This entry is part of a blog series. Student academic peer coaches were encouraged to write about their passions, interests, and beliefs. Recent Buffalo High School graduate and peer coach Wyatt Bombstad is the guest author of this post. We wish you much luck at St. Thomas Wyatt!
I’m passionate about a lot of things but I think my passion for the outdoors rises above them all. I would chose this because its where I’m happiest and I spend most of my time. For me there’s nothing better then it because it reminds me so much of my early childhood, and it takes every bit of stress of my mind. Although I tell my mother that I test better after fishing that’s usually not true… but I sure feel a lot better about it beforehand!
Having passions in high school is very important because they keep you calm and can get you through all of the tough parts in school. I think that everyone should find something they like doing so that they can have a distraction from the difficulties of life and just take a load off your dailey schedule.
I know that without my passion for the outdoors I would not be the same person, do the same activities, or have the same friends as I do now. That’s why I would recommend that everyone fits there niche for a passion because I’m convinced it will not only make you a better person, but a happier one.
