I’m from the gray ranch house at the end of the dead-end with the basketball hoop and the swing set that the whole neighborhood used to hang out in. The kind where we would all bring our favorite snack and we would all eat them while talking about that type of games we liked to play.
I’m from a technology based home, the kind with a TV and a computer in every room. I grew up with technology engulfing me.
I’m from Disney World with my family, going on rides and swimming in the pools. Taking pictures with the characters. Watching the fireworks in awe, wondering where they are launching from.
I’m from watching baseball games at Citi field, cheering on the players, trying to catch a foul ball or a home run. Hoping they would toss you a ball on their way into the dugout.
I’m from movie watching with my family at the theaters, sitting on the edge of your seat not knowing the shock the next scene will bring you. All of us trying to predict the ending, for some reason trying to act as if you already know what’s going to happen.
I’m that gray ranch-living, basketball-playing, technology-loving, Disney World-going, baseball-watching and cheering, movie-loving type of kid.
That’s where I’m from.
