Hey guys, it’s Jade here!
No please, hold the applause. Calm your brain cells.
Today, we are going to take a dive into the life of Jade. I am a senior at Northwest Rankin High School (go cougars!) and am planning on graduating early in December. Not only am I a member of Generation Free (of course), I am also president of the Students Against Destructive Decisions club and co-president of the Bully Free Team at Northwest. Now that you know the basics, let’s dive on in.
I joined the Generation Team last year and am very grateful for the opportunity to serve on the board again this year. However, I didn’t just join the board to expand my resume for college. My main reason for joining was because my grandmother is a cigarette smoker and has developed macular degeneration. If you don’t know what macular degeneration is it is basically an eye disease that can cause blindness. Although my grandmother has already developed macular degeneration, I hope to prevent others from being harmed from tobacco.
On a less serious note, I want to share with you all the inner fascinations I have. To begin, DIY-ing. If you haven’t heard of what DIY is or can’t make sense of the acronym, it means Do It Yourself. I love to find unique projects on Pinterest or other sites. For example, I have a fascination with painting because my drawing skills are less than proficient. Therefore, all over my house are paintings and other projects I have created or “tried” to create. Honestly, I believe Walt Disney said it best when he said, “Ideas come from curiosity.”
Talking about Walt Disney, my obsession (some say its an addiction, but I could stop any time I wanted to… maybe) is DISNEY! Oh, it’s beautiful. All the characters, movies, parks, quotes. Everything. Since I was a small child, I have always loved Disney, especially Sleeping Beauty. My mom bought me a Sleeping Beauty’s costume dress when I was five and I wore it every single day until it magically disappeared (my mom still refuses that it was her). My senior quote this year is even Disney.
“I just finished the most amazing story.” – Belle (Beauty and the Beast)
So if you ever see me banging my head, dancing, or singing loudly in my car, it is usually to my Disney playlist.
Last on my list of fascinations are crime shows. Criminal Minds, all the NCIS shows, Hawaii Five-O, Law and Order: SVU (Special Victims Unit), and so many more. Actually, I feel like I could be a criminal profiler. For example, when someone decides to steal the last Atkins Caramel Chocolate Nut Roll bar (and yes, they are VERY delicious as are most granola bars) I can usually create an accurate profile. I am looking for a male between the ages of 14-15, probably a loner, probably lives with his mom, his mom’s name is most likely Jan, and probably unemployed, otherwise known as my brother. Not only that but I have obsession with the song Bad Boys.
“Bad boys, bad boys
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do
When they come for you?”
I don’t know how that isn’t catchy.
So guys, that’s me! Hope you enjoyed reading and please come back for more blog posts soon!
