My life in sports

Sports has been one of my amazing talents. I love doing physical activities. It gives me the pleasure to be able to put out my energy in a friendly way.
When I was in highschool, I always join the sports intramurals, and participate in running marathon, volleyball, futsal, dance, cheering, etc. I like to do and volunteer as long as Kinesthetics is involved. I love the feeling of satisfaction.

Of all the sports I know how to play, volleyball is my passion. I have been playing volleyball ever since I was in gradeschool. I just fell in love with it. I didn’t do spiking before, my bestfriends did. I didn’t join the volleyball varsity in highschool but I joined the pep band (you know where you hit the drums, I played the big bass ones). I have experienced playing the drums in one home-based game and that’s it. I realized it was for boys.

When I entered college, I thought it would be a fresh start. I joined the volleyball team, for a try. The first reason that I did is because I didn’t like my school so I said this would be it. Second reason is because I love playing volleyball, and I guess I have to learn more. I’m glad I did join the varsity team. It really taught me alot – develop my skills in volleyball (before, I was only the libero and the setter now I now how to spike). It taught me discipline, camaraderie, and authority. I learned how people are so different. I realized how important the role of the coach is. And how you get to learn from mistakes, even of others. I learned to value perseverance and determination through hardwork. Giving up is not an option, it just makes you weak.

I enjoyed my experience during trainings – doing tough drills, and ofcourse, bonding with teammates. Though, I can’t imagine myself doing it now because of my heart condition. I easily ran out of breath that my heart beats so fast. It is what they call ‘palpitation’.

The reason why I wrote this: I am not really that athletic that I work out alot. No, I’m not. I think I am just sporty. I just love doing works that make me perspire a.k.a. do volley, go jogging, shoot some balls, dance, etc.

One afternoon, I was waiting for my sister by the grassland of our school. And I was watching the soccer team practice. I easily distinguished who is better than the other. There were also althletics – they play sports in the oval field i.g. javelin throw, disc, running. I was delighted with the feeling of how they enjoy themselves through sports. It is different from any other things you do on leisure time. You have FUN.
