Izabel's An unforgettable day

                                            An Unforgettable Day


In the gym, no air conditioning, At least 15 girls running. The coach, “Hustle, Hustle, Hustle!” No stopping 5 minutes straight, Bump, set spike. “Nice foot work”, “Keep going.” Stretching, practicing. 
The first day terrified. New school, new coaches, new rotations,blue eagle’s jerseys. Everything new. When starting we work on everything, little things that matter in the game like foot work, bumping, setting, and spiking no matter. I was scared to ask for help like with my serving for example, not that the coaches aren't nice they are wonderful but having the feeling of just not wanting to get help, even when i needed it.
Finally I started to get the hang of it it was becoming easier and easier. Running was getting effortless, bumping, setting, spiking, but i noticed that I still needed help with my serving even though it was getting harder I needed to ask about what I could do to get a better serving arm. The first game was in a couple days my serve is better, after the coach gave me ideas on what to do. I am so thrilled that I know I can depend on my coach and now my serve.
As soon as practice is all done and my game is tomorrow I will never forget bump, set, spike. But I will always know now that it is okay it ask for help even if it is scary. My coach would not of kicked me off the team or not let me play. It was scary and I was terrified but it paid off to ask for the help. I will never forget this valuable lesson.

                                                          My Bedroom Writing 


Here is my bedroom, when I walk into my room after school to do my homework, i lay on my super comfy bed with my favorite pink, sparkly sheets. If I don't need to use my computer I put my computer on my marble nightstand that used to be my great aunt’s. When I get up I see my glossy brown dresser which has all my stuff on it, like my favorite lava lamp. I got this lava lamp for Christmas 3 years ago. It is a dark purple and a pink with a blue water background.

When I explore a little more I see my bookstand with all my favorite books. Which each and every book has something I enjoy reading. With all my of my track and field day ribbons on the top of the bookstand. From anywhere from 1-5 place ribbons. I also have a colorful dream catcher that my mom made me when I was 2 yrs. old. I have had this for a long time. When I look on the next shelf on my bookstand I see my old brown jewelry box that used to be my Great Grandma’s. I got this box when my Great grandma died and after my mom had it. This specific box is an antique. It is brown, made from smoothed wood, and is very old. I am rich beyond measure.
