I believe that everyone should always have fun with what they are doing or just make the best out of what they have. I believe this because whether I am racing my dirt bike in Oklahoma, or just playing football, baseball, or basketball, I just try to have fun because if your not having fun you are usually down in the dumps. So even when I mess up I make fun of myself and just go on. Also when I am hanging out with my cousin if we are not having fun we will start cracking jokes and saying lines off of Tommy Boy that we have memorized from watching it a hundred times. Also when we go race every weekend I don’t care about winning I just like to hang out with my buddies and have the best time I have ever had.

Also I like to have a lot of fun by having friends over and doing stupid stuff like jumping my golf cart or watching funny videos in our media room, or going paintballing and making fun of my friends because of the whelps that they have on them from getting shot by me and the other kids.

Also I love to take friends to our Lake House and wakeboard, tube, and ride our jet ski. For instance one day we took my cousin tubing and we were going about 30 and we took a turn and he flew off and did cart wheels over the water which was really funny. Then later that same day we were riding my jet ski and we jumped this wave and when we landed we flipped off and it hurt but it was fun and worth it.

Also during the summer I love to go to camps because it is a great way to have fun and hang out with my friends. For example this summer I went to two camps I went to camp war eagle which was really fun because me and like 6 of my friends were there and we did everything there they had to offer from wakeboarding all the way to just swimming or shooting hoops. I also went to the Arkansas razorback camp which was one of the best times I have probably had at a camp besides camp war eagle because we got to stay in the dorms that kids going to the U of A stay in with one of our friends and I stayed with my friend who’s name is Jackson Pelphrey and my friend Mason Hobbs and his brother stayed right across from us in another dorm.

Truly, I believe that a day without fun is a day wasted.
