When I think of a coach I think of someone who takes time into telling you what exactly youíre doing wrong and attempts to help you fix it. This is also someone who knows what they are talking about and has a passion for that sport. My current Track and Field coach proves to be one of the best coaches Iíve had, ever! She helps me with what I need to improve and helps me to get better and I feel that I actually have gotten better since she started coaching me.
My current Coach is the only coach who I feel has actually taught me something worth learning along with new things. Thereís always something that she tells us that can help us get better whether its something new or old. She also competes with us sometimes, which motivates us to do and be better than before. Sheís very positive and encourages us to come back stronger if we lost or didnít do as well as we should have.
The other coaches that Iíve had in the past or even now were not what I would call a coach at all. Iíve had coaches who would sit on the bench and pout if you are loosing to Coaches who will talk about you to other teammates behind your back. When it comes down to it, Iíve basically had my parents coach me or when I was alone I coached myself. I think that it shouldnít be that way. If you took the job to be a coach then I assume you know what your doing.
Overall I think that my Track and Field coach is the best coach that I have had thus far. She knows how to coach and actually cares about her athletes. I feel that more coaches should be like her and kind of learn from her. Iím honestly glad that I donít have to deal with those types of coaches anymore. And if I ever come across someone like that anything that they say will go in one ear and out the other.

Friends, how many of us have them, friends, the ones that we depend on, friends! Safe to say I know I will have one friend who will always be on my side and thatís my best friend. This is a person I can trust and tell anything to. I always know that they will have my back no matter what, and will be with me through anything. That person is my mother.
I honestly do not know what I would do without her. She's my support system for anything and everything. I will never find a person like her. My mom is my drive to do well in school and in life. Without her Iím nothing.
She has taught me so much and I appreciate so much now. I love my mom more than anything in the world. Even though sometimes we bump heads, she will always be my right hand and bff. Sometimes I have to take a step back and look how lucky I am to have such a great relationship with her. Sheís a great mother and everyone should have a mother like her in their corner. Thanks mom, for everything!

Just recently I moved out of my momís house in Bolingbrook and moved in with a friend in Chicago. I think itís a big step for me because Iíve been with my mom for a long time. But to me moving out has helped me grow more, and learn to do things on my own. But I canít lie I do miss my mom from time to time. Going from seeing my mom all the time to almost every couple of days or even a week is hard.
I feel like Iíve been not allowed to do a lot of things while I was at home. I didnít really get to go out a lot and I had a curfew. Now I can do whatever I want but still know I have school in the morning. I have a lot more responsibilities on my own. But in a way, I do appreciate how hard my mom was on me.
My mom helped me to be on time for things. Before I was beyond slow and the biggest procrastinator. She still helps me with things from time to time, but itís not as bad as before. Being at home was fun at times but I feel like I needed to fly. Now I donít really care about the freedom, I just like doing things on my own.
I like my mom being proud, and knowing I did it on my own is even better. I would like my mom to know that Iíll be fine but Iíll always come to her first. We still talk everyday but now sheís more relaxed because she knows that Iím fine. I guess you can say that my mom is moving on more then I am. I guess she realized Iím growing up.
