My life is so interesting in regards to love happiness, and sorrow, that I do not know where to begin. People often say that they love to have me around because I entertain them. I always have a smile on my face! I never show pain and sorrow, or any other private emotion. As a result of playing football, I have learned how to mask my passions under my uniform. The book on my life, it would be a combination of a comedy and tragedy.
I like to laugh! Anytime people see me, I am either laughing or smiling because life is too precious! I wake up at 5:30, to train for football with other football players they show up frantic about waking up sp early. When I get to practice I come laughing and playing around, everyoneís mood changes. When people see someone smiling they begin to smile themselves.
One of comedic thing that has happen in my life is my mother. When I was little, my mother always did silly things to make me laugh. I remember trying to make her laugh by sitting on a wall, it was not very tall. While swinging my legs, I fell my head went into a bucket of oil. It was early afternoon when this happen I jump on our porch wall, and I kept swing my legs I swung it to hard enough where I flip over into the bucket of oil. My mother said thatís the reason my hair is so shinny black
Second funny thing that happen was when I was in high school they placed me into the wrong class by mistake. I was placed in a all female heath class, I though that was the best thing that happen to me while I was in high school. They made me pick another class but I think I learned more in that class because of the femaleís class input on what guys should do. These things that happen to me were considered funny to others but it was comedy to me.
Another situation should be in my life is some tragedies that has happen to me in my life. One of them is when my father decided not to be part of our family anymore. My father left my mother with five children: Kelvin, Kelly, Tawfiq, Angela, and John. This was not good for my mother because four boys can be hard work for a single parent. Luckily three of the boys had common sense and understanding on the circumstances. We had one bother that would not comply with rules that was laid forth by my mother and that was Tawfiq. He turned to a life of crimes and drugs. When I was little I had a V.C.R, my oldest brother Kelly had bought me, my brother Tawfiq stole my V.C.R, and pawn it for money so he would be able to buy his drugs. After he pawned my V.C.R he went to buy his drugs, and was picked up by the Miami police. If my father was there for us Tawfiq would of not turn to life of crime now he is doing hundred and sixty-eight months behind bars. My mother was only able to save three boys, and two of them engineering degrees if only father was around things would have been different.
Finally problems happen to me just like the problems happen to Stephen King when he was growing up. This problem hit home which was me and nobody else who had to deal with it was when I lost my football scholarship to Bowling Green State University. I can still see the image of my coach telling me they have to cut me because I didnít make the grades. I can still see it like it was yesterday some wrongs in my life I can never let go because it drives me everyday to make them right. I donít talk about it much because it makes me cry on the inside when just think about the situation. When a incoming freshman is predicted to come in and play right away, you tend to forget about what is really important about college which is school. I went to B.G.S.U
