I love to read I don’t have a favorite book or author I just enjoy reading a book that caught my attention at that moment. I really enjoy playing video games with my brother and my boyfriend even though I am so bad but I have fun. I like to watch TV actually me and my mom watch TV together while we paint or rest or I do my homework. We watch novels, I know it’s not educational to watch The Simpson and Sponge Bob but I like it also watch all Disney movies.
