I didn’t have a huge variety of the food that I made (due to the fact that I was 13) so most of the time we would eat tuna sandwiches or cereal.…

  • Relationship Between Culture And Me

    Culture and Me I believe that a person who has a little time to live will spend on things that make him or her happy. Each of us has own values, priorities, and experiences as a person so everyone also has different happiness in life. Thus, my peers would not spend their time similarly, including myself.
