There is still so much for me to learn in the area of event management, interviewing Seth was invaluable. I hope to continue to develop a relationship with him and soak in all of his knowledge and experience in the field. Seth told me that at the end of his career he wants to be able to say that he never cheated or sold out, that he was always in it for the student athletes and coaches, not for just a paycheck. I would like to say some of the same things about my
He has always told me that you will learn many things that will affect my future, but it will also be time for me to fall and after I become stronger and fight to realize my dreams. "Only one thing makes the dream unrealizable, fear of failure" (p 141) When I read the story of Santiago in the Alchemist, I remember exactly what my grandfather said about how we fall and get up in this life. We are human that we do not think about the dangers of falling, but we want to reach our dreams and in my case follow the same legend as my grandfather. Do what the heart says, She knows everything, because she is born of the soul of the world, and there she will return one
The most common thing that many people deal with in high school is the fact that they all want to fit in somewhere and want to fit in well. To fit in is to feel more at peace with your life and many people will try their whole life to just fit in. Although some do and some do not, there is still the concept of wanting to fit in that students struggle with. It is an endless battle that you should not have to worry about.
As a Bronco, I participate in football, speech and debate, and golf. I work hard and try to do my best in my classes. Each activity, each class, brings out a different skill or talent that I can contribute or strengthen. My friends are as individual as me and they don’t do exactly what I do.
Sometimes life calls me to sacrifice personal wants for a higher calling. As I watched the B Team receive the first place trophy, I knew in my heart that I was an integral part of the team’s success. I had surpassed my own expectations and helped bring out the best in others. And that’s reward
My coach has taught me to aim higher in life and to try new things you would never expect to do. Now I have different mindset towards things and enjoy challenging myself. Stage 3: The Return The return in a hero's journey, is when the hero has came back to the everyday life. The hero will be at a higher spiritual level and have all the gifts gained from the journey.
I mean everyone always was telling me that as soon as I hit high school to join the FFA program simply because I boosted the best ag teacher in the state, and I wasn’t just hearing this from my friends. No, I was hearing from my older sibling who both had gone through his program. Little did I know that my friends and family would be so right.
I feel as though I have changed a lot throughout my high school career so far. I have made new friends, drifted away from others, modified the career path I want to go on, and most importantly I have become closer to myself and have started to do things I feel are best for me. So much has changed in just half of my career at this school and I am very excited to see where the next two years take me. I can’t even imagine where else I will go in life but I will try my best to make it great. I have many amazing people in my life that push me to do what they know I can and want me to do what makes me happy.
Football has taught me to be humble and realize that a team is always stronger than an individual. Looking back on my final senior season I think of all the things I could have done differently to possibly bring to team together just for the chance to play one more game. Everything I learned from my time playing foot I will remember and use to continue to compete to be a respectable young man and I am very eager to move on to my next phase in life. I hope to continue to add onto my achievements and develop into a better person along the way. Being thankful for the chances I was given I will continue to make the best of them and continue to work for my
In all of our lives a situation arrives where we are forced to consider everything we have ever learnt or been taught about a particular subject. My time came when I was called upon to take the game winning shot which would send my team to the championship round. When situations like these occur, more often than not, they are truly a test of personal philosophy. Coming into this game my philosophy was to first project positively into my team’s future by understanding firstly my past as a player, additionally, understanding that there is a present moment and I cannot neglect it and lastly, focusing on the present or past without giving thought to the future will lead my team and I down an uncertain path. By focusing on all aspects of life,
All my 8th grade classmates and I sit on the cafeteria floor at Daniel Wright Middle School, giggling and staring at the gigantic screen. A slideshow plays. Often mortifying pictures of our younger selves appear with our names. I recollect all the vivid memories from middle school and earlier, like when my 5th grade teacher accidentally threw a snowball at one of my classmates. My friends and I sit together, hollering when we see each other on the screen.
My entire life has been me looking forward. Always looking forward and rarely looking back. Learning from past occurrences and planning the next; I have been a sure handed planner all my life.
