My Childhood Failing

From sixth grade all the way up until my graduation this year, sports consumed my life, primarily basketball.  Through those years I had spent plenty of money as well as countless hours working constanly for my dreams in the realm of basketball. All those years were spent in hopes of having the best basketball team in our high school's history and for myself to hopefully get noticed by some colleges.  In the end of all my sports endeavors, we ended up falling very short of our goal, bouncing out of playoffs in the first round and myself only averaging five points a game (though all my stats were well rounded) never totally realizing my potential in the land of basketball and sadly not getting the oppurtuity to pursue the sport in college.  That being said, now many new doors have opened up for me due to the new openess in my schedule and the expansion of my mind, soul, and body's limits.
