  1. yes I have when I had to play soccer. Jeese I have no eye foot coordination at all. And I'm not that athletic. I barely got the ball and didn't get any points. I really didn't want to do it.

  2. I've had reluctance when I've had to play lacrosse. Whenever I play it I run out of energy and I have to stop for a while. I also am never able to get the ball. So it's like I'm not even playing since I'm not able to do much besides try and chase after the ball.

  3. Yes I have had to go to one of my mom's meetings. It is boring because you have nothing to play with. I had to go because my mom could possibly lose her job so I went

  4. I'm reluctant when I have to go shopping with my mom. >_< I really hate shopping! Sometimes we even shop for hours & hours, it's so tiring! XP (look at it sideways)

    WARNING: SHOPPING IS EVIL AND WILL
    TIRE YOU OUT IF ARE NOT READY OR
    IF YOU DO NOT LIKE SHOPPING.

  5. Yes in fact I have been reluctant. It was one day when I have to read a verse in chapel. It was not that I would never do it was just that I wasn't very thrilled about it.

  6. Have I ever been reluctant? I think everybody has. One time when I was reluctant was when I was five. I was signed up for soccer. I was all exited until I found out as a personal opinion, that soccer isn't any fun. That was a story about the time I was reluctant.
    [I never played soccer again]

  7. I was reluctant to speak in front of my church and say the children's blessing. At first I was kinda nervous, but after I did it it was okay. Now I kind of like speaking in front of people.

  8. Have I ever been reluctant? Yes. It was back in the 4th grade when we were learing good memory verses from A to Z.
    Of course I had to stand up in front of the entire grade and say my letter and the memory verse and of course my letter just had to be the letter P. I wasn't so thrilled because yes people had a good laugh about it but it also passed by and then we got more mature about it. I didn't like it at first and was nervous but once I had done it it didn't really bother me and I actually liked to say it.

    I have been reluctant. When I had to be the angel. In a play were Jesus was born. I had stage fright really bad, but there was no going back. I worked really hard and did it over and over to my mom. She said "I was really good." Then it was time for the play. I said my part. Afterward everybody said "I did awesome." Now I was wondering why I was being so reluctant.

  10. I was reluctant the first time I went on a plane. I was nervous and I didn't want to do it. I sat by my Grandma and she said, "It's going to be okay." When we were in the air I wasn't that scared! Now, I've been on a plane more than eight times and I'm not scared anymore.

  11. I am reluctant when I have to stay after school with my brother. I'm really bored sometimes because If I don't have homework and a book I'm bored. I also have to go upstairs and I bump into high school students all the time. The good thing is I got see what he does after school like plays and other stuff. Now I'm use to staying after school with my brother.

  12. I was reluctant when I had to go to extended for the first time. It was okay, but a lot of my friends went to car rider, so I had no friends to play with. Now that I'm in middle school, a lot of kids go to extended here. Even though my friends aren't always there, I enjoy extended now.

  13. I am always reluctant. Especially when my mom makes me walk home with my brother . It hurts my back so bad and when I get home I fall to the ground. That's when I was reluctant.

  14. I was reluctant one day whren I had to go to a cheerleading game. I was so tired the night before I didn't feel like going. When I got up that morning I felt all droopy and sad. When I was on the way to the game I stated to get more happy. Then when I got there and finished we had won the game. It was the best day we had cheered.

  15. When I am reluctant it is usually when I have to get out of bed in the morning.It is not fun when you have your sweet dreams interpreted.When I come back from school I am just as tired as I was in the morning.

  17. When I am most reluctant is when I have to wake up from naps or from sleeping etc. I am a VERY hard sleeper so when I wake up it is not so pretty. And sometimes sleeping is the only thing to do after a long day of school or anything so the point is DON'T WAKE ME UP!!!!!!!

  18. I was reluctant when I was at Vanderbuilt 2 weeks ago and they had to draw some blood and I did not like the sound of that. But when that it was for my research I finally gaave in.

  19. The only time that I reluctant is when I have to go to bed. Bed time is important I understand that, but it is really annoying because I don't want to go to bed at night, but in the morning I want to stay in bed. Sleep is a very reluctant and confusing subject.

  20. The time I'm most reluctant is when I have to do homework. It's hard for me when I'm in a rush to do something else. Sometimes I do it at school but when I don't finish at school I have to do at home. So I'm most reluctant when I have to do homework.

  21. I have been very reluctant in gym class. Sometimes we would play a game that I didn't like and I wouldn't try my hardest. Then when gym was over I would be sad that I didn't have fun in gym. That is one of the many times I have been reluctant.

  22. The time I'm most reluctant is when I have to get up to go to school. It's hard just to get up so quickly after sleep. And you don't really have time to relax in the morning. I mean on school mornings you can't sleep in! So I'm most reluctant on school mornings.

  23. I'm reluctant when I have to stop reading. I'm always in a great part of the book i am reading when I have to go to basketball or LEP or some other extra-curricular activity. I would read all day if I could and still try to finish the book. I'm never not reluctant to read.

  24. One of the times I have been reluctant is when my parents made me go to a girls birthday party and I didn't know her at all. I went to the party and it we actually became really good friends. That is one of the times I have been reluctant.

  27. One of the times I am reluctant is when I have to do homework. You have to work at night and it's not fun. I am never happy when I have to work, so going home and working is hard. That's what I am reluctant about.

  29. I have been reluctant when I was going to go bowling at a kid place. I was 5 years old. My heart was going crazy cause I had no idea what I was doing when to my first shot it went in the other players area.

  30. I was reluctant when I had to sit in car for 12 hours and 36 min. I was wanting to get out really bad cause I wanted to move. we even had to sleep in the car and didn't stop. I was not that reluctant cause I got to go to coco beach and it was fun. But next time I would like to go in a plane. Cause in a plane it would be 5 hours. So that is when I was reluctant.

  31. I was reluctant when I had to ride in the car for 15 hours. My family and our family friends were going to the Outer Banks. We went in two cars so there was a lot of room. In one car my friend, her older sister and I watched 5 movies. That was just one car. At same time that I was reluctant Iwas also very excited. That is just one of the times I have been reluctant.

  33. I have been reluctant so many times. The times I am the most reluctant are when I have to sit down and read. I would rather be outside playing football with my friends. I would like to be shooting basketball or throwing the baseball with my dad instead of reading. When my parents tell me to go and get my book, I am reluctant to get it and sit down and really read it.

  34. I have been reluctant to peapertate many times. I picked reading, I would much rather like to play with my dad outside than to be inside reading. I know there will be a time when I like to read and that time has not come yet.

  36. I am reluctant about alot of things, but the most thing I am reluctant about is dancing. My family, a couple of weeks ago, were at a wedding. After the wedding there was a after wedding party. So, of course, we had to dance to songs, and I was reluctant about that so much!

  37. I was very reluctant to go to math camp during the summer because I thought it was going to be so boring! When I got there, there were a couple of kids already there. Before math started, we got to talk. I made some new friends and it turns out that some of them are in my class right now. It was so much better than I thought and it refreshed my memory on how to figure out hard problems.
