Boxing My dad and I have always enjoyed watching boxing together on TV.But one day when I went to visit him he had a surprise for me. He had boughttickets to a boxing game. There were 3 or 4 boxing matches but at the veryending was the most important one. The very last one was a man called LaBamba who had been undefeated and could possibly loose it to his opponent.This match didn’t even last to the 2nd round! In the first round La Bamba had hitthe other guy near his kidney and knocked him out to the floor and he could notcontinue on with the fight. So the fight ended, the other guy got sent to thehospital, and La Bamba still had his belt and was undefeated. I’m glad I wentcause there were some really good fights that night.
Chicago Cubs My dad, little brother Jose, and I were on vacation in Chicago causemy dad was born and raised there. All of us wanted to go to some kind ofsporting event and the only one available for the time we were there was aChicago Cubs baseball game. So we went to the game with my two uncles. Formy first Cubs game I was not impressed. They had lost by A LOT! It felt as ifthe game had been dragging on forever. I enjoyed watching the game andeating the peanuts but I was disappointed at the score of the game. My dad, bro ther Jose, an d I at Wrigley Field
Dance I have been dancing since I was 3 years old. Over the years I have gone to 3 different dance studio’s. My mom first put me in dance cause most young girls want to do ballet. Once I got a bit older my mom asked me “Do you still want to do dance”, and to her surprise I still did. I love dance because your acting a character or role threw movements. Also when you step on the stage and do the dance I forget about everything, am not embarrassed or ashamed, and don’t care who is watching. Also because dance really keeps me in shape. No matter how much pain it causes me and how tired it makes me I can never get tired of dance! Imagine.Hey NaNa. My Myjazz dance lyrical dance

Turtle About 3 years ago me , my cousin Gabriella , and other cousin Melanie wereon a bike trail in Milford. The bike trail was right next to a pond. We were riding ourbikes and then decided that we wanted a break so we pulled over to the side into acircle. As I was pulling my bike in I saw something small and dark right in front of mybike. Luckily I turned my bike in time trying to avoid hitting it. I stopped my bike I gotoff and looked at the small dark thing that I thought was a rock. But as I looked closerat it I realized it wasn’t a rock at all. It was a baby turtle! I didn’t want to just leave himthere and have somebody else possibly hit him so I brought him home with me. To thisday I still own him and have named him “Sully”. My turtle Sully

I satoutside with my dog until somebodycame home. I still don’t know whatcause d it to move. I think it wasparanormal though.
Virgo I was born on September 19, 1998.So that makes me a Virgo. In a article I readabout Virgos it says “They may dwell too muchon the past and over complicate things and thismay limit their ability to move forward andconfuse themselves.”. I find that true aboutmyself. The article also says “They will say thefeel okay or everything is alright even when itsnot. This is an easy way out, the one thing thatVirgo does not like to analyze is their feelingsso pretending everything is okay is a gooddefense mechanism for not having to take acloser look at their feelings. Virgo has anunpredictable and sometimes unstabletemperament”. I also fine this true aboutmyself. So my personality is very closely relatedthe horoscope of a Virgo.
Wish Every time that Imake a wish it is always thesame thing. “ I wish thateverything I want to happenwill happen”. I personally donot believe in wishes or thatthey come true .
