“Wake up” Mom yelled, all the way from downstairs I could hear her. I checked on the time and it was already 6:00 am when we were supposed to leave. I jumped out of bed, ran to my closet and started getting ready for our road trip to Chicago. When I got down stairs, everyone was running around the house, trying to get ready. Mom was getting her makeup on, Dad was taking a shower, Alyssa was getting dressed and Garrett and I were the only ones ready.
We arrived at the rental house, it took dymon a long time to arrive.But when dymon pulled up to the house, I hid in the bathroom and jumped out and surprised her. She was so happy to see me, it was like the best moment every like i missed her. We went outside and played basketball with her brother and her cousins. We came in and ate dinner and song happy birthday to her granddad. After we song happy birthday , it was time to start heading home.
I was in Flowood, Alabama in late June for my baseball State Championship game. I was with my friend on the baseball team, my mom and dad, my brothers, sister, and grandparents. It was like a 4 hour road trip. During the road trip we ate at chick-fil-a. Also, when we got to the hotel, we got situated and then went swimming and ate supper.
One day in July, my Aunt Beeh asked me and my sister Tiffany if we could pick up her daughters’ from their dads’ house in Atlanta. We both knew that our mom wouldn’t have a problem with us taking a day trip to Atlanta. However we knew our dad would say no. Our mom just told us “Just tell him you’re going halfway to pick them up.” And that’s exactly what we did. After we got his approval we left for Atlanta the next morning.
San Antonio It was five months after I realized that we were serious, five months and two days both of our families were getting together to go out of town to San, Antonio Texas. You have to take the time to realize it was both of our own families together who have hardly ever met, to be together for two days. Though I was nervous, it never scared me for the fact that it was her I was going to be with for two days. The day came, it was the mid-July up at six am ready to hit the road ready for this small getaway. It was me with my mother, my girlfriend and her sister in one car, the rest of her family went into another separate car which was her mother, brother and sister in law.
The reason that my mom,dad,and I went to Jacksonville was for my mom to go to training school for Dollar General.Since we went the week before school started,we also went school clothes shopping.We stayed in a huge hotel.On the second day, my dad and I had decided to drive down to the beach and fishing peer.My dad and I didn’t get to stay long because we had to go to open house to meet my teachers. While we were waiting for my mom to get out of class,we decided to ahead and start school clothes shopping.The mall that we went to was huge mall.The mall was also in Orange Park and it had a big movie theater.The Belk in there had an escalator and I rode on it.The shops that we went to was Payless,Hot Topic,and Rue 21.When I rode the escalator
Golden Corral.” We chanted over and over again until we arrived. It was seven o’clock at night, and all we wanted to do was eat as fast as we could and as much as we could to hold us over for the next four and a half hours of our journey that was ahead of us. “We’ll get there eventually.” We spent the rest of the four hours struggling to stay awake, and praying that none of us would vomit from the rancid food we all devoured, movie after movie blasting through the DVD player on the bus. We wanted nothing more than to finally reach our hotel and go to sleep, having suffered the longest and most treacherous journeys that most of us had ever experienced. Finally, at 11:30 at night we arrived at our hotel.
My bags were completely packed for our upcoming trip to Charleston, South Carolina. I had been waiting for this seemingly perfect trip for the whole summer. When we arrived at our cabin, it was less than what we expected; much less. The private cottage was extremely outdated. When we first walked in, you could hear my mother shriek after she spotted a cockroach near the fireplace.
Once they all re joined at the table, they talked for about two hours. They finished their food in forty-five minutes but they just sat there and talked about whatever came to mind. It was a normal dinner for them but after they left they went straight back to their apartment. Emily and Sara both walked back to their rooms claiming that they were tired while everyone else gathered in the living room to watch the new season of American Horror Story that was premiering. “Oh my god I ship Tate and Violet so much,” Ariana fangirled.
I ran to my father dangling my arm yelling “DAD I BROKE MY ARM!” He didn’t believe me at first, but once he saw my arm he knew it was true. Luckily, a family friend –who was a cardiologist- was there and helped us to the emergency room 15 minutes away. I was nine years old when this occurred and it significantly influenced my decision of pursuing medicine. But I didn’t have time to dwell on the minutia, because the majority of my adolescence was spent working at my parents’ restaurant after school. I would bus tables, take to-go orders, roll silverware in napkins, and drop off catering orders near and far.
