College Preparatory English Final Assignment
In the 17 years I have lived,
I have watched the tragedy of others transform into my own.
I have experienced the death of my mother,
then I watched my family drift apart,
and I have held much more in than I intended to.
In my 17 years,
I have yearned for an intelligence deeper than what textbooks can give me;
developing a hunger for knowledge described as “unmatchable” and “unquenchable”,
then becoming discouraged that no such enlightenment exists.
In my 17 years,
there have been portions where I had decided my years were enough.
I didn’t want to live through any more.
In my 17 years I thought I had experienced more life than one person could bear,
but it’s only the beginning.
And I think I’m okay with that.

Live the life you’d be envious of if you saw someone else living it. This is my personal mantra. Whenever I’m going through a difficult time, like a breakup, and I’m wishing to be the person who could get over it and move on, I tell myself to be that person. Instead of waiting to be inspired by someone else and being jealous that they’re living a life I wish I had, I tell myself not to wait for that moment and to start being the person I want to be. If you wish you were the woman who went for that big promotion, learned a second language, dumped that guy who cheated on you, then just be that person. Think, if I have the energy to wish for it, I have the energy to do it.

Narrator: We knew the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love and even death… and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them.
