Would my life make a good novel?
I was born in London. My father was Japanese and my mother a quarter English, a quarter Irish and half English. Both my parents were members of two large companies and my father forced to move around a fair bit. While my mother went around Europe. As a result, I was moved around the UK for the majority of my education. I was fat, Asian and nerdy. I could speak three languages by the time I started school and I was constantly bullied. I only really had one friend, and he got me playing football. This stopped me being bullied and I became part of a team. Liked and popular. However, Ryan was hit by a car going home one day. I never played football again. My mother left to work in Spain just as I finished primary school. She missed her family and her and my father had begun fighting. They attempted to maintain a distance relationship. It didn't really work out. My father got more violent. And began hitting me when I did something wrong, didn't work on my instrument. I felt constantly pressured by him. I was terrified of every time we got marks back or every parents evening. I always got good marks, but anything below A felt like failure, and indeed, was considered 'laziness'. My father stopped talking to me in English. Insisting on Japanese. As I entered secondary school, our relationship totally broke down. I'd spend hours alone in my room and we never spoke. When I tried to talk to him at the dinner table he'd simply grunt over his newspaper. We moved around a lot. I was even in boarding school for a while, but that failed, too. I became anorexic as even my father was calling me fat. uI hated PE, I ate too much. I only got out of it when I freaked out at the doctors when I saw my weight. I took all my GCSEs early. As it soon became apparent we were moving again. And not just anywhere. Japan. I cleared them all easily, even Japanese. Scoring seven A and 7 A*. And then we moved. At first we were in Shinjuku. As my father wanted to start a business there. I went to an international school in Tokyo and was very good friends with a Spanish boy, who left shortly before I did. We moved further out of Tokyo, by my grandparents while my father attempted to by a house and an office block close by. I went to a small local school. My grades slipped enormously as my level of Japanese was far too low for get the high grades. My father began hitting me more and more. I began avoiding home, staying at my grandparents house. My grandmother died, just of old age. I had a small breakdown and couldn't face school, my father and sat with my grandfather watching television all day. I went back in after being hit again. I actually lost a tooth that time. That nightmare ended and we moved back to shinjuku and then back to England as my father, profiting from his business, set up a similar one in London. I was back just in time for 6th form. I got in late to a grammar school. I finished that well and was allowed my choice of university with my A level results. My father chose Oxford. Not somewhere I actually wanted to go. I was spoilt. I had everything paid for. Even a car, my own flat. But I couldn't take everything. Grandfather died. Broke my heart. I got a job when I wasn't allowed and then broke down and fucked off. Ended up in Italy. Fell in love with the place. i stayed for ages. I still got money from my father, who had briefly stopped giving my money and I think i ended up on the missing persons list. However, I called my grandfather who must have explain the situation, because I still continued to get money. Then a girlfriend. Well, fuck. She died too. Another breakdown. I set off around Europe. . I had so many adventures. My car and I crossed so many borders. Then, snap. No more money. Stuck in Poland. Sold car for scrap. I was homeless. In winter. I ended up in hospital. car money gone. No form of communication, doing odd jobs and hitchhiking. I ended up in Spain; on my mother's doorstep. She took me in. University again. I felt better. Kept in contact with everyone. Enjoyed my time of being free. Finished university. Off to be a teacher. Joined in Spain, taught English, moved to England, taught English. Mother died of cancer. Depression. Traveling again. Father taught wind of me coming back. I caused the car crash he was in. He died in front of me. My last words were "I hate you." Moved into his flat. Depression. Watched TV all day. Didn't go outside for a year. I somehow, with the help of some man sold off his businesses. Made profit. One day I realised I was doing nothing with my life. Saw a therapist. Rented off all his property again. Moved into the house. Got a job. Got a better job, teaching. Found someone. So perfect. So hilariously perfect, Got married. Grandparents moved in. And now I have a son! I just feel I'm doing nothing with my life again. I wondered, is it a good tale? Would it be good to write? People have told me it would, as a therapy, too. I regret everything I've done. And don't simultaneously. I'm sorry it's so long. It's just... A long winded very unbelievable tale. Sorry for the terrible grammar, I've typed this all from my tablet. But I'd appreciate some feedback.
