But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...and an athlete...and a basket case...a princess...and a criminal...Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.” (Hughes, 1985, scene 39 ) During the Saturday detention the students found that how they originally perceived themselves to be wasn't so, they found that they also had a little bit of each other Bender goes out of his norm by saying “I'm thinkin' of tryin' out for a scholarship.” (Hughes, 1985, scene 20)Then Vernon brings John back to reality by saying that he will probably be the last one to drop out of
You know girls at that age are mostly like to have only one topic to talk about “Boyfriends” yes of course that is also what we used to talk about not we but they .I had nothing to say to them I had no boyfriend. I was not going to admit it in front of everyone but I always wonder why I don’t have one while all my friends had them not that I was not beautiful but actually I was and much more than they were (giving myself too much credits) Wien would say “which boy would wish to date a nerd like you?” that’s how he/she is, always discouraging .a year later my family left to another city.at first as any other stranger I knew no one
Wrestling vs Not Wrestling (In College) The opportunities are plentiful and the rewards are generous. College, it’s a time for young adults to go off and try new things, grow as their own selves and pave their own path. There are an abundance of people who go off to college and participate in athletics, for myself this is an option. Wrestling is my sport, it’s all I know besides cattle, and it’s playing a major role in an extremely important life choice. Or is one better off sticking to school itself?
My favorite wrestler is Chris Perry, but I didn’t learn about him from watching him, I learned about him from a wrestling camp. I would have loved to watch his matches, but by the time I learned about him he had graduated. That made me very angry and I hope that it is on more this year so that I can follow my favorite teams. Some of you may disagree with me and say that wrestling is on enough or that there is higher demand for other sports. I would respond by saying that if they had put wrestling on more in the past there would be a higher demand for it now.

Just by this I could tell he was strong and powerful. These people I met for a brief period of time but the brief people don't only make my story book. I could go on for days about my family and friends and how I got to know them with starting out with knowing nothing about them. Friendships and families are a story and evolve the same way everything else in my mind does. It starts off brief and I guess around about what things can be and then as I get to know the thing or person I identify with their stories and how the things that have impacted them have stuck in my head to impact me too.

It all started from a situation that happened in my sophomore of high school. I was giving a presentation front of my classmates and as I got to the front of the classroom my anxiety kicked in, I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know that all of this was going to happen. As I was standing there trying to give my presentation but I couldn’t move on with my presentation because my anxiety had kicked in and was causing a dilemma, as I was standing there trying to give my presentation I began to sweat and my classmates began to notice that I was sweating, the minute they saw that I was sweating they all began to make fun of me. I was so embarrassed I didn’t know what to do.

Im at a point in life where I want to start fresh and better my life.. What i learned the past two years in college not to stay in the past, learn who i am as a person, and becoming a man. Coming into college I would always bring up my past in high school whether it was good or bad. When ever someone made a comment to me or asked me about something i would always refer back to high school. In the beginning of football season my freshmen year Coach asked “If i was ready for the season? ” I responded “of
After that season I was more motivated than I have ever been. I was determined to go all out for my first varsity season. I convinced my dad to sign me up for a gym membership. At first, I wasn’t taking it that seriously, I would go around 3 times a week. But later on I got myself a partner to train with me and we pushed each other to our limits.
