The entire reason a team is put together and participating in practice almost every day is going towards our goal as a team to win games. Aside from our goal of winning our games, my volleyball team also worked our way to going to districts—where the top teams go to play against each other for the title of district champions. Then, if we were to make it past districts, we would participate in trying to win states—another tournament that multiple winners of different districts come together to compete against each other. Joining the volleyball team for me was for my personal enjoyment and to get involved in my high school community. These two reasons are what the majority of people join the team for.
Losing my friends made me change as a person, I can not blame myself for everything someone else does wrong no matter who they are, everyone is their own person. I also became a more independent person-focusing on the things that will make me succeed: standing up for myself not let people step all over me or make me feel bad. Focus on what is
We think of ourselves all the time, and even if we think we are putting others first most of the time we really aren’t. People in general are selfish for their own well-being. People typically strive for their goals, dreams, and views of what success is. Nobody wants to miss out on opportunity to get what they want in life, so the big question is “Why possibly sacrifice your opportunity for the sake of another person?” You only live one life so your best to go ahead and take your shot at opportunity. The general mindset of most people is why focus on other’s interest when I already have mine to focus on in this
A monumental point in one 's life is when they remove the toxic and unveil their true self. Appreciating individuality and self worth is a victorious reckoning in a person 's life also shaping the course of their destiny. Equality was once indifferent compared to others and would suppress his hopes and desires to fit in. A pivotal change occurred in him when he accepted who he is and embraced it blocking out dismissive opinions. Nonetheless, he has established his own set of values which are influenced by his experiences.
I enjoy doing it because I love volleyball, especially club, and I just have a lot of fun doing it, and am getting exercise when I’m doing it. Using the physical activity tracker on ChooseMyPlate.gov, my fitness result was that I am very fit and get a large amount of vigorous activity each week, and meet the weekly requirement for muscular and cardiovascular exercise. I also learned about myself through physical activity, and I learned that I am actually a very fit person with quite a bit of endurance due to all the volleyball I do, which also comes with conditioning for all day
In conclusion, though many South Dakotans think that swimming is an uncommon sport, all but three states in America, South Dakota being one of them, allow their youth the opportunity to swim in high school. Competitive swimming needs to be allowed and encouraged to grow in South Dakota. With the additions of indoor pools in Sioux Falls and Mitchell, and existing pools in many cities, much of the groundwork is laid. High school swimming would benefit participating children mentally and physically, and grant them lifelong skills in
If everyone was motivated and inspired the same way today, the world and people would be much different in terms of ideas and innovation. We, as people, wouldn’t have to worry about a problem because it would be solved almost immediately since everyone is motivated to seek answers including myself so someone wouldn’t be dependent on someone else for their work or problems. At the same time, while people solving their own problems and were becoming independent, people would also, as a reaction, help the world. Sometimes, like Equality, when you are trying to solve your own problems, you end up solving other peoples’. Equality was trying to prove that he was smart enough to be in the Home of Scholars and through that motivation, he invented light electricity that could help millions of others.
There are many articles, which talk about identity, and many researchers have their own unique thoughts. In academic article “Who Am I” by Beverly Daniel Tatum; she talks about the complexity of identity, which defined as a person. She describes the multiple identities of different kinds of people and their significance in the community. She illustrate the how person past, historical event, family background, experiences, and thought of person has impact on the personal identification. The concept of past, present, and future, those characterize the person identity.
Everyone needs to learn that they are special no matter what others say about them or how others make them feel. We are all different for a reason. We need to learn how to be independent and stand up for ourselves like Rosalene did in the novel. Something that we need to never forget is that we are, “Unforgettable, that’s what you are” (Kidd). I like this quote because I believe that if someone acts as themselves all the time and is not constantly following the influences of others and isn't always dependant on others that people will remember that.
Having goals is something that allows people to strive for what they desire in life. Many like to believe what is possible and by doing so, they will conquer whatever they put their mind to. It does not matter what others want in the world when it comes to someone else’s life. In “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas” by Ursula Le Guin, Le Guin allows the readers to imagine that everything they do is up to them and not many people should be able to have a say in what they desire most in life. Le Guin says, “Or they could have none of that; it doesn 't matter.
It is a leader’s responsibility to serve others and inspire them to live fuller lives. Throughout the past few years, I have worked to become the best leader possible in hopes of enacting positive change. I’m often the person my friends turn to when they need encouragement. Though it can certainly be nerve-wracking to risk failure, seeking new opportunities is an important avenue of growth. I attempt to incorporate this message in all of my endeavors, including as a Gatton Academy Avatar.
My group is focused on enjoying the volleyball game and to try our best to win against other teams. We are trying to accomplish the goal for our team, not for our own needs. My group exemplified optimal distinctiveness theory by communicating and
The way I see it is there is always work to be done, just because I might of reached the goals I’m aiming for, doesn’t mean that’s all for me to do, someone else is working for the same goals as me. My main goal is to not let myself down, to not look back and think what more I could of done to make myself better, whether that 's waking up earlier, staying later at practice, taking a couple extra reps just to put myself right over the edge of average. Anyone can be average and live with it, but nobody remembers average, I want people to
Everyone wants to feel accepted in society and have a sense of belonging. Humans feel like they have to prove themselves and sometimes be something they are not in order to be seen as “normal” in society. However, can anyone really explain what is normal in today’s society? So much as changed since Goffman’s book that it almost seems that normal is not so much something people strive for. Today people almost want to stand out and be abnormal.
The Lorena Falasco Running Club is a new club spearheaded by Deborah Atkins. Just as Deborah, I too, began running later in life so I was quite excited when she began organizing this club. I jumped at the opportunity to become a coach! I was athletic as a teen; however, in my adult life sports and exercise took a backseat up until 5 years ago. At one time, the thought of running, made me want to run and hide, but with a great coach I was able to quickly adapt to long distances and enjoy it!
