Memoir part one assignment

First part of memoir book- The first part of my book was about Derek Jeters life, goals he accomplished, goals he wanted to succeed in, how his parents taught him so much about life, and about how you need to set goals up in your life to be successful.

Personally I liked the first part of the book. I thought it was really interesting that he always wanted to be a Yankee even though he grew up in Michigan. The goals that he told himself that he was going to accomplish was incredible. I could never imagine setting those goals as a young kid, and then actually accomplish them. For an example he said he wanted to be the high school baseball player of the year. (Being the high school baseball player of the year is based on the best high school baseball player int he country). He told himself that as a freshmen and as a senior he accomplished that. That's crazy. His parents had so much confidence in him in everything he did that he thought he could do anything. He also talked about all the struggles he had to go threw playing in the minor leagues. As an eighteen year old I could never imagine myself having to go through all those struggles as what he did. Overall I really enjoyed the first section of this book.

This I believe homework

2. David Buetow
3. Teaching a Bad Dog New Tricks
4. I believe in my dog. He believes in his dog.
5. 1-Before I had him, I considered myself “street smart,” avoiding eye contact with people I didn’t know or didn’t think I wanted to know. Running through Chicago neighborhoods with Duncan has changed all that. Now when people smile at us, I smile back. 2-If Duncan stops to say hello I stop and greet them, too. He believs that Duncan has chaged his life.
6. I had dates with women who would mistakenly think I was loyal to them but I never returned their calls or thanked them for the cookies they left on my doorstep. What a stud...

Hw questions

The thing I'm most anxious about at EHS is to start the hockey season. Because hockey is my favorite sport and I love it. All my brothers played hockey, and I want to start playing again for Edina.

One goal I have as a sophmore is to make JV for hockey and be close to making the varsity team. Because I played bantam A last year and I worked hard over the summer. So by making that Jv is the first step to making that varsity team as a junior.

I'm in

woooo hoooo
