My mom was always in a relationship. She used to say she was in love with the idea of being in love, but never found the perfect man. Lets face in, the perfect man does not exist. She left my father not long after I was born, and married my first Stepfather Kyle. He was the best and treated me like I was his own child. He didn't have kids of his own and wanted to be a father to me, my father didn't come around much. Kyle taught me how to ride a bicycle, and always told me, no matter how many times I fall down, always get back up. I took that to heart and have lived by it most of my life, my life has not been easy.
Running a marathon is one of the biggest accomplishments you will ever achieve. It’s not easy, and it will hurt when you finish, but you will feel amazing. If you are thinking about signing up for a marathon here is my advise: do it. It won’t be easy, and there will be days when you feel like giving up, but keep going and never give up.
I bought my Play Station 3 in 2013, at the store I saw a copy of Tomb Raider. I didn't know too much about it, aside from the movies and the original Play Station games that came out years earlier. I picked it up and did what most people do: flipped it over and checked out the back cover. After a few minutes I decided to buy it and give it a try. I had no idea what I was getting myself in to, and to this day it has become one of my favorite games of all-time.
I love doing two things in life, running and travelling. One day I was sitting at my computer and thought, why not combine the two? You see, I have this goal to run a race in every state, and I love running so "runcation" was born. I am going to tell you about my Seattle runcation.
I have been playing video games since I was six years old. My aunt set me up on her Super Nintendo, to get me to leave her and my mom alone. I have been hooked ever since. I would ask to play every time I went to her house, and when I was eight years old my mom bought me a Super Nintendo for my birthday. She took me to the store after school and let me pick out a few games. Since then I have always had a gaming system or two. Right now I have three of my own, and yes I am a girl.
Growing up we're told we have to go to college. We must get a degree because that is the only way we can get a well paying job. But is that really true? I mean sure, some of the wealthiest people went to college and are making millions of dollars a year, but are they happy? I mean truly happy. They don't have the debilitating student loan debt because they have the resources to pay for it in full, or they were lucky enough to get a full ride scholarship. I had neither. Both my parents were poor and we never had money for anything extra and could barely pay the rent. Going to college for me was something my mother always wanted for me. When she died, I went back to school to honor her and what she wanted for me. Looking back, I wish I never went.
