We quickly had to find our next best passer, for that next week’s big game, and I was next in line. You will never know when you will have to step up, and when chances like this will arise . You always have be prepared, otherwise you might miss your chance. When I found out that I had to libero for one of the biggest games of the season, I was dripping with drops of nerves. I never had a lot of experience playing on varsity and especially not the libero, because on B-squad I was the setter, which is two way different positions.
If I don’t fill the tags that would be a waste of money. We had to spend over $75 on those tags. I honestly think that the stress on me and the stress on Howard. Your book just lit me up. Ya it is kind of hard for me and my family because my dad has infection and his ankle broke a year ago, his shoulder was broke at about 2 years ago and it still not fully healed.
One of the most challenging experiences I have faced came to me in my JROTC program. In my junior year of high school, I was promoted to the rank of cadet sergeant major and given more responsibilities than I have ever had. I was thrown into a situation that I was unprepared for and given no training on my position. I was given the task to start and maintain a marksmanship team, while supervising the program’s supply room. At first, I was completely over whelmed, and did not know how to perform my duties, because I could not be in two places at once.
We didn’t have the season that we thought we were going to have. Coach Bernans gave a big speech that no one cared to listen to. Silence was in the air as everyone packed their jerseys. I also was upset about the season, but it wasn’t for the same reason as my teammates. I was depressed that I didn’t have the season I expected from myself.
I wash myself without thinking, and before I know it I 'm out of the shower, drying myself. I comb my mop of hair, and brush my teeth. If I am correct, it 's about 9, which means I have an hour to eat and feed Yumi. I finish brushing my hair, and put it in a towel. I walk out of my bathroom and into my own room, looking in my drawers for a top and bottoms.
I dragged myself out of bed every morning at five thirty and worked out hard for two hours before going straight into mental focus at class. I spent what little free time I had learning and refining my soldier skills for Ranger Challenge. As the amount of light in the mornings dwindled, so did the number people vying for a spot on the team. Some quit and others got cut. However, I stuck with it.
People don't understand what it feels like to put in so much work and time into something and it all gets taken away because of one injury or not being able to
As babies, we had to wake up before four in the morning just to be able to get a spot. As children, this was extremely exhausting, most children at our ages were asleep not arranging merchandise in the teeth chattering cold, or the blazing sun. From four in the morning to five in the afternoon, an agonizing fourteen hours in that dreadful market that robbed us of our childhood. This routine was not only stressful for us kids, it was also stressful for our parents. They noticed just how much it hurt the entire family, but not having actual jobs they had no choice because the flea market brought bread to our table.
An example would be for a month, my mother decided to go to China for her own enjoyment. Since she was the only person who normally cooked and cleaned the house, when she left, her responsibilities all came crashing down onto my brother and I. On school days, I discovered that I could not keep up with balancing homework and cooking every day. Another discovery I made is that my brother was not as helpful as he could have been either. There were times when I felt completely fed up with him; especially when it came to making the lunches because he would always wake up late despite me telling him to wake up earlier to help.
Many students would stop their schooling and education after the eighth grade so the students could begin to help out their parents by beginning to work and providing for the family: “For many, education ended after just eighth grade; in order to graduate, students would have to pass a final exam” (McCarthy). This style of teaching doesn’t do the best justice for the students. Within such a short period of time students had trouble being able to retain a lot of what they had learned, and also never reach their full learning potential and expanding their
we were play 29 palms that week, they are our biggest rivals after yucca and i just wanted to get yellow paint on my helmet so bad. last year when we played them a big boy crushed me and i hurt my ankle. i was really hoping he was a freshman last year so i could get some payback. I woke up the morning of the game put some makeup on and a mask that looked very human like and went to school.
I was very nervous and so was the rest of the team. In week one against an opponent that rolled us the year before, we came out and beat them in a blowout half time game. This was to many players’ surprise. We knew that was going to be our hardest game of the regular season and we felt very confident no one was going to beat us now, at least in the regular season. The season continued and it consisted of all half time blowout games.
There was another practice on Thursday, but nothing special happened there, excepted are star midfielder Luke Jayne broke his right leg, an arm and his jaw in a car accident. “Well there goes are chance of winning any of our games this tournament” said pretty much our whole team. “We still have two weeks for practices before our Washington tournament, that’s a mass amount of time to get prepared” Coach Moe said. For the last week we have been practicing on teamwork and we have been running an abundance amount every day.
We would have the tunes cranking and we would all be joking around. Coach, a short, angry, little guy didn’t like that we always fooled around, but it worked for us cause we were able to win games. However, this game was a lot bigger than most. Win and move on, lose and your season is over, and in my case my high school career would be over.
Last year almost 21 million kids nationwide are on free or reduced lunches. These kids eat their main meals at school and don’t get much while at home. During the summer this can be a disaster. While children in poverty are on long breaks, their families can’t afford to keep feeding them. This results in very non nutritional meals or no meals at all.
