One Main Trait Paragraph

(NOTE: The following paragraph has been rewritten due to losing the original in computer form)

A main trait I would use to describe me is kind. First off, I’m nice to everyone I know such as my friends and family, and respect others most of the time. I wouldn’t be me, if I wasn’t like that. In addition, I’ve helped many people on quite a few occasions, such as basic things like holding a door open or picking up something that fell. I try to help when ever I can (well, if it’s something I want to help on and usually it is). All of these reasons and more are why give myself the trait of being kind.

Outside Reading

One thing I've read recently is a review for the upcoming game "Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood" in Nintendo Power. Like most game reviews, it showed the good points like moves, dialogue and the feature of rasing Chao (little pet-like creatures that appeared in earlier Sonic games), without forgetting the bad points like the battle system's repetition. The rating it got, however, makes sure it'll be an awesome game when it comes out and I also learned a bit more about the game.

Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic X (Archie Comics)

My favorite books are the "Sonic the Hedgehog" and "Sonic X" comics made by Archie Comics (the same people behind the "Archie" and "Betty & Veronica" comics). Starting off with the regular Sonic comic, it's a huge departure from the video games' plots, especially in most of its beginning issues. It's mainly based off a cartoon called "Sonic the Hedgehog" (known to fans as SatAM (short for Saturday AM, when the show aired back in 1993)), but has mixed other Sonic continuties in as well, such as the video games and other Sonic cartoon series like "Sonic Underground". It's a bit darker than some of the games and other media Sonic's been in, similar to SatAM. Sonic X, on the other hand, is more slapstick, which I like. It's based off the anime of the same name, but has referenced the games on more than one occasion, such as a story where Sonic and friends are trapped in the original "Sonic the Hedgehog" video game (on the Sega Genesis). Despite it being light-hearted, as apposed to STH's (Sonic the Hedgehog (comic)) darker tone, both have the same type of action and adventure one would expect from anything from the Sonic franchise. Both comics are terifficly written and I have been collecting them since STH #127 (Sonic X came later).

Drew - Hall of Fame

This award honors Drew P., who graduated from E.H.S. 50 years ago in 2011. Since then, he became an actor and a comedian, getting critical acclaim on his show “Midnight Drew” that began on NBC in 2023. When he is not performing, he spends time with his wife and sometimes visits his kids. He has also donated proceeds of live performances to different organizations for children in need. Drew has also voice acted in a few shows, due to his different range of voices (a specialty of his shows), in addition to the show’s popularity. Drew has been known as a hero for quite a few people, not just being a comedian, but for making people smile and his charming personality, which has made working with him in high school and beyond, even to this day, delightful.
