I would like to tell you, a little bit about some things I like, and then a little bit about some things I don't like. First of all, I really enjoy exercising. Some of my favorite types of exercises are swimming, especially in rivers in the country and in big oceans, because I like to jump over the waves. I also really enjoy dancing. I like dancing to American music because that's what I know best and I also like Salsa and Merengue, which are more Latin types of music. I also like to walk in the woods and to explore. I like to walk through forests, and I like to hear rivers. I enjoy meeting new people too. I like to find out about different ways of life, what different people think, where they're from, and how they live. Probably one of my favorite things are animals. I really love dogs, and cats, and horses. When i was little i always tried to talk my mom in letting me have more animals. But usually she wouldn't. So i think now that I'm going to have my own house, I'll try to get lots of animals. Some things that i don't really like are rude people. Sometimes people are not very nice to strangers, and that makes me feel bad. I also don't really like driving. I tend to get pretty bored in the car. And it seems like it just takes a long time to get there. One final thing I don't really like is waiting. Sometimes I'm not a very patient person. And i just like to hurry things up.
