Mom and dad, thank you for all of the things we have done in the past in winter. I have one particular memory. That is when I was very little. Around the age of four. One day, Courtnee, Celenia and I were all playing outside. Courtnee was being a little boring and her being the cool twelve year old, she had left Celenia and I outside. With Celenia being only ten, and me being four, we didn’t know what to do.
Only 6.5% of people who climb Mt. Everest don’t make it back down. But that was not the case for Jon Krakauer in his group. In total, nine lives were lost on the mountain, and three more lives were lost in the following month. These tragic events led to many changes in the character of Jon Krakauer. In Jon Krakauer’s novel, Into Thin Air, Ngawang’s choice to refuse to get treated for HAPE, Beck Weather’s choice to stand on a big rock and let the wind blow him off, and Rob Hall’s choice to not abandon Doug Hansen and save himself led to Jon becoming a wiser, more respectful, and mentally stronger individual.
Mountain climbing is a very tough activity that includes years of training before someone is ready to complete an exhilarating climb. Looking around the world, there are many amazing places to climb. Although two of the most difficult and intense climbs include the Devil’s Thumb in Alaska and Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on earth. “Everest,” by Erik Weihenmayer and “The Devils Thumb,” by Jon Krakauer have some similarities and some differences in terms of the author’s perspective, organization structure, and tone and word choice. As the two authors wrote, they showed their struggles and feats of every situation through words. With those words, they created visual images for the reader and enhanced their imagination of the journey.
The drive was almost unbearable, but the thought of spending the week in the snow with family kept me going. It was only a four hour drive, but at 9 years old, it felt like an eternity. The scenery slowly changed from flat land, to rolling hills. The hills were covered in yellow dying grass, but they were still beautiful. Then we started to make the climb. Up mountains, through the passes, constantly surrounded by trees or a cliff that gave a wonderful view of the mountain next to us. We were so close to the snow of Lake Tahoe. We had been to Tahoe before, but this was a new cabin for us. We were all excited to see the cabin, but more importantly, looking forward to searching for sledding hills the next day.

Failure is not easy to cope with. Failure gives people a sense of apprehension, a lack of confidence that they are not capable of achieving their goals. Although it does not feel the best at the time, this is where success is made. Starting off my ice hockey career at the age of 5 I met many new faces and did not realize at the time that one sport would have such an impact on my life. Through the ups, and the downs, ice hockey has taught me how to be a hard worker, contribute to society, and most of all, how to handle situations when the tide is against you. Here is where my journey, and also the most dreaded part of the year comes, tryout season.
A warm morning, sun shining with a slight breeze, and calm waters; the perfect day to learn how to water ski. I had never been water skiing before, I barely knew what it was, I was anxious to say in the least. I stood on the dock as my parents maneuvered the boat into the water, I’ve never been so uncertain. My family reassured me that everything would be okay as I was strapped up my life jacket. I stood on the edge of the boat, apprehensive, but I had to jump in the water, it was now or never.
If you are a boy that wants to do a school sport in winter but doesn't like basketball, then you probably ran into a same problem as me, because there are not any other sports than basketball for the winter season. This year our school doesn't have a ski team. It means even girls have just competitive cheerleading and basketball. There is a good opportunity to add another winter sport and it's floorball. EJHS must add floorball as another winter sport, because of skill development, student numbers and money issues.
