Looking around in the huddle of teammates and coaches, I knew I had picked the right high school because the group of people surrounding me was going to make me a better basketball player. Having both perspectives of my coach giving me critical feedback of my play and my teammates encouraging me to never give up and keep working hard, I learned that it would be challenging, but if I kept my heart to it, I could reach some
Creativity and the Artistic Temperament Culturally, the characterisation of the creative individual pertains less to an individual’s ability to be creative or their talent, and more towards conventions that society recognise as artistic temperament. Temperament refers to a prominent quality of mind. The artistic temperament is often thought of as a heightened state of emotional sensitivity that can border on the verge of instability.

Aside from our goal of winning our games, my volleyball team also worked our way to going to districts—where the top teams go to play against each other for the title of district champions. Then, if we were to make it past districts, we would participate in trying to win states—another tournament that multiple winners of different districts come together to compete against each other. Joining the volleyball team for me was for my personal enjoyment and to get involved in my high school community. These two reasons are what the majority of people join the team for.
