I am from my dada and mommy.
From a sickening J.F.K. Hospital to the the loving arms of my family.
I am from an old house with a pointy tree to a hammock between two skinny twigs on a grassy hill.
From playing Power Rangers on the dinning room table to laying upside down on the couch watching MTV.
I am from hearing my mom's nursey and lullaby songs to hearing J-POP and R&B music artists.

I am from being pinched by my grandparent's old hands to playful punches from fantastic best friends.
I am from celebrating Chinese New Year in bright red envelopes to partying all night with my crazy amazing best friends.
I am from teasing or being teased by my wonderful cousins to mature freshman at South Plainfield High.
I am reading "Arthur" books by Marc Brown to "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyey.

From home-cooked Vietnamese family meals to lonesome fast-food dinner on the huge lamella.
I am from wearing girly pink pajama outfits to awesome jeansthat my cousins lend me after The Great Snowfall War.
From dancing to Seasame Street songs with my hyper-active cousins to graduating five years of Pennstate or Columbia and living in a loft with two or three best friends or family members.

I am from tough times to happy moments.
From many hurtful tears to thousands of outstanding smiles.
I am from my first heartbreak to my cousin's hilarious pranks and jokes.
From family to friends.
Good people will always stick by your side.

Favorite Quote:
A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.
Robert Frost

THis is really good but could benefit from some trimming and more descriptive language that explores a whole new plain of the developement from child to adult (I'm only 15, what do I know?)
