Carys Dougherty

My name

"If its a girl does her name have to begin with the letter C?"

"Of course you do!" was the response my mom always got from anyone she asked. They thought i would feel left out or sad if I didn't have a C name. My mom wanted something different than any other regular name like "Christina" or "Carly." My mom had a friend that worked at Penn and she printed out a list of names of girls that went there. As soon as she saw the name Carys, she fell in love.

I do agree with the fact that my name is different, and it has its advantages of being different like, a lot of people like it and they think its "pretty." But when you have advantages, you will always have your disadvantages too such as, People always pronouncing it wrong, people not knowing how to spell it, and the worst one of them all, never and I mean never, seeing your name on keychains or stickers or almost anything for that matter. The only way I could get something with my name on it is if I order it, or if I go to Wales, which I don't think will be happening anytime soon.

Carys means love, which I find it believable because I think of myself to be a lovable person. When I asked my friends what they think means they said stuff like kind, pleasant, and pure, and I think all of those relate to love.

I am proud to say that my name is Carys, because it is a name like no other. It is very unique and pretty. Even though people sometimes don't know how to spell it or pronounce it wrong, i like the fact that I have a better chance of finding a four leaf clover than I do of finding my name on a key-chain.

Storage trunk

In my old dark basement, there was a old wooden box buried underneath a

pile of useless junk.I blew the layer of dust of the top of the old box. In this box was

basically memories from my parents, and grandparents childhood. The first item/

memory that i found was an old silver cross. My grandmother got it when she was

growing up in Ireland. She found it in a little jewelry shop and she saved up all of her

money until she could buy it. This cross brought her so much joy, even though in the

time she was growing up in didnt have much of it. The second item/memory I found was

two little glass statuettes, one dog and one cat. The statuettes use to belong to my

mommom, She got them from one of nuns at her school. I was suprised when I heard

that because I would think nuns would be mean and scary back then. Both of these

items were saved because they gave my grandparents happiness when things around

them werent so happy. These items reveal that if you can find something that makes

you happy and hold on to that then you can get through all the bad things going on. I

hope to pass these items down to my kids and to their kids.I plan on keeping both of

these memories for a very long time.

Music in my life

What is the role of music in your life? I think music has the role of my emotion.

What genres of music do you listen? Do you listen to specific genres for specific purposes or at specific times? I have a big range when it comes to music. I listen to slow sad music, Pop music, and Pop-rock. I think the music I listen to at a given time definitely depends on the way I am feeling emotionally. For example if I am feeling sad then I will listen to slow and sad songs.

Make a list of bands/singers/groups that you love. One Direction, Sam Smith, 5 Seconds of Summer, Lana Del Rey, The Darling Buds, Coldplay, Birdy, M83, Bon Iver, Ed Sheeran, Andrew Belle.

Make a list of songs that you love. 18 - One Direction, Kiss me - Ed Sheeran, Medicine - Daughter, I Miss You - Blink 182

Do you have any songs that have stories connected to them? For example, the song “Yellow” by Coldplay is special to me because it was playing on the radio when I was driving in the car on the way to the hospital when my daughter was born. Yellow turned out to be her favorite color. The song "I Miss You" by Blink 182 because it was my brother, Curran, favorite song and when he left for spain for 5 months I heard it so many times, and when we went to go pick him up from the airport that song came on the radio.

Choose one piece of music as your personal theme song. Copy the lyrics (if there are lyrics) give the title, and the artist. "You may say I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one, I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one." John Lennon - Imagine

Explain why you like the song. I like this song because the lyrics are describing how the world should be instead of the way it really is, Its saying to imagine the world like it is perfect even though it is the complete opposite.

Explain how the song represents you. Which character traits or personal qualities does it reflect? How? I can relate to this song because I personally wish that the world wasnt seen as such an awful place, I really do wish there was world peace.

Which lyrics are most meaningful? Why? I think the lyrics "Imagine all the people, Living life in peace" are most meaningful to me because we dont live in a world where we have world peace and it makes you literally imagine a world with peace which is amazing.

My friends right now are Lindsey, Charlotte, Audrey, abby, Skylar, Emerson, Katie, Courtney, Taylor and Kat.

They are my friends because they are always there for me. They help me through everything. We always have the best times together. We go to the beach together, and the movies. We always have sleepovers and eat so much.
