He said he was sorry but I knew, for sure, he definitely didn’t mean it. I wasn’t trying to frighten him but I could see on his face the regret of asking such a stupid question. I hope it was good to teach him this lesson, one that I should never have to teach him again. I just wanted to shout so loud that the next door neighbours could hear it. I knew my face had gone bright red, it was as red as the tulips.
Not to be cocky or anything, but I was very good at softball. I was the starting 3rd baseman, I was either 2nd or 3rd in the batting lineup, I would always hit dingers that went way out there, and I was very quick to the ball and I had quick reflexes. I don’t know what there was about soccer, it was just relaxing to me. I enjoyed every minute of it and it wasn’t as frustrating to me as softball was. Like whenever I would lose a softball game, I would get really mad and I wouldn’t want to talk to anybody.
People have influences and role models in life, typically a family member. On occasion, for athletes, coaches are a major influence. Throughout my career as an athlete, many coaches have come and gone and have been loved and hated, but none has had a greater impact than Jarica Martarano, my softball coach since sophomore year. She was born on August 24, 1992, she grew up on sports, including basketball, volleyball, softball, and soccer. She only played soccer for a year because she got in trouble for pushing a girl so she did not want to play again.
He just wanted to be done. At first, I had no idea what to do. I wanted to help but I was not sure how to. I tried to cheer him up but quickly realized that would not work. I wanted to tell an adult or his family but I was sure he would be upset with me.
Some of the friends I’ve made playing youth soccer have become my best friends now. We share the memories of game winning goals being scored and water bottle fights after practice. At soccer practices or games I felt like I could be myself. I was free to be silly and express myself. Despite not playing soccer anymore and being much older, I find myself in similar situations as I was while playing soccer.
"One time the author got a complaint from a lecturer (a college in Bandung) who felt not noticed by his colleagues. At that time was not involved as a training instructor (by becoming a training instructor he would earn a decent fee). I say, try to come to the instructor 's coordinator to get a turn as a coach. He said that he had come to him, what he said was: "I have no obligation to anyone-including you-to choose someone as an instructor!". In my opinion, such words are an example of no social concern.
Everyone was talking to their friends. And there were some kids who were already
However, my friends thought I was doing too much and started calling me names like; nerd, boring, no fun life girl etc. Peers and some of my family thought I had nothing else to do with my life than to study. Moreover, my friends were not the most intelligent but they were amusing, entertaining and awesome in class. Teachers appreciated them more in class. I wanted to be like them so I tried to get a bad grade in school just to
I was still new here to DeWitt and I didn’t have many friends, one day after recess Lucas came up to me and whispered into my ear, “will you be my friend?” I said, “yes” with a giant smile on my face. We hung out everyday hours on end. I found Lucas to be a very nice, respectful, friend and I was lucky to have him as my best friend. I can’t wait to hear all the good things he accomplishes in his life. Lucas plans on graduating high school and then going to a community college for two years, before transferring to Iowa State.
