I love to lift weights to help strengthen myself, get myself physically fit, and increase my build. I workout every morning before school and do push ups every night to keep myself in shape. Lately I haven't because of a shoulder dislocation, but I will definitely get back when I'm cleared. Lifting will make me feel good about myself and feel happier. It can boost my self esteem and overall muscle, which will improve my overall feel and look of my body.
Netflix is just a place where I can relax and watch tons of movies. I love to watch superhero movies and TV shows, criminal investigation shows, and comedy movies and shows. These can be The Flash, Arrow, Criminal Minds, Law and Order SVU, The Office, and more. I also love to just chill with my family and watch movies while we eat and talk about our day.
I've had so many memories and experiences with fishing trips that it is almost a necessity I need in my life. My dad and I love to fish together as it gives us time to have fun, relax, spend time with each other, reconnect, or even just talk. Fishing is also fun as it is not just the memories you make with it, but the experience itself. Fishing is intense as you anxiously wait every second for that one bite to hit your line. Once it does, it's a fight and only one can win; you or the fish. It is so satisfying to pull in a fish and fishing will just make you proud and feel good about yourself.
Photography is just another way that I can fully show and express the raw emotion and energy around us. The world is a beautiful and incredible place. Many don't fully see it or anything past what they want to see and that is an absolute travesty to me. I want to show the beauty of a sunrise, the power of striking waves as they crash into the shore, or even just the bond between 2 friends together. Life is a powerful experience and no one should miss the opportunity to see it. It will be my job to make sure that they can experience the awesomeness of life.
I have 3 dogs and I love them all. I have a Great Dane (Hannah), Great Dane/Lab (Hercules), and an Australian Shepard (Cocoa). Hercules and Cocoa are the most active who will play, "go get the ball and hide it"; we don't play fetch. But all three will definitely love to just lay with my family in the living room and watch over us while we leave the couch for 5 minutes. Dogs can always be there for you as they are loyal, dependable, always happy to see you, and can just be a whole lot of fun. To this day, I've never had a day where my dogs disappoint in what they do and how they do it. Dogs can just make you smile and feel good about yourself.
Music; whether listening or playing it, has helped me through a lot of rough times in my life. Music allows me to express my emotions and energy in a way that I can freely flow what i'm thinking into the minds of others. When I listen to music, it helps calm me down, push me through things, and it even helps me sleep. I like almost every type of music there is (except country). I listen to music when I clean, workout, do homework, and honestly any task i'm assigned.
Video games are one of my favorite hobbies to do on my free-time. They help me relax, focus, and all in all are fun! I first started with a Gamecube given to me by my parents on my birthday when I was 9 years old. I played on that system all the time with my dad and we still play games together. I play with my friends from school and love every second of each games story, outline, characters, and just gameplay effects. They are fun to play, especially with friends, and I'll probably always play them!
I love to build projects and create new things off the top of my head. My grandpa and I get plans and build projects together and we do so many, that we've lost track of how many we've done. Whether it's building a chair for a deck or re-roofing a house, I love working with my hands and testing my creativity.
Sports have given me extreme heights in my life. I love to play almost every sport created! I have been on teams for football, basketball, baseball, tennis, and soccer. Sports let me express my competitive spirit and help me strive to be the best I can be. I love to show people what I can do, but aside from that, sports are just flat out fun!
I have been playing trumpet since 4th grade, and I've loved every minute of it. I play in the Parkview Band and I'm one of the section leaders for the trumpet section. The trumpet is very difficult to play if done improperly, so I like to play it to challenge myself every day. I plan to use my musical skill level with trumpet to take me on a scholarship to college. After college I want to play as a commercial player for a side job.
