On June 21, 1999, a new baby was born at North Shore Hospital. Well, I am sure a lot of babies were born that day, but I am talking about the baby that was born at 4:37 a. m. Andie Brooke Shapiro was the name that my mom, Pam, and my dad, Larry gave to me. Two years later, they had the pleasure of adding another member to my family. One chaotic child wasn’t enough for them, so on July 25, 2001, they had my brother Alex. From the ages 1-5 we lived in Livingston, New Jersey, but my parents decided that we were moving.Order now
Hello Coman Hill! All of the kids knew each other for the most part from Pre-K, but i made friends pretty easily. As years and years went by, my brother and I got older and more mature. Well, not really my brother because he still acts babyish. Anyway, our most recent vacation was to Nicaragua. We saw monkeys swinging on trees and all sorts of wildlife. Some parts of the trip were gross and full of bugs, but overall it was a pretty cool trip. As a kid, I used to play every sport under the sun. You named it and I played it.
But as years starting to pass, I decided I was going to commit to one sport. Tennis. I became dedicated and knew this was the sport I wanted to focus on. As an eighth grader, I was on the Varsity team for the school, which makes this my third year on the team. Every year I live 10 months for 2. In case you don’t know what I am saying, it means that I wait 10 months in Armonk to go to my favorite place on earth for only 2 months. Camp Starlight is my special place. I have way over 500 words that describe what camp means to me.
There is one word though that can sum up how I feel about camp. Home. That is what camp is and it is why I wait 10 long months every year. I remember four years ago I came home from a soccer practice with a surprise waiting for me at my house. It wasn’t wrapped in wrapping paper, it wasn’t an object, and it didn’t have a bow sitting on the box. It was running around my front yard and peeing on the lawn. Screaming, I jumped out of the car to go pet her. The chocolate brown labradoodle was ours. Marley Shapiro became her name and every since she has been a best friend to me.
Four years later, my family decided that we needed another dog because of how much we loved Marley. In April 2014, we got a new puppy! Scarlett was the name we gave to our new family member. There are probably a lot of things you don’t know about me because we just met, but one that is interesting is that I am a vegan. I became vegetarian at the age of five when I found a vein in my hamburger. Bye-bye meat and fish. I still ate eggs and dairy at that time, but then a few years later I ditched the eggs when I saw two yolks come out of one shell.
Dairy didn’t bother me because you didn’t have to hurt animals to get the products. When I went on my Nicaragua trip, my dad and brother milked cows in front of me which totally grossed me out. That is where my veganism kicked in. Ever since I don’t eat meat, fish, eggs, or dairy. I don’t know how i do it, but i manage as best as I can. As many words I can type about camp, there are triple that amount of words for one person in my life. He is someone I look up to, stare at in my free time, doodle his name on my notebooks, tweet about him, and imagine our wedding together.
Justin Drew Bieber is who I am talking about. I don’t think there is a time during the day where i don’t think about him. Ask me a question about him and I will know the answer. I think I have the biggest obsession in our whole school. My friends and family make fun of me and say, “How can you like that tattoo covered boy? “ I have learned just to not answer. I am going to stop there on my Bieber Fever problems because I will go on and on. All I have to say left is that you, Mr. Hubbs, are invited to the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Bieber.
