Hi my name is Martin I am here because my teacher encouraged me to come , she said it would be a great experience and I agree with her I just got here and I'm already loving it! While being here I hope to learn more about colleges, how to prepare for it, and how to choose what college is right for me.I think what makes me unique is that I'm very outgoing and I always love to meet new people. My motto is " Never look back on the bad things always Look forward and work for the better things."
Day 1:Getting Started
Today I got to meet new people and hold conversations with them, I also got to play with an Ipad and do a blog with it.I got to play kickball against the staff unfortunately the students lost but it was still fun,I got to take a tour of the campus and got to see where each place was after that we all went to bed it was a tiring but great way to start the camp off.
Day 2 Challenge Course:
Today I woke up at six to go run the mile,I did my mile in 6.08 minutes I think it was a pretty good time by the end of the week I have to improve my time and I'm determined to do so. After the mile and breakfast we all headed out to a rope course on the way there I was becoming more and more nervous because I'm scared of heights but in the end I went up on one of the ropes course that you had to work with a partner to get to the very top, unfortunately we did not get to the very top but we got higher than what I expected to get.So far the day has been great I just got done listening to a speaker on how to improve your public speaking and I learned a lot from him including techniques that I will use when the time comes for me to speak in front of a public.After dinner we all got to go bowling but I didn't bowl I played pool with some of the leaders the whole time.
Day 3 :
Nothing special has happened today we got up in the morning and got split into three groups one played soccer, one ran on the track,and one played basketball which was my group it was pretty fun it was the first game of something that I didn't worry about the score I was just having fun. My group has gotten more connected every day we just talk about the most random things and every one joins in which would have never happened the first day we were all here. I'm going to miss the conversations we have in my group.
