In June, I chose to try out for the Varsity Cheerleading team. This example is symbolized as a rollercoaster because it's suspenseful waiting to find out if I made it or not, but then I got over the drop and it turned out to be really fun. Since I've tried out, I've grown more as a cheerleader and as a person. I am overall a happier and more active person because of this choice.
babysitting - entire summer
Over the summer, I started babysitting for my cousins. The object that symbolizes this is a jack-in-the-box because it can be kind of spontaneous and hectic when babysitting two boys. I learned what it's like to watch children through this, and I helped my aunt and uncle because they could go out to dinner without the kids.
In August, I chose to help out coaching a cheerleading team for 4-8 year olds. A symbol that I chose to represent this experience is a massage because it was very therapeutic teaching them. I learned how to teach kids through this experience. I impacted them because I taught them.
