Yes, I remember very well one time when I was in the gym and brought my cell phone with me, and I was working in a machine when suddenly my headphones got entangled in the machine and my cell phone fell to the floor breaking. To this day I keep saving for a good cell phone because the one I have at the moment is not as good as it was the other one.

When I was 15 years old I was playing beach volleyball with Nuevo Leon team, I was so excited to play the nacional olympiad, my coach chose me to go to play to acapulco but there was a problem with the management system and I could not go, so another girl took my place and I cried a lot because I was very excited and had given a lot of effort in all the trainings to be chosen.

When I was 14 years old, I had to get a high punctuation at the admission exam at TEC, I had a lot of homework and I didn´t had time to study. There was so mucho work to do that I didn´t know what to do, the date of the exam had arrived and I had just studied about 1 hour, luckily I got a high grade and I was accepted at the school, after that I had to do so much homework, and I almost failed. All the effort was worthy.

Well, I had a dog last year. It was friendly and beautiful dog. One day when I was watching TV I hear a noise and I ran out to look what happened and I saw to my dog on the street, she was hit by a car and she died. I wouldn’t believe, but it was true. Then I cryed for many days and I remembered the good moments when she played whit me. It’s one of bad situations on my live.

My opinion about the video this time I think it is okay to apologize because they stole a foreign cell or the death of the pet. But the guy who apologizes for failing the subject should feel very ashamed, should not do it again.

Yes. One Day my dog, Pongo, was with my family and me in the park, and in one moment he took off his leash and run away to the street and cross it when a car was passing. The sir of the car stopped and his son hit the front window for not having the belt. It was a big problem because the sir said us that we need to pay the broken windshield, and he didn't worried at all in his son. My family only want to know how the kid was, they didn't had the problem of paying what the sir wanted.

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.

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
