Passing IELTS (without hard work)

This is the second post of  My Top Three Stories Of Success: "How I got the 7.0 points in IELTS without hard work".

I've never been a hard worker. Really. No, you won't understand it, until you know me, but I'll make you sure that I'm no way better than you.

I started learning English from the day I started going to school when I was 5. That time I wasn't caring about anything like all the children. Children are just curious about everything. Every child is a fresh body, a little sleepy body. We don't remember most of our childhood, but what we remember are the most influential ones. The day you cried when someone hurt you was as influential as the day you were born. The day you went on traveling with your family and met new friends was of great importance. Little things went big. The same way my father used to bring magazines like Newsweek, TIME every month form his job place. I hardly understood a word of these magazines, but I liked looking at the images in it. The cartoons, the people, the face of Bill Clinton or Bill Gates, newly-released game images and everything that could get attention of a child. When I saw an interesting picture with a sentence or phrase below, I looked for the words in the dictionary. It was not so amusing, but as soon as I got the meaning, I was satisfied. I didn't like the process, but the feeling of success was pleasurable. Little success. No one made me read it, no one ever told me to read it, I just liked it.

Guitar Story

This is the first part of my "Top Success Stories".

Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you'll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you're gonna be rewarded.
- Jimi Hendrix

I started playing guitar when I was 13. I was playing piano before, only with my right hand not able to play with both simultaneously, but I liked it. But guitar has always been in front of my eyes all my childhood, but I never actually tried to learn it. One day I decided to play it. According to my good ear I tried to play a song that was very easy. I found out that it had some similarity with piano. At least it is the same MUSIC with 7 notes. That way I learned that song completely in a week.
