If I had to choose one thing about me that I could never live without, I would choose fishing. Fishing is the best way, above all else, that I could spend my time. There’s something about it that just makes me happy. I get really mad when I have to change my plans to go fishing to something else. N...

When I look at our society the way it is, the only thing I can think of is disgust. I don't really know how to explain it because it's different for everybody. To go along with that, trying to achieve the standards that people have set for you is very difficult because in their eyes, you'll never be ...

One of the biggest things that has happened in my life was when I found out that my mom had to get a pacemaker. This is because she had a third degree heart block, which had the bottom of her heart stop communicating with the top. She was legally dead, so they had to bring her back with shocker paddles. ...

Everyone calls me Q because it is a lot easier to say than Stephen. My middle name is Quincy.  The biggest thing that has ever happened to me is moving to Belfast from Texas. It affected me a lot because it was a big change moving from the big city of Houston, Texas, to the small town of Belfast. ...

School gives me something to do instead of sitting around and doing nothing. In order to get anywhere in life, you need an education. I like U.S. History the most because it is interesting to me and it doesn’t bore me. I plan on going to college at Alfred for two years because I have to finish m...

Imagine living in a family of thirty people who are close, and you are the second youngest. My family obviously doesn’t define me. I mean, I am your average teenager: stressed about school, sports, and pretty much that. In fact, probably the thing that bothers me the most would be that I am lazy an...
