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

Deciding to like someone is based on your feelings toward a person or an opinion you have. You may like someone or dislike them depending on how they've treated you. You show interest by asking questions about their life and giving them your time as well.

Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?

I believe I have passed on a kindness in the past, but to my knowledge I don't recall. I would like to say I've passed on kindness knowing that I've helped others in a way they could feel special. That would be a wonderful feeling knowing that I've been kind to someone, even if it's a person I don't know.

Who is your biggest fan?

My biggest fan would have to be my best friend/boyfriend. He has been cheering me on through everything I do. He motivates me each and everyday from sports to school to any activities that I do. I succeed from my hard work and his motivation.

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

What I love most about myself is that I'm a helpful person. I help friends with their homework or when they have a problem and need some advice. I also help my parents and sister as often as I can. I'm not too sure what others love about me, but I hope it's a good characteristic.

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

The most important sense to me is my taste buds. It is important because I love eating food. It would be horrible having to live my life without being able to taste any type of foods or drinks.

February 3, 2017

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

I try to treat other's as they ought to be because I believe everyone has their own full potential that they can reach. Everyone deserves to be treated more maturely no matter what age they are or how they act. I want the best for everyone and that they can reach their full potential.

February 6, 2017

How were you taught to tell the truth?

I was raised by very strict parents and they always expected me to tell the truth no matter what. They wanted me to be the best that I can be and never expected me to lie in anyway. I was never really taught to tell the truth, it was more of an expectation.

February 8, 2017

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

My parent's have never practiced "long division" on me. They are very strict and would not allow any guys or friends over unless there is a valid reasoning. I've never even heard of "long division" before besides in my math classes in elementary school.

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

A friend that has opened a whole new world for me is my friend Kelly Huynh. Before she came into my life I was a "follow the rules" type and when I met her everything went downhill from there. I became a "rebel" according to my family, but I thought I was doing okay. I believe all I did was open up more and became more of myself instead of a bundled up child who always follows dumb rules that have no meaning.

February 13, 2017

What is the most important advise you have ever received?

The most important advice I've ever received is to always work hard to achieve your goals because hard work pays off. I go by this advice almost everyday in my life from school work to track/cross country. It has helped me accomplished plenty of goals that I never thought I would be able to reach.

February 15, 2017

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

The stupidest thing that I've ever done is taken AP English III. English has always been my least favorite subject, but I always end up doing stupid things like taking an AP class. No one persuaded me to take that class and now I'm making a 69 in that class which is going to ruin my GPA and transcript if I don't bring it up before the 3rd 9 weeks.

February 17, 2017

Any topic of choice.

Tomorrow is the track team's first meet and I am looking forward to it. I'm really excited because I got the races that I wanted and I'm just ready to run. I know that I will be nervous tomorrow, but that's what helps me run faster.

February 22, 2017

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

I wish I knew how horrible high school was so that I would've been able to do the early graduation program to get the hell out of this place. I wish I knew how trashy some of these people are at SMHS so that I would've moved to another school or go to Phoenix. I hate going to this school, but I'm just trying my best to graduate with good grades, GPA, and ranking. I'm just trying to graduate at this point.

February 24, 2017

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

I left my whole entire family behind when my parents decided to move to San Marcos. I left my friends and family and it was the worst experience of my life. I personally wished I had never left Houston, but overall my experience here has been worthwhile. I met a really nice guy and he has made my high school experience unforgettable. But I also would like to thank my friends for also being the reason that high school is somewhat bearable.

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 when I got a B on my report card. My dad was going crazy because he expects me to get all A's. He was upset at first, but he eventually got over it.

March 3, 2017

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

What I try to "perfectly" do is get all A's in school so that my parents would be proud of me. Although my grades slip sometimes, I still do everything in my power to bring my grades up. I currently have two B's, but I'm working very hard so that I could bring it up.

March 6, 2017

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

The best thing I've seen teenagers do lately has to be when they did the walk out. They were protesting for their rights in a non violent way which was pretty cool. However, some of the participants were walking out just for fun and others knew why they were walking out and they had a purpose.

March 10, 2017

What are your plans for Spring Break?

I don't have a lot of plans for Spring Break. I know most of the time I will be doing the running workout that my coach gave me so I could stay in shape. I believe I might also be going out of town, but I'm not too sure about that.

March 20, 2017

What did you do over Spring Break?

During spring break I ran to stay in shape like I planned and I also went to Austin and such with my boyfriend and sister. We went to the mall and just hung out. I also started watching a TV series and it was worth it to binge watch.

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

The best thing I've ever written has to be any essays I write for testing. For example SAT, AP, or STAAR testing. The best thing that has been written to me has to be a really long birthday wish from a special someone. It was really long and sweet and I felt really appreciated and loved.

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 time I needed a friend the most was when I was having a really hard time at home. My boyfriend was there for me and I really loved that he was because he's always there for me. A friend needed me whenever she found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her during their relationship and of course I was there for her because she's typically always there for me.

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

I have 2.19 in my personal account. I'm definitely not rich nor am I bankrupted and I still have money so I guess I'm just in between. It would be great if I were to have more money, but I'm working on it right now.

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?

Yes I have made multiple resolutions before. Some of which included to better myself as a person and I usually make them on New Years or New Years Eve as something to achieve as the new year arrives. I haven't made any resolutions recently and this was made a long time ago so I guess I somewhat followed through with the resolution. I currently don't want to make any resolutions as of right now.

April 10, 2017

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

I don't have a secret to my "success" because I just work hard and try not to end up as a failure. I believe I have been "succeeding" for awhile now and I'm really proud of that. I work really hard so that I could be "successful" and make my parents and I proud.

April 12, 2017

For whom can you make life less difficult today?

I can make my mom's life less difficult because she works very hard to provide for my sister and I. I want her to be stress me and working less because I know things can get tiring as an adult. I hope to make her life less difficult, if not today, sooner rather than later.

April 17, 2017

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

I sometimes pretend to be someone I am not in order to protect myself and my feelings. I put my guards up although I am very nice and open to some people. Usually I am myself whenever I am with people I have opened up to or am comfortable with.

April 19, 2017

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

I don't know how I am unique and different from everyone else. I just know that I am different from others because everyone is born a different person. So I am different, but I'm not really sure how or why.

April 21, 2017

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

One unhealthy habit I would like to break is to stop drinking so many carbonated drinks and to start drinking water more often. I have tried to drink water only for a 30 day challenge in my English class, but I failed miserably. I will try again in the near future, but for now I will continue to enjoy my carbonated drinks.

April 24, 2017

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 usually don't carry anything and especially not from the past. I let go of things as much as I can in order to live a happier life. I know I've made mistakes in the past, but I learn from them and try not to repeat those mistakes.

April 26, 2017

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

No I haven't been burned by a bad experience. But if I were to, I believe that it would change my point of view on things and try to change me for the better. I hope to never go through a horrible experience, but I hope to change into someone better regardless.

April 28, 2017

Any topic of your choice.

Yesterday was the senior award ceremony and my boyfriend received an invitation to go to the ceremony. It was such a great moment seeing him walk across the stage because soon he will be walking across a stage to graduate. I'm very proud of him and wish nothing but success for his future.

May 3, 2017

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

I hate taking AP classes because it helps me work harder and prepares me for college. My first AP class was during my sophomore year where I took World History AP and it was definitely a challenging class. I believe that challenging yourself makes you a better person and also prepares you for the future.

May 12, 2017

What situation in your life requires win-win thinking?

I don't currently have a win-win situation in my life. However, I know if I were to have one then I'd want everyone to benefit out of the situation. Having everyone succeed is a really great feeling and I hope everyone has or grows to have the same mindset as I do.

May 19, 2017

How do you see the world?

I see the world as a place that is trying to change things for the better in many different ways. Racism and prejudice still exists til this day though many efforts in the past have tried to rid of these as much as possible. I dislike many things about this world and hope things change really soon.

May 22, 2017

Who is the best listener you know? How does he or she do it so well?

The best listener I know has to be my favorite person in this entire world, my aunt. Although I do not tell her everything that goes on in my life, she listens to me when I need her the most. She has always been there for me through my happiest and toughest times. She is the best listener I know.
