I have been through many difficult situations, but recently the most difficult one I been in, is faliling the course of math 1 and having to recourse it all because I've failed, but in this course I have been learning more nd rehearsing much about all the themes that I didn't understand.

One day we forgot the keys inside the van, it took a long time for the copy of the key to arrive so I was late for my audition.

Yes, I had. When I was in the third semester of high school, I failed my first partial on Chemistry with a really bad grade. The grade that I obtained was under 55 but it was on my final average of the subject. I was freak out and I wanted to cry a lot. Finally, I could improve my notes and I recovered my Chemistry subject. Now, I'm very smart on that subject and I mostly obtained excellent grades.

Yes, once I leaved my training bag downstairs on the school's library and after my class when I went to get it, the bag wasn't there. I was looking for it at many places and I didn't found it. That afternoon I couldn't trained because I did't had the clothes to do it.

No, recently I had no problems, but 3 years ago I moved my house because of the high school and I represented a 180 degree turn and it was very complicated for me.

I had a lot of difficult situations in my life , one of those was moving from one city to another. Three years ago my father had another oportunity of job in Monterrey, but we were living on Chihuahua, i didn't wanted to leave Chihuahua because i did't wanted to leave my friends and my school. When i entered to my new school ("Saint Joseph") it was very difficult to me to make some friends because the school was really small, there were 19 students per group and there were only two groups per grade. My first two years in that school were very difficult because i never found a person with the same tastes as me, during recess i used to talk with some girls , but i was not comfortable. For me moving to another city was one of my difficult situations because i had to adapt to a new environment and new people

When I was in junior high, I wake up late, so I was running to school, but whe I was in the classroom, I remember that I forgot the homework at home, so I start to feel bad and my stomach hurts a lot, so the teacher tell me- was wrong with you, so I tell her and then the teacher punish me.

A difficult situation that I went through, it was a few months ago when I was still in high school, during the school season I became ill, I had a fever and I felt bad, I was in the exam period so I lost some, I had to present them until I return and I lost some class when they saw new subjects, I also hurt in my training of swimming since it is missing several days and I had to train stronger when I return.

Yes, when one friend died, and he was a really nice person and also we spend a lot of time together. For me it was difficult to accept it, but now i know he is in a better place, and each moment that we were together was really nice. I miss him.
