“You 're still apart of the team, and you can still learn from watching” I was furious, maybe because I thought it would just be torture to watch my team while I sat, or maybe because I was just lazy. Whatever the reason, I protested going to practice everyday. Until another girl on my team got hurt, and she didn 't show up for practice. It really made me think about the purpose of me coming to practice, even if I just watched. Coming to practice shows my team that I care, and as soon as I get my cast off Iĺl be right up to speed with the rest of them.
The first time I felt a connection while I was reading this book was when the author was talking about the genders and how it can affect the athlete and the sports environment and how the coach said these discouraging yet words or behavior that a coach shouldn 't do . One of my senior teammates in my track team had a friend in a nearby town that was suffering from the coach trying to “teach her” how to run and pace herself, but he was a little too touchy with her on her arms and legs and she felt uncomfortable, and because of this everybody started to avoid the coach and the practices. This really upset me because first, if the
Finally, we figured out who it was, I could not believe what I had discovered. It was one of the girls I thought I could trust, turns out she was using me. After this incident I found her talking about me behind my back and telling another girl she was using me to become more popular in our class. Having finally lost one of my best friends I was clearly devastated and just tried to end my experience at Schechter in peace. Speaking only when necessary, staying out of the drama, being true to myself, the key to
In Langston Hughes’ poem “Mother to Son,” the speaker discusses overcoming obstacles. I overcame an obstacle when I was sad and unmotivated about schoolwork because it was getting harder for me. Like the poem’s speaker, “I’se still climbin’, life for me ain’t been no crystal stair”; I went through a rough period but I eventually was motivated again and was able to work on school. This line relates to my situation because I may go through bad times more than once but in the end, I know I will be able to get back up and continue no matter what happens. I, like everyone else, have gone through a rough period in my life but I was able to get through it!
My parents said to me like it was one of the hardest thing to do you are getting held back holding my hand tightly. After a few seconds to take it in I ask why why¨ why am I getting held back!! With sorrow on their face about to cry they said you can 't read as the other kids. Learning to read was going to be a challenge but I knew I had to overcome it but it was later on though. I didn 't like that when I was younger but now I like that I did.
My last work experience didn 't end too well, but I have definitely learned a lot from it and myself on how I learn best. I know I learn best when I consistently get put in the same specialty until I learn it well enough to handle it on my own. Practice make perfect and repetition is key for me. My last work experience at
I still deal with anxiety on a regular basis, and sometimes waking up everyday is the hardest thing of all. Regardless, I’ve learned that continuing on is the best way to deal with this. I have also learned that although attending classes is still a problem for me, I am able to excel in online learning. By learning in a “safe space” I am able to focus completely on schoolwork, and I found my grades reflecting this over the last year. Eventually, I will move past this and thrive in a social setting once more, but until then I will continue to work towards my goals while building myself back up.
Therefore, we still have changes to come when we referred to discrimination, but for the most part, it is a safe and all-inclusive school. The administrators have done a colossal job in changing the culture from the roots up by leading with specific strategies, personal and professional example, and by demonstrating support to the students, faculty, and staff. Before I got to participate in this assignment, I thought that the process of change was non-existence or slow around me. This task was helpful by taking me step by step into the process of chunking, understanding, evaluating, and analyzing different changes that I had endure in my personal and professional life. I can have a better understanding of myself and how ready and flexible I am to adapt into the different environments.
But she agreed and finally understood why I was acting the way I was. Even though I hated it, and still struggle with it, my relationship with her has significantly improved. Now, I say all of this, and tell my story, because I came to the realization that I was scared of how she would react and how she would feel afterwards is why I don 't talk, and why I start to shut down when communicating and I came to that realization during this class. I will admit that it was not fun, and I explained it to my boyfriend when I got home and he said that it makes sense. And now I 'm slowly but surely working on it, and will hopefully, by the end
Not only that, “Remembering Raquel” proves that you won’t realize that you miss or need someone until they are gone forever. Raquel is very helpful to everyone around her, even if they are rude to her. She would always volunteer to help her classmates and teachers; basically, anyone. Jonah Proia was one of the many people Raquel had helped. Raquel was
Looking back, this was probably one of the most After gymnastics, the words “try, try again” are probably permanently etched into my brain. After doing one routine, feedback was given, and then you did it again. You had to adapt and fix your mistakes while still remembering how you did things correctly before. No one asked you to be perfect, but I always tried to do my best at whatever task or challenge was thrown at me. Even after practices, I would go home and continue to work at my skills at
Every day I regret the moments when I was complaining about GMS. However, when I actually stopped complaining and studied hard, great things returned back to me, like making new friends and getting good grades. You always have to live life to the fullest, because you may never know what life is going to throw back at
In college, you may fail some tests and quizzes here and there but you must remember never to give up. It’s important to know that you’re not doing this just for yourself but for others. Something I like to tell myself every time I feel like giving up is to think about how many people’s lives I will make an impact on with my career. As an occupational therapist, I’m going to make a difference in someone’s life and help them enjoy life even more. So even if things get hard and you want to give up, a good thing to remember is that nothing in this world comes easy, least of all success.
For instance, many times in cheerleading I wanted to give up because I couldn’t understand or get the moves to a dance or cheer. When learning new cheers and dances for cheerleading tryouts I thought they were way too hard for me to learn and I wanted to give up; however, I realized that I really wanted to earn a spot on the team. I pushed myself to learn everything needed for tryouts and I gave my best during tryouts. Sometimes my family pushes me to my breaking point. Whenever something happens in your personal life you shouldn’t let it come between you and your family.
