One fact that most people don’t know about me is that I strive to be different because normal people bore me. I view myself as a deep human being with a unique passion for art and diversity, and if that is unnoticed then they clearly don’t know me well enough. When others ask me about my personality and the way I act I tell them the cold, hard truth, because if I tell them anything else but the truth, I would just be lying to myself. I view the world in strange ways, I write poetry about events or feelings that only I would comprehend, and I strongly believe that if the individuals of the world try hard enough that one day the world will finally be at peace.
Even though I am only at the age of fourteen I know a lot about life. I know to be thankful for what I have even though it might not be so great at times. I know that somewhere out in the world there is a child without parents, a child that doesn’t have as well of an education as I do, some that might not even have a roof over their heads nor clothes on their backs, but I have all those wonderful things. If I could I would call that number on the television that pops up, and send that thirty dollars ever month to give another human that as the same rights and same dreams as me, just to make them happier and smile a little bit more in their lives. The greatest feeling is when you make a difference for the better. When I am old enough and ready I am going to adopt a child because I don’t see the point of bringing another life into this hectic world when there are some that deserve a better life. I would care for that child like it was my own, because I know what it feels like to lack being loved at one time or another.
My home life can be a riot and a bit chaotic periodically, but I have met some magnificent people to help me get through it all. There is one person that I think of when i hear the word hero. They enter into my mind in a blind of an eye. That person would have to be my dad. He always puts his loved ones before him. When I am sad he comforts me as much as a father could help his teenage daughter. After a tight bear hug I would look into his eyes and they would scream, “i am sorry you have to go through this!” In a sixth grade heroes report I wrote about my dad and how much I would miss him if anything was to ever happen to him. I described him as an angel without wings and to this day I still stand behind that. I have another hero that I never expected to end up being one of the few people I would die for. Never did I anticipate such a connection with this inspiring person. It was more then just a student to teacher friendly acquaintance, he was considered apart of my family. Mr Filipek is the only teacher I have ever felt completely safe to express my feelings to without being judged. The last hero that I will always have in my heart is truly my best friend, Curtis. Even though he lives in Canada, I tell him everything. He understands me like no one else does. I believe the reason we have such a sturdy bond is because he goes through the same pain. Curtis is like that only guy that walks into your life when the rest of the world walks out and for that he will always be like a brother to me. I had to talk about these three genuinely big hearted people because without them I would be missing a little piece of me.
As you already have read, I love art, writing, and basically anything that can get my creativity level up. I write from the heart, but even though I write so much I am not a good speller at all. Spelling would probably be one of my main weaknesses. Another bad habit that I sadly have is that I am a procrastinator. I wait for everything last minute which is why I think last year was a total failure. Last year I focused on less important things like then school which is why I am more determined to be a success this year. If I am forced to do something then I wont put my all into it. Since I like more hands on activities, in the future I am planning on being either a photographer or a teacher of some sort. I would like to be a photographer because I refuse to go through life unnoticed. I want my photographs to mean something, not just some random photos of a model sitting there smiling. Last of all, my most recent achievement is that I have finally come out of my shell and ready to show the world what I am capable of. I am going to be an individual, I am going to stand out and be proud of my work, but most importantly I am going to do it now, not tomorrow.
