Raymond's Run

How it changed me

Hazel and I are total opposites but we are similar too. I used to run when I was younger. I was the fastest thing around. THis is how we are diffrent. Hazel is always herself. She tells it as it is. She never lets anything get to her. She stands up for herself. I have a hard time standing up for myself sometimes. I always want to try to please everyone and not hurt anyones feelings. I have gotton better at being able to that. I think I could improve though. HAzel and I are total opposites but we are similar too.
