He watches over me when I’m asleep, and He tries to guide me in the right path. I try my best to follow, but I always try to take shortcuts. I wish I could do better than I have. But with all of the detractions in the world it’s just getting harder. We all need to do better in following the way of Jesus Christ. Christianity has always been the most important thing in my life. I have been following Jesus Christ since I was born, and I go to Grace Chapel. Without God in my life, I don’t think I could do anything. He is my love, my hope, my dreams, and my cause.
There are the ones who put me to bed at night, the ones who are at every game and every show. They wave me goodbye and welcome me home. They help me and teach me, but most of all they love me; my family. I have two brothers and one sister. Mason is twelve and we are the most competitive brothers ever. He plays AA hockey for the Littleton Hawks. Carter is ten and he is the most innocent little kid. He also plays A hockey for the Littleton Hawks. My little sister, Chelsea is seven; she can really stand up for herself. We toughen her up and make her work for everything.
These are the people who go with me everywhere and support me with whatever I do, no matter what. They pick me up when I’m down, and laugh at jokes that aren’t funny. They are my teammates, my classmates, but most of all, my friends. You can’t do anything without friends whether it is sports or school. I can never go a day without talking to any of them. Coming from a small school, Arapahoe gives me the opportunity to have so many more friends.
You have to work for every ounce of gratification, every ounce of playing time, and every ounce of recognition. Sports: they mean the world to me. They’re what get me up in the morning and what I’m waiting for every day. They matter to me because, without sports in my life I would be a nobody. It helps me with discipline, respect, and self confidence. It will keep me in shape, and out of trouble.
Music is everywhere. It is in the halls and in my house. Music keeps people entertained at all times. Without music the world would be boring and dull. I have been playing guitar for four years now and I can’t go a day without picking it up and playing. I also play piano, drums, and bass guitar. I play in two bands; my church worship band, my own band with some of my best friends. We have practice every Sunday, and we play shows all over Colorado. The only reason it matters to me is because I love to entertain people, and with music it helps me do that.
