The Evaluation of My Coaches
The Evaluation of My Coaches Throughout my high school basketball career I experienced several different coaches. Every new coach brought a different approach to coaching. The varying techniques of coaching brought about different attitudes and expectations during practices and games. I found that during practice, coaches had either the nice-guy or the drill sergeant approach. They also had different methods of coaching during and after the games. Practices are very important to basketball. If

As I stood at the three point line, the ball seemed to be in slow motion. Screams from the crowd came as the ball dropped through the net. Not only did this shot go in but it dropped through the net with such force that it made a sound that was heard throughout the gym. The gym was packed and the fans were on their feet, I had just hit my first three pointer of my varsity basketball career. As our team set up the press, sweat dripped from my face.

Aldous Huxley in his distopian novel- Brave New World written in 1932
Aldous Huxley, in his distopian novel,- Brave New World, written in 1932 presents a horrifying view of a possible future in which society has become a prisoner of the very technology it hoped would save us. In -Brave New World Huxley's distortion of technology, religion, and family values, is much more effective than his use of literary realism found in his depiction of a savage reservation. Through his use of distortion Huxley tells a classic tale with the theme of, be careful what you wish

Isn't it a fact that when we're in the middle of an experience, we are often unable to think clearly about it because we're too busy feeling the moment's thrill or sadness to stop and come to sensible conclusions?

Hello, My name is Ashley. I want to share with you my erotic story. Imagine the time...I was barely 17 and in high school. I had always felt that I looked at the other girls in the locker room differently than how I was supposed to. I'd love it when a girl near me would bend over in just her tight silky string bikinis to pull up her shorts. I would just stare at her ass and think of how tempting it was to just reach out and touch it. I thought to myself many a times that I shouldn't be doing it
