Hi, I'm Jacob. I am a freshman at Okemos High School. I spend my free time playing clarinet, running, biking and listening to music. My favorite color is green and my favorite number is 7. I have a little brother who is 11, a dog named Buddy, and two great parents.
5 Self Questions-
-Would I be different if I was raised differently?
-Where will I be after High School?
-How do other people see me?
-Does every little decision you make effect your life?
-What can I amount to?
5 World Questions-
-Is there a God?
-What happens when you die?
-What will the future look like?
-What is the purpose of life?
-Are our lives predetermined?
