However, one of my best friends, Dyani, had her mom tell the team’s coach that I would be attending one of their practices - I was forced to go. Surprisingly, however, I was able to keep up with the other girls at the practice, even though they were all much better than me. When told to do a drill, I did my best and executed it fairly well. I did better than I had ever done at roller hockey. One aspect I thought made a difference for me from roller was the ice and the size of the rink.

I truly believed that I already lost. Regardless, I went into the audition room, did my absolute best, and came out searching for a way to console myself. My mom took me out to eat afterwards, but instead of conversing I incessantly checked my phone every other minute for the results. Nearly an hour later, just after I arrived home, I checked the results and the trombones who made it were posted; there my name stood listed as the third best trombone. Personally, I am not the type to get excited over positive results, but this occasion was remarkably unique.
An experience of my own that involves a musical moment that brings a memory is a song called, “Hokey Pokey.” This is a nursery rhyme that children learn in elementary school. This song is an example of a musical moment that brings a memory to me because when I was in kindergarten, this song was played every day during dismissal time. While all of the students were waiting to be dismissed from the class the teacher would put this song every day. Meanwhile, the “Hokey Pokey” song played we would all get in a circle and start dancing to this song as a group. This memory brings a joyful moment because I would dance with my classmates that I had then.

This idea is interpreted to us through Marge Piercy’s “Barbie Doll.” In this poem, Piercy uses imagery, simile, and symbolism to illustrate the theme of loving yourself. The poem begins with an introduction of a common life for a young child. She plays with her dolls, stoves, irons, as well as lipstick, just as any other young girl.
As a child, ballet was not just an extracurricular activity, it was my identity. I started homeschooling after the fourth grade to devote my young life to this passion, trading a traditional grade-school education for a daily schedule replete with private lessons, technique classes, and extended rehearsals. My days started early and ended late but I adored every moment. As I progressed in the discipline, I would move around the country—from Aspen to Boston to D.C.—enrolling in prestigious full-time academies to train with world-renowned masters of the art. From age six to sixteen, ballet was all I wanted, it was all I knew.

Math-Puzzled When I was younger , my parents always told me “ Never give up, no matter how hard things get.” That’s something that I still haven 't forgotten.
