Hello! I will be talking briefly about some of my hobbies and interests.

Since I was younger, I always loved looking up at the night sky and viewing all of the stars. As
I grew older, I would watch documentaries or use the internet to find more images that would
show me the beauty of space without owning a fancy telescope or going there physically. Now,
I make sure I keep updated on whatever is new about space exploration. Lately, it seems like
the United States and other countries are making huge technological advances. Space has always
fascinated me, from reading books as a kid in the library to viewing the first images of Pluto upclose.

I started watching baseball when I was only two or three years old. I remembering watching baseball
games when my family would put the television on. Since I was a kid, my favorite team to cheer for is
the New York Yankees. I love the sport of baseball because it is a easy game to learn. You throw a ball
and try to hit it so you can run around the bases. Whenever I hang out with my younger cousin, we usually
talk about the present state of the Yankees or just play catch for an afternoon. I also used to collect
baseball cards to keep track of my favorite players. Baseball is a fun sport to watch and play.

Being in the outdoors has always been one of my favorite hobbies. Before high school, my family and I
would go camping every summer. We would usually go to a beautiful campground in upstate New York. I was also
part of the Cub Scouts when I was younger and we would go camping in a camp ground in New Jersey. Nature
is very beautiful and I enjoy hiking and watching all the wildlife go about their normal activities, Making
a fire is also very awesome. I remember toasting marshmallows with my cousins while we talked, looked at the
night sky and listened to the crickets all around us.

My interest in space also got me intersted in movies about space. The first Star Wars movie I watched was A New Hope
and it was amazing. Seeing all of the huge ships fight in space and the different aliens fueled my interest for both space
and Star Wars. My cousins and I would play Star Wars video games such as Battlefront and Rogue Squadron and we
would get into fights with our own lightsabers. Recently, there has been a surge of Star Wars content with the new movies
coming out. This is one of the best times for Star Wars fans to be a part of. I am excited to see how the story progresses
in the future.

My last hobby that I would like to talk about is traveling. My family and I have gone to many different places throughout
my nineteen years of existance. I have traveled all across the northeast US and I have visited California a couple of times.
Outside of the states, I have visited Mexico, Taiwan and Japan. I love travelling because it provides me a new insight on how
other people live all over the world. It was fun to see how hot Mexico was in the morning and how cold San Francisco got at night. Sightseeing
is also another thing I like about traveling. I visited places I always heard about my entire life such as the Golden Gate
Bridge and Mt. Fuji.
