Now that the big day is finally here, July 5th 2014. After everything that has happened, everything turned out great! Throughout the practices, and planning. It was all worth it, but what can I say? I didn’t make any sacrifices. My mom and dad were the ones, I had to go through a lot to just get the date down.
I’ve been dreaming about this day, for as long as I can remember. My dad wanted me to get a car instead. We would coastally get in arguments because of that. Like one time he told me something that got me so annoyed, that my replay changed everything. “There’s no point of having a quince, if its only one day!” he said. “You’re a guy, you don’t get it. You don’t get how it feels to have a whole day just about you. You get a huge dress and you get things ready for that one special day.” I said. But he didn’t care.
I didn’t have to beg him a lot. Because he knew no money, or car was going to change my mind. So then he finally agreed to make me my quince. It was June 10th 2013, when he said “Yes”. So right then we started planning everything. To the reception are, to my dress. To what we were going to have, for music. Who was going to do the photography. He started to pay so much money. I can’t give him ALL the credit, my mom started to pay a lot as well.
Getting closer to the day, my dad didn’t want to make me my quince anymore. I started to get a lot of bad habits. Not horrible habits, but they were pretty bad. I wouldn’t go to class, I wouldn’t care about my grades. I just didn’t care about anything. So then the school called my dad, and he got so angry. He said what’s the point of me havi8ng a quince, if I’m not going to be trying in school.
I started to think about it, and it was true. How can my parents be making such a huge sacrifice, and me just not focusing on school. So I decided to change my actions. I became a better student and epically daughter. I showed my dad my grades a week later, and he said he was proud of me. Making up my grades so quickly, can be really hard but it’s worth it.
After one crazy year, it all sums up to this. This day that I’m never going to forget. But if it wasn’t for my parents, this dream wouldn’t have been reality. My parents and I have been through thick and thin. I’m not trying to put my mom to the side, in any way. But my dad and I just have a stronger relationship. When it comes to him becoming a parent. My dad has always been there for me. Even though there’s points when I tell him things that I end up regretting. Or even though he can be really strict and very over protective. He still means a lot to me because, that’s just the way most dads are. I just want to thank my dad, for ALWAYS being here for me.
