Sara And The Appropriate-Personal Narrative

Good Essays
Legs shaking, heart beating, yet it feels like my world had completely frozen. Thinking back to what my mom told me on the phone, I regretted I didn’t take every of her word from our conversion seriously. It was a summer afternoon; it felt like any other summer days. It was hot and humid from the summer heat. That day, in the morning I went to meet up with my two closest friends: Sara and Melanie. I met Sara in 6th grade and we had been friends for ten years. Sara is a unique friend. To me, she’s one of those friends that you can share everything with and I mean everything. And sometimes I share a bit too much with her. She’s very blunt and a bit too honest sometimes, but that’s what I like about her. While Melanie is another close friend …show more content…
The parking lot was very cramped and the drive through was narrow so I had to park my car very carefully. After getting off the car, we decided to explore downtown. After an hour of walking around, we decided to go back to our usual hangout place because we couldn’t find any place which was fun to us. While walking to the elevator which will take us to our parking lot level, I found two guys standing in front of the elevator already. When we all got in, I realized we were all heading to the same floor. Just when I got off the elevator, my mom called. My mom loves to worry. She would always call me to check on me which makes me feel loved. Ever since I started driving, my mom would always call me when I go out with my car. She would always ask me where I am and tell me to be extra careful following a personal story of hers’. How she once got into an accident or how others got into an accident because they were being careless. After telling me to be extra careful she would also add on what happen to one of my relative’s personal car accident story. She asked me where I was and I told her, “I’m in downtown right now and I’m heading home now because it’s too crowded”. Since mandarin was my mom’s main language, our whole conversion was in mandarin. Upon mentioning where I was, she started giving me a whole lecture of how I should be careful and drive extra careful when I’m out. After …show more content…
After leaving all my information down, I drove my friends back home. The drive back home felt completely different from when we drove to downtown. We were all very quiet during the drive back home, there was no sign of excitement that was once there. We stayed quiet as I kept replaying what happened. Later that day, all I could do was reflect on my mistake, thinking that I could do something even though I couldn’t. However, at the same time, I thought it was an important experience for me since this incident will make me think carefully before I do something next time. The incident will remind me what would happen if I ever am ignorant of something

    The nerves stayed with me even when I arrived at the DMV with my sister and even while waiting to be called. While I was finally called, I put on a brave face for my sister and my dad, who left work early to go to the DMV for my test. I got into the car and did the pre-test that included: honking the horn, turning on the left and right blinkers, and flashing the headlights. After the initial questions the actual driving part of the driving test began. I drove around the area with the instructor silently sitting next to me giving me a small heart attack every time she wrote on her clipboard.…

    I was going with Deca, a business club, to tour American Airlines stadium, and learn the marketing and sales behind the Dallas Mavs. It was 7:30 in the morning when I received a group text from my mom, “They have lungs perfect for Mimi, she is being prepped for surgery now.” Overwhelmed with fear and joy, I started to research everything I could find out about lung transplants.

    She believed the story and everything about it. My dad and I got in the car and took that twenty-minute drive which was spent listening to music and not talking. On that car ride I think of things that I am going to tell my mom and what I need to complain to her about and stuff that she just needs to know. When I see the Shalom Cemetery sign I realize that all of that thinking was for nothing, because I know that once I get in front of her grave I will be speechless, and not know what to say. That’s when I pull out the book knowing that she will love, not only Hope for the Flowers, but also hearing me read.…
