How was your break and what did you do?

My break was slow, but fun. My family had two Christmas feasts and had a BarBQ on New Years Day. I also raked the leaves, got some wood, and open some gifts on the break. I got shirts by the way. It was certainly better than last year.

What was the most trouble you given to your parents? What's the most enjoyment you ever given them?

The most trouble I've given was in the third grade when I set off a fire alarm. I gave them another thing to deal with, so it wasn't good for them. I don't know what was the most enjoyment I've given them, but I know it was one of my embarrassing mishap.

Does writing help express your feelings?

In my opinion, writing does help with expressing feelings. It can relieve all of the emotions you kept in and let go all the useless pressure built up inside you.

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

My dream is to become a successful business owner and to go international. I do believe I can do this challenging feat. If I can get my grades to higher than what I am, focus on other goals that can lead up to it, and read through things that can help me get to my goal, then I can achieve it and it can happen.

What are you doing this weekend?

I don't have anything planned this weekend. I'm just going to roll with what's handed to me. Maybe play some games and watch YouTube, but that's it.

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

You can decide to like someone by looking at how they are. If they are who you wold like them to be, then you can show interest to them. To show interest to them, you must engage with them. Have a chat with them and talk about stuff.

Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?

I think I did something like that, but I don't remember when or how I passed on kindness. It's been a long time since I heard something like that, so if I did, I didn't recognized it.

Who's your biggest fan?

My biggest fan is not a single person, but a whole community. That community is the you-tubers I watch. They inspire me to want to become something great and something bigger. Plus they are fun to watch.

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

I love the way I pursuit knowledge and how I dream to be something great in the future. Others might love something else about me like my out-of-nowhere comments or my funny side ( I asked people a while back), but it's their opinion. I like what I like about myself more than others opinion.

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

I consider my sight an important sense to me. I do a lot of my normal routines with my sight, I mean most of my activities require sight. I don't think I can do anything, except eat, sleep, or do my business, without sight.

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

See myself as a successful guy. I do great things for myself and take care of myself. Now when it comes to other people thinking of me, they see a energetic guy who's ambitions are unrealistic.

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

I treat people as they are. I don't really care for what they become because they are not me. Plus, they deserve to be treated like they are. Nothing more, nothing less.

How were you taught to tell the truth?

I was taught with a good whooping by my dad. It hurt a lot and ever since then, I reminded myself of the pain so I can make the better choices in life.

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

My dad has never done that to me or any of my friends. I'm single, so I don't run into that kind of problems. Even if my was in this situation, then my dad would be proud instead of mad.

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

I had a few friends who showed me a new world. My friend Dawson and his friend introduced me to anime and Liked it. Another friend of mine named John who told me about ceremonial guard and I tried it out and ended up enjoying it.

What is the most important advise you have ever received?

The most important advise I was given was that to always dream about my chosen future. A video on YouTube and my dad told the advise and I kept to them.

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

The stupidest thing I have ever done was the time I rang a fire alarm. No one dared me to do it, only me stupid self at the time. I regret the act I committed, but I get why I did it.

Any topic.

Sometimes I dream of cheese. I mean it's just dairy product. Don't ask why because I don't know what happens in my brain. It's a weird place in there.

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

I wish I could learn to stop worrying about failure. I would sometimes chock at unwanted times and would mess up. If I learned to stop worrying, then I could get on with what ever I'm doing.

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

I left behind my original mom to go back to Texas. It felt bad since I was five and she was my mom, but as the years went by I decided to get over it. I sometimes think about her and how she's doing.

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

The most frightening thing that happened to me was, surprisingly, the first time I rode a roller-coaster. I was young and haven't rode any before. All I did was live through it and hoped for the best. After the whole ordeal, I ended up liking it.

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

I did receive an anonymous gift once. I just saw it on my desk and there was slip of paper that said, "your welcome." I didn't know what to do, so I just said thanks. It was pretty awkward for me.

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

What I try to do is to do color guard performances perfectly. What would happen is that I would take time out of my free time and I get stressed. When it comes to the real deal, I would choke and get nervous, then I would screw up.

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

The best thing that I've seen is that they would volunteer for something that would raise money for something like the Wounded Warrior Project. They would use up their free time for something they don't have to do.

Has a smile ever changed your day?

It did change my day, but it only lasted a few minutes when my illness reminded me. I mean it did help me with my painful illness, but it didn't last the whole day. I guess in the sense of the butterfly effect, It did change my day.

What did I do on spring break?

I did a lot on spring break. To start it off, I went to California for most of it. We got to Long Beach Airport and went straight to Disneyland. We also went to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Fresno, and Sierra National Forest. It was very fun to go there.

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

I know of a guy who did change. He used to be a somewhat bully back in middle school and would mess with people, a lot. He did change by noticing the outcomes that led to his actions and by high school, he became a nice guy. He would still mess around, but for like teasing people.

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

I dream to be a international business owner and to become president of the United States of America. I do believe in these feat and I do believe I can go through the hardships that are in the way. I do know I can achieve these dream through time, skill, and giving not 100 nor 110 or 200, I'll give 1000% towards doing whatever it takes, but not corruption. That's bad.

Any Topic

I so freaking mad that Club Penguin has shut down. So much childhood memories and funny bans. This is the beginning of a new dark age.

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 only needed friends for projects or some help on a question, nothing big like emotional support. Someone would come for most of the time, but I don't mind. I would also come to a friend's need, either emotional or basic help. I did go to most of the people who needed help, but if I couldn't help them, I would ask another friend of mine to go in my place.

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

I like to think of myself as medium wealth with an equal earnings. I don't make promises, so I don't have to worry about breaking nor keeping them. In other words, I'm good on my money.

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 haven't made any recent resolutions, the latest resolution I made was my New Years resolution. All it had was one thing and it was to increase muscle mass by 10%. I haven't gone through it yet, but I'm working on it. If I want to create another resolution, it would be on improving my problem with procrastination because it's a problem.

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

My secret to success is doing requests from adults or a higher ranking person. If I do their requests, they'll think I'm reliable and more worthwhile than others. The one thing I always do that makes successful is to think that I can be even more successful, that way I can trick myself to be better than all of y'all.

For whom can you make life less difficult today?

I can make life less difficult to my teachers. I could stop being disruptive or finish my homework on time. I mean it ain't hard, but it's the other people who do those things. Maybe if I can get them to join in, maybe, just maybe we can get things on track and steamroll through the day.

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

I don't pretend to be anyone or anything. I am my own man and not some clown at school. I'm unique in my way and I don't want to change that. I am me.

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

It's the experiences that makes us different and determine our personality or dreams. Only our experience of the outside world is the catalyst of our changing (if that makes sense). That's what makes me unique, not our personality or our future, but our past.

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

I wish to quit my habit of procrastination. I've tried numerous times to kick the can, but I just can't stop. I just keep finding ways to get back into the habit. It's just tiresome.

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 do carry a few "barnacles" here and there. All I do to deal with it is to live through it, maybe turn it into a inside joke with someone who been through it with me. Plus, you only have one life in this world, so I don't really care if it has repercussions. There's always ways to improve.

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

I was actually "burned" by a bad experience. It happened in the third grade when I ranged a fire alarm on purpose. After that, I received many punishments like a whooping or 3 days of ISS. After that ordeal, I did change and I promised myself to not pull any stunt like that again.

Any topic of your choice

Have heard of the muffin man? The one down on Memory Ln.? Well he got shot up for making blueberry muffins in the wrong neighborhood. The shooters said something about being a Crip or something like that, so yeah.

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

I hate doing practices and performances for ROTC. I mean it helps me overcome the fear of messing up in front of people, but it takes out my free time. It's very tiresome and constant.

What situation in your life requires win-win thinking?

Basically every trade agreement I make requires win-win thinking. I mean I get what I want and the other dude gets the dough. We both prosper in the agreement. Does that sound too cheesy or nah?
