But, surprisingly... I did! And lots of them. This was me at the beginning of freshman year. Yeah, I know. It's a miracle I had any friends. Before homecoming at Cheng's buffet, 2009. Thomas Mitchell would probably kill me if he knew I was using this picture, but I couldn't resist. Freshman year Cutting my hair off was one of the dumbest decisions I've ever made. I cried when I looked in the mirror... but at least I still had my friends. Then sophomore year happened. This was just not a good year for me. Something happened that really changed me. I would have terrible anxiety attacks and often would have to call my mom to come pick me up from school. Fortunately for me, I still had close friends to support me through all the hard times. Although I was unhappy that year, you would never know it by looking back at pictures. Freshman year was so fun, so carefree. I had so many friends, everything was so easy... Aside from my friends, one thing that has always kept me going through all the hard times is my favorite band, Fall Out Boy. Although all of their music has a special meaning to me, the song I chose is "I Don't Care". The message of the song is not to care about what people think about you; not to listen to any unkind words said to you. Instead, keep your head up, and find happiness out of your own misery. This message is what helped get me through my sophomore year. The novel that had the most impact on me was definitely the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's about a teenage girl named Katniss Everdeen who has to fight for her survival in a competition called the Hunger Games. However, she's really been fighting ever since her dad died, when she started hunting to provide for her mom and younger sister. This book had such a huge impact on me because it's about a girl with a very strong will to survive, which was the perfect message to me during a difficult time in my life. Junior Year... This year was a pretty big deal for me. A lot had happened since sophomore year, but there were still many lessons to be learned... This was the year that Richard McCrady came into my life. We started dating on April 20th, 2012, and continued dating until halfway through November of my senior year. Whether he meant to or not, Richard taught me the biggest lesson of all, and that is that everything happens for a reason. People come, and people go, but we have to try not to focus only on the negatives. The people in your life are there to teach you life lessons; even if the events that happen along the way may be difficult to deal with, it's all about how you look at it. Always look on the bright side, and stay positive. When crappy things happen, it's only because something great is out there waiting for you - it just hasn't happened yet. Overall, what I have learned over the 1,365 days I've spent in high school is to never give up. Because although it may seem like a lot has happened in the past 4 years, the truth is, my life isn't over yet. In fact, it's only the very beginning. 1365 ProjectFull transcript
