To tune in I made a mind map to show all the possibilities that could show “the life I live is determines by my family’s past experiences”. I decided that the best way to do that is by making a family tree.
To make a family tree I was going to find mu family genealogy book if I it was not in storage but if it is I am going to send emails to all of my grandparents and great grandparents. I will ask them if they can tell me the names date of birth of their mom, dads, grand, parents and great grandparents. Once I had sent all of the emails I realized it would not show my families past experiences and decisions. So I thought about lots of big things in my life for example sports, school and being overseas.
I asked my mom why did we come overseas she said because her mom/ my grandma always wanted to travel but could not because she had a lot of kid and back then traveling was not as popular. So my grandma all way told my mom that when she would get older my mom was going to travel. This is how my family moved to Hong Kong.
Sorting out my information was not very hard because all that I needed to do was decide what is relevant and what is irrelevant. Fore example all of the people that I asked tolled me about what college they went to and what there job is, but I did not need any of that in formation so I got rid of it.
I think initially only making a family tree was a big mistake and next time I need to make sure that I answer my question directly.
