My Favorite TV Series

My favorite TV series is Grey's Anatomy. Grey's Anatomy is an American drama series. It is about a group of doctors who work in a hospital in Seattle and they begin their careers as interns. I like to watch Grey's Anatomy because it is interesting and I like the actors. It has made me laugh, cry, and smile a lot. Sometimes it makes me laugh, cry, and smile all in one episode. There are a total of twelve seasons on Netflix and season thirteen is currently going on now. I have watched all twelve seasons and I watch every new episode of season thirteen on Thursday nights. My favorites in Grey's Anatomy are Meredith Grey and Alex Karev. They share such a loving friendship and are always there for each other. They look out for one another and always try to lead each other in the right direction. There have been episodes where I catch myself shaking and crying at the same time because of what is happening. When I first started to watch it, I remember not liking it very much. I kept on watching and the more I watched, the more I got into it and now I can't stop watching. It is such a good series and the characters in it make it way better. There have been times where I don't like my favorites or even the other characters, but it always gets better. The acting is incredibly good. I have gotten to the point where the characters problems become my problems. Therefore when anything happens, it hits me hard and I feel touched. I highly recommend this series, it is definitely worth watching. I have attached a trailer of Grey's Anatomy below!

My favorite music

I enjoy listening to music a lot. I listen to music in the morning, during the day, before my games, and I even fall asleep to music. I could go on forever telling you about my favorite artists, but I'll just tell you about the ones I enjoy most. I like Justin Bieber, Drake, Thomas Rhett, Selena Gomez, and Alicia Keys. I listen to Justin Bieber and Drake before my games. I listen to the other artists during the day or before I go to bed. I enjoy listening to all of Justin Biebers songs, but the one below is one of my favorites. I like all of these artists because their music is inspiring and it makes me feel better when I need it most.

Culture and Place

My culture is one of a kind and there are many things I love about it. My culture is often known as the Mexican culture and I don't blame people because I don't see much wrong with that. Although not all Mexicans share the same culture. There are many things we celebrate, that others do not. For example, my family throws a really big party whenever a young girl turns three years old, why? I am not sure why, but it is something that we do and there are times when it doesn't always happen. Also, another thing we celebrate are quinceaneras. I had my quinceanera last summer and it was a lot of fun. Quinceaneras are a big celebration for young women who turn fifteen. In my culture, as Christmas gets closer, we start having posadas. Posadas happen everyday about a week in a half before Christmas when it's dark out because we walk Virgen Mary and St. Joseph around and people are following with candles. When we get to a certain point, we sing and ask for people to let us in their house, just like Virgen Mary and Joseph did. After we do our prayer, we eat and play music. We also break pinatas, but on Christmas Eve we have the same celebration, only this time it's a lot bigger.  These are not the only things we do, there are a lot more but I will be doing on for days. Our food is definitely one of my favorite things about my culture. These are some of my favorites and I'm glad I was able to share.

I love my culture and all the other things we do. If there is anything at all that I could change, it would be that more people come together and celebrate with us. There are many many people that show up to our celebrations, but there are times that they do it only when it is convenient for them. If only people would show up and we could spread our culture more, any celebration would be a great time for everyone, more than they already are. It is nothing but fun and games at times. Especially when you look at those around you as close friends, you create great memories that remain with you for a lifetime. I have had friends come to some celebrations and they had so much fun. My family is very big so I see them at pretty much every celebration. I always have a great time when I am with them, I always seem to laugh to the point where my stomach hurts. I am thankful to have people in my life that bring happiness and positive vibes.

About Me

My name is Kc Cortes and I am fifteen years old. I love to play sports. Such as soccer and basketball, I enjoy playing soccer more than I enjoy to play basketball. I play soccer on my free time and I play for the girls soccer team at my school. I have been playing the beautiful game for ten years now. My favorite women's soccer player is Carli Lloyd, she plays for the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team and for Houston Dash. My favorite men's soccer player is Lionel Messi, he plays for FC Barcelona and Argentina's national team. I have a dog, named Cheerio and about 20 chickens. I have seven sisters and three brothers, I am the youngest out of all.

I am a Chicana, I am fluent in Spanish and English. My parents are from Oaxaca, Mexico, therefore I grew up speaking Spanish. Being able to speak two languages is pretty nice because I have friends that speak both also. This past June, I had my quinceanera and it was so much fun. I had a surprise dance with all of my closest friends, our dance wasn't very easy to learn, but we pulled it off in the end. My parents were very emotional because it was the last quinceanera they were going to have since I am the youngest. All of my sisters had a quinceanera so I am more than sure that my parents were relieved when mine was over. I love to hangout with my friends and spend time with my family. My family is really big and they are very funny, it is always a good time with them.
