Two years ago at this time, I would have never expected to be sobbing over my green hoodie which had become a major part of my previous relationship. Two years ago I was happy and I thought that that would never change, but others were getting hurt while I was sitting there, content with what was happening around me. During this time it was homecoming, and I was asked by this cute girl that I wanted to be with forever, even though forever ending up lasting only a year and eight months. During homecoming everything was innocent, and eventually in October we were together officially. Around this time it was getting pretty chilly outside, so I decided to give her my jacket.

In fourth grade, I got a letter from Jule’s mom asking me to come over for a playdate. I eagerly gave it to my mom and begged her to go. She devastatingly told me, or so I thought, that I was too busy to fit in with Jule’s schedule. I was crushed and felt guilty because I had not been able to see Jules a lot in school anymore. I had always had this looming feeling of regret for not going because Jules was a great friend to me and we both understood each

Maj. Chris Faris talked about was the affect that war had on his and his daughter’s relationship. The talk he had with his daughter allowed him to see the pain and hurt that comes from him being away at performing his military duty. His daughter, now 118 years old, reminded him of the last time he was home for her birthday, which at that time she was 10 years old.

After my grandmother’s sister died about 2 years ago, I started calling and visiting my grandmother a little more because I realized that she is not going to be here forever. While I can agree that aging is fabulous, I just want to cherish the time that I have with her. My grandmother’s advice to young people really makes my emotional.

It is amazing to think about how I have the opportunity to graduate college and my grandmother never graduated high school and learned to read at the age of 50.

I knew then that I had to audition again. The whole process of trying out for Rangerettes helped me grow in ways I never knew possible. I am much more humble and I appreciate everything that’s given to me and never do I take a moment for granted.
