Favorite Quote:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Everyone is making bets on my life...my life. Just because I like a little more people than normal. But just because I like a lot of people, and I fall to hard and fast doesn’t mean I’m going to end up 16 and pregnant. So stop making bets on me, I’m not a horse or a sports team! I wish people can just look at me for my personality. Boy, I can’t wait till I’m sixteen, and I’m on honor roll, or I’m head of the softball or volleyball tea1m or chosen as class clown, there are other things on my mind besides “it”. Even if people were too lazy to get to know me, just as a person, then they should at least realize that I’m smart. Book and street smart. Smart enough that next year, I’ll be starting high school with three honors classes. Also I have dreams and goals, for high school and my life. If you got to know me, even after reading this, would you place a bet on me?
