2: Introduction | Christine Tran is an 8th grade student at Sparta Middle School. For most of her life she has lived in Sparta, New Jersey. In her spare time she likes to read and write. Her hobbies include tennis, skiing, soccer, singing, and playing the piano. Christine aspires to get into an Ivy League college and have a good job in the future.
3: 10-Minute Write (revised) | I wake up and go to the bathroom. Brush my teeth for 30 seconds and then go change. I go back to my room and see some clothes on the floor and smell them. "Eh, They smell ok." I think. I put them on and go back to the bathroom to put half a can of Axe because I'm cool that way. I go downstairs and grunt at my parents. I grab some bacon and then head out to the bus.
4: Holidays at Home | For Christmas everyone on my Mom's side of the family comes over to my house. When they arrive around 7 o'clock we all eat before anything else. Usually we have Vietnamese food. When everybody is done eating we all just sit around and talk. Later on we all play a game a relative brings over. Either the Wii or a board game like Cranium. After games we sing Happy Birthday to me because my birthday is two days away from Christmas. We then have dessert and coffee while everyone talks amongst themselves. Close to midnight we all start to open presents. After presents my relatives stay over for about another hour and then start to leave.
6: Childhood Treasure | I have a stuffed bear that my grandmother gave me when I was a baby. I treasured that bear for a long time. It was important to me because my grandma gave it to me and I loved that stuffed bear. I would always have it with me when I was younger. One specific memory I have with it was when I misplaced it for a day and I got really mad about it. At the end of the day I found it in my room.
8: Letter to my 10 Year-Old Self | Hi Christine, It's your future self! I'm writing this letter to you to give you some advise and whatnot. Well my first piece of advise is to always have your friends backs. Another is to be more confident, don't back down. Try new things and don't be afraid. Also I would advise you to study more and try not to make careless mistakes. What I would do differently that you can do is to talk to all your friends to clear confusion if there is a fight. Don't take sides and make sure your friends know that. Lastly, try not to be so shy, try to speak out more. Well that's all I can say right now. Bye! :) From, Christine | ___________________

10: This is Where I want to Go | I envision myself in the future a lot. I think of different possibilities and futures. The one future that I envision for me though is a great future. I graduate from Harvard and become a successful entertainment lawyer. After some years I take a break and travel around the world. I go to Spain, Greece, London, and more. After traveling round' the world I begin work again and get married and have kids. Years later I retire at the age of 43. I then go everywhere to help the needy and poor. At the age of 55 I go home and spend more time with my children and husband. I am happy and content with my life. At the age of 67 my husband and I go to a personal retiring center with all my friends. I get visits frequently and am very happy. I die peacefully with no regrets.
