Two months had gone by before I was able to fully return to school. Overwhelmed with all the material I had missed, I simply struggled in returning. Test, quizzes, and homework from various classes began to conquer my confidence in a successful year. I soon accepted the false thoughts that consumed my determination, I had given up on the year not even half way through it. My grades began to dropping, all the hard work I had put in, over my high school career, for the sake of my GPA didn 't matter to me anymore.
Returning to school is one of the most life changing things I have ever done for myself. After high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Therefore, for a year and a half I stumbled through life trying to figure out what to do. How was I supposed to get a job if I did not have any experience? Luckily, I managed to land a job as a camp counselor, but something was still missing.
I was impressed on the grades that i received on my first semester of junior year finishing off with a 3.89 GPA from that point on I knew that my hard work and effort was now being reflected on my grades as i moved on by the end of my second semester of my junior year i was really impressed in what I had done and i knew for a fact that what I had done was based on my effort and for that I am now a proud student at Tustin High School, But the steps I took to overcome this challenge were just thinking back and reflecting what I used to be in freshmen year to where I stand at now looking forward for an unforgettable senior year at tustin high
High School is a time in your life when you truly find yourself at a stage of coming of age to a young adult. Those four years impact one’s self in many different ways and form the person you become in the future. During the first few days of my high school career I felt that I was at the point in time when I started knowing myself and the person I wanted to be for a good path towards my future. Finding myself in high school was the start of cultivating new relationship around me that had a great impact on the person I was and wanted to become. Friends are an important aspect of high school and take a big part in you as a person.
In fact, my outlook was amazing; there were three elite meets that season, each with a limit of runners on my team that would be taken. Then, tragedy struck the team; three of our fastest girls were injured and out for the season. Now, I wasn’t happy about them being sidelined, but it did finally give me a chance to recover my placement from the beginning of sophomore year. I wanted to help lead the team to state, and with what my coach had previously said, it didn’t appear to be too far out of my reach. However, “too far” should have been followed by an asterisk, as my season soon spiraled out of my
To be honest, it can suck and I felt like quitting after my sophomore year, but I reminded myself how much it meant to me. I thought about how much my life revolved around football, and how much my parents wanted to watch me play. I can tell you now, that I feel completely stupid for even thinking about quitting. RIght now I would not trade High School football for anything in the world. There is just something about being with my team, which has become more like a family to me.We
When I first learned that I could potentially become a member of the National Honor Society, I wanted to achieve to become a member. I know this organization does great deeds for the community all around the world; I would definitely take pride to be in the organization that ensures that a difference will be made. I would also like to generate a difference in my generation along with others. National Honor Society always recognizes students that are exemplary in and outside of school. For instance, my GPA is 3.9 as my grades are my top priority in school and that is what colleges will be looking at along with other criteria’s.
I was extremely excited to be captain because of my love for the sport and for my amazing team, especially because it was going to be my last year competing. My school has still not won a City Championship, but my team and I wanted to change that this year. We all pushed ourselves to the limit, and we worked harder than ever before. On the day of our City Championship meet, we cheered each other on and we put on our best performance. We were all worried that the team that had been disqualified during my freshman year was going to win.
I 've played football my whole life. Even after 11 Years of the game it was shocking that I was not good. My whole life I always wanted to be the all star and the player everyone depended on. But, it just wasn 't me. Following my eighth grade year I was detrimmed to put all the years of failure behind me.
Maybe I am a bit distracted at times during lessons but believe me I have almost always tried to do my best in everything I do in specific my classes. Throughout my life I have been a 2.5 to 3.0 (gpa) student and had maybe a couple of F letter grades since my freshman start at Dinuba High School. I have high hopes of going to Reedly my college though it has always been a goal for my family but most importantly for myself. What I am saying is that I truly believe that I have the qualifications needed to make it to the college I have always thought about going. I am very optimistic about my future and see myself being accepted into Reedly college it is one of my dreams and until I see the day they really won 't accept me I 'll never
