I am blogging about surfing and why I feel that it is an important thing in my life. I personally love to be in the water. It is the time that I feel most at home and most comfortable with my surroundings. The ocean is our single biggest and most reliable and natural resource. We need to take care of our ocean and always clean our beaches. The single most best and engaging feeling that i have ever experienced is being inside of a head high barrel and riding it out for as long as you can. By the end of a good wave you will know that you killed it because your legs will be burning by the end of that ride. Getting bowled is the best feeling because it is like a different escape to another world. When your in there nothing else matters you escape from reality and all in all you just feel great about yourself after making it through a head high shacking wave.

-----This is my first day in blogging class. I am going to write about graffiti because there is not any other topics that interest me at the moment. I like graffiti. Its a modern style of art. Most people hear the word graffiti and assume that its bad. Graffiti is a way of self expression. I find that graffiti is a style of art. Most people think of graffiti as vandalizing and destroying certain walls, places, and such. That is just how graffiti originated. It started in the streets, used to claim territory. Because it was started off as claiming territory, most citizens of the US think that all graffiti is gang related. The art style of graffiti has come a long way since that time. Murals are created every where, formed by cliques, or also known as crews. My personal opinion is that graffiti is important to the world, because it is the best way to self express and get your name out there. Graffiti is almost like a real life game. Your ranked as to how good you are, and as to how much you get your name out there. Toys being the lowest level, gaining NO respect. Rookies are considered beginners. Class A refers to the standard regular artistic graffiti writers. Next ranked class is known as legends. These are the guys that have been in the game for more then 30 years. They have much experience and have been around for a while. Lastly, Kings are ranked the highest. These are basically the founders of street art, and graffiti. They are known world wide and are some of the best in the world.
