This week has been one where I have accomplished several things that I am extremely proud of. One specific event was a triathlon that I participated in. I swam and finished at the same time as my principal who is someone that I look up to. I was the youngest female to swim and my team and I got 8th place. When I walked in to the event the first thing I thought was why did I sign up to do this, right when I finished I felt excited for next year and doing it again. I had an immediate feeling of accomplishment when I finished. I am someone who constantly thinks I will fail. I have little confidence in situations and seem to constantly underestimate myself. I surprised not only myself but also others with what I had accomplished in my swim. I was extremely proud of myself and I felt like all of my hard work had paid off. I had been training with my business teacher three times a week for a month and felt as if it wouldn’t be enough. Once I finished I felt proud but immediately thought how I can get faster for the next year. This was a big accomplishment for me this week and this feeling will resonate with me for the rest of my life. It showed me that hard work can pay off. This week I also made big strides with my project. I meet with Matt and we discussed how my project can progress. The way he spoke about my project made me feel so excited. I know how cheesy this sounds but he made me feel like we could change the world. My project is all about positive change and thinking about the fact that we could create a machine that can stuff 100 plastic bags into one bottle and use it for construction. That means that if you stuff 1,000 ecobricks you can save 10,000 bags from going in the ocean. To me this is crazy to think about. We are have the opportunity to revolutionize the way plascut us recycled and that is crazy to me.
