Current State: Unbalanced! G ood mental and social state But I’m out of shape since wrestling season ended A weakness in just one area of the Triangle, can, in turn, affect all of the others. For example, one might have  low self-esteem under their mental point and may see themselves as weak or ugly on their physical side and because of that, feel awkward socially because of their perceived notion of them being ugly.

Unique Self - Song:

What: Sampler songs from my band, “Exposure” Why it represents me: These songs represent all of the hard work and time I spent creating, playing, and producing music with my band. It is a reflection of what I can do if I truly set my mind to something. Link: Exposure Sampler Unique Self - Song

Unique Self – Song Lyrics:

“Bringing Me Down”: I don’t know what I’m doing anymore/Can’t see my face in the mirror, that’s for sure/ That girl looking back at me isn’t who I wanna be/ That voice in my head won’t let me be, won’t let me be me/ In this world where no one knows who they really are/ On my own, and I don’t know what I’m fighting for/ God, I know I can be better than I am right now/ So I’ll let go of all the things that are bringing me down. “What If I Try”: What if I try? What if I try a little harder will you change? So what If I try a little harder will you change? I guess I’ve tried, yeah I know I’ve tried. But you won’t change. Unique Self – Song Lyrics

Future Aspirations – Person of Impact:

One Person My Sister What makes this person important: Always pushed me in different areas of my life Helped shape me into who I am today Future Aspirations – Person of Impact

Future Aspirations – Letter:

Dear Meg Heck, Seriously, As a sibling and a sister you have always been there for me. I know we have always had our differences, with a lot of them ending quite badly, but overall I think we've had a pretty stable and positive relationship (I think). All joking aside, I know that deep down inside you always had my best interests at heart, even though you always decided on the most snarky ways to give me advice. But in the end you helped shaped me into I am. I never would have had my ninja- like reflexes if you never tried to beat me up all the time, I never would have had my amazing wit if you hadn't introduced  me to funny things and good books. I never would have gotten into good music if you had never given me your music, well, except for your strange obsession with hardcore rap. I never would have even had the courage to talk to girls if you didn't make fun of me about it all the time. Overall, though I know you adopted a tough love sort of affection towards me, I just wanted to let you know that I still look up to you and love you too . Sincerely , Alex Heck Future Aspirations – Letter

Future Aspirations – Future Plans:

In 3 years I see myself working in UC Irvine, living at the dorms, and (hopefully) not having a family yet. In 5 years I see myself Graduated from college with a degree in Engineering, living at wherever I have a job, and maybe having a serious girlfriend. In ten years I see myself well off with my job in Engineering, living somewhere that's decent, and hopefully having a wife by then. Future Aspirations – Future Plans

Future Aspirations – One Thing:

If I could accomplish one thing in my life, it would be to find a viable alternative to fossil fuels. Future Aspirations – One Thing

Media Awareness:

The media has generally become a negative influence in our society. In our nation, consumerism rules, and makes us want to buy more. T he media helps facilitate this by putting out stigmas that put ideas into our heads that we want to look a certain way or buy certain things. For example, I wear jeans with polos and beanies because its perceived to be a type of underground fashion in our society, and I like thinking that I’m being a non-conformist when I know deep down that there are still plenty of others doing the exact same thing. Another example is the fact that I want an iPhone even though Droids have been proven to be far superior than iPhones. I still want one for the smoothness and recognition that it comes with.
