“Mom I’m just a burnt chicken nugget with a broken fin like nemo.” This is how I ended a conversation with my mom the other day. I like myself (most days) I promise. The end of the school year means stress, stress, and more stress.
I’ve found that I take my bad days out on myself. That might sound weird, but whether it’s how I talk about myself to my mom or believing someone else’s negative comments about me, it’s me who takes the L.
Despite all of this, I am so grateful to have a place where I don’t have to worry about anything, it’s our softball field. Even though I can’t play, this field and the girls on it bring me so much happiness.
After spending all day cooped up in a classroom it’s nice to be able to come to the field and forget about it all. It also helps that I have the best teammates around, many of which I look up to. Everybody deserves to have a special place that makes them feel better, this diamond filled with dirt just happens to be mine.
P.S. please don’t tell them I said that, their heads will get too big and I’ll have to deny it.
