We told our deepest secrets, and we even apologized for 2 hours on things that we have done to each other. We learned that even if you look like you have it all going for you, most of the time there is something deep within someone that others don’t know. I didn’t know that our Student Council president who graduated with a 4.0 who was also our star football player, star hockey player, and even state champion in two sports, football and track, still feels that his father isn’t proud of him. It 's depressing that we waited almost 12 years to find out each other 's hardships, at that point it was too late to fully help each other out. With all of the time I spent in school, attending class, co-curricular events, and even volunteering with my peers.

When she tells me that my father isn't coming home I’ll believe it. As long as she says Father is coming home, the I’ll believe that”(15). Meg is clearly offended when the principal told her to face the facts. The narrator stated, “one of the boys had said something about her dumb baby brother. At this she’d thrown the books on the side of the road and tackled him with every ounce of strength she had”(1).
My family has always been huge advocates around the idea of playing sports. Once I was of the appropriate age to start playing, my family had put me in Pop Warner Football and I had instantly fallen in love with the sport. At the time, I had dreamed of becoming an NFL football player. That had all changed, when my brother came home from high school one day with a stick in his and a new sport called lacrosse. He told me it was basically football with a stick.
Since we were stranded at the hotel for three days, we were forced by our parents to be nice to each other. We decided that it was best to not talk to each other because there was bound to be some things that shouldn 't be said. After one day of being cooped up, we couldn 't take the silence anymore. We ended up cracking jokes and play games with everyone. Every time after our parents told us to do something, Jake would always say “real talk.” It was the best said on that whole trip because we 'd gone delusional by not being home for 2 weeks.
I was the outsider of the town I grew up in. My coach suggested I quit the last week of the season because of the tormenting.

Then one day I was asked to babysit a young girl with the sweetest smile.
When I was 13 my guitar mentor decided to form a band between him, myself, and another student of his.Even when we played at the worst venues I would still enjoy it just because I got to play. Once we played at a 37th wedding anniversary and everyone was so intoxicated that no one knew what was going on. Still played and enjoyed it just because I got to do the thing that I love the most. The thing that separates me from your average guitar player, is that most people think that they are not good enough or dont have the necessary skills.I didn’t realize this until about a year ago, I think that I have a real chance. Plus I just want it more than anything else i the world.
