During the week of tryouts we practiced right after school from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. I was so tired that I had to come home and go straight to bed. I also missed my cousin's birthday party, and even a few other events because of practice. I missed some school events, too. But making the squad had always been an enormous dream of mine.
for the first two years I always complained “It's so boring” and stuff like “don't force me to go again” but I got my stubbornness from my parents, so I kept going. It took a long time for me to stop complaining and realize that nothing is really “girly”. It wasn't until my fourth year that i realized it was something i really enjoyed. the dance shoppe has weekly hour long classes, usually just practicing, learning new steps, and combos and stuff. Then once it hits christmas break, we start to learn our dance.
Originally, I had to work on weekdays. However, due to the clashing with my summer course schedule, I had to give up on a few days of my work in order to attend the lectures. Seeing as my friend was desperately looking for a job, I introduced her to my boss and applied for her to become my replacement while I study. She eagerly accepted.

I am never home and when I am you can find me in my room finishing homework or trying to catch up on rest. In the beginning ,I felt overwhelmed and frustrated. I even considered quitting because of how physically exhausted I was.
By the time I was eight I had moved six times. Moving around was something that I had grown accustomed to. I didn’t like it, in fact I hated moving, but my parents always had a reason to move. Most of the time we moved because of my parent’s jobs. Normally when my parents told me that we were moving again I’d be a little upset.
Weekend visits are considered more points. So because he also has his mother and sister coming to visit, and Teresa can't go during the week because the girls are in school, they're having to do it every other
An obstacle I've had to overcome throughout most of my education was the absence of assistance at home. This caused a great deal of stress on me as a kid. My grandma raised me, who is blind. This resulted in me helping take care of her since I was about the age of six or seven. I remember nights I would come home and stare at my homework for hours, trying to remain focused and also remember what I was taught previously during that day.

I demonstrated reaching my goals when I realized that I wanted to be a physical therapist. I am now finding ways to get use to the environment of an athletic trainer, which is very similar in some aspects to a physical therapist. Every week day, I wake up and go to school.
