E-What grade are you in?
E-How old are you?
L- 16 years old
E- Can I ask you a couple of questions?
L- Yea go ahead.
E-First one is, how would you describe your 2022?
L-This year started off really strong. I got all of my work done, and I made sure to stay really energized by drinking lots of coffee. I started a ton of new habits. For example, sleeping for 8 hours and drinking enough water.
E-Alrighty, and on a scale from 1-10, how would you rate the year and why?
L- Id give this year a solid 7. This is because I wast able to do everything I wanted. I wasn’t able to travel to Mexico and I wasn’t able to visit my family members.But this year I did get a new kitten and I named her Salami.
E-Alright and what do you think your favorite memory this year is and why?
L-My favorite memory this year would have to be my birthday. This year I got a personalized ice cream cake and lots of money. I also went to my favorite restaurant.
E- Alrighty and if you could change one thing from this year what would it be and why would you want to change it?
L-Id like to change the fact that we have limited busses and too many students and I hate having to fit 3 students to a seat, when theres barely any room for 2.
E-What were you hoping for in the new year and if anything what will you be changing?
L- Im hoping to find a college that will best fit my views and my career choice as a nurse. I want to change how I veiw myself and others.
E-What do you think of the first semester that just ended?
L-This semester went really well for me and I ended up with really good grades and I wasn’t too stressed. Iff I ever ran into any problems, my teachers helped me out.
E- How would you describe grades and attendance?
L-My grades are above average and my attendance could use some work but hopefully i can fix this by next semester
E- and why do you think that you have those grades?
L- I work really hard for my grades and i make sure not to fool around and make sure to get all my work done.
E- And who is your biggest inspiration?
L- my biggest inspiration is my mom, she works non stop to be able to get us through life, and i hope i get to have the same motivation as she does.
E- perfect, and do you think this next semester will be better or worse?
L- I definitely feel next semester will be more challenging, but i kow i will be able to get through those challenges and end the semester strong.
E- and do you feel accomplished with how this semester ended?
