It was 86 degrees my socks were soaked, my water was already warm and I’d just gotten it like 2 minutes ago. I was only 5 and I was walking next to the stroller where my 3 year old brother was, my 7 year old brother was on the other side. We were walking around in “Animal Kingdom” not knowing what to do (I didn’t know that was possible.) We finally found a dino playground (it was a regular playground but they put a dinosaur at the front) I ran straight to the base of it before my mom even finished her sentence I was so excited, little did I know what would happen next.
It was less than a second, maybe half a second, but it changed everything. It was late at night after a soccer game. I was laying down in my room, coloring in a picture book, when my parents called me downstairs. After my sister and I walked downstairs, we were told to sit on the couch. Apparently my parents had something important to tell us, i didnt really realize what was going to happen because I was younger, so I sat on the couch smiling widely.
However going down a dirt road with a buzzed driver and three girls on a back of a four-wheeler did seem like an awesome and quite brilliant idea at the time. But as luck would have it, we were so wrong! We were coming up to a corner going thirty to thirty-five mph and at first it seemed like my uncle was not going to turn the corner. He made it seem as if he was going to enter the field where the corner began. Considering my cousin Samantha lived just behind that field, but he turned really sharp. Jerked it you might say. When he did, it seemed like time was slowing down. I vividly remember the look of Samantha face as she flew off the side of the for-wheeler. Her eyes grew wide as she realized she was no longer on the for-wheeler's side, but flying in the air. Gravity began to take action she was soon sliding face down on the hard rough dirt road. Before the impact she let out a heart shattering scream. I became paralyzed in my spot due to the shock. Our Uncle stopped immediately when he heard the same heart shattering scream. He ran to her checking out her injuries before
Over the summer I volunteered with kids helping them learn math and just ensuring they had a fun. We also took them on field trips and played games with them. One day in the summer one of the two teachers called and said they weren't going to come in that day because they were sick. That created the problem of what were we gonna do with 30 children from 3rd to 6th grade and for two hours now that one of the teachers won't be there. My objective was to make sure those kids had a fun day at camp.I ended up coming up with the idea of googling arts and crafts since we already had paint and paper. I ended up finding this really cool elephant we could make; it would take like maybe thirty minutes to make. After that, I found this cool art trick with tape, paper, and paint and that took care of the time and it occupied the kids.
One day in Michigan, we decided to go to Lake Michigan. We went to the beach. It was one of those it's-very-windy type of days. At the beach there was giant dunes the size of small mountains. So we decided to climb up the dunes. When we got to the top it looked like we could see the whole world. My mom and Justin decided to walk down the safe path.. Me on the other I decided to run down the sandy dune. So I ran as fast as I could jumping when you jump it feels like you jumped the the whole dune when I got to the middle I jumped again and when I landed the was a log in front of me I hit the log and tumbled the whole way down the dune. Once I stopped I realized how much I got hurt. I had cuts all over me and a giant scar that
With my friend I decided to ride the the best roller coaster that Six Flags had,and after the ride , I felt very proud that I had ridden a big roller coaster for once in my life without being scared. When I got on, I was exited about going on the big rollrcoaster, and there was a huge drop. My friend was really scared but I was excited. I told my friends "I want the red won". Blue, green and red were suppost to race, but everybody know that the red one always wins but I was just riding it for fun. So we did the huge drop and it looked like I would hit a wood beam butI passed underneath. Then I went up and down and up again. The second drop wasn't as big as the first but
My older sister Peyton did not want to go on the zipline because she had already done it before when she went to 6th grade camp. My Dad went up desk and paid for two tickets, one for me and one for my sister Lauryn. First we had to step through a harness and buckle it around our waste. Next, we had to put on a red helmet that had the company's logo and a strap to put around our neck. Once all of our safety gear was on we moved to the tall platform. I could hear my heart starting to pound out of my chest. I was beginning to have second thoughts. I could feel my hair blowing in the wind. It was time for me to go. The man pushed me off the platform. Suddenly my feet were dangling in mid air. I felt like I was flying in the sky. Beneath us were people playing mini golf. I was wondering what would happen if I fell down, but I realized that I was going to be safe and that it would be unrealistic. Once we reached the end of the zip line we had to walk all the way back to where we started. We went on the zipline again because my parents got the tickets where you got to go two times. After that, we thanked our parent because we knew that this was something that we were going to remember. My sister Peyton also regretted not going on the ride because she saw how much fun we really had. This is a time where my sister and I had the courage to do something that most people don’t get a chance to do at a
On Christmas morning I woke up at 6:30. I was so tired but still enthusiastic. I was trying so hard to get my parents to come down stairs so I could open up my presents. When they finally
My group was nearing the end of a chilly small hike in the Idyllwild trails, and it was then when I realized that we were approaching the Skycoaster. The Skycoaster was a very intimidating ride in which you would be pulled up 40 feet high and then swung like a pendulum at relatively fast speeds. What made the situation worse was that I absolutely hated roller-coasters. As we were approaching the Skycoaster, I witnessed another instructor from a different group on the Skycoaster; he was screaming his lungs out. At last, we arrived at the dreadful Skycoaster. My palms were sweating, my body temperature skyrocketed, and my stomach felt like butterflies were ramming from the inside-out. We had to assemble and wear a full-body harness that literally felt like a full-steel armor set from the medieval age. My instructor led our group to the Skycoaster several yards forward, and nearly everyone was ecstatic to go on the ride except for me and a few other kids. Somehow, my instructor noticed myanxiety, and decided to choose me as the first person to ride the Skycoaster. I had to choose now whether I really wanted to go or not. My mind was going haywire, one side of me told me that I should not go and that the frightening experience would scar me for life; the other side told me that I need to go or else the other kids would make fun of me. However, I succumbed to the peer pressure, and I realized that this experience is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so I finally decided to ride the Skycoaster. I hooked on the rope, then I was suddenly yanked up 40 feet high in the air. I thought to myself, "There is no turning back now, so might as well get over it." Suddenly, I pulled the cord and my body swung at extremely fast speeds like a ragdoll. It was an addranealine rush for the first few swings, and after those swings, I regained my senses. At the end,
We were heading our way towards Outer Banks, North Carolina. We were dodging in and out of traffic throwing goldfish at our family members behind us. We drove for 8 hours to stay at a pretty cool motel with a pool so we could spend more time at the beach. As we arrived to the motel we were all slumped from the ride and started to unload everything. As everyone started to slowly settle in there rooms I would laugh at the amount of people that woke up from the long car ride and fall right back to sleep. I was one of the last to wake up from our naps holding my family up from taking pictures on the beach. My family and I finally make it down to the
It all started with a bike, let me tell you how it all started…. It was a calm day, my brother, Blake, his friend, also named Blake, and our nanny Rebekah were all riding bikes. My brother’s friend was using mine, so I had to ride on the peg of my nanny’s bike. So we were riding when suddenly,”CRASH”! Next thing I knew, I was on the sidewalk. “AHHHHH,” I screamed in pain. my foot had slid into the bike wheel (it hurt). My brother came running down the hill screaming, GARRETT! My nanny layed me down on the couch. My brother’s friend suggested I watch bike fail videos to cheer me up, and it worked! After that I was on the couch for pretty much the entire day, but the first thing that came to my mind, MOM.I was afraid that my mom would fire Rebekah for what happened.
February 2012: it was a sunny day with blue skies and birds chirping. I was on my way home from school. I was going to take a nap due to the lack of sleep i had last night, but i had to do homework first. so shortly after i heard the door screech open and it was my mother. She came to check on me and asked what i was doing
There are a couple times when I’ve used Bottom-up processing (p. 124) at some of my jobs. One time was when I had first my job at Magic Waters. I was told to set all the cabanas up and stock the mini fridge. Which was the only thing I was never taught. I was unable to ask for help because we were opening in less than 10 minutes. Even though, I had no clue how things were set up. Therefore, I imagined how they would be normally be put together. Then, once they were nicely set I found the refreshments in the storage for the fridges. Another time is at my current job which is at Pizza Hut. My manager told me to take over the cut table. Cutting the pizzas were self-explanatory. It was just the additional items the customers wanted on their pizza
After a while, we went on a huge rollercoaster. I thought my heart was going to jump out of my body. As the roller coaster made it to the top, I thought I was going to drown in my own sweat and tears. I started to panic and jump out of my seat but my dad told me to stop and sit down. When I made it to the top, I could see the whole Disneyland. For a second there was, the drop! All the tears and sweat in my body moved to the top of my head and I closed my eyes and let out the biggest scream. Bam, I couldn't hear anything over the high pitch noise of the bolts rattling behind us. I thought that I was just falling, falling, falling. After what felt like an eternity we finally made it down. I stepped out of my wet seat and almost hugged the ground. That was the scariest thing I have ever done, but felt I had to do that roller coaster again. Then, there was a young boy inviting us to a show as he
Denver was beautiful, we drove to our ski resort and it started to snow. I live in texas so seeing it snow made me so ecstatic. Me and my sister wrapped ourselves in blankets, turned on the fireplace and at there looking at the snow and hearing the fire crackle. We woke bright in the morning, to put on our gear. Me and my sister raced to the ski lift. After someone taught us how to ski, we got on our board and just skied it was so much fun. It was lunchtime and we went to a restaurant that was the best at cooking shellfish. We went in and saw a employer that barfed we taught it was nothing so we just went inside to enjoy our time. My dad and my mom got lobster with garlic bread. Me and my sister got oysters, crab, and shrimp. We all shared what we got and we were super
