As I think back on my life, a few points stand out as significant. The day I graduated high school, the day I moved away from my parents house, and my wedding day. But above all, one of the most significant times I can remember in my life is the day I found out that I was pregnant with our first baby. I remember that when my mother-in-law first told me that she thought I was pregnant I didn 't believe her. I was not sick, I didn 't feel pregnant. She and my fiance were the ones that were getting sick every morning. One morning she handed me a pregnancy test. Reluctantly, I took the test. I didn 't even have to wait the two minutes, the test basically screamed at me that I was, in fact, pregnant. I came out of the bathroom in tears and the first thing I heard was "I told you so!". My mother-in-law was right, I couldn 't believe it. I ran to my room and woke up my fiance. I told him that I was pregnant and he was in shock and happy, but I did not expect him to go right back to sleep after I told him. It was hard to believe because out of all of the pregnancy symptoms I had heard of, I didn 't have any. It didn 't take long for me to be convinced that I really was pregnant. I became so sick. I would wake up sick, and go to bed sick. The smell of most foods, especially Mexican food, made me nauseous. My fiances and his family are hispanic so there was always some kind of mexican food cooking. I had heartburn all day long, and I lived in the bathroom. My fiance and mother-in-law were always right there with me making sure I had what I needed to survive the day. I honestly believe my first trimester would have been much harder without the two of them by my side.
During this time many emotions were affecting us. Yes, we were happy, b...

... got to hold my beautiful daughter. In the room with me was my mother-in-law, my husband and my husbands grandma. That was the best support team I could have possibly asked for. I would not have been as strong as I was without them holding my hands, helping me. My daughter was finally born at 2:03 AM. The first time I held my daughter was amazing. She was perfect in every way possible. I remember, thinking how did I get so lucky. I remember being so tired. I didn 't know what time it was or how long I had been there.
Looking back on this time in my life makes me proud. I 'm proud of my husband and myself for turning a complicated time into something great. My husband and I have been married for eight years now, and are expecting our third baby due next year. No matter how hard things got, we never gave up on each other. And it all started with one baby girl.

- Being the average high school student, I always wanted to succeed. Failure was not an option in anything I did. It was just how my mom raised me, to be just like her. My mom would always say, failure will never overtake if my desire to succeed is strong. During my senior year of high school, I decided to challenge myself by taking my first AP class, AP Literature. Albeit, I completely dislike literature, but I wanted to push my boundaries. I dislike literature because of the reading of sophisticated novels and sometimes I didn’t understand as well as the other students in the class, but I wasn’t going to let that deter me....

- Sitting in the passenger seat of my families’ minivan I nervously wait to pull into the school parking lot. As we turn the corner my legs begin to shake and my palms are getting clammy, this is my first day of high school. All I could do was think about the dramatic change in class size, I am coming from a school where there are only about three hundred kids in the entire school to a school where there are about three thousand kids in the entire school. This would not be as scary of experience except for the fact that the majority of the kids from my middle school went to the high school on the other side of town....

- When you think of an academy, you automatically imagine a prestigious, successful, advanced school with high standards. Those were my expectations when I applied for the new Early College Academy at Southridge in Spring Independent School District. And without a doubt I was disappointed at what I actually saw. Early College Academy at Southridge (ECAS) was a school made up of portables in an open and barely protected area. My first day of high school was the worst; it rained, and normal high schools don’t fret over such little matters but my high school didn’t have a roof, which meant that all my brand new school supplies and new clothes got soaked and ruined before I really got to use them...

- Phoebe fell haphazardly into friendship with Allison on the first day of high school. She had been walking confidently in the direction of her next class.

Unable to recognize a single face in the flocks of students flapping past down the corridor, and left with no other option, she summoned the courage to ask someone for help. Noticing another four-eyed girl, inconvenienced as she was with big stupid glasses on her face, Phoebe spluttered out an awkward, yet enthusiastic greeting, and babbled about directions to the science labs....

- Senior Paper As a kid I often wondered what it would be like to be in high school, how I would be and who I would become. I often heard my siblings talking about how great it was, all the freedom they had gained, and all the great classes the school had to offer. It felt like ages before it would be my turn to get lost in the infinite stream of halls and find out who I wanted to become. To my surprise the first day of high school would quickly approach. It feels like just yesterday that the Blackfoot high school counselors were at my middle school giving our eight-grade class a high school orientation and administrating the paper work to apply for our upcoming school year courses....
