I love my mom and dad very much and spend a lot of time with them. As the youngest in my family I've been able to go on more trips with them than my siblings. So we've had some good times. :) They've always given me good advice and shared great stories with me. I look up to the both of them.
Advice I'd Give My 16 Year-Old Self......
Um well I'm 16 now so instead I'll give my 12 year-old self some advice.
The world does not revolve around you unfortunately.
Don't base your self-worth on your looks.
NEVER compare yourself to others.Your achievements are just as incredible as theirs.
Good friends are important.
No one cares that you have crooked rabbit teeth and fluffy bangs, so get over it.
People are mean sometimes but remember what Grandma would say. " Put some lipstick on and keep your chin up!"
Day Two of the thirty day blogging challenge. Woooo going strong. :)
The challenge is to write about three legitimate I have and how they became fears.
1. Large Bodies of Water
I am terrified of the ocean, any large lakes, rivers, and ponds. I don't tell many people that because it's supposedly an "irrational" fear. But it IS rational, and I will tell you why. I went snorkeling on my trip to Hawaii a few years ago and was having a great time. I swam above the coral and felt confident until the reef ended. It was a straight drop off, the ocean floor was miles down. I panicked and couldn't breathe. My cousin came to my rescue but I've been scared ever since.
Yuck. I hate being alone just because there are too many things that could go wrong. I have this fear because when I was younger and home by myself I choked on Laffy Taffy and seriously almost died. But luckily I saved myself my ramming my torso into the counter until I threw up so yay! : /
GAH. They peck and scratch and attack and just no. Chickens are okay though, only because I grew up with them. I'm really not sure why other birds freak me out but whatever.
