S: Be your own Hero
FC: Be your own hero | There is a time for everything and a season for everything under heaven A time to be born and a time to die A time to tear down and a time to build A time to weep and a time to laugh A time to scatter stones and a time to embrace them a time to search and a time to give up a time to keep and a time to throw away A time to tear and a time to mend A time to be silent and a time to speak And a time to love and a time to hate Ecclesiastes 3

2: Prologue | "Be your own hero" is the main quote from one of my favorite movies, Whip it. In the movie the main character is in awe at the hardcore roller girls. She tells them "You guys are my hero" and one of them tells her "Why don't you be your own hero". Not only am I into roller derby but this quote inspires me. I think we say "I wish" too much but we don't do. If you wish, then why don't you do it? Stop admiring other people and start being who you want to be. I'm on my journey on creating myself to one day be my own hero. This book captures some of the moments that make me who i am today, and what I've created myself to be...So far.

11: M | M | My Bucket List Skydive 4 mission trips Own a wall where i can paint, draw, spray paint anything on in my house Own a hair salon or restaurant Go to the Great Coral Reef in Australia Live in California Get one tattoo Get one piercing Change someones life Turn someone to Jesus Write a short novel Take a vacation with close friends Adopt a deaf child | Before i am 35 i would like to be able to completely support myself. This is my ultimate goal because i think its essential for an individual, especially a woman to be able to completely support themselves so they don't get in difficult situations or have to relay on someone else | Bye-Bye As a military child and a normal teenager I've been through many stages. It almost feels as if some of my "lives" never existed because they are all gone, i don't live there or have contact with anyone. Sometimes past experiences seem like a dream. Thats what moving feels like. Compared to normal teenage puberty stages moving has been way more difficult. Its like starting all over again, which isn't all bad. Sometimes its nice to have a new start so you don't make same mistakes:)
12: My Room | My room is very much a reflection of me. I have a reversible comforter one side is zebra print while the other is pink cheetah print, this shows i love change. When i get bored i just flip over my comforter and it changes the whole appearance of my room. I have black furniture which is my favorite color because i can jazz it up with accessories. (such as my vibrant comforter) I also have a huge conferable bed, i love to sleep. My walls are yellow, i hate yellow. This reflect how lazy i am to repaint my room. My closet is huge and my drawers are abundant, the mall could be my second home. Shopping is my passion and i need room to put all my clothes away!
13: My room also has a taste of my past like my Mardi Gras mask. I lived in Biloxi Mississippi for 5 years when i was a little girl. My most vivid memory is Mardi Gras, going to parades, getting beads and candy, getting purple yellow and green cake. It was a big part of my childhood. Another big part of me is hanging on my wall, a sketch of me and my best friend, Angela F. We share everything, including names, and even braces in our smiling pictures. Everytime i see that picture i remember how grateful i am for true friends.
14: My Pet, Ellie the Elephant | I have an Elephant, her name is Ellie. We have picnics together, and we have grape jelly. Sometimes she gives me a ride On her great big back I wish i could ride other animals but thats what they lack. Sometimes after I'm out all day I come home tired and dirty from play and i just want to hit the hay And my faithful pet Ellie, Comes to my side She takes her big trunk and sprays me with water so i can go inside But my poor baby Ellie Cant fit in the house I would love to have her with me
15: Just like my pet mouse But i built barn for her' just outside my wall. So its only like she's just across the hall. But sometimes my Ellie gets lonely at night and sometimes strange noises give her a fright So because i love Ellie i bought her a friend Another pet with time she can spend So now i have two pets an elephant and panda i cant wait til tomorrow To play with Ellie and Amanda.
16: One Medium Suitcase | I would take my cell phone for contact so i can maintain relationships and make new relationships. I would also take my Charger for my phone so i can use it every day. Along with my itouch for music and entertainment and my charger for my itouch. I would take my gray skinny jeans, my torn blue jeans, my black jeans, and my white jeans. All my purple shirts and my black jacket for clothes and warmth when it gets cold. I would also take my straightener and brush because messy hair annoys me greatly. My wallet with all my life savings would come along with me as well so i can get a hump start on my future and have some cash. My jewelry would join me as well so i can accessorize. Last but not least my favorite stuff animal would be an essential because she makes me feel safe.
