1 My brother taught me how to fight. I was the neighborhood bully.
2 The hardest point in my life right now is trying to figure out what I'm gonna wear.
3 I was doing poorly in a US history class . . . partly, I think, because Hawaii is so isolated from the rest of the country. So my mother took me to Philadelphia and Boston to see the Liberty Bell and other famous sites. I ended up getting an A in the course.
4 I've managed to keep my clothes on for everything I've done so far.
