Walking out of Spanish class, my friend and I were taking about Soccer verses Football. He stated that he played soccer because he didn’t understand football. I made the remark that I played a sport, and it was yo-yoing.
He said “That’s not really a sport…”
I said “Well in my mind it is.”
Then I ran through some arguments in my head about how some people would thinks yo-yoing isn’t a sport. It all boiled down to the fact that any hobby could be a sport, whether it be yo-yoing, dancing, marching band, Frisbee, etc.
I was in Physical Education when something like this happened again. I was asked why I didn’t participate in any sports. I simply said because it isn’t a pastime I enjoy. I was then insulted, called out and ultimately defaced. I just couldn’t believe the hatred and judging that these athletic people had against me. I didn’t even know them.
Not everyone hated me, though. A lot of my friends support me (all 3 of them), excluding the person named at the beginning.
I hated being insulted and called out, but I am overall thankful that it strengthened my love for this hobby and gave me another reason to continue
