My favorite music

My favorite music!?

My favorite type of music is older rock n' roll, older country music, rap, and a little bit of heavy metal. Ive grown u around older rock and country since i was just a kid. My parents loved it, its all they would listen to. In my family, we always have some type of old rock n roll or country playing during special events, like birthdays, holidays, special occasions, or even just hanging out! My favorite old rock n roll band probably has to be "Def leppard" or "Lynyrd Skynyrd". Both have been played a lot by me personally! My favorite country artist is probably "Randy Travis". My generation loves rap, don't ask me why but its just a popular genre. My favorite rap artist has to be either "Wiz Khalifa" or "Desiigner". both of them make awesome songs. Wiz makes more of a  laid back music and desiigner is more hype. Heavy metal is something i listen to ocansionally.

Reflection on place and culture

Here in the USA we have many different cultures and ways of life here. As americans we are usually very prideful about our country and defend our rights that were signed on that day of 1776 were our decloration of independence was signed. The biggest religion in the USA is Christianity. Many Americans here including me are Christians. However many other religions can be fond here such as catholic, Islamic, jewish, even pastafarian. Me personally love the fact that we are a free country. We have men and women that fight for our rights when we are snuggled in a warm bed, or watching TV. They stand on the front lines and put their lives on it so we can enjoy the things we have here. We have rights to speak, to bear arms ( Which is my favorite ), even the right to vote. All this is why im proud to call myself an American.
However there are some things that have been disappointing me. One being all the hate groups coming about. Black lives matter is one of them. I don't see why you would want to separate yourself from another skin color just because your ancenstors may have been treated wrong. ALL lives matter. And another thing that really disappoints me is the kneeling down or sitting during our national anthem. I respect your right to do it but I don't respect your reasoning. To dishonor the Men and Women who give you that right just because you believe that black lives are far more important than others, is completely unacceptable.

About Me

Hello, My time is Tyler Harris. I'm 16 years old i'm a 10th grade student at Fortuna Union high school. Some of my hobbies include hunting, fishing, and sports. I've been doing all three since my parents would let me. All of my family have been hunters and fishers since they were kids. Its our way of getting good reliable food from nature. You never know what goes into todays food at grocery stores. I've been playing sports since I was just a little baby. My mom would put a bucket on my high chair when I was a baby and I would throw a sock in their as if it were a basketball hoop. Sports have been apart of my life forever. I even love watching them!
The type of hunting that I like is Buck hunting and Duck hunting. When the season comes, I go into game mode. The hunt is ON! I love getting up before sunrise and head into the deep foothills of Hayfork California were the air is cleaner than ever and its a type of silence and peace you cant experience anywhere else. Being alone on top of a mountain makes you feel like you are one with your ancestors. My dad has taken me fishing since I was 10 months. I may not have been able to understand much but my mind could capture images that would carry me in life till death. Some of the sports that I play are football and golf. I've played football since I was 8 years old. Now I play for Fortuna high school. I'm a starter on both offense and defense and take my positions very seriously. Its a sport id like to play for the rest of my high school career, along with golf. Last year was my first year of playing golf. It was really fun and I enjoyed it a lot. It was a good time with my friends to relax and play a sport we can play together for the rest of our lives. That's why I do the things that I love.
Well I hope you enjoyed my first little blog post. This is my first attempt at one, and i'm not the best! I hope whoever sees this can relate to me in a good way and we can talk later on in life and maybe even meet in person. See you next post!
