Mother Knows Best 

As I watched my mom cook in the kitchen as I always do and in my mind I know I can 

learn how to cook but my body is afraid that I will make a mistake or burn myself if not handled 

carefully. Cooking on a hot stove with steam rising from the pots and pans made it seem like a 

challenge for me to accomplish this task,but practice makes perfect .The only simplest thing that

was could be made was a grilled cheese and I listened to my mom’s words and followed her 

step by step , surprisingly it was that easy that I was excited to do it again next time . As soon as i got that out of the way, I thought to myself Why was I so afraid to do this ? My mom always has me help her cook and she tells me step by step what to do and every time I 

get shocked on how one day I can do this and I love to spend time with my mom in the kitchen 

when I can . Besides the fact of my mom showing me how to cook and such,my mom in general

taught me the biggest thing in my life and thats how to be happy, My mom makes a good 

examples of being a motherly role model of what I need in order to be a  happy ,independent 

woman and that I can do the impossible and still feel like I’m on the top of the world. Love is the 

most important element in my perspective and I know that my mom defines love as she 

expresses it by showing it through all three of her children and from that I know my destiny is to 

pass on my love to my future life and family. My accomplishments are not done yet and I still 

have more to learn but I know there is one thing my mom taught me to do is that if you put your 

mind to anything you can be successful and as day by day I try to do my best on remembering 

her words for which have been my light through the darkness and i thank my mom for being the 

hand that reached out to me when i was trapped inside my struggles of learning new things . My

mom and I have a bond that is yet to continue on for eternity and everyone out there has that 

one person in their life that leads them into the right direction or shows them on how things work

in a different way and I am ready to plan out my future and show the world what I can achieve .


Its All Worth It In The End ! 

When you enter high school as a freshman , you’re going to feel a little bit 

nervous with a big school filled with hundreds of students and you may feel lost at first 

but once you find some friends or meet new friends , you may just be okay. From  experience from when I was    a freshman I did not know what to expect and having  classes that was going to start my journey of my life . At the beginning of the year until 

the end of the year you are going to mess around and not focus on your school work 

and may or may not pass a class that you hated and end up retaking that class because 

the lack of being lazy and not caring about your assignments . Sophomore year will be 

the next step in high school for which re­taking classes you failed your freshman year or 

a class relatable to it but if it does not click your mind that you need to pass the classes 

sophomore and not retake anything , then you need to get help A.S.A.P. My sophomore 

year  a struggle and it felt like I did not know any of the lessons because I fooled around 

my freshman and I did not bother to pay attention to the lessons but I knew that I 

needed to pay attention at that moment so I can fill in the blanks of what I missed my 

freshman year. The next step in high school is Junior year and this is the 2nd most 

important year of your life because it’s close to the next  year of which is the  ending of 

your journey. If you want you can join any clubs or volunteer and it can be a time to 

remember your Junior year as the time when you met new people and had a the time of 

your life . When I was a junior I would see the Seniors as they were getting prepared for 

their time and I always imagine my time as a Senior and the feelings of graduating high 

school after 4 painful years of struggles and stress. High school is not what you see in 

movies where everyone is friends with each other or no one gets hurt or have the 

feeling of being left out of the crowd, once in your life in high school you will experience 

heartbreaking from your first love , the lost of your best friend(s) or even from not 

belonging to a certain clique. I experienced a lot of hearts breaks and I never 

understood why it had to happen but I did know that I had to move on and find a better 

opportunity for me and I did . The number one goal you need to keep in mind is be 

different ! Being different is not a bad thing it makes you the red rose out of a white rose 

garden and it also represents  on who you really are and showing off your true colors . 

Senior year can’t be defined in any other way besides as the race against time.The 

classes you get for Senior year are nothing compared to what you had from Freshman 

year and hopefully you have learned a lot since Freshman year and now you this time 

you can’t legitimate waste any time at all or fool around . There’s no many things to get 

done in little time and it’s gonna be the challenge that is going to make you rip your hair 

out or go insane but once the time has arrived for you to finally let go all of those years 

of pain, stress and tears of struggling, there is going to be this big weight lifted off of 

your chest that was weighing you down for 4 years and once you get have that diploma 

in your hand , you will scream out to the sky ‘’I DID IT! ‘’. My time is here and so will 

yours don’t regret any mistakes from the start just do it at that moment so you can move  forward with confidence and with power …IT’S ALL WORTH IT IN THE END


The relationship between me and my boyfriend is more than romance . We teach 

other new things and learn new things and surprisingly when it comes to hm being 

around me while I work , I never get distracted and i stay on focus. Our goals in life 

have very high standards of getting an educated life and becoming successful and we 

help each other get to that destination. I know as a relationship you would think that we 

are just a couple of young kids that are in love and have commitments towards each 

other and having a future life together ,but not with us its more of a plan we have and 

we want to accomplish those plans by getting our lives started . Parents would 

sometimes think by having a girlfriend or boyfriend the grades would be dropping and 

not caring about school but its the opposite and our grades increases and if we have a 

bad grade in a class , we motivate each other to get back and keep going. I love being 

in a educated relationship and having a future ahead of us and knowing we can become 

something successful in life for which i know one day we will if we put our minds to it . 

Being supported with one another gives us the ability to have confidence and the 

energy to not give up on ourselves and not think we’re failures in life . I always tell my 

boyfriend he is not a failure and he can do it because he is smart and unique , but it 

takes time for those words to get through his mind until he believes it . When it comes to 

me I can be very stubborn when someone tells me to do something or to believe in 

something that they want me to know and make it brainwash into my mind over and 

over again until I do something about it so I don’t have to deal with it or remember it . In 

other words, being in a relationship isn’t all about lovey dovey moments , it can also be 

times to be serious and get an education for ourselves and become a very successful 

person with a good job or career and possibly a lot of opportunities coming along our 

paths so in theory being in a relationship can be the answer for your problems.
