Year2017 is going to end, and I have finished my first semester at American high school.The first semester seemed relaxed, but actually I was having a hard time. Justleave “the student’s job” ---grade and study for a minute; I would like to talkabout the sports at our school this time.
Decemberis a month for the sports competition season in winter, which means exerciseswould become more frequent. And I participate in a very fun team: archery.
Comparedwith the other sports, I think archery is easier, more relax and interesting.It doesn’t need any warm-up of physical training, just practice——at least at my level now——so it is easybluebirds like me. Second, archery is a very cool sport, and any picture youtake will show how cool you are! This year is the first year for archery team tobe built in our school and it is my honor to be one of them.
Thereare two parts in competition: ten-meter and fifteen-meter practice. Practiceone time and record three times for each. Totally eight times and shoot fivearrows in one round. The game was held in a gym of an international blue ribbonschool, named Gray Middle School. There were lots of people, which made me feelnervous although more than half of them were younger than me. My line-mate wasa boy and I thought he was younger than me. Luckily, he was very kind and wedidn’t have any problem or argument during the game. At the end of the game, hesaid “good job” to me (well, not really a good job though) and that was a niceexperience to have him as a line-mate in a game. (Surely, not all of myteammates were as luck as I was. Some players were mean and unfriendly.)
It was snowing on that Saturday during the game and that was the second-snow forthis winter. It was pretty but my game was not that pretty that I didn’t dovery well. This was not what I had expected in my dream—the winner. I realizethat experience could always be the most important thing. With the beautifulhope for Christmas, I will dream for a supernormal performance on my next game!
