The Medallion

One of my favorite things is to learn interesting facts. Whether it’s about people, sports, or anything, that is one reason I selected the newspaper journalism class. Another thing that I love is sports. That is one thing that I could not live without! Right now I am playing fall baseball and might take a soccer club. The two subjects that are my favorite and do the best at are math and science.

I have a few pet peeves. For some reason, when someone does not use grammar properly, it drives me crazy! Spiders also drive me crazy. I know that some of them help us, but I still get creeped out! I don’t have Arachnophobia (it’s not that bad), but I can’t stand them. And the last pet peeve of mine are gnats and mosquitoes. Even though gnats don’t do much to you, they still get in my way. (I prefer the Washington Nats)! And mosquitoes…I don’t even have to explain.

One crazy thing about me is that I have 24 cousins all in just my mom’s side of the family! It makes sense since my mom had 11 siblings growing up (nine sisters and two brothers), and all from Spain. My favorite superhero is Batman, and if I had a superpower it would be to fly! I love the Washington Redskins, Nationals, and Capitals. I do not watch professional basketball. My favorite quote is “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Well, now you know a bit about myself!
