What matters to AaronS
Faith: My faith is one of the most important parts of my life. I have been a strong Christian my whole life. My faith affects lots of things in my life. Such as, I go to church every Sunday and volunteer to run the soundboard. I believe that God helps me through the day and helps me with all that I do. Another part of my faith is baptism/confirmation. When I was little, I was baptized or brought into my faith. When I went into seventh grade I went through a course called confirmation. This is where I learn about my faith so that when I got to eighth grade I could get confirmed and take my faith as my own.
Skateboarding: Lots of my free time (When I’m not playing soccer or doing homework) is spent on skateboarding. I love to skate because it is one of the most relaxing things to me. Also with skateboarding you can never accomplish everything. There is always something bigger and better out there to land a trick off of. I think that skateboarding is a great sport because you have to customize your own skateboard. It kind of makes you appreciate your board more when you build it yourself. You make more of an effort to take care of it. It also is a great thing to do with your friends. Some of my favorite times in my life are with my friends skateboarding. With friends it’s easier to skate because you have people to encourage you. Then when you are tired and thirsty you can always go to a gas station and get a slushy or something. I think that skateboarding is a great sport that is fun and relaxing.
Education: My education is really important. I may not like going to school and having homework but if you really think about it your education is one of the most important parts of your life. The quality of education you get, decides what job and career you will have for the rest of your life. If you work hard and get a good education you can then get a high paying job and then you can live an easier lifestyle.
Music: Music is an important part of my life. I love to listen to music and I love to make music too. I have played the trumpet since fourth grade. I also have recently started playing the drums and I really like them. I like music because it is an art. People can say what they want through songs and if it is good they can make a career out of it.
Family and Friends: My family and friends are an important part of my life. My family is there if I need them and my mom has always let me play sports even though sports can sometimes cost a lot of money. My dad has always loved sports, so when I was little he would teach me how to play sports.
My friends are always fun to hang out with. I have some great friends that help me out if I need help. I have a lot of great times with my friends such as skateboarding. Friends are very important because they are there for you, like your parents, but your friends can relate to you better so it is usually easier to talk to them.
Soccer: I have played soccer probably since I was in kindergarten. I have always loved to play soccer. Soccer for me usually has helped me get through the beginning of the year since that is when soccer season begins. With all of the stress that comes with the beginning of the school year I can work some of it out and relax when I’m playing soccer.
