My Winter break of 2016 was pretty good. I got to go back up to new Mexico ever since I was 9. I also went up there with my brother an my dad to see my aunt. It was a pretty long drive up there (probably because my dad went the long way) and a long drive back down home, after that we didn't want to even go near another car. Overall it was a good trip an it was good to see my aunt again.

I can conceive any dream I have if I put my mind into it. If its a dream I can make possible then yes, i will believe it. If I really really want this dream to become reality then yes I can achieve it.

January 13th, 2017

My plans for this three day weekend are to stay home and not do anything at all. Maybe have a couple friends over so we can go ball up, or my girlfriend so we can watch a movie. Other than that i ain't really doing nothing.

Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?

Yes I have passed on a kindness. I was staying at a hotel in Carlsbad, New Mexico and I went to the little store downstairs in the lobby to get a drink. I grab the drink an take it up to the register, the cute teller and i asked her "hey hows your day beautiful"? with a charming smile. She said "it's been great, you know what you don't have to pay its on the house". I said "thank you" have a good night".

Who is your biggest fan?


January 27th, 2017

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

I love that I can wear just about anything and pull it off most the time. It doesn't matter how ugly that Christmas sweater is, I can pull it off. I don't really know what others love about me, I've been told that others love my smile, other than that I don't really know.

January 30th, 2017

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

My sense to see is most important to me, I don't know what I would do without it. It enables me to see where I'm going and what is all around me.

February 1st, 2017

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

I see myself as hardheaded or determined in a situation where there is competition also stubborn at times. I think others see me as I try to see myself.

February 3rd, 2017

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

To be honest I treat people as they are and I feel a sort of ashamed about it. That's something I need to improve on, I should improve on it by treating people who they ought to be.

February 6th, 2017

How were you taught to tell the truth?

I was taught to tell the truth by being strait up and not "sugar coating" it. But don't get me wrong I can be a pretty convincing liar only when I have a good backup plan.

February 10th, 2017

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

A friend of mine has opened up a whole new world for me the first time I played paintball. My friend's birthday party was at a paintball place in Austin and I played and it seemed pretty intense the first game. I slowly started to like the sport and I got really into it a couple of years ago. I liked it a lot but I don't do it very often.

February 13th, 2017

What is the most important advise you have ever received?

The most important advice I've ever received is from my grandpa and my aunt virgie they have inspired me in so many ways to strive for the goals I have set and to come up with nothing less then the goal itself. I love those wise crazy people they know more about life and how to succeed then anybody I know.

February, 15th, 2017

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

The stupidest thing I've ever done is blindly break the heart of someone that means so much to me when I promised her and myself I would never do such a thing. I feel so ashamed about it and broken, I feel as if someone just stabbed every centimeter of my heart with knives. Nobody persuaded me to do it, except maybe the devil.

February 17th, 2017

Any topic of choice.

The Pittsburgh Steelers had a great season this year, they made it as far as the AFC National Championship when they had a devastating loss against the New England Patriots that sent them out of the 2016 season. I think we are well prepared and ready to take on next season to win our 7th Super Bowl.

February 22nd, 2017

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

I wish I knew that all those hours from staying home last year would add up and I would have to work them all off, but I am proud to say that I got them all done. Now I don't have to worry about them anymore, I'm all caught up.

February 24th, 2017

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

Yes, one time my friends and I were on an adventure around our neighborhoods and since we live between fields and land. We walked around the area and saw an abandon house with the back window wide open, so we went up to it and climbed in and then we saw a big raccoon and we flew back out that window, after that it was every man for himself and i didn't feel at all ashamed about leaving them behind.

February 27th, 2017

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 is once when my friend Carlos and I were driving on a dirt road outside of town and he saw a sharp turn coming up and it turned out it was a little sharper then he though. We started coming at a good speed and I told him to slow down or he ain't making it, he kept going at the same speed... so when he began the drift it looked pretty nice but about one second into it he went off road! and almost hit the fence but steered out of its way and I don't know how but we got back on to the road and kept driving in amazement.

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

Yes I have received an anonymous gift before, it was from my aunt she had mailed it to me it was that movie "A Clockwork Orange" and damn was that movie a trip! I found it a little hard to understand at first but later in the movie I understood most of it. Yes I have given an anonymous gift to someone and it was the handful of a girlfriend I have now, when I went up to New Mexico I brought her back a beautiful clay heart with angel wings on the front.

March 3rd, 2017

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

I try to organize perfectly, When it comes to being organized I make sure its done the perfect way I want it done. If it ain't the way I want it then I fix it to the way I want it.

March 6th, 2017

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

The best thing I have seen teenagers do lately is buy a pair of the newest Jordan's for a poor classmate who can't afford them. In a gym class all the students noticed this one guy who always came dressed in old or handed down clothes and the same pair of old worn out Nikes so the class put their money together to buy him a new pair of Jordan's and a couple of outfits.

March 10th, 2017

What are your Spring Break plans?

My Spring Break plans are to spend some time with a couple of friends I haven't seen in a while, possibly go camping but I don't know yet. I will probably end up going to the river if the weather is good and if the water is nice and looks swim-able, probably take my beautiful amazing girlfriend.

March 30th, 2017

What did you do over spring break?

Chill, Eat, Sleep, Vibe.

March 22nd, 2017

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

March 27th, 2017

Pick a subject.

I had a church retreat last Saturday it started at 9:00 in the morning but I wasn't waking up that early. So I woke up around 11:00 and chilled till about 12:30 that's when my dad and I left. I found out it ended at two in the afternoon so I was really tripping about just being there for two hours.

March 29th, 2017

What is the best thing you have ever written?

What is the best thing ever written to you?

The best thing I have written was an essay before winter break that I think I got a 100 on. It was pretty well constructed and was a great passage.

April 1st, 2017

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 have needed a friend most when my Aunt Lilly died 2 years ago. That hit me hard, I had also lost a close cousin a year before that so I wasn't doing well, I thankfully had my brother to tell me it'll be okay. And I had his when things weren't going to good back at home.

April 7th, 2017

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 made a resolution once before and I feel bad because it's actually only happened once. It was the begging of the 2016 year and I made a resolution to have most my grades above a 75 and it happened before the end of the school year. I felt pretty good about it and I haven't had a resolution since, which is kind of bad considering 2017 started 4 months ago.

confidence, a plan b to fall back on, and savings.

April 12th, 2017

For whom can you make life less difficult today?

I can make it less difficult for my dad by going to shop with him to go waste money on a shirt and tie that I'm going to wear once. I don't get why we have to put on a white shirt and "dress pants" an a damn tie all that for confirmation, faith is cool an all but come on man. I'm just happy its my last year.

April 17th, 2017

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

Yes I do, I pretend to be a catholic grace child but really I think I'm much more than that. There's more to life than church and getting on my knees and praying to an unknown savior. I think that came off a little to harsh, forgive my sin my lord.

April 24th, 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 have a few barnacles I carry around. I know its not healthy and its probably bad but I'm trying to get rid of them. I'm trying to be a better person.

April 26th, 2017

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

Yes I have been burned by a bad experience. It was me witnessing my aunt Virgie have a stroke right in front of my eyes, as all the family was walking out the door of her house in Austin; on our way to go out to eat she was walking in front of me and some way sum how she slipped and I mean she went flying backwards, and on the way down she hit her head hard on the last step in the staircase by the door. I haven't been the same ever since.

April 28th, 2017

Any Topic.

I don't got much plans for this weekend but hopefully my girlfriend, her mom, her aunt and I will go paint balling at the old place I used to go a lot in the summer of 2015 with my older brother. We used to go wreak on people with our expensive guns that were equipped with something called a "butterfly triggers" that made the trigger very sensitive and made it to where you can make the gun shoot as fast as you move your index and middle fingers. it's a pretty awesome thing.

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

I hate going out of my way to buy someone something or even offer it even though I know they aren't going to appreciate it or take care of it. But I do it anyways because I guess it makes me a better person in the long run? Eh I'll figure it out...
