My Life Story
Transcript of My Life Story
My Life Story
I was born on May 1st to my parents Carolyn and Greg Owen. We lived in Albany, OR in a duplex. We had one kitty named Minnesota.
My little sister, Sierrah, was born on June 22nd.
We moved to Sweet Home, OR. We lived in a little white house at the end of 26th avenue on the right.
I made a new friend named Matthew. He was my next door neighbor, and 5ish(?) years older than me. He was like the older brother I never had.
My parents wanted to spend Y2K by themselves, so they sent my sister and I to spend New Year's Eve with our grandparents. My parents never actually got to enjoy themselves because they both got the flu. They called it the, "Y2K Bug".
I am a Junior in high school, I am still in a relationship with Ian, and my best friend is still Sean. My great grandfather passed away in January. I made prom outfits completely out of duct tape for a $5000 scholarship. Salt was hit by a car and had to be put down. We also took a trip to the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, Washington.
The Year 2013!
My brother, Zerin, was born on January 25th. Later in the year, we took a trip to Disneyland in September.
My twin brothers, Jayce and Jarett, were born on February 26th. I started kindergarten this year.
I started first grade at Hawthorne Elementary. Mr. Drummond was my teacher.
I started second grade. Mrs. Lewis was my teacher.
I started third grade. Mrs. Clearwater was my teacher.
I started fourth grade. Mrs. Zwierzyna was my teacher.
I started fifth grade. Mr. Grenz was my teacher.
I started sixth grade. Mr. Long was my teacher. I was also in Band. I went on my second trip to Disneyland, and Minnesota died. She was 16 years old. I was also heavily bullied by two girls in my sixth grade class. I then got a new kitty named Pepper.
My mother pulled me out of public school, and put me in Connections Academy, and online school. Half way into the school year, I begged her to put me back into public school. I came back, and went to Jr. High here in town.
I started 8th grade year. I had a lot of new teachers, and a lot of old teachers. This is where I developed a desire for the company of boys as my friends instead of girls, but I did have a few girl friends. We moved to the "Big Blue House on First" on my 13th birthday.
Started Freshman year of high school. I dated Alex Howard for a while, and he was my first kiss. Then I dated Josh Pickett. Alex is still my friend... Josh not so much.
I met Ian Williams at a church related activity. He caught my eye immediately. I then started Sophomore year at high school, and my best friend is Sean Qualkinbush. We also got two more kitties. One named Salt, and the other Sugar. They are both pure white. In April, my family took a trip to the East Coast. We went to 7 different states, and saw so much history.

Sierrah, my baby sister: A.K.A "Rah Rah"
Me and my kitty, Minnesota.
This is the only picture that I know of that has my tongue sticking out.
When I was younger, and partially today, I could eat and eat and eat. I LOVED to eat. I had no problems with any food, including veggies! My nickname between my family members was "Bottomless-Pit".
My parents Carolyn and Greg.
Even since a child I have had issues with my eyebrows.
My Great Aunt Betty made this quilt for me. In the center (you can't see it in this photo) it says, "A cat is a cat, and that is that." This quilt is still on my bed today.
Half way through gestation.
Because I like to eat so much, I often got into trouble for taking things to eat without permission... and I still do. In this case it is a box of vanilla ice cream, but I have been known to steal an apple or two.
Not only did I get into food, but I also got into other things such as make up. This incident with lipstick happened more than once.
This is the closest I have ever been to a deer. YES this is a LIVE ANIMAL. It is NOT dead. PLUS, it was wild, and not in a zoo. It came onto my grandparents property, and we fed it oats for the horses.
This is my sister chillin'.
For my 1st birthday, I got an entire cake to myself.
I rode my first roller coaster at the age of 3. It was at Circus Circus.
It was "Bring your child to work" day at Hewlett Packard where my father used to work. I wasn't feeling well that day, and ended up puking all of my breakfast into his trash can.
2, 4, & 6:
I learned how to sew on a machine at the ripe old age of three.
I found a pair of scissors in my mothers room, and cut off some of my golden locks. My mom tried to fix it, but eventually she got someone else to do it.
I was in ballet and this was our first performance. I don't really remember what it was about, but I do remember that I was a fairy. My sister was also supposed to be a fairy, but she decided not to do it, so we didn't order her a costume. THEN, the night of the performance, she decided she wanted to dance, so she wore her practice outfit on stage. She didn't used to like performing.
This is my friend Matthew Mosely. He graduated in 2009. He wasn't exactly the best kid, but he was my best friend for a very long time.
For my 4th birthday, I had a "crayon" themed party. I have no idea what I was thinking.
I first learned how to ride a bike without training wheels at around the age of 3, but I didn't get my own bike until 4. Those training wheels in the picture immediately went to my sisters bike, who didn't learn to ride until 9.
We built the garage that was on our property, so Sierrah and I helped dig out the big rocks to help the tractors.
Sierrah and I loved to play dress up. This is just one of the many times where we snuck into our mother's closet and stole her scarves, shoes, and hats.
Jarett had a lot of problems at work, and both him and Jayce had to go to to the emergency room. Jarett had to be put on a life support system because he wasn't fully developed. He was born with only some of his lungs.
First day of kindergarten!
for my 7th birthday, I had a slumber party. Two of the girls that i invited had the exact same pajamas as me.
Sierrah finally learned how to ride a bike
When I was 8 I was baptized.
For my 6th birthday party, we went roller skating at the Lebanon skate rink.
We went to Lake Powell several times, and this is me running into the water, excited to finally be out of the car.
My grandparents lived on a very large property with two horses. The very same property where I was next to the deer.
In second grade, I got glasses.
For my 5th birthday party, it was "Power Puff Girl" themed.
My 8th party was "My Little Pony" themed

My group of friends in 8th grade. None of us know what really happened, but we are all organized by color. Honestly I think it was because the human mind has tendencies to organize things and keep them tidy. Hence, we are all organized.
This is Pepper, my second kitty. He is my cat, and I have to take him with me when I graduate and leave high school. That was the deal my parents made with me when we got him.
This is our new home. We moved in on May 1st. My 13th birthday. My bedroom wasn't finished for a long time, so I slept in my sisters closet for a while on a mattress. Her closet is pretty big.
Between 7th and 8th grade I chopped and dyed my hair.

Also included is the Washington Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and the grave site of John F. Kennedy.
