Personal Narrative: Tell What You Know

Improved Essays
Tell what you knew: My first day of high school seemed like the beginning of the end to me. I wasn’t really that popular, I didn’t really have the last name to fit in with the town of Marathon, and many other reason to be afraid of what might happen to me based on what I heard from others and just the plain fears. Most of my freshman year was just me trying to stay out of people 's way, with everything that has happened to me it seemed like every day was a battle to not get my head in the wrong spot. Along with that my grades weren’t the best either. I was lucky to get a B in most classes, most of the time class was the last place I really wanted to be that day along with the idea that I was never as good as the kids around me. I thought that …show more content…
The friends that I made may have changed everything that I thought about people, opened up a change for the best. The friends that I did make are because of what my interests and and also the sports that I played also. The life experiences that have really changed everything that had happened to me. Losing family members because of cancer and not see the other half of my family because they could really care less about us. Cancer is one of those things that you can control if you catch it fast enough. My grandma past away after beating two different cancers and dieing because of the third one which was hard to watch from my point of view. The other side of the family thing, I really have no idea what is going to happen because of the different opinions on why we don’t see each other that much or even when we do see them is why they happen to mention why we don’t talk. What I do outside of school has changed the way I am today being the mostly positive person I’m, sometimes I have the problem of letting unknown thought come into my head and create a problem for what seems like a long time which bugs me, but I have to realise sometime, bigger problem sometimes become the building block for the rest of my …show more content…
The friends that I have made have opened me up to see what I really haven’t seen at all. Kaden is a goofball most of the time, but he has really affected what had happened to life. In freshman year I really didn’t talk to him at all and he was a good friend back in middle school but freshman year I really didn’t do much to change me life so I kind of changed to way what had happened and to that effect I really didn’t make any friends or do much to keep the friends that were good to me. Sophomore year was a little different because I went out for football like I did in middle school. I should 've never took the year off, everything was way quicker, the game is way faster and practice is more of a fight because anyone at anytime can jump and take your spot you’ve earned. The year was hard, but with making friend that had been in football the year before did help me through the tough times I had. Kaden just keep my head in straight and created what I thought could be a good stepping stone. Junior year he went over to varsity and I was a special teamer this last year which got me some playing time and really created something to build on for this coming year. Kaden was the one guy who tried to get me out my comfort zone, and somewhat worked. I see this as a bigger stepping stone for what had happened to

    I took every game personal, I knew I’d never get the chance to play these teams again so my mission was to inflict as much pain as humanly possible. It didn 't take long for teams to learn that I was not to be messed with. As a senior playing my 5th year of football I knew my hard work and preparation would carry me through every game.

    The new and unfamiliar setting caused me to be even more quiet than usual, and in the first few days of school, most people did not even notice I was there. The one class where I was able to be myself was debate. At first, I was terrified to try the activity because I did not think public speaking would be my forte. Later on, even my teacher admitted that he was skeptical of the level of success I would have in the activity because I was so quiet. By the end of the first week, I had fallen in love with the activity.…
