"We're unfading temporarily" - Neil Peart That line from a Rush tune continued experiencing my head on the day I got to be mortal. I as of late started perusing Neil Peart's book "Apparition Rider. " The book starts with that line and it helped me to remember the day I got to be mortal, despite the fact that I am always helped to remember that day by waiting a throbbing painfulness. It happened in 1998.
The Thursday night lights beamed down on me as kickoff approached. It was the last game of the 8th grade football season and the last chance to make my mark on a personally rather ordinary season. We were playing Celina, a team known to be a powerful opponent. I was on the kickoff return team, playing on the far left side of the field and on that particular night we were set to receive the kick. The referee’s whistle pierced the warm and soundless autumn air.
‘’RR’’ I bounced on the old rusty trampoline, preparing myself to flip over and do a tuck. I looked at the camera I had set up to record myself, I had sworn I was doing it wrong and I needed to see what I was doing. I soon later found out I was doing it REALLY wrong. I take a deep breathe even though I've done this so many times before, I then do the actual flip.
I was blessed enough to grow up with every single one of my family members being happy, healthy, and all just a short walk away. Every one of my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins live in the same neighborhood as me. The only time I ever had to visit the hospital was when my grandmother got knee replacement surgery.

When friends would lose a family member I didn’t always know what to say.
Most schools in the US offer interscholastic competitive activities for students to participate in. Competitive activities give participants and spectators a chance to rally together and support their school district. In addition to showing support to their school, athletes are provided with physical activity and several other opportunities they would not be given otherwise. Schools should keep interscholastic competition. It is expensive to maintain extra-curricular activities.
I have played premier/select soccer for 11 years, I dreamt of being a pro soccer player when I was little. The summer of 8th grade I tried out for the high school soccer team. After the three days of trying out. I waited to see if my name was on the roster. My dad called me
I ran in my middle school’s track team for two years. I ran the mile, one hundred meter dash and triple jump. Out of all the events I participated in I absolutely despised the mile, I hated the aftermath the most. The feeling of my lungs burning, legs aching from the long run and the heavy asthmatic breathes. Although the mile had several cons, I loved the challenge and I was too stubborn to quit.
I am a student in Lopez Early College High School and I am in the varsity football team. Last year in the 2014-2015 football season we the team went 0-10. That means that we went 0 wins and 10 losses. Last year we were a bunch of sophomores in the varsity team and as a team in general we were not experienced in playing in a varsity game, since we really went from the freshman football team straight to the varsity football team. I remember that when we played Los Fresno my sophomore we lost to them extremely bad, I remember the score being 72-0.
