In this essay, I will be comparing my own life to the hero cycle. It will reflect on a time when I have been forced out of my comfort zone. This was when I tried out for cheer. It was my first time trying out for a high school sport. It was so nerve-wracking, especially when you have to go in front of judges that you don’t even know. We practiced the week of tryouts so we could learn the dance and cheers. I took a break from cheering for 5 years, so I didn’t know if I was gonna cheer anymore. I felt like cheer wasn’t for me, but people said I should tryout. I was not as nervous as I was the beginning of the week. I went home and learned all of my tryout material I needed to know. So when the day of tryouts came, I was ready to get it out of the way. Right after school, before Spring Break we all went in the auditorium to stretch and practice our jumps. I was ready to go when the judges arrived. I was the third one to tryout individually. When I went in there, it only took approximately five minutes. For it being my first time trying out for cheer, I think I did okay. When I got all of my stuff packed up, I was able to leave and come back at 6 o’clock to check the list on the girl that made it. My name was on the list and to see the excitement on my face was priceless, but on a serious note I couldn’t have done it without Mrs. Lambert. She taught me everything I needed to know. We had summer practices from 9 a.m to 11 a.m. 

When the next school year came, I was ready for pep rallies, basketball games, and especially football season. I was somewhat scared to get in front of a lot of people, mostly because I would be cheering. My first football game went by so fast. It was in the third quarter but it didn’t seem like it. I heard the sound that the scoreboard does to end the game. I was shocked because it seemed like I just got there. We shook hands with the opposing team and called it a night. I don’t remember when our first pep rally was but I know it was on a Friday. I was going to be in front of the whole school, but I was going to be okay. We did a dance and a cheer I believe. I was so scared because I thought I was going to mess up on the dance or cheer. When the pep rally was over, I was ready to go home. Whenever football season was over with, I had to push myself to learn all the basketball cheers before the first game. I think I learned my cheers in one day. We had like five home games we cheered at, then the season was over. Overall, I am proud of myself for overcoming my fear of being in front of people.
