Edward Hernandez principles


How was your holiday? and what did you do?

My holidays were really nice because all I did was have fun because I just sleep and ate. We opened presents in Christmas eve but it was at 12::00 am so technically it was already Christmas. In New Years we went to my aunts house and we ate there and talked and chilled with the family and at 12:00 am we popped the fire works! it was really fun!


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 have given to my parents was not to show up from school. That got me into a lot of trouble because my mom was really worried about me. The most enjoyment i have given my mom was to get all A's in my report card. This brought her a lot of joy because it was the first time to get all A's.


Does writing help you express your feelings?

Yes, because its like talking to another person except that your writing it. Sometimes its hard for someone to talk to another person, so may be it's easier to just write it. Also when expressing your feelings you might want to make it into a story.


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

My dream is finish high school, go to collage then go to med school and become a Anesthesiologist. I do believe its possible and yes, I can conceive it with a lot of work and a good attitude.


What are your plans for this 3 day weekend?

My plans for this 3 day weekend is to get a hair on Saturday, go with my brother in law to work out for a little bit, then we might go to Houston to visit my grandma. I am also planning to go to the movies but I don't know what movie jet. I am also planning to catch on my hours of sleep.


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

When I like some one I usually try to be with them the most of the time. I pay attention to their personality and how they look and what they like. I'll ask them how their day has been and how its going, and If I have money I'll buy them something like some hot chettoes or like a slush.


Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?

I have because one day I asked a my mom if I could have a dollar out of the no were and she just said yeah. My mom usually doesn't give me money out of the no were, but this time she was kind enough to give me two dollars. So when I went to school I bought something for my friend in the snack line; I passed on the kindness.


Who is your biggest fan?

I don't know. Maybe I have a fan or maybe I don't. Probably my biggest fan would be my mom because shes always telling me that she is very proud of me and shes always telling me that she wishes that my sisters were more like me, because I behave and I do my work at school and I am actually planning to go to college.


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

I like how I'm smart and how I'm a cool person to chill with. Some people like that I help them in class when they don't understand something. I also like how I'm a good person and I am also a very good friend, son and student.


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

It just depends on the person and if I like 'em or not. If its my friend I usually treat them like they are more or they are able to do more than they think. I push them so they can their best most of the time. But if a person that doesn't treat me right and its always talking trash I will do the same thing to them; sometimes i'll just ignore them.


How were you taught to tell the truth?

My mom would get really mad if she knew I was lying or she would hit me. But I would still do it anyways. She would some times ground me and she wouldn't let me play out side or with my legos or like my other toys when I was small.


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

Yes, my parents have told me that I couldn't be or hang with certain friends. I have all types of friends. So that means that I have friends who smoke and I have friends who do there work and are good in class, and sometimes my mom wants to tell me that I can't or that I shouldn't be hanging out with them. But at the end of the day there my friends not hers, and only cause they smoke, skip class or act bad doesn't mean that I'm going to follow their steps.


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

My friends usually always open a new world for me every day, because we're always talking a bout what we're going to be when we get older. Sometimes we talk about moving in to a big house and spiting all the bills like in five different payments so it can be affordable. Or sometimes we be talking about making like a man cave and buying a lot of TVs and just play Xbox and have parties all day every day.


What is the most important advise you have ever received?

The most important advise I have received was to always follow my dreams and goals as well. My teacher always tell me that I should always aim for a challenge and I need to always do my best every day. All those advice help me to be a better student and a better person as well. And almost all the time I try to choose classes that are a little challenge for me.


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

The stupidest thing I've done is not to go to pre-ap in freshman year. My friends were the ones that persuade me no to join pre-ap because they thought we weren't going to be in the same classes and I actually didnt want to be alone my-self. I regret it, because I could've been smarter than all my friends.


Your choice of topic.

Today I didn't go to 1st period because I went to go eat to this good as restaurant at the mall, Its called crackle barel and its was worth not going to 1st period. It was also fun and I also really enjoyed it.


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

I wish I knew who had my phone because I have no idea who has it. I lost it in gym and no one saw who took it, this was last Friday 3rd period in a C-day schedule. The sad part is that I didn't even have the phone for 3 moths. I already asked the front office and they told me that no iPhone had been turned it. I was pretty mad when I lost but now I'm over it. I also tried looking for it whit this app called find my i phone but it said that it was off line.


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

I actually don't recall if I have ever left some one behind. I probably have like an old friend that I never talked to again, or like an old family member that I just stopped talking to for a little while or for ever. But if that was the case I probably didn't mean to leave them or I probably did but no for just no reason; its more likely I did it because I had a good reason.


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 that a really big cockroach landed on me and was calling all over me. I didn't scream or anything, I just took it of real fast and left the scene. I dont know why one of my biggest fears is cockroaches, I think I have a phobia or something.


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

I have never received an anonymous gift in my life. I have never given one personally. But I have seen some one giving an anonymous gift to another person. And when they received that gift they were really happy because they had received a gift and they look very shi and embarrasses and full with curiosity.


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

I usually try to make my grades the best they can; If I have an 80 on a class it's not good enough for me because I know I can do better, and if I try hard enough I can bump all those 80's to 90's or 100's. And plus there's no reason not to try in school and to make the best you can every day.


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

The best thing I've seen a teenager do lately is to go and help this girl in the hall way pick up her books because she had accidentally tripe on something and drooped all of her stuff. I also saw this student holding the door for some people. The people were holding big heavy boxes that's why they couldn't open the door.


Has a smile ever changed your day?

I'am not sure if a smiles had ever changed my day. I think It has. I mean probably not the hole day, just that one moment. This one time I was at school and I thought a this teacher didn't like and one day she smiled at me and that changed a lot of things, because then i felt like she liked as a student and I had a better relationship with her and her class.


What are your plans for Spring Break?

My plans for Spring Break is to eat, and sleep all day. Well I'am going to go to Houston for a couple of days and I'm going to go see my grandma and my dad. I'm also going to play some Xbox games and just chill. Oh and tomorrow I'm going to go to the movies with my friends, were still not sure what movie to watch tho.


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

Yes I do, my friend changed a lot. We use to be really good friends, but when he left to mexico for a whole school year every thing changed. He we didn't have that same vibe we use to have and slowly we just stooped talking and know I don't talk at all in school or out of school. Its like we were never friends.


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

The dream I conceive is to become a successful and talented doctor when I'am older. I do believe its possible with a lot of hard work and commitment. I also believe that I will achieve my goal, I'am planning to do this by staying in school and trying my hardest in every class so I get a good GPA and i get accepted to a very good University.


What is the best thing you have ever written?

The best thing that I have ever written about was a tank you letter to the best teacher I have ever had. It was one of the best things I've ever written because I told her how going to her class made me feel and how learning that subject meant a lot to me, because I love math. After I send the letter she tanked me and told me that I had made her day.


Any topic of your choice.

Today I woke up and I am surprised I actually did that because I was tired because I didn't get much sleep last night. I feel really sick right know but there's nothing I can do about it because my mom is not going to come pick me up. I feel like I can throw up any second, and my stomach hurts a lot. I hope to feel better next period or something...


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

The only time I need a friend for like something important was like to do homework or like to go to the movies. Yes, my friends have been there for me when I've asked for help or when I just needed to chill with someone, or like when we have to talk about personal things. I have also been there for my friends when they've needed me. Or when they want to talk about whats happening around them.


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

The balance of my personal bank account is pretty good. I'm not that rich tho, because I sometimes don't make deposits. I'm a nice person but if you start acting with a bad attitude towards me don't expect me to be nice. If you ever need help with something and you ask me for help and I know i can help trust me I will help you. I just try to treat others like they treat me.


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 never made a resolution. I never followed it because I never had one, I don't even think I know what it is. If I were to have a resolution It would probably be to keep up on all my school, and homework as well as my chores at home.


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

My secrete to my success is to always staying persistent to what I say and to what I do. If I tell my self that I have to go in for a class to make up work, I stick to what I tell my self and I do it. I rarely forget things, but when I do I usually try to make it up for my self.


What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?

We live for our-self's and to make our and sometimes other people's live easier and better. We should always try to focus about you first then you should look around you and ask your self if you can help that person in anyway possible.


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

I do not pretend to be something I'm not. Why? because I'm just not that type of people. I dress how i want to and I talk how they thought me. I'm who I want to be. I don't try to act different just because someone does'tn like me.


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

What makes me different from other people is that i don't do things to be "cool" or to be "bad" i do the things I do because I have a reason and I know where I'm going and what I'm doing. I always try to keep my word when I tell someone I'm going to do something. I also try to achieve my short term goals as well as my long term goals


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

Some unhealthy habits I have is that sometimes when I'm bored i just eat. I have tried braking it by doing things that get me distracted like going outside, playing games, watching TV, or just simply reading a book. But some times I forget and before I know it i'm at my kitchen eating cereal or like some sandwiches.


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 really regret anything I have done in my life, because if i hadn't done that certain thing I wouldn't be here; this moment my life wouldn't exist. Don't get me wrong tho I have done things I wish I hadn't done for example stupid actions that have gotten me in trouble.


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 never been "burned" by a bad experience. And since I never been burned It has never transformed me into a new person. I don't really understand the question your trying to tell me. If what your trying to tell me is like if someone tells you something mean like a "burn" then yeah.


Any topic...

Today I'am having a really good day because every thing is going out so smooth and chill as i planned. And on lunch i'ma get some good as food, its pizza and i love pizza so, to day is going to be really


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

There's a lot of things I hate doing for example I hate cleaning my room or my house, but I still do it because I have to and if I don't do it no one is going to do it for me. I hate doing chores because we do it all the time, but if i don't do it no one will.


On what do you base your self-esteem?

I base my self-esteem on things I've done, things I want to do and the things I've been through. It all just depends on every thing. I don't have a low or a high self-esteem; My self-esteem changes due on what type of actions I'm about to do.


What situation in your life requires win-win thinking?

A win-win thinking is required in almost anything you do in life. Lets say you're taking a test, you obviously want to pass or get a good grade and so does the person sitting next to you. This win-win thinking also applies to life, because we all want to be successful and not have to struggle in life but you can't life is not that simple. You must work your butt off to get what you want.
