People I have been influenced by Many people have influenced me through out my life.

I have chosen only one person to talk about today. This person is my girlfriend she has influenced me in many different ways. In this paper I will explain some of the ways she has had an influence on my life.

This whole thing started about one and a half years ago I was in the 12th grade.I met a girl named Brandi Morton we started talking to each other and then we went on a few dates. And you know as well as I do what happens after a few dates. You go on more dates and then you consider yourself boyfriend and girlfriend or dating. One of the things that I noticed about this girl is that it was in December and she was wearing flip flops. So after we had been dating for a while summer was here and I really did not wear sandles but she insisted on me buying a pair of flip flops. So I tried them out and now here it is in January and I am still wearing them right along with her. So I dont think she is crazy anymore for wearing sandles in the winter time.

Up untill just recently I had a bad habit that a lot of people share unwantedly. I had a smoking problem it was not bothering me very much. But Brandi did not like it at all she kept telling me not to do it, but you know I still did. I just decided I would not smoke around her so I tried not to be around her when I had been smoking.

But that did not work she would surprise me and come visit me then she would get upset because I had been smoking. So finanlly I decided to quit smoking completely and now when I see her I dont have to worrry about her smelling smoke on me or tasting it on my breath.

Here is a little something that she influenced me to do. For a while I had been thinking about getting my tongue pierced.Well I talked to her about it and we agreed that it would be a good thing that we both would enjoy. So the day before Halloween I went to a place called Tattoo Charlies and got it done. I was surprised because I thought and figured that it would hurt and I would cry and be made fun of. But the guy that did it was like a pro or something it did not take him any time and it did not hurt at all.

These are just a few of the ways that I have been influenced by my girlfriend or by anybody. If you think about it you are influcended by somebody every day somehow. It could be by your mom telling you to get up and go to school in the morning. It could be your best friend trying to get you to drink a cold beer at a party, or just anything like that.
