Tears freely flowed down from my eyes. Crying brought pinpricks of pain on my cold cheeks from the hot tears. I absolutely hate ice skating. The ice never gave me any slack, my feet would slip out from underneath me every single time. With my knees and the back of my head bruised; while flaring like fire in pain I couldn’t stop crying. Skating was the worst thing on the planet. My mother decided for Christmas she would try and teach me how to use the new skates I had gotten. Of course deciding to teach me was not the hard part. It was actually getting me to stay on my feet rather than smack down on the frigid ice. “You’ll get it soon,” Mum kept encouraging me. That was easy for her to say, after all my mom moved like a dancer when on the ice. She never ever falls. Me on the other hand, …show more content…
“Would you like to give it another go or call it a day today. The bruises on my skin begged me to go home. Although for some reason I was determined now with confidence in me from nowhere. Those ice skates would not make me quit so I chose to get back on the ice. Putting them back on, I got back on the ice. Clinging to the wall I was crawling across the ice. As I started to feel i’d be okay I travelled off the wall. It was pretty slow going at first and me being in my poofy purple jacket I probably looked foolish. But after awhile the skating just came to me.
Looking back, I kinda laugh at how I acted. Because now I can whip across the ice pretty well. Yeah falling still happens, but that’s okay. Gliding across the ice now bring me joy. Also a certain sense of freedom from my clumsy walking. If you had asked me 8 years ago what I thought of skating, I would tell you it could end for all I care. But now, my heart is stuck on the ice. Just last summer my mom and I taught my brother how to skate. He hated it as well at first but after a little hot chocolate and a pep talk I could now give him. I’m glad I didn’t give up on

I have always been impressed the most with players who dangle around the opposition.

Early on, I wanted to excel in this area of the game the most for some reason. Looking back to my beginning
When I was ten, I scored three-hundred and seventy-eight goals in a season. That’s around five goals per game. An Ontario newspaper had nicknamed me “The Great Gretzky,” which ended up staying with me over the years. When I was just fourteen, I moved to Toronto, Canada. My family continued to support me, even though I had to move away from them at such a young and fragile age, all for hockey.
Personally, I am a soccer player and a runner, so when my soccer coaches announced that my school was starting a field hockey team and that they would also be coaching that, I was skeptical as to my abilities in this sport. Even though this was quite an odd sport and completely different from any that I have ever tried, I decided to give it a shot, and I turned out to love it! Even my coaches were thrilled with how well I picked up the new sport, and I never would have known about this ability if I had not gone out of the box and tried something new! Overall, I agree with Emerson's statement because you can discover new talents and abilities by going outside of your comfort zone.
The ice rink is such a great place to spend some time to get away from it all. When you’re on the ice you can really think to yourself for a moment and kind of relax.

Randy Pausch's life is a classic display of the value he so highly regards: perseverance. When Pausch was a young, beginning football player, his coach was very tenacious.
During my short life, I have not had many life altering experiences; however, one thing that has changed me for the better is playing hockey. Since I started playing hockey in eighth grade it has been something I have become passionate about for various reasons. One reason is my love for the game in general, and more specifically for playing goalie, the one position that holds the balance of the scoreboard. The second reason is being a part of a team. This is important to me because it gives a strong sense of purpose to the player.

I became obsessed. There was always something about that crunch on the ice when I took that step into my cross-over, the speed of the game, the intensity, and the gift of being able to play alongside 20 of my brothers to achieve the common goal of doing something bigger than all of us. I opened that heavy entrance door for the ice rink and immediately felt that rush of eagerness to lace up the skates. With this in mind, I took a step onto that ice and my tryout debut was incredible. I was ecstatic feeling that all my hard work was starting
Dedication is the secret to success for many athletes. I started playing mini-mite travel hockey when I was five years old.
