Legacy of a Jerk…
II was walking around in my room tossing up my tennis ball and catching it while listening to a Freakanomics podcast called Legacy of a Jerk when a heard something that changed my prospective of my dad. To those of you closly related to him you might, no you know for sure that Jeffrey Todd Fredrick is a very smart man, and he enjoys showing his kids that by giving then lectures, his most resent favorite to give to me was, “FInd your intrest that is why we home school…” I had no idea why that was until… I was listening to the show and I hear steve Jobs saying, ” I was lucky enough to find my pashion at age 10…” My first thought… ” How did you find your pashion at 10!” Then I thought ” Oh darn.. I am nearly 12 don’t have a pashion for much of anything.” Next came, ” Oh My God dad wants me to be the next “Steve Jobs” Crud…” Then, ” My dad whats me to be the next Steve Jobs! Cool… Oh no my DAD WANTS ME TO BE THE NEXT STEVE JOBS! ” Once I calmed down I thought… ” No my dad JUST wants me to have a pashion.” My calm self was losing, ” Oh God I do not want to have my dad to have such high expectations!” Now you may be wondering why I don’t just ask him, the answer is simple he WILL deny it. Also please do watch the Legacy of a Jerk by clicking here or on any of the blue words in this post, it will come up in a different tab.
Bye aand I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts as I tried to connect to dots

Right now it is summer, so don’t worry too much about that. Enjoy your free time and then, when school starts, write essays about passion and then maybe you will find it, at the tip of your pencil;)
In Sunnyvale, school starts August 22nd. That date could be the starting point of your search.
As always, I really appreciate your writing.
Emeline, I think you have found your passion, you just don’t know it. Your writing is far beyond a 12 year old and has been for a long time. It is where you direct that passion that is important – it will come when you least expect it.
Love you sweetheart and I love everything you write! I am in “AWE” of your
