We also learn that Mr. Taylor trusts his clinic and they help improve his health care experience. A nurse who was assigned to him took one hundred percent care of him. She gave full attention to him and kept his mind away from the pain and got to know him personally. Thus this indepth communications and care is a great facilitator.
From the time I was born I have been surrounded by sports. My dad tells me that while my mother was giving birth he was watching the Major League Baseball all star game and she made him turn it off. My middle name is Brenden, named after the now retired hall-of-famer, left wing, Brendan Shanahan. I can remember being in love with sports for all my life. For birthday parties when I was younger I would have all of my friends come over and we would play pick up baseball games. For about three or four years in a row my mom would take me to the Whitecaps game for my birthday. Baseball was not the only sport that I loved to play or watch however. When I was around middle school age, my dad would take me with him to my uncles so that I could help him with his fantasy football drafts. When we had giant family reunions all the men ever talked about was sports and their favorite players or coaches. I attempted to stay included in everyone of those conversations. This led me to start collecting and observing statistics for lots of different sports. I ranged from watching documentaries on the best
What I noticed when I watched the Seahawks two games against the Bengals, and the Panthers were that the opposing teams must have found a weakness in the Seahawks defense through film of their inability to cover good tight ends. Against the Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert had eight receptions 90 yards two touchdowns. Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had seven catches 131 yards one touchdown which was the game winning touchdown that beat the Seahawks couple weeks ago. What the Bengals, and Panthers seemed to do was throw at strong side safety Kam Chancellor who's not really known to for his coverage skills. These tight ends were able to run good crisp routes that put Chancellor in bad positions to be able to cover them.
It happened September 22, 2011. It was during seventh period athletics. No one can ever plan for something like this and others never think of it. My life was changed that day, I didn’t know it then, but now that I do I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Everyone has an experience that forces them to open their eyes, exit childhood and enter adulthood. For some people this experience is one they relish, for some people this experience is one they do not always care to think about, but for everyone this experience is one they can never forget. When I was twelve years old my life turned upside down. My parents had just decided to terminate their marriage and before I knew it our family was also in financial turmoil. I was absolutely devastated. My life, the life I thought to be so ideal, was shattered.
From a very young age, I knew I was strange. I didn’t enjoy playing or being around kids my age, I would read constantly and do my homework as soon as I got home, and I was extremely intuitive. This made growing up in a home with an older brother and three, sometimes four, day care kids an unpleasant chore. I always had to share my toys or tend to other children’s needs. However, when I did get free-time, I would create anything and everything I could imagine.
At my high school there existed an elite group of athletes that was brave, foolish, and above all else a family. This is my distance running community. We suffered for four long years together, and made memories that forged us into a team. We were connected by not only the common struggle and love-hate relationship with our sport, but by a language that was used within our close-knit group, and shared common goals.
I am a failure is all I could think. To say that my education was spiraling out of control would be an understatement. Efforts were not focused on improving myself through knowledge, and I certainly paid no attention to the subordination to my pedagogical superiors. My grades were suffering, I gave no prudence to my future, and whatever energy I had left after my tomfoolery was concentrated to embellishing a facade of aplomb. But, I am not here to brood over my past mistakes and failures; I am here to enlighten them, illuminating my transformation from a distracted child to a self-driven young adult.
All writing comprises three things: words, sentences and paragraphs. If you know a few words, you can make a sentence. If you write a few sentences you can make a paragraph. Keep it simple. In the end, emails, blogs, books and novels are all made from the same substances. As long as you plan time to revise later, putting words down is easy.
On, October 16, 2000 I was born and I was a big baby. When I was a little kid I lived in Mexico. At the age of four I moved to the U.S. I have lived in Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. My favorite place of all has been North Carolina. While I was living in Tennessee at the age of about four and a half I met a kid named Kevin and he has been my best friend ever since. I moved to North Carolina at the age of ten. There I made a new friend named Miguel we have so many things in common we both like the same genre of music, we both like to Dj, skate, say weird things, be lazy, and many other things. Whenever I go to North Carolina I go and hang out with him.
Everywhere I looked there were crying ten-year-olds. Boy, was I panicked. Year after year, I had grown accustomed to my daily routine as an overnight camper. However, this summer was different. I was back where I began my first summer eight years earlier in Cabin 2. It was the first night. I was in charge and did not know the first thing about being a counselor.
On January 6, 2006, the police were called to my house in Cortlandt Manor, NY. My paranoid schizophrenic father was out of control and we were in danger. My mother, grandmother, sister and I needed to go. We moved 100 miles away to our Sag Harbor house. Life was, to say the least, distracting. Through abusive visitations, and always being wound up in the drama, I found myself needing to find my niche, my passion; something I could dedicate myself to. I discovered photography and golf to be two of my favorite things.
I discovered my place in January of 2015. I was competing in a boys twelve and under single gender Junior Team Tennis tournament. It took place in an indoor tennis facility called Folkes/Stevens tennis center in Old Dominion University. I was representing Green Spring Racket Club of Maryland for sectionals, playing against the rest of the Mid-Atlantic region. Once I step on the court, I realized I have found what truly makes me happy. This was going to be my special place. I met up with my friends at the tennis courts to practice, when there is no pressure its all fun and games. Game time; however, is something different, time to be serious. I feel relaxed and I can have fun while being competitive on the courts. I keep my eye on the ball while
I have always been driven by competition, my will against that of my opponent my work ethic against his. Competition is the basis of who I am and failure does not come naturally to me. I refuse to back down in the face of a challenge, and so when I was asked if I wanted to do wrestling in seventh grade, I accepted just as I had accepted every challenge prior. I knew what I was getting into I knew the hard work that would be required and I knew the toughness of the practice. But nothing had prepared me for the level of competition even at the middle school level, that competition only drove me to push myself more and excel more. I worked myself as hard as I could from seventh grade all the way until junior year. I competed as hard as I could and although I did lose in several
People say I don’t think, well sometimes I think, most times I dream. I dream of things of unimaginable beauty, in colors so indescribably vivid, other’s can only imagine what I see.
