Life and Times of Jordyn
Who am I?
No one knows you, like you do. People have interpretations of you, all different kinds. Others think I am a "goody-two-shoes", or a teacher's pet. They think I get stuff handed to me. But I work hard every day to get my grades and achieve my goals. I do well at sports because I push myself to get better. Through all of this, my family's name is branded on my face, one misstep and it's ruined.
For me, if it's not Friday, then it's not a good day. Just one comment can make someone's day go from sky high to sitting in the dirt. If you take one second to make someone smile today, it was a day worth being lived. Whether you give them candy just because, or you compliment someone it can turn their day around.
If I were to retire right this second (not likely) I would travel the world. My grandmother is in Paris, France, right now and I would drop everything to be with her. traveling with my family brings me joy. You get to step out of your world for a week or a couple days and see what it's like to live somewhere else. It's a chance to try new things and to take a breath from everyday life. So far I have been to the Bahamas, Mexico, and Jamaica and I have also been to many of the 50 states. Traveling leads to new adventures everyday.
For the love of the game
If you're not doing what you love, why are you doing it? Basketball is the most played sport by teens in the United States. Basketball makes you work harder than many other sports. In sports like basketball, you have to decide if you are going to do well or work hard. This sport doesn't build character, it reveals it. I don't know what I would do without it.
My family is everything to me. They help me achieve my dreams and they know how to get me through the tough times. My siblings find every way possible to annoy me and my parents find every punishment I don't want. They keep me crazy and sane all at once. "I smile because you're my family, I laugh because there's nothing you do about it."
