this is miranda.
miranda is my neice. i could not be more proud to call her my own flesh and blood. i remember when she was born, the heavens opened up and angels sang, it was that amazing. miranda belongs to my oldest brother bryce and his wife lisa. she is the oldest grandchild on both sides and has the oldest soul i have ever met. really, when she was 1 she was brilliant, when she was 2 she was eloquent, and by the time she was 3 she understood life and cared about everything. not only is she beautiful, she is smart and charismatic too. miranda was born cool. she is the best oldest cousin to have too, she loves all of her little cousins (my kids included). i wish i was around miranda more, i wish i could continue to see grow and learn, i wish i could see the world through her sparkling eyes. i am glad however, that i get to know her. be glad you met miry today!
I'm Miranda. I'm 14 and I live in Santa Rosa,California with my two parents, Bryce and Lisa, and my little brother Asher. I have lived in California for 5 years now, and it's my favorite place on earth. My life is acting, I've dreamed of being on Broadway since I was 8. I just got accepted into a program called ArtQuest, which is a special program dedicated to the arts. I obviously got accepted into the performing arts area but there are many more areas one could be in. It looks wonderful on your resume and it's kind of amazing! I'm going to be a freshman in 3 weeks, attending Santa Rosa High School. I love to read, and write. I try to do my best in everything that comes my way, and I enjoy every moment in life. I'm slightly bossy (just ask my brother) but I love kids, so any babysitting is a treat. I hope to one day go to UCSF and perform in the Orpheum. Kennan is my aunty, and my dad is her brother. I love all of my aunts and uncles, and I adore my many cousins.
where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Well, frankly I see myself almost graduating college at UCSF, living in an apartment, going to play practice and visiting my parents and brother here in Santa Rosa. I see myself happy and content, and in the midst of learning who I am and what this world is all about.
what is one thing you wish everyone knew about you?
My hair is high-lighted blonde, so the inconsiderate youth of my age seems to think that just because I'm blonde i'm stupid as well. Well I'm not, I happen to be taking honors English next year for high school!
But seriously, I wish that there were no stupid stereo types that placed me into certain category. I'm blonde and smart, but there's not a category for that. So, I wish that people could know from the get-go that I'm not some dumb blonde.
if you had to come back as someone else, who would you be?
Well, I would be a couple people. Mostly I would want to be a Gypsy. I have wanted to be a Gypsy forever, seriously. Gypsies are tan, gorgeous and they can dance. My name would be Consuelo and I would live in Eastern Europe.
If I couldn't be a Gypsy I would be British. Most of my ancestors are British and I feel like I'm supposed to be there, in Europe. But, I would want to live in the 1800's so, I guess that wouldn't really work now would it?
what inspires you?
I had to answer this for my ArtQuest application. One thing (well person, really) that inspires me is my mom. She is the most amazing woman on the planet. I'm fairly sure that if I didn't have her to talk to my world would fall apart. She inspires me to be who I want to be, and make my own decisions. She inspires me to go out and try new things, to face the wide world with confidence.
Another thing that inspires me is reading. I read to much. But when I read, it gives me hope that somewhere out there, someone knew what they were talking about! With books, they don't have opinions or disagreements, they state plainly what they mean on the page of the book, and fill your world with sheer joy with the vivid pictures they paint in your mind
Mostly though, my family inspires me. I love them and look to them for help
what is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?
Oh man... this is a good one. Well, in fourth grade I happened to be the most popular girl in school ;) and all of the boys had a crush on me. I had just bought a brand new long skirt, that was purple and had lace on it. It was sort of loose and stretchy, but I had to impress Michael Baker (one of my many boyfriends) so I wore it to school. There was a game called chicken where you had to swing off of a bar, while holding on to these silver rings, and touch feet with the person on the other side.
I went to swing out my feet (keep in mind this is on the playground, and Michael Baker is RIGHT in front of me, playing with his friends) and my shoe got stuck in my skirt, pulling it completely down revealing my polka-dot underpants. Everyone began laughing, and Michael Baker looked at me and said "What's with the Polka-Dots?". So I swore I would never wear that skirt again and ran into the bathroom with my friends, my face bright as a cherry.
I tell my friends about that now and they burst out laughing, because knowing me, that's totally something they could see happening.
miry jane... thanks for playing. you truly are one of a kind and i CANNOT wait to see you accomplish your dreams.
miranda is too young for a blog but add her as a friend on facebook and you won't be disappointed.
