Yes, I remember very well one time when I was in the gym and brought my cell phone with me, and I was working in a machine when suddenly my headphones got entangled in the machine and my cell phone fell to the floor breaking. To this day I keep saving for a good cell phone because the one I have at the moment is not as good as it was the other one.

When I was 15 years old I was playing beach volleyball with Nuevo Leon team, I was so excited to play the nacional olympiad, my coach chose me to go to play to acapulco but there was a problem with the management system and I could not go, so another girl took my place and I cried a lot because I was very excited and had given a lot of effort in all the trainings to be chosen.

When I was 14 years old, I had to get a high punctuation at the admission exam at TEC, I had a lot of homework and I didn´t had time to study. There was so mucho work to do that I didn´t know what to do, the date of the exam had arrived and I had just studied about 1 hour, luckily I got a high grade and I was accepted at the school, after that I had to do so much homework, and I almost failed. All the effort was worthy.

Well, I had a dog last year. It was friendly and beautiful dog. One day when I was watching TV I hear a noise and I ran out to look what happened and I saw to my dog on the street, she was hit by a car and she died. I wouldn’t believe, but it was true. Then I cryed for many days and I remembered the good moments when she played whit me. It’s one of bad situations on my live.
