3: Who am I? I am a anything but normal, or at least I think I am. I have been through a lot in my eighteen years, but I still have a lot to learn. So do I really know who I am? Probably not, but I have an idea or at least a thought as to who i believe I am. I am a grapefruit. Yeah that's right, a grapefruit. I am sour and bitter, but as I grow and mature I become sweeter and a whole lot better. This doesn't make sense, but trust me when I say that I am a grapefruit because only some people love grapefruits and most people are either apathetic or hateful towards grapefruits, just as they are with me. This is probably the most accurate way that I can describe myself because I have this tough skin that most people cannot get into and it takes time to completely peel all of it off. I am not vulnerable, but I am naive. I have my shortcomings, but I am mostly strong and independent. This is who I am right now, but hopefully I'll change some of my stubborn ways in the future.I don't want to remain the same person in ten years. I want to evolve and become the very best version of me. However, as of right now I am Leonardo Almanza the Grapefruit.
5: If I Had Three Wishes... | My first wish would be to go on tour with Britney Spears. This would be an amazing opportunity for a fan like me because I love almost everything she does, but most of all I love her personality. She is my favorite pop artist of all time and I couldn't think of anyone else to go on tour with because she is amazing even with all her flaws. Also she is funny and outgoing so she won't be one of those stuck up artists with dive demands. | My second wish is vain, but I don't care. I would wish to marry Zac Efron because, well, just look at him! He isn't an amazing actor, but he has a great personality and good looks to match. Also he's pretty rich, which is another plus. Most people would laugh, but it's my wish so back off, and don't judge. Yeah, I'm talking to you! Oh yeah, not to mention if my first wish doesn't come true, at least this one will get me close to meeting Godney Spears. | My Third Wish would be to spend a full day with all of my family in California. This is my more sentimental wish because I haven't spent a full day with everyone in years because of the long distance. Those days were fun and some of the best days of my life. Just sitting there and being around each made me happy.
6: Favorite Thing To Do and What Interests Me...
7: Some of my favorite things to do include spending time with my family, spending time with friends, volunteering at the Lodi Ambulance Corp., and more. One of my all time favorite things to do is to spend time watching TV with my sister or just watching movies until we're zombies. one of my favorite memories was watching Saturday morning cartoons with my sister and just spending all day with each other without having to worry about school, homework, drama, and friends. Now one of my favorite things to do is volunteer because it is like a home away from home there. The people are so welcoming and they take time to talk to you about anything. I've learned so much from that place and I like how people treat one another there.It's really comfortable and enjoyable. Another thing I love to do is spend time with friends outside of school or just at their homes. I like spending time in the company of others.
8: All things grow better with love. | My First Love... Yet to be found, but that does not mean I'm not searching for that special someone. Hopefully they're out there somewhere. | My First Crush... My first crush was in the kindergarten. I had, emphasis on the HAD, a huge crush on a girl with the ugly name Mildred. She was tan and had green eyes with dark brown/black hair. She was the smartest girl in class and I had the hots for her. Too bad she is not my type anymore haha :P
9: My First Obsession... My first obsession was with Britney Spears. She was my all time favorite artist, and she still is. She was just so damn perfect because she was not afraid to look stupid and ridiculous as long as she was having fun. This was my first obsession growing up and it still is now. Her music is th best pop music out there and she has been through so much personally that I have to look up to her and admire her courage. She is my religion LOL But most of all, she's Britney BITCH!
11: Friendship is love, Without friendship love means nothing! Without friendship love is empty Without friendship love is boring...! Friendship means sharing People learn to share from friendship, Share everything they have in life, Friendship is like the stars, Even though we always see them together Always mean to each other But, Sometimes they argue! Friendship is like a flower, Soft but strong! Friendship is like the sun, Bright and beautiful! Friendship is everything in life, Life without friendship is like life without air Life without friendship is like eats without food And Life without friendship is like body without soul Friendship is wide! Anybody can be our friend, Our parents, our grandparents, our sister, our brother and even our school principal! Friendship. Is everything!
12: Samantha Time!!! | Remember that time Curry was a rapper... | Remember that time Curry was a Golden Girl... | Remember that time Curry was Conan's best friend... | Remember that time Curry was Adam Levine's girlfriend...
13: Remember that time Curry was a hipster drinking horchata... | Remember that time Curry met Obama... | Remember that time Curry was a smiling for once... | Remember that time Curry was Brianna's bosom buddy...
14: NHS | I'm most proud of my academic excellence thus far. I have done some amazing things so far. Here's to the Future and becoming a doctor. Hopefully I succeed at that. | Graduation? | I'm most proud of the time I've spent volunteering considering the fact that I was reluctant to get involved with the community. I'm proud of the friends I've made in the community and in school because of this amazing opportunity. I am truly honored to have served as a volunteer EMS.
15: I'm most proud of how strong of a bond I have with my family considering how independent I am. I'm also proud that to have made my mother proud. | FAMILY | I'm most proud of the time I've spent so far on earth. I love my life and I wouldn't change it at all. Also, I am proud of the amount of growth I've made during the last three years in New Jersey.
16: Livin life to the fullest | This fall I'm heading to Washington, D.C. for college. This is the first time I will be away from my family and I'm looking forward to it. Sorry Clarinez! Hopefully I am successful in college and I don't get mugged in D.C. I've been to different countries and all around the U.S. before, but this is different. I'm actually an adult now. Holy Crap, I'm scared now that I think of it... Oh Well! Hooray for D.C.!!!!
17: Venturing into the world all on my lonesome! I will miss the days I spent traveling Utah, Yosemite, Nevada, California, and Mexico with my family.
18: The Meaning of Life Is.... | The meaning of life is to be happy. It's that simple. Happiness is all people should live for because there life would be full of regrets otherwise. Don't worry, be happy. Just live your life the way you want to because it's your life at the end of the day. You are the only one who can experience the world through your unique perspective, so see it with light and happiness. Don't be afraid to laugh at yourself and all of your mistakes. Live for you and all that you want in your life. That is my opinion and that is how I filter my memories, by only remembering what makes me happy and the people around me happy. Smile and walk away with joy in your heart. Life is meant to be spent in happiness, without any worries or cares.
20: The best of time are when I spend time with the people I love. I have the best memories when I share them with others. Like the one time I tickled my sister so much she peed herself, or the time I fondled a statue near our old neighborhood (it was an accident...). I will never forget my senior year of high school because it is the year I have made the most memories with friends. I will never forget when Sam tied her hair up like the Irish Snooki that she is. I will never forget when I used labia as one of the words in a scrabble match in AP Calculus. I have fond memories as well. For example, the time I lit a candle in the bathroom and my mom freaked out. Also the time I spent watching wrestling with my dad. These memories are the best things in my life and they made me who I am today.
21: She fell really hard afterwards and we all laughed. | I got someone's cooch smashed into my face, but it was the best concert I have been to. Also I felt his shoe. | This Las Vegas trip was a disaster because I was stuck babysitting, but I spent a lot of it with my grandma whom I love. Plus she had major gas throughout the entire trip. Ahh memory lane....
22: This Who I Will Be...
23: I will be a doctor in the future with a wonderful family. I will have my own home and I will support my family if they need me to. I will continue to be a student, whether I'm continuing my science education or pursuing further degrees. I will be a man who is not afraid of the obstacles he has to overcome. I will continue to push myself and I will not give up. I will be determined and successful. I will continue to be a Britney fan because I can be. I will be a great friend to those who are still in the picture. I will become a teacher when I am older. | I will be the future of this nation and I will be a supporter of the arts, education, science, etc. I will be a better version of myself. But most of all, I will be happy because that is all I want in life. I will be me.
