Thinking about the marines (what i want to do when I’m older) I think about leadership. Every single person in the whole military, is a leader. They are brave, strong hearted, and anything and everything good. However there are “leaders of the leaders.” The smartest, person with the most common sense, and wisdom. These are the born leaders, one that i hope to be one day. The other men/ women in the marines, are a mixture of born and made leaders. I remember times when I was little being a leader in things small as a game of manhunt to now when ill play air soft and lead the team sometimes. You may think air soft is stupid, but i have to say its more fun then it seems. Whenever i think of leaders I think of school, because teachers lead the class. You are following a leader in school whether you realize it or not. I consider myself a leader and not a follower, I’m my own person and like it that way. if anyone wants to follow me then so be it, but I don’t follow. I hope to one day to show that i was a born leader, like i talked about. I think i am a leader because, I don’t show emotion very much so nobody thinks I’m sad, or mad. Usually they can only tell when I’m happy. I use my head, mind over body thinking things out before I do it. I have a lot of common sense for someone my age, i know some people who couldn’t guess which way an elevator is going if we gave them 2 tries! No common sense, or just plain dumb? I don’t even know. I’m also brave, I had- scratch that have to be brave with my stomach, and I wish to be a marine which takes bravery to be in. There saying is; the few, the proud, so you have to be proud with what you do. I have other good qualities, but well save those ones for later to talk about. Do you consider yourself a leader?
These are my Thunder trucks from one of my first skateboards. There a little old and used, so they may look worthless to you, until you hear my story about them. Last year I got very sick because of my stomach issues toward the beginning of the year (of school). We just recently (my family) found out what was wrong with my stomach. Anyways last year I had to be puled out of school and be homeschooled because I was sick for too long and the school was starting to give problems to my parents. I ended up being home schooled, so I didn’t have many friends last year, only ones that lived around my street. So to pass the time by while everyone was at school (I only had 1-2 hours of schooling) I skateboarded. I built them, used them, learned tricks and basically it was my life. I ended up stopping for a while, but I’m starting to skate again. Just one thing, I cant land ANYTHING. Last year was a sad time for me, and I love having more friends this year, I don’t really feel left out now. If my friend never got me into skateboarding (like I said I had a few friends not zero friends) it would have been even tougher for me. Not as much time would of been passed quicker, not as much exercise, and how could i forget; not as many weird looks from people.
