All About Me Before I was born, my parents used to call me goblin. This was because I ended up being born around an hour after Halloween night, and at the time i was expected to be born right on Halloween. Since then it has been 14 years and I am now a freshman at Turpin high school. I have an awesome family that consists of four people. It’s me, my younger brother Michael, and my parents. Michael is an eighth grader at Nagel, and just recently turned 13. My parents work together in their own company where they recruit people for jobs. Also, the two families (the Kotts & Meeks) that live on either side of my house are pretty much like my second family. I am closest with Elizabeth, who is 17, and Sara who is 16. I love to go on different
A heavy Debt What I wanted on summer vacation made me end with a heavy debt on my shoulders. The debt that I haven?t paid off yet to my dad. Buying the PC was a good idea, but I messed it up myself. Last school holiday I had the bright idea to buy a PC, PCs are strong, easy to use, and reliable. I am a guy who wants to experience all fields of gaming, when some people like calm and relaxing games. Others might like driving, sports, strategy games, or some action. For me, I try all types of games, so to do that I have to get myself a PC, and what?s cheaper than building one yourself (at least what it?s normally like).
When I was in third grade my teacher assigned us to write a book titled “All About Me” and just about every word was spelled incorrectly. I remember my teacher reading it and asking what word I was trying to spell out and I got upset. I felt like I
The results of my Strength Quest seem to fall in line with how I perceive myself very well. The 5 signature themes were communication, competition, input, self-assurance, and woo. While there were a few other themes I thought were potentially better fits, these results held up with my personality and actions. One of the emphasized ideas was that these things came naturally to the person, a talent. While this is true of four of these, I had to work on the woo aspect. Originally I was a very shy child and talking to kids was not easy. It was only late on in high school that I began to put myself out there and introduce myself to others. While now it comes naturally it did not before. However, the other four aspects paint a good picture of who

The environment I was raised in shaped me as a Caring person towards others and a non carrying person on others opinion. I was raised in a poor little town in Mexico, it's called Alameda. It's half an hour away from one of Mexico's most known city Guadalajara Jalisco. At
About me: I’ve lived in South Florida all of my life, specifically going back and forth between Miami-Dade county and Broward County. My Mom emigrated from Nicaragua and my dad was raised by North Carolinians which makes for very interesting holiday meals-for Christmas we had Vigorón and Sweet Potato Casserole. I can be persistent if I really, really want something; my mom wouldn't allow me to get a dog so I spent a year taking care of a plush toy in the fifth grade. The good news is that she finally allowed me to adopt Bella, my maltese-a disclaimer: I was eleven-named after the Twilight series (if I had gotten her a year later, I might have named her Katniss, which would be sort of awkward for a dog). I’m still deciding what I want to “be”.
The Constant Battle of Who I’m Told to Be & Who I Had to Convince Myself I Was “I’m a freaking walking paradox”, those lyrics have always stood out to me as rapping artist Earl Sweatshirt spit them out. I’ve always felt I had a very contradicting way of viewing
My approach to any problem or any time where I needed to form an opinion I would usually spend hours researching and thinking any topic over before I would even mention it or attempt to start a debate. This idea was ingrained in me by my father, he was always
Howdy, I am looking for my first gig on this site, and hope you are willing to take a chance on a newby of sorts. I do not have a website or proof of my writing skills, other than this Cover Letter. That doesn't mean I have no experience with either. I do have a rather unusual need for privacy, so I rarely share my information on social sites and whatnot. I took a chance on this site, as I also have a need to be productive, I kinda like to eat, and sorta enjoy the roof over my head.
I think I went through this latest challenge because I likely took on too much work, in such a short period of time. During this time as I was getting more and more stressed out, I isolate myself and stay inside my head. I stopped communicating with my parents about my feelings. This always seems to be one of the first things I do, when I start struggling in a situation; stop talking to my support system. However, after a week of feeling this way and my mom prodding me into opening up to her (because she could tell something was wrong), I finally picked up the phone and called.
Who am I? This is a difficult question to answer. There is so much to write about but I do not know where to start. Maybe I can write about about the important things in my life; my strengths; my uniqueness; my future goals; but I fear that I may fail myself to explain all of it in two or three pages. Even so, I look forward to share these little snippets of my personal life.
Giving up or giving in are two ideas that are difficult for me to comprehend. Growing up, I didn't have a father and my mother had to work all day to provide for me. While my mom tried with all her might to be there for me, it was simply impossible for her to be everywhere at the same time. By having to raise and teach myself, at times, I slowly learned to become independent. I also saw how hard my mom worked which motivated, and still motivates me, to become a better person each day.
