2: I titled my Mixbook "The One Who Stands Out" because no matter where I have gone or been I have always felt different and like I stood out. The stories and essays in this Mixbook are about who I am because I always felt like I can not be the real me and like I always have to be who others want me to be. This is why I have named this Mixbook “The One Who Stands Out” and I hope you enjoy it. | Prologue
3: I was born in Lexington, Kentucky on May 24, 1997. I went to a daycare called Kindercare for preschool. After that I became a Dixie Dolphin for kindergarten and first grade, because I went to Dixie Elementary School. I moved out of Lexington before second grade started and moved to a small town called Shelbyville. While I was in Shelbyville, I went to Simpsonville Elementary until fifth grade. I was moved to West Middle for sixth grade and half of seventh grade. For the other half of seventh grade I lived with my dad in Lexington and went to Saint Peter and Paul Catholic School. I got bored of that and moved back in with my mom and went to Our Savior Lutheran School for eighth grade. After that I moved to San Antonio, Texas and now go to Lutheran High School. I also have a large family. My immediate family includes my mom, my dad, my step-dad, my step-mom, my half brother (Jordan), my two step-brothers (Scotty and Nicholas), and my two step-sisters (Tara and Katie). | Introduction

6: Room Sweet Room | People always say that your room is your sanctuary. Your room is suppose to be a place where you can just be you. The place that is yours. Even though all of this is true, my room is not a sanctuary. I can not truly be myself when I am in "my" room. Wherever I go I always hide who I really am. Their room has tan walls, a ceiling fan, three windows with a view of the street. The room I use is in the front of my house on the second floor. It is right above the garage. This is the room that I sleep in. The r00m all my clothes and memorabilia is in, but it is not my room. My room is hidden. It is not seen by anyone but me. My room is blank with nothing. People ask to see my room, but I show them the room that they think is mine. I can never show them MY room, not really, because MY room is not real. MY room is in me. MY room is imaginary. MY room is my secret place where no one can hurt me and cause me pain.

10: The Ultimate All-Purpose Excuse | Well I was coming to school today when my car got stolen. So I started hitch hiking, but apparently I had caught the eye of a top secret government agency, and nobody would give me a ride. Then the government agency kidnapped me and took me to Area 51 in their flying car. They told me that they wanted me to join the Secret Under Cover Teenagers Intending On Never Obeying Adults, or SUCTIONOA for short. I agreed and so they sent me away with some of their "secret alien weaponry". I would show you, but as I was flying to school using my jet-pack backpack, alien platypuses abducted me because I had some of their stuff. They were going to kill me but I convinced them to let me join their secret agency called Practically Legitimate Aliens Trained Yet Pretend Uber Spies, or PLATYPUS for short. They attempted to drop me off using their teleporter but it sent me to the moon so I jacked a spaceship and flew here to school landing just before the bell rang and made me late to class.

14: "Flowers look up to the sun: Children look up to their Mothers." - Jamie Bertucci | Look Who I Look Up To (Part 1) | I look up to my mom because she lived a hard life as a kid and she has gone through a lot, but she is still going. For as long as I can remember she has been going to college. Until she married my step-dad in (insert date) she was a single mom with a full time job and she was still going to college to get a degree. Now she has joined the U.S. Airforce and is finishing up her doctorate degree in psychology. She recently had surgery but she is still going and has not stopped but has always strived to do her best. That is what she taught me, to always do your best even when you do not think you will make it through.

16: Look Who I Look Up To (Part 2) | I look up to my dad because even though he does not always get it right, he does care. Even when he is far away he tries to reach out. Even though I have to push sometimes. He has always understood what I was saying and I could just talk to him. He was not always tis good he used to not be doing so well. However, to me is an example of how you can turn your life around no matter what you have done in the past.

20: Dream Car | My dream car is a car that can help save the world. It is a car that can use solar power, hydroelectricity, and wind power. It is also a fast car and it has GBS. It would change from black to white depending on the temperature and the interior would be clear. It would have a radio and voice programing so that I do not have to do anything while driving. Plus it would also be able to make food and drink. My car would also be able to change the seats into beds for overnight drives. This is the car that I would make and drive if I could.
