Meghan Kossen's Legacy
Imaginative- I believe that I am imaginative because I enjoy drawing, dancing, and writing stories. When I draw I imagine the image so that I proceed to put it on the paper. Also when I dance I am able to picture the moves and put them to music in my head. Lastly I am always making copious amounts of stories and scenarios in my mind. Imagination brings colour into my perception.
Determined- I approach tasks with tenacity, even when they're difficult. In dance I have come a long way. When I was a wee little chicken nugget I told myself that when I grew up I would dance competitively, have a solo, and be on the elite team and now I'm doing all three. Also I'm determined to become a psychiatrist and have been since fourth grade. In 10 years I hope to be proud to call myself Dr. Kossen.
Trustworthy- I think I am trustworthy because people trust me with their secrets most of the time. They expect me to keep them, and I do. Surprisingly my mom trusts me to be home alone and use an oven. I think I'm doing a good job because I haven't burned down the house yet. When I make friends I look for somebody who's trustworthy, so that's how I hope people perceive me.
Independent- When I get projects or homework I always do it on my own; without help. Not only am I an independent worker, but an independent thinker as well. I don't like being told what to do and I won't do just anything simply because someone tells me to. I like being independent because it's easier to do things on your own rather than constantly requiring assistance.
I picked this video because I thought it was sweet. When I'm older I want my legacy to be that I helped someone or changed at least one persons life.
I chose eight photo's of things that I love and what make up my life.
Our generation will be known for nothing
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Was how we handled our problems.
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn't come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around

"Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
"You're growing up, and the rain sort of remains on the branches of a tree, that will someday rule the earth. And it's good that there's rain. It clears the month of your sorry rainbow expressions, and it clears the streets of silent armies, so we can dance."
-Jim Carrol, The Basketball Diaries
