Haha, what is her name? Is she one of the newer generation models?
Well, there’s not much to this. I just combined the last four letter of my first name and the first two letters of my middle name and BAM! — Raineni; Pronounce it however you like: “Rainey” or “Rye-neh-knee” or “Ray-neh-knee”.
And then, C’est La Vie.
“Say La Vie.”
“La Vie.” — Easy A, Olive & Todd
Well, that’s not why my name is that. I love this phrase. Although “That’s life” is just a simple phrase, it sounds so much better in another language. I love how the French translation sounds when you pronounce it correctly.
In 10 years, I will be 26.
Hopefully, finally considering myself a CRNA or earlier. Maybe even in Med! I see myself married. With a kid on the way or planning to have one c(:
I’ve heard 26 or 27 was a good age to have a child. It all depends!
I see myself NOT in Texas or, at least, not in the Valley.
So accomplishments from now until then: BSN, practicing in ICU, attending or finished with CRNA school.
I just want you to know, whoever you are, I want to wake up knowing you’ll be there for me every step up of the way. I want to know that you aren’t one of those people that will get up and leave as you please. With you, I want to know that you want me to shoot for the mooon; that either way, I’ll fall on a star. I can fly high in the sky without any fears just as long as you’re there every flutter of the way.
Because I have no homework and I am completely bored with nothing to read, this will be rather long.
Okay, so I’m Lorraine Nicole Gonzales. The majority of people I know stick to calling me either Nikki or Lorraine. I honestly don’t mind; it’s whatever floats your boat. Mix it up. Be creative with my name.
I am your average 16 year old girl. A Filipino one at that. So without a doubt, I am passionate for many things - especially…people. I am a Seventh-day Adventist and I LOVE God. I’ve been on a roller coaster with my place in church, though. I’m in, I’m out, vice versa. But no matter what, God will always be my focus. Actually scratch that. I am NOT your average 16 year old girl. Quite frankly I do not even know what average is. No, I don’t have a low self-esteem and no, I am not being cocky. In all humbleness, I have no idea how to describe “average”.
I was born in Bacolod, Philippines then moved to America when I was over a year old. First, to California (temporarily), then to Louisiana and finally to where I currently am - Texas.
I enjoy music. It sets me in an aspirational mood of some sort. I sing, play piano and viola. Certainly I would not mind learning new instruments. If I had all the time in the world and had money for it, I would read every book that intrigues me. Although I haven’t been on track with what I want to do with my life lately, I DO know what I am to do with my life - the medical field (Aiming for Nurse Anesthesia or better).
Coincidentally Purposely I go to South Texas High School of Health Professions aka Med High. I enjoy this public school because of the lack of students. I strive to be Top 20 in my class or even Top 10% or maybe just Top 10.
Of course, I know there is a life beyond high school and I want that now. HS drama is stupid and overemphasized. I dream to be living OUT of Texas after I’ve concluded all my matters here. I want to go to an SDA University. I was thinking about LLU or SWAU. I would LOVE to travel abroad. Perhaps in Italy or Argentina! Speaking of traveling, I want to visit the 7 wonders of the world - natural and man-made.
This may sound silly, but since I was little I have either wanted to be a gymnast or a ballerina. But because these things are rather money consuming, I never was able to be in either one. I love the strength, power and endurance of a gymnast but I also love the grace and extensions of a ballerina. Moreover,for both, I love the perseverance and passion that comes with each.
I am more of a dreamer than an actual do-goer.
This is why I love watching shows that are aspirational like Make It or Break It, I suppose :) — Favorite show.
As you can see, I like to rant as long as I don’t have to say it face to face.
I missed telling YOU things.
Without having to worry about clandestine judgments.
Haha, yes! But we still haven’t hung out :/
Love, God” —Thanks for showing me this, cousin.
I’m finally finding my mojo in Math and Physics.
Now, for AP English….
So, we took the Mock Exam today.
AP Multiple choice was ridiculous but the essays seemed pretty okay.
Thanks to Christian and Tali, we almost got our tests thrown in the trash!
“Pep-per-ro-ni…Pine-ap-ple” - WOW, fail!
