We have all made mistakes before. No one will not make any mistakes. Some mistakes are much worse than others. I will tell you about 3 of my biggest mistakes. My first is signing up in a blank space in sixth grade. Another one of my mistakes is not preparing enough for this year's Solo Ensemble Festival. The third mistake was not going on my Boy Scout Troop's last Kalalau backpacking trip.
My first mistake may seem a little confusing, but I will clear it up. One of our final projects for Social Studies in 6th grade was a most wanted poster for a famous explorer like Marco Polo and others. We were given the chance to sign up in groups on a piece of paper. None of my friends were really in that class so I decided to be the first one to sign up for a group, so there were 4 blank spaces under my name for people to sign up under me. Those 4 slots were taken by 4 kids who could not hold their weight in the project. I ended up doing almost all of the work, I planned what it would look like, I did the research, and I decided what to write on it. Since no one is perfect, I made some mistakes, mistakes that could have easily bee fixed by other group members helping out with it. The other part of the grade was a verbal presentation and it did not go so well. In the end my grade was impacted because of that project and it was not a great way for me to start off middle school. I don't really hold a grudge against them though, but that's mostly be cause I completely forget who the 4 were, there might have only been 3 others.
This past Solo Ensemble Festival for band was much harder then the year before, and partly because I didn't prepare enough. My first one was really easy. I had an easy Ensemble and my Solo was so easy that I didn't even play through it completely until about 4 or 5 nights before. This year I practiced much more and much better and I still did worse because it wasn't enough, I had a harder song and I didn't care quite enough to meet the harder song requirements so I ended up not qualifying for a medal.
The final mistake and the most recent mistake I have made was not going on my Boy Scout Troop's Kalalau backpacking trip. It ended up being a lot of fun for everyone else who went on it, but I just didn't want to go. I would keep telling myself that I didn't have the gear to do it or I wasn't capable of making it through, even though I did have some of the gear, others could have shared with me along the way, and I could have borrowed gear from other people who were not going on the trip. There were people younger than me going on it and they were fine, so I could ave made it through. I really regret not going on the trip and I don't know when the next one will be, it could be over a year away.
These are not all of my mistakes, and neither are they some of the worst, these are just some of my more recent mistakes that have had an impact on me more than choosing to eat cereal instead of eggs for breakfast. Well, come back later for some more, bye!
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
