Hi everyone 🙂 Like the video says, this is me in a two minute nutshell. I could have sat there and just talked for two minutes but I figured that it’s always kind of nicer to hear what other people have to say. What you don’t know about me is that I’m a kid at heart. I love to do silly things. I get my work done when I need to. I don’t party much during the school year but regardless, I’ll always have a smile on my face. Want to know why? I believe that not being happy is a waste of life. I guess you can call that my mantra. I love everyone in my life. I love the people who spoke in the videos because I know they’re being genuine. I love the guys in the pictures; all of them are considered the bro. In order of the pictures, that’s Ben – a guy I’ve known since the fifth grade. Kyle’s next, one of the coolest guys I know. Chris is after, one of the most thoughtful people in the world. Lastly, Q, my best friend, my Sunshine, someone who has protected me since we first met and one of the most important people in my life. Oh, and there’s Paulie, my teddy bear, who I’m extremely attached to even though I’m 18. My grandmother is the most important person in my life – she passed away August 2009 but was a breast cancer survivor and she’s the reason why my life’s goal is to be a successful business woman one day and be able to create a charity that promotes cancer awareness. I don’t know what else to say, I’m never really good at explaining my personality, I suppose that’s why I had my friends do it.
My friends tell me that I have a really big heart made of gold. I never believe it but I strive to be like that. I don’t want anyone to ever feel like they’re less than what they are. I want to be that person who people can go to if they need it, because I’d want someone like that.
I guess little things about me are I like to cook. My favorite movie is RENT. I love bursting out into song. My friend Gabby and I dance to the music that’s blasting in my car whenever we’re at a red light. I like to blow bubbles. I was ranked #14 in high school, was nominated onto the Homecoming Court, was Class President, and was voted Most School Spirit. Of course, I had to have school spirit, my bros all made sure that I was at all of their home games for whatever sport they played. Whenever I take on a challenge, I want to do it to the best of my ability. I don’t “half ass” anything. That’s how I hurt my knee by the way everyone – I went a little too hard on my workouts so now I need physical therapy >< Oh well, c’est la vie.
Click on the “show playlist” arrow/button to see my list of 10 songs.
1. 2Pac-Never Had A Friend Like Me
This song shows how i can be a great friend. “Down with you to the very end, cause you ain’t never had a friend like me.” All of my close friends know that I’ll always be there for them no matter what.
2. Mos Def-Travellin’ Man
“Whether things are good or bad, it’s just the memories.” One goal in my life is to live it to the fullest and make the greatest memories possible. Precious moments are what I cherish most.
3. A Tribe Called Quest-Stressed Out
“I really know how it feels to be stressed out, stressed out. We’re gonna make this thing work out eventually.” All my life I’ve been stressed but I know that it’s all for my own good. Eventually things will fall into place and my life will be stress-free.
4. 2Pac-Unconditional Love
“Whether you wrong or you right, I’ma still love you, still feel you, still there for you. No matter what, you will always be in my heart, with unconditional love.” I know that there will always be people encouraging and supporting me along the way. Unconditional love is a necessity in my life.
5. WuTang Clan-CREAM
CREAM is an acronym for “cash rules everything around me.” This is an important saying in my life because money is a main factor in everybody’s life. It’s the reason I try so hard to succeed. Money is always on my mind when i make big decisions. It’s the reason why I chose go into business.
6. Nas-I Can
“You can be anything in the world, in God we trust. An architect, doctor, maybe an actress. But nothing comes easy it takes much practice.” If I doubt myself I remember that I can be whatever I put my mind to.
“So when right go wrong, just say a little prayer, get ya money man, life go on!!! Let’s hope!” I always remind myself that no matter what happens, life will still go on and I just have to hope for the best.
8. Bob Marley-One Love
One dream that I have is that there would be peace on earth. I know that it’s quite impossible to achieve but “Let’s get together and feel all right.”
9. 2Pac-Me Against The World
There’s so much competition nowadays to become successful and it feels as if it’s only me against everybody else. I accept that and I keep my head up and handle it.
10. Kid Cudi-Pursuit Of Happiness
I think everybody can agree that the main goal in life is to find true happiness. “I’m on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shine ain’t always gonna be gold. I’ll be fine once I get it, I’ll be good.”
