4: Setting My favorite place to visit is the magical land of Disney World. This has been my families favorite place to visit since my parents were little and now they have carried on the tradition. From the rush of the rockin' roll rollercoaster to the drenching splash mountain the fun never ends. My favorite ride though would have to be Peter Pan where I actually thought I would be flying. Mortified of all of the characters except Jesse from Toy Story whenever I would see a character I would scream in terror and run in the other direction. Besides from that the three times I have been to Disney World have been magical and it is definitely my favorite place to be.
5: Irony Irony: times you can look back and laugh at ourselves; our lives wouldn't be complete without it. Irony has been in my life too. Once in about midsummer after 5 bees buzzed passed us, I was bragging to a friend that I have never got stung by a bee in my life. The next day I was at the pool and of course there were flowers on the grass and if there are flowers there are bound to be bees. Then I was walking up to get my towel and there on the flower was a bee and there went my foot stepping straight on it. I knew what stepped on right when I felt the pain and just said to myself oh the irony.
6: Theme My theme is something I follow from day to day and that everyone should get into their minds, be you. People may try to influence the way you act around others, especially people they want to impress, but I've learned the best way to act around others is to just be yourself. I know this from personal experience. My one friend always tries to get us to help her get guys attention by doing stupid things for example following guys at a far distance at a football game and running whenever they turn around, but they just got annoyed and eventually left the game. This taught me that being goofy and stupid won't get their attention, so I should just be myself around them.
8: Dynamic Character The person that has been with me the most throughout my life and has always been the one there for me when I need her would be my Mom. Whenever I get myself into a situation and can't get myself out of it, I know that I can go to her and trust her to fix the problem without making it complicated for me. My mom and I are exactly and completely alike, so we know when the other is feeling upset, angry, etc. So she is always there to comfort me through hard times. Through the rough times and good times my mom has always been my "dynamic character."
9: Symbolism My medals and ribbons that I earned form hard work show symbolism to me. They symbolize to me dedication, hard work, determination and achievement. The most important symbolism the medal holds is determination. If you don't want to fight be the best, you never will be. Whenever I look at my medals and ribbons, I think if I did this then anything is possible.
10: Internal Conflict Every story needs a conflict and most conflicts are happening in the mind, like much of mine. One of my main internal conflicts in life is trying to figure of who my real friends are and who I can trust. Getting close to someone and have them stab you in the back later isn't much fun. But it brought me to what are now my true friends. Internal conflicts are hard on your mind and seem everlasting, but they do almost always bring something good out of it.
