A Small Apartment Full of Life and Significant Memories

About a year later, after an unsuccessful attempt, he liquidated and sold the business, and started searching for a job. This made us shift to the small two-bedroom apartment. At that time, I knew very little about my parents’ financial struggle. When we moved to the new apartment, I came to understand why my father searched for a new job and stopped doing his own business. One day as I stood at the front door, and looked around the apartment I realized that room doors, the bathroom, and the kitchen were not far from the entrance door.

I was irritated and mad at my parents for moving to a small apartment. During dinnertime, my father was frequently absent because of long working hours. I frequently complained about the food, but my mother did not answer. At that time, my mother was busy serving fish to my brother and younger sister and barely had fish for her own. One week before Korean Thanksgiving Day, my mother bought me a jacket, which looked old fashioned and cheap. I replied by telling her that I could not wear the hideous and ugly jacket because my friends would tease me.

My mother replied by urging me to wear it that year since the weather was getting cold each day and I was at risk of getting a cold. Moreover, she promised to buy me a better jacket the following year. At school, my friends did not comment about the jacket, but I felt so reprehensible and intimidated. After we shifted to the small apartment, I stopped bringing in my friends to the small apartment. One day a friend of mine requested to visit my new apartment which I declined by finding an excuse since she was from a rich family.

Moreover, her father was a rich and successful businessperson. When I arrived at their big house, I was fascinated by how big and luxurious it looked. The house contained  expensive furniture with huge Italy leather sofa set in the living room. In addition, there was a long dining table and extra chairs in the kitchen. While many people usually place a piano in their living room to show off, my new friend had one in her room, which shows that she was never fancied pianos.

Besides, she had many shoes, which she offered me to take home. My new friend informed me that her mother went to play golf frequently, and her father rarely came home since he was always busy.
