Kristina Essay

480 words - 2 pages

Standing at one hundred and fifty one centimeters and weighing slightly under a hundred pounds is my inspiration and pure motivation. Her natural black hair cut sideways at the front as fringes, is enough to cover her spacious forehead and tuck her right eye away when she converses with her habitual but subtle head gestures. The bruises on her knees and lower back show signs of dedication to her new found love, break dancing.

With carefully maintained creased eyebrows of sympathy, she would reach out for a long, warm embrace and with her angelic face, one would forget life's troubles and momentarily sail through a happy realm of brightly colored rainbows and white, fluffy clouds. When a sulky frown is placed upon my face, she would distort her face, stretch and tug at her limbs just to generously share her child-at-heart attitude.Inspired by the Harajuku Girls, a group of four famous trendy Japanese girls, my source of comfort comes with a wardrobe of creativity. Anyone who looked in her closet would be dazzled with the brilliant colors and innovatively matched outfits. Her purple retro heels would randomly match her pink and white twill blazer, and her comfortable light blue jeans that sits right above her child-bearing hips rolled up to make room for her flamboyantly striped leg warmers. Her adorable style represents her spontaneous personality and has inspired me to keep being my own person under any circumstances.Even with her outstanding radiant personality, as a human being, she also has her flaws. Unfortunately she is not quite gifted in the academic area and this sometimes frustrates her. Nonetheless, one will never meet a person who has such a strong positive outlook that it overlooks her times of difficulty and the lemons life throws at her. She is a hundred pounds of pure, good soul, and a genuine sister that can never be replaced.
