This was very different to me because my past schools’ I was always the “new kid” that was not wanted around much, so having to be the center of attention in the new place with everybody wanting to know me and introduce me around was very pleasing and I never wanted it to end. But the thing is I was not the only new student to join, there was another student that was with me that did not get the same treatment that I was getting. At first I thought it was because he was alone and did not talk much. However, it turned to be because I was so overwhelmed by all this friendliness that everybody forgot about him. I could have gone to him and introduced him to everybody but I did not because I had something that I never had before and I did not want it go away or even share this with anybody.
When I was 14 years old and afraid of practically everything, my music teacher came up to me during class out of the blue and told me, “I am so grateful that a kid like you is in this program.” At the time, I didn’t really understand what he meant, but I held onto the idea that hopefully I would be able to live up to the way he talked about me. Here I am three years later, getting to say all the long hours and hard work I put into our music department helps me not only make myself better, but to better the kids around me who will eventually take my place. And it all started with a little grateful comment. Gratitude is something we all define a little differently, but can have one of the most influential impacts on our lives when used correctly.
I felt confident in my tumbling, however I had never stunted before and I couldn’t seem to get the hang of it. I am very short, so the only position available for me on the team was to be a flyer. This terrified me and as the summer went on, the majority of the upperclassmen whom I had become friends with ended up quitting. It eventually got to the point where I dreaded going to practice and didn’t want cheer to distract me from my school work. I ended up resigning from cheer right before school started and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Imagine a person putting in so much work and dedication towards something that they care little to nothing about. Well, that was a reality for me. After my freshman year season of football, I began to not have a passion for the game I had played since second grade. The lack of passion for the game of football led me to start playing volleyball, and that decision had so many positive effects on me. The most prevalent of those effects are how I met so many wonderful people through the game, how I completed my dream of becoming a Division one athlete, and how I got to help out so many people through volleyball.
My parents looked after me by turns and they no longer asked me to study. Virtually, it seems that my perfect life did not bring any well being to me. I was afraid of losing my life and end my life without any achievements or things I can take pride in. Thanks to the second chance which god gave to me, I realize that I have so many valuable treasures in my life, such as, the love from my parents, teachers and classmates, and fortunately, I still have a long way to go in my rest of my life. Receiving the inspiring words and blessings from the people who I think are careless about me, I was like a butterfly and have a metamorphosis and changed my attitude towards
All my teachers said "Let him be. He will be bored soon" but that wasn't true. In all my graduations I was happier knowing that I would not see the kids who bothered me again, but later I realized that, for every single kid that made fun of me I had two good
When you ten years old you think everything is perfectly fine you have hardly any worries and you think your parents will be togther forever. But that is definitely not always the case and when I hear the song it reminds me of the heart break I felt when my dad had to leave I had never been so devastated in my whole life. My parents weren't on speaking terms for a little bit and it was really hard for everyone involved especially for me because I used to be a really big daddy's girl and now I only saw him on the weekends. I remember crying at night because I missed my dad so much and I wanted him and my mom to get back
I have had a very odd year, amazing, fun but nonetheless, it was a very memorable school year. It is rather surprising when I look back and think about how I was in August. I was very chubby, shy, i had low self esteem and i was not very open towards new experiences or people. Since then, i have been influenced by so many new people and experiences that it brought me out of my shell. Since August i lost 35 pounds, i became more confident and i no longer really care about what people think about me, all i do is just try to get through my day with the least amount of failures as possible.
That ended up being one of the best things I have ever done it changed my life. Not because it is this big gigantic thing actually most people who hear this story probably would think that is is pretty insignificant thing that does not mean much but to me it was everything. Not only was I actually good at it but I also truly enjoyed it before this I never really did anything for everyone else I became I became like so many other kids my age were like I thought I was entitled to everything and never gave back to anyone.That all changed I came into the room and there were a lot of kids I thought I was going to have problems but I ended up just talking to the kids and they actually liked me.I was so happy I spent the next few weeks just laughing and playing with these kids it was amazing. I loved seeing these kids and seeing how far they have
Most would say it’s because I was born in the suburbs I went to private school but they didn’t know deep down we all have struggles within ourselves. Other kids that weren’t as fortunate as me saw me as cocky. Only time they respected me was when they saw what I can do with a ball at my feet. At the age of three I picked up my first soccer ball that’s when I found out what love was. At the age of five I saw a team in England play their name was Manchester united the manager was the great Sir Alex Ferguson I then came to the realization that they played the exact type of football I loved fast and physical with a great passing game.
