I was even able to make the SACS Varsity cheer team, which is an unforgettable experience knowing that they are one of the best in town. Every single accomplishment has been worked for with hours and hours of preparation, and even years in experience. Nobody would ever imagine that my first year trying out as a cheerleader I had been rejected. Although I did fail at cheer my first try, it only fueled me to try out again the following year. After weeks and
While I have various interests and talents that have me involved in numerous activities and clubs, the role which best defines me is my involvement with cheerleading. I cheer in High School and on a competitive team at Cheer Athletics which required a significant amount of my childhood to train to reach the highest competitive level. While High School cheer is mostly social, competitive cheer is my passion as it requires significant tumbling, jumping, stunting, and dance related skills that are fine-tuned over many years of training. This hard core training has taught me many important life skills that I believe will allow me to be successful in all aspects of my life. I started competing at Cheer Athletics when I was six years old as I
Zig Ziglar once said, “When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that's when your passion is born.” When you find something that you're good at and that you love, you’re driven to do it for the rest of your life. For me, it's cheerleading. I’ve learned so many things, not only about myself, but about other people and what I want in life from cheerleading. It’s safe to say being a cheerleader has impacted every single area in my life, for the better. If you would've told my ten year- old self that today I would be a cheerleader and love every single minute of it, she would’ve laughed and then probably thrown herself off of a cliff.
It was a late, around nine o’clock, on Saturday April 20, 2013 when a few of us from Bear River High School decided to go to Senor Frogs to celebrate Olivia’s birthday. Olivia and I use to be best friends back in elementary school that is until we transferred to high school and she destroyed my reputation over jealousy. I didn’t care much for celebrating her birthday, however, I had been in love with her boyfriend Tyler ever since I laid eyes on him freshman year. Nonetheless, Olivia made sure he never knew who I was. I went to every school event, every pep rally, and every party just so that he would notice me, but in the end I always went home unnoticed.
All the while making new friends, and having a great time. I have worked and practiced extremely hard and put months of preparation into this competition for it has been a dream of mine since I was 7 years old, and if crowned I will spend the next year representing the beautiful state of
After dropping my daughter off at homecoming, I drove thirty minutes back to work and picked up my laptop to please my neighbor. After all this running around, I had forgotten about the plans my mother had made for us that night. Even though I tried my best to please everyone, I ended hurting the people who loved me the
The summer of 2011 was coming to a close. The University of California Berkeley summer program had come to an end, and the thought of leaving my friends was upsetting. I had developed deep and meaningful relationships with people from all over the world and I was reluctant to leave. I had even met a girl, who my sixth grade brain thought was the love of my life. The thought of missing my friends was selfishly overpowering, and it drained the enthusiasm away from seeing my family for the first time in four weeks.
An allstar cheerleader named Patty was at the top of her game until she fell. Patty was without oxygen for almost an hour. To this day Patty has to communicate by blinking her eyes. (Ling) Cheerleading should be a sport because it matches the definitions of sport terms. Sport-an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature.
When we arrived in Georgia, we slept overnight, then the next day, we had that family visit. It was hard to keep the secret, especially every time my Aunt brought the topic up. After staying over for two nights, everyone was all packed up to leave in the morning. We had to leave before
For high school kids, longer school days mean longer school nights. If a student is involved in sports, the school gets out at 4:15 p.m., then practice goes until 6:30 p.m. After two or more hours of homework, every hour of the day is completely eaten up. Working after school is also an exhausting option for high schoolers with the long school days of the four-day week. Pros As I mentioned before, the four-day model has been used mostly in rural schools — that is, schools that don’t receive a lot of funding. My school switched to four days to cut spending.
With her three-week-old daughter in tow, Emma, she left California and moved back home to New Hampshire six years ago to create a new life. Higgins and her daughter moved in with her family for a year or so. Even with family available during the day to lend a hand, the nights were particularly tough. “There were many nights when I didn’t sleep at all because I was the only one there, and then I would be up all day with her,” said Higgins. “The sheer exhaustion was overwhelming.
It also doesn’t help that her uncle, who was recently evicted from his apartment, is staying in her room which makes it harder for Kendall to focus. Kendall attended basketball practice for a couple weeks, and before she knew it, her first game of the season was right around the corner. As she became more and more excited for the game, she lost her focus. In Math, her first class of the day, Kendall didn’t acknowledge that her teacher, Ms. Crigler, was speaking. As Kendall talked to her best friend, Ivy, about their first game, she began to slightly infuriate Ms. Crigler.
In the book “Catching Jordan” by Miranda Kenneally: Jordan makes many decisions that real-life teenagers have to make every day. She has to choose who to trust, love, and hate throughout the whole book. Jordan’s decisions also affect everyone around her, even her family. A huge decision that she has to make that comes up numerous times in the book is where to go to college to continue her career in football. This is a decision that many juniors and seniors in high school have to make in real life, sometimes sooner than the last two years of high school.
With practices ranging from four to five hours a day, each member puts all of their energy into their choreography. “Usually two to three hours before we compete, we have a quick rehearsal to have everything fresh in our mind. The team then splits into half, so one half can spin saber while the others practice flags. We spend about an hour and a half then move on to swing flag,” stated sophomore Jessy He when asked about how they prep for competition. Due to the long practices, the members are usually exhausted, but proud of each other and how hard they have worked.
CNA Certification I was really looking forward to getting my job at Winner Regional Long Term Care. This was the summer after my freshmen year and I had just turned 16. My mom and my friend Mollie really made me believe I would have a lot of fun while helping people. To be able to get this job, I took classes to become a Certified Nursing Aid. This was a very long procedure that took about three months.
