I am from a small town in Southern California called Highland. Every weekend I would plan trips with my friends where we’d go to famous places around California just to see what the hype was surrounding it. Body: Having this mentality in college just made the world more
When she saved the people from the flood, she got completely wet and she was swept away with the wind. When she was found by the Guards from the city that she is from, she was not breathing. She had to be taken to a mini hospital to get some fluids in her systems.When she finally came to, she asked where she was. She got worried on where that mini hospital was located. After she was back on her feet,the doctor at the hospital said that she needed to be on bedrest for a week.
That July, two years ago, was particularly hot, humid and promising to be boring. Having finished his second year in Highschool and planning to spend the summer working in the local amusement park, I was not anticipating any glory. Moreover, most of my friends had moved out of town for the summer and traveled back to their homes while I was stuck in Oregon for the
One day, I was playing outside with my friends at school, and we were talking about sports. We discussed which sports we play and everybody was talking about softball, and that interested me. I had never played softball before, but it sounded like fun. After our discussion, I decided to give softball a try. I wanted to be able to play with my friends.
When I started seventh grade I had the chance to play on a different club team, Thunder. In seventh grade I began school basketball, I was very uneasy. Tryouts were not my favorite thing. It turns out I was actually really good, I made it on the A team, and we had a great season. During the summer of eighth grade I went to a basketball camp at Wartburg College, Snow Valley.
Sierra…!” It started on the Fourth of July, when my family went to my sister’s boyfriend’s house to celebrate. The afternoon included a variety of fun activities, like bags and water balloons; not to mention that there was a bunch of delicious food! A bunch of peers from my church were there, as my sister met her boyfriend through church. The highlight of the day was throwing water balloons at each other; it was quite a hot day, so it felt very nice to be splashed with cold water. Before long, we had run out of water balloons, and were reduced
When I was in third grade I didn’t have many friends in my class and this led to me spending most of my recesses on the curb watching the other kids play soccer. I would do this every day for about a week, but one day when one of the kids saw me watching and asked, “Want to join?” At first I was nervous and just watched the other players on my team, but eventually there was an opportunity for me to shoot and ended up shooting the winning goal. It was because of that day that I continue to play soccer today. Like every other day of the first week of school, I was sitting alone at recess on the curb, watching the kids play soccer. It wasn’t as hot as the past few days but the sun was still shining down on the pavement.
As a matter of fact I would not realize my love for it until nearly a year later. It took me a soccer camp, two seasons of soccer in school, one out of school, and a Championships for that to happen. It interested me like no other thing. I would spend hours every day on it. And on the west side of the Island ,where I lived and went to school, the “big” sport played wasn’t soccer, it was basketball.
I cannot recall any other time I experienced so much joy and satisfaction. It was on the warmth of a spring day in March, 2015. After finishing the spring semester at high school, the school gives students a one-week holiday to relax or to go somewhere. A beach trip in the spring is always a good idea for us who live near the sea, but this time I was on the bus with my classmates heading to the airport. The school had organized a Habitat Trip to the Philippines, where my classmates and I decided to go to build houses.
