Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket



So I don't really like running, but this morning I completed a 5-k, it probably sounds weird that I ran a 5-k if I don't like running. I wasn't forced to do it or anything, in fact it was my idea to run it. We didn't run it very fast but I'm happy I did it. The main reason I wanted to run the 5-k was to accomplish it, it isn't much for a runner but I don't run so I'm feel really accomplished to have done it. This thread is for discussing accomplishments you have made of any sort. Cause I know what it's like to feel like you accomplished something really cool and want to tell others about it but have no one to talk to about it. So that why I made this thread. You can also post if you want to try accomplishing something new and don't know what to do and others can give ideas. Or you can post if you're working on accomplishing something and need encouragement or help. so yeah just post whatever you want about accomplishents and encourage others.

Great job running the 5-k! I really like the idea of this thread. Well, I've also run a few 5-k, and I made a lot more friends at summer camp then usual. I'm sure I have more, but I can't think of any right now... So, that's it for now!

Thanks, I hope you enjoyed your new friends, I find it hard to make friends with people I don't know very well, so congrats

Congrats on the 5-k, Barswallow! I've never run a 5-k before, though I used to do cross-country running. I never won any cross-country races, but I have won a taekwondo tournament! I've also gotten second place in a taekwondo tournament, but that's not as much of a big deal.

Congratulations on winning the taekwondo tournament, I've always wanted to learn a martial art but have never actual done it

Im going to share three right now but i probaly have more, and good job on the 5-k!

Ok so I did the talent show last school year and I'm VERY stage fright so I'm really proud of that.

I went into a cave and I LIKED it, our counsler told us that if everyone went in the cave shed find a cave cricket and EAT it.

I made a ton of friends at camp and I mean like A LOT and I usually never have the guts to talk to new people or i don't think I do and then I DO. (sorry that sounded really complicated)

I've attended the Illinios young author's conference thingy twice, nominated by the school! I've won many writing awards, (though I wouldn't really call them accomplishments because they're from when I was young and my writing was very much bad) and I also survived a season of cross country.
