. Then he called me, came, but it eventually became less often. At the end we stayed friends. And he is now married and lives in the same city. This was my first date.

Dear Readers,
Today I want to share with you the story about my first date. I was in grade six when I had my first date. I remember it perfectly. There was a girl named SP. She was two years older than me. We were in the same classroom. I was the one who pursued that relationship. It was a Monday morning. I used to come to school early. She arrived a few minutes after I arrived. She found me standing in the middle of the classroom doorway. I did not want to let her in the classroom. I asked her to pay me first before she could pass through. She gave me candies, money, a nice pencil, and I still refused. She said "Seismic, what else can I give to you to let me pass ?!" She was so polite, while I answered her with a smile on my baby face. I said, "I just want a kiss." She said, "A kiss, a kiss for you ? Where ?" I bent down to receive my kiss and she kissed me on the jaw. It was so sweet, then she pushed me aside to pass through the door.
From that time on, I started to spoil her with love notes on pieces of paper during the class, flowers, and candies. We did our homework together because I was brilliant in class. I was always on top. One day after class, I invited her to the movies with me and she accepted. I let her choose the movie on her own. I didn't want that movie at all, but it was more important for me to be alone with her and be her companion. During the movie, suddenly she felt cold. I asked her to come closer shyly, and sofly she came. Can you imagine how I felt? We explained to each other our love, our feelings, and I asked her for a real kiss. We kissed for the rest of the movie. We became true lovers. Our relationship was good.
Three years after, she had a response from the American Embassy for her permanent residence. We spoke for a couple of years and after that we lost contact.

Hi Seismic,
What a wonderful story!
My suggestion is to try to make your sentences shorter. It will be easier to make the grammar correct with shorter sentences. This is also more in the "North American Style" of writing.

My First Date with Ms. Keen
When I started my first day in Level 3, I met her. The first day was very hard because she has a different accent and a different style of teaching from my last teacher. At first, I was confused, but after a couple of weeks, my feeling changed a lot because I knew I could learn in a different way. I want to say thank you to her because when I had a difficult time, and came to her class every day, she tried to make me feel better. I have a lot of respect for her. She certainly knows how to motivate her class. She gave her students more confidence for doing their best, in speaking, in writing, and in finding a job. She is one-of-a-kind and I have a good friend.
- Nice, 21 Nov 2011

Wow, Nice. How nice !
Thank you. A teacher needs to know if she is helping the students learn or not.
I am really proud of you finding work and practicing your English outside the classroom. It is making a big difference. Keep up the good work !

Honeymoon Date
After marriage, my first date was with my husband. We went to Shimla. Shimla is a hill station. We stayed over there four days. In Shimla, we saw new places everyday and we took photographs. Sometimes we ate outside, and sometimes we ate inside. Everyday we ate different food. One day we went to the market. At the market I bought some jewelry, and one purse. In Shimla we really enjoyed ourselves. I miss Shimla so much.

Big Baked Potato Date
I do have memories of some dates:
Once a very long time ago, a generous and sweet young man took me out to a very nice restaurant for a 'dinner date' ... when the meal arrived, my eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw that the baked potato was as big as my shoe ! I didn't think I could eat the whole thing, and I didn't. The meal was delicious, but the servings were humongous !

Do you like David?

Yes I do like David because he aspires to a goal. David knows what he does. Even though he lied without thinking about the consequences, I accept it because I knew from the beginning that he wanted to go to New York to try to find members of his family, maybe his father. I know all he has done are not on his own, for once David had a momentary pang of guilty conscience and I respect that because some people do things worse than David with no notion.
My Dear Readers let's see what will happen in the future with David's story.
To be continued...
(Laugh jijijiii Seismic!!!)

Yes, who knows what adventure lies ahead for David in New York!
Stay tuned ...

David*s story ( part 3)

When David came to town, all seemed strange to him, all the bustle. David stood and watched everything around him. Then he asked passer-by where the feed mill was, David went there and entered in the small office where was a man who brazenly asked what he seeks. When David explained to looking for work he told him to go home to wash because he looked messy. David found a small hotel and sneaked in there because he had no money. Then he found a wc with a sink and washed, then he charged his shirt and pants and returned back to the feed mill. The man observed that David returned quickly and looked better.
David was hired to work 6 days for 6 dollars and every day to work nine hours. David decided it was best to go back to the hotel and live there. David got a room and 1 meal a day for 3 dollars a week and cleaned the bar after closing at 11 p.m. David became a working man. David belived he would succeed in life.

Hi Nice,
Good work. Check my suggestions for making your writing better.
Things to practice: past tense, prepositions, capitalization, vowel sounds (Thompson colour chart)
Try to use "spell check" in WORD first.

David 's Story (part1 & 2)

David ran away from the farm. He considered asking Lillian to go with him. Then he decided not to tell her his plans because it would be too risky. David packed his few belongings. He took a loaf of freshly baked bread & a pot of jam. He started his journey. He walked quietly in the dark night. When he passed several miles from the village, he ate some bread, had a rest, and then thought & worried about Lillian how sad & lonely she would be.
He hitchhiked from the old truck driver then he told the truckdriver that he needed a labouring job any place in order to earn money to get him to Ottawa. The driver suggested that he hang around the next town & look for work . There was a feed mill, a factory, a diary and a lumber yard.
I think David will get a job and will be succcessful.

Hi Zesty,
Some things to think about. Make your sentences shorter and simpler. This is called the "North American Style" of writing.
Also it is easier to correct the grammar yourself.
Keep up the great work !
