My leopard geckos
I woke up in the morning on my birthday, i got an amazing breakfast of eggs and pancakes in a smily face. We went in the car for a car drive, i fell asleep on the way to our destination.
I found out that i fell asleep on my seatbelt which gave me a mork on my forehead when i woke up. I woke up and we were in a petsmart parking lot for some reason. So i asked my mom,” why are we in a pet smart mom?”
“For your birthday present my love” my mom replied
We walked in the store and we were greeted with a dog barking at us. He was just a little morkie just trying to find out what we were. We got to the reptile section and my mom said,” Which one u want honey?” I was confused so i asked,” WHAT?!” and we looked at all the reptiles we looked at the lizards and i choose them because they were just so cute! And i choose the best one of them all! WE got some cool stuff for him to like rocks, sticks, logs, and sand. We walked towards the cashier and we scanned everything and i remembered that we need to get i tank, i rushed towards the tank section and i got a 50 inch tank for $50 i rushed towards my mom so we can buy it. We bought all of they stuff for him and we walked towards the car and drove to my new reptile loving life. We got home, we decided to name him tippy because he was all back with just 1 little dot of white on the end of his tail. We set up his tand with the stuff we bought him. We put tippy in the tank and he rushed towards one of the rocks and made himself at home.

Crashing my dirt bike with my friend on the back of it.
It was August 6, 2015 when I crashed my dirt bike, with my friend on the back of it. How we crashed is because of bald tires, and my back tire kicked out around a turn. My friend on the back of it went flying off in the air for about ten seconds and hit the ground hard. When I went flying off I went over the handlebars and hit my body off a tree and sliding across the dirt into a large bolder. After that I layed there for a few seconds and so did my friend. When my friend and I got up from laying down you could still see dust in the air and you could smell gas leaking out of the dirt bike from either the fuel pump or I might have cracked the gas tank. When the dust cleared up fully I picked the dirt bike up and it actually turns out that there was a big hole in the engine casing, the carburetor was all out of place, the gas tank had a big crack in it, and it also had a dent in the side of it. I also assumed that it landed on the rock that it was right next to. While I was looking over the dirt bike to see what was wrong with it my friend was picking up all the pieces that fell off it when it hit the ground there were pieces scattered everywhere the piece that was the farthest away was like ten to fifteen feet away from the dirt bike. Also I forgot to mention that the hand guards broke off. After my friend picked up all the pieces that were scattered I walked the dirt bike back to my house and my friend carried the parts that fell off. When we got back to my house my mom came running outside and said, “What happened, are you guys ok?” And we both said, “Yes.” She brought us to the hospital any way just to be positive that we both were ok. When we went into the hospital my mom had to call my friends mom for her to come and fill out paperwork for the hospital to have for him to get checked out. When we actually got checked out they took x-rays to make sure nothing was broken on my friend and on me. When the doctor looked at the x-rays very carefully you could see that my friends nose was broken, but still in place. The doctors came out and said, “Since your nose is still in place we don't need to do anything on it.” After words my friends mom took my friend back to his house, and I went back to my house as well. If you ever ride something that requires gear for example a dirt bike, or a quad, or even anything I recommend for you to put gear on before going riding.

The Dog Bit
The day I got bit by my dog. That day was not fun, here’s what happened I was me
Very good memoir, lots of reading, and a lot of dioluge.
My first shooting a real gun. (22 rifle)
It was September 3, 2009 when I shot my first gun. Before I shot it I did some research about it. How to hold it, how much kick it has, when the first one was made, how far it shoots, and I looked up all the different parts of it and the names. After that I kept the laptop out on the tab that had all the research on it. Also I watched my friend shoot it, and I was watching where he put his hands, were he put his head, and were he put the wooden part of the gun. So it was my turn to shoot the 22 rifle. So I layed down on the ground with the gun in my hands, and made sure everyone was behind the rope, and not in front of the shooting range. So I lined up the sight with the target that was like two hundred feet away. Also I forgot to say earlier that there is a scope on the gun. I didn’t have to adjust the scope to the distance away because it was already set to the distance to the target. So I shot the gun and I guess my eye was to close to the scope when I was looking through it, and when I shot it the kick back from the gun popped a blood vessel in my eye. So at that time I didn’t know that so I went to the hospital. On the way there part of eye was turning bloodier and bloodier. Also when I looked down you can see some of my eye was turning purple and red now. When we got to the hospital my mom had to fill out paperwork again like always. After she was done filling out the paperwork she gave it to the front desk and shortly after the nurse came out and called me and my mom into the nurse room, and took my weight, height, and pulse. After that she put us back in the waiting room. Shortly after the doctor called us into the hospital rooms, and the doctor examined my eye, and he had me got to the sink that is in the same room and had me wash my eye out. After that he did something that made sure know nerves were broke in my eye, and sure enough there wasn’t so he just said that it is a few popped blood vessel, and that it would heal by itself. The lesson that was learned here is to actually get pro training for shooting a gun and not just go off the internet.
A couple of bays ago I was going camping, And I was so pumped. I had a friend over the day befor. We were sleeping in the tent because I had to air them out anyways. I had an extension cord going from outside the house to in the tent. We had phone chargers, a fane, flashlights, and sleeping bags. The next day I was waiting for shane to wake up so I was on my phone. He finally woke up around 8:30, We got out of the tent ate some breakfast. I had a blueberry muffin and a waffle. Shane had Just a waffle, the waffles were on fleek. Mom got us around 9:00 for me to get ready for camping. I was packing all my close, and help around the house. I asked Dwyane what he needed help with. He told me to make the smoker first then the bikes, And I did just that. Mom was bringing all the stuff that cont fit in the truck. While Dwayne, mom, and I were working to get everything done Quentin was working at Daredevil Delie, than going flying before going camping. Bri was not doing much like always on her phone 24-7. We just got over to my grandmas because that is where the camper is. Quentin was staying the night at grandma's because he had to work again tomorrow. He was going with my uncle Tuesday night. We were on our way in the morning, Dwayne and I stopped at the liquor store. We went to WAWA and got coffee, I got hazelnut it is so good. When I got there was bark clouds coming our way. All of us were rushing to park the camper and get the stuff out of the truck. While everyone was in the camper I was taking off the bikes, and smoker. It was raining cats and dogs, It was bad, coming down so hard for a while. We finally got a brake of the rain and decided to go on a bike ride around the lake with some friends. I tried to pass Bri on a brig. I fell hard, she fell right on top of me, Bri was sad at first and then laughing. All of us had a good time.
Let start with me telling you about my bicks. Here’s the thing i don’t remember until i was like 4 but that was no fun so let's talk about the fun times that's when i was like 10 and that was a long time ago but i am going to tell you about my dirt bike that thing was so fun and i was on that thing all the time it was a little 50cc dirt bike it was tiny and i had some power to it so it was really fun to ride on and my dad had a 120cc which is hueg like that thing was so fast my brother was hesitant to ride it if you dumped the clutch you go flying. My 18 year old butcher had like a 100cc which is still big but not as big as a 120cc but it was still fast. Than my friend detry the rim on my bike and never fixed it so my bike just sat for years. I just did not have the money to fix it so i sold it but befor this my brother and my dad sold there bicks and me had a dumb bugge the bugge was so fun to drive i have drove it my feet t\did not reach the pedals. But me but some many different thing on the buggy we put head lights and to power the headlights we put a 12v battery on it and it worked my brother drove thing thing into i tree and he was not going fast so it was ok it still worked no scratches so that was good. Back to when we sold the bikes we sold the buggy at the same time too so we pretty much sold everything but we still had my dirtbike and it was small but like i said it was fast for a little thing i had a lot of fun i dumped it so many times i bert myself like 2 times on the muffler. Like it get burning hot like sometimes red hot so if your leg hit that i hearts so you what to make sure that doesn't happen.
MY FIRST SURGERY!
I woke up with a horrible headache, and i took some medicine for that until i remembered that today was my first surgery which made my headache went jurassic, it was miserable. We got in the car to ride to the hospital so i can get this horrible tumor out of the side of my back. WE stopped at a dunkin donuts for some coffee and some breakfast, it was a long wait because there was like 8 other people in the dunkin donuts… We finally got to the car with our coffee and breakfast, we got back on the highway, the hospital was so far away that i almost fell asleep. We finally got to the hospital with a coffee in my hand, we rushed to the waiting room, it was full with wheelchairs and injured people. The nurse called us for my surgery time. I was terrified with fear and horror i thought to myself i might not make it but i will never give up. I woke up randomly in my hospital bet all fixed up but with still that pain in my head. The nurse told me i was ready to go so i got my cloths on and we rushed to the check out to check me out which took a solid 10 minutes, it was misery we got to the car to drive back home until i had to get wheelchaired out of the hospital and lifted in the car. At Least i survived my first surgery!
