  1. My Favorite Poem

    April 25, 2014 by hopev227

    I was inspired to write this about my life.
    I am the girl with thick chocolate hair

    The one you will always find with headphones in

    You will find me diving into teen novels

    The girl who paints her nails black

    With one red explaining herself

    Who takes a stand even when no one else will stand with her

    A risk taker who is not afraid to fly

    I am a wild spirit

  2. Team 3

    Yesterday I got the worlds worse news, a close family friend had passed away after injuries sustained to the head after being hit by a car. He was 19. I found out before the Pre-UIL choir concert. And I broke down. He had been so full of life and so loving and caring. He was a lacrosse player at Westlake before he graduated in 2012. He was a midfielder and one of the best ones we have ever had. Last night I didn’t think I could perform. I was devastated. But someone told me that my choir is my team and he was on a lacrosse team. You half to show up for the team and do your best. They said this is what he would’ve wanted. As hard as it was, I did it the whole time just repeating those words. But you can’t give up. Even in the wake of tragedy, you can’t give up. You half to keep going and do your best. You half to show up for your team even if it’s during a time of mourning the lose of someone. His death had taught me 3 things and ironically his lacrosse number was three. The three things I’ve learned are: 1) you half to show up for your team 2) you have to set a goal and 3) no matter how hard it is you half to try and conquer that goal. Life is hard, but no matter how hard it gets, you have to show up for your team and you half to be their for your team. You half to stay strong and no matter what, you can’t give up.

  3. Media and Memorie: Aladdin

    April 9, 2014 by hopev227




    Growing up I WAS OBSESSED with the Disney movie/musical “Aladdin”! It was just amazing to watch a low life thief transform into this wealthy prince and steal a princess’s heart. It would captivate me for hours and hours. I would just sit in front of the TV and sing in my little toddler voice along to every single song! And then I would force my poor Mom to rewind it so I could watch it over and over again! Aladdin was a huge inspiration to me because he taught me that no matter what you have been classified to be you can break society’s mold and be whatever you want.
    Jasmine also taught me what real beauty is. Jasmine is gorgeous but she also had a heart and that is real beauty. She was loving, caring, and compassionate. She had this essence about her personality that was bold, adventurous, and rebellious. She taught me that no matter who you are or what you look like, you’re beautiful.
    Also the Genie. Oh the Genie. He was HILARIOUS and always put a smile on my face. I could rematch all of his scenes. But he taught me that even the people that seem the happiest can be depressed. But you can get over that depression. That you can’t let your problems get in the way of your happiness because everyone deserves to be happy.
    Aladdin was the best growing up. I remember it and now I really want to go watch it. It’s the little things when we were little that mean the most to us now. I know that this movie means the world to me. And I can still hear that lyric that has stuck with me all of these years, “a whole new world!”
