When Mousie and me joined our gang, all the names were taken except Mousie and Sad Girl. Everyone said Maribel should be Mousie cuz she was so little. Sleepy said "No stupid because then we're gonna have to name Mona Sad Girl and she's not sad at all." Rascal said "Stupid , it don't matter." Sleepy was mad and kept saying "She's too happy to be Sad Girl."

About these two girls who were best friends since child hood years.
My name is Jacquelin. I'm 17 years old, and currently attending Arts of living. Which's an alternative school for pregnant women and new moms. I have a 5 month old baby boy name Tali. I'm ambitious, determined and out going.
The movie Mi Vida Loca is about a girl-gang in Echo Park, and basically it shows you the reality of gangs now a days. It shows you what these young teens face. From being a teen mom, a drug dealer etc..
I really enjoyed this movie a lot. I can actually relate to this movie because I'm a teen mom. I use to hang with gang- bangers, but having a baby can really change someone. I recommend this movie to every teen that's in a gang or hangs out with gang-bangers. So they can see how dumb they look for one, and for two so they can realize what they're risking. This movie has a great lesson behind it. Which's be careful what you do because What goes around comes around.
