The battle of the books
When I was growing up I wasn’t what you would call your typical book worm. Unlike my sister who was fascinated by books and my mom who could read love novels like they were going out of style I didn’t have it in my best interests. My hobbies were football, baseball, swimming, video games, board games and basically anything that didn’t involve reading. As I got older and my mind matured, I realized that reading and writing are important key fundamentals in life.
My understanding for this began in elementary school in fourth grade when the class was assigned to read the book “Holes”. When we began to read the book, our teacher, Mrs. Purcell, would call us out one by one to read out loud to the entire class. So, one by one, my classmates would read the paragraph that they were assigned and as it gained closer to my turn, me knowing that reading was not my forte, I began to become anxious my palms began to sweat My stomach began to churn to the point that it felt like I was going to vomit on the girl in front of me. When it finally landed on my turn, I had to buckle down and try my best as I read out loud. I began to sputter words that were so common, but I had never encountered before. .I overheard other kids giggling and making fun of me. My teacher did her best to control the situation and make it as least embarrassing for me as she could by helping me with the words and sounding them out.
Then as I got older, horrified from the memory of that one class in the fourth grade, I began to indulge myself into books. Setting reading goals for myself whether it be reading one chapter a day or trying to finish the book in one weeks’ time. The more I read the more I began to expand my vocabulary. Writing became easier and my grades started to improve in all my classes. Life began to become easier with my reading skills and knowledge growing. People may say that writing skills aren’t that important, but they are. Its vital for you to know how to write in events such as write a formal letter to someone or creating a resume to get a job. The advancement to my reading and writing skills would allow me to get the job I currently have as a lifeguard. You may ask why you need to read and write to be a lifeguard. It’s very important because there are incident reports you must write when a child gets injured, or an altercation breaks out. Your report is key to you supervisor to understand what took place and to have as evidence for insurance in case of a lawsuit. The relationship that I’ve had with reading and writing hasn’t always been the best or the most intricate, but I can say that it has grown and allowed me to be the person I am today.
