One of the many ways to like a person is based off their style and in the picture above you can clearly see who Taylor is. She keeps life surprising and I think a lot more people need a friend like her.

Walk me through a day in your life

“I wake up at like 6 and sleep in until my mom yells at me to get up. I rush everything like my makeup and hair. I usually yell at my brothers for annoying me. Then I walk to school and it’s freezing. I get to school and have great classes where I make fun of everyone. On Tuesdays and Thursday, I have debate team and I still haven’t figured out my nickname. The week we came back from break, I started softball. I cook dinner for myself after school sometimes. I make tomato soup and grill cheese. And for reference, it’s homemade. I complain to my mom about school, probably take a nap. Shower and go to bed, that’s my whole day.”

What are your interests?

“I do so much stuff. I do softball and debate. I’m a catcher. I’m the person that stands behind you when you’re at bat, and I catch the ball. I never want to play a different position because it’s one of the best. Most people either want to be a catcher or they want to be a pitcher, but they just can’t do it. There are certain skills that you must have. In my own personal opinion, I think I’m the greatest.”

How do you think people perceive you?

“Not good, most people don’t like me that much. It’s probably because I don’t like them either. I don’t take attitude from anyone and if you give me one, you’ll get one back. So, I say some not nice things sometimes.”

How do you perceive yourself?

“I think I’m the best. I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread. I think everyone should see me that way. I am the Sharpay of this school.”

What’s your favorite hobby?

“Debate because it’s fun and all my friends are there.”
