Butterfly project

I've met enough people.
Seldom a human being.
Therefore, I will wait
until my life's purpose
is fulfilled
and you will come.

Though there is anguish
deep in my soul --
what if I must search for you forever? --
I must not lose faith,
I must not lose hope.

The poem made me feel determined because

The Fault In Our Stars

Hazel Grace was diagnosed with thyroid cancer when she was thirteen. Because of this, she also had a lot of water in her lungs. Her condition was getting worse and worse and none of her doctors thought that she would survive much longer. Then, her doctor put her on a new medicine just to see if it could help drain out some of the water in her lungs. It worked and she survived. Now, she is seventeen years old and still wears a cannula. Hazel's mother thinks she is depressed so she is sent to a support group. One day, she sees a boy who was staring at her and she found out his name was Augustus.

Spring break

Over spring break my mom, brother, and I visited family friends. Marlyn knows my mom since high school and been family ever since. Marlyn has 4 boys Joshua (14), Julius (8),Jeremiah (12), and Jacob (10). Also, a daughter named naveah who is 4 years old. Marlyn has a niece (diamond) who is 15 years old but in 8th grade. Marlyn takes care of diamond because of family problems. I hang out more with Josh and diamond because we know each other best. I like going over there to play basketball, the pool, and just in general i love visiting them. The neighborhood is so nice. We went on Thursday around 4 and we catcher up. On Friday, Joshua and Diamond missed school just for us. We went to aurora mall and we shopped. Later, my brother, Diamond, Jeremiah, and Joshua went to the local mall. We just came to look around because me and my brother haven't been there since last year. We bought ice cream and my brother bought adidas shoes. On Saturday, my mom and Marlyn went out to eat on their own. We all stayed home alone and spent time outside playing basketball and it was so fun. Later, we all watched a movie together and had popcorn but I got bored so I went upstairs with Diamond. I went on my phone and finished the last episodes of 13 reasons why. I'm glad I spent my spring break with them because it was so fun and when we left I was so sad that I wanted to go back. It's okay because we are visiting them in the in a week and over the summer.

SOL 31: Completed

31 days of blogging everyday has been successful for my classmates and I. I am proud of each and every one of them. It inspired me to write more on my journal. I shared my blog with friends and family. I still can't believe I changed how someone viewed themselves as. In the beginning, I was planning on only doing 12 days but I did the whole month. Blogging has taught me to express my feelings. Everyone has different opinions about different ideas in the world. I will never give up and will continue to blog.

SOL 30: A best friend

My best friend is Cecilia but I call her Cecy. I've know her since I was 4 so it's been a strong relationship so far. We used to argue over who gets what to toy to play with. We're both mature and haven't had an argument ever since middle school started for both of us. I call her mom my mom and she calls my mom her mom. We both know each other's family's very well and that's important in a friendship. I'm sure she's obsessed with me (not foreal). She is always taking snapchats of me and posts it on her story. Throughout life you will meet one person who is unlike any other. You could talk to this person for hours and never get bored, you could tell them things and they won't judge you. This person is my soulmate, my best friend. I'm never letting go. I believe in my best friend and she will become an independent woman throughout life. I absolutely love my best friend. So much.

SOL 29:

Today I watched my aunts snapchat and it made me happy. Her name is Muriel and she is 30. Muriel loves to workouts and is a positive person. On snapchat she showed her friends how to make green juice. I loved the way she showed all ingredients. She made it look so easy and simple. I haven't been over in a while so I really want to try and make it soon.

SOL 28: I love my scar

Hugo (left) Cookie (right)

This is my favorite picture of my mom and I together with the dogs. In this picture my mom was 27 and I was 8. I love this picture because I braided my hair the night before just to take this picture and my mom curled her hair that same night. Cookie (my dog) had a brother and his name was Hugo. Hugo was a complicated dog. He didn't really listen and he used to bark a lot. Sometimes he would be sweet and sometimes he wasn't. Every time someone would ring the door bell he would bark and we would try to quiet him down. I was trying to keep him from barking and he bit my finger. I was bleeding a lot and ended up with a scar. I don't care about my scar because it didn't ruin me. I understand why Hugo barked and that's why I wasn't mad at Hugo whatsoever. I love my scar and it's the only thing I have left of Hugo.
