Likes/Dislikes or Hobbies
There are many things I like to do in this big World of ours. There are also many things I do not like to do or don’t care for doing. However, the main thing I enjoy doing most is playing basketball. In my spare time I go outside my house and shoot around or I go to the Eastover Recreation Center and play basketball in their gym. Also, I play basketball for Eastover Parks and Recreation during the winter months. I enjoy playing basketball so much because it gives me a way to relieve a lot of my stress and anger.

Something unique about me is that I actually enjoy life itself. Life to me means friends and family who you can trust and who trusts you. I am pretty much on the happy side of life, but like all teens I do I have my "days of." That means I do have some sad days or depressed days. I have a few friends I chill with that sort of look out for me and when I am having a bad day, I also have someone here at school to talk to. I make my school days go by thinking of either the next hour or what I will do when I get home or what I will do when the weekend comes around the corner. I mean if you think about it, you wouldn’t be a happy person if you didn’t live your life like you wanted to.

I've set aside time each day to listen to music for the last five years. I listen to music so often that when I'm not listening to it, I find rhythms in footsteps and doors closing and the sound of traffic. Honestly, music to me is home, a constant. When I play a favorite song, the chaos of the day is made clear. Music helps me regress every song an old memory that puts me back a few years, a decade, or last week. Memories are safe places because they can't be altered or erased, and music takes me back. I love the way music can help me zone out and refocus. The way it can put me out of touch with my own body, to the point of grace (I can dance like a fool and feel utterly free to look however silly it is I look). I love the way music connects me...
