I am thankful for my friends. Most of my friends I had just met in middle school. They are always there for me supporting me. I know when I am with them I will have a blast. It makes me sad to know that many of us will be separating in high school next year.
I am thankful for my sports teams. I have been on many sports teams these past few years. I have been on a couple basketball teams, a soccer team, a softball team, and a dance team. My teams are my second family. They are helpful, and even though I may not be the best at the sport they accept me and push me to do better.
I am thankful for my dog. My dog’s name is Nino, he is a 1 year old multi poo. We bought him in Florida on vacation. We had just gone shopping one day, little did I know we would be getting a dog. I knew from the second I saw him I fell in love, and after about 30min of convincing he was finally ours. He is very energetic and playful.
I am thankful for Greece. I have been going to Greece every summer ever since I was little. We have a house their on the island I am from, it is a small island called Andros just a 2 hour boat ride from Athens. Many of my family lives in Greece and I look forward to seeing them every summer. My favorite thing about Greece is the beautiful scenery and the food.
I am thankful for my culture. My culture consist of going to church every Sunday, Greek dancing, goya youth group, eating gyros, and celebrating Easter about a month later than everyone else. Most of these things may seem strange or embarrassing but to me it’s reality, it’s what makes me unique.
I am thankful for my education. Although I may complain a ton about having to go to school every morning, I am grateful to have the right to an education. I enjoy learning new things or working at something to become better. I love writing and reading , I struggle in math so I practice hours till I can succeed. School has taught me many things and has brought me to were I am today. I can’t wait to see were it will take me later in life.
