After-Gringott Bank Activities

In After-Gringott Bank Activities, Arash is training at the park for track & field.  His mother is there training him but the intensity is too much for Arash.

ARASH:  Mom, I’m trying to tell you something and you as usual you never really hear me. Each time you come with me to the park and try to train me, it always turns dark and you become abusive. You don’t even realize it but you change, you become this other person.

And I become worried about what I’m doing. I become so aware of my actions that I’m mentally crippled because I just want to please you, so that you will get off my back and stop criticising me.

Nothing I do is ever good enough in your eyes!

All the fun I have when I’m running drains out from me cause I feel you watching me like a hawk. I can’t concentrate on me because I’m so concerned about you.

Isn’t that horrible?!

And for the record, I am not afraid to work hard. It’s working with you and the way you express yourself to me that turns me off to all of it.

I’d rather train by myself or at bank with my my manager, at least they encourage me and it’s supportive. Your involvement sets me back from moving forward.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
