The moment I quit my first job.
Either my birth or my death, I don't/won't remember either but both are the greatest moments a person will have
Waking up not alone for the first time.
My life is all akward moments. All I can say is it would be one second of silence, that seems like forever.
A perfect moment in my life? Walking down the street in Chicago, passing a guy playing the tuba, only to realize it was 'killing me softly' that he was performing...ON THE TUBA!?!?!
Definitely the moment I got my acceptance letter from college last fall- simply amazing.
Anytime I smile. It's a great smile
One perfect moment is hard to pick... I am a great believer in small moments and memories and feelings... I guess a couple of the top ones are: the *pop* fizzz of a bottle of bubbly opening when you know you deserve it... (or even if you don't) the moment on waking when you are snuggled under the covers of your warm bed and know you don't have to get up yet.... but if I had to pick just one... then it's my first ever road trip, through the South Island of New Zealand, just after getting my driver's license and buying my first car - awesome.
My perfect life moment happened only a couple months ago. I spent the semester travelling through Northern India with some other students. We stayed in an orphanage for 2 weeks and were encouraged to engage the children in English, so a friend and myself decided to put on a musical. We made up a fun show based on the Mario Brothers which incorporated easy American songs. The show was eventually performed in front of the entire school that the children attended. It was a huge success and I realized just how much I had come to care for these kids in only 2 weeks. But just as the kids were finishing their bow, the woman in charge of the orphanage declared that the directors (me and my friend) were now going to perform a song. We didn't know what she was talking about and my friend promptly ran out of the room leaving me alone. I had no idea what to sing. I picked a song from the Broadway show Wicked that I had just performed for my Grandmother's 80th birthday: For Good. I only chose it in the moment because I knew all the words, but as I sang, I realized just how pertinent the words were:" it well may be, that we may never meet again in this lifetime, so let me say before we part. so much of me is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart." it was wonderful
meeting my mother for the first time when i was 12 years old.
The last hug I ever recieved from my friend Kristin.
When my wife finally said “I do”. It only took me 11 years to nail her down.
one perfect moment in my life is when me and my dads side of the family were all sitting around a camp fire over the summer. We all sit around talk and tell jokes. (and of course eat smores)
getting asked out
When I was 13 years old, and I was in the hospital room while she was about to give birth to my beautiful baby sister, and as I held her hand, her faced turned from a pale white to an angry red...I'd never seen someone's face turn colors so rapidly before, it scared and astonished me. It was awesome.
Ah, tough one. Toss up between the moment I met my girlfriend Dominique or the moment I traded one red paperclip for a pen shaped like a fish.
Something funny, probably. Laughing with people I love is always a perfect moment.
the moment my daughter was born.
The most perfect moment in my life was when I was 10. I was a military brat living in Norway and I discovered Gummi Candy, when I went on a walk with some friends to a corner market. it was getting dark, the street lamps turned on an we came out of the store with a pound of Gummi Candies. It was such a beautiful night and we walked all the way home with a smile on our faces, even though some of the Gummies were pretty sour -- but good. I've been addicted ever since. I'm still a child at heart.
