My first Tuesday, I was in such a great denial, admittedly, this was also the day I realized I wanted change. I remember so clearly the patient look on his face when I sat in the car, the phone on my ear. I realize now I was wasting time that could 've been with him. I remember sitting with him, worried that he would suddenly drop at anytime, but as time progressed, it didn 't even seem like he was going, he was just there, teaching me. Our last lesson was the best though, we sat there, conversing like the old friends we now were, the death and age clearly showing on his face.
I slept during the trip. I was tired like yesterday, but I enjoyed this day, I really loved the trip. How my parents bought fast food in a store, my mother just dished up the dinner, this was at 18:30pm. Before to take the dinner, I saw the wall, and I didn’t like so much, but I can do nothing, so, the most important is that the wall is different and more comfortable. While we was dinning, we watched a movie.
Hello everyone! I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the semester and a lovely winter break. Just a little more about me, I went to Catalina Magnet High School and one of my favorite memories from that time was taking the bus home. Sure waiting was a pain, especially in the hot sun, but riding the bus was so relaxing to me because it allowed me to clear my mind and just listen to my music. Another tidbit from my life, I originally came to Pima to be a veterinary technician but quickly changed my mind shortly after completing my prerequisite courses.
Things used to be different. I used to go to school, laugh uncontrollably at lunch with all of my goofy friends and hoped that I would have time to spend with my boyfriend during the weekend. I used a name that my mom and dad gave me. The only thing I had to worry about was getting good grades… but now I worry for my family. I worry about how we can survive for another week.
Believe me! Before we left we made sure we had only the stuff we needed to make the ride easier, because the trip didn’t take days It took months. Then we left unknowing what was ahead. Something great or something awful. Days went by and my back started to hurt from sleeping in the wagon we were riding in.
When recess or free time came around each school day, after lunch, some guys including my older brother would shoot baskets and play games with teams. Sadly, I never got chosen because “I was a girl and knew nothing about sports”. Although this upset me, I didn’t take it to heart. I started practicing at home with kids in my neighborhood. After weeks or maybe even months of practice, my older brother then noticed how good I was getting at the sport.
My brothers got super bored that they went to the Goliath but not by themselves they forced me to go. Next, my idea was to go to the restroom but it was no use we were stuck in the line for about a whole hour. I felt really scared because I remembered that I used to watch videos about horrible accidents that happened on rollercoasters. At this point I could not do anything so I just decided to ride it and to just get over with it. Finally we got on and it started to move my hands were shaking because of how scared I was.
The bus had to pull over and the bus driver had to check the engine. By the time she checked the engine it was 3:30.I got home around 4:00 which put me 30 minutes behind schedule. I finally arrive at softball practice around 5:30 Alabama time, 6:30 Georgia time. That is really bad because it is suppose to start at 6:00 Georgia time and 5:00 Alabama time. My coach didn’t scream (thank the lord) but I didn’t really have to worry about that because my coach isn’t really a screamer.
When I took the bus to work this morning I had to sit with somebody else because the bus was so full. Usually that wouldn’t be a problem, because in Norway we just ignore the person who sits next to you, but apparently its not the same here. The women next to me started to ask were I was headed, were I came from and all those weird questions, and I was like, mind your own business…
Shoe Narrative It was a calm peaceful drive to work for this morning. The leaves on the trees were almost all gone, although a few still held onto their orange and yellow covering. The late fall atmosphere also allowed me to see the beautiful golden sunrise every morning while driving to the hospital for work. I was running a little late today because of a slow start, but everyone at the hospital knows when they are working with me, they will not start on time. Many times people comment on my late arrivals and say that they are always on time even with kids to raise, but I simply comment on how I am glad my children are away in college.
