My name is Tydon Demetrius Graves, but 'most everyone I know calls me "Bazooka".
I am 15 years old and live with my family in Oak Grove, Illinois.
I live with my parents and two younger brothers. My brothers are named Jaime Diego and Donatello Marquis; they are 11 and 7. I'm the oldest kid, as you can see. It's a pain in my ass, especially when I have to watch over Jaime. You see, he is disabled. He cannot walk and is in a wheelchair. Jaime was born with brain damage.
I love Jaime, don't get me wrong; but he isn't much fun because he can't do anything but just sit there in his wheelchair and drool all over the place. It's really gross!
When I am not at school (or watching my brothers), I like to hang out with my friends, play b-ball (both basketball and baseball), play futbol (soccer), go online on my computer (Facebook, YouTube, and MySpace are my three hangout sites I visit most often), play video games, and write stories. In addition, I like to sing and go to Mass. (We're Catholic.)
I don't like country music (give me rock or rap ANY day of the week!), reading, doing homework (what kid DOES like doing homework? I know I don't!!), having to watch my brothers (especially Jaime!), or cold weather and snow. (Give me hot sunny weather!!)
I don't know how I really ended up with the nickname of "Bazooka", but I think it's 'cause I love Bazooka bubble gum; always have, ever since I was a real little kid barely out of kindergarten.
Well, I guess I'll go. School tomorrow. Just got back from Mass, and I'm tired. It's been a long day. Raked leaves today and brother-sat (Jaime was okay, but I wish he could do more for himself!) and then went to Mass two times (once this morning, and again this evening). Mama likes us to go to Mass; she says that it might keep us out of trouble if we think 'bout what we do or if we think about God. I guess that's a good thing, really! :)
Until later, so long! I will write in here again!
