Part 3: Music That Moves Me.
During 8th grade graduation dance, the song Someone Like You by Adele came on and everyone was dancing with partners or groups to the song. It was slow and sad because it just reminded everyone that the dance could be the last time we are seeing each other because we are going into different schools. A big percentage of our class were going to Elk Grove High School and the other smaller percentage were going to Prospect. The lyrics from the song that gets to me every time is “You know how the time flies, only yesterday was the time of our lives. We were born and raised, in a summer haze, bound by the surprise of our glory days.”(1.50)To me this song and these lyrics just brings me back to that day when I danced with the people who meant so much to me for one last time in that school and when we all laughed together for one of the last time, also making the most of it by making memories that we will remember forever and dedicating the night to the people we’ve lost who inspired us to keep going. We all had a special bond between those three years that is hard to forget, but now we are all separated and all that is now just a memory for the good times, but even if we go to different schools now we would always be the Friendship Class of 2016.

Part 6: 3 People I Admire That Inspire Me
- Roberta Pardo (Dulce Maria)
Roberta Pardo is a character from the Mexican telenovela Rebelde which started in 2004 and ended in 2006. Rebelde is translated to Rebel In English. She is played by Dulce Maria a Mexican actress. In the show, after her father threatens to gain full custody of her and take her to live with him in Spain, she is forced to be put into a boarding school called Elite Way School where she meets a group of people her age. Throughout the show she comes cross many hardships and injustices. She despises the injustices and fights for it to stop. Roberta protests for the things that she believes that is believes is unfair. She also fights for the things and the people she loves and she is not afraid of the consequences that comes with it. She’s a little crazy and rebellious but that’s what makes her who she is. She never gives up until she achieves what she wants and she never lets anyone humiliate her or look down on her and that’s why she inspires me.
Halsey is an American singer and songwriter. She writes electropop/alternative music. She is one of the most inspiring singers. I love her music, she has a deep meaning to each that shows how society these days is so messed up and how her life is a wreck but she makes it out. She also has a unique sound to her voice that just makes it all better. Halsey tweets respond to unfair causes and she fights for what she believes in and supports her fans. She is such a great role model and I really wish I had her courage.
3. Stephanie Zamarron (Guera)
Stephanie was the most strongest and bravest person I’ve ever met. She is an angel, even though she’s had her moments, I appreciate all that I’ve learned from her. She’s been my friend since the 3rd or 4th grade and I’ve known her since 2nd. She was always the most smartest, kindest but also the loneliest person I knew. I remember in 7th grade when we were talking about having our Quinceñeras, she already had her dress picked out and she was so excited for it. I learned that life is too short to be second guessing things and that we should cherish the life we were given because you never know what you’re missing out on until it’s to late. I also learned that we should always try to be kind to one another because you never really know what someone is going through everyday. Someone can easily put on a happy face and act like everything’s alright but what you really feel on the inside is a feeling where you’re stuck in the darkness and you don’t know how to get out. I had the honor to be her friend and apart of her life as she was in mine in the past 7 years. She had been through a lot in her 14 years she got to live, and I regret not being there for her through most of it but it makes me feel better that I was there for her through parts of it and that’s better than nothing. In the past 4 months since her death I learned so much. I miss her more everyday and I know she’s always gonna be watching over us and in our hearts.
Part 7: A quote to live by
If only we could see the the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless. -John Green, Looking For Alaska
