I am very proud of many aspects of my culture. I feel that being an American means I am at the center of boundless entertainment. The thing about American culture is, it's a bunch of other cultures all bundled and overlapping into one. In my opinion, our entertainment options are all inspired by other cultures, especially movies. Even the music I listen to is evidently inspired by works from Japan, Great Britain, and many other places. Our food comes from all over the place as well. Heck, I can go into restaurants near me that serve burgers and Chinese food in the same place! Our culture is interesting for sure, I am proud of how diverse it truly is. There really is a place for everyone to find something they enjoy in America.
One thing I would change about my culture is the lack of compassion we share toward one another. I feel as if in our culture, it isn't common to be friendly to anyone. Most of the people I am near never let their guard down, they don't trust each other like I have seen in other cultures. Another characteristic that I see in my culture a lot is entitlement. Most feel that certain things should be theirs simply because they are American. I don't agree with this, and it bothers me tremendously. I believe we should really work hard to get the things we want, that used to be the American dream.

I live in a small town with my parents and younger sister. I love playing basketball, I hope I get the opportunity to play in college. I really like music, I love finding records that nobody else has really heard of. I enjoy making music too, I have a small "side business" where I sell music for people to sing over. I enjoy watching The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross, and making my own art is something I do from time to time. I like playing video games very much, the Metal Gear Solid series is one of my favorite of all time. I love to hunt, my dad and I duck hunt and fish on a regular basis. I really enjoy watching movies too, horror is my favorite genre... Halloween is a great cult classic to check out.
Hopefully you learned a little bit about me.
P.S I've included a song that I'm really into right now, give it a listen.
