I love playin basketball and being outdoors doing anything. I love summer! Fireworks, being at the lake, riding horses, sleeping outside, playing in basketball tournaments, 4 - wheeling, concerts, everthing about summer! My favorite season though is basketball season, my family lives inside a gym all winter long! I love hangin out with friends! I have the best roommates ever! And I love being with my family. My brothers and sister are my best friends and my parents are my inspiration and greatest support, I love them so much!
