The Wi-Fi Password
– RaquelIt all started with the Wi-Fi password.
I know, it sounds simple and unimportant, but nowadays your Wi-Fi
password is more valuable than almost any other thing you own. The
internet alone is addictive enough; add wireless technology, and you have a
permanent way to feed that addiction under the roof of your house. I know
people who would much rather stay inside than give up their Wi-Fi
To back up the importance of Wi-Fi, I want to share a story about my
neighbors: the Hidalgos. The only neighbors we don’t interact with. But I
need to go back even further to when my mother immigrated to the United
States from Mexico while she was pregnant with me. She’s struggled since
arriving in this small North Carolina town. Growing up, I witnessed her
victories and her defeats, her efforts and her perseverance. She’s an
amazing woman who commands everyone’s respect. And in fact, she hasn’t
had trouble socializing with our neighbors, but the Hidalgos are the one
exception. Why? Well, they’re wealthy and rather obnoxious.
The family consists of Sofia Hidalgo, her husband Juan, and their three
children: Artemis, Ares, and Apolo. Their parents clearly had an obsession
with Greek mythology. I can’t imagine how the poor kids are doing in
school. I can’t be the only one who has noticed their peculiar names. You
may be wondering: How do I know so much about them if we don’t even
talk to each other?
The reason has a first and last name: Ares Hidalgo.
I sigh, and imaginary hearts float around me.
Even though Ares doesn’t go to my school—he goes to a fancy private
school instead—I’ve spent a lot of time checking him out. Let’s just say
I’ve had an immense, years-long crush on him. It began the first time I saw
him playing with a soccer ball in his backyard when I was just eight years
old. I was shocked because he was the first member of his family that I saw
Naturally, my crush has diminished a bit over the years because I’ve
never actually talked to him. We haven’t even shared a simple glance. I
don’t think he’s ever noticed my presence, not even when I stare at him like
However, the little contact I’ve previously had with my neighbors is
about to change, as it turns out that Wi-Fi is not only capable of connecting
our devices, but it’s also able to bridge different worlds.
Imagine Dragons plays throughout my small room as I sing and take off my
shoes. I just got home from my summer job, and I’m exhausted.Since I’m
eighteen, I’m supposed to be full of energy, but my mother says she has a
lot more energy than I do, and she’s right.
I stretch out, yawning, and my
husky, Rocky, mimics me, stretching out his paws. People say dogs become
more like their owners, and it’s true that Rocky is my doggy incarnation. I
swear he sometimes even mimics my facial expressions.
My eyes land on the posters with positive messages hanging all around
my room. My dream is to be a psychologist and help people. I’m really
