Knights of literary Reading
My earliest memory of reading is of my mom reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to me. The first book that I remember reading on my own was The Red Pyramid. I read this in the first grade and I was really into it. Then I started reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I had taken all four of my next door neighbor’s books and read them in four nights. The next memory I had was of one of my teachers yelling at me to get a book. I just decided to grab the first one I saw on the shelf. It was Cracker. I was really into that book for about a week. Now, I have a hard time focusing on what I’m doing after some family struggles. It’s more of a struggle of finding a book and focusing on it.
I want to get a major in both law and theoretical physics. I also want to minor in banking. I feel that this is a good trio of knowledge. After reading the book about Mr. Richard Feynman's book about going to both MIT and Princeton, I would like to go to more colleges than one.
I read baseball and basketball statistics because, I want to know the MLB, NCAA Basketball and NFL standings. I have an app on my phone that tells me the standings.

This quote means to me, when my parents started fighting, no matter how bad it seems to get just try to stay happy and don't give up on them.
The little education Dickens received as a youth ended for good by the time he was 15 when his father failed to come up with tuition. He got a low-level job as a junior clerk at a legal firm. Never sympathetic toward lawyers, the young Dickens passed a good deal of time there entertaining co-workers with his mimicry and dropping cherry pits onto the hats of people walking below his window. Soon, however, he mastered shorthand, the skill that would enable him to write so prodigiously later in life. He began working as a reporter, ultimately covering Parliament, and later landing a staff job on the Morning Chronicle — the day’s leading competitor to the London Times.
