My parents dropped me off at the Middle school and I hopped into the school van with Tara, Avi, Brenna, and Mrs. Richert. We took off down the road on our way to the Humboldt. “We’re here!” Mrs. Richert stated. I was dreading my audition, but I tried to forget about it for a while. Tried to enjoy the honor band.
The event that I went to this summer represented a groups identity and was known as the Chicago Pride Parade. I went this summer with my two best friends Kierra and Nakiya to Chicago to visit my grandparents and other relatives. During our stay in Chicago, we saw that there was a pride parade happening on June 26th and we wanted to go because we have never been to a pride parade before. My grandparents were at first hesitant in letting us go down to the city for the Pride parade because of the Orlando shooting that just happened about two weeks prior. But my friends and I convinced my grandparents to drive us down to the city to see the parade.
“Beep beep!” The sound of my grandma's car made us both rush ourselves outside. At the time, I didn’t know what I was going to expect going to Cape Cod because I had never been there before. All I knew was that the food was good, and you had to dress preppy. Sam and I hopped into the car after squeezing our luggage into the tiny trunk. I asked grandma,” How long is the ride there?”
I had no parents to worry about my plan because my parents are always the first to get to the block to set up for the party. As 5:30pm was around the corner and I heard Jerome knocking on the door waiting to come in. “ I’m not so sure about this man are you sure we should do this “ . Jerome said . I quickly smacked him in the face and told
I was told some of them would be here this morning. Kay told me Donny once presented her with a business card which read, Donny Hallmark, President, The Humpers. When she shared one of his children commented, “I didn’t know dad was president of the car club,” Kay responded, “Oh it didn’t mean anything, they would have a new president every other week.” That seems right. It was not about being the head honcho. It was about the love of cars, having fun, and being with
It’s a new beginning, having more freedom and getting to go to places without an adult during summer. Going on first dates with your crush, gossiping to your friends about what happened the next day. Getting so competitive during a sport playing against your bestest friend. Finally being able to get a summer job to possible save money for a car and taking responsibilities to help you for your near future. Not able to wait for homecoming, and prom, then the most important day of your life, graduation.
But i had succeed and i was excited for all driving adventured to come with my friends. I felt nothing but excitement. Driving was everything i hoped and anticipated it to be, Except for one exception. One day in June i had just gotten out of school and my little brother had called me to pick him up from the opposite side of the school building, but with an unbearable line traffic i choose to take a lap around town to get to the other side, living in a small town i thought this would take less time then waiting in the line with no patience. I was at a red light very close to the school when i had a green arrow i proceeded on driving straight until very suddenly a car had pulled out directly into the street inches in front of me, with very little time to even get my foot on the brake, i had smashed directly into the driver side of the other car.
I called one best friend of mine to teach me how to drive. He came to my place, took my car keys and drove us to a isolated place where i could learn driving, After 2-3 hour when we guys were very tired,so we thought of returning home. My friend came on the driving seat and started driving back us to home. On way back to home suddenly my car started jerking. We both started getting nervous.
All-Star games like the one I went to are where a lot of girls will be first seen by coaches. When I was playing my game two college coaches had approached me about continuing on to tryout for their teams. I had kept in touch with both schools throughout the summer. From this experience I had the opportunity to go visit these schools. My parents and I had to drive to Kansas to tour the two campuses and to try out to see if they had really wanted me.
I was so excited the night before it was the same kind of excitement i has as a kid on birthdays and christmas. I remembered trying to go to sleep all night and wake up just to see that it was only in the wee hours of the morning.I remember how i found out i was going i was sitting in the car on my way back from justin all star football game when his mom asked me what i was doing for the super bowl i told her that everybody was going to my aunt 's house but i wasn 't because me and my cousin always seemed to argue. I went on and on about it for 30 minutes before she engaged herself in the conversation. Miss Angie and i was so close that there was times when she would go out her way to involve me in stuff that her and her son did.I use to always ask her why she did so much and she told me it was because I was respectful and went out my way for her . As she began to ask question she first asked if i saw the heat beat the cavs last night, she was huge miami heat fan one of the reasons being that she had the biggest crush on their starting point guard Mario chalmers.
In early September my family and I took a trip up to State College, Pennsylvania for the Rutgers Penn State game. Even though it was not the outcome I wanted for my Scarlet Knights, we still had a great time. Just being there for only a couple minutes, I quickly learned that when you travel for an away game with your desired sports team, you are going to feel like the minority. Kickoff was at eight o’clock in the evening, so that meant my day started at eleven in the morning in “Happy Valley.” Driving into the college town, College Avenue was filled with vocal fans and vibrant colors of blue and white. From cheerleaders handing out stickers labeled “Unrivaled” to extremely loud “We Are” chants filling the town, State College was turning into New York City by the second.
When I get to my bus stop I like all my parents and they come pick me up but when they before they do that they yell at me like every other day when I get to school I go straight to the band room to drop off my bass clarinet.The bell rings as i head off to my f irst period Class. It is Mr tellano. Today we learned about religion and where they go Like heaven and hell and
My Senior year was supposed to be a a time to remember but it was not. I got into my first accident. My friend and I wanted to go eat after school. We all meet up in the parking lot. We decided to go to Chick fil a. Chick-fil-A was a long way from our school so we car pooled.
After dinner, we all got back int he car and started driving back home. We started singing along to songs on the radio. It was a long drive home, and we all enjoyed the whole ride. Katy Perry 's newest song at the time, "California Girls" was playing on the radio, and my aunt was trying to teach me the words. We were all so happy that day.
On a Sunny Saturday morning I get a call from my best-friend telling me it’s a party tonight and that we should go. My first reaction was to say I’ve never been to a college party and I don’t know what to expect, but I decided that it was a first time for everything and to just go have fun but little did I know what I was getting myself into. Walking into the party I found myself bombarded by people and no best friend. So, I find the closest chair by the bar and sit down. Next thing I know my best friends appears from the crowd and says, “I’m Sick.” First thing I do is put her in the car and leave.
