“That which does not kill us makes us stronger." -Friedrich Nietszche
This quote describes my life perfectly. I have made so many countless and stupid mistakes throughout my years. The mistakes I made have made me wiser and I now give advice to my younger sister who is in the eighth grade. Right now she needs advice on dating and how to balance her school work. She is also a cheerleader in and out of school. I did all of those same things when I was in middle school and high school, so I am the perfect one to help her out. While going through high school, I had a really rough time dealing with my priorities. I had so much on my plate, with 2 cheer teams, 3 school clubs, friends and dating that I was just going through the motions, day by day. There was so much to do and so little time in a day. Throughout my whole high school career there was probably ten nights total that I had went to sleep before 2 o’clock in the morning. I really struggled to keep my grades up because adding competition cheer to my already hectic schedule threw everything off. My grades were dropping down to C’s and I am not an average student. My health was slipping away as well because I was not getting the proper sleep. My mom, who always monitors my grades closely, noticed the decline. She asked if I was alright and I explained my troubles. She suggested dropping something and I refused. By my junior year of high school I realized that I made the mistake of not having a set schedule for myself. I had to plan time to hang out with my friend and even sleep. Once I started making a schedule and actually sticking to it, everything was falling into place. I had become an organized person and I will never fall of track again just because I have to many things to do. If I don’t have things to do now, it just feels weird. I like to stay busy and have my schedule full because it is just who I am. I know that I can handle anything in life that hits me, whether it is good or bad.
