January 4th

How was your break and what did you do?

My winter break was great for the most part. I didn't do much over the break, but it was decent. My family went to Dallas for three days, but I decided to not go on the trip. So I stayed with my older brother at his house and spent Christmas there. Once my family got back from Dallas we opened more gifts. And that is how my Christmas break went.

January 6th

What is the most trouble you have ever given your parents? What is most enjoyment you have ever given them?

I don't really get into trouble with my parents. So I can't really recall the last time I really gave them much trouble. For the most part i'm a pretty good kid. As far as enjoyment goes I have given them a lot of joy. I think most of the joy I gave them came from school accomplishments. Since they were so proud of seeing me do well in school.

January 11th

What dream can you conceive? Can you believe it? Can you achieve it?

I can conceive that I will go to college. I believe this, because I am fully capable of doing so. I can achieve this, because I believe that I am fully capable of going to college. As long as I keep my goals in order to achieve my dream. It can come true if I believe. I have all the support I could need from my family.

January 13th

We have a three day weekend, what are your plans?

My plans for the three day weekend are to watch some football. Maybe go to some record store to see if there's anything that peaks my interest. I might go around to go take some photos of things. So that's mainly it besides sleeping of course. Although I might just do one of the three, but either way i'm looking forward to it.

January 18th

How do you decide if you like someone? How do you show interest in them?

When it comes to me deciding if I like someone. I usually try to see if they have any particular interest in common. After that I just try to see if they are a decent person. I show interest by just doing more than usual to create a good bond.

January 20th

Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?

I don't think I've ever did something like that. Now I have done acts of kindness, but I have never "Passed on a kindness" as the teenagers did. Well I suppose I have by helping others when the needed help. When I needed help others came to my side to help too. So I suppose I have "Passed on kindness".

January 25th

Who is your biggest fan?

I've never really thought about that I don't think I have a big fan. I guess my mom would count as my biggest fan. That's mainly who I guess not really a big story to who's my "biggest fan" and what not. So if had to pick I guess my mom would be my biggest fan.

January 27th

What do you love most about yourself? What do others love about you?

What I love the most about myself i guess is my humor and kindness. I think those are the things people tend to like about me. I'm also a laid back type of guy so I like that too. What others love about me is that I'm always there for them and I can make them laugh.

January 30th

Which of your senses is the most important to you? What would you do without it?

Out of all the senses I would say hearing is the most important to me. I'm heavily involved in music so hearing is probably the most important sense. I don't really know what I would do if I didn't have it. I'd assume I would find a different way to cope if I couldn't hear. Yet I think it would be very hard to cope with that since I love music so much.

February 1st

How do you see yourself? How do you think others see you?

I see myself as a pretty chill person, and a caring person as well. I think others see me as a quiet shy type of person and for the most part it's true. This is only because I choose to give off that type of vibe, but if you get to know me well you'll see i'm nothing like that. Yet most people don't get to see that part of me so it looks like i'm shy, but for the most part i'm not really.

February 3rd

Do you treat people as they are, or as they ought to be?

I think I do a little of both to be honest the way I put it is I take both sides and try to mix them together. I think you have to take in to account of who they are before you can do anything about making them as a they ought to be. I believe that a person can truly change who they are they just have to accept the change.

February 6th

How were you taught to tell the truth?

I don't remember how I was taught to tell the truth. I suppose it was at a very young age so I don't quite remember. I would expect I was told that telling the truth is always the right thing to do. So from there I guess that's how I was taught to tell the truth.

February 8th

Have your parents ever practiced "long division" on you and your friends?

No, not really I don't think that my parents have ever practiced what you call "long division". In fact I don't even know what that really means. If I think I know what it means and I apply my version. I don't think they have ever practiced it. I've have pretty good friends so I don't see why they would have to do so.

Feburary 10th

When has a friend opened up a whole new world for you?

I don't recall if a friend has ever opened up a new world for me. As far as like eye opening then no not really. I'm usually the one who does that, but I can't even remember the last time I did that. I don't really have anything to say about this topic. Other than that I haven't really had a experience like the one in the prompt.

February 13th

What is the most important advise you have ever received?

The most important advice I have ever received is from my favorite music artist in which he quotes. "If you want it, and if you really work hard for it than it can be so.". Which stuck with me because it's really as simple as that. If you work hard for anything in life chances are that hard work will pay off.

February 15th

What was the stupidest thing you have ever done? Did someone persuade you to do it?

I don't remember honestly like I don't think I've ever done something stupid. As to where I could remember what it was. I also don't get persuaded easily so I would never get involved in something stupid. So that's pretty much it nothing too interesting.

February 17th

Any Topic

Over the weekend I plan to lay back, relax and sleep. That's pretty much it to my weekend nothing much to my weekend. If that makes any sense so that's all I plan doing over this weekend. Although my family is going to Dallas. So that should be fun for them while I'll be staying at home with my brother.

February 22nd

What do you wish you knew then that you know now?

I don't really wish I knew anything to be honest that I know now. As odd as it seems I think that's the fun part of learning and growing up. If I did have to pick something that I wish I knew it would be something probably about high school. As a freshmen I wasn't really given too much information on the many thing's you could do. And I suppose that's what I kinda wish I really knew about.

February 24th

Have you ever decided to leave someone behind? How did it feel?

Yes, I have had to do that it was a very strange process in doing so. It was as if I had to outweigh the good and the bad in this person I was leaving behind. It felt really strange since I knew this person for a good six years. So it was I guess a bit hard, but it's what I wanted to do in terms of my happiness.

February 27th

What is the most frightening thing that has happened to you? How did you live through it?

The most frightening thing that has happened to me was probably cutting me knee open by accident. It isn't necessarily frightening but it is I guess pretty scary. At the time it was scary only because I was like ten or something. I mean it isn't life changing, but what could be worst than cutting your knee?. So i'm like most things can't be as bad as cutting your knee.

March 1st

Have you ever received an anonymous gift? Have your ever given one? How did it feel?

I don't think I have ever received an anonymous gift at least not that I know of. I've given gifts to others but it wasn't anonymous by any means. I don't know how I would feel if that did happen to me. I suppose I would be a bit confused at first, but then I would be glad that I got a gift.

March 3rd

What do you try to do "perfectly"? What happens?

What I try to do perfect is my music especially when it comes down to how it sounds. I wouldn't consider it as if i'm trying to do something perfect. But I think when it comes to music I just want it to be the best version of what I can make. Sometimes if I try to make it too perfect I end up getting stuck in terms of not knowing how to go forward with the music.

March 6th

What is the best thing you have seen teenagers do lately?

I can't recall the best thing teens have done lately. I haven't seen anything worth noting so I don't have much to say about the topic. Yet I am sure that there is good things out there that have been done by teens.

March 10th

What are your Spring Break plans?

My Spring Break plans are to I guess catch up on sleep. Maybe read a few books maybe finish those books. I don't know I don't plan thing's. I just go with the flow and just see where that ends up taking me. Hopefully it doesn't lead me to boring thing's. Anyways yeah I suppose I don't have any "plans" other than to catch up on spring break. Yet I am glad we have a week off so I can just relax and won't have to worry about school for awhile.

March 20th

What did you do over spring break?

What I did over spring break was mainly nothing really important. It was laid back for the most part. Although on Saturday I did go to Corpus Christi which was pretty cool. It was nice to go somewhere else a little bit and just enjoy the beach without any interruptions. So that's basically what I did over the break.

March 22

Do you know anyone who has made a major change in his or her behavior for the better? What caused them to change?

I don't think I can remember if I know someone who's made a big change in their life. I would suppose if someone decided to make a change in their life for the better. They would have done it for themselves, their family, their friends. I suppose some people decide to change because they're tired of the position they are in, and want to change that.

March 24th

What dream can you conceive? Can you believe it? Can you achieve it?

I can conceive that I will go to college. I believe this, because I am fully capable of doing so. I can achieve this, because I believe that I am fully capable of going to college. As long as I keep my goals in order to achieve my dream. It can come true if I believe. I have all the support I could need from my family.

March 27

Any topic

What I did over the weekend was help out with my sister's 15. So that was basically what my weekend consisted of just helping with her 15. The party was on Saturday and it didn't end til around midnight or sometime like that. Then on Sunday it was just a laid back type of day.

March 29th

What is the best thing you have ever written? What is the best thing ever written to you?

I think in terms of the thing I've written in which I made that person the happiest. So that would have to be when I wrote a sort of little motivational letter to one of my friends. It was a motivational letter for the staar test so it wasn't too big of a deal, but I liked what I wrote. The best thing that I have received was I want to say is the same type of letter from a friend. Which was nice because I wasn't really expecting it.

April 3rd

When have you needed a friend most? Was someone there for you? When has a friend needed you? Were you there for your friend?

I can't remember the last time I really needed a friend. I don't think I've ever been in a situation where I really needed a friend. Same goes for the last two questions I don't think a friend has ever needed me. I have given support to a friend, but it wasn't really that big of a deal. So I would say that I haven't really experienced this.

April 5th

What is the balance of your personal bank account? Are you rich or bankrupt?

The balance of my personal account is somewhat in the middle it's not a high balance I can tell you that, but it's not a low one either. I guess in terms of me being rich or bankrupt I would have to say again that I'm somewhat in the middle. I've done many acts of kindness, yet I've broken some promises and that's why I feel as if I would be in the middle

April 7th

Have you ever made a resolution? What was it? When did you make it? Did you follow through with it? What resolution do you want to make now?

I have made many resolutions most of them were mainly about being a better person. I mostly make my resolutions on New Years day just like the majority of most people. I usually don't follow with it, because in all honesty I'm pretty lazy. If I were to make a resolution right now I suppose it would be to practice on my music skills a bit more often.

April 10th

What is the secret of your success? What is the one thing you do that makes you successful?

The secret to my success is to not tell what my secret to success is to others. What I mean by that is that I have a certain way of getting things done. So I think if others were to follow the way I did things they wouldn't really succeed by my terms. I think the one thing that makes me successful is that I put things into perspective I never let myself get out of touch with myself.

April 12th

For whom can you make life less difficult today?

I think I can make life less difficult for myself overall. I mean just in general like I could just do things better as of now. I think I kind of put myself in this position on where I am now. So I think If I just do some certain things differently as of today. I believe that I will have a less difficult life.

April 17th

Do you pretend to be someone or something that you are not? Why?

I don't think I pretend to be someone or something else than I am. I just don't like pretending like I am someone else. I don't know why some people would act like someone they aren't. That might be like an insecure thing for some other people. I don't know, but what I do know is that I am not pretending to be someone else.

April 19th

How are you unlike any other person? What makes you unique and different from everyone else?

I would like to think that I am different by my humor I think it's on another level that i'm not sure others can catch on to, only a select few. I think what makes me unique and different from everyone else is that I just keep to myself, and i'm sure most people would say that. Yet I think I have a certain way of keeping to myself that makes me unique and different from everyone else.

April 21th

What unhealthy habit would like to break? Have you already tried to break it? How?

I think I would like to stop missing school so much. I think i'm getting better at coming to come school. I've tried breaking it by coming to school which isn't really a hard task. I think the main reason why I want to break this habit is because I don't like making up hours.

April 24th

Are you carrying around "barnacles" in the form of mistakes, regrets, and pain from the past? How could you let go of these burdens.

I don't think that I am carrying around any barnacles as of this moment, but I do know what it's like to have some so I suppose if someone wanted to let go of their barnacles they would have to acknowledge their mistakes. Then from there they would have to look into fixing what their problem is.

April 26th

Have you ever been "burned" by a bad experience? Has a bad experience ever transformed you and turned you into a new person?

I have been burned by a bad experience, but I don't think it changed me into a new person. I think what it did was just give me a different way of seeing things. I guess you could say it did change me since it made me look at things differently. Which I think it was a good thing to experience so I know how to approach things in life.

April 28th

Any Topic

What I plan to do over the weekend is try to catch up on some sleep, because sleep is vital to one's sanity. Plus I like sleeping I mean who doesn't? I also plan to watch basketball which should be fun hopefully my team doesn't get eliminated, but anything can happen. That's basically what my weekend will consist of.

May 3rd

Is there anything you hate doing, but you do it anyway because it makes you a better person? What is it?

I can't think of anything that I truly hate doing, but if there was something that I did hate i'm sure it would have made me a better person. Maybe doing homework when I was like a little kid made me more responsible even though I wasn't too fond of it. So basically little stuff like that that's played a small, but important role in my life.

May 12th

What situation in your life requires win-win thinking?

I can't really think of a situation in my life which requires win-win thinking. I would say that I think I have been in one of those situations, but I can't remember what exactly the situation was. I would assume that in that situation whichever it was both sides came out winning.
