This is my family. Not my whole family...just a few of us. Starting from the left, is me, my grandmother, my sister, my mom, and my dad.

This is my brother, Nicholas. This also happens to be my favorite memory. It was this past Fourth of July, we went to his girlfriend's family's lakehouse to spend the day. We rode jetskis, went tubing, and kneeboarding. It was my first time ever to ride a jetski and then I got to drive it! It was also my first time to go tubing, and it was so much fun. My sister and I were extremely sore for the next couple of days though.

This collage represents my activities. The top picture is me powerlifting. I started last year (junior year) and I love it. I never would have thought that I would enjoy lifting weights, but a friend of mine talked me into it. I plan to continue this year, and I hope to go to regionals at least.

The middle picture is a shot of me practicing archery, which is something I enjoy immensely. I guess you could say that I am a sharp shooter, because I have very good aim and can hit a small target from very far away. The farthest I've ever shot was 60 yards, and I had a group about 5 inches in diameter. I don't really compete though, mostly because there isn't a 4-H archery club. I don't have a picture of it, but I also used to participate in the 4-H rifle club, before it ceased to exist.

The bottom picture is at the most recent fair. I showed a scramble heifer, and won 1st in my weight class and 3rd overall. I have raised animals all my life, usually pigs (which I never did very well at), and I plan to show a steer this year. The cool thing about it is that the steer I have was born from the scramble heifer I raised my freshman year. We bred her shortly after that fair, and she had a bull calf. I decided to show him for my senior project, as a cool little way to wrap up my last year in 4-H.

This is my cat, Leo. He is half Bengal (we don't know what the other half is). I don't want to sound crazy, and I'm too young to be a crazy old cat lady, but I love cats. I have had several over the years, and can't say that I have a favorite, because each is unique. I think that I like them so much because they kind of reflect my personality in a way. They're fiercely independent, but if they want something, you darn sure better give it to them or they won't quit bugging you about it. They're classy, don't let stuff get under their skin, and like to sleep all day.
