8: My mom's telling tale: Every time my mom's side of the family gets together I always heard people asking if the food was really from my Aunt Jan. I then found out that she has never, in her life, made homemade food. When she brings food for gatherings the adults always ask, "Is that food really homemade, Jan?" So now, if she really | 8

9: Mom | does make homemade food? Nobody believes her. | 9

10: Dad's Telling Tale: My dad, his brother, and 3 sisters were all on vacation. Driving down the highway, in a van, cars kept passing and honking while pointing at their vehicle. My granddad couldn't figure out why. Then he saw in the rear view mirror My aunt Barbara holding a piece of paper in the back window. He made her show it to him and it said, "Help! We're being kidnapped!" | 10

11: Dad | 11

12: As Time Goes Bye-Bye I would like to have wrote a book by the time I'm 30. Ever since I was a little girl I've wanted to write a book. I have had this dream that I would become a writer, and thats all I want to do. I also want to own my own book store. That is what I want to do by the time I am 30. | hhgfiegfieawugfiugfhuiGFIUGFIUGFIUFUIFHOR8FHEQUFHOFHUIFHGOIHFGHOHWRGOIHGHAOGHOIHFOHFOIHFOIHFJDHFOHFJFBOIHVJBFSUDVBABOUVGSKJBVOAIVSKJBVOAUGOUVBKJBVOABAKJBVUGVSKJVUOBKJDBVUIVHKDJFHGOUAHFKJABRGUHKJBODHFUGKEFHIBVOUFGHKWRJBGOUHVBVB | YFYFUYFYTFDYTDIERUGUWGFIUGFIYUGFYGIGOGWUFEYGIUGFIUDFYFWRGIUFYRGRIUYFIUWGRIFYWIUEFTIWURGIUGFU8GHCIYWEFFHO8CYBFUIVYRYBTUIGFDUAHSIVUGFDGVIVGUWFGVIUVYWIUFGVIGLUGFGHFIA7YFIOAUWFO9DY8FWFI7TI8YTF | 12

13: My Farewells: I have said a lot of farewells in my life. Most of them were this recent year. I have said goodbye to Tryon Elementary and John Chavis Middle School. My farewells this year are more sad than happy. I have said goodbye to my friend, Jonathan, who was shot in the head at the age of 26. I said goodbye to my fish, Cujo, who died. My cat, Princess, died as well. Then, my dog, Romeo, had Wobbler's Disease, and we had to put him down. | 13

18: Double Trouble | 18

19: Picture This! These pictures mean a lot to me. I think mainly because he's my twin. We've been through everything together. | People say we don't always look alike, but we sure do act alike. We are good, shy, and quiet kids. When we're together though, we cause trouble. These pictures always make me say , "I'm glad to have Darien as my twin brother." | 19

20: My baby is extraordinary! He is 5 years old. His name is Max. I've had him since the 5th grade. He is a cat. I love him to death. He's gray with black stripes and has green eyes. He's very playful. He isn't normal, either. He rolls around like a dog, and he loves his belly rubbed. I found him under my dad's lawn mower. Every morning he wakes me up at 6:00. There is 2 things that bother me about him. 1. When I'm doing my homework he likes to lay all over my books. | 20

21: 2. If I don't pay attention to him he will sit and stare at me, and when I still ignore him he'll head butt me. | 21

22: My special place! I'm the oldest child in my house, and you can guess I don't get much privacy. Even when it was me and my twin brother, Darien, he always was in my business. Me and my dad made a house in my backyard before my little brother was born. It's in the woods and it's white. It's supposed to be a building where tools and stuff go, but he said I could have it for myself. | 22

23: My special place!!!!!!!! | 23

24: Someone who has influenced me? I would have to say my Paw-paw. My paw-paw has influenced me a lot these past couple years. He's gone through everything and he still goes forward with his head held high. His mom died 3 years ago, and a couple weeks later his sister died. Then, while putting a sign up, he falls off of an 11 foot ladder. He shatters both knees and ankles. He used to clear his mind by doing what he loved - riding his motorcycle. He couldn't for months. Then, his son, my 18 year old uncle, gets in a wreck. He's fine, but my paw-paw never gave up. He still rides today, and he takes me with him all the time. Paw-paw has taught me a lot of stuff, but there is one thing I remember more than anything. "No matter what happens in your life, NEVER say you lost. You can always do what you want as long as you push for it." | 24

26: My favorite vacation was the week before school started. I went to Camp Da. My friends call their dad Da, and he's in the military so he's never home. Every year he takes his daughters and eight of their friends around to different places. Monday we went Pistol shooting. Tuesday we rock climbing. Wednesday we went bowling and did paint ball. Thursday we did archery and went to the Nascar Speedway Park for go-carts. Friday we went kayaking. I loved that week because I'd never done any of it except for bowling. I liked it because I like new things. I was known as Squirrel that week. I was known of that because I was the quiet one, but when I got to rock climb I was the fastest. I never gave up and I kept getting faster. Although I was bruised up, I loved it. That was the best week, and I can't wait for next year. | 26

27: 27

28: Pack Planning If I was going anywhere, I'd want to go back to the beach. Chincoteague, VA beach. It's a little island my dad takes me and my brother to every year. I love it there because it's small and quiet. My dad says it's a resemblance of me - small and quiet. If I could only take one suit case, as hard as it would be, I'd take my to-die-for things. I'd take my cat, Max. I'd have my cell phone and charger. Id make sure I have my favorite clothes and swim suit. I'd take all my money. I'd have my favorite things to do which is reading and writing. Then lastly, if it fits, I'd bring my skateboard. That's all the things I'd take with me. | 28

29: 29

30: My moms favorite memories were with me and Darien together. We had like a mental connection. Before Darien learned to talk, I would talk for him. I would know exactly what he wanted and I would let people know. I still have a bad habit of talking for | Remembering the Child | 30

31: him. He does the same thing for me. It's like we know what we're thinking, and we don't have to say anything. I remember one story. We were around 3 years old. I was outside with some kids in the neighborhood and Darien was inside. Some little boy had pushed me off my tricycle, and I just sat there. Darien, without anyone telling him, | came out and pushed that little boy off. He said, "leave her alone," and helped me on the bike again. I guess that's when we started sticking up for one another. So, when you ask about Mikala Forinash when she was a little child just remember, I wasn't a child alone. I was a child with my best friend and brother - Darien Forinash. :) | 31

33: 33

34: Family Influence My family influence was hard to choose because I have a lot of them. I finally chose my little sister, Tambi. I know I'm supposed to influence her because I'm the older sister, but we kind of influence each other. Everyone knows I'm the quiet one. I can't just walk in and start talking. I think it's a fear of embarrassing myself because I get nervous around everyone. My sister is the exact opposite. She is loud and doesn't care what people think of her. As my step sister, she's had me open up a lot. I'm breaking out of my shell a lot all because of my loud, funny, and sometimes conceited sister. She is my family influence. | 34

35: 35

36: Getting my permit... I took drivers Ed last year around Christmas, I think. Although I hated sitting through class, it was all worth it. I drove with Mr. Moss, and my brother in the back seat. I did fairly well. I didn't crash which is always good. The funnies moment was when my brother almost hit Mrs. Kennerly. The only two problems I had was that I don't like seatbelt so I'd forget to put it on, and I had trouble with going the speed limit. I passed, though. We haven't got it but I'm going soon. I still practice in my dads truck. | 36

37: My dad's truck | 37

38: I think my favorite memorable event was this previous June. We went to West Virginia for a mission trip. This year they let the youth group attend. It was a fun experience for all of us. I have to admit there were some challenges, but that made us a stronger person in our church and in ourself. It was extremely inspiring. My dad joined along with the trip. He was excited because he grew up in West Virginia. He knew where everything was in that part of town. It was fun to do something with the church and also go back to a place I loved as a kid. | 38

39: 39

40: My first rewarding experience was when I was playing soccer. It was my first year and I scored a lot. I've played since, but not for school. I play mostly for charities. This is the Trophy I was awarded. I played for a team called the Panthers. | My second award was for dance. Me and my sister did dance class until we were 9. She is more into gymnastics and cheer leading. I'm more into soccer and anything athletic. | My third award is for cheer leading. I cheered from the second grade until the fifth grade. I moved here and quit. I'm not sure why. I think it was more of the fact that I didn't want to cheer with new people. | 40

41: The fourth reward was my fifth and sixth grade spelling bee awards. Fifth grade I was 12 out of 30 kids. sixth grade I was 4th out of 30 people again. | My fifth award is the mission trip award I have. I have it because I went on a mission trip and helped them build a church. It built in the number of people and the actual building of the church. | 41

42: sad | happy | anger | passion | hyper | 42

43: Hyper: Hyper is bright purple. Hyper smells like strong perfume. Hyper tastes like sugar-filled coffee. Hyper looks like an abstract picture. Hyper sounds like an uncontrollable laugh. Hyper feels like a sugar rush. | 43

44: My Brag: I'm quieter and sneakier than a mouse. I can be slower than a turtle, but when it comes to things I enjoy I'm faster than a squirrel running up a tree. I'm more clumsy than a 1 year old. Come hang out and you'll see. | 44
