I first wrote about Grant last year on his birthday in this post. This year I'm posting an interview that I conducted with Grant via email and, as usual, the pictures may or may not have anything to do with the questions above them.
You're going to be seventeen tomorrow. Are you excited about that? Heck, yeah! I'll be able to buy rated M games and see rated R movies without cheating. lol
Do you have any special plans for your birthday and are you hoping for anything special gift-wise? Nope, I want to be lazy. And we're getting a backbag thing at Dick's Sporting Goods later.
You're the third oldest among 19 cousins. Do you enjoy being part of such a large family? And, is there a cousin you're closest to? Yeah, I like bragging to people about the family, plus it's great to see so many people all in one place at Christmas.
I'm probably closest to Ryan
They're closest agewise to me. Amber's too old ;) (Don't worry, Grant. I won't tell Amber you said that.)
Do you have certain chores or responsibilities around the house? I'm in charge of the two cats, I clean the basement once or twice a week, and I do yardwork.
What do you do for fun and relaxation? I drill my heart out.
(I should have video taped him in action. The still pictures just don't do him justice.)
Are you looking forward to your Senior year of high school? Yes and no. Yes, because I'll be on top and I've got a few thing planned; and no because I just realized it's my last year of high school....
What are your favorite subjects and why? I like Psychology and Business because both have excellent teachers and I'm interested in both. Math's good too.
And your least favorite subject? English. I can't analyze books to save my life.
What sports or extracurricular activities do you participate in? I played football for a couple of years, I golf, and I drill and do drill team in the Winter and Spring.
If you had to decide right now what career path you'll follow someday, what would it be? Probably a Psychologist because it's interesting to me and pays well.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? I see myself being 27 and I kinda want to be married before that, if that helps.
Are you single or 'with someone' right now? I was with someone a couple of weeks ago, but that ended so now I'm single-ish.
What can you tell us about yourself that I haven't covered in this interview? I like to play Xbox 360 and Empire Earth I & II with friends. I like watching Netflix, sleeping, eating, rapping like a gansta, and I'm seriously glad the NFL lockout is finally over.
(This is as close as I could come to a gangsta picture. It works right?)
There are a couple more things I could tell about Grant that I think are very interesting. First of all, he's a wonderful big brother.
And a wonderful son.
