Favorite Class I love all my classes, since I like learning. Delarosa in math. Vasquez in humanities and Dr. Thomas in social sciences all impacted me.
To Relax Curling up with a very good book. Traveling, even though I don’t own a vehicle, I’ve done quite a bit of sightseeing around Florida on the bus.
Movie Lord of the Rings trilogy, because it’s about determination. Along the way, when it seems like it’s not going to happen, people step in and help.
Book The Bible
Music I love instrumentals—gospel or contemporary, Mozart and Beethoven.
Pizza Not a big pizza lover, but once in a while I’ll have a personal pan with ground beef, pineapple, mushrooms, green peppers and tomatoes.
Pet I would like to get a dog when I have the space and time, but not right now.
Web site I’m not a big surfer, but Yahoo.com has my email.
Keep in touch I call each of my four children in Trinidad on their special day of the week. I’m looking forward to having them visit during Christmas break.
