Hobbies

I love working out and training kickboxing (I've been training for almost 2 years now)! I initially began training for fitness purposes and haven't looked back since then. Huge music enthusiast, I love all music from country music all the way to Hip-Hop. Music is an art that I very much appreciate and couldn't live without. I love assembling things whether I'm building a dog house, or I'm helping my mother put together a dresser for her room, I've always got projects. I sometimes tend to enjoy playing video games. I try not to play as often as I used to, but it helps keep me refreshed and relieved when stressed out. I have 3 cats that I adore and love taking care of. 2 huskies as well that I really enjoy taking care of. Cutting the grass, fixing outlets, replacing freezers or moving furniture, I'm always looking to help out whenever I can to stay busy and gain knowledge in every aspect that I can. At heart I'm a student and I love to learn and expand my knowledge whenever I possibly can do so.
