My family and I are very close. My family includes my brother, my dad, my mom (not pictured), and me! My brother is just sixteen months younger than me ,so we have never been the siblings to hate each other or fight. My dad is a comedy writer, who is usually home a lot, which makes my relationship with him even stronger. My mom has been home all my life. We are very close and summers are always fun with her in charge. My family means a lot to mean ,so I couldn't do a project about me without them.
Buddy, or Budders, is our dog. He is a terrier mix and he is the best dog to ever live. That is NOT an overstatement. We go him one day when driving home from the Griffith Park Observatory. We decided to stop at a dog adoption booth in a Gelson's parking lot. It was for a company call Best Friends Animal Society. My mom and I walked in the truck the had with the cats. When we came out, my dad and brother were crying, staring at Budders. We've cared for him and loved him ever since.
San Francisco is my home away from home. My grandpa, who my family I are very close with, lives in this great city and has his whole life. My dad grew up there and as a kid he was free to roam around the city. He grew up being a huge Giants fan, therefore we are too. Go Giants! San Francisco is a city that is insanely different from my home town of Los Angeles, so it is an escape. We try to go at least twice a year, and ,trust me, it is not an issue getting everyone pumped for our trip.
Every summer my family and friends from school go to Topanga beach a lot. And by a lot I mean, A LOT. It is the best beach ever and I will always remember ducking waves and enjoying the ocean breeze. When ever I am at another beach, I am always am underwhelmed and I always think about the great memories I have at my home, Topanga beach.
Perfect is the only word I have to describe my favorite dessert chocolate chip cookies. They're warm, chewy, and they make you think of home. I love chocolate, and this is the perfect combo of cookie and melty chocolate. It was one of the first things I've ever learned to make. I love cookies so much that, in fifth grade, I did a science experiment on them. Cookies in general hold a special place in my heart.
I love to cook and bake! It is one of my favorite things to do and I have taken several classes. It is another passion I have that I will have forever. There is just something about the controlled chaos that is cooking that is incredibly soothing. Food Network is where I get a good amount of my recipes.
