I am super duper thankful for dogs. Dogs are the best. I have a dog. His name is Tucker. He is a golden doodle and a very good dog. Every time I see a dog I smile. When I’m working at The Presque Isle Yellow Bike during the summer and somebody walks by with a dog, I immediately cease all working and take a moment to appreciate the majestic beast. Sometimes when I am bored I just google image search “Cute puppies,” and can kill several hours scrolling through. I also enjoy the phrase “Sup Dawg.” My family is cool too.
I am thankful for the opportunity to attend Cathedral Prep. This school has not only built me in my athletic and academic ability, but I’ve gained a brotherhood experience like no other. The friendships I made at Cathedral Prep are amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Through the football team, rally crew, and in the classroom I have many people I consider to be brothers to me. The teachers here are awesome as well. They all want to help us succeed and for the most part, they do. Thank you, Cathedral Prep.

What am I thankful for? I am thankful mostly for my family. My mother, sister, grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins have always been there for me. Whether it’s during a tough time or when everything is well, they are there to pick me up and there to make me smile. Health, my life, passion, a house, and food are only some of the other things that I am blessed with and thankful for. God giving me the chance to play baseball and succeed is another opportunity that I am thankful. These are the things I’m mostly thankful for.

I have much to be thankful for in my life. From the shoes on my feet, to the bed I sleep in, to the food on my plate, I cannot be grateful enough to be this fortunate. However, these material things cannot even begin to compare to the love, support and guidance my parents have shown me throughout my entire life no matter how difficult a situation may be. They are always there for me and it is near impossible to repay them for that. They have shaped me into the person I am today and I am forever thankful.
I am thankful for music. As Stevie Wonder perfectly said it, “Music is a work within itself, with a language we all understand.” By this, I believe that Stevie refers to how music is something that everyone can appreciate, no matter their background. I am thankful for my father and my brothers for exposing me to such a large diversity of music. From this, I am able to appreciate a large assortment of music, from mostly any genre. Music is something that I am truly thankful for and passionate about. From Tame Impala to Bollywood, music is truly universally appreciated.
