A few weeks ago, I hit the surface of a lake while going forty miles per hour. It all started when we made the one and a half hour trip up to Bartlett lake. When we arrived, we promptly proceeded to unload everything from the small trailer. The trailer felt like it was two hundred feet long because unloading took forever. We then searched for flashlights and lanterns so we could see in the dark.
My personal narrative #4 The California Screamin Roller coaster OH MY GOD IT ’S DISNEYLAND! Wow this is amazing! I am actually here!
Autobiography I was standing there at the edge of a fifty foot tall cliff petrified with anxiety and fear. This wasn't a stupid attempt at suicide, rather a stupid attempt at having fun before summer inevitably comes. I knew my summer already wasn't going to be fun, I signed up for algebra 2 summer school classes. So I and a few friends decided we would go to Maunawili Falls a 6 mile hike to a waterfall with a 50 foot cliff. It took us 2 hours of being covered in sweat, going through bushes, up and down hills overrun by mosquitoes to get there.
I’ve always loved roller coasters. I love the feeling of the air rushing through my thick hair, and the way my stomach drops to my toes after the coaster car is plunged down a steep slope. But my favorite roller coasters are the kinds that leave an impression; the kinds that throw you for a loop (literally) and leave you wanting more. That is why I will never forget my first roller coaster at Walt Disney World.
It all started with the fourteen hour drive there. Sleeping, listening to music, and blocking out the complaining of my brothers. “Mommm, Carissa’s foot is touching me!” This was all I heard the whole ride there. I continue to turn up my music as loud as it will go and force my eyes shut.
The scariest most painful thing that has ever happned to me was in kindergarden when I broke my arm. Me and my cousin, Taylnn were at my grandparents house when it happned. Taylnn and I were fooling around and she jumped from the tall dresser to the bed. Being her little cousin I looked up to her and wanted to try to jump from the dresser to the bed just like she did. So, She slowly helped me get on top of the dresser.
Sometimes one’s principles are amazingly powerful enough for one to sacrifice their own life. In the tragedy, The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, the protagonist, John Proctor is accused of being a witch and has the option to confess to save his life. He decides to stick to his principles and is hanged for refusing to tell a lie. In Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” King speaks in support of the striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. He talks about several beliefs and his aim in life.
“The willow tree,” they told me as I walked out of the store. I never really listened to the townspeople as they were practically insane, so when Mr. Brown told me about the tree, I didn’t think much about it. I had never even seen a willow tree in Oasis Springs before that walk home. I remember walking out of the store and seeing a massive long-leafed willow tree at least forty-five feet tall.
Giant blue bodies of water and rocks with white sand were things I would see in TV commercials as a kid. Dream destinations were exactly just that, dream destinations. These blue water and white sand beaches looked nothing like the brown gunky sand and water down in Galveston. I was 11 and had only been to Galveston once as a toddler, so I had little to no memory of what a beach looked like through my eyes. I could only imagine what it was like to be at a beach.
