Society, Culture & Me

  1. 1.  1. Smallest Town Ever  2. Cruise Sesh  3. The Promenade  4. Student Gov Remix (Ft. Pitbull)  5. One Heck Of A Poker Game  6. Seven-Ten Split  7. Throw It Away  8. The Playoffs  9. Graduation Day
  2. 2. Smallest Town Ever  This song is the opening song because it’s about my hometown, Rockland. Rockland is one of the smallest towns in the area and literally everyone knows everything about everyone. But I’ve enjoyed my stay in this great town and it has definitely shaped who I am.
  3. 3. Cruise Sesh  One of the best things to do in Rockland when all seems boring is to just pick up a few friends and drive around. Everyone gets to know each other really well and “what happens in the car, stays in the car”. This song is for those great rides that killed so much time.
  4. 4. The Promenade  The senior prom was one of the best nights of my life. I honestly didn’t plan on going until around a month before when I finally asked someone and it ended up being one of the best nights of my life.
  5. 5. Student Government Remix  I wasn’t very active in school my first two years there. But during my junior year I decided to join student government. At times it could be very lame, but I ended up meeting so many great people and I honestly feel that it’s made me a more confident person.
  6. 6. One Heck Of A Poker Game  Poker was another fun thing to do in Rockland. We’d get about six of us and start a game at like 8 o’clock. These games would rage on until around 6 AM and everyone would become irate at each other until eventually there would be a winner. But these games were also very fun and we all had a great time.
  7. 7. Seven-Ten Split  Bowling has been one of my favorite things since I was very young. I’ve always loved just having a good time at the alley with a few friends. There’s nothing like spending a Friday night with some great friends, bowling, playing at the arcade and eating pizza.
  8. 8. Throw It Away  This event probably had the most significant effect on me. Joining track and field in high school opened up so many doors for me that have made me the person I am today. “throw it away” is the title because I threw shot put and discus. My last meet ever was also my best ever, throwing my personal three bests and both events and running my first ever running event.
  9. 9. The Playoffs  One of the best things that my friends did was watching professional sports as much as possible. I could hold an intelligent sports conversation with virtually anyone. And once the playoffs rolled around, especially in basketball, there was always someone willing to throw a small party for it.
  10. 10. Graduation Day  Graduation Day is obviously an important and emotional day for everyone but it was very significant for me. I didn’t feel like I was ready to move on from high school yet, but after graduating, it took a few days to set in, but it felt so crazy to know I was out of high school. I’ll remember graduation as more than just a ceremony in a very hot gymnasium but a symbol of growing up.
  11. 11. Special Thanks  I’d like to give a special thanks to all of the following people:  John Mayer, Peter Griffin, Chris “Birdman” Andersen, The Chinese guy for The Hangover that’s in those shoe commercials now, Tim Tebow, My 10th grade english teacher, Ms. Cahill, Johnny Knoxville, Delonte West, T.I., Blake Griffin and Antonio ‘Minotauro’ Rodrigo Nogueria and his brother Antonio ‘Minotoro’ Rogerio Nogueria.
