How was your holiday and what did you do?
My winter break was alright. It was very slow, and I attempted to sleep in but was not allowed to really do so. On New Years Eve I went to Six Flags with my best friend. We got to be the first two people on one of the rides, the poltergeist, and we rode front seat by ourselves. We then got to ride again, which was twice in a row, which is extremely rare at amusement parks.

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

A high school football player felt hurt and betrayed when his girlfriend broke up with him, and it affected his game. His coach suggested that he write down all of their experiences, good and bad, and what he learned from them. When he read what he had written, the football player realized how she had shaped his life and made him a better person. With that, he could move on. Does writing help you express your feelings? "Love is Never Lost," David J. Murcott, CSTSII
Writing does not particularly help me express myself. I know that it helps others, as people have told me their personal experiences, but writing does not particularly help me.

A college student was offended by a professor's remark and thought that the professor didn't like him. A friend suggested that the professor might be thinking the same way. " People like people who like them," he said. "If you show an interest in him, he'll be interested in you." When the young man spoke to the professor in a friendly way, their relationship changed. How do you decide if you like someone? How do you show interest in them?
I don't really decide whether I like or dislike somebody. I either click with them or I don't, it just occurs naturally to me. I show interest by making attempts to talk to my friends and making sure I spend time with them.
