BC: The End
FC: My Senior Memory Book
1: Time you enjoyed wasting with friends wasn't really wasted. - John Lennon
2: My name is Mitchell Abraham. I have lived in Canadian, Texas with my family my entire life. I have 7 other siblings and my mom and dad. My life goals are to become a film director and producer. I will be attending Notre Dame University where I intend to double major in film and business. I then plan on starting to make my own films from there and also producing other peoples films. I also really wanna be able to eventually start up my own production company.
4: My parents are Salem and Ruth Ann Abraham. I have 7 siblings. They are Kate, Claire, Robert, Ann Marie, Grace, Ellen, and George.
5: Whenever I was younger, I was constantly on the move. I was constantly playing outside trying out everything I possibly could from riding a bike to playing football with my dad. However, you could also find me lounging in front of the tv watching movies and developing what would soon become my passion. I especially loved watching the Sandlot, the Jungle Book, and Aladdin.
6: I was extremely afraid to enter school at first. I never liked the idea of leaving my home to go to a foreign place where the cafeteria smelled as bad as the food tasted, but I soon began to love it. I was an avid reader in elementary school. I especially loved the Harry Potter series which Kate had introduced me to. My best friend was Isaac Lewis and my cousin Luke back then. My favorite teachers back then were probably Mrs. Bentley and Mrs. Shields.
7: 4th and 5th Grade was definitely harder than my earlier school years. To be honest, 5th grade might rival my junior year for my hardest year in school. It was probably the shock of having to do real hard work for the first time in my school career. However, I started to make new friends and discover who I was. Deven Carson and Richie Northcott became my real close friends. I also began to discover that I preferred English over Math and many more things. I also found out that i didn't particularly like science either...
8: I have lived in Canadian, Texas all of my life. I grew up in our house on Cheyenne Street. My neighborhood has always been a really fun one. At any time there is usually 4-6 kids at my house that don't live here. Whether its some of my friends, or neighborhood kids over to play with the little kids, our house is constantly alive. Our comunity is also made up with a ton of amazing people. I really have loved growing up here.
9: Whenever I was growing up, my sister and I made up a game called cops and robbers. The game is essentially tag on bikes. If your tagged, or if your tire gets hit, by a cops bicycle you have to go to jail. If one of the other robbers comes and tags you while your in jail, your allowed to attempt to make an escape. We usually played it on our patio, so you couldn't ever roam that far away. In the end though, the 1 or 2 cops usually won.
10: My first real crush was on Carley Knight in Elementary School. I liked her from 3rd to 6th grade. It never turned out the way I wanted it to back then, but we're really good friends now and I'm happy we are.
11: I wish I could see my old friend Timmy again. He came over to my house one day and basically introduced me to skateboarding. I instantly fell in love with it, and skate for around 7 years after he showed it to me. I lost contact with him when he moved away, but I'll always be thankful I had him as a friend once.
12: Middle school was definitely a weird time for me, and i guess thats true for everybody. I think you start finding out who your real friends are and finding a group of people you like to hang out with. I started kinda falling out of the mainstream then. I did that by quiting football, started skateboarding a whole lot more, and started to develop my love for shooting videos and short films.
13: This next chapter is gonna take six pages cause it's the one I really care about. I think I fell in love with movies after I watched Jaws for the first time at the Palace Theatre on my 11th birthday. I became extremely interested in sharks for about a year, and it took me about that much time to realize that I wasn't really interested in sharks but the way that that movie made me feel about sharks. I suddenly realized that these people that made these films were the reason behind my many interests as a child. Whether it be dinosaurs from Jurassic Park to baseball in the Sandlot, movies had always been apart of me since my childhood. My 8th and 9th grade summer I went to NYFA and instantly knew that making films was the thing I wanted to do with my life. I bought a camera and started making movies from that point on. I have been in love with movies ever since that point and I think that the films that I love are the closest thing that I can find that really explain who I am.
20: The first girl that I thought I was in love with was Kendell Senter. This spanned through my Freshman and Sophomore year. It ended up with me almost getting killed by Colton and just heartbroken. It's probably a good thing for both of us that it didn't work though....
21: One of the most memorable trips I've ever taken was a 14 day field trip to Yellowstone with my entire family. We took our 6 door excursion and took off when I was in middle school. The car soon became a total and complete wreck filled with random sets of playing cards and even entire game boards but there was something magical about that 14 days. I think that is one of the best memories i have and will ever have of my entire family experiencing something completely new and exciting together.
22: I think my early years in high school really made me into the person I am today. I also think that one of my best friends, Brad Layman, also had a huge role in that. Coming into my freshman year I was for sure a "freshman". I was extremely annoying and I didn't get along with anybody. However, time helped me change that. I then met my other best friends John, Hunter, and Emmett as time went on. As time progressed, school got harder but my friendships got stronger. Really when I look back, I think that I'm gonna be glad that I got away from everything in high school, but the one thing I'll always remember and miss are my friends.
23: My senior year has been an amazing ride. I actually got to start doing things with my life since my parents finally started giving me some slack. If it wasn't for the stupid parent portal life would be a whole lot better! But really the only stuff that matters is that i got into Notre Dame, i had a great final year, and i got to spend a bunch of time with my friends. If i could do anything differently throughout high school I think I would have just spent more time with the people I cared about. I focused a lot on stupid stuff that didn't matter at all, and i wish i could've just had more fun in high school. But it was fun while it lasted, and now its time to move on...
