FC: Experiences, Memories, and Things I Like in my Life
1: Snow I love snow! All that is ever on my mind is snow! In the summer I don't like how hot it is and I would rather have it snow! Once it is winter I am always hoping there will be a bleak, big, blizzard or even for it to snow! Eventually when spring comes, it is back to boringness, I LOVE SNOW!!!!!!!
2: Fish | I love fish. I catch them, have them for pets, and even eat them! If you don't believe me, I have four fish tanks. I have a 20 gallon tank, a 55 gallon tank and two five gallon tanks. All of my tanks are beginning to get “out of hand”; they are hard to take care of and to clean weekly. I have fish that are more aggressive than piranas in my 55 and 20 gallon tanks. Fishing is also one of my favorite things to do. I fish on almost every weekend. I have caught a 30 pound gar before. A gar is a long, skinny, colorful, and aggressive fish and it has a mouth that looks like a alligators. It lives in fresh water, not salt water. Lastly, I love to eat fish. I get so hungry for fresh fish that I could eat tons of fish all year long! I don't really have a favorite kind of fish because I love how good every type tastes.
3: Catching a Gar This summer I caught a gar, which is a type of fish, in Lake Chautaqua, New York. Gars are a huge fish that can grow up to four feet in length. They also have a mouth that looks like an alligator's mouth with huge teeth. I was fishing when I caught it on July 4th , 2010 at an Independence Day party with another kid. We had seen them jumping the whole time we had been fishing, but all were were catching was small fish. Right before the fireworks started, I got a huge tug that almost pulled me into the murky water! After that happened, the fish jumped; and sure enough, it was a huge gar. It took a whole hour to reel the gar in because I didn't want it to break the flimsy line with its teeth or its power. It was as strong as superman! I had to keep letting the line out and then reeled it in when the gar fish got tired. After five minutes, I was tired. Once I got it in, my new friend netted it, and he needed help pulling it up because it was so heavy. I was so excited that I caught it because apparently one had not been caught in Chautaquau Lake since 1970. It was four feet long and had hundreds of razor-sharp teeth. I was scared to take the hook out, so a nice man took the hook out for me. Once he took the hook out, everybody took a lot of pictures, and we released it. It swam off into the distance and jumped as it went. That was by far the biggest fish that I had ever caught! | f
4: My Grandmother My grandmother is very special to me. She lives in Annapolis, Maryland, on the Chesapeake Bay. My grandparents have a boat and dock, and I love to fish off of their dock. I do not get to see my grandmother that often; so when I do, it is a really big treat. I typically go back there once a summer, but I get to stay for a little over a month. My grandmother as nice as an angel! She gives me presents for every birthday and holiday. While you would never know it because of her positive outlook, my grandmother has really severe arthritis, but it is still alright. These are some of the reasons why she is my favorite relative who is far away. I hope that I get to see her more often to visit with her, as she is a pleasant person with whom to be.
5: SKIING I love to ski. If I could be anywhere right now, I would want to be at Breckenridge skiing. When I am there, I am not a big fan of doing tricks and big jumps; but occasionally, I will go on small to medium-sized jumps. The rest of the time when I am skiing I am doing double-black diamonds with my dad. That is really my favorite part of skiing. I also really enjoy skiing in powder. I have skied in powder all the way up to my waist. It was awesome! The last thing I like to do is to carve on blue slopes, and fly down the mountain like an airplane. I love to go fast and jump off of the hills. I would die if I never skied again, because I love it so much! I am a fast bird flying downward when it comes to skiing.
6: WHEN I WAS SMALL... Some parts of my baby and toddler years are easily remembered, but some information I had to receive from my parents. Oddly enough, I was born during a big, bad, blizzard! (And I still LOVE the snow!) I was born on St. Patrick's Day in 1998 in downtown Denver, Colorado at St. Joseph's Hospital. Therefore, I have been officially designated as the Leprechaun of our family. My mom's doctor (Dr. Nieland, Leo, MD) thought that I was going to be born early-- around 28 weeks of her pregnancy with me. Luckily, I came right on time! I was a very cute baby, but apparently did not like to sleep very much. (I still don't!) I loved to play “Peek a Boo”, to clap my hands, and to smile for photos at the youngest age. When I was three years old, I actually learned all of the words to “God Bless America”, and I sang it at my preschool. These are a few of my and my parents' memories from when I was a small child.
7: Remote Control Mania I love remote-control things. My entire room is full of remote control cars and remote control planes. My favorite plane is called a super cub; and it has a four-foot wingspan, and it is three feet long. When I fly it, I take it to a big field and I fly through it into the wind. During the flight, I usually do tricks and flips, and it is extremely fun to fly. The battery lasts 10-15 minutes and I can tell when it is starting to run out of battery. When it does start to run out of battery, I land it and bring it in. Also, it is hard to fly my plane when the wind is yelling at it. My favorite remote control car is called a stampede 4x4 brushless. It is a waterproof monster truck that goes 60 mph(VROOOM). I really like to jump it, drive it in mud, and drive it in snow. Those are my remote control things, and they are my favorite toys.
