Humans of Ladue
"The grass is not always greener on the other side, and I fell like humans always have a tendency to think about what they don't have and what other people have. I think that comparing yourself to others, while it can be a good thing sometimes, I think it can be very negative and lead to sort of depressing thoughts. So, I think the best advice I'd give to someone is to be happy with who you are and...
"My greatest struggle in life is getting me to focus on what's most important in life. I'm always concentrated on materialistic things, although when I come to think of it family by far is one of the most important things to me.I never really realized it until certain moments, when you think about your limited time with your family.Which is why, that's one of my biggest struggles I have come by."
"Getting up in the morning, just kidding, not really. I guess finding clothes that fit me and don't look so feminine. I don't wear tank tops, or swim in public pools because I'm self conscious. I don't even swim in my own pool at home, its been a year. I don't want to wear baggy clothes either though, its a struggle."
“The highlight of my high school year is going to homecoming, making memories with my friends that I’ll never forget and going to sport games with my friends. I think, going to homecoming is important because it’s something you only get to do a couple of times in your life, and each time can be a different experience. You can go with different people and make fun memories that will last for a...
I don't like to open up to people especially if I don't know them very well. I have never opened up to anyone in my life because I chose to not have secrets and if I did no will know. I don't trust anyone that much, even my own parents. I hate opening up to people so badly I would rather have no secrets them tell a person how I feel. Even someone who is really close to me I haven't opened up to them....
"My biggest struggle right now would probably be trying to get everything organized between school, sports, work, friends, family and finding my identity. In high school we go through a lot of changes. We figure out what we want to do when we grow up and who we surround ourselves with. I say this because the people you're friends with now, reflect the people who you will be friends with in...
“Try hard at everything you do, don’t worry about what the outcome will be. As long as you try hard and work at it, it’s going to end up fine. You learn when you try and fail, not when you breeze through things."
"Okay, so, I was at camp, and it was at night. Our counselor was doing night duty, so we went out of our cabins and went out of the actual camp and started petting the horses. We felt rebellious and it was really fun. It made me feel joy because I bonded with my 'campies' and felt a connection with the horses. I hope that we can do more things like that at camp every year because when I was in that...
" I struggle with procrastination with homework, I just find it hard because as soon as I get home I take naps, and then once I wake up from the nap I just wanna get on my phone, so its kinds hard to get the power to do the homework. Pros is its a very good school, has a good education system, cons is like the students don't really interact with each other, like there certain groups. I want people...
"One of the people I've had the hardest time forgiving is still one of my best friends. In fourth grade we had some issues, that blew up in a way that really personally affected me, and affected her, and affected everybody that was involved. It took a couple years for us to solve and get over everything that happened then."
"Currently I hold down two jobs: one at the Ruth Park Golf Course, and the other at Spectrum E-Cycling, where I disassemble computers. Ideally, I'd like to monitor a YouTube community that helps me with any technology ideas. I recently made a subreddit for my YouTube, 'MCG Tech', and hopefully I can monetize my content and turn it into a side income."
"Playing tennis is the best way for me to decompress when I am stressed about school or anything else because I love to play sports, especially tennis. I always enjoy getting to compete, which eases my mind when it comes to stressful situations inside or outside of school. When I am playing tennis, I completely forget about my problems, and I feel like I am at total peace with myself. Regardless of...
"The biggest challenge for me is staying active on the waiver wire and not knowing when to pick up a player, knowing it'll put my waiver priority at the end. I like playing because it adds much incentive to the game when I watch too. I consider myself one of the best players in the Junior class."
“Things are going pretty good. I do very much (like working here). This is my sixth year here and my 14th year working in the special school district. We support the kids.”
