Day 1 About Me: Denise!!!! :D
Hello there! my name is Denise and i will become a junior this fall. at the OMLI i plan to obtain information in regards of financial aid and improve my leadership skills such as being more motivational and expressing myself more emotionally. I always try new things when the opportunities come and i enjoy creating new friendships. my favorite things to do are going out for long runs and swimming laps for an hour.
Day 2 challange course
Oh Man the challenge course was something that I have never done before! Even though i was a bit insecure about the heights of the obstacles, I always try something new which made me go through all of them. As always, i did not regret getting in the air because i accomplished something that was difficult for me to endure at first. My favorite challenge was zip lining because it was exhilirating right after my foot leaned out of the edge of the block. i would also like to give props to Eddie who successfully reached for the bar from the power pole.:)
Today during our ledership clsss we did team activities and learned more about planning our future and being realistic in life. on some activities we struggled at first but once we got the hang of what we figured out what to do we accomplished our common goal. this morning was more fun as well because we played basketball. even though basketball isnt my favorite sport in the whole world, it is a lot more fun when playing with people who you are very comfortable with....... and i cant wait to go to newport and to the beach tomorrow as well!
we went to the beach today and it was sooo much fun!!! we got to see awesome sea creatures that could totally eat me if they wanted to if i was stuck in the ocean. we also dissected salmon and i took as many pictures as i could. after the aquarium we went to the beach and it was fun. some of my friends and i went as far as we could into the water but it was sooo cold! then afterwards Joel and i buried martin in the sand and then more of the guys took over and made the rest of his "body" on the sand XD. But by the end of the day everyone in the van on the ride home fell asleep except for me. I was playing sudoku.
man!! almost everyone loves soccer which is awesome for them but not for me because and i struggled being a part of it.i am a runner and swimmer only. this morning my group and i had to play soccer but in the end we almost won at least.
