Essay title: Giant

Every human being has flaws that he or she wishes they did not possess. There is not one single person alive that is completely perfect and totally satisfied with themselves. Each and every one of us have something that we would like to change about ourselves, whether it is a trait, a fear, a habit, or even an event that has happened in the past. Some of these things can be overcome but sometimes, no matter what we do, they will always stick with us. These can be called “Giants,” named for the fact that they will always be there. It is times like this, when we have to realize they are part of who we are as an individual and focus on our better aspects.

Even when it comes to soccer, which is my favorite thing to do, I find myself being lazy. Soccer means the world to me but when I am asked to spend my summer working hard, trying out for varsity, my love for the sport is not enough. Though the sport contains a lot of running and a lot of practice, and I just rather not do it. Spending time with my T.V. and couch sounds much better!! These characteristics have always been who I am, and I do not think I will ever be able to get rid of them.

Being lazy and pushing things off until the last minute can be a really bad thing. Though it may not affect me much now, because I am able to pull myself together at the last minute,
