“With all the responsibilities and requirements of being a student it is nice to have a break every now and then and spending your free time doing what you enjoy. For one thing I enjoy reading when I’m home because it is a good way to pass the time. and I writing if I’m at school because writing let’s me be creative after a bunch of school work and it’s a good stress relief. I also like playing “Yu-Gi-Oh!” with my friends and video games as well. I mostly like classic games like “Super Mario Bros.,” and “Mega Man,” and “Pac Man.” Those classics are what I like. When on campus I like to hang out at ASB (Auxiliary Services Benefits) Building to meet up with other people. And when I’m off campus I like to hang out at “Murillo Digital System,” to be with others who share my hobbies. When I’m writing I like to hang out at “Starbucks,” because it’s nice and quiet and away from it all. On school day’s  I’m not working I usually get about five hours of free time.The internet can be distracting but spending time with people is time well spent.”
