Hola, compadres! Como esta?
It's your amigo, Miguel (Mike for short), or, as most people call me, "Milk", 'count of I'm so pale. Thought I'd let y'all know what's goin' down in my world.
Still doin' my thing: hangin' out with mi amigos, playing b-ball (as in base and basket ball!), listenin' to my tunes, writing songs/singing/playing my guitar, watching "South Park", "Family Guy", and "The Simpsons" on the boob-tube (I also like "Modern Family"), surfin' the 'Net (spend a lot of time at YouTube or at Facebook; have accounts at both places), and just generally act like a pain-in-the-ass. LOL I'm a typical teenager.
I wish most people would see that. Just because I'm nearly blind as a bat or can't spend a lot of time in direct sunlight doesn't mean that I'm helpless. I can do anything everyone else can do; I just can't spend too much time in the sun or not go outside without my black glasses, which filters a lot of the harmful UV rays from my eyes; to do so would only be asking for trouble.
Other than my paleness and my crappy vision, I'm a lot like you, more than you may think. And I am not white; I'm as Mexican as Cesar Chavez or Oscar De La Hoya! I'm as Mexican as salsa or chipotle! I speak Spanish as well as English; I can switch to either language on a dime!
Don't make assumptions about me unless you know me. I don't like being called white when I am anything but, although I do look it, thanks in part to my being born an albino. I don't know what caused me to end up like this; I'm the only one in my family that ended up without color. It's crazy how people act when they first see me; personally, I wish they'd get a life and leave me the hell alone!!
School sucks. Not doing too good in several of my classes: History, Applied Science, and Trig giving me the most headaches. Mami says if I don't bring up my grades in these classes then she's taking away my computer privileges until I bring my grades to a C + or a B level. I'm like, "Ohhh, man!!" Take away my tv, or take away my phone, but please, please don't take away my computer time!! That'd be the worst!!
I got into trouble last week at school, speaking of. Punched a kid after he called me a nasty racial slur; he'd been doggin' me since school started; finally had enough, so I beat the shit outta him. Put him into the hospital overnight when I rang his bell. He's gonna be okay, but now I'm in juvie detention for a month until I can straighten up my act (teacher's words, not mine). Maybe it was wrong to go Oscar De La Hoya on the kid, but I shouldn't have to take his verbal shit and try to ignore it!! That's insane!!
I was supopsed to go to church this weekend and watch Rosita (six) take her First Communion, but papi and mami both say that because of my recent trouble at school, it wouldn't be wise. After all, I haven't confessed to the priest about what I've done; they think I should have a pure heart, free of any and all trangressions, before I even set foot in church. So I guess no Mass for me either. *Sigh*
Might as well throw me into a dungeon and give me putrid water or stale bread to drink and eat! It was the other kid's fault for making me go into boxer-mode on him; he had it comin' to him! If you ask me, mi family es muy stupido!!!!
Well, it's time to go to my next class, so I'd better vamanos outta here. I will write again soon; hopefully my next entry will be a lot happier; right now, my life sucks the big one! Take care and talk to you hoons later! Adios!
