Tell me about the friends that you’ve made through your school years.
I’ve made plenty of friends throughout my 12 years of school. I don’t plan on keeping all of them around for the rest of my life. There are about four to five great people who I would love to know forever.
What is your favorite time of the day/week/ or month and why?
My favorite time of the week is Saturday mornings. I don’t have to wake up early. I could sleep the whole day away if I wanted to without having to worry about anything.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
If I won the lottery, I would not tell anyone at first. I would make a list of all the people I love and care about and think about if they would share something like this with me. I would then ration out the money with all of the ones who deserve it, give it to them, and let them know that this is all they will get. Once everyone has what they need, I will buy myself what I want and set the rest of the money in an account and invest.
What do you miss most about being a kid?
The thing I miss most about being a kid is the size of the world. When I was little the world was my family, our neighborhood, and our town. I didn’t know about all of the bad things in the world. I was innocent and happy, and life was great.
The best advice you would give 10-year-old you.
You just lost your granddad recently and life has been kind of tough. He was your best friend, and you seem to have still not gotten over him being gone. I just want you to know that it gets better; life gets better. Faster than you know it, you will be entering middle school and then high school, and life doesn’t slow down there. It keeps going and going and everything is going to be all right.
What is your favorite indoor activity?
My favorite indoor activity is watching movies and eating. It’s such a relaxing and happy time for me.
If you could learn to do anything what would it be?
If I could learn to do anything, I would choose painting. Art is fascinating and it consumes you. Art is like a different world.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
If I could meet anyone, living or dead, I would love to meet Beyonce’. She is a wonderful person and I love her music. She is so beautiful and I would do anything to meet her.
If you could thank anyone who would it be?
I would like to thank God for everything, including every mistake, good choice, and lesson I’ve learned. Without God, I couldn’t have done anything in my life.
