I didn’t want to follow in anyone else’s footsteps.

For me, focusing on my interests and the things I enjoy always reminded me of a happy childhood poetry story. I would love to find the Compositon notebook with some of my early poems that I penned in school. I asked around if a Composition notebook was laying around but my uncle said no. Darn I wish I could’ve found my Composition notebook. I like visiting Brooklyn where I lived with my family in a two family brownstone in Crown Heights. Brooklyn is way different from the way it was back then. I still like Brooklyn but there is a Bagel Pub around the corner that sells healthy juice and bagels and a hole host of deli options. I love the green machine spinach, cucumber, kale, strawberries and coconut water. I also know that the healthiest people are vegan. Meat lovers are not as healthy as vegetarians but I eat eggs. I just don’t do dairy because I am lactose intolerant. I love fish. I cook fish I usually like my fish broiled but sometimes fried. I like tuna fish on a plain bagel with craisins and apple slices. I always say no to meat but occasionally I have to have a piece of fried chicken. It’s the only thing I crave. I know milk chocolate tastes good but dark chocolate is healthier. Summertime at NAMI we usually have fried chicken in the park and go to a theater event. I love theater but most people don’t have the appreciation that I have for theater. Theater acting is something I really like to experience. Many members of the social group don’t care for theater. Theater is something I really enjoy.
