My dad has helped me make decisions that ive needed help withhe supports my desion and ultimate goal of joining the United States CoastGuard . My father has taught me wright from wrong and I thank him for that.He is my dad ,mentor, and friend and I love him thank you dad.
Entertainment I truly like to be entertained either by my hobbies friends or family . Iusually am pretty entertained by just playing Xbox ,but I play Airsoft which I lookforward to going to every two week’s. though if it’s a snow storm I can easily beentertained by watching the plow trucks spin out on my road . I rarely watch t.v. andso I do some pretty crazy and ambitious stuff with my friends which is prettyentertaining. I like to read book’s sometimes which is a form of entertainment whichhelps me in school
Fishing I am a fishermen it brings me joy just to walk out to the water castmy line out and start fishing . I spend my summers fishing off my kayak . Ivecaught a lot of fishing in my time. My greatest night fishing I caught 7 largekeeper’s . Fishing is fun and I generally fish with my dad. Fishing is my life inthe summer and it’s just what I do.
Gaming Gaming has been a pass time for me for along time . Gaming actually is away of relaxing for me if I come home from a hard day at school I will turn on my Xboxand game .I have quite the collection of game’s ranging from Battlefield 3 to Forzahorizon and on occasion NHL 7.I have spent probly more time gaming than watching tv. Sometimes if I play for to long my mom will come into my room and tell me to turnmy Xbox off.
Hobbies In my down time I have a lot of hobbies that I like to do I game , go toscouts, kayaking, biking , and my favorite airsoft. Airsoft is a sport that involves beingvery physical and enduring pain wile operating under stressful situations. Air soft isextremely dangerous and I love the thrill of adrenalin that I get when I play. Airsoft hasmade me more aware of what is going on around me. In airsoft bb’s are flying pastyou at around 400 miles per hour and you don’t want to get hit. I have made therookie mistake of poking my head out when I probably would have been better offstaying in the area that I was in. Of course it was not easy getting the permission toplay this dangerous sport I had to beg to play for a year to play plus it is a lot offmoney to get the gear to play and to get a gun it .But I love playing and it is my life.
Intrepid The Intrepid is one of my favorite thing’s I’ve done with my boy scout troop .The intrepid is a decomshined aircraft carrier in New York city that we went to in2011. It was my first time in the big apple I was astonished on how large the city wasone of the thing that I loved that day was that we went to nyc on the day the worldwas supposed to end and we were counting down the time and write when the clockstruck noon we entered a tunnel . During our time in nyc we went to time square wewent to ground zero also . I will never forget my stay in nyc and being with my friendjust made it better.
JacobMy dog Jacob is my mischavious friendhe is always getting into trouble. We gotJacob after we had to put down our malegerman sheperd Bruce. I remember thefirst day we got him we introduced himto our other dog Bella and then took himinside where he proceeded to gobathroom on the floor . Jacob has a hipproblem so we have to take extra specialcare of him. He is my favorite dog and Ilove him dearly. All he does now becausehe’s old is sleep’s and when he sleep’s hesnore’s. He is a great dog.
I own a kayak . I love kayakingat little Buzzards Bay, Cape Cod. My Kayakkayak is 14 feet long which helps mekayak in the ocean. My best memory onmy kayak was when went kayaking in 5to 8 foot swells and my kayak then itstarted to take on water. So I went back tothe beach where I found my dad sleepingon a beach chair. My friends at the Capewill often go kayaking with me and weusually push the limit of what is possible Iremember that it was a sunny nice dayand all of a sudden it got really dark thewind picked up and knew that we shouldget to shore we were no where nearwear we came from so we found a largerock jetty that had a old metal polesticking out we decided that we shouldmore up to that. So I took all the rope offmy crab pot and facined me and our threekayaks together and tied us to the polethe storm passed and during thetime that we were tied off thecurrent picked up tremendously. Wehad to fight our way back to shorebeing pushed by breakers.

No Easy Day Neptune Spear My favorite book that Ive ever read inmy life was No Easy Day the first hand account ofthe mission that killed Bin Landen.

I enjoy the challenge of making them for Iuse no rig just my paracord and my hands .One time I had to improvise and use mybracelet as a gun sling.
QuotesMy favorite quotes that I live by are “ mess with the best die like the rest “ and “killthem all let god sort them out” . I use the quote “mess with the best die like the best“ in school all the time I interpreted the quote as meaning that always strive to doyour best because you will be rewarded by not failing at what you do. I also live by thisquote because it is the American special forces motto and I want to join a elitedivision of the the United state’s Coast Guard.
