It was extremely difficult to plan and lead these rehearsals because I had no experience doing it. My band director always made it look easy and I learned very quickly that it was not as easy as it seemed. Planning a rehearsal required a lot of forethought because I had to know what areas of the music or drill that the band needed the most practice with. Being drum major taught me an appreciation that I did not have as a child for the job that my band director performs on a daily basis. In order to be drum major, I had to stop being a child with no rhythm and become the metronome of the band.
Selflessness is a trait I have on and off the court. I will put myself after everyone; to me, another person’s happiness is more important than my own happiness. Being selfless means being the best teammate there is. The article “13 Life Lessons I’ve Learned from Being an Athlete” states, “As for selflessness, being on a team has taught me that you 're not the center of attention. Even if you 're the best player, there 's no glory when you 're at the top when you 're by yourself.
The thing that I carry with me is doubt, doubt in myself as an athlete and as a team player. When is it ever a good time to make a life changing decisions? When is it ever the right decision? The doubt that surrounds my every decisions and long term decisions makes me doubt my every move. I carry doubt for the reason that when you’re a captain every player on the team looks up to you, they challenge you to make the right decision for the entire team.
Push-ups are one of the most basic and important exercises that you can do. However, too many people don't do them the right way and therefore either can't or don't want to do them. There's no need to be afraid of the push-up! The push-up is your friend and will help you to get into great shape. From my training sessions, I find the push-up, along with the pull-up, to be the bane of most people's fitness existence.
Years of vigorous training reached a plateau, baffling my coaches and shattering my drive. Ultimately, my natural aptitude for gymnastics proved fruitless in the face of training. The task of competing loomed over me like a mountain. A hulking mountain with jagged peaks, surrounded by storm clouds and crashing thunder. A rotten idea began to surface in my mind.
When I first discovered that I had ADHD I absolutely hated it because I realized I was different from everyone else. I saw it as a weakness that was holding me back from achieving my dreams. Since I have come to learn to accept it, I now know how to make use of it and use it to my advantage. As I’ve grown up I know see I have the strength within myself to overcome this. I love how I take interest in things some people generally don’t find interesting.
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments. There were times that I wanted to quit, but that was not
A legacy is a person’s reactions to a name. For example, when someone hears my name, I want to be remembered as a hardworking, kind, and helpful peer. My legacy doesnt want to be negative, therefore striving to succeed in my eighth grade year is the best. If I were to leave a great legacy, I will have definitely impact the lives of many people.Therefore, people would be dedicated to their school work and understand the importance of being educated. My parents would be so proud of me and also proud that they raised me.
I can’t do everything other people have the capability of doing in the gym, and to me it 's embarrassing. I have got picked on for having asthma and it 's not a good feeling, but I keep trying and I do what I want no matter how hard it may be. I take it one step at a time, evolving
I have always hated writing about myself, and I always dreaded assignments in school where I had to describe myself. I always wanted to avoid doing these assignments because I did not want to sound narcissistic, or self-absorbed. I dislike people like that now, because I used to be one of those people. It took many lessons learned before I humbled myself; I am still learning to humble myself today with recent experiences I have had. Although I hate to write about myself, I have always liked to reflect on myself.
No one can avoid failure. No person has ever been 100% successful at everything. But people hate to talk about their failures, and try to avoid it at all cost. Having participated in the interscholastic sport of wrestling, I have been given many opportunities to succeed or fail. I generally succeed most of the time.
Book Banning I think that the root problem with the book banning/burning was the level of maturity in the certain individuals affected. Both of these books were not made for children. I think the people in charge that banned Mr Vonnegurt’s book could have done better with their solution and the people at the Biloxi school came up with an adequate solution to the problem. An example is the book by Kurt Vonnegut, but they were still taught in the classroom. Then the directors of the school destroy his work of art because it was not kid friendly, even though they were the ones to put it into the school curriculum.
He says, “If parents were uncomfortable with this decision, they could place their child in a different local school.” This is another made up scenario being used to back up his point. This is another flaw in his article. Michael Cantrell, of “Should Students Be Allowed to Pray in School” made some valid points, but also made many errors. It is important to back up claims with facts and it is pivotal to not use logical fallacies. It is also important not to waffle back and forth.
Banning books also filters realism. Parents surely cannot expect to shelter their children from the real world forever. These books might have have violence and torture and bad people, but so does the real world and kids should know what to face if they have to when they grow up. If you read about people with sad, terrible lives, you will feel more grateful for what you have and you will be a better person. If you don 't about the dark and sadness of the world, you can 't know to appreciate the happiness and light.
It haunted me to the point I didn 't hear my dads usual commentary on my game. I kept thinking about it until I came to the conclusion that if I couldn 't play as fast as I used to I would have to make up for it in some way. The next day at practice I watched some of the defenders that were typically slower than most of our offenders to see how they overcame their lack of speed. I saw that a lot of them played tighter on their respective opponents and didn 't allow them a chance to turn at all so a foot race couldn 't be started. I tried that tactic but couldn 't quite get it.
