I will not sugarcoat anything, my sickness scarred me in more ways than one. I used to be really good at sports, I loved to play soccer, I used to play on a team. Getting sick ruined any chance I had to be good, I used to be a goalie, I used to kick the ball and stop it without shaking but ever since I got sick, I was never the same. I can play, but not very well, I fall all the time during any contact sport and when I get hurt, I give up.
However, I do play baseball, and that is one of the best things that I do; I love to bat. I love to feel that power when I’m up there focusing on one thing-the ball. I love running the bases and I love feeling the rush. Sports are my kryptonite, I love to play and not watch them, I can’t just cheer on someone without actually wanting to do it, unless I’m hurt then I’ll make an exception.
I never liked gym, I never got it and it never paid any attention to me, there was one time my gym teacher in the 6th grade had us spike a volleyball. I never could get the ball over the net unless I actually threw it. I was never
active after I got sick and I think that’s what really tortures me. I love sports, but I want to do them every day, not just once in awhile. My baseball is two months, May and June and although I love it, I need more. I hate not being active, it’s the worst feeling, I hate feeling too lazy, I hate feeling like I’ll never be good enough to do anything.
One thing to know about me: I never quit, I always finish the task at hand, I am always one step ahead of the game, I never miss anything, and I’ll probably be seen as uncool but I like to be organized and ahead; that’s just me.
When I got accepted into college, it was the best day of my life, I am so excited that I will be going to Salem State and I am very excited that I will get to live there. After persuading my parents dozens of times and promising them that I will study my ass off, they finally agreed and I am so happy!! I am majoring into the field of early childhood education to become a kindergarten teacher; that’s my biggest dream of all.
My life is worth living, not to quote a Justin Bieber song, but I will. “Life is worth living, so live another day.”
He was another major part of my childhood, I loved JB when I was growing up. My family used to tease me all of the time because they thought he sang like a girl. I said “well you don’t understand him and I do.” I plastered his posters all over my wall, my door, and my floor; yes I put his face on my floor. He did not stay there for very long, the posters kept ripping and I got very disappointed. Still, to this day, I love Justin Bieber and I will always be a belieber, his music is amazing, his messages are very powerful, take Purpose for example, his message at the end to let him try to
make things better. If you gave Justin a chance, I assure you, you’ll love him, just like me. He’s a real person and deserves a chance, he deserves the love that your giving every other celebrity out there.
If I ever got the chance to meet Justin Bieber in real life, I think I would faint; in excitement!!! Now if I had a chance to become friends with him, I would feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Like any other girl, my wish when I was sick to meet him but he was still new that I wouldn’t think he would come. Now that I’m better, that is still my wish, but it’s more fun and not that serious. He was my idol when I was younger, he was my inspiration; still is. I put my family first as my idols though, my family is very important to me, they always pick me up when I fall down, and they never let me down. Whenever, somebody asks me to hang out but I have to see my family that day, I will always choose family; well now I will.
Life is full of miracles and the people within them. You have to treasure each day that goes by, you never know what will happen in the next.
