I am twelve, live in Virginia, and like doing lots of things. My mom won't let me have TV or video games, so I have to play with my dog for fun. I also build forts and tree houses, and dig holes - BIG holes. I have an older sister and brother but they are in college and I don't see them much any more,
I won 2nd prize for the county art contest and went on to the area contest and won 1st prize ($75!!). The next year I won 2nd in the are Art Contest. I have also won prizes in the PTA Reflections contest, am top scorer for the class and grade and school in AR (Accelerated Reader) points.
I have lots of ribbons and awards for swim meets last summer too.
I play guitar and am learning saxaphone in band at school. I am trying to start a rock band, but most kids my age can't play an instrument and don't want to pracitce much.
I love to write and keep journals - some fact, some fantasy. I also like making up cartoons. Maybe I'll be a cartoonist one day.
Last fall I made my first 'documentary' on video and am working on my second documentary. The first one was about travelling the intracoastal waterway. The second one is about my little town.
I really like history and my friends and I dress up like we are pirates or from the civil war era. I have made wooden guns, and bows and arrows, and camping stuff for us to use.
I also like swimming and diving. I was doing high-diving for awhile. Now I am on the local swim team. When I can, I like to go sailing on my little Minifish. I also like dirt biking, I had a Honda 70 until it got stolen.
