I really started to pay attention to what was going on in my life when I started to do sports in school. I started with Cross Country and Track, but I mainly did throwing because the other events had tougher coaches.
I tried Baseball next, but that only lasted a year or two. My coaches would always put me in the outfield until it was my turn to pitch due to organization regulations. This made this sport unbearable, when I already thought it was insufferably boring to begin with.
When I discovered my unlikely ability to accurately shoot 3-pointers in Basketball, my preferred sport immediately switched. Unfortunately, this new interest was short-lived as I quickly realized that the only way to get better was to be tall and agressive. I needed a sport that would let me play alone and still do well.
When my parents finally let me start playing tennis, I knew that it would stay my favorite sport for a while. My height advantage over many of the other players allowed me to take control of every game I played, and I enjoyed every moment of it. Once I got a new pair of tennis shoes, I knew I had found the sport for me.
On a different topic, I had started to find the joys in video games. I would often forgo doing my homework in favor of playing many of these games with my friends. This led to my parents enforcing stricter rules about when I was allowed to use the family computer, but I was eventually able to compromise and buy a laptop of my own.
I'm essentially set on one college unless another takes me off of their waiting list. I'm excited to see how the different atmosphere will give me a whole new perspective on life, and I can't wait to enjoy every second of it.
