Queen Elizabeth III

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.

This is Elizabeth Vela.



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 :))
