How was your break and what did you do?

My break was great, my family and I went to Mexico. We were there for almost two weeks. We went lots of places and had fun we went to parties and we had a family reunion. I talked to my cousins and I saw lots of friends. It was nice to see everyone after a year later. We live like in a ranch so my nieces and I went to see the donkey they were so happy with it it was an amazing adventure. We climbed trees and ran through the fields. My sister and I went to dace and we also went to get our nails done. It was great. New Years was awesome, we were here and we popped fireworks and we had family dinner. Then we had music and BBQ and the most important, fun.

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

The most trouble I've ever given my parents is when I would not pay attention to them about stop dating this guy. They almost got to the point of moving me to another school just to stop me from seeing him. The most enjoyment I've ever given to my parents is when I got out of the ESL Program when it was harder to get out of it. I had to pass about more than 7 tests in English.

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

I can conceive a dream that is to be an accountant. I do believe in it but I really don't want to go to college because I believe that is too expensive. Yes I can achieve it because I like it and I think its a great career. I believe that an accountant is a great job and it will be awesome.🤔

We have a three day weekend, what are your plans?

My plans for these three days off are somewhat exciting for one day the rest will be boring. Starting today my family and I will go dine at Casa Maria to celebrate my mom's birthday which is tomorrow. We have reserved about fourth-teen seats. We'll have fun all together. Then on Saturday I'm planning on going to go get a gift for my mom. On Sunday it will be a chill day I'll just watch movies and stay in bed all day long. On Monday I'm planning on doing my Sunday chores, do laundry, somewhat clean the house and watch T.V. Then I'll do my nails and take care of my closet which is a mess. Then I'll take a shower and sleep.😊

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

When I like someone I talk to that person in a friendly manner, and to show my interest on that person I give all my attention. I treat them as how I would like to be treated because if I treated them bad and I get treated back too then our friendship or whatever it is will get damaged.🙃

Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?

Yes I have passed on a kindness. When I was at Mexico this last winter I saw an old man standing at the edge of the road when we were coming back. I had Christmas money that my brother gave me. It was about a dollar here in the U.S but in Mexico that was $20 pesos. I hurried to get my purse and get those twenty pesos so I could give them to my dad and then he could open the window to give it to him.

Who is your biggest fan?♥

It is difficult to decide who is my biggest fan, I have two who are really fans of me. First of all I have this friend of mine who has been proud of me for everything I've done and I know he is a fan of me. He told me that he wished to be like me, he wishes me the best. He believes on me, he is giving me all his support. If I ever need help he will be there for me. My other fan is my niece. She's only five and she says that she wants to be like me. She says that one day she will be like me, she'll do makeup, homework, she'll have friends, she will be tall and she will play with every kid. These two people are my biggest fans, and those people are my most loved ones. ♥♥♥

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

I have many things I love about my self but there is just one thing I really love about my self, the way I learn but I don't have to study. When a test arrives and I study I get lower grades as if I didn't study but when I don't study I get good grades. What others like about me is that I always have a smile on no matter what the situation I could be dying inside bu tin the outside I could probably be laughing.😊🙂

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

To me sight is the most important sense to me. Without sight I would go blind and couldn't see the beauty of life. My life would be nothing but darkness. I can't see from far and I wish I could see clearly without any contacts or glasses. When I was younger I could see clearly but as I got older my sigh started blurring out. I've always been so sensitive about my eyes in the fact that they always get watery when they get in different climate or when I use some kind of lotion they even go watery when I see the light outside.🌤

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

I see my self as a human being who doesn't care who is around her it could be a killer, an angel, a psycho, a president, anyone just as long as they love me like I do. I really don't care about who it is because I know they have kindness in the inside. Also I know I'm a wild girl though I don't show it. I really don't know how others see me I've heard from teachers that I'm a smart sweet kind girl and I guess that's how others see me.👩🏽

February 3

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

I treat people as how they are, if they give me an attitude I'll give them and attitude. If they are going to talk nice to me I'm going to talk nice to them. I don't like when someone gives me an attitude and then I talk to them nice like that for me is not right. If they talk nice to me then I'll have to talk nice to them no matter if I'm in one of the worst days of my life. No matter if I'm sad, angry, or if is someone who I don't like and they talk nice I will talk nice too

February 6

How were you taught to tell the truth?

Well I was told that if I never said the truth I was going to have a consequence depending on what the lie was. It also was going to depend on who I told the lie to. I also was told if I said lies no one was going to like me for not saying the truth and I was not going to have any friends.

February 8

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

My parents have practiced long division on many of me and my friends. First of all when I lived in Mexico I had a friend who would always play with me when I went visit my grandma. My mom told me she didn't want me to hang around with her because she was rude I never did what I was told. Then here I met a guy from a state in Mexico where people say it bad and dangerous. I was going out with that guy. My parents never agreed just because he was from that state they judged him but they never took the time to get to know him better. We are not together anymore but we have a strong friendship. I wish one day my parents get to know him better, and maybe when that happens it will be too late.

February 10

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

When I was in seventh grade I met a girl, and a new guy. The girl became my friend she has always given me advice about everything and tries to protect me the best she can. The guy he has been by my side and he is making sure I don't get in trouble and I do my best in school.

February 13

What is the most important advise you have ever received?

I've received many advises from a bunch of different people, but one that really got me was to not trust every single person. Not to trust anyone because not everyone is going to keep its mouth shut. Most people are going to keep the conversation between two but not everyone is like that.

February 15

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

The stupidest thing I've ever done is crack a flour egg on my friend's head at school. Later a teacher found out and told everyone who was cracking eggs on her head to go to a classroom we all got in trouble. The girl told us to do it and I got persuaded to do it since everyone was doing it and she liked it.🙃

February 17

Any topic of choice

These couple of days have been so stressful plus I've been sick. Yesterday, February 16, 2017 was #DayWithoutImmigrants, I supported my family and Immigrants by staying at home. I.C.E. is not just taking those with a criminal record they are taking the good people too and that's what we are arguing about.

February 22

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

I wish I knew that to have a good relationship you need to trust her/him at anything. I wish I knew what teenagers go through. I wish I knew what it was to live here in the U.S. I wish I knew who my trusted ones were. I wish I knew who was going to be there for me even if I moved from school. I wish I knew everything has a time and a place. I wish I knew anything that would've helped me fix my past.
