Why I Want to Go to College.

COLLEGE

I guess that there is really no way to describe me.  I express my feeling in skateboarding and running.  When I start to run I feel like I can go on forever.  That is the same way for skateboarding, when I get on the board I feel like I can do anything that I want to do and no one can stop me from doing it.  I am nobody without skateboarding and running.  They are both my passion and my life in this world of ours and I think that they need to be on my resume for collegecollege.
I know that college is a big deal but I have to mention that I will try to get a scholarship for track or cross country.  I also mentioned that I skateboarded.  Also that is a big part of my life as well.  I think that when I started skateboarding I felt like I could do anything and be anyone that I wanted to.  Then it hit me.  I can be anyone that I want to be, and I can do anything that I want to do.  I just have to try hard enough to be able to achieve my goals.
I can go to any college that I want and I really feel that my resume would not be complete without adding that I run and will hopefully make a living skateboarding in the near future.  I want to go to college to get my masters and phd degrees.  I feel like I could get a scholarship for track and field and also I could meet some new people and I could also get into a frat house or I can get an apartment with the scholarship money.  I could get a lot of work done if I could have my own dorm.
I need to tell you why I am telling you all of this.  I need to say this not because a teacher told me to but because I feel like my resume would not be complete without telling you that I like to run for ever and I really enjoy skateboarding.  This is very important to me because my parents like me running but they think that I am going to get into the wrong crowd while skateboarding.  I keep telling them that I am going to be ok but I am saying that it can take me a long way from a bad crowd and that is why I am telling you all of this.  

College might be the best time of my life and It might be the last time that I will ever see my friends again.  So i want to make the most of my college experience by running and skateboarding as long as humanly possible.  This essay concludes my college essay because it tells you my life long dream and barriers that i am going to break through later in my life.  So until next time i will be running towards my next goal getting into college.


What college do you want to go to?

My Observations of Skateboarding tricks.




I love to skateboard and I am observing that when you want to do a trick you have to put equal force on the board as you are jumping up in the air.  So when you push down on the board, the board has the front wheels in the air and the tail of the board is on the ground.  Then I observed that to get the board in the air you have to push down on the tail and jump up at the same time.  But if you just jump up after pushing down on the tail you will not get the board up in the air.  What you have to do is push down on the tail of the board, jump up at the same time and you have to slide your front foot up the length of the board and when you slide your front foot up the back wheels of the board will lift off of the ground and the board will level out in mid air and then you will fall back on to the board and land your ollie. The other thing that I observed is that to do a flip trick on a skateboard you have to do the first two steps which are to push down on the tail of the skateboard and to jump up in the air.  But to do a flip trick, instead of just sliding your foot up the board you have to slide your foot either left or right off of the board to make the board spin.  Then you have to flick your feet out of the way so the board can finish its rotation and you have to bring your feet back together to land back on your board and successfully land your heel flip. what other tricks would you like to learn? post them in the comments.
