When I Was in high school, our school offered a scholarship to seniors that are going to graduate, and we will get around $1,500 if we win it. The scholarship’s named was Alumni Scholarship and it was given out to students who had G.P.A of 3.5 or higher. For that scholarship, we had to write a what getting this scholarship mean to us and what we did during high school. The deadline date was on March 23, and we had to turn it in before 3 p.m. Even though I turned it exactly on 3 p.m, I didn’t get the scholarship.
It was a sunny day afternoon when the school announced about Alumni Scholarship. Me and a couple of friends were sitting at our iPass class. When we heard the news about the scholarship, we were extremely excited. The school announced about the scholarship at the beginning of March. So, they gave us around a month to turn in the essay and form. Even though we were excited about the scholarship, we were like a sloth in finishing things. I don’t know if we are just lazy or as slow as a sloth. So, after the class, Me and my friend, Abawi discussed what we’ll write about.
I said, “ Do you think we will finished this on time?”
He replied, “ Of course, bro. Don’t worry, we got a lot time.”
“Yea, right. Let’s not worry about it.”
Then we quickly headed to Physical Education class, which is our last class of the day. We played basketball and we forgot everything we talked about after that. The next day, I totally forgot the scholarship since I was an oblivious person.
