Final Walden Writing Prompt

Power of Place


   New Gym



            find a place inside where there’s joy and the joy will burn out the pain

-Joseph Campbell

here’s no place like home, or is there.Throughout my six years at fenn, there’s been one place that has continuously made me feel like home. Basketball is  a passion of mine for a while now and the gym has never seemed to amaze me. It was the first place I met friends and the place I continue to make friends.

It all started in the fifth grade with a league called the insect league. It’s a tournament with six teams and the players are randomly picked for each team. Before this league I didn’t really have that many friends, and I was kind of shy. After the tournament I made lots of friends and discovered people I would hang out with for the rest of my fenn career. If you fall. “I’ll pick you up, but only after laughing... many people will walk In And out of your life But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart”.Ever since the insect league ended  I have been making new friends with ease. Although my team didn't win the championship this game brought us closer, and that wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the gym. I can spend about an hour just playing basketball or chilling in the gym without getting bored. Throughout my fenn career the gym has always been a place where I felt comfort, love.

A famous quote is there is no place like home, but for some there is.
