In 8th grade, we went to ShiMenShan, a beautiful mountain trip with amazing and stellar views. Throughout the trip, I feel like I really demonstrated Service. Throughout the wall, my friend and I were scared at certain parts. However, we kept helping each other and pushing on, despite how scared we were. But I still think I struggled with communication. During the raft building, I didn’t talk with my group much due to the fact that they were not talking to me. I still think I can work on that. Overall, I give the ShiMenShan trip 3/5.
Within my Storytelling group, I was a very big contributor when it came to writing. I wrote a great deal of our podcast and worked very hard on it. What I mainly wrote were some of the scenes before the main action, as that is what I felt I needed to work on. Within the Tree podcast, I feel as I did a great deal of work in all areas.
Something important to remember is you cannot feel one thing without the opposite. You cannot feel love without loss; you cannot feel fun without misery; and likewise, you cannot feel happy without feeling sad. This matters because what is the point of living life if you cannot be happy? Sure, it will protect you from pain; but there is no joy in life without; well, joy.
I have lost a close relative in the form of my Great Aunt less than a month ago, and you may think that this experience was useless; however, it has helped me in many ways. It has prepared me for the loss of other relatives in the way that I can cope with it better. And this experience will help me longer in life.
I would not take away the experience because it will help me further in life when I lose other family members. And that is something important to me.
