    That video made me feel that you should cherish your life everyday. Life should be about both work and enjoyment because you should love your job you work at and enjoy everything around you because if you just work you’ll be glum all day and everyday. But, if it’s just about enjoyment you won’t get a lot done. I leave an enjoyment mark on others because I’m a joyful person. I am proud of how I’ve lived so far because my first year of wrestling I made it to state. Also, I made it to state this year and we went undefeated in baseball last year. This is why I am such a cheerful person. My dreams are to win my first match on Friday at state, get a scholarship for wrestling, and get 1st through 3rd at state. I’ll pursue those dreams by trying my hardest and conditioning. 20 years from now I’ll be proud of everything I’ve done like making it this far in wrestling and the things I’ve done in school like the alphabet thing in your class.
