Since I'm from San Jose,CA I grew up on a certain kind of music. Also, since San Jose is in the Bay Area that's where most of my music taste comes from. I listen to mostly rap and hip pop music. I like to listen to different kinds of rap, for example Bay Area rap from the 1990's and early 2000's is my one of my favorites. I also really enjoy the rap music from now like Drake, French Montana, YG, A$AP Rocky, and lots more others. To be honest my favorite kind of rappers will always be from the Bay Area. My favorite rapper is from the Bay. There's a lot of influence from the Bay Area rappers to the rappers from today. A good example of this is the song For Free by Drake and Dj Khaled, in the beginning of the song the lyrics are "I go on and on...Can't understand how I lasted so long, I must have the superpowers Last 223 thousand hours." This part of the song was originally from a song called "Blow the whistle" by a rapper named Too Short from they Bay.
Even though my heart is always to the Bay music I still like rap from today. Sure a lot of rap from now isn't as good from back then, I still like it. What I mean by that is most rap from now doesn't have lyrics that mean something like the ones back then. Still, there are rappers that make good lyrical songs. Also, there are rappers that make good catchy songs. One rapper, French Montana is also from Morocco. One song I like from him is "No shopping " featuring Drake. (clean version) I recommend you listen to it if you don't mind a little bit of bad words. Okay well hope you enjoyed my thoughts on my favorite kind of music.

My culture has always been a big a part of my life. My mom being born in Mexico and raising me here is somewhat of a struggle. Since my mom speaks Spanish and hasn't learned English it's hard for the both of us because there I are I'd like to tell her something but don't know how to explain it. My mom prefers my sister and I speaking Spanish in the house but we mostly speak English to each other. It's really disappointing that I'm actually not good with speaking Spanish because I'm so used to speaking English all the time and I even speak English to my mom. There are times when I just can't say what I want to say in Spanish so I just say it English. Then again it's okay because it also helps my mom learn a lot more English because she's very good at understanding it. I'm proud to be Mexican though and to do all the things I can. I'm happy that Spanish is my first language(even though I'm not good) and speaking two languages in general.
Hi, my name is Carolina and I'm 15 years old. I was born in San Jose, California on February 9th, 2001. I lived there for most of my life until a year ago. A year ago my mom decided she wanted to move is to Humboldt after we had visited my aunt for her birthday. It was hard moving here and leaving my friends that's I've known all my life. Coming here was also hard because my sister and I didn't know the area and didn't know what we could do for fun. Out in San Jose there was a lot of things to keep us busy. We were also really disappointed to see that a lot of the things that are out there weren't here like stores and such. Then again I'm really happy to know the people that I've met here. Also, really happy that my mom enjoys living here and being closer to her sister.
