This week I wanted to do someone very close to me. Adriana Stickles. She is a Junior at Santa Barbara High School and is also in the MAD academy. We dance together, meaning we spend almost every single day together. By spending so much time together we have gotten to know each other very well. I have learned that she is one if the sweetest, caring and funny people I know. We always laugh when we are together and usually it is about the weirdest things! I love her so much and I hope you enjoy reading!!
At first I would want to sleep in until noon but I’d remember it was my last day and I could sleep when i’m dead. Once I managed to wake myself up at 6 am, I would grab my closest friends and we would drive to Big Sur. As we drove we would blast my favorite childhood songs and sing at the top of our lungs. Just as the sun was rising we would have a morning picnic on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and just talk and enjoy each other’s presence. I would then take my dog for a walk along Santa Barbara’s beaches with my mom, dad, and brother. We would laugh a lot. After, I would go to the closest animal shelter and buy a bunny. I would take my bunny and my friends and my family and we would fly a helicopter to a few key places. I’m not sure where we found this helicopter but it happened to be there so we just hopped on. Also not sure who is flying it but hey if we crash i was going to die anyways. While it was still late morning we would fly to Lake Luise in Banff Canada. We wouldn’t spend a long time there but probably paddle out on the lake for a little while. We would then stop in Paris, France and eat lunch at a small cafe. Then I would go try on french designer gowns and spend some time painting or sketching Paris. Following we would fly to Phuket, Thailand and spend the afternoon on the beach in the warm tropical water. We would would eat a second lunch, and then head to South America. I would find a small village in need and spend the remainder of my day volunteering and donating my time to them, as I would want to leave this world with a lasting impact on the people in it. Since I’m dying at 16, I will not need my college funds and I would donate all of my money to the local people. I would find the sweetest kid in the village and give them my bunny I bought that morning to keep and take care of. Finally, I would fly back to San Francisco where I was born, and spend the night with everyone on a hill overlooking the golden gate bridge. We would talk until it was pitch black and just watch the stars. Last, I would hand out long letters I wrote personally to everyone expressing how much I love them and the impact they had on my life and me as a person. I’m not sure how to end this, so peace out and enjoy life while you still have it.”
