A Real Hero

The type of person that comes to my mind when I think of a real hero is someone who is there whenever he or she are needed.  Whether its saving someone from a burning house, or being the best friend they can by comforting you in a time of need.  They are someone you can really trust, or then again, someone that came out of nowhere to do something spectacular.  When we think of the word hero, we usually think of superman, or another character, but heroes are those that make the biggest difference without all the recognition.  I can personally say that my hero is probably my best friend Nolan.  Why?  Well, it may sound weird, but he’s someone that I can count on to always be there for me, and he knows I will return the favor for him.  It’s not necessarily what the person does, its how they go about doing it.  And heroes are very special people.

 

Do you think the United States government should become more or less “democratic?”

I think the United States government should stay the same.  And my reasoning behind this, to be com-pletetly honest, is that I don’t know much about our government these days.  All I know is there is a very bad economic issue.  But, would making our government more or less democratic really fix that major issue, or all the other issues?  I personally don’t think so, there are a lot more factors involved other than democracy.  I think if we were more democratic it would help, but more things need to happen with the economy first.  So yes, I’m kind of saying I think we should be more democratic, but I’m also in the middle saying that it wouldn’t hurt us that much more if we were less democratic.

The Color Blue

This color means a lot to me.  It is my favorite color and I wear it everyday.  In fact, half of my clothes are blue.  For some reason it was just my favorite color when I was younger.  Maybe because the Yankees and Nets had blue in their team colors.  My two favorite sports teams for basketball and baseball.  Blue will always be my favorite color, and it is my inspiration to a lot of things I buy or do.  (although the walls of my room are red!!!!!!!)

But anyway here are a few pictures that represent the color blue.

            

 

 

If the Electoral College was abolished, and people directly elected the President, what should the qualification be to vote in a Presidential Election?

I think the qualification should be you would have to be at least 21 to vote.  I believe this because it seems like that is when people start becoming adults and more mature.  I think they will have a better say in who should be president, and know more about it.  A lot of things these days are becoming that you have to be older to do certain things.  And I believe voting should be a part of that. 

I also believe that everyone should have to vote because if it was be people vote, and not everyone voted, then it wouldn’t really be a fair vote, would it?

So this is what I think.  Tell me what you think it should be.

Let’s Be Green!!!!!

To be green my family recycles all the bottles we can.  And that’s about it!  I want my family to be more green becasue it will help our environment.  The one who is the most “green” in my family is my grandpa because he recycles everything.  Newspapers, bottles, anything that is recyclable.  The only thing standing in the way of my family being more green is time.  We are always busy and we don’t always pay attention to the little things in life.  Even the bottles we bring back for redemption, sometimes it takes us months to find 30 minutes to bring them back.  Until we find time to be a more green family, I don’t think we will be one, and I don’t see it happening anytime soon.

Attracting Visitors To My Blog

The main way I attract visitors to my blog is by commenting on other people’s blog.  Usually they will comment back.  Some good blogs to comment on are those that are widely known around the blogging world.  Another way I attract visitors is by writing at least 2 posts each week.  This ensures that your blog is updated and that every time a person comes on for the first time or the 20th time, they have something to comment on.  I am lucky though because my strategy works and i do get a lot of visitors and comments.  The more interesting my posts are and the more thought i put into them also contributes to my visitors and comments.

Here are the three posts that got a lot of feedback on my blog at different times this year:

What Action Would My Name Be If It Was A Verb?????

If my name was a verb, it would have to be run.  And the reasoning behind this is not that I am always running, but that I’m always on the run or busy.  I’m someone who keeps doing something no matter what the circumstances are.  I actually hate to run, so in this instance the verb run stands for something other than what you think it might. 

What Inspires Me?????

Well, I know this is kind of like the post about what keeps me going, but it really isn’t.  If you think about it, these topics are two totally separate things.

Soooo, to answer the question.  What inspires me the most is my parents.  They inspire me to play baseball.  They inspire me to do well in school.  They inspire me to do alomst everything I do in life.  But, what also inspires me to do baseball are these people: Francisco Liriano and David Price.  And the reason that these two people inspire me is because they are my idols.  The are young left-handed pitchers in the MLB that are going to be stars in a few years.  I watch their every move when they pitch and my dream is to one day be able to pitch against them in a game and learn from them.  But, most of all, it is my parents that inspire me.
