After dropping my daughter off at homecoming, I drove thirty minutes back to work and picked up my laptop to please my neighbor. After all this running around, I had forgotten about the plans my mother had made for us that night. Even though I tried my best to please everyone, I ended hurting the people who loved me the
It’s also where I have learned some of the hardest life lessons at the worst times. My hometown seeps deep into my soul, but I’ve never resented it. I love my hometown. I always will. There are a few more places that also have a special meaning to me, but my hometown is at the top of the list.
We were winning so big, and I thought it was a great game. When I looked around the locker room and saw everyone’s faces, I felt selfish. I had only been thinking about myself and this game being my last. I had not thought about my other teammates who also were playing their last high school basketball game. My coach told me to pass the ball to my teammates, even though I was scoring a ton of points.
A Million Thanks To You… Some of my best friends are family, some I’ve known since I was a kid, and others are newer friendships that continue to grow stronger by the day. Although they are all very different, everyone of them are extraordinary. I wouldn’t be who I am today without these people in my life. But before thanking them one by one, I want to thank God, first! I would like to express my gratitude to God for the staggering beautiful events that happen during my vacation.
The event turned out to be a success where I can vividly remember the expression on every child's face; their warm embrace, their excited voices, and most of all the pure joy you can see shining in their eyes despite their situation in life. It was a heart-warming experience for me, and suddenly everything just clicked into placed. I had this stirring feeling in my heart that I can't just ignore to reach out to them. So, I said quietly to myself, "These are the kids I want to teach." I even remember coming home, all excited to tell about what I had encountered, and the first person I ran into was my sister.
Another person that I am thankful for is my grandpa. I never got to meet my grandfather unfortunately because he passed before I was born. Even though I never got to meet my grandfather, I am thankful for him because without him I would not be the person I am today. Everyone has informed me that my grandpa was a man who always tried to make people laugh and was very respectful. I always wanted to meet my grandpa so I thought that if I acted as he did it will be similar.
My first day of being a high school student, It wasn 't really good. I was late for an hour, I didn 't knew anybody because I was a new student. The worst part was all of my classmates knew each other. For the whole week, I didn 't have any friends at all. I was starting to feel frustrated that maybe they didn 't like me, maybe they hate me cause I 'm just an ordinary girl, I 'm not the pretty one or the smart one.
I ended up agreeing with them after all the pressure they put on me. I picked one girl from the ones they showed me. This girl leaves for college all week and only comes to the village to visit in the weekend. The first weekend was my birthday, so my sister and my nieces invited me to spend the weekend with them. I went to my sister’s house which is far from my house and spent the entire weekend there.
