It all seemed great, but was I ready or would I ever be ready to see people in their worst days? It took me a whole year in college to realize that firefighting was something I did not want to pursue. Desperately looking for a new major, I started to consider teaching, but purely for selfish reasons. However, somewhere during my second year of college, there was a significant spark that led me to want to pursue teaching for a different reason. In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial.
“The Legacy of Terry Fox’s Dream” is an article published by CBC news about Terry Fox. They tell his story about before and after the marathon of hope. Fox is diagnosed with cancer at a young age, but nothing stopped him from doing the activities he loved. A quote states, “He spent most of his time falling down and picking himself off the floor. He kept going, though, and after more than a year, and over 4,800 kilometres of running…”.
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 told everyone that i was an exchange student and would only be there for two days.
I made my first touchdown after like five minutes of attempting to figure out how to play this. I don 't know how boys appreciate this game, to me it 's too difficult to understand and it 's simply not girl material. Presently I know why I was so irritated with Luke 's football games, I don 't understand what the heck is going on. That touchdown that I recently made, that was just lucky and it probably won 't happen
My primary position on the junior varsity team was quarterback. Although we had many outstanding athletes, our first season was far from successful; however, my eighth and ninth grade years, we went undefeated in football. In middle school, I continued my baseball career with the school; yet, my desire to be on the diamond shifted more towards football. Sports brought a glorious feeling into my life in middle school; on the other hand, not everything turned out the way I had expected, for a tragic event changed my life forever. Something horrendous occurred to my close friend, Payton Mitchell.
5 years of hiding it and the sixth year was the first time I told someone I cut and the first time I actually felt a weight hop off my chest. The cutting was keeping the pain away from me mentally, hiding the words Doctor S said to me as an eight year old kid, to this day I can still feel it burning inside me like a fresh cut or scrape. It was hard to control my anger and my aggression, so that's when my parents looked into football for me, they thought it would help my anger out and at the time they hadn't a clue that I cut, so I went through football. They were right football did help me a lot to get my anger out, now I can't wait for football season to begin so I can get anger from the summer and from school out, during practices, but then the anger became worse as time went on, once I was 12 I started to wrestle, because I wanted to get one more chance at wrestling, and lose weight so I can hopefully get rid of his voice saying "either get healthy or die" repetitively like a broken record in my
My Collapse and Restitution When people see me walking through the halls of school, or walking down the street they may see me as an underachiever, or even a slacker; if they had seen me last year or the year before perhaps they would have been right. My Freshman and Sophomore year I struggled to pass many of my classes. I had begun to give up on anything school related for the purpose of "enjoying my youth while I still could". Back in November of my Freshman year my Uncle Gary passed away suddenly of a heart attack which made me begin to realize the importance of living a full life and doing what is important to you. To tell the truth, I despise the idea of becoming someone who works in an office for the entirety of their life in a dead
The week before the homecoming game, we found out that our starting senior libero got sick with Mononucleosis, which meant that she couldn’t participate in any physical activity. 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.
Most importantly, I learned how to persevere. On the first day of band camp, I went home after five hours of rehearsal and thought I was dying. Everything ached: my legs from fifty-yard sprints, my arms from burpees followed by flag technique, and even my scalp from the too-high ponytail I had subjected my hair to. The next morning, I crawled out of bed and limped back to the field with a newfound determination. I was exhausted and discouraged, but I wouldn’t let that stop me from succeeding.
6th grade football tryouts It was a humid day in the middle of August and football tryouts were tomorrow.It was 6th grade and I was really nervous,It wasn't because I had never played football ,I had played football for three years prior to that.I was nervous because it was my first time playing school football and I had just transferred schools because the school I was going to be nasty,wretched,and unkempt. When I got home from school my mom had gotten me a brand new white and black glossy chin guard and a juicy and sour lemon flavored mouthguard.My mom also gave me a talk when I told her I was nervous.She told me that I was a great athletic kid who could do anything he puts his mind to. I asked my mom to make a big breakfast for me and boy did she deliver.I woke up,got in the shower,got dressed with my favorite blue water
Six weeks later after my broken leg I was finally ready to play again. But it’s already the championship game. My team, The Cobras have not made it to the championship until this year. To bad I didn’t help them get here. The Smoove twins Chris and Jrue have played outstanding Trevon and Andre were playing good as well but Robert and Tyron weren 't playing that good so we needed one more good guy to make this team great... And I was that guy.
Oftentimes he would brag about me to anyone who listened. Like most children I dreamed how happy he would be to see me go to college, start a career and have a family of my own. All of that changed on September 9th, 2011 when I found out my dad had been diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Given that I was only 13 years old this diagnosis was absolutely heartbreaking. I no longer enjoyed thinking about the future because I didn’t know how long my dad would be in it; ALS patients can survive for a few short months or in rare cases decades.
