She tells me that it is going to be a huge commitment. I did not truly understand what that would entail until I started my training. As I started my training I was still able to dance with my friends, and we would joke and mess around throughout the class. Later on, I had individual classes where I would dance for 2 hours straight and I was not able to hang out with my friends because I was in class. At first, I was not happy about it because I felt like I was missing out but I later realized that I truly love dance when I was able to practice for 4 hours every day only complaining that my legs were killing me and not
Decisions are always made but not always appropriate to all people neither, that it maintain justice to all whom it was applied on. This was the issue i faced with the decision that my school took When I was in grade 6 my school decided that it will only allow high school student to register in international competitions, because that believed that lower grades doesn’t have the mental ability to participate in it. My school saw the whole world wrong they believed that it is only time loss. They saw all the competitions that are made for grades between 1 to 9 are with no intentions or benefits . Since grade 3 most of my teachers was realizing that i have a fast saving memory.
While a lot of people can fit both into their schedules, most people find it hard to do so. When I was younger, I was always told that school would solve all of my problems, so from the moment I started preschool to the moment that I graduated high school, I made sure that I put my all into everything that I did. I was a 3.0 student when I graduated with a 22 ACT score. Not my best work, but I was still proud of myself. It was those accomplishments that got me scholarship money and acceptance into some pretty good schools across the country.
The national school spelling bee of 2012 was coming up in exactly 7 weeks. Part of me had a feeling that it’s not even that important for me to study, but another part of me said that since I was selected, I should take this seriously. As time passed, I actually became interested in the spelling bee and could find myself spelling any other word on the given list with ease. Although I continued to stumble upon the same word repeatedly. “It’s easy, you’re not even trying your best“ is what my dad told me after trying to spell Pulchritude for the 7th time.
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
My Greatest Accomplishment A truly great accomplishment is something that lasts and requires determination and extensive effort. For me, making the Texas Small School All-State Mixed Choir was my biggest accomplishment because it opened me up to new passions, taught me how to work hard, and set me on the path I am on today. In my sophomore year, I joined choir simply to get my fine arts credit out of the way. At the time I did not have any plans for college and was uncertain on what I wanted to do with my life after high school. I honestly hated school and just wanted to get it over with.
Half the time I love playing my alto saxophone, but the other half I just want to throw it at a wall. Why, you ask? This feelings only comes around when there is a new honor band or it’s chair placement time. My failure is never challenging myself enough in band in order to get better. Concert band has been a long rode for me throughout the seven years I’ve been involved in it.
In my senior year of high school I decided to enroll as a dual credit student at a local community college. That summer I spent studying for what was sure to be my down fall the math section on the Texas Success Initiative Assessment or the Math TSI. After weeks of cramming the time came and I took the TSI. Sure enough I failed the math portion. It wasn’t much of a surprise many members of my family had to take remedial math.
After dropping my daughter off at homecoming, I drove thirty minutes back to work and picked up my laptop to please my neighbor. After all this running around, I had forgotten about the plans my mother had made for us that night. Even though I tried my best to please everyone, I ended hurting the people who loved me the
Learning how to play an instrument does not happen overnight, it is an art that takes time and dedication to accomplish. Although I have been playing my clarinet for seven consecutive years, there are many things I continue to struggle with, like double-tonguing or counting while I play. Over the years, my entire mood toward music changed after choosing my instrument, being present for a group lesson, and participating in Solo and Ensemble Contest. Each event played a role in making me the musician I am today. The idea of choosing an instrument at the age of nine seemed astonishing, but I never knew that a single day would spark an everlasting fire in my soul that longed for music.
