Narrative Essay: A Personal Experience In High School

Amazing Essays
Narrative Essay One tremendously windy Monday morning, the sky shifted gloomy shades of grey above my home in the land of 10,000 lakes: Minnesota. My loathsome alarm yet again woke me with its vexatious sound, as it does Monday through Friday. It took me an unpleasant 30 minutes to get myself out of bed and into the shower. After showering and picking out a nice cozy outfit, I dashed upstairs to grab a quick breakfast before heading to an early choir rehearsal. In a surprisingly pleasant turn of events I noticed my loving mother had made me chocolate chip pancakes before she left for work at Canterbury Park. Making a regular appearance in my childhood, chocolate chip pancakes naturally became my all-time favorite breakfast. After devouring …show more content…
It was the week of my high schools celebrate choir concert, so I knew sure as hell that I had no choice of being late. It was the most important concert of the year and included oodles of choreography and immense songs from movies and video games. While I was driving eagerly to school across Highway 13, I drifted across a big patch of black ice. I slammed on the breaks and the smell of burnt rubber filled the inside of my car. As a result of skidding, I scraped the side of my car leaving a huge scratch from hitting a barrier. I proceeded to keep driving and got myself back onto the road. After such a wild eventful morning, I arrived at school safe and sound and ran to my choir rehearsal. Early choir practice was uneventful, and school was just dreadful. During lunch, my mom texted me informing me that we had dinner reservations that night at Benihana’s. “What a wonderful treat”, I thought, as I looked at the cold pasta and soggy salad on my tray. Naturally, the last 3 hours of school went by terribly slow as I kept thinking of the delicious hibachi dinner I was going to be able to indulge in that night. Thinking back to the special breakfast and now a fancy dinner, something for sure had to be up. My family was not often found going out to dinner together, for no reason at all. I wondered what it could be. Did my sister and her boyfriend get engaged? Are we moving? Did my dad …show more content…
I wasn’t able to see more than twenty feet in front of me because there was so much snow plunging. I got into my car and cautiously drove home due to the fact that I had almost got in a bad accident that same morning. While cruising out of the high school parking lot, I was determined to put on some music. Without notice, the car in front of me slammed on their breaks and I ran into their rear bumper. Luckily, it was one of my friends from school and I didn’t leave ant mark what so ever. I couldn’t believe the series of events that happened to me throughout the day and was beyond ready to get to home. I reached my cozy household and was about to take a long nap when I found a to-do list waiting for me on the kitchen counter. The list stated: Finish laundry and fold clothes, load the dishwasher, and vacuum the upstairs. I finished my chores as fast as possible so I could get a start on my homework and we could head out to dinner and I could finally figure out what we were

    I skipped school to take my behind-the-wheel drivers test. Both of my parents came to support me while my body was crawling with nerves. I didn’t really drive often before this so, I didn’t really know what to expect and felt like I would make dumb mistakes that all older, experienced drivers knew about. I’m not going to go through the whole processes of my test step by step because it’s pretty self explanatory, but long story short, I got my license. While all my friends had their own cars, I had to drive my dad’s car which is a 2014 White Toyota Highlander.…

    The only excitement we endured during that 5-hour lesson was our eating break. During our eating break we came up with the idea that, we should have some fun before our finals began the next day. One of my closest friend said, “I think the racing park have activities today, we should go and lime a little and then come back to school.” We all agreed with her. So, we hid away our school bags in the classrooms just incase someone came to search the rooms. We walked out of the school together and flagged down an oncoming yellow taxi cab; before we entered the cab, we asked what the price for him was to take us to racing park.…

    We visited and had family over and I watched my mom prepare dinner for a small during Thanksgiving. I hated that during Thanksgiving I would watch my mother would put this ginormous turkey in the oven at night and then I would go to bed expecting that I could help, or at least watch when she resumed, only for me to wake up and find that the entire dinner was just about complete. I don’t know if she prepared dishes during the week or if she only pretended to go to bed so that I could get out of her way, probably the latter, but she prepared it all with no help. The tradition was that my mom would slave for hours, sleep for minutes, and serve everyone at dinner time; I definitely inherited that from her. Christmas was smaller, the siblings would come by to collect gifts and grab something to eat but there was still a tremendous sense of family, those were the best times of the year.…
