High School Course

Life is a soccer game

Theatre Studies

Stepping out of my comfort zone.

Through my freshman year I was content with how I was, or who I thought I was. I never stepped out of my comfort zone and I never tested myself on how far I could go without saying how I felt on a certain subject. Then, in my Sophomore year of high school I took Theatre Studies at Morris Catholic to fill my art requirement for graduation. I ended up rekindling a fire that had left me since elementary school, when I first started theatre. In this class I pushed myself to get out of my comfort zone and I found out who I really was.

In a soccer game, there are times when you have to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Usually, players will have one or two moves that are signature to them. But when the other team finds out your strengths they will try to shut you down. Therefore, you need to change and do another move that the opponent is not expecting. You need to get out of your comfort zone and try a move that may not work, but you have to catch your defender off guard.

As I grow up and have a change in atmosphere, I need to remain true to myself. However, I need to escape my comfort zone and try to experience things I may not normally do. I think surrounding myself with people who may not have similar views as me will help me adjust. I need to slowly try and comprehend that my comfort zone is not always a good thing and that new opportunities will only happen if I take the first step.
