Profile Project by: Penelope

Hi my name is Penelope. A quote I like to say is "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well." This quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

A song I like to listen to is So Small by Carrie Underwood. I like this song a lot because it's about someone who doesn't have any love and they just shut everyone out, but if you let someone in even though it's hard and you don't want to they make your problem seem so small and it's good to help people. I think this song is good for me because it's kind of about helping someone with no love and I think helping people.

Some background info about me is I am a beautiful, perfect, popular freshmen at Rerden High School blond girl. I have always wanted to see the world, and all of it's wonders. When I go to collage I want to go to Stanford University and study architecture, to create something beautiful and memorable. I was the first Rerden girl to speak to Anorld Spirt (the new kid), but I generally ingnore him, until he found out I was bulimic, and I ended up crying on his shoulder, beginning our first "friends with potential" relationship. Like Arnold I have big dreams and want to leave the place where I come from, although my dreams are so grandiose to everyone, and Arnold finds them a little silly. Still their are complications to me and Arnolds relationship.

Today at school I was in the bathroom and I was vomiting and Arnold swears to me that he was in the boy's bathroom minding his own business when he hears a noise and it sounds like someone is throwing up. When I get out of the bathroom he sees that it was me who was getting sick. Even though I was humiliated that he knows I am bulimc, I'm also proud to be. When I tell him that I'm only bulimc when I throw up he gives me an understandable reaction. When I tell him how lonely I am, and how everyone thinks my life is so perfect because I'm smart, pretty, and popular I start to cry. During the dance Arnold wears his dads suit and has soon as every girl sees him in it, all the boys wish they wore theirs dads suit. After the dance we go out for pancakes and I discover he's poor, and then I start to cry.

My special skill is that I'm am really smart and I usually don't get questions wrong. My interests are I plan to go to collage and explore the world and all of it's wonders. My favorite thing n the whole world is I like to help poor people.
