Choices

 

 

 

Choices shape everyone’s life and what they do, I have choices everyday, some good, some bad. There are always a lot of choices to make, some are good some are bad. But as a 14 year old it’s hard to see the line between the 2. Some choices are easier to make than others and some have an outcome you may no have wanted, but the real challenge is living with the choices you make. It was an average day at the Fenn School, When Mrs McCarthy called my name. I realized the choice I had made was a bad one when I ended up in Mrs McCarthy’s office with a Tuesday Afternoon. When Liam, Luke, Kevin and I got to sports study, we knew we wanted to have some fun. We found a box of markers on Mrs Stiga’s shelf we knew we had a choice to make. Snapping those markers was like stepping on bubble wrap, satisfying. We knew the choice we had made has a bad one, but as 13 year olds, we didn’t care. Because we didn’t care we thought it would be even better to film ourselves doing it and post it on Instagram. A few days later when Mrs McCarthy called my name the first thing that came to my mind is that bad choice I had made, I was right. I ended up in her office the next Tuesday ready to serve my Tuesday Afternoon. Breaking markers was fun; breaking markers was also bad; but life is all about living with the choices you make. I had to think of it as a learning experience and something that had taught me more about me. Everyone in life has so many choices that can change their lives, it’s all about living with the choices you make and learning from them.
