My name is Abby Nieskes, and I am in the senior class of 2014 at Hartford Union High School. Besides being an outstanding person in general, I am an avid soccer player, dedicated runner, and maker of delicious, freaky fast subs at Jimmy John's. My other school activities include being a flutist in our school band, performer of muscial theater, and member of NHS. I enjoy cooking French cuisine with my pal Morgan, and in my spare time I also binge-watch shows like Parks and Recreation, the Office, and Portlandia on Netflix. For fun I drink apple juice and go to various band concerts, or go to Costco and wander around eating the free samples. I also thoroughly enjoy clever puns and Laffy Taffy humor, because they are simply just the best. My future career plans involve me being an engineer, because I have an aptitude for math and physics classes. I plan on attending Michigan Technological University, and majoring in General Engineering there, although my first choice school was originally Hogwarts School of WItchcraft and Wizardry.
Not marble, nor the gilded monuments by William Shakespeare
Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone, besmear'd with sluttish time.
When wasteful war shall statues overturn,
And broils root out the work of masonry,
Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory.
'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity
That wear this world out to the ending doom.
So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lovers' eyes.
