    My Sophomore Year

    • 401 Words
    • 2 Pages

    During my Sophomore year of High School, I was struggling with keeping my grades up and depression. I had no motivation that whole year. It was right after the start of the second semester that my parents approached me and made a plan to help my grades. They didn’t know that I was depressed. I never got any help with my depression from anyone but myself. It was unimaginably hard to dig myself out of the hole I was in and required an extreme amount of dedication. I realize that my Sophomore year does not reflect a driven student and I hope you can see that it does not reflect who I truly am. I was still depressed until the summer and I began to lift 4 days a week with the football team. Our coach who was in charge of the lifting program always…

    I have never really thought of myself as a leader, because I was usually quiet and self centered. Sophomore year was the year I truly became assertive and controlling that made me become a “leader”. Besides being challenged in academics and music, my role in sports became more defined that year. Track season during spring started out fine as everything was relaxing and looking good. With a small core of discus and shotput throwers, around three out of six of us were looking to go big. We learned…

    In high school my most outstanding example of a time when I set an example as a student leader was my sophomore year in high school. My sophomore year of high school I was brought up to the varsity soccer team, the team that I was on was not extremely hard working and or dedicated. As a sophomore I was afraid to stand up and verbally tell the entire team that we need to step it up, or we are going to have a horrible season, so I decided to make my statement apparent by my actions. First, I…

    The start of sophomore year was an off to go a good start I was in honors classes, getting over my ex, and had the best friends.

    Sophomore Year Reflection

    • 777 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Sophomore year has been an interesting year so far. The first day I walked into AP World History (aka WHAP) confident, but slightly nervous for the workload to come. It was just an intro-first day type of thing, but Chapter 1 had already been assigned. I remember thinking “All ready? It’s just the first day of school!” But of course, it was an AP class, and I was now an AP student. Chapter 1 was about twenty pages… but it was so. Much. Content. The chapter took me three hours to read and I had…

    And after failing to make the soccer team my sophomore year, my race coach decided it was time to move up to something bigger and faster, we decided on dirt track racing in the stock truck division because it was different just like me. Moving up meant I had to find sponsors, my favorite sponsor happens to be the small town barbeque shack because he is a part of my community and it is incredible to feel the communities support. I also had to get to work on my truck, it was a lot of hard work and…

    Sensory Details - Sight - Sound - Touch - Taste - Smell Today is the day that i become a high school student and i’m a little nervous. Being a Freshman is something everyone dreads on the first day. The sun is still hot and bright from summer weather, i can feel the sweat dripping off my forehead. The big yellow bus pulls up to my stop and dust starts flying in the air. Once I step on, the recent stench of old, smelly, dirty socks hits me like a train. Every year the smell becomes stronger…
