Rudy decided to quit and that is when the custodian stopped Rudy and gave him a pep talk about not walking away from your dreams. Rudy had spent so much time working hard so that he could just get into the school. When you have worked so hard and got so close to achieving your dream, it is really hard to watch your last opportunity fade away. But the custodian knew that giving up was never the right answer. About two years ago I was a recreational dancer and all I wanted was to go onto the competitive team.
To be an outsider means that you or someone else has joined some form of group and has had no previous experience, such as, going to a new school where you don’t know anyone and have never really been there before. I have been an outsider many times in my life, but the one that sticks out the most was when I went to a forensic summer camp this past summer. Since the main summer camp I had gone to the previous year had lost funding, I decided to go to multiple camps over the summer. Since the middle school camp was full and since I was going into eighth grade, they decided to put in with the high schoolers. I was very nervous for the first few days, but I gradually got to know people when the counselors put us into groups for different activities.
He also explains how he’s seen her go through some good men. He finishes his statement by explaining how “It was clear that Mommy was no longer interested in getting married again” (McBride chapter 2). She saw so many good men leave her life that she was tired of losing another, therefore she depended on herself to raise her 12
They were all chatting amongst themselves before the coach began practice. Practice lasted about two hours, during which I pushed myself to keep up. The team, I had realized, consisted of kids that had been doing this their whole lives. I found myself comparing everything I did to the others in my lane. My dives seemed sloppy, my turns were a mess, and my stamina ran out quickly.
The doctor said that my voice went out because I spend too much time practicing and eventually my throat got sore. The doctor also said that It's only going to take a few days. I was not ready for this because I had the most important audition of my life. The next day I went to school and told my friends about my situation. My friends included Lucas,Alex, and Maya.
That makes me think that I am not always going to be with my friends and I have to participate in group to finish group work. This year I have big senior project to do and I have group presentation. My group wasn’t participate in group presentation. I was so stress because it was group work but I am happy that I can convince them to finish the group presentation but it take time. I convice them by telling story like look us now we are in United State and look all we have just look back our life back in our country.
As I had to deal with people, it was hard for them to accept me for who I am. It was like it is the first time the lived with disable student. I became hot topic for a month and a half. All of my friends were no longer in high school. It was like starting over again.
After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up but It was not impossible. I didn 't try enough because I already thought my grade was too far gone and that rolled over into the next semester. After the school year I was very disappointed in myself. I never have failed a class in my life but here I was applying for summer school. So I redirected my disappointment and decided to excel at summer school.
Every summer i’d take many courses to advance and exceed in my classes, my parents having some knowledge about high school believed at one point that I had taken a summer course to make up a failing class due to the fact of how my older brother struggled during his years. Not being able to do much during the summer also limited my time to having fun and doing what I liked. Community service hours were never mentioned to me until my sophomore year surprisingly and I had a plethora of hours piled up to my normal schedule, up until now I have been able to do most of those hours but if I were told sooner I’d be done by now. Experiences with my community have also opened up connections to work-related material and internships for the near future. I’ve been living in Atwater for at least more than six years and am surprised with all the time I’d been here, I now know much about the area I raised
In my first year, I was struggling for the first semester, I had a hard time with my roommates who I had to live with, I had no choice, I couldn’t really pick. I didn’t mind them, but they would always have these huge and loud ridiculous parties, and I hate parties. Soon, though, two of them left, thankfully the two I disliked, the other two were fine, one of them similar to me as in he hated the parties, and soon two way better people moved in, who I became close friends with, and I still am to this day, Those two are the only “friends” I really consider myself having. They hated parties, they had VERY similar personalities, and we became really good
What was difficult for me was that after my dismissal I immediately began applying for jobs and handing out my resume. Went on many interviews and made top 5 and then top two. I could not find a job, I would make first, second, and third process interviews but could never get a position. I had assumed it was because of my education, I did finish high school but just a few semesters of college. I focused on my family that started really young, before I graduated high school, I had my first child and in my early twenties had two more.
I thought I was going to make the team easily. After the tryout, a few days later the coaches sent a email out to all the parents showing who made the team and who didn’t. I read the list name by name, the farther down the list I went the more worried I got. Once I hit the last name I was devastated, I didn’t see
About a week and a half in advance we got told we were going to Chamberlain to sing. The teachers had already planned it out, but we were not told until later. Before we went go to Chamberlain we had to learn and practice the songs. It was really fun practicing the songs because we got to do warmups and play around with the songs. After about a week and a half of practice we knew the songs well enough to go on our trip.
After that season I was more motivated than I have ever been. I was determined to go all out for my first varsity season. I convinced my dad to sign me up for a gym membership. At first, I wasn’t taking it that seriously, I would go around 3 times a week. But later on I got myself a partner to train with me and we pushed each other to our limits.
The most significant challenge I faced in my life was during my sophomore year of high school during which the music director had quit. This caused the band to have no one to direct it or teach us. This caused the bulk of the effort to be pushed to the few instructors we had and to us the students. This challenge had been present throughout the summer, the marching season, and the concert season. During the summer, we were informed that the current music director was stepping down and that there would be no one to teach us.
