The chapter that most stood out to me was Laughter. This was a very short one and I just enjoyed because it was short and sweet. Also I really relate to the actual laughing part because I think I do have a really annoying and loud laugh. It kind of takes a lot for me to actually laugh but when I do sometimes I get told about my obnoxious laugh. Also in this chapter I like how she said, "One day we were passing a house that looked, in my mind like houses I had seen in Mexico. I don't know why. There was nothing about the house that looked exactly like the houses I remembered." To me this is really kind of random and I feel like it is something that I would either say or that I would think to myself. You just look at something and you attribute something to it just because it looks fitting to you.
I think the biggest influence when I was young was my friend Drew. He was my first real friend I had and me and him did everything together and he really influenced me in a lot of ways. First off, he got me back into football. I quit football after my first year of playing it and took a year off but then I became friends with Drew he got me into another league when we were in the fifth grade and I really fell in love with football at that point and I haven't stopped following it since. Also he got me to start really going to church, we went every Sunday and sometimes on Wednesdays and he really taught me that it could be fun.
