Facing my fears

Facing Fears

In 2018, when my school was preparing for the culmination, we were offered to do
speeches. Me and my friend alejandra decided to do one. We both spent time
writing our speeches during lunch, one day during practice i realized i was going to
have to talk to a room filled with people.

The next day during lunch i talked to alejandra about it “i don't know if i still want to
do the speeches” i told her “why?’’ she asked “ because there's going to be a lot of
people” “ok?’’ she sounded confused. “What if i trip on stage and everyone laughs
or there's an awkward silence’’ I saw the fear on her face “yeah, i'm not doing the
speech anymore” “well i still don't know what i'm going to do”

Once school was over, my mom picked me up and we went home. I told her about
it and she said that she would be proud either way but it would be better if i did it
because it would help me with my fears in the future

Facing my fears part.2

In the morning, I made a decision and went to school, I got to the classroom. After
we all ate, my teacher started talking about the culmination “okay, so viviana and
alejandra, have you guys finished your speeches” she asked. I raised my hand
“i'm not doing mine anymore” I said “ are you sure” she asked. I nodded, “I’m not
doing mine either.” Alejandra had added shortly after A week had passed and
culmination was 3 days away, we were practicing when one of the kids from the
other class did his speech. I sorta wanted to do mine but at the same time i didn't,
when we got back to the classroom. I went up to my teacher “can I still do my
speech” I asked. “Yes but viviana you only have 3 days, do you think you can
make one in time” I nodded. When i got home, I started doing my speech after i
had a draft, I started to edit it.

Three days later, it was time I got in my dress and went to school, the whole class
took a photo. We went to the auditorium and got in out seats. I saw both my
parents “good morning, we out here today for our 5th graders soon be be 6th
graders next year” the principal said and continued with what she had to say. “Now
some of our students decided to do speeches” she called our names and we went
to the small stairs behind the stage. I was really regretting it now but it's too late to
turn back now.

One of the students did there speech it had to take him a couple minutes but for
me it felt like seconds “Now Viviana Ortiz” the principal said “dont fall,don't
fall,don't fall” I whispered to myself until i got to the mic. Everyone eyes went on
me, “Good morning, John mack, students and parents” I paused “it felt like
yesterday I was

Facing my fears part 4

Making new friends, now im saying bye to them but im not ready. I would like to
say thank you to all my teachers from over the years” I said and continued with my
speech, once I was finished. Everyone clapped, it wasn't that bad. I carefully went
down the small amount of stairs, I was still scared of falling.
After culmination was over, I saw my parents, they both told me how proud they
were. The three of us went out to eat and overall I had a lot of fun.

Not as bad as i expected

August 16 2021, my mom woke me up and told me to get ready for school
before she went to work. I got up and found a outfit to wear then I
straighten my hair. I cried while i was doing that, i didn't want to go back.
I would have to see people and talk to them. After an hour of telling
myself how everything could go wrong, I finished getting ready and played
with my cat while I waited for my mom to text me. Around 7:40 she
texted me telling me she was outside, I locked the door and went to the
car, My mom told me how nice I looked and how excited she was for me to
go back. She dropped me off at the gas station close the school and from
there I walked, when i got in front of the school there was a long line. I
had trouble getting my daily pass, at 9:00 I finally got in. I had to get
covid tested and went to white hall and got tested. It was stressful and I
started crying again.
After I got my results and it was negative, I went to my homeroom
teacher and

Not as bad as I expected

I got my schedule, I went to my english class room 26, I went there
and she talked about the class rules. Then it was nertriction, I
decided to wait outside my next class. As I walked to math, i bump
into my friend, I told her how the day was going for me and she told
me how it was for her. Soon friction was over and I went to math
class. I went to all my classes, at lunch I saw my friend again.
Once school was over, my mom picked me up and I told how my day,
then i realized the day wasn't as bad I expected

Best Birthday Gift

Best Birthday Gift

When I was in 6th grade, my parents put me in the after
school program, my dad wanted to put me in dance and my mom
agreed. I didn't want too,I cried from how much I didn't
want to go. I cried from how much I didn't want to go but
they made me go anyway my dad was happy and my mom didn't
really care much. I kept trying to figure ways to get out of
dance but none of them worked.I remembered that my birthday
was coming up and as my gift, it would work both ways
because they wouldn't have to spend anything on me and I
would get out.

Best Birthday Gift

When it came time for my birthday, I had it all planned out,
I had my mom sit next to me and I called my dad. I explained
everything and how it benefits them, After a long time
trying to convince my dad I finally did. The next day my mom
put me in learning zone away from dance. My dad sometimes
tried to convince me to go back but I always turned it down.
At some point he stopped trying. That was the best birthday
gift.

13 birthday

2 weeks ago, on the weekend I was with my dad and his side of the family. On saturday it was
my birthday, my dad asked me if I wanted a party or something. At first I said no but then
decided to have a carne asada with family and friends. On the day of my birthday in the
morning me,my dad,siblings and step-mom went out to eat. We got home and dropped off my
siblings and step mom at the house because me and my dad went to bank and got be a debit
card, when we got home, my dad dropped me off and he went to the store to get some things.
While they were at the store, My cousin called me, telling me happy birthday, my grandma
called me and told me happy birthday and asked what I was doing for my birthday. I had
hang up because my brother grandparents and my cousin came over, me and cousin went to
my room, we talked while she did her make-up. I straightened my hair and put on a grey dress.

13 birthday

People started coming over, my brother wanted to get in the pool so I changed into my bathing
suit and got in with him and so did my cousin. We played colors and swam after we got tired
and got out. When I showed my cousin went in after me, I went to my room and went on my
phone when my uncle called me and told me happy birthday and checked up on me. I stayed on
call with him until I had to go outside to cut the cake and open presents.We cut the cake and I
found out the cake flavour was banna, then I opened the presents, I got clothes and money.

It started getting late, everyone left and got ready for the bed. Thats how my 13 birthday went.
