My Car Addiction “Okay, here we go. Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, forty-two losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast? Maybe I should have had breakfast? Brekkie could be good for me.

What started it? There’s a complex story behind it. I started to draw cars around kindergarten. However, the cars were... well... “primitive,” as they were very squiggly, with unnecessary high hills and curves. There was no detail.

I actually managed to draw more than 15 3-D cars in the back of my notebook in a nice scene. As time went on, I could make 3-D cars with more designs and shapes. Now, in 7th and 8th grade, I can make nice scenes with more perspective (like drawing how it looks like seeing a car from a higher place). I also have the ability to make not just simple decals (“visual stickers” what you see on cars such as in the movie, “The Fast and The Furious.”) on the sides; I can make large “visual stickers”. This way, the cars look better. I can also able to improve 3-D objects, such as the tire shape. However, what really started this addiction, and eventually the drawings was when I received a racing game, “Need for Speed: Most Wanted 5-1-0,” for my 5th or 6th birthday. It was the first racing game I ever had.
