Past Simple Boy

I lived in Granada when I was young

I didn't study much, but I was lucky and passed my exams

Did your parents study when they were young?



Hello everybody! My name is Past Simple Boy because I am very nostalgic and I always talk about the past.This is an old picture of me. I was eighteen in this picture. It was thirteen years ago.

I studied at University at that time. I lived with my friends Paco and Javi in a big and old flat. We didn't study much and we enjoyed our life. Every weekend we went to the disco and met new girls. I remember I had a girlfriend called Margarita.

I finished my studies in 1995. A year later I started to work as a Language teacher  in a Secondary school. Life is not too bad, but those days were fantastic!

Do you know about your parents' life when they were young?
