Lil Baby Lion

This is Victoria Reyes, but all of her friends (including myself) call her Vicky. Before I had even asked Vicky to be in my blog she had told me that she wanted to be in it but the only problem was that she isn’t photogenic. But that didn’t stop me from being able to get cute pics 🙂

Asking Vicky what makes her happy made her realize that the question isn’t as easy as it sounds. It really makes you think. When she told me what made her happy she said that it sounds depressing and sad, but honestly it doesn’t. Because this is about yourself and what gives you some sense of happiness in your life. So this is what Vicky had to say in what makes herself happy.

“What makes me happy is listening to music. All my life music has always been the one thing in my life that’s always been there. Music has been there either to lighten my mood, break the awkward silence, or to cry for whenever I was feeling depressed. Music is the first thing I listen to in the morning and the last thing I listen to at night. I can literally be in the worst mood ever, even at the times where I feel worthless and I can just play that one song that makes me feel better. Through out those 3-4 minutes it feels like my problems are non existent.”

Reading what she had to say was something I could relate to because music helps through a lot of emotions and can also make emotions, whether it being when you’re sad and for some people music just helps them through their rough times. Or when you’re just in the car or walking, listening to music can get you pumped up or just put you in a better mood. Now being able to get into the part where she gets to tell me about what she loves about herself is so nice because.. I don’t know, but for myself I love reading/hearing what people have to say, especially when it’s them talking positively about themselves.

“What I love about myself is that I don’t let anyone’s insults bring me down. Whenever someone insults me or tries to insult me I just usually try to be optimistic about it. Also I love my curly hair. A lot people would tell me that they wished they could have my hair, and that they would do anything in the book to get it super curly and thick.”

I honestly LOVE that she mentioned her hair because I really love her hair she looks like a lil baby lion and it’s soooo cute I love it a lot. Usually people with curly hair want straight hair and people with straight hair want curly hair, but she doesn’t. She loves and appreciates her hair for what it is and that makes me happy.  I loved being able to learn more about her.

This is Victoria D. Reyes.

Who is D.R.S ?

This is Desirae Riana Sanchez, she’s someone I can really trust and someone I can really get a good laugh with. I have really learned a lot about her this year and we happened to get really close over time; but I wanted to figure out who she really is. What makes her Desirae ? There’s always more than what you just see in the pictures.

I’ve had conversations with Desirae before, and those conversations have really opened my eyes on self love. And it’s one of the reasons that made me want to put her in my blog, but we can talk about that after this. For now this is what she has to say on her happiness and what makes her happy.

“I’m happiest when i’m alone by myself.. actually no that sounds depressing, let me rephrase that. I’m happiest when i’m in my own space. I find it hard to be my true self at times with my family or friends and even with myself. So being on my own time gives me some sense of sanity because I dont need to keep things bottled. Although I do love time to myself I also love the thrill of life that gets thrown at me whether its being with friends or family.”

Being around Desirae is always fun so she better have some type of joy being around this beautiful soul.. kidding. or am I? Anyways asking her these questions really gives me excitement because I think that someone talking about what they love about themselves is so nice because it’s like “yessss girllllyy love yourself, no man (or women) needs to be in your life to make you feel beautiful and loved.” I could tell she dreaded answering this question but i’m happy I got something out of her, so this is what Desirae loves about herself.

“What I love about myself is that i’m able to take other peoples feelings and insecurities into consideration; because I know how it feels to be brought down by others and even brought down by myself. I love that I can be there for others and be someones shoulder/support. I’m that person to surprisingly to text you randomly because I notice that you are’t well whether they show it in person or through social media.”

Hearing what she had to say makes me happy but also upset because she doesn’t realize the true beauty that she has within her. And it sucks because this society now and days revolve around the people they see on social media. So girls especially put themselves down just because they don’t have an hour shape glass body. Hopefully one day Desirae will be able to love herself for who she is, because able to accept everything that comes with her because whether she realizes it or not, myself and many other people see the beauty in who she really is. This is Desirae Riana Sanchez.

My Straight Twin Sister

This is Leslie Carbajal, shes 15 and shes not really my twin sister.. we just happen to look alike.

Leslie is one of my good friends and I wanted her to be in my blog so that not only I can know her and understand her better but so can everyone else. At first when I had asked her what makes her happy, she was giving me not as detailed and deep answers; it was more like “my friends make me happy and so does food” but that wasn’t what I was looking for. Then I realized this is her story not mine so I appreciated her for what she had said.

“What makes me happy are all of the little things. As in getting out of the shower and having that fresh feeling or being able to have thought about a nice outfit in my head and once I actually put it on it comes out how I had envisioned it. It’s family that puts a smile on my face, being able to connect and just always being real with each other and not being somebody we aren’t. Even my friends, they make me happy too, even though they are a pain in the ass they’re brutally honest and that’s what I love about them. They know how to make me laugh and whenever i’m with them I always have a good time.”

I’m pretty sure that I’m one of those brutally honest friends, but it’s okay because there isn’t anything wrong with being honest. I rather be really super honest than to lie straight into your face… haha get it straight, something i’m not. I’m dumb.. okay anyways this is what Leslie has to say about what she loves about herself.

“One of the things that I love about myself is my sense of humor, because I feel that I can lift up anyone’s spirit up with the way I joke around. Although I hate it I gotta love it for what it is, and that’s my hair. It’s long and thick and so many people would love to have my hair so even though its a pain in the ass, and I appreciate it for what it is. I’m still learning how to love myself for who I am, but I think something else that I really love about myself is my smile. I think that for someone who’s never had braces my teeth are pretty straight.”

I had just met Leslie my freshman year and I honestly learned some stuff about her. Being able to love yourself is hard, it’s not something that happens over night. But I know she will get there and once it happens it’s such a great feeling. This is Leslie Carbajal :))

 

This is Jacquelyne Leyvas

This is Jacquelyne aka JacqueDreams. She is a 15 year old bisexual; and this is her story.

“I wasn’t being myself; I was unhappy. That’s when I realized my happiness matters too. I sat my sister down first and let her know that this is who I am and this is who I love. Eventually that led into my mom and then my brother in law. When it came to my friends I never really ever brought it to their attention or ever really come out to them. It was more like me being able to show interest in both guys and girls and eventually they had just caught on. Although some did have the balls to just come up to me and ask me straight up and of course my answer would just be yes because I was no longer going to hide who I really am.”

Having to come out is probably one of the hardest things anyone has to go through. People will then have the fear of being judged and no longer liked or being looked at differently just because of who you choose to love which is stupid, but unfortunately this is the way our society works. This then leads me on to your happiness and Jacque had a few things to say about what makes her happy.

“What makes me happy is being able to help others. Whether it just giving advice or being there for someone when they need to vent, being able to provide for others when they don’t have it. It doesn’t matter what it is that i’m helping with, just the fact that they chose me to confide in means a lot when people can trust me and it makes my heart happy.”

Being happy is not only trying to make others happy but its revolved around being able to love yourself and being content with who you are; so lastly I had asked her what she loves about herself and basically what makes her who she is.

“What I love about myself is that I am not judgmental, many people believe that others need to look a certain way and act a certain way. And I personally believe the complete opposite which i’m glad I have. Something else I love about myself is that I’ve learned to not give a fuck about anyone else’s opinion and that’s something that used to bother me a lot; but now I couldn’t care less. These are just two awesome qualities that most people lack in this society, but I’ve learned to strengthen them.”

Although I’ve known her for almost 6 yrs, you’ve now learned a lil bit about Jacque too
