Despite being a year younger than everyone at the age of 9, my mom and I agreed that it would be good to join the swim squad. I will never forget the first time I went to a big swimming competition. Attending the "Hong Kong Age Group Championships" was a big deal for me. I had the opportunity to swim with the best in Hong Kong. Racing in a pool that had been constructed recently was definitely something new to me.
Fourth, some people think swimming in school is dangerous because kids could drown. In fact, there have been some cases of students drowning during or after gym class, like the stories of Abdullahi and Shuai. 12-year-old Abdullahi Charif was dead two days after he was found in the deep end of a school pool during his gym class. Shuai Jiang was found dead in the school’s pool twenty minutes after his gym class ended. He was only thirteen (Kim McGuire March 5, 2014).
On a hot day, she decides to conquer her fear of being seen, therefore she got ready and went for a swim in the river. Many days went by, and she got used to spending her days in the water, she got to unravel a curiosity for a “lokal” swan in the river. Both day and night she observed the swan and its movement, until she at last swam close enough to touch it. The theme of the story is concurring your fears, the main character in the story, takes us along, her journey on what happens to her, and how she slowly manages to get closer to the swan during her daily swims. S.J Butler writes his short story in third person narrator “she is hot”( P.1 L. 10) and he focuses most on on the setting.
Today I look back at 37 years of swimming. The only times that I did not swim in these 37 years, were when I had injuries, broke fingers, a broken leg and expected my baby. Oh, not to forget the times I left at 2 am for work and got home only at 21:00 pm that night as a representative. Needless to say, I took to the pool at every opportunity I could regardless of the circumstances, depending on pool availability of course. Reflecting on this lifetime of swimming, professional life and now the job title of Swim Mom, I realize that swimming bring more to the table than just being active, feeling good due to exercise and of course controlling weight.
During the first half of freshman year, I drifted through the class because it was mostly quizzes on camera equipment and cables. In the second semester, however, we started working on projects such as commercials and music videos. I soon came to regret my lack of attention in the first semester because I loved being behind the camera, no matter what was in front of it. Near the end of the third quarter, I made a short film with a friend called, “Workin’ like a Dog”. I put more work into it than anything else the entire year, and, to the best of my memory, our final grade was a 98.
April 23,2011 myself, Herion, and Prentis decided to drive 2 hours away to one of our cousins house just to get a break from the situation. We all went out that night and had a great time. Knowing that my grandmother was in bad shape we got up early in the a.m to go back to her house. An hour on the road my phone rings, then my heart skipped a beat as it became hard for me to breath and tears rolled down my face. All I could do was drop my phone, I could talk to even communicate with my two cousins in the car that the time had came.
My dreams are as big as the ocean This is what happened My sister did great in school, in High school she was the student with the highest gpa from her school even graduated with honors. She started distancing herself from the family Started to make bad choices that the family didn't agree Until she had her baby Since I was 4 years old I remember I would stop playing with my dolls in the afternoon every school day and checking the time almost at every instant waiting for my sister in the living room looking standing up in the couch looking out thru the window excited to see my sister come back from school. I was always excited to see her walking home with her black long hair put, carrying her little bookbag, her blue shirt
At dinner later that night my mother broke the new, “Honey, Miss Soar has requested your help at her camp this summer.” she said. I was in complete shock, not sure if I wanted to go I responded with “I’ll pass by her house tomorrow and tell her I’d like to help out. That was the end of it. First day of camp came and there were kids running around everywhere causing all types of ruckus, but I quickly adjusted. Then I noticed Miss Soar and she approached me “Hello, I’m so glad you are here!
She immediately called me back saying my SAT scores were not high enough. Hearing the heartbreaking news from my advisor, I was easily discouraged because taking tests for me is like an obstacle course. I have really bad anxiety and I blank out during the test, but in order to get into the University I had to take the SAT again. After signing up and taking another SAT test, I still did not make the requirements to get in the school. At this point I’m crying every night, all these scenarios start to fly through my head “Will I be able to play softball at the
On our way back home we got really lost, we 're supposed to be in Illinois, and 4 hours into the drive we realize that we were in Wisconsin which we all thought was hilarious, it just added 4 more hours to the trip. So we get about halfway home and everyone 's really groggy and everyone 's just ready to go to bed at all the sudden my mom starts freaking out and tells us to pull over so we think that we did that she has peed her pants so we 're just kind of laughing at her. so she steps out of the car and she goes inside to the bathroom and my step dad goes in after her and we 're all just kind of laughing it off and then once again in the bathroom they realize that all of the liquid that 's coming out of her is not water it 's blood. it was a really heart-wrenching moment for all of us because we knew she had lost the baby. So the whole car ride home which is about six hours was just crying and praying.
