I actually don’t know how to really start this post. So I’m going to go like this. People always think I’m inspiring, which I don’t know why. I don’t think I’ll ever understand it fully of why people think that, and since I love mysterious. I kind of want to keep that one a mystery. I don’t want an answer because half the time, I probably will ignore it or not believe a word you say. Even though I don’t believe I’m inspiration, I think there are different people in this world who are. I get influenced by people easily. It takes the littlest things you do that will get my attention and I will never be the same. However, not all of that is a good thing. The bad influences I’ve found throughout the years have been lessons learned. So who influence me? It’s all over the place actually. I’ve lived a long time now and met a lot of people. Some years have been better than others, but that’s the part of life.
Here’s a list of people who have influenced me throughout my life, and some are in groups. I’m not really big with singling people out unless they really deserve it, not saying some people don’t deserve it. For something like this, keeping everybody in a group is much easier on me to keep everybody straight in my head.
- God – This was a given. God has always been there for me, and will always be there for me. He made me this way, has me going through this life with all of its hardships, and his guiding me through it. He’s the one bringing and taking out the people around me for reasons I can’t explain sometimes. And he’s got a good sense of humor too.
- Family – My mom, dad, and my sister Emily. As much as they drive me nuts. I love them dearly. I always think about what if my parents thought they couldn’t raise me, and they had to give me up. I’d be a completely different person I think. Emily, she’s had to deal with my stupid rants when we were little. Always had to watch over me, but I still thought she was the prettier girl. You don’t want to mess with her. Both sides of my grandparents and families. Lots of people, and lots of love. Even if you don’t think it’s there, it’s just hidden way back in the back.
- Friends – All the friends I’ve had have been a big influence on me. Most recently actually. Some have influenced to not care anymore. They’ve pushed me away, so I might as well face the facts and stop fighting for somebody whose not there anymore. I’ve had lots of friends, lots of memories, and stories I could tell for days. (I’m actually getting ideas as we speak.) To the ones that I do keep up with on Facebook, I am amazed you still bother to talk to me. To all my Twitter friends, they have been inspiring to talk to for the past two years. I’ve learned to not always be afraid to talk to different people. I want to visit their countries one day, and meet them.
- Teachers – I haven’t been in college in a year. I’ve been a graduate for almost two years. That’s a scary thought! I remember most of all the teachers that were always around me on a daily basis. From first grade and on, man! It’s a lot of people to remember over the years. Besides the teachers, I have to include the aides who have been around me when I was school. Even though I was probably trouble in school sometimes, I was still good. In a sense at least. For some odd reason, they knew how to handle me well. The stories that I have in my head of our high school lunch table. Oh my god! We had fun! Lots of laughs that’s for sure!
