Over the past months I've learned so many things, made so many new friendships, and made so many memories. Within these months I've gained massiveresponsibility, Ive accomplished so many things with trial and error but I still kept going and this is how I did it all.
I first had to get over myself and realize that it is okay to need help from time to time and to be wrong like the character Alexis from The last time we said goodbye. Alexis realized that no matter how hard she tries she cant be strong forever and that's okay. The first time I realized this was when I was working on my leap psp. I didn't really understand the concept and I refused to ask for help because of my pride. Time went by and the due date for the psp was getting closer and closer and I still had no clue on what to do. It wasn't until a week before the psp was due where I set my pride aside and asked my friends for help. They helped me understand what I had to do and what the prompt was asking for and the day after I began working. Although I did get the psp done in time I was really stressed and exhausted when I was done. I really don't recommend trying to do a month worth's of homework in less than a week, it will destroy you.
I learned that sometimes its okay to ask for help and set your pride aside, especially when doing a school project.
At the beginning of the year if I was faced with a problem, a challenge, or even a simple math worksheet I would always try to find a way to either avoid solving the problem or ignoring it until the project is due. I was exactly like Prez from the book To life on earth. Prez had a hard time with being organized and getting things done and so he started doing lists with all the things he had to get done and so I figured that I should try it and I did and it was a life saver. At first I thought it was going to be challenging to not loose the paper until I realized I could do the list on my phone on notes and it was the easiest thing ever and I even set reminders on my phone to where it would remind me to do the assignment so I wouldn't forget. Now I get more than half of my assignments done at least 3 or 2 days before it is due. I realized that its not that hard to keep an organize life style if you just put effort and time into it.
My parents and I have always had this weird thing about me being on my phone. They would always ask me what I would be doing on it and why I was on it so much and half of the time I would either be doing school work or just texting some friends. As time goes on being asked the same questions over and over again gets pretty aggravating , I get that my parents were just trying to look out for me and make sure I wasn't doing anything bad on my phone but I just wanted them to be able to trust me and to not worry so much. Just like how Cole from Spirit Bear. Cole wanted a change in his life and he wanted people to be able to trust him by simply using his words. Cole didn't want to give a whole explanation he just wanted people to believe him. I wanted exactly that, not to mention my parents were never this hard on my older sister. I talked to my parents and said that im a responsible adolescent who knows right from wrong and that I want their trust, my parents were very understanding and told me that they would quit giving me such a hard time but that they still worry about me and what I do on my phone.This made me realize that all i have to do is use my words and say how i feel because how would I have known what they were gone say if I never even asked them about it.
Since I was going to become a 7th grader that meant that I got the opportunity to be in athletics. I was thrilled with the idea of me being able to be part of a team but then reality hit me and I realized that if I did join athletics and if I was planning on being in one of the teams I would have to quit soccer for at least a season. This was a very hard decision for me since I've been playing soccer for half of my life. Days went by and I still couldn't make uo my mind, I mean I love soccer but I would love to be part of a school team as well and experience new things but it was just very hard for me. I asked for several of peoples opinions and the one thing they all had in common was that they said I should do what I really want. I asked all of my friends and they all said I should take a break from soccer and try something new and so I decided to sign up for athletics and take a short break from soccer. Now in the present I'm in soccer and athletics. I feel like it was a good idea to take a little break from soccer since now it is very hard trying to handle to do soccer outside of school and in school. Im constantly sore and tired but in the end its all worth because it makes me very happy.
