After watching the movie Pitch Perfect, my friends and I were inspired to watch one of our parent's favorite childhood movies, The Breakfast Club, I came home from a friend's house and chatted with my parents. I laughed about how it paralleled so much with the clicks at my school. They laughed at me, and said, "Sophia, it is a timeless movie." As I sat and talked with them, I recognized that I had had an eventful and in a funny way a life-changing weekend. I went to Evergreen Nursing Home to decorate hospice patient's rooms and spoke to the Girl Scouts of Bakersfield about my club, Dreamcatchers at Liberty. It suddenly dawned on me as I was writing an AP Political Science paper, that we are all fighting the same battles and have our own issues that we make facades out of. As I watched The Breakfast Club, it triggered my reaction to my weekend- it was long, and required a lot of attention, but ultimately I learned more than I can ever express.
My Mom is my superhero and is featuring one of summer's favorite colors-red. She paired it nicely with color-blocked earth tone wedges and a jean jacket. It is a simple city outfit and a perfect way to end our Spring Lookbook- "The Industry."

The best part of walking out of your room in the morning is finding out that your Mom, Dad, and sister decided to wear the same color as you. My brother apparently did not get the memo that we were all wearing coral...we are not the Busacca family we are now known as the Coral family at Stockdale Country Club in my hometown. As we walked through the crowded doors of SCC we got stopped at least eight times asking if we had planned our outfits and to be completely honest- we did not. Mother's day is a beautiful time of the year, we celebrate the peace and love that we have all experienced from our Grandmas, Mothers, cousins, and aunts. Whether or not they are a biological mother, they are a person in our life who have impacted us from the moment we have stepped on this planet. Take time today to thank that special somebody who has done more for you than you will ever be able to return to them. I love you Momma, Grandma, Aunt Katy, Aunt Sara, Aunt Claire, Aunt Marie, Aunt Danielle, Aunt Michelle, Aunt Mary, Auntie Anne, and Grandma Busacca. You have all supported me and I love you all; thank you for being there for me when I need you.

Every time I hear the song, "The Sun is Rising," by Britt Nicole it reminds me how lucky I am to have failures and successes in my life. This year I ran for two positions on ASB and lost both times. It was not fun to lose twice; however, after realizing that my future that I had planned for was no longer there, a new door has opened. As I continue to get ready for my Senior Year in high school, I realized that I will still play a role in Associated Student Body and I will continue to live what my Grandma always tells me, "It is not the end result that ultimately defines you- it is how you handle it." This quote has continued to help me understand that life will lead us different ways than we expected or what we wanted, but it is our attitude and the other doors that will open that will define us in the end.
