For the next few days of practice I checked out mentally. My times suffered because of my apathetic attitude. My body felt slow and lethargic along with my mind. The other girls were trying their best to be supportive, but their words were not met with open arms. When everyone else was cheering over our new girls swimming their best times I was in the locker room moping about mine.
Another person that I am thankful for is my grandpa. I never got to meet my grandfather unfortunately because he passed before I was born. Even though I never got to meet my grandfather, I am thankful for him because without him I would not be the person I am today. Everyone has informed me that my grandpa was a man who always tried to make people laugh and was very respectful. I always wanted to meet my grandpa so I thought that if I acted as he did it will be similar.
Moving Away From My Dad. Everyone is so happy about the relationship with their dad but not me i wish i never met mine! My biological father when i was smaller didn’t care about me at all and my well being. He chose his girlfriends kids over me and it got to the point that i could not take it anymore. In 2012 i told my mom i could not do it and i said i need to get away from him.
I was only needed for one event and spent nearly the entire weekend as a cheerleader. At first I thought that all the training, all the pain, and all the lost sleep was for nothing. But I soon realized that wasn’t the case. Life certainly isn’t fair. I won’t always be rewarded or even recognized for my hard work.
However, I am not an outwardly emotional person, so no one truly knew how I was feeling. I was essentially blaming her for our family being divided. Luckily, over late nights I spent dwelling about this, I realized that my mother’s money was not a permanent fix, and it would have lasted very long. I grew to realize that this was the best situation our family could be in economically, yet not emotionally. I do not believe I ever genuinely thought it was her fault that our family was in this situation, I just wanted a real reason for what was happening, and to this day, I still do not have a definite
Chris McCandless graduated from Emory University and was loved by most. Chris did not have a great relationship with his parents; however, he was really close with his sister, Carine. As he travels on, he never came in contact with his family; he did not want them to know where he was, and he completely cut them out of his life. Chris had met many of people along the way in which he considered to be just like family; however, his main priority was Alaska. He neglected all of the people that helped him along the way.
His parents were his #1 supporters, supporting him ever since he was born and said he was grateful for them. He's 29, has a lot of wisdom and experience, sometimes outsmarting his parents. He made mistakes, as everybody does, but sometimes he'd learn not to do something without even doing it! He grew up a middle class life having just enough, if not more guidance than needed. He was the perfect
I thought I had hit rock bottom, I was about to commit self-harm and there was only one person who I had trusted I told her and that was my best friend. Somehow she always helped me and she never gave up on me. My family didn 't notice until after, so they would probably ask themselves why I would think about doing that. And now that I think about it there are many people who have been or going through the same as I was before. On the news you don 't often see many people who have committed self-harm.
I also expect my classmates to respect each other's opinions even if they may not agree. As for Mr. Peters, I really enjoyed freshman year in his class and love how he keeps things exciting through even the subjects that don’t interest me and how he is always willing to help and truly cares about each student’s individual success. As long as he keeps that up, it is going to be a great
She had set backs like, moving every time she got a new stepdad, not having money to go to college full time, not living in the best environments, and so much more. None of these things stopped her though. She has worked none stop since she was in eighth grade, to help pay for her own clothes, car, and education. She had plenty of reasons to give up but she would always spring back from them. Douglass didn’t grow up in the best environment either, never fully knew who his dad was, getting separated from his mom – Harriet Bailey – being whipped and beaten, watching many other slaves die or get beaten, and that’s just the start.
Amir had many chances to make up for his mistakes, but he never did. Hassan and Amir were best friends since childhood and Hassan always acted respectful to Amir and did everything Amir wanted. However, Amir never told anyone that he knew Hassan got raped, and if he had told someone the situation would have been different. Furthermore, he also was the reason why Hassan and Alli moved out their house. Amir had many opportunities to say something, and sometimes he wanted to, but when the time came Amir was quite and never told anyone.
Arnold works hard to make his friends. He sticks up to himself and doesn’t bully others even though he has been many times. Another time Arnold is kind to his friend is when he is talking about Rowdy, “It makes me think of Rowdy. I missed him so much. I wanted to find him, and hug him and beg him to forgive me for leaving(217).” He and Rowdy have been friends for a long time and that is because Arnold appreciates him.
Amber keeps me sane. She always know what to say to put me into a good mood. Another one of my closest friends is actually my boyfriend, Ian Hanthorn. Ian and I were friends for a year before we started dating. My favorite thing about him is his unwavering personality.
