Now, you know my name is ******, you know I’m a girl, you know I’m a student, obvious things. But I’m going to go into a little more depth and tell you about myself, and just a few of my favorite things. So, it’s Tuesday night, and I am running around the house like a maniac. I constantly check the time every five seconds. I grab my unicorn pillow pet and make a mad dash for the couch. It’s 8:00 when I plop down and turn the TV to channel 5. My absolute favorite television show, NCIS, starts. I am pretty much an obsessive, addicted, squealing fan of NCIS.
My dad usually comes in and asks if it’s a new episode. I say yes, and he usually joins me. My dad is a big part of my life. He has always been there for me, pushing me to do my best even if I could get by without trying. As a child, my dad forced my sister and I to read books during the summer and then write a report on the book we read. This is the reason I also have a hobby of reading. He also made us wake up super early in the morning to go on a bike ride, or a run, or something like that. My dad and I have a very close relationship and I know I can talk to him about anything, no matter what. I’m on your six boss” usually said by DiNozzo, is one of my favorite phrases in NCIS. I love that phrase because it basically means I have your back. Knowing that someone has my back is really important to me. My friends are a huge part of my life, and I’m kind of picky when it comes to them. My best friend’s name is Brittany, and she is going to be a junior at Aurora Central Catholic, just like I am. I have known her only since 8th grade, but when I met her, she instantly became my best friend because we were so alike.
We liked the same things, like reading, volleyball and track, and she has always had my back, whether it was taking the blame for having the idea to ride our bikes to the seven eleven at 1:00 am to get slushies, or even taking the blame when I forgot to take the pizza out of the oven at her house, and set off the smoke alarm. She is a big part of my life, and she has defiantly sculpted me in some way into the person I am now. “One moment of weakness does not define ones character. ” said by Ducky, is another one of my favorite phrases in NCIS. I feel like this applies very well to my favorite thing next to NCIS, volleyball.
I play volleyball, and disregarding my height of a short 5’6, I’m hopefully going to be the starting outside hitter on our Varsity team this year. Volleyball is a huge part of my life, and I’ve been playing for quite a while. My coach and I have a very good relationship and she is one of the people that I consider a hero in my life. She had helped me get where I want to be with volleyball, to get to the next level. One of my dreams is to play at some big school with some outstanding volleyball program, but that’s a long shot. “If you can’t win, lose like a champion. said by Gibbs, is also one of my favorite NCIS phrases, and this one applies to another big thing in my life, which is track. I’ve been running varsity track since my freshman year. Me and my relay team qualified for state this season and went down to Charleston Illinois to compete. There were 28 relay teams competing and we ended up getting 26th place so we didn’t do as well as we wanted to but we defiantly “lost like champions. ” Now, I could say a lot more things about myself, and could entertain you with some more stories, but im running out of NCIS quotes that apply to my speech. So thank you for listening.
