We were both short at the time, mostly because I was still a baby, but I remember him always running around and making me fall over, but I still loved him to the moon and back again. Even though I never told him, I hope he knows I love him. Pugsley was like any other dog, but he was even better, he was smart, beautiful, protective, and so many other things that I just can’t tell you through words, he will always be with me. Forever and
In 2013, I was selected to play on the only all girls baseball team in the largest tournament for twelve year olds in the United States, Cooperstown Dreams Park in Cooperstown, New York. Baseball has always been a male dominant sport and because of that, I have always been praised for being the only girl on the all boys team. Since I was four years old, I had only played with boys. Everyone welcomed me and saw nothing wrong. However, as I grew older and know-it-all dads began coaching their sons, the same faces who welcomed me, turned their backs.
There are times when I would give anything just to be able to gaze into your eyes or play with you hands, even for just a few minutes. I know that it's only a few days that we don't see each other but every second without you helps me remember how much joy you add to my life and it points out how much I miss it. I crave you in the most innocent ways, I crave to say goodnight instead of goodbye. I adore you even when you feel like you are at your worst and I adore you when you are so full of joy that you a lighting up the whole room. I crave you in ways where I just want to be next you... nothing more, nothing less.
I love sports. One of my goals is to start my tenth grade year and I know without working my butt off everyday in there I'm not gonna be reaching my goals and am gonna be a benchwarmer all year but, like I've been saying if I do what I need to the best I can do them I might start who knows. Another one of my goals is to squat more than 200 pounds before next season. I know your thinking what's this kids problem what so great about squatting. Well to me it's not about squatting that much it's about being up there with the top kids who lift a lot and about getting stronger everyday.
The Playground” has more morals than just running around and coaching some children during the summer for Thomas Chang. As he exclaims, “That summer job turned out to be one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had.” (pg.1) Even though he was scared or not sure if he wanted to “walk onto playground,” he still took that chance and the second week was ready to venture out on his own. He realized that in order to teach someone or even just coach them you have to earn their respect. For example, he discovered that “blowing a whistle and shouting was not impressive,” (pg.1) or didn’t get them to do anything. Once, he started “talking on their level” he earned their respect and was able to do more with them.
In conclusion, Richard probably never regrets not one decision he made as the self proclaimed millionaire he is. His parents are probably very proud of him with all of his accomplishments and do not regret, not neglecting his disobedience. This article is a great example of the American dream, at a young age, you should always try to push your kids towards success, whether it’s getting them to do the higher class up in math or even having them volunteer at the local pet store. You should do anything to get them to learn good habits and get them to think school is quote unquote ‘cool‘, a lot of kids get bad grades on purpose due to them not caring or they think it’s ‘cool’. Putting your kids in a private school is a huge advantage because the teachers are hands on and like their jobs and most of the kids who are in there, are there to learn.
It was a magnificent day during the warm month of April, 2014 when young, early teenage me confronted my worst fear head on with the utmost courage and pride within myself that I never knew I had. “I… am gay.” I recall saying to my mother and father, this in turn invoking a bloodcurdling silence that saw me debating whether I had made the best or worst decision of my life. Fortunately, my deeply loving parents embraced this news and reassured me they cared not for my sexuality nor my flamboyancy but for my happiness and ability to accept myself for who I am. However, not all my same-sex loving peers are greeted to the warmth and affection that I was. With the slow but steady rise in the gay population in recent years comes a truly disturbing set of unwanted problems: self-doubters who disassociate themselves from loved ones due to fear of being recognised, homophobic fools with their childish impertinence and medieval few on
There is lots of young people in love love but there will always have it’s ups and downs. “I hope nobody has ever had to look at anybody they love through class.”(22) There will always be struggle, Tish and Funny really love each other but having love means having struggle. In conclusion, Fonny
I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
I was the strange child, I still am the strange child in the class. I wasn’t afraid to tell people what my opinion was about them or their ideas. I wasn’t afraid to find common interests with new friends and share my experience stories with them. More importantly, to me at least, I wasn’t afraid to talk about: my depression, my anxiety or even my bipolar and the feelings of ups and downs that those ‘illnesses’ had put the emotions and mental state I have through. “Everything changes when you arrive at HIgh School,” and, “it’ll be the best years of your life,” I’ve even heard, “you’re going to miss being in school.” I will tell you that while I will miss the three friends I have here in High School, I’m never going to miss the resentment and self hatred that followed my soul all through the first semester of Freshman year that I’m still working through.
