I never really felt like water was ever an issue in my life, right up until I wrote the wrong essay for class last week. It all started when the teacher mentioned that he drank over 5,000 water bottles per year or so. After that day I started paying attention to how much water I drink and how basically all the water I drink comes from water bottles that I keep buying through out the day. Hydration is a big deal, especially in the heat we have to bear living in San Antonio. I drink at least 5 water bottles per day, instead of drinking sodas and juices, and I actually love it. As long as I feel hydrated I feel like I have a better appetite, a better mood, and basically better health. I could never imagine life without water and personally I believe there is no way that humanity could endure a day without fresh water. Never the less we see water being wasted everyday, we see climate change destroying the polar caps, and companies polluting water sources. I hope we never reach the point where water will be a commodity, where water prices will be affecting those who won’t be able to pay for it. I hope I never ever have to face the difficulty of not being able to drink water or buy water. Through writing about this, I started to remember back in my middle school days. Back when everything seemed so simple and easy, I mean what could possibly bother a young teenager, other than the fact of getting a girlfriend. It was probably around October in my seventh grade year. I remember the weather perfectly; it was nice and cold with chilly and strong winds blowing. I even remember the blue Hollister sweater I wore that day. It was the first time I fell victim to de-hydration, and just the memory of it makes me shiver. If you have experienced severe de-hydration then you really know the value of water, or at least what the lack of it does to you.
My school was hosting the regional basketball tournaments; we had all schools from my city coming to play games at all times. Back...
