Intro Music: Catchy and Inspirational
Taylor Tipton: My goal in life is to live it to the fullest. My mother has taught me that. She had a heart attack on her 50th birthday and that was probably the turning point in my life. I realized at that moment that I could die or someone I care about could die at any moment. And I will not waste my life or time with people I care about.
Transition Music: calming inspirational music
Taylor Tipton: My mom’s heart attack happened when I was a senior in high school. This changed my whole outlook on high school. High school is known to be cruel to many people. In my high school, everyone talked bad about everyone else. This taught me to be nicer and more accepting of people. Now, if I see someone doing something odd or crazy, I just say to myself, “you do you.” What I mean by this is, that everyone is different and it is their own life, so they can do whatever they want.
My mom’s heart attack also helped me stayed connected to my family while I have been in college. Many people don’t stay in great contact while in college, but I do. I call my mom every day. I have to stay in contact, because if anything happens to her or my family, I would feel bad. My family and I are really close, because of what happened in high school.
Transition Music: calm music
Taylor Tipton: My goal is to live life to the fullest! I couldn’t see myself living any other way. I have a bucket list of things I want to do before I die. Most are like swim with sharks or skydive, but some can just be everyday things. Like I do not want to hate anyone. I do not want to have bad feelings about the world. I do not want to leave this world without doing something I really want to do or having any regrets. I want to believe I lived life the best I could.
Ending Music: longer ending
