Almost every month there is family event. I have a big family (mom, dad, two sisters, and brother) so there are birthdays, holidays, and then there is tailgating the rosebowl for bruin games. “U_ C_L_A UCLA! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! GO! BRUINS!” I also play basketball at the park. I play often, and I even have a nickname. I enjoy being a TV coach, and I talk to myself when games are on. My teams are UCLA, 49ers, Lakers, Kings, Dodgers. Surfing at Malibu is fun too, but it feels like sitting in traffic because it’s like a zoo when the surf is good. When you catch that one good ride, you forget all about that. My favorite local bar near my apartment is Q's Billiard. Mostly I go there to watch a sports games or hangout. I like dogs, and my family says I should get one. Right now I don’t have a dog but my parents, brother, and sister do. I like playing with them when the family meets up. I am a military veteran. I served five years in the Navy and traveled to many different countries.
