I take a deep breath my lip quivering as the wind blows on the last week of winter vacation. My family decided to go on a road trip up to Big Bear. We decided to stay the whole week. It was a snowy beautiful drive up the mountain. We stayed up in our cabin and I brought one of my friends up with me. My sisters me and my friend Ally all decided to take snowboarding lessons for four straight up days and we would be having lessons for four hours a day. The alarm clock rings and we get up.

We started about halfway and slowly went higher and higher every time we went. It was my turn to go and I was going on one of the smaller tubes that we had. I started a quarter way down the hill because I was not ready to go down from the top like my siblings. I gave myself a push and off I went.

Names are etched into the table from years prior adding a sense of charm to what some might call junk.
I’m on a mountain, I just overcame my first obstacle the chair lift. Which I thought would be harder than it was I miraculously didn’t fall or knock over the other skiers/snowboarders. I glanced back up at the gleaming mountain becoming easily distracted by the flawless stroke of every turn as the pros make their way down. I say quietly to myself “Isn’t this suppose to be a beginners hill?” They have gopros strapped to their helmets and are racing each other down.
The adrenaline rushed through my body, I could feel every heartbeat pounding in my head, people were screaming everywhere like someone got hurt or something. A tear of fear began to fall from my right eye. --- January 25th, 2016 I started a new adventure snowboarding. Haily and I arrived at Chicopee around 4:30, we placed our snowboards on the rack and went inside to buy our lift tickets. Once we opened the door to the building, we saw a whole bunch of people in line trying to buy lift tickets and renting skis or snowboards.
The Sport is a devastating road to heartbreak and failure. (I suggest, To experience sports, you have to experience heartbreak and failure - sounds a bit awkward to say “the sport”). It is the definition of it. Don't get me wrong, sports can lead to success, fame, and many other glorious things that others can't imagine. Like the money, land and the "acquaintances"
Curling is a very cold, unpopular sport that I have known since I was four years old, when my parents started a curling club. Now, I am not talking about a curling iron that makes your hair look nice. I am talking about the sport of curling that is played on ice with rocks and brooms. To me, curling does not seem like an odd, unknown sport. Yet within the world of sports, it is not very common, but generally people have heard of it because of the Winter Olympics.
My educational experience at NCC has been like climbing Mt. Everest. Climbing Mt. Everest is a challenge, and the greatest one is to leave my comfort zone by taking arduous classes. There were storms that made me want to give up, but no matter how horrendous the thunders were, I kept moving forward. These complex junctures were where I thought I could not continue advancing, but I had professors who had gone through comparable struggles and had achieved their intent, showing that I could as well. NCC made possible to defeat my struggles.

Most people learn how to ride a bike when they are younger. However, at the age of eleven years old I still did not know how to ride a bike. I thought about learning many times, but I would always change my mind. Before I learned how to ride a bicycle, I always felt excluded. If my friends asked me if I wanted to ride their bicycles around the block,I would have to decline the offer, without mentioning why I could not go.
With completing the first rock climbing class at Penn State, I was able to benefit from a variety of new things learned from the class, in addition to refreshing my memory on things that I already learned. This class has taught me several important life lessons that I will remember for as long as I live. The biggest hurdle in this class for was time management. I am and have always been a procrastinator, therefore completing the required five extra two hour visits to Reading Rocks and additional hour per week in the gym was challenging for me. It did not help that class this semester, required a lot of time outside of class.
Birds were chirping; flowers swaying in the wind. Warm rays of light hit my face; I stirred awake rubbing the dust out of my eyes. We packed our stuff for the final event of this holiday at the theme park. Everything seemed fine. I got onto the rollercoaster with my family to have some extreme fun.
A warm morning, sun shining with a slight breeze, and calm waters; the perfect day to learn how to water ski. I had never been water skiing before, I barely knew what it was, I was anxious to say in the least. I stood on the dock as my parents maneuvered the boat into the water, I’ve never been so uncertain. My family reassured me that everything would be okay as I was strapped up my life jacket. I stood on the edge of the boat, apprehensive, but I had to jump in the water, it was now or never.
