To begin with, my style of music is rap and hip pop. Both genres have come a long way and artists are constantly changing the flow and adding there own twist. Artists that I listen to are Drake, J Cole, and Kendrick Lamar. I like their music because they talk about how they came up from being poor and struggling to being big in the music industry. When I listen to them I feel like I escape all the problems that are going in world and I just focus on myself for a moment. I tend to reflect on myself and focus on what makes me happy as well as how I can make others happy. I especially like the fact that they never forget where they come from and how they put in the work to get where they are. Some even dropped out of school to pursue their passion in the rap game. Of course I don't plan on dropping out but I admire them for the fact that they stay humble and and they strive for greatness despite the struggle they encountered throughout their life. In conclusion, I appreciate their music and I truly don't know what I would do without music influencing my life.

To begin with, I live in a small town called Fortuna. The county has a lot of outstanding scenery like the beach, redwood trees, and breathtaking views from mountain tops that allow you to look as far as the eye can see. Its also a very rural town which means that its quiet and calm. The county is full of life as far as having a lot of greenery and overall a safe place to grow up. In conclusion, if you're tired of the city and you're looking for peace and quiet, Fortuna is perfect for you.

   A thing I would change however is maybe add something to do. For example an amusement park or a boardwalk. It would definitely change the way of life because people would spend more time with their family. Another thing I would change is the weather. The weather here is quite horrible. Its usually about 60 degrees with wind so it gets really cold. I would rather us get more sun year long even though some people cant even withstand 70 degrees. All in all despite the weather and how boring it is, I love my town for the simple fact that its where I grew up and it will always have a special place in my heart.
