I am Mike. I was born on March 1st in Waterloo. I went to River Hills School. I live in an apartment near Family Video. My favorite colors are blue and red. I live by myself and I really like it – it is a lot better than when I had to live in a group home. My North Star staff is much more laid back and good. I like the staff a lot.
At home I do all of my own cleaning. I dust, vacuum and clean my bedroom and the bathroom. I am not allowed to use the stove, but I can use the microwave for T.V. dinners and stuff. Kim said you can’t cook French fries in the microwave, though. The T.V. dinners I like are spaghetti and the mashed potato, Salisbury steak, with a little corn isn’t too bad. My favorite foods are lasagna and spaghetti – small portions.
I like to relax and drink cold water. I am taking it easy on O.J. and cola. I am watching the sugar – you know, it’s about moderation. I heard that!
At home, I watch T.V. – I am getting better at not walking around and pacing, but actually sit down to watch. I like Law & Order and NCIS.
My staff, Kim, takes me shopping – I don’t go alone. Too dangerous. Kim goes with me for groceries. Kim got me vegetables; I like raw carrots, broccoli, lettuce, cauliflower. I like corn, but there is sugar in corn.
I like to exercise on my bike – I wish that exercise could get rid of the diabetes, but it probably won’t. On Tuesday and Thursday I go to the mall with my friend Todd (it isn’t fair to make him go by himself). We walk around and look at stuff. At the mall, I like these big blankets that they have hanging up with cartoons on them. There is one that is for ladies’ breast cancer – I think a man could buy one too, though. My favorite cartoons are Scooby Doo, but I like the Smurfs and Superman, too.
I like to go to the movies. It really is fun. Comedy is my favorite. It is better than scary – you know that it isn’t real – it is just a movie, but still… Comedy is best.
