How was your break and what did you do?
I was basically sick all break. I had gotten sick the first day of the break so really couldn't do much. Plus my break was pretty depressing so it was not a 100% fun. I had baby sat my nephew though which is always fun since he lives in San Antonio. He cheered me up and had fun playing with him. My sister and her boyfriend came over for Christmas at my grandma's house which was also time to get things out of my head. I'm sad break is over but happy for a new year and hopefully it turns out right.
What is the most trouble you have ever given your parents? What is the most enjoyment you have ever given them?
The most trouble I ever given my parents is being in Quinces or sweet 16. It started off as fun but than just got out of hand and too much for me to do. Spending over $100 for a dress I would only be wearing one night. Having to go to dance practices almost every other day was too much. The most enjoyment I've given my parents is just spending my time with them whether I'm sick or busy with other things . I always make a effort to be with them and if there's a Spurs game that night, watch the game with them.
What dream can you conceive? Can you believe it? Can you achieve it?
The dream I would conceive is to pass Chemistry this last semester. I barely pass that class with a 75, but would like to pass with a higher grade. I believe I can with the right mind set and right attitude I can. I can achieve by going to the teacher class when I need the extra help or have missed that class. I can ask for extra credit assignments or see what I can do to make my grade higher. I can also move seats from where I sit. Instead of being by people who talk so much and don't want to work or help out I would be able to move spots just to get back in track.
What are you doing for the 3 day weekend?
I plan on the just cleaning up room basically. I was suppose to have a 5 day weekend but not anymore. I was suppose to go to a basketball game Thursday to see the Spurs play against the Lakers but my sister gave my ticket to her boyfriend's cousin:( Which made me very upset. So if i was to go I would have spent Thursday and Friday in SA with my sister, her boyfriend, and my nephew. I guess the good part is though is that I will begin working! I will just be cleaning offices but get good pay. Plus I'll be sleeping in too.
How do you decide if you like someone? How do you show interest in them?
I decide by how their personality is. If their going to be rude or any negative vibe around me than I won't be nice to them back or even talk to them. If the person I'm talking to is really fun or nice in a way, I will make a way to get to know the person more or hang out with them. I show my interest in them by getting to know what they like to do or what interest them in their own way. I'll see if they wanna go hang out during lunch or own the weekends.
Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?
I have passed on a kindness when I participated on the Angel Tree give this pass year. I never thought I would do that but I did! It was on behalf of me and my BF who isn't here anymore but we always talked about how much we loved kids. The day i got the angel from the tree I really didn't know how it will work but I had a teacher tell me. The day the angel gift was due, everything for set and ready to go. I even included a little note in there for the child. After doing this i felt really happy to have done this. To know I made a child's Christmas something special to them and for me to know I completed a task my BF had talked about. I can't wait to do it again when the time comes for that and will always be looking towards making a child's day.
Who is your biggest fan?
My biggest fan would have to my mom. She has always been there for me and my dad but my mom makes the time to be with me or support me. She was at all the basketball games I've had in middle school. Away games and even showed up to at least 1st half of the games when she had night classes to attend. She supported me in sports, life decisions, relationships, and etc. Were always together no matter what and tend to fight but make up in days or weeks. She buys me stuff when i need something or just when she has a little extra cash. I don't know how my life will be without her.
What do you love most about yourself? What do others love about you?
What I love about myself is how outgoing I am. I'm always finding a way to help others if they need help at school or just general advice. I'm always kind in way and just really like to be happy to others and have that positive vibe to others. My friends and family love how i am always there to help others and how outgoing I really am. I'm always helping people out even during my own time.
Which of your senses is the most important to you? What would you do without it?
The one most important sense to me would have to be my hearing. I really don't know what I would do without it. So like if I was blind I could still hear whats going around around me in the background. Everything I hear is rather funny or really exciting. Without my hearing everything would just boring to me. Say i can see well I wouldn't know what the people around me are saying. How would know if its important news for me to hear or what people are trying to tell me.
How do you see yourself? How do you think others see you?
I see myself as a strong, outgoing, funny person. I'm always going out of my way to help my friends or family members. Even when I'm sick or just don't want to do anything, I'm there to help. I'm strong because I've gone through so much and still dealing with something that has taken over my life. For me to know why did it ever happen or why me, I'm still here. My friends and family see me as a person who's gone through so much and they are surprise that I manage to still overcome the obstacles. Just day by day I don't take my life for granted. I too am surprised on how I am.
Do you treat people as they are, or as they ought to be?
I treat people the way the way to be treated. If it's by the looks that's wrong. If people want be rude to me or just talk about me without even knowing me that's wrong of them. I want to get to know the person before saying what I ought have to say or do actions. Nowadays people just like to talk and talk and just bring down people. They should just treat people right and nice because they don't know what the other person is going through or what they been through.
How were you taught to tell the truth?
I was taught to tell the truth from my parents but mostly by my dad. My family is religious and believe in a God. We talk about the bible and what's right and wrong. There are times were the truth just can get out so lies come out. I have to say lies can help out but not all the time. The saying "The truth will set you free." really does help out in situations.
Have your parents ever practiced "long division" on you and your friends?
My parents never ever practiced "long division". The only reason why they never did was because they never met my boyfriends. My first one was just a jerk. It wasn't really a good relationship but we continue to date even though people and ourselves knew we couldn't really keep it up. My boyfriend after him well he was going to meet my parents on Thanksgiving but we were both busy with family and work. than one day it just couldn't happen like it wasn't going to. We didn't break up it was just a long story. My parents have had the talk with me and know the rights and wrongs.
When has a friend opened up a whole new world for you?
A friend has opened up a whole new world to me when I was in a pretty bad state in my life. This was recently too. A lot has happened this year well toward the end of 2016 than coming into 2017. I didn't wan to eat or talk to anyone. Even towards my parents. My friend had been checking up on me to see how I was doing. I told her what was happening and my story because she had know what had just happened. She was just there for me. She understood me and if I needed to cry she's right there for me. We been friends since the 7th grade and now onto high school we remain friends which I'm glad we are. She just told me "Brighter days are ahead, Don't let anyone tell you different or so". For that i'm thankful to have her in my life. Literally if it wasn't for her, well I don't know where exactly I'll be at.
What is the most important advise you have ever received?
The most important advise I've gotten is "Just let it go, Better things are ahead." My friends always tell me this. I shouldn't be waiting for someone to just change their ways. If I do that I'm just wasting my time where I can be doing better things and even have more fun. The saying "Better things are ahead." is true. It may not seem like it but there are better outcomes ahead. Sure life may be rough at times and bumpy but as time moves along and days end, you learn from mistakes, you learn from that day, and you tell yourself, "Its a new day, new beginnings are in store for you." Just don't give up for what you are reaching for. Strive for your success.
What was the stupidest thing you have ever done? Did someone persuade you to do it?
The stupidest thing I've done was sounds weird for me was doing drugs. My friend had some one day while were in a quince and was giving some to do the group but i was the only one to not take some. The next day we all ate together at lunch and he still had some. My mind was telling me to not to take them but I ended up taking them. It was weird. I felt guilty after I did them. It just made me very sleepy and just like you couldn't walk. The following days I was back to normal but my friend had apologize on making me take them. I will never do them again.
Any topic you want
My birthday is coming up in 11 days and it just doesn't seem like anything special. My birthday is march 1st and basically it's nothing to celebrate anymore. The person I love is no longer here to celebrate with me like we were. His birthday passed already and I celebrated his but it just wasn't the same like we were going to do. My parents plan on not doing anything for it so what's the point. All I know is that i'm going to be put in Driver's Ed and hopefully get my permit than do my hours in the summer and get my licensed by the time school starts. I'll also be working pretty soon which I'm excited for but not really. I just want to earn some money that's all.
What do you wish you knew then that you know now?
I wish back than that the people you love won't be hear for a long time. It's weird to know that any person's life can be shorten. They always say tell your loved ones that you love them cause you never know what can happen. I've had a loved one very close to me go too soon. I now know it can happen any day. It's tough to go through something that you never thought you would go through but as time goes by you find a way to get through the dark days and see light little at a time.
