My hero or in this case heroS, are most definitely my older brothers. Being the youngest of four boys, I’ve had the blessing of learning from all my brothers mistakes. I’ve learned, how to somewhat handle my money better, what steps to take in college, and how moderate my partying to be both awesome and safe. Not to say that my brothers have failed in these things, but there have definitely been some bad things I’ve avoided thanks to them. They are six and eight years older than me. The middle two are twins.

Since I’m a bit younger than them, I got alot of opportunities they didn’t when I was young, which I feel makes me a better person today. For instance, I got to stay up a bit later than them. My oldest brother used to watch Star Trek (The Next Generation of course) which came on at 9:00pm, my bed time. However I usually could stay up and hang out to watch most episodes, since my bro would fight for me. Also sometimes I would go to bed and wait for my parents to fall asleep before heading back to the game room with the brothers. When I was 14 I went to my first college party, and drank my first drink, which I think was a wine cooler HAHA. I suppose I got away with a lot from my parents. You may think this made me spoiled, but I assure you the twin brothers saw fit to keep me humble. If you’ve seen the movie 300, you may remember how they take the kids and train them at a young age in Sparta. That was my house. It didn’t matter what I was doing, or if I wanted to or not, my brothers would take me and “train me” wrestling moves all the time. If it wasn’t that, it was working out, or they’d just fuck with me to satisfy their older brother syndrome. Even though I resented them at times for it when I was younger, it forged me into a State Champion wrestler, and kept me in shape throughout my childhood.

My oldest brother and the twins have quite different interests. This I feel helped make me a well rounded person. Me and my oldest brother were all about the video games and anime when I was little. We spent so much time watching Dragon Ball Z it was disgusting, but also some of best times in my youth. We always nerd out together on new games and such. The twins were both very athletic and artistic. They showed me how to draw a typical buff guy when I was little which started me on the path for the rest of my life. With out them, who knows if I would have ever started drawing. Other than this, all my brothers gave me tons of advice on girls and friends, as well as how to dress, and basically be a badass like them. We all love to make funny short films which gives us all a very similar sense of humor. I’m so blessed to have such awesome older brothers, that helped raise me to be who I am today. Our relationship is like none other that I have, and they’ll always be my heroes.
