“Find your passion and make it happen” - Irene Cara “This one is an easy strikeout bud!” my dad would say. “Ball four! Batter take your walk” the umpire called out. After the game my dad would give me his motivational speech, telling me how much he looks up to me for finding love in the game he loved as a kid. Hoping to cheer me up from a bad inning but it wasn’t just a bad inning; I just didn’t like baseball.
Her brother was berried on the way to Munich, there she stole her first book from a grave digger(Liesel didn't know how to read due to her families poorness). Then they headed off to Himmel street, Munich where her mother left her with Hans and Rosa Huberman. At first she didn't like it there, though overtime she got use to her new life with the Hubermans. The first time she met Rudy(her future best friend) was during a
As a result, she read children’s books every single day, and eventually she graduated to the adult books. Her parents were strongly against her reading books, which led to her discovering her “power.” After a harsh yelling from her dad, Matilda realized that she had telekinetic powers. Matilda is a hero because she didn’t use her powers selfishly, and she was fearless. The way Odysseus defeated Troy and defeated the obstacles purposely placed in front of him are characteristics of a hero. On the other hand, Odysseus also lost all of shipmates on his journey home, which he could have avoided.
That’s when my father told me about how the parents were angry because they didn’t want to watch their child be replaced by me, I didn't care because I never saw it as a competition for positions. I liked the girls that I was playing with, so it didn’t come to my mind that I should are whether or not the parents were mad at my father and I, to be honest I just wanted the chance to play Softball with a travel team. Although, the angry parents had affected my chances playing on the field Because the coach didn’t want any complaints. Game after game I sat on the bench and watch the team lose and this made my father furious. We didn’t give up and go home though.
II somehow managed to crawl to first base before they threw me out. As I was laying on the ground my coach came to me and yelled at me saying “that’s why you don’t lie to me about being in pain”. At the time I wanted to tell him to screw off but I kept my mouth shut. After a
He never had many experiences outside of the house, so he acts as if he was still the child he was before he stayed in that house for so long. Boo Radley is also considered a Mockingbird, the symbol of innocence in the book. Jem conveys the theme of love for his sister Scout when he takes his birthday money to buy her a twirling baton (even though his caring gift didn’t last long). “Jem thought he had enough to buy a miniature steam engine for himself and a twirling baton for me” (Lee 116). While he does end up snapping it in half during his rage towards Mrs. Dubose, it is clear that Jem had loving intentions towards Scout.
She told him how she wants to learn how to read to know if the grave diggers buried her brother even though Hans only went to school until 4th grade. “The Grave Digger’s Handbook” leads to her learning how to read and write. After the bedwetting incident and Hans finding the book, Hans helps Liesel with writing by writing the ABCs and giving an example, for example “S” for sausmench. Every night Hans would read the book to her and this would help Liesel and Hans with their reading skills. When she went to school, she felt embarrassed because she was in a lower class for her age.
Its pretty sad to say that if you’re not born with it you probably won’t have. I was always taught to get out and get it on my own if I wanted it. Arthur didn’t have those options. His parents couldn’t afford it so he was limited. I’m left wondering what would the outcome be like had Arthur been hands down the better athlete of the two?
I loved that the speaker did not want to make a putty speech about him retiring from playing baseball. Instead he told his story about being lucky. Be great fun for knowing so many great people and players. Thankful he got to suit up so many times to play he game of baseball. When reading about Gehrig before reading his speech, I found out that he retired because of a disease that was crippling and is now named after him.
I often forgot that it was only written a few years ago. And then there’s the authentic, likeable characters! Lincoln is who every teenager reading Fangirl would want to be reading about in ten years. Cute, geeky, lovely, but his story isn’t easy and sadness frequents Attachments as much as the cute romance. Lincoln happens to hate his job, he still lives at home with his mother, his Dungeons & Dragons-playing friends all have families… He wants out, but leaving Beth, and her emails, is difficult to
A brother is a person that help you because he has pass experience my brother taught me to play baseball because when he was little he didn 't have a older brother to teach him. So that is why i 'm honoring him. His name is Jesus ‘’ Chewy’’ he taught me to be athletic and he help me to get better and better at everything. He wanted a little brother so badly because all he had was 3 sister and when my mom told him that I was a boy he was so happy but that was what my mom said. I going to tell you about his baseball career/ career/ What he does on his free time.
She always had her grandmother and her brother, though, to make her happy. When she was around eight or nine, she discovered another outlet: reading. She loved reading William Shakespeare, but felt bad because he was a white man. Additionally, not only did she struggle with being African American, she was forced to grow up being called ugly, while she had a beautiful and graceful brother, Bailey. Bailey is described as: “small, graceful and smooth… he was lauded for his velvet-black skin.
Regretting is being disappointed over a missed opportunity. Lewis Carroll stated, “In the end of our life, we regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were too afraid too have and the decisions we waited too long to make.” The missed opportunity that I regret in my life is not going to the invitational for USA Baseball. This opportunity could’ve been my big break in baseball while as a player in high school. I never put in the hard work and I learned my lesson because I wasn’t ready to try out because I felt that I wasn’t good enough. I live by Lewis Carroll’s quote because at the end of my life I don’t want to regret anything.
