My mom has always told me to dream big but realistically. My brother always said to not talk yourself down and try to be less than what you are. In the future I'm wanting to go to college to earn a medical degree. I'm still not sure what exactly I want but I definitely want to get a secure job in the medical field. As I get older I've always wanted to use my talent of baking and interest in business management to open a cute little café. That would be my ultimate goal. I've always loved Georgia and I've told myself that that's where I would want to live, but at the same time I would hate to leave where my roots were planted, on a small farm in a small town.

A relationship is a lot of work from both sides. More often than not we are seeing more and more relationships fail. Being from a family who's parents are still together I've heard plenty of advice from my mom on what makes it work. Trust and honesty, you can't be with someone and constantly be questioning whether they're being truthful or not. Not only does it make the other person feel guilty of things they didn't even do, but it makes you unable to relax and enjoy you're time with that person. Being humble, you shouldn't focus on yourself. If you focus on pleasing the other person and taking care of them, then they will do the same thing for you. Plus it makes you feel loved and closer. And finally, love. How can you be with someone if you don't love them.
I've never been able to find something that I'm super good at. Since I was 5 I've been trying to find a good hobby that I don't completely suck at. From dancing, to tumbling, hunting, fishing, running, and painting, I've only ever been average. One time my mom told me to make cupcakes to give to a close family friend who's mother had just died. I found myself really enjoying myself, and when the cupcakes were finished my mom gave them a test taste, she was amazed. My grandmothers and great grandmothers had all baked and been really good at it. To me that had never occurred that it could be something I would be good at too. I guess like mother, like daughter.
Growing up I've never became attached to any of my pets. Actually I remember having fish for about a month until I got tired of them. I got irritated that they wouldn't die, so I took them out of the tank and gave them to a day care. The only pet I think I've really became attached to is my current dog Ritz. Even though we've only had him for 6 years, he's became attached to me and that makes me become attached to him. Ritz is the only pet I've had that actually knows when I want my space and when I need comfort. Imagine how the world would be if people had hearts like his.

To me I definitely don't see my parents as perfect. Sure, they get close, but no parent is "perfect". I don't see perfect parenting as never doing anything to make your child mad or irritated with you, because no matter who you are you can't satisfy everyone. The perfect parents to me are parents who know when to care for you and know when to be there with you, but also know when to give you your space. Every parent will get mad and irritated with you and every child will get mad and irritated with the parents but unconditional love and support is what makes a parent perfect.

As you begin to get older you start to hear the same talk over and over again. Whether it's in school, with your parents, or even with your friends. The talk about drugs and alcohol. Whenever i heard this talk i let it fly right over my head because i knew i was a good person, i had good friends, and i was from a good family, so naturally i didn't think i would have been exposed to anything like that. Well one night i was invited to go to a bonfire by a senior. I'm a freshman, so when a senior asks you to go to a bonfire with them, this was exciting of course i said i wanted to go. We got there and along with him were other seniors and sophomores, all of them i knew and i trusted. So the fire is burning bright and we're all laughing, things are going great! Well, that's when one of the sophomores pulls out moonshine. They pass it in a circle until i find the jar in front of me. I knew if i took it, it would make my grandmother roll over in her grave, so i passed it on to the guy who brought me. To my surprise, he passed it along to without taking any. As he was taking me back home he told me that all of them were idiots, referring to the moonshine. When he said that it had never made me more proud of my decision.

To die would be an adventure. If i would ever be able to sit down and speak to anyone who has taken that adventure i would want it to be Amelia Earhart. To me she is a hero. Not only was she the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, but think about the amount of courage and determination it must have took to do something the world wasn't used to seeing. I would ask her what she went through and what she did to earn that much courage and perseverance. I would ask her who encouraged her and, of course, what exactly happened out on the Atlantic.
