In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial. Football, soccer, and track were what were what took up most of my time until I had a big injury. Which made me forget about playing sports for a whole year. During this time, I looked for ways to stay busy. I came upon this special opportunity to work with wild rescued animals, At least that’s what the lady I
My love for the game had also increased so much throughout the hole season it was unreal. I was always happy to be on the field chanting with my teammates, but One day at school our science class went up to a ropes course to do some activitys for team building skills. I was lifting up a girl and sprained my pitching wrist pretty badly. I took a few games off to let it heal; by doctors orders. When I came back it was like I've barely spent anytime practicing.
The Terrorizing Tornado The beat of my heart was getting faster and faster by the second. My nerves were unruly! I was at a friends birthday party with several other girls. We all went to stay the night at Great Wolf Lodge. I was ready to have so much fun, and make our friend have the best birthday possible.
When I got back into the room the gave me some really nice socks and then they left. People kept coming in and out until finally about 5 hours later, they gave me some pain killers that made me loopy and put the cast on. I was mad because they didn’t even give me a choice of having a waterproof cast, so I had to go the rest of summer, until I got my boot, without swimming. They had to teach me how to walk on the crutches and I was really bad at it, but now I’m really good at
My best pecan fest was this year when I was in 6th grade. All my friends and I did was ride the zipper until it closed and we were the only once in the cart of the zipper. When I was in the line for the zipper with autumn this people through snap and pops at us and they hurt. When we got on the zipper and it started going they tried to throw it up at us in the zipper cart, and one actually came in our cart put it didn’t pop. When we got off the zipper they were still there and they didn’t through it at us this time because we ran away to a different ride.
When she talks about the two young children, she over hears them talking about her looking like a fish (Mansfield 87). She gets so upset that she does not even go to get her honey cake like she does every Sunday evening. Instead she goes home to her room which is the size of a cupboard (87). When she puts up the fur she swears she can hear it cry, because that is what she wants to do. However, she does not say she cries herself because she must keep up with her illusion of happiness to get her through the
When I walked into petco, my heart was pounding,I couldn’t believe I was actually going to get a ferret!My mom and me had made a deal.If I could keep my room clean for a month I could a pet!Though I wanted a rat,but my mom hates rats,we compromised for a ferret! Anyways as I walked over to the aquarium looking ferret cage,my nose was hit with a musty scent.I started to wonder was the smell going to be a problem?Would my nose get hit with a eye water smell, every time I walked into the house?Yet my fears slowly drifted away,like thundering clouds after a storm,when I saw the peacefulness of the sleeping ferrets.They were all curled up in a fuzzy dogpile.Their little limbs twitching as they fell deeper into rem sleep. “Madeline,do you want me to go and ask someone to open the cage or do you?”asked my mom interrupting my thoughts. “Could you do it?”I asked as excitement buzzed through me at the thought of holding such adorable animals and getting to pick one to live with me as my
My Collapse and Restitution When people see me walking through the halls of school, or walking down the street they may see me as an underachiever, or even a slacker; if they had seen me last year or the year before perhaps they would have been right. My Freshman and Sophomore year I struggled to pass many of my classes. I had begun to give up on anything school related for the purpose of "enjoying my youth while I still could". Back in November of my Freshman year my Uncle Gary passed away suddenly of a heart attack which made me begin to realize the importance of living a full life and doing what is important to you. To tell the truth, I despise the idea of becoming someone who works in an office for the entirety of their life in a dead
Friday, April 19, 2013, took place when I was in fifth grade, a month away from leaving the elementary school I had grown to love. I woke up later than normal because I had an operation scheduled for my knee, for it had loose ligaments that caused the kneecap to slip out of place. The first time that my kneecap popped out of joint took place when I stepped down the stairs at my grandma’s house on a cold November night. From that point on, I had to be extra careful in gym class. One time I ended up kicking a ball in Big Base and fell down because my knee had popped.
Animal overpopulation of companion animals has been a huge issue in the US for a long time. I didn’t realize how big of an issue this was until about age 11 when I noticed how bad they get treated when they are not taken care of. I am so excited to tell people how they can solve this problem. I have helped with this issue in many ways. I have 2 kittens that we saved on the highway, a momma kitty who had her 2 babies under our house, 1 cat that was roaming our neighborhood and 1 cat from a drive through.
Going into college, athletics were always first priority to me; but after being a regular starter on my soccer team entering my junior year, my priorities were completely reversed. My first two years of college saw me as one of four players (out of a class of 22 players) to be on the varsity soccer team, meaning that I was exposed to long bus rides, missing classes for team events, and constantly being a lesson behind other students in my class. I had trouble balancing soccer, work, and school during that time, as I was only able to maintain a 3.1 GPA. I decided that putting all my effort in soccer was not the correct route to take, as school was going to lead me further in life. For the next two seasons, I was on a
