My Favorite Series

My favorite television series produced is Grey's Anatomy. Grey's Anatomy is an ABC drama series about a group of doctors and surgeons working at Grey-Sloan Memorial hospital, a teaching hospital. The show showcases the lives of surgeons in the hospital as well as captures their lives outside of work. The series begins as the main character, Meredith Grey, starts her internship in Seattle at Grey-Sloan. Meredith has many family ties to the hospital and throughout the series, she gains many more. As the series plays out, we are introduced to a vast variety of characters,  many who begin as an intern to learn from the other surgeons. This TV series captures the drama and chaos that surgeons work through on a daily basis.

Grey's Anatomy has 12 seasons on Netflix and the 13th season is currently being streamed weekly on TV.   Throughout the series many of the main characters remain in the show, but occasionally the Surgeons move to other hospitals or pass away from a catastrophic event. There is a lot of tragedy that takes place over the course of the show as we learn about the death of many patients and even the death of loved characters.

I have been watching Grey's Anatomy for about a year. I watch approximately 3 episodes per week. I usually watch this show before I go to bed or on the weekends. I enjoy washing this show because there is always something new going on at the hospital. There is always a new patient the surgeons are working on and new drama playing out between the characters. Each character at the hospital as a distinct personality and creates diffenrt relationship with the others that work there. I would defiantly recommend watching this series. Even though there are many seasons, it is defiantly worth it.

Here is a link to the Trailer of Grey's Anatomy.

My Favorite Music

My favorite artists are Sam Hunt, Carrie Underwood, and Kenny Chesney and Taylor swift. I saw Sam Hunt this summer and I really enjoyed his concert. If I could see any other artist, I would chose Carrie Underwood or Taylor swift because I really enjoy their music and have been listening to it for many years..  Some of my favorite songs are "American Kids" by Kenny Chesney and "Single for the summer" by Sam Hunt. I like to listen to country music when I am driving and with my friends who also enjoy county music. I pick to listen to country music quite frequently because I know many songs that our country radio station plays.
Another type of music I like to listen to is pop/Rap music. I like to listen to this genre of music with my sister and most of my friends. During the summer when I'm at the lake, I prefer to listen to pop music while I'm on the boat and swimming in the lake. Some of my favorite Pop artists include Drake, Beyonc√©, Rihanna, Imagine Dragons, and twenty one pilots. My favorite song right now is "Legend" and "Energy" by Drake and "Daddy Lessons" written by Beyonc√©. I choose to listen to pop music quite frequently. While I am doing homework or in the shower I like to listen to this genre.

My Home and Culture

I have lived in Humboldt County my whole life and I can not image living anywhere else. Humboldt is a beautiful place to live. I love living so close to the ocean, and in the middle of the Redwood forest. I really enjoy living in such a small town because I know so many of the people here. Our high school is relatively small compared to high schools in highly populated towns, so I know lots of the kids at our school. Our community sponsors and puts on lots of fun activities for everyone to participate in. Throughout the year we have different events such as apple harvest, which is centered around a local business, Clendeden's Cider Works, AutoExop, Rodeo week and many more.  My favorite event is Rodeo. I like watching the rodeo and going to the carnival with my friends. We live in a very strong and supporting community. The businesses and people in Fortuna always support each other and make living here very enjoyable.

If I could change anything about where I live I would like to change the stereotypes people have about many people who live in Humboldt. Many people who haven't been to Humboldt, particularity Fortuna, have an assumption that everyone here grows Marijuana to make money. Yes, Humboldt is known for its cannabis, but most of our population is not involved with it and have other steady jobs and sources of income. I have been living in Fortuna, CA for 15 years now and have seen the transition between our county attracting people for the beautiful redwoods to Humboldt attracting people for Marijuana. Many people from out of the area assume that the best from income here to is grow cannabis, but there are thousands of people who counter those expectations. I wish that people would stop thinking of me and other individuals as cannabis growers simply because of where we were born and raised. Every town, city, county, and country will have stereotypes against, but I think we should try to make them positive, not just in Fortuna but everywhere. I think that as time goes by, we are going to alter the stereotype and I hope our county can take back its beautiful reputation and not have illegal drugs attached to it.

About Me

My name is Katherine Carroll and I am 15 years old. I attend Fortuna High School and am a sophomore. I have one sister and she is a freshmen. I live with my dad, mom, sister, and my cats and my dog Maggie. At our school I enjoy participating in volleyball, basketball and track and field. I have been playing basketball sense I was in first grade and have been playing volleyball sense I was in 5th grade.  I am in our school's leadership class and I am my classes vice president. In our leadership class we put on many activities such as dances, rallies, homecoming, and dress up days.

 One of my favorite things to do out of school, is spend time at the lake with my cousins and friends. During the winter months, I like to go snowboarding with my dad. I also like spending tine with my friends and going to our school's basketball and Football (American) games. I love watching Disney movies, and my favorite is High School Musical which I first saw when I was in 2nd grade. I love listening to music and I recently went and saw Kenny Chesney and Sam Hunt with some of my best friends. This weekend I am also going to see Drake and Future in San Jose, CA.

 My favorite traveling destination is Hawaii. I love spending everyday on the beach in the hot weather. If I could travel anywhere, I would choose to visit Australia. I think it would be very fascinating to see all of the Australian animals that live there. This year I have the opportunity to travel to Spain. Our school has travel club that is going to bring students if they are interested. I think it would be great to experience a different culture where they speak a different language than I do. I have been taking Spanish for two years and plan to take it throughout high school so I can become as fluent as I can. I think it is very important to learn another language because it opens up your options vastly for jobs after college.
