My favorite television series

        My favorite television series are The Office (US), Breaking Bad, and South Park. With The Office being more of a comedy while Breaking Bad is a drama. The Office follows the paper company Dunder Mifflin's branch in Scranton, Pennsylvania. It has a good cast led by Steve Carrell and John Krasiniski and others that had success in other shows. The show itself started airing in 2005 on NBC and went until 2013 but I watched it on Netflix where it's available to stream. The show itself is mostly taken place at Dunder Mifflin where their boss Micheal Scott (played by Carrell) does many memorable acts and Scott's best friend Dwight Schrute selling paper and causing mischief. The real emotional part of the story is about paper salesman Jim and receptionist Pam's love story which was pretty obvious from the beginning. It is a great show and I would recommend it to anyone so check it out.                                                      
     Next is Breaking Bad; which is in my opinion one of the best tv shows ever. Breaking Bad is taken place in Albuquerque, New Mexico and shows a high school chemistry teacher Walter White who while on a ride along with his brother-in-law Hank sees first hand that making and selling the narcotic crystal meth could pay and even watches his old student escape. Then White finds out he has cancer and is pressed for money so gets into the business of making and dealing drugs. So of course there are many bumps in the road as he partners with the same student he saw escape because he knows the business. The cast is starred by tv dad Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Throughout the series you see White transform from a squeaky clean teacher to a murderer drug dealer that goes by Heisenburg. It's just a fantastic show although there is a lot of gore and drugs so don't let young kids watch the show but I have never heard of someone not liking it and it's on Netflix so it's even more convenient to watch the series.
     Last but not least is South Park. South Park is an animated series on Comedy Central and has been on since 1997. It mostly focuses on real life issues that they make fun of. There has been 19 series as it's episodes range from the people's need for KFC to American politician Al Gore believing there is such thing as a ManBearPig. South Park is made by Trey Parker and Matt Stone who have made multiple other things together ranging from movies to even a play. The show itself follows the lives of four young boys living in South Park, Colorado where they meet many characters ranging from Tupac's hologram to Mr. Hankey the Christmas poo. South Park is a classic American tv show for kids of my generation and it will continue because they are still making new episodes to this day.
     So those are my three favorite tv shows I highly suggest you watch them sometime and let me know what you think of them!

My favorite music: Dylan McNeill

This post is supposed to be about my favorite music, but I'm not that into music. Like don't get me wrong I don't dislike music by any means, I'm just not super into it. When I do listen to music it is usually either rap or hip hop. As a white kid from a farm town I can't really relate to the lyrics, but it is the norm for my friends so why stand out especially when I don't really care all that much. Another issue with rap is that 99% of it isn't school appropriate so no links. If I'm making it seem like I don't like rap music then that's not the message I'm trying to put across, I do like it, but a lot of it is just loud, raunchy garbage made from people that just want to be viewed as tough rather than actually caring about their music. Stuff from other time periods I enjoy is late 80s to early 90s rap (back when people cared) and I also like Jimi Hendrix shame he died so young but what are you going to do. I also like The Beatles and stuff like that from time to time. I don't think Prince was the greatest musician to me, but he is by far the coolest person I've ever heard of. For rap I of course like popular rappers like Drake, Future, and Kanye West. That's my favorite music I would love to find out what yours is!

                                                                      My Home                                                                                  For the most part I love my home here in Humboldt County. The ocean and Redwood trees within a few hour drive you can a vast variety of climates. That is my favorite part of where I live because it makes me feel like I can experience more. I like America as a whole as well because I can do most things. It's also soothing to live in a small town which I do where I know most people it makes the whole town. Which for some reason makes me feel safer.That is what I like about where I live.                    Now for the part for what I do not like about where I live. Like I said earlier I enjoy most of the things here, but if I had to complain about something it would be the racism.Yes it has gotten a ton better from 100 years ago but, it still feels that we are seperated there is a certain angst between everyone. I hope some day there will not be that feeling. I also think it is silly how much things cost for simple things. Even water can be charged up to like $6 at ballgames and that I think is absurd. There is many places where racism doesn't exist and water is free so it is good that it isn't everywhere. Those are the two things I don't care for in my society. Thank you!

I live in a town called Loleta about 15 minutes away from the Fortuna high school.My favorite sport is baseball, I mostly just crush home runs. In my down time I like to take naps and play sports video games. I love my 3 dogs the one shown is named Falcor the image was too small so they put it three times. My email is dymcneill@fuhsdistrict.net feel free to email me if you have any questions about me or Falcor. I have been feeling sad ever since the death of my favorite gorilla, Harambe was shot dead in the Cincinnati Zoo. I am 15 years old and lived in Humboldt county my entire life. When I grow up I want to be President of the United States. I'm not sure about how the meme situation is in Morocco, but if you haven't heard memes are fantastic so I suggest you check it out!
