This is Elizabeth. Just as Tori (she was in my last blog post) I had met and really started talking to her through the MAD Academy. As well as Tori we had a majority of our classes freshman year. I even had 2 other classes with her that were outside of MAD, which were both of my math classes I had before I got out of one of them.
Elizabeth is always cool to be around and she has a contagious laugh where when she laughs super loud you want to laugh at her laugh because its pretty funny. Wow I said laugh a lot in that sentence.. anyways. Last week she had told me that she wanted to be in my blog because she loves the entire meaning behind my blog and what its about. And that was really sweet because I really didn’t think any of my own classmates would actually take the time to read my blog. She was so excited and willing to be in it so here is Elizabeth on what makes her happy.
“What makes me happy is my family and dance. When i’m with my family I can always have a good time with them and just enjoy who is surrounding me. Coming from a mexican family we are really loud!! And with them we always have something to do and we go through everything together; if one of us gets in trouble then we are suddenly all involved and getting in trouble. When it comes to dance, its something that I really can’t explain. It’s just that every time I dance or preform on stage I feel joy and a sense of adrenaline. Or even when I feel sad or mad I remember myself I have dance the next morning. It’s like when I’m dancing I forget about all of my problems and It’s just myself the song and the beat.”
I really enjoyed what she had to say to that because it shows she has a passion and it shows she has something that keeps her calm and at ease. When it comes to me I don’t have much to keep me calm or at ease other than my girlfriend. But I guess I can say music keeps me calm too because it does. Whenever I listen to music its just like I’m in another world and its just my phone, my headphones and myself. This is what Elizabeth loves about herself.
“When my friends have problems or they’re in need of something I always try my best to help them out and put them first before myself. I am very outgoing and I like to try new things, even when there risky. I also love that I’m not embarrassed of who I am and where I come from. Others are embarrassed of who they are but not me, I love my culture and I love my background.”
I loved when she talked about her background because a lot of people are ashamed of where they come from and how they live, but you really shouldn’t be. Anyways Elizabeth I know your’e probably reading this, and I wanted to tell you that I think that you should always put yourself first before anyone else because at the end of the day only you are the one depending on your future not your friends.
