The Life of Ry

Hello. My name is Ryan Crowley. I was born on August 30th, 2000. Throughout my life, I have always been interested in the military. When I was younger, me and my friends would dress up in camo and go from backyard to backyard pretending to be on a “special mission”. And now, many years later, this interest still exists. I am currently in the NJROTC program through PHS, which offers many great, eye-opening opportunities that involve the military. But, this does not mean that I am for sure going to enlist, although it is most definitely an option after college.

The song I chose was With Arms Wide Open by Creed. This song is special to me because every Saturday night, my friends Trevor, Kaleb, Andrew, and I would all hang out and have a bonfire or something. Andrew would drive us all home when it got late because he was 18 and has a car. Every time when we were driving home we would always blast this song in the car and sing along to it at 11:45 or sometime really late. It was the best feeling ever. But, Andrew just recently went away to college, so our squad has been broken up, and no more Saturday night jam-outs.

At 9:00 p.m. on Friday, I was at home watching a movie with my dog, Aspen.

One person that inspires me is Matthew McConaughey. I aspire as suave In life as him in a Lincoln MKZ commercial.

Also, another two people that inspire me are my mom and dad. My mom is just great at making everyone feel comfortable and happy when they are around her, and my dad can fix any problem. He never gets frustrated and always gets through problems with ease.

My only dream is to go to space, and colonize Mars. If I could choose any job in the world it would be an astronaut because I would be doing something beneficial for the world, and also something that I love.

One perception of life in America that I have is this it is very technology-based. Everywhere you look, someone is either on there phone, has earbuds in, or doing some other form of technological activity. Even learning has been turned into computers and tablets galore.

Another perception of life in America that I have is that there is much violence. Every single time I turn on the news, there is a new story about someone getting shot in the city, or at a school.

A final perception of life in America that I have is that it is a very hostile environment in the sense that everyone usually cares about themselves, and they think that the world revolves around them. Most people don’t take into account that there are other people who have necessities as well.
