3: Traits/Personality/Likes/Dislikes The traits I share with my ancestors are: loving, kind, and creative. I have the same physical traits as my mom. I look just like her. My mom and I are very creative and crafty. We like to do many crafts together. We enjoy the love of cooking. I want to learn to cook just like her and pass it down. I am stubborn like my dad. I have a strong opinion about things. I'm not afraid to speak my mind. My mom and I are also sensitive and emotional. My parents and I love music. I'm very grateful of my ancestor's traits.
4: The walls felt like They were closing I knew in that moment I was in a time collapse Layers of possibility were seeping through my veins Making it easy to understand, I was trapped I'd like to escape this prison, mind extended Over clouds, I could imagine anything I wanted Sometimes, it wasn't gravity holding me to earth, It was the strength love had impacted on me If anything were to make me forget about love... My body would collapse on the floor Aching Just trying to remember the happiness I felt Then the walls broke free around me I was covering my head and ears ambitious to find... What I've gotten into this time The walls transformed into black crows They roamed free in the atmosphere of dark, gloomy skies Nothing was better than this To be released from the chains tied around me
5: I am a girl that never asks questions I wonder if I'll ever fall in love I hear the flowers bursting into sparkles I see a million stars in my mom's eyes I want to make people smile I pretend being a princess in a castle I feel the joy and love in my happiness I touch the hearts of those who care about me I worry about... losing those close to me I cry thinking about the past I am a girl that never asks questions I understand the meaning of having the weight lifted off my shoulders I say I'll never give up I dream about everything I try everyday to become something I'm proud of I hope I'm good enough for everyone else I am the girl that never asks questions
6: You're not alone Together we stand I'll be by your side, you know I'll take your hand When it gets cold And it feels like the end There's no place to go You know I won't give in No I won't give in Keep holding on 'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through Just stay strong 'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you There's nothing you could say Nothing you could do There's no other way when it comes to the truth So keep holding on 'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/avrillavigne/keepholdingon.html
7: I used to pretend I was a cowgirl riding on my dad's back. I also felt as tall as a giraffe on the top of my dad's shoulders. I have so many great memories that it's hard to remember all of them. My dad and I used to do a lot of things together. I would always be daddy's little girl. He even made a song for me when I was little. "Katelyn Rose walking down the street, all the little boys think that she's so sweet, when she walks by they stop and stare 'cause they know she's the prettiest girl anywhere." I loved being sung that song.
8: I believe everyone has beauty, but not everyone sees it. | I believe there's light somewhere beyond the darkness. | I believe that you have the ability to accomplish anything you put your mind to. | I believe you're going to go far in life. | I believe you can do this. You're invincible.
9: Dear Katelyn, You've made it this far in life. Don't give up on your dreams. Whatever you want to do in life can be accomplished. Your dreams are hanging in the air. Find the strength and keep reaching higher. Fate doesn't decide your destiny, you do. Find the right path and go on an adventure to find what your passion is. Go out there and kick butt. Just... don't get in trouble. Along the way you should meet new people, make new friends, have a good time and be yourself. Nothing is stopping you at this point.
10: Sometimes there's an obstacle we all have to jump over. You're not alone when it comes to tough situations. There's people around you supporting you. They'll reassure you you're going to make it. They want to make you reach your dream just as much as you want to.
11: I believe you can do this. | I love Century!
12: Anything you're good at contributes to happiness. - Bertrand Russell | I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you. -Roy Orbison | Flaws shouldn't matter, embrace them. - Katelyn Willemssen :) | Be a leader, not a follower. - My dad | I stand for freedom of expression, doing what you believe in, and going after your dreams. - Madonna Ciccone | Sometimes when we don't know it, our dreams are right in front of us. - Katelyn WIllemssen :)
