The Football Field
A special place is where we go to get away from life for a while. My special place is with my brothers on the football field. There is no greater excitement when I get let out of school, go down to the locker room, and get mentally prepared for a great day of football. There is no worse feeling than hearing the coach say “get on the line” in football practice, that can only mean one thing, sprints, but we do sprints to better ourselves, and to have the best feeling in the entire world, a win on game day. As I stepped off the bus onto the Nobles campus, the excitement started to boil over. I knew Nobles was going to be a good team, and as I put on my clunky pads, I felt it, it was the greatest feeling, I was about to play the game I love so much.
Bonding Over Football
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
The paramount thing in life is friendship. Friendship plays a big role in my life especially because my dad is my best friend and I can always trust him. My dad will always be there for me even if my school friends turn their back on me. I can always trust that my dad will stand by me no matter what through thick and thin.
Family is people who love each other unconditionally. My favorite part about my family is how we all gather during the holidays. Gathering with my family is something I look forward to the whole year. Even though I don’t see my cousins very much, when we do see each other we always welcome each other with open arms.
My poem is All Over a Damn Wafer By: Elizabeth Acevedo. The theme is regret when Xiomara is regretting not participating in communion last time so she has to face the consequences.
Dear, Arthur Peeters
Hey Arthur, how's life going? For me life is pretty good right now. I have a football game tomorrow, not soccer but football, American football. I’m not sure how much you know about it but that’s not the point. I heard you’re pretty good at soccer and was wondering what team you play for? Well that’s enough about you, I am reading this book right now and I think it’s pretty good.
The Clash of The Fast Food Chains
All I know is that when I needed McDonald’s, McDonald’s was there for me.
The Big Mac is undoubtedly the best burger in fast food. The double patty and the Big Mac sauce that is to die for. The whopper on the other hand is a good classic burger.
Conquering Fears is a Great Thing
“Above all, don’t fear difficult moments. The best comes from them.”
I never knew how much a campfire could bring together and bond a bunch of misfit 8th graders. I never knew how much easier it is to conquer your fears under the pressure of everyone than beating your fears alone with no one pushing you to do anything. It was Sunday night and I needed to start packing for my exciting class trip to Windsor mountain. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect on this trip, so I packed a little more than I needed. The next day when I arrived at school everyone got COVID-19 tested and sure enough everyone was negative. We got on the big yellow Yankee buses, pulled out of the bus circle and that was where my memorable trip full of fears and connections began.
Explore Your Passion,
The Greatest Game on Turf
The feeling of making the game winning play or making a huge play is why we play football, we also play for the team. Football takes hard work, toughness, skill, grit, determination and teamwork. If you don’t want or have even one of those, this isn’t your sport.
I’m tired of people trashing our earth like a garbage can at LS recess.
I’m tired of our animals suffering because we have hearts of stone.
I’m tired of us slowly killing ourselves and the earth.
I’m tired of being tired.
