What was your first car? My first car was a 93 Subaru impreza, and it's still running today! 

Who was the first person who you cared more about their well being than your own? My mom, we have our moments but we always figure things out.

when was the first time you got stitches? I was 7 and I got them on the back of my head from banging my head on the bottom of a table. I remember I was sad for weeks because it was summer and I couldn't go swimming. The camp counselor of the YMCA I was at for "daycare" felt bad so she would always buy me candy. :) 

When was the first time you stayed up all night and watched the sunrise? It was my 16th birthday, I didn't want to miss a single part of that day. 

What was the first thing you learned to cook? A grilled cheese, it took me a while, I never messed up the grilled cheese but I would leave my spatula on the burner, it was a never ending mess. 

What was your first paying job? It was at a vet kennel. I had volunteered there for so long that when I turned 16 they automatically offered me a job. 

When was the first time you flew on an airplane? I don't remember my exact age, but I do know that I was little because my mom said that everyone was happy because I didn't cry the whole time. 

What was the first concert you went to see? Stevie Nicks at Red Rocks on my 16th birthday 

What was the first professional sporting event you went to?The Colorado Avalanche, my dad got 3 tickets through his work so my whole family was able to attend. 

How old were you when you first left home? 21, I moved to Minnesota. That was the scariest thing I have ever done but I wouldn't take it back for anything. I learned so much about myself.

When you the first time you cut class? 14, I never really wanted to be in class. 

How old where you when you had your first kiss? 15, it was in a game of truth or dare in my guitar class that I had at school.

How old where you when you got your first computer? I got my parents old old old hp that took an hour to start up. When I got this I was about 14. After that thing finally died I got my very own laptop that I bought myself at 18.

When was the first time you stood up for your self? I was in elementary school, I didn't like how the teacher wouldn't let me go to the bathroom so I stood up in front of the class and said "I really have to go so you let me go or I am telling on you" which as we all know telling on someone is a very big deal. :)

The Things About Life I Wish People Would Have Told Me

Within life, I am not the best, I have failed at many things that I have tried which makes me never want to do anything. This has slowly formed into one of my worst problems but because of this I have learned a lot, some of it I wish people had told me sooner.

1. Most people don't know what they are doing either
2. Don't let people get you down.
3. Someone will be better than you at somethings and you will be better then them at somethings.
4. Don't fret the little things.
5. Eat well and exercise.
6. If someone makes fun of you for doing something they are probably jealous of you.
7. Life is to short to be around people that make you cry.
8. It is okay to express your opinion.
9. You will make mistakes and some of them will be huge, that is okay.
10. It's not where you have been, its who your with.
11. If you don't feel comfortable doing something you probably should't do it.
12. Don't live in the past. You can't move forward that way.
13. The genre of music you grow up with will always be better than every other generation.
14. There is always something new to learn no matter how old you are.
15. You will not be good at everything.
16. Some of your best friends will end up being enemies.
17. If you love doing something don't let other people think that you are bad at it and should no longer do it.
18. You are awesome.
19. Don't run away from something that is amazing.
20. You will have huge aspirations as a high school graduate and you will not complete most of them
21. Do well in school, it may not seem like a big deal, but it is.
22. Be who you are.
23. Having imperfections is more interesting then being perfect all the time.
24. Money isn't everything.
25, It's never to late to pursue what you love

Where Friendship Goes Wrong: A True Story: Wait...What Happened?

"Tell me more" Anna says as she glances past her friends, not really paying attention. She had her eyes on all the boys that had been trying to make her life hell. She was trying to read them to figure out their next move. Ashton snaps his fingers in front of her face to get attention. Anna snaps out of it and says "wait what, what'd I miss?" She looks down and her arm had blood all over it. Anna had a rubber band on her arm that she started snapping when she was nervous. Aston looks at her and says "just because they did that to you doesn't mean you need to start doing this." Anna looks at him and then starts staring past him again. He moves her leg with his to try and get her attention again. "What!" she screams. "You need to stop" he says, "Come on we are leaving." As he grabs her by the strap of her backpack she is still trying to stare at them. They make is outside in the court yard by the lunchroom and he grabs her by her face and says "Just because they did this, does not mean you need to become obsessed." Anna looks at the floor and says "But it's just not fair. Why do they get to pour pop in my back pack, trip me, call me a fat ass whenever I eat and vandalize my locker...again." Still looking at her he says "they just want to get a rise out of you." The three boys come outside and start calling Anna a bitch. A frustrated Anna runs up and kicks the one boy in the crotch.

The other two boys continue calling her a bitch, but their words have no effect on her. They speak and their words are broken. Broken like their lives crumbling through their fingers. Anna looks around her and she had become comfortably numb. When she came back to her senses the person she wanted to run to wasn't Ashton, Jenny, Ashley or Jax. It was Remy, but Remy was just a vision she had in her phone. He will never be their for her except through text and the occasional picture. No one even knew about him, she wanted to keep that part of her life as much of a secret as possible. It wasn't like she was cheating on Ashton or anything. He was a break from the crazy, a whole new world that she could isolate herself in if she wanted to. She stops thinking looks at the floor and sees the boy clinching his stomach, she turns around and says "What did I do?"
