SORRY EVERYBODY!!! I haven't been on my computer for such a long time, since it's been.. well, under construction (it feels like it's always breaking) Anywho, I'm very sorry, and I hope to catch up with everyone!!!! Thank you, love you all! :)
Also, if you want to talk to me more, you can add me as a friend on my facebook! Just look for my name :D
I've been surviving my rocky life for 16 years now, yet I can never really describe who I am in words, so bare with me. My name is Stephanie Bonilla- born in Guayama, Puerto Rico though I look straight up Italian, like my mother. My parents didn't wait long after my birth to decide to make my two brothers and me move to the United States. It's a shame I never saw my birth place ever again, not that I remember anything from there anyway.
I guess I'm happy to say that I live with both of my parents. They aren't the Brady Bunch family type, but they do try their best to put up with me and for that I am grateful. I have two older brothers, Adrian (20) and Elias (19)- both being in the military.Adrian just came back from Afghanistan this summer due to injuries from an explosion and I thank God for protecting him. I am so very proud of them, especially since I don't have the balls to sign up for any military branch. I have countless cousins, aunts, and uncles, so you can only imagine how crazy my family can get, but all in all, I can't imagine my life any different than it is now.
I have no boyfriends, though I wouldn't mind having a NORMAL one. I'm not the typical high school girl who gets into dumb short relationships- well, at least not on purpose. I DO like flirting though (who doesn't?). I am in absolutly no rush to get into a relationship, but I won't pull away if one approaches me.
According to everyone around me, I am the kind of person that likes to keep it real and I seem to be kind of mature (for my age, that is) which tends to attract the attention of my dear classmates and friends. I'm practically a personal psychiatris for those around me, but that doesn't mean I don't have problems of my own. They seem to all open up to me, may be because they know I too have problems and that I'm not Miss Perfect, plus I'm the only person that would actually listen wothout interruptions. With all of this, I could never really get MY feelings out to everyone, not that I want my life out to the open.
There is one person out there that I can thankfully call my true best friend. Ataile and I have known eachother since the fourth grade and it seems like we get closer every year. I love her deeply as a person and I would give my life to save hers. She is the sister I never had and it's so amazing how close we've stayed, even at the start of high school, when most kids give up their middle school buddies and start their new lives. Atalie is as real as a person can get and is the only person that knows everything about me.
I am an honor roll student at my high school and I am an artist in the 'Libety Life', our high school newspaper club. I love to draw as much as I love to write, hoping to get accepted to Syracuse University, getting into English Literature.
I am a pretty sweet kid, so talk to me if you ever get the chance and have a kickass life!!!!
Take away my arts and you have taken away my future.
Take away my family and you have taken away my history.
Take away my love and you have taken away my heart.
I can live with this.
But take away my friend and you taken away my soul and THAT I cannot possibly live without.
Start everyday with a smile, though yesterday might have been bitterly cold, for everyday is a new opportunity for happiness and that is nothing to frown upon.
She was a part of me. She meant everything to me. I would've died for her, just so she could live a few more minutes. She was my best friend. My partner in crime. My life. Now she's gone and I haven't been so lost. So alone. I am no longer upset with her, so there is no anger in my heart. That anger has been replaced with something cold- something so sad that if I wasn't strong enough, I don't think I could survive. I'm not even sure what's holding me together RIGHT NOW. I threw myself into my work, now that's done and I have no where else to escape to. Where can I go? Where can I escape to just to leave this aching feeling I have in the pit of my stomach? My life.
To reunite with someone whom you were once afraid to even speak to is just the greatest moment in which you can live.
Tall? Yesh :)
Single? Yep :(
Why? The last guy was a douche
Pretty? Dunno. Guys tend to hit on me. Ask them.
Talkative? Not too talkative. My friends manage to get their feelings in all the time :)
Good at art? Kinda
Awesome? Talk to me to find out :)
I'm into going out, reading , sketching, chillin with friends- the typical teenage things. I love listening to music, going to the movies, and just relaxing outside by myself for hours at a time- not having to worry so much about what's going on in my life. It's funny actually, I could have the worst day of my life, and I could totally start a new day with a sunny smile on my face. Why obsess with the gloomy day before when you have a beautiful day waiting for you right in front of your face?
Dexter, Grey's Anatomy, Weeds, United States of Tara some anime i guess. I'm not really into tv.
I love The Breakfast Club, The Holiday, Taken, Fast and the Furious- Tokyo Drift, Dazed and Confused, and a lot of other movies.
I watched Zombieland the other day. It was truly the best zombie movie I have ever come to witness-- well, besides Shaun of the Dead
Tweak by Nic Sheff; Impulse, Identical, Burned By Ellen Hopkins; A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. I'm reading a book for my English class, The Catcher and the Rye. It truly picks at and frames the truth of human behavior and all the phoniness/ hypocracy we have to live with. It is a book that is beyond doubt the best book you can honestly compare your own life to. I love reading and if anyone has any requests, please tell me. :)
