With such a hectic schedule during the season I knew I always had to find time to get my school work done, whether that meant trying to do my homework on the bus rides, stay up late after games to finish projects and online assignments that I couldn't do on the go, staying in the locker room to do my work while my friends went to watch the younger teams play. I learned to make sacrifices to keep my grades up, from losing sleep for studying for a physics exam or staying home on the weekends until I finished all my dual credit assignments that had to be done online. Keeping my spot in the top 5% of my class and achieving a 5.232 GPA out of 5.0 is challenging with being involved in so many clubs and being a student
It was a dream until September came around and I learned I still had to go to school, and suddenly this new place wasn’t a paradise anymore. I made my peace with it, at least I could wear colorful clothes. I remember that I didn’t think it would be much different besides the dress code and my friends not being there, so I wasn’t too excited and didn’t expect much. Little did I know, my perception of things was going to change drastically. I was going to fourth grade and it felt like a world of difference once I stepped
My manager had asked me on Thursday that I had to work on Sunday at 3. That’s perfect I told her. Friday my father got home; he’s a trucker so I don’t see him much, we were going to spend the weekend in family and have fun. Sunday comes around after church my family and friends were going to a get-together. I rush after church and arrive to Winn Dixie, when I get there My Manager Aggressively says what are you doing here you start work at 5.
My friend's family from elementary school have me an opportunity to live with them. My grades averaged out to a C which allowed me to see my junior year in high school. My hopes of becoming a senior and finishing high school were fading fast, I knew I would not make it. But, I managed to see my first and only group home. I needed to free myself of any street activities in order to prosper.
This will not be a great four years. But, I still need to join a frat house, get my grades up even though it’s the first day, hopefully get caffeinated sometime this week I need to do get better acquainted with Patrick, I need to do something about my relationship with my professors, and still have time to write my book. What in the actual fuck? Who’s idea was this to make a place for young adults to do even more homework, assigned by the people that belong in the seventh circle of hell highly educated people. Now, what they really deserve, instead of being extremely hated by students, is several kicks directly into the side of the face a high
My old home was a standard 5 person family home, with multiple bathrooms and lots of space to never feel crowded. My parents sold that house in pursuit of giving me and my siblings an authentic experience. It sure was, we moved off grid, Which was quite a difference for us. We have no pluming, which wasn't that hard at first because I had been camping before but I never imagined my life would turn into camping trip everyday for three years. Then we have no running water, which got to me after 10 minutes of feeling dirty every single day, I remember going to bed some nights with feet that were covered in dirt, and just feeling completely discussed and filthy.
From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research. I really enjoyed working the kids. Since they were in 7th and 8th grade, it was sometimes hard to remind them how important the work we were doing was, even if it was 9am on a Saturday morning. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed working with the program.
I go home to three or more hours of homework each night to get straight A’s in all my classes including AP and college courses. Somehow I have found the time to go to sporting events, parties, and service projects where I have made so many friends that are indeed true characters of strength, joy, and goodness. I have worked very hard to obtain the
This made me want to be even more dedicated to the sport. After school, I would go to whatever slope was closest and do homework in the car, or as soon as I got home. This sometimes got in the way with my school work but I always finished everything and ended the school year with good grades. About one week after school ends, my parents saw something in the news about the winter Olympics tryouts. They showed this to me and I instantly got so excited.
I had always been a scholar from secondary education to undergraduate years due to these circumstances. I received the ‘Student Assistant Scholarship’ in my university which made me work 24-hours per week from Monday to Saturdays while maintaining excellent grades as a full-time student. My financial difficulties have encouraged me to alleviate poverty by being extensively involved in the development and humanitarian work during my summer breaks and free time. I contributed to development work by volunteering in Acts of Hope
