How was your break and what did you do?

I didn't travel or go anywhere extravagant or anything like that, I stayed home most of the time and played video games with my best friend for the entire first week of the winter break. I spent Christmas with my family and I got everything that I asked for. I got to see my cousins and my family and had a lot of laughs with them. I also spent New Years with my friends. My friend Kyle had a New Years Eve party and I went and all of my other friends were there and we made a fire and popped some fireworks and then afterwards spent the night at his house and just hung out before going back to school. That's pretty much all I did over the winter break.

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

I think the most trouble i have ever given my parents would be when i constantly take my sweet time or just give attitude when they tell me to do stuff and its not like i usually don't want to because they spoil me so much and i'm like a really pampered kid and they do a lot of stuff for me and i really appreciate that but i feel like i really give them a hard time when i don't really like to do anything chore related and i'm pretty sure it annoys them because sometimes they give me really weird chores like clean random things that nobody is gonna ever notice. My mom constantly likes to clean and its annoying because if i get anywhere near her while shes cleaning she'll make me do something to help her. Anyways off topic. The most joy i think i have ever given them is just my accomplishments in life like when i do really good in school or when i play tennis my dad gets really happy cause he just likes watching me play a sport and he likes to play tennis with me sometimes and overall i think they just really find happiness and joy when they see me succeed by myself and get closer to being an adult and just become independent.

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

This may sound really nerdy but I've always wanted to be a professional competitive gamer. I feel like i could see myself doing it and actually being on a team that plays competitive games and what not and going around the world to play in tournaments and meet new people and see new places and experience new things. However it may be a very difficult to achieve because i have a lot of other stuff going on in my life. School being one of the biggest one that takes up a lot of my free time. Possibly during the summer when i don't have school i could attempt to do some gaming, I'm pretty good and I think i would have a good chance of making something but I wouldn't have free time during school to continue.

What are you doing this weekend?

This weekend i might be spending the night with my best friends and probably just stay at his house and play video games and maybe go do something outside. We usually always have fun spending time with each other and end up staying really late up all night long. That's probably not gonna be till Sunday night since we have a long weekend, thank god. I might also just play some video games tonight and Saturday until i go over to visit my friends.

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

I think I know i like someone if i can just not talk to them and watch them talk and be themselves when they are with their friends. I like to watch them how they are with people they know and i can really tell if we'd be good friends. Usually ill try to talk to them and make some small talk and just get to know them anyway I can. I can tell that i wont be good friends with someone the first day i meet them within those first few minutes. Most likely if i don't wanna be friends with them ill just say hi to them or something. If i don't want anything to do with that person ill probably never try to talk to them only when mutual friends bring us together.

Have you ever "passed on a kindness"?

I have passed on kindness before, but i wouldn't necessarily say I did it on purpose. It was kinda an accident but it also wasn't. I didn't mean too but i just really didn't feel like being all nice and kind that certain time of the day because i had just lost my tennis tournament and i was pretty annoyed and rude and what not but y'know i told them don't take it personally and i even told them i just lost my tournament so i didn't feel that bad but oh well.

January 25, 2017

Who is your biggest fan?

I think my biggest fan, or fans would most likely be my family. They're the most supportive people I know. It's hard for me to explain how but they are. They cheer me on everyday or whenever i have really important events coming up. They like to be involved as much as they can with me and my school life, and i think that's pretty cool. Whether its tennis events or choir or anything academic related activities they like to cheer me on and be helpful anyway they can. I can especially tell they get really happy and joyous whenever i can do something really adult like on my own or really show that i can take care of myself and act independently.

January 27, 2017

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

What i really like about myself is that i'm very talented in multiple things, and that i don't like the feeling of losing and that i really strive to be the best i can in any thing that i do. My friends really like that i can help them no matter what, and that i'm able to really help my friends through their problems and just be kind and a heartfelt person. I also just really appreciate that I can pick up on things very quickly and learn how to do something very fast and efficiently without having to do it multiple times.

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

I'd say that my sense of sight is my most valuable thing to me just like everyone else. having the ability of sight is one of the most useful and essential things needed to live life to its fullest potential, even if you lose one of your any other senses your life is still greatly impacted because without any of your senses you cant really function and live properly and a life without one of your senses is just dropped down by a lot. If i were to lose one of my sight, or any of my senses really i would be very distraught and miserable, losing one of the greatest things you can use in every day life and is devastating and tragic to ones mentality

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

i see myself as a smart, witty, sarcastic guy who tends to be a little sassy and have some attitude sometimes. Sometimes i can be mean without even knowing it and i can hurt someones feelings without me even knowing that i did it. I think others see all of this about me too and they know that whenever i'm mean i don't usually mean to be and i'm very oblivious sometimes so i just kinda have to be careful with what i do and what i say. Mainly i'm a nice friendly person but when i get annoyed and tired i get mean and rude so i think i know this about myself and others know this about me too so yeah.

February 6, 2017

How you were you taught to tell the truth?

i was taught to tell the truth by just being as honest and genuine as possible. Most of the time if its my friends ill like to tell them the truth and be honest with them as much as possible and not really lying but yknow if its for the best interest i will.

February 8, 2017

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

My parents have never really done anything too dramatic like that to me and my friends, they have only done it once and it was when me and my friends got in trouble taking trump signs out of the yards of the people in my friends neighborhood. We collected like 10 of them and after that we didn't really know what to do with them so we just kinda hid them in the back of his car but then his dad found out we took them and called our parents and so i was in trouble for a few days but i wasn't like grounded or anything just couldn't spend the night for like two weeks but now everything is cool.

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

in 9th grade when my friend told me about tennis. I used to go out and watch him play at his tournaments and watch and support him play because he used to tell me all about how it was a really fun sport and how much he really liked to play and what not, so my sophomore year i choose tennis as one of my sports and i really, really started to like it. The coach told me that i was able to pick up really fast and learn really quickly so i was able to go into the JV period and play on the JV team for my sophomore year, and now coach is working with me alone to practice with me so i can start to get a lot better and get moved up to varsity.

February 13, 2017

What is the most important advise you have ever received?

I think some of the most important advice i have ever received is a life lesson or a lesson to live by every single day. "Always remember, never accept the world as it appears, dare to see it for what it could be." That is the most inspirational thing i have ever been told, it really makes me think about how much the world can be changed and how much we can do to help change it. There is a lot of things going on in the world right now especially inside the united states, with our new president.

February 15, 2017

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

I think the stupidest thing i have ever done was when i went with my friends around his neighborhood stealing trump supporter signs from their front yards. He lived in a really big neighborhood and it was populated with a lot of old white people (stating a fact not trying to be rude) and a lot of them had trump signs in their front yards so we decided to go around stealing their trump signs and throwing them in the back of his car, and we drove off. No one really persuaded me to do anything i just kinda did it. We didnt get in trouble or anything we got away with it cause it was really late and dark outside so no one saw us do it.

February 17, 2017

What are some of your hobbies, what do you like to do in your free time.

Some things i like to do when i'm bored is that i like to play on my computer, i either like to play games or work on Photoshop or watch YouTube videos and stuff. I usually always end up playing video games towards the end and i play video games for quite a few hours, and then after i usually call my friends to see if they want to play games with me, and then we usually play for another few hours.

February 23, 2017\

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

i wish i knew that if i just do it and stop trying to put it off, it'll be a lot more stress of my shoulders, i know it sounds really dumb and cheesy but it is true. I sometimes just freak out and start to get really nervous when i don't have enough time to do what i need to do.

February 24, 2017

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

I have left someone behind but not in the traditional way you would think, i left them behind because our friendship was just terrible, we once were best friends but that slowly ended once he started to change. We use to do everything together as best friends but things change and so do people and there's nothing you can do about it, you just have to move on just as time does. It wasnt the most terrible thing to happen however, i found my actual group of friends who slowly became my new best friends.

February 27, 2017

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

The most frightening thing i think that has happened to me was when i went to the hospital because of really bad headaches, i kept get really bad chronic headaches and they got so bad that i started to actually crumble in pain. I was eventually taken to the hospital and then they took me in right away and then they gave me an MRI and i was in that hospital for about 5 hours just getting constantly checked on and taking medicine and getting my vitals taken. I just eventually thought i would get better and i did, all i had to do was wait for the medicine to help me and i was eventually diagnosed with cluster headaches that would happen in multiple places at once. Once i was better we headed home and i stayed home for the day.

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

I don't think i have ever received an anonymous gift before, i also don't think i have given one to anyone. I don't really think that giving and receiving gifts anonymously is really weird and awkward to me and if i gave someone a gift i would tell them or if anyone has given me an anonymous gift i would usually find out who it was. It makes me feel weird when i get a gift and i don't know who its from, it just gives me a creepy feeling, i don't know why.

March 3, 2017

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

What i try to do perfectly? I try to do a lot of things perfectly, i try and play tennis perfectly, i try to sing perfectly for choir, i try to do my classwork perfectly i try to do a lot of things perfectly. I try to do everything to near perfection and once i get it to perfect and then i mess up i get very upset and i get really unhappy with myself to the point where i give up and just don't try anymore. I don't take failure very well and it hurts me to the core to see myself not able to do something perfectly. That's what happen

March 6, 2017

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

I think one of the best things i have seen teenagers do lately is just being kind and friendly to others, i don't really see what teenagers do cause i don't really pay attention to them because i didn't know i was suppose to but what i have seen is teens just being really friendly and kind. I guess a lot of them are just nice and try to make an effort on being better people and normal things like that.

What are your Spring Break plans?

well over the spring break i'm gonna be going to Florida with my best friend who i have not seen in a long time. We're gonna take a week vacation to Florida and we plan on doing lots of fun events the hotel has to offer. My best friend and I have not seen each other in a really long time. Usually we only see each other once a year because we live really far apart from each other. She lives in Houston and I live here, so its not easy to just see each other over the weekend. My family decided to do a vacation and my mom asked me if i wanted to invite her and i said yes, so i texted her that night and she said yes so now were gonna be leaving for Florida Sunday morning.

March 20, 2017

What did you do over spring break

Over spring break i didn't really do much, i stayed at home most of the time and just relaxed and played a lot of video games with my friends. I did go to six flags and spent time with my cousin and we went on roller coasters and ate different food and stuff. The only bad thing about going to six flags is that it was on a Saturday and the lines were super long and it was very crowded and hot. We only were able to ride three different rides because the lines were an hour long each wait and we didn't feel like waiting for hours for one ride. Overall i had a really good spring break and was able to just relax and take it easy for a while.

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 guess the times I've really needed my friend the most was when i was in the middle of failing a class and being almost ineligible for UIL and Tennis. I was really scared and nervous I wouldn't be able to play, and i didn't wanna let my choir directors down or my tennis coach, since tennis was going to have districts soon i really didn't wanna miss out on that because i'm one of the top players and he needs me to play so i can go win for our school and i didn't want to miss UIL for choir because im in the top choir so yeah. I've been there for my friends when they feel sad and just need someone to talk to.

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

Well my personal bank account is just a way so my dad can give me money whenever i need it, i don't have a job or anything because its not really a bank account to save money and what not. I'm not rich or bankrupt because i don't have anything to become bankrupt from.

April 7, 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?

I think my resolution was to actually try a lot more and stop being so lazy and bored of everything, i have been able to make most of my resolutions happen and be a lot more active. Plus I started playing tennis and since i have tennis and choir i need to worry about i'm been a lot more active about what i have been doing and a lot more cautious about what i need to do.

April 10, 2017

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

I dont think i really have a secret, if someone is really important to me and i need to get it done, i usually just have raw talent to help me to do something thats important. I usually never have tor really try as hard as others to grasp a concept or learn something so i never worry to much about something.

April 17, 2017

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

Sometimes i do pretend to be something im not but only when i try to impress someone i dont really know, i slowly work my way into getting to know someone or letting them get to know me. I rarely ever try to pretend to be something im not because im happy with my life, I have a pretty great life right now and i dont wanna change anything about it.

April 21, 2017

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

I would like to break the habit of me just giving in to easy and not really trying to stop myself from doing something, and its not even like really bad either like just simple stupid stuff like junk food or being lazy or something dumb like that. I've tried to break it a few times but most of the time i just end up giving in like i cant stay committed because in my head i'm like its not a big deal so i can break it but oh well, maybe one day ill stay strong and not give in.

April 24, 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 do carry just one barnacle from past mistakes, but its a barnacle that i can get removed and cleaned off by just accepting that i got a barnacle and knowing that i have to forgive myself for the mistakes i did and move on with life, if you hold on to the past for too long how can you live in the now and how can you make more new experiences, that's how i let go of these burdens.

May 3, 2017

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

I hate when I end up being a pushover for people and doing stuff for them and going out of my way to do stupid stuff, i guess its not really that big of a deal because i only do this for my really close friends, but even then doing it for anyone is a task and really makes me mad that i just give in so easily and do little tasks for them. I guess it makes me a good friend to do them but its just really tedious and annoying.
