My Dreams: A Nightmare Story Of My Life

Improved Essays
Everyone dreams some good and of course there’s some nightmare “story of my life” to be exact, my story how I let my good dreams turn into a nightmare instantly. So there I was at the age of 8 years old I was tired of the typical school every day & trap in the house lifestyle, I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a child, but I always wanted to do something, I’ve seen my brother who I looked up to my whole life a high school soccer superstar and then you have my sisters all 4 of them doing different types of sports track, basketball and etc. So there I was the youngest in the family asking my father can I please play sports! Unfortunately, my parents weren't your typical wealthy parents, my parents was from Haiti and was very strict, hardworking …show more content…
The fame started becoming more important than the game and I haven’t even got to high school never get the big head if you haven’t reach your goal yet, although my freshman year went exactly how I expected it to go I attended Auburndale high school, all year I maintain a 3.5 GPA and of course everyone known me from my great little league experience I had. Football season was great! My first high school touchdown was against Kathleen the score was 6-7 and we was down in the 4th quarter with 5 min left in the game & we had only need 1 point, the game was already hard for me due to the fact that my uncle had passed away in Haiti the night before , So when my play got called and that pass was threw to me I knew I had to make a statement and we end up winning the game 13 – 7 , the following game we played was against Lakeland and I was the only person to score that game which was another big high school memory. I started feeling special I talk to Florida state and USF my freshman year & now there’s go that “Big Head” and there it was my nightmare slowly came and began once I started feeling …show more content…
That 3.5 GPA I had freshman year dropped to a 1.8 at Lake Region I started hanging with the wrong crowd skipping school and I eventually end up getting kicked off the football team by the end of the season , I started smoking , robbing and etc. All of a sudden by the age of 18 I went from sitting in class thinking about what D1 college I’m going to attend to sitting in the back of a police car with no bail. It’s ridiculous how quickly your dreams turn into a nightmare with just one turn around. I can’t blame anyone but myself and now I am in this cold cell with my daughter on the way and feeling like my life was over with no diploma because I dropped out. The fact that the police officer told me I probably wouldn’t see my daughter born hurt worse and I had prayed everyday till my court date luckily, god really gave me a second chance at life and letting me get out and see my daughter born that’s when I realized that I have to tighten up and get my life
