She took the course not knowing the tedious work that was yet to come. Four Statistic classes were required to get her PHD. LeeAnn gradually started to do poorly during her first semester Statistics class and eventually was failing. However, LeeAnn’s master advisor told her that if she failed the Statistics class that she would not get her PHD, so she powered through and turned her ‘F’s’ into A’s.
My breakfast was the same as any other morning, a bowl of cereal and some yogurt. After breakfast I ran a quick routine check of my lacrosse bag. As soon as I opened it, the smell of my pads hit me like a truck, even though I had been playing for two years at that point and should have been used to it by then. It smelled someone hadn’t showered in six months and had rolled in wet dog. On the way to High Velocity I kept thinking that I had the chance to become a freshman on the varsity team.
My mom my noticed detachment from reality I was expressing and she decided to enroll us in taekwondo a few years later. I knew nothing about the sport, but was eager to try something new. Thorough every punch and kick I practiced, I did it for my dad. I tried my hardest each day I was there knowing he was watching me grow into a stronger person. After three hard years of getting kicked in the face to dodging punches, I earned my first degree black belt.
My friend's family from elementary school have me an opportunity to live with them. My grades averaged out to a C which allowed me to see my junior year in high school. My hopes of becoming a senior and finishing high school were fading fast, I knew I would not make it. But, I managed to see my first and only group home. I needed to free myself of any street activities in order to prosper.
At the end of tryouts, I thought I played great and I was excited to come back for the second day of tryouts the next day. I could barely sleep that night all I was thinking of was playing again. I woke up super early and ran as fast as I could to the school.The second day of tryouts began and the coach said not everyone would make the team, this made
I added small improvements to my game like three point shooting, and additional conditioning so I would not get tired late in games. By the time basketball season rolled around, I was ready for tryouts. The coach had me tryout with both the freshman and the varsity team on the first day. This made the first day the hardest day since, for the most part, all we did was run sprints. Once I got past the first day, however, the next two days were fairly easy, I was able to run sprints without losing all my energy before getting to the scrimmages.
Soccer There once was a soccer game. It was going to be the other team that wins because the other team was in the lead and they just pushed so we get a free kick in the 18 box. I was the one taking the shot and it went in the goal and then everybody was comparing the ball to the goalie. Then there was a DQ because we were in Caro so we stopped and got dinner and then went home to eat and go to sleep and rest for the next day for school. That day at school I was happy because our team had won by 1 more point.
I learned quicker than others and was more intellectual than they were and because of these things I never really had friends. I passed all my classes with A’s or B’s. My grade average was high and I was prepping for college courses. My family had been telling me of all the great things I could do but never prepared me for the hard times to actually achieve any of these goals. During my summer break of 2011, I broke my ankle on father’s day.
I found some of my other friends and started talking to them as well. Once the bell rang we all hustled to our new classes, because we didn’t want to be late. I had Ms. Yarrow, Mr.Lee, and Mrs.Shizzle. The first day went by great and I had amazing teachers with a lot of my friends in my classes. When I got home that day I ran off the bus all the way down to our house and was so excited to tell my parents about my day.
I remember my very first job like it was yesterday. My first reaction I can remember was to giggle and laugh because I would be working with my friends when I got hired at McDonald’s that summer and it made me really happy. I remember during orientation that Barbara- my general manager, asked me if I wanted something to drink before I started training. I said no because I was so nervous that day I felt like I would pee my pants if I took the drink. I was excited to be working that summer because I would finally have my own money and could save for school with no help from my parents.
I would say the event that impacted my life the most would be having cancer at such an early age. I was always told that I acted much older than my age, but I think that has a lot to do with needing to grow up to deal with all the stress cancer can bring upon a family, and upon a child. I have a few accomplishments in life that I am proud of. One being that I am the first person in my family to complete past their freshman year of college, and at the end of this semester I will be graduating, so I will be the first in my family to graduate college. I am also proud that I have obtained my Child Development Associate credential in high school.
Not just for my own injury, but just to gain knowledge about anything I could pick up. I decided about a year after my injury, athletic training and physical therapy were my passions and that it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Little did I know that 3 years later, the exact same injury would happen to my other knee and I would change my career path again. This time was different mentally however, every time I would go to physical therapy, I would notice how quiet it was and how only a few people were there at a time. After doing a lot of research on sports medicine, and other professions available
Deciding to attend Texas A&M University was both a hardship and immense, opportunity in my life. Coming from a close knit background, and possessing a very family oriented character, my decision to come to this incredible institution was one out of my comfort zone. If I was to be asked one year ago, If I could ever see myself standing on this marvelous campus, attending one of the top schools in the nation, I would have honestly responded, no. My counselors would have said no, my friends, my college advisor, my family. The answer would not have been yes, not because I wasn 't capable of meeting the standards to attend, but because there seemed more obstacles in my way than there was forces pushing me forward.
There was another practice on Thursday, but nothing special happened there, excepted are star midfielder Luke Jayne broke his right leg, an arm and his jaw in a car accident. “Well there goes are chance of winning any of our games this tournament” said pretty much our whole team. “We still have two weeks for practices before our Washington tournament, that’s a mass amount of time to get prepared” Coach Moe said. For the last week we have been practicing on teamwork and we have been running an abundance amount every day. Although we hate running it really help us get back into shape and our stamina.
The next day Joey went to Paul 's house and they compared jerseys while he was the Erik and Arthur made fun of him about his brother.
