Mistakes Are Opportunities For Learning Someone once said that, “mistakes are opportunities for learning.” I have had this saying told to me from many years of school sports; however, I never knew what it means for a while. Let me explain on how I know what it means now. Football was the first thing that gave me a hint, at the least, about what it means. There is also school. A more consequential learning from mistakes experience. Then there is just normal everyday life. Foot ball was the first thing that gave me a clue about why people, including me, make mistakes. I started off thinking that a mistake was something people made and forget about; however, there was always that feeling of regret after you have that “mistake.” I was in the middle of a football game and I did mostly everything right. But then I made a crucial mistake of not blocking the right guy and letting them make a touchdown. That made me think that I was a huge screw-up and that I wasn't meant to play football; however, my coach told me that when you make a mistake, it is part regret, and part a learning opportunity. He told me to remember what I did and make sure not to do that in the next play. Once it came to that point in the game where I was back in, I listened to him and blocked the right guy for a safety, a 2-point score in football. That's when it dawned on me. Mistakes make you feel bad enough to try to correct what you have done and not do it again. School was one place that I realized that many mistakes happen there; however, it wasn't a place that you wanted to make a mistake in order to make yourself better. School is a place where most mistakes are made however. So, that was a good place for me to also learn that mistakes are opportunities for learning about what to do. Having already realized that if you make a mistake in school and you don't fix it as soon as you can, then it could ruin your chances to make a foundation for your life. If you get a bad grade, then you have to fix it, Common sense right? Well, if you don't fix that mistake, then it will come up on your GPA. Then it's permanent. My freshman year, I didn't really care if I got a good or bad grade. It was probably around my sophomore or junior year that I got my act together. Now, because I didn't fix mistakes then, I'm still paring for them now. Mistakes are something that everyone…

life.” She said an example would be tattooing and piercing. It seems like the social norm for
women today to get their ears pierced and for some men to get tattoos. The fact of the matter
is that in verse 28, “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor imprint any
marks upon you”, if you get a tattoo or piercing, you cannot be buried in a Jewish cemetery.
The sad part is that 14% of the American population has a piercing other than the ear lobe…
When you grow up, you will have many different lives. However, school life is the best time in human life. During this time, we experience physical development, emotions, friendships, relationships, and especially knowledge but I was beyond those expectations in school life. Sometimes we never really learn from the first mistake or the second or third. It only hits us when were given the last chance. Attending school for a good time not to do work. After every class I had to meet up my coordinator…
I'll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you, too,
Don't forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead,"
No worries or cares,
Regrets and mistakes, they're memories made,
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?
Nevermind, I'll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you,
Don't forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love,

are usual in the world, so I believe most of us have gone to zoos and visited various animals. Moreover, a number of animals live in there including some endangered species. However, do you know a majority of animals in zoos live half than their normal life expectancy out in the wild? What cause it happened? I do believe zoos may have many negative influences for animals because of following reasons.

seemed to be something my life was all about. It's something that
is a horrible habit to pick up. The time wasted on doing something bad for your health you can
never get back. All the time spent on doing something temporary to cope with life could be spent
doing something you love to do to cope. If there is anything in your life, where you have to do
something to cope something negative, that needs to be changed.
Life is a gift and it needs to be
treated like a gift. Life needs to be respected…
family that is special to me. There is one particular person who has really had an impact on my life. My grandfather, Luther James Marshall, was my inspiration.
