Enjoy this little fraction of myself given life one the internet.
Self and Family
My Family, Friends, and Me
I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I lived on the border of the Brown Deer county and Milwaukee area. I went to the Whitefish Bay school distract thanks to the 2-20 program. The school was mostly white, so my friend group wasn’t the most diverse. My brother and sister also went to the same distract, they’re twins and are 3 years younger than me. I love and dislike them both at the same time. The girl is stubborn and sneaky, the boy is whiny and annoying, but I still love them. They’re both pretty silly like me, so I guess that makes up for their faults. Some of my favorite types of foods would have to be Mexican food and Soul food the flavor both food genres(?) bring to your tongue are amazing. My parents work very hard. My dad has to wake up very early in the morning to drive the city buses all day, while my mom works at university; which is where I’m currently working at and writing this.
Hobbies, talents, and goals
Getting past final exams. It was tough, the history exam required a lot of research, which I then had to place on a slide show. And he only way I could get full credit is if I presented in front of the entire class. To be honest I was kind of crunching it when it came to time, so when I found out I got an A I was happily surprised. For hobbies and during my free time, I mostly play video games, or watch tv. I mostly play action, shooter, fighting, and/or fantasy games. The things I watch on tv heavily vary depending on my mood. I also hang out with friends from time to time, I would definitely like to hang out with my friends more often now especially since it’s summer time now. When I do hang out with friends we still usually play video games. A goal of mines I would like to achieve before I exit Highschool is getting a job. For experience and stuff like that. I know I’m doing the earn & Learn program but this is more of paid internship, which I am very glad I’m doing, but getting another type job would be nice. You know going through the whole writing a resume, going through an interview, all that stuff. One of my talents are, I’m pretty decent at drawing. I more so use it when I’m bored. I got into drawing throughout elementary school and slowly got better at it throughout the years, once I got a digital app to draw on it brought my skills to the next level.
My Highschool & what I like about it
I go to Nicolet Highschool. I just finished my freshmen year last month, and I’d say my first year of high school went pretty well. I mad a ton of new friends, learned a bunch of cool stuff, I even did track! I would have to say my favorite subject in school, is biology. The topics and information we learn in there is very interesting. Things like how cells multiply, how your body replicates DNA, how atoms work, genetic engineering, elements, and combinations on the periodic table were all very interesting things to learn. Biology just has lot of interesting things to learn about in biology. It also explains a bunch of everyday things you see too. One of the reasons I like my school, is because it’s very diverse. Unlike my last school at Whitefish Bay, which (as the name states) was mostly white. Now although the diversity in my school is a very great thing, BUT That’s not my favorite thing. My favorite thing about my school is the different “interesting” personalities. My friends here all have very unique personalities, which makes school fun, and not so dull.
Cool stuff I learned in school
With power on genetic engineering in few years we might be able to make babies. Well, were already able to do that. But, with genetic engineering you’ll be able to remove and add traits to the baby before its born. For example does your family constantly pass down the same genetic trait of sickle cell, and you don’t want your kid to suffer from this disease, well don’t worry! We’ll just cut into the embryo remove the gene that carries that disease and your child will be just fine. You want your kid to have massive feet, we’ll just add a gene for massive feet. ( DISCLAIMER: I am highly oversimplifying the concept of genetic engineering, and I have no idea how close we are to perfecting or having this branch of science released to the public)
I did track during my first year of highschool, and I did a surprisingly good job. I mostly ran 100m sprint and 100m relay and I’ve done a pretty good job in both; I even got 1st place one time. I also did 200m sprint and 200m relay but I don’t have the endurance to run all the way through without slowing down. So I learned how fast I really am, so that was cool.
School lunch is a step above prison food, the cheese has the consistency of glue, the burgers are bland and don’t have a lot of meat, the fries . . . are actually kind of good, but the sloppy joe gave my friend food poisoning, the chicken tenders are bland. What makes it even worse . . . there all over priced. Those garbage burgers cost a whole 6 dollars with the fries its another 5 dollars, and if you want something to drink you pay another dollar. These lunch ladies are robbing with whole smile on there face. Stay away from school lunch, no matter what! (DISCLAIMER: The school lunch is bad, but it not that bad. Like I said the fries are pretty good, and there spicy and BBQ chick, ain’t that bad. Plus the lunch ladies are nice.)
Thoughts on Highschool
My definition of a good teacher would have to be one that’s good at teaching (Obviously), they have to be able to clearly explain the material they’re trying to teach. The teacher must be willing to help students that don’t understand the material first time around. If the teacher gets mad when you don’t understand something, that’s not going to help. A teacher must also want the best for their students; they must truly want their student to succeed. And last, but not least, just be kind. don’t be a jerk. One of things I’m going to miss about High school is my friends. We’re eventually going to have to split up after Highschool ends. Going to college, following our dreams, fulfilling our own destinies. We’re not going to stay together all the time. All my friends with their unique personalities are going to leave, and so am I. Of course, we’ll stay in contact. But not being able to physically talk to them isn’t going to be fun. One of my favorite memories of high school was the final exams for Spanish class. We had to do a group project for making a drama themed short film, all spoken in Spanish. We also had to make a script with required words from different Spanish subjects throughout the year. All you need to know is that we made a silly plot for the film. We tried to make it as dramatic as possible, and we had a lot of fun making the film. Plus, we got an “A” on the project, so that was pretty cool. A funny story that happened in high school, it was the last day of school and I was on my phone playing a game waiting for school to get out. I’m playing this game where you’re driving this car away from a horde of police cars. My friends start to huddle around me to see what I’m playing because the game is so busted. The police cars will just drive into you at their terminal velocity, sending you and them flying. They’ll completely disregard human lives, including the players, their fellow police cars, and civilians that line the streets. They’ll cause all this collateral damage just to get to you. I don’t know. The game was just fun to watch and play with how janky it all was.
Would you work for the high school you will graduate from?
Absolutely not. I like the school as a student. But if I was a teacher, it would be a pain. Plus, I’d be a terrible teacher. I would tell the class to settle down and be quiet 3 times, and if they aren’t quiet after that, someone’s getting knocked into silence. I just don’t have the tolerance, nor patience to deal with kids, let alone teenagers.
Hobbies and Talents
My Hobby of Playing Video games
A Hobby I have is playing video games. Action games, adventure games, shooter games, fighter games. I play video games because they’re just plain fun. You can go on seven different adventures, with different friends and environments, all within the confines of your home. I want to say I’ve been playing video games since I was three. I’m not really sure how I got into video games. I know my dad had a PlayStation 3, and I guess one day I wanted to try it out after he was playing it. I’m not fully sure what my first experience with video games was, but I do remember some of my earlier experiences with them were. Some games I played as a kid were, Toy Story 3 the video game, Bolt the video game, The amazing Spider-Man 2 the video game, and a lot of Lego video games. Some video games I play now, is God of War, Terraria, Elden Ring, Call of Duty, and a bunch of other stuff. One thing I would like to try speed running for video games. In case you don’t know what speed running is it’s basically you try to complete and beat a video game as fast as possible. You can do glitches to skip certain parts of the game, or use your skill to get past levels faster. There’s a whole website and community surrounded by the idea of speed running. There ae people who hold world recorders for beating certain games the fastest and leaderboards and stuff like that. Do I think or even plan that I’ll get a world record for a game? No. Does it seem fun to at least try? Absolutely.
My talent in drawing
A talent I have is drawing. I like drawing because it’s a nice creative outlet and allows me to create whatever I want. I draw things like stuff from video games, events, altered stuff from real life (ex: I drew a cyborg version of my (possibly) dead bird), or just random stuff that pops into my head at the moment. I just like bringing ideas in my head to life, that’s why I like drawing. My talent with drawing started more so in elementary school during K4. So, in K4 we had this activity where the students would write about our day, and we would have to draw a picture with it. But I found our day too boring, all I did was learn about shapes and play with toys all day. So instead of writing about what we did today, I would write about a random story that popped into my head, then draw about said story. Of course, the drawings were garbage, but I didn’t care I was having fun making these little stories and drawings. Throughout the later years I kept drawing. When I’d get bored in school; I’d draw. A cool idea popped into my head; I’d draw. I guess you could imagine after all these years, and drawings, I’d get better at drawing. Which I did. I’m not the best artist, but I’d say I’m pretty good. I’ve even made my own unique style, and I also have a few standout star drawings, that I think are my most exceptional works.
My heroes are my parents. They both had a rough childhood, yet they were both able to pull through and stay strong, and eventually raise me and my siblings into who we are today. One of the most important things they’ve taught me is to never give up. Even if you fall down or fail, you have to keep on pushing. Because failure is falling down, failure is falling down and not getting back up. I’d like to keep their resilience and determination, their strength. I want these qualities because it’s one of the ways they have succeeded in their journey through life. If I could say a speech to them, I’d probably just thank them. For raising me and my siblings, for doing their best each and every day, always trying to be the best parents that they can be. I’d tell them I love them for that, and everything else that they’ve did
Lesson learned from Him:
What do you want your legacy to be, and whatever you want it to be, you have to work for it.
Lesson learned from her:
Once you get a taste of freedom don’t throw away your responsibility.
