Adopted for a week
This year, however, Sato sensei's seminar class was too small to make a full basketball team. They wanted to play, so they invited me to join their team.
I think it was a good learning experience for me. I usually don't like basketball that much, but I really had a lot of fun this time.
Also, I wasn't sure how hard to try. Since I am so much taller than everyone else, it didn't seem fair to get so many rebounds. Then, I realized that a lot of the students were faster and better shooters than I was. More importantly, they were all trying their best, no matter who they were competing against! The students were good examples for me. I tried my best, too.
In the end, we lost to the champions during the semi finals and ended up in 4th place. They were really good.
Have you ever been in a situation where you felt uncomfortable doing your best? What did you do?
