Short Story About My Life
Today I learn how to stack boxes in to shelf, for example Gatorade, Food cans etc. Working at a church is somewhat tiring but you’ll get a lot of exercise. Especially working out your biceps and your arms and legs etc. Helping the needs is a wonderful thing to do, especially around your community like a church, Food bank, shelter etc. Doing community service is a good life experience to learn new things and to help out around your community. The reason why I had to do community service is because I didn’t make wise choices, I was a bad influence to myself and to my peers. Today I learn it wasn’t that I needed to do community service, it’s to do it for life experience. I can learn a lot in doing things that are positive in life. In the past years, my life was all about negative thoughts and things that I did was completely bad and not positive.

I didn’t care because I was used to it, I didn’t even knew what was really right or wrong when I was a young kid. During my 5th grade year, I usually wouldn’t listen to what my teachers are saying to me directly, I would ignore her and act like we never had the conversation. During my 6 grade year, I didn’t really learn a lot from what I should have learned. I wasn’t paying attention, I came to school high and brought drugs to school. I didn’t get the support that I needed till 7th grade. During my 7th grade year, I had a fresh start of becoming a good student and respecting my peers and teachers. Still, I have a drug problem that I couldn’t control, it was like being trapped in a hole for a whole year. 5 months has past, I met a drug therapist her name was Ashley. She helped me to stop using drugs, even though I really wanted to do it. She also got me into programs that were helpful to me, it was somewhat boring but you can learn a lot from it. I didn’t
