Luckily nothing extreme happen to me, I stayed away from things that will put me in danger like the rides at the water parks. Few years later I wanted to make a change in my life and have my son live a better life. So I attended a local college I thought the one class per month and one subject per day was the best thing I could have done but it was more work than I thought it would be it took me three months to finish one class. In about two years I got pregnant again with my daughter that’s when I said its over how could I get through life with two kids being a single mother.
In paragraph 31, her mom asked her to make friends, but the daughter doesn’t see the point of it. She says she never has time for friends. She also tells mother that they have to move every few months so there's no point. Some more evidence is found in paragraph 24 when she doesn’t want to stay in New Mexico for the summer. The daughter feels like it's a world away from California.
The summer before the start of my freshman year in high school I had a major incident that I had to overcome. Before this event, baseball was my favorite sport and I have been playing it since I was 5 years old. I had torn my rotator cuff about 6 years ago which resulted in me sitting out for about a year. I was in middle school, but decided not to tryout for the school team, instead I played in a less competitive junior league. I played it for two years and thought my baseball career was over until I joined the Mountain Pointe Warriors summer team.
It took me a whole year in college to realize that firefighting was something I did not want to pursue. Desperately looking for a new major, I started to consider teaching, but purely for selfish reasons. However, somewhere during my second year of college, there was a significant spark that led me to want to pursue teaching for a different reason. In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial.
I remember the day I received a little yellow paper that said, “Cinthia Gordillo you are eligible to participate in commencement.” I started tearing up because I knew that I had accomplished one of my dreams as well as my mother’s dream. My mom decided to leave her home town in Honduras because of the lack of jobs and violence. I was born in Madera, CA four months after my mom migrated to California. Growing up my mom emphasized the importance of education however, out of her six children I was the first one who decided to pursue a higher education.
Thomas broke up with me once he was accepted into college at the University of California Santa Barbara. He was going to be moving across the country, and I was going to be a senior in high school trying to figure out where I wanted to go to college. At the time he got accepted, I was falling in love with Thomas, but never told him. I was way too young and naive to tell him I loved him, and he knew this. On New Year’s Eve, Thomas told me there’s a pursuer and a settler in every relationship.
I enrolled in college not knowing what exactly to expect and with many doubts but by taking that gigantic leap out of my comfort zone, my life has changed drastically. In high school, I was never the type of student to strive for A’s or to be on the honor roll. My siblings were the ones who did great in school with minimum effort but I struggled and often became discouraged. I remember vividly telling my mother I was going to drop out in the ninth grade.
“For how long did she say I will get to stay there and when do I leave” I asked “She said she will need help for the whole summer so you will leave right away when school ends” answered mom That summer changed me into a better person. Before I got the exciting news about me babysitting I was always shy and did not talk much. But since I did not know anyone except my great aunt Maria, I was so scared and I honestly did not know what or who to expect. All I knew was that the couple had three kids; a one year old, a two year old, and a twelve year old.
In high school, I was engaged in a variety of elective classes and extracurricular activities. I never considered myself a superb student, but I had a thirst for any information that I could get my eyes on. My plans to become a U.S. Marine were nearly confirmed throughout my Junior and Senior years of high school, but I continued to find myself enrolled in the most challenging courses offered at my small, private school. Apart from classes, I was passionate about percussion and, in particular, our school’s budding drum line program, which had its inaugural session during my eighth grade year.
I feel fear a lot of the time because Turning 18 is really scary actually I mean all my life I just wanted to grow up and move out especially since my dad died and once it came down to it and my sister told me that I had to because her cousin wants to sell the house. It really hit me hard. Money is a huge stressor for me , I just want to be able to have enough money to pay for a roof over my head and a car. I just want to make it
Rivera. Session1.Journal What made me want to go back to school was that I didn 't have anything else going for me after high school. I had two beautiful children in the process. I couldn 't find a job or anything it was hard on my own.
In May two-thousand fifteen i completed my seventh grade year at my new school Watkins Memorial Middle school, it was my first time ever moving schools . Before i came to Watkins Memorial Middle school i went to Hamilton Township . I went there my whole life until i moved , i went to Hamilton Elementary for four years from kindergarten through third grade , then i went to Hamilton Intermediate School for three years from fourth grade through sixth grade . After sixth grade over summer break my mom enrolled me into the Southwest Licking School District at Watkins Memorial Middle School .

My entire life has been me looking forward. Always looking forward and rarely looking back. Learning from past occurrences and planning the next; I have been a sure handed planner all my life. When I was younger my maturity of very advanced for my age, therefore I only had a select few friends. This helped me keep a level head and remain focused.
So much has happened to me in my 14 years of living! I’ve changed schools twice, made the Rocky Mountain Ballroom team, and met my best friends ever in the 2nd grade. So much more has happened in my life but these are some of the best things! All of these have helped me get through thick and thin. Changing schools the first time was pretty rough.
“You guys ready?” , my mom asked us as she closed the moving truck and hops in the front seat. As I load my bag in the truck, I remember facing the continuous struggles of moving. Growing up, I constantly moved from state to state, and being so young in the processes just caused a lot of stress in my life.
