-im addicted to Jesus & music.
-my new years resolution was to be a more positive person.
-im a sophomore in highschool
-i am in love, and i take it very seriously. dating turns into marriage, so i cant afford to kid around with it.
-i take medicine for anxiety.
-im a very honest person, but i speak the truth in love.
-i want to actually DO something in this world, not just TALK about doing things.
-i dont want to conform to the world's idea of what a "teenager" is. im MORE than a teenager. im not going to lower my expectations for myself just because society has lowered their expectations for the "teenager." these are some of the best years of my life, & im NOT going to waste them.
-im a dreamer, & i think that's a good thing (:
-i am a christian, and that is the most important part of my life.
-i am somewhat dyslexic, but thats okay with me.
me: creative, silly, & crazy
im just melanie, nothing more than that.
my hobbies: drawing, playing piano, painting, hablando con jesus, & friends
job: writing, drawing, & making chalk paintings (:
"im done with lowering my standards i have for myself. i will no longer live below my ability level, and im done with the low expectations adults assume we need. teenagers have a lot of talent, and im sick of wasting mine. it's time for me to thrive and use my life for something. it's time to live & set my talents free (:
it's never too soon to shift out of shapeless idleness, run from the past, and finally fall into the comfort of new chances.
i want to use my teenage years as years in which i use to launch the rest of my life. as many teens waste this time, i want to be striving & becoming the me i want to be. the most valuble years of my life won't be wasted, opportunities will not be lost. i have broken free of the lies holding me down, the chains that low expectations have wrapped around my own self are gone. im free to thrive, free to be me.
im just sick of being held inside a box. adults think all teenagers are only concerned with texting, computers, and boyfriends. that is NOT true. some of us want to do something with our teenage years, instead of wasting them.
did you know that the word teenager wasn't even invented until the 1900's? before that a person like us would be working, and using their abilities for the common good. why did that have to change?
does anybody really enjoy being held captive in the ruts of low expectations? does anyone enjoy having people assume that they CANT do something, just because of age?" - melanie
"The education you have earned and received gives you unique status and unique responsibilities... That is your privilege and your burden. If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice; if you choose to identify not only with the powerful, but with the powerless; if you retain the ability to imagine yourselves into the lives of those who do not have your advantages, then it will not only be your proud families who celebrate your existence, but thousands and millions of people whose reality you have helped transform for the better. We do not need magic to change the world; we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better." -jk rowling
"The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend."
"If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michaelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music..... Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well." -mlk jr.
