How was your holiday and what did you do?
My holiday was okay, I really didn't do anything. On the first week on the break My Family and I went to a carnival in San Antonio. The rides over there were so fun that most of them My Brother and I went on a ride many times. One ride called "The Scream" i went on like four times with my Brother. It would take us up in a circular motion and sometimes let us hang on from the ride then drop down really fast.
What is the most trouble you have ever given your parents? What is the most enjoyment you have ever given them?

So he had enough of it and pulled me to the fridge and asked if i wanted hot sauce in my mouth and of course little me didn't like hot sauce so I said no. The enjoyment I gave them was in elementary when we would have honor award. I got all A's award and best attendance. She was so proud of me.
Does writing help you express your feeling?
Yes it does, sometimes it hard for me to tell someone how I really feel. Its better to write it down because if I would of said towards them face-to-face i would have most likely mess up. Writing it down is much easy because I could write it all down and at the end I could fix it up.
What dreams can you conceive? Can you believe it? Can you achieve it?

What are your plans for the weekend?
I might go to somewhere that is an hour away from Houston and go to a dog show. My mom's boyfriend breads dogs that compete with other dogs. He breads mostly bullys, frenchies, and American bulldogs. One of his dogs is the worlds "baddest" dog, and his name is sinner. But after we do that we might go to Houston and go to the mall that has a ice skating rank in it.
How do you decide if you like someone? How do you show interest in them?
You will know if you like someone if all you do is smile when they talk to you, or even when they pass by you. All those butterflies that are in your stomach would start to come up. You could show interest by talking to them a lot and always playing fighting. Talking to that person all the time and showing you're down for them would show that you are interest in them.
Have you ever "passed on a kindness?"

Knowing that I help people and making them appreciate me makes me happy.
What do you love most about yourself? What do others love about you?
People like how understanding I am to their problems. I am always there for other people when they are feeling down.

What I like about myself is that I could be fun at times but in other situations I could be very serious.
How do you see yourself? How do you think others see you?
I see myself as a very shy person in the beginning, but once you get to know me I am really crazy. I don't really like to talk to people that much if I don't know them. I feel like people look at me as annoying. Like once you hear my laugh its so loud and annoying but there are some people who can stand it which are my friends.
Do you treat people as they are, or as they ought to be?
I treat people as they are, because if they come up to me mad then I won't be nice to them. I don't know how they are going to become so for now what ever they show me, I give it back to them. If they don't like it then they would change.
How were you taught to tell the truth?
I was always told to tell the truth no matter what. Its better to tell the truth than to tell a lie and let the other person find out themselves. Even if the truth hurts other people its not worse than telling a lie. If I were to lie it would make me as a bad person and not trust me.
Have your parents ever practiced "long division" on you and your friends?
My mom has before, I was living in Seguin. One day I was spending the night at one of my friends. Her family smoked in the house and when you would go over there all you would smell is smoke. After that day I walked to my house because we had lived close by each other. My mom asked what was that smell but I didn't know what she was talking about, so she called me in and told me that I could hang out with her anymore because she thought she was going to be a bad influence.
When has a friend opened up a whole new world for you?
Not that long ago, my friend showed me that I could do something and not be afraid to get in trouble. I have been always scared to go "out of the box" but now when I'm with her I can do what ever. She always told me to chill out or nothing is going to happen, so I just took her advice. It feels cool knowing that not everything I do can't be that bad
What is the most important advise you have ever received?
I got good advise from people that are older than me. They told me that life can be hard but you can't always get an easy way in through things. Life might has its ups and downs but know that every dark place about life has a bight side at the end you just have to fight for it.
What was the stupidest thing you have ever done? Did someone persuade you to do it?
Most of my life is me being stupid but the most stupidest thing I've done was to lie to my mom. It doesn't sound that bad but if I try to lie to her I would get in so much trouble, but the dumb thing about is that she knew that I was lying and she just played along with it and me of course thinking that I finally lied to her and got away with it. I know now not to even think about lying to her, because there is no point in that.

What do you wish you knew then that you know now?
That not to trust people that seem to know you but trust the people that show it in action. Not everybody that is your "friend" is going to be your friend at the end. People that waste your time as being a "friend" could cause drama and push out the people who are really down for you.
Have you ever decided to leave someone behind? How did it feel?
I have before left someone behind, it felt like a heavy weight just came off of my shoulders. She was a bad influence that every time we would have class together we would end up getting in trouble.

What is the most frightening thing that has happened to you? How did you live through it?
The most frightening thing that happened to me was seeing my dad getting taken away when I was little. I just figured that he won't be in there for long, because he actually didn't do nothing wrong. For that our relationship ha snot been so tight.

In dance sometimes we have to dance in front of the teacher to get our grades. I practice the day before and that day to at least get a grade high than a 80. I have to do it perfect so I can get comfortable with dancing in front of people and go into diamond line. That is one of my goals

I've been wanting to go to Houston, because I remember that when I was little I went there to go to a mall that had an ice skating area and I would go to ice skate. I'm not saying I'm really good it's just that I'm better than my family.
What did you do over Spring Break?
I really didn't do anything over the break except on Thursday and Sunday. On Thursday, my mom and I went to a rodeo in Houston, we went to go see Luke Bryan.

That was the best way to end the spring break.

The best thing I have written was when I use to right on my own about how I felt. Coming from me can be better than someone else doing it. It happens every month from my friend she tells me how I made her life better and how special I am to her.
Any topic of your choice.
This week was mostly testing for English, but it was on both B-days so now on Friday it has to be a B-day so the teachers can have time to learn them.

I don't really have a personal bank account in check, but if I do I am most likely going to be bankrupt. If I see money or have any contact with it I might as well spend it. I would want a lot of stuff, but most of the stuff are probably expensive and my money would all wasted.

For whom can you make life less difficult today?
My mom has been doing everything for me since day one. She has been handling my brothers and I for our whole life. Going through the pre-teen years for me, not leaving my side. I just want to at least worry about herself and not all about the kids.
Do you pretend to be someone or something that you are not? Why?
Yes, it mostly happened when I was a kid. I did it because I wanted to try to feel how they felt. I would sometimes be a super hero so i can feel strong and impossible.
How are you unlike any other person? What makes you unique and different from everyone else?
I am unlike everybody else, because I handle different thing in different ways than other people can. Not everybody are the exact same as other people. For an example, I can ride a bike, but my friend on the other hand can not.
