4: Self Respect
5: Sometimes I put on make-up, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I do my hair, sometimes I don't. Depending on the situation, I might even dress in sweats and a T-shirt. It really just depends on how I feel. I'm not your average GSMST-er. And I ain't just like the others. But I learned to not follow the stereotype. Because I am different than everybody else. I'm not beautiful or prodigy-like smart. But my worth is not determined by beauty but my character. And no matter what, I am beautiful on the inside. And I will always be gorgeous in my own way no matter what.
6: Where I'm From | I am from cup noodles, from Shin ramen and wooden chopsticks. I am from the vegetable filled garden. (Colorful, organic, smelling like publix.) I am from the Rose of Sharon, the Shrub Althea who's flowers bloom and die in one day I am from bowing to the elderly and brown hair, from Misty to Kyle. I am from the pushovers, and perfectionists. From keeping my chin up and to stop being such a crybaby. I am from being saved by Christ, and ironed dresses every Sunday. I'm from Atlanta and South Korea, steamed rice and homemade soup.
7: From the cousin who broke his finger from football, the video games all night, and the mouth surgery of my grandfather. I am from everywhere around the house, From the cabinets to the fireplace, Dusty family pictures hanging all over the refrigerator So many distant relatives that each face is like a stranger But feeling a strong bond with someone so far away.
8: Where I'm From
9: Mother is being the usual glamour queen She is preparing the house for guests As usual she forgot about the green beans And about all the rest Mother also forgot the dessert That she left in the oven for twenty Suddenly Aunt Linda and Uncle Burt Arrive with many Grandmother Louise screams Because she sees something dead At first everyone thinks its in her dreams But there is a cockroach lifeless on the bread Therefore our dinner was terrible The only person who was happy was mother Who said the dinner was repairable But everyone was already gone
