    It's a Long One

    I would say my dad. He's taught me a lot. He had a horrible, horrible childhood. His mom locked herself in her room and drank all day long. Thus, eight children were left to their own devices (not good). His dad was never home because he worked three jobs (one with 24 hour...

    My Best Bud

    I have just known him for going on two years,  he has been staying here with me a little over a month, and in that time he has taught me quite a bit.   To be a little more patient, to admit when i am wrong. That some people are worth fighting for. Not to let...

    How Could You Choose One?

    My High School Teacher

    He taught me to focus on my inner feelings and to let those feelings lead me through life.  I learned more about myself in “Honors English” than I had in all nine previous years of school combined.  This same teacher opened my eyes to the joys of journaling...

    Learning

    The person I have learned the most from is...myself. Sure, I learned things from my parents. I learned from my dad, to never trust anyone as far as I can throw them. I dont trust anyone much, thanks to him. I learned from my mom, to be a coward, and not stand up for herself. She...
