Hi all. My name is Jordan Dunlea. I am 19 years old, and was born and raised in Dublin, Ohio. My fun fact is that I am a current student at Ohio State University. That's fun right? I chose OSU because both of my parents work for OSU so I get a discount, I also live near campus so it is convenient. I grew up playing a lot of sports and had demanding parents that made me train 24/7 but I believe this has benefited my work ethic. When I have time, I enjoy hanging out with friends on campus or visiting with my large family. I work at Art.com in a warehouse where I build canvases then ship them to the customers.
My poem was about my friend Nate. He can be a pain at times but I spend so much time with him that it would be hard for him not to be my best friend, despite the fact that we sometimes want to kill one another. Since he was the obvious choice for my poem topic I just had to pick what to write about him. I found myself reviewing many of the memories we shared and he actually helped a little with some of the lines. I found it challenging to find words to describe him because it's not something that I consider often. I believe the poem turned out okay but the organization was sloppy and it possessed very little focus in terms of writing style. I expected this because of all the writing styles poetry is probably my weakest point.
