    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.…

    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.…

    High School Graduation Most people rejoice when they graduate because they finished their high schools. Also, people will consider and treat them as adults, but I was not one of them. I was sad when I graduated from high school because I lost my direction and aim in life. I was saying myself to myself, “just graduate from high school and everything will be ok”. After I graduated, I did not know what to do or where to go and that was because the last year in high school, I applied to the wrong university, and I could not decide which major I wanted.…

    I had to stay about every day after school to retake tests and relearn the material. This made me feel down on myself, but I changed everything once I changed my study skills which made school so much easier and my grade started to go up. Sophomore year was full of memories with my friends, from the time we had to go to a varsity baseball practice and had to run 3 miles, to when we got in trouble for coming back from lunch 30 minutes…

    After my parents left, I felt so lonely, especially since I didn 't see any students around, and then I realized I was too early. Back in my Vietnam school starts at 6:30 am, so it would normally be crowded at that hour. Therefore, school in the United States is different. I have been told that I could get some breakfast in school 's cafeteria, so I thought there would be some students over there. In addition, if I was lucky enough I could find some Vietnamese friend who could help me and became my translator for the next few days and a best friend forever in the future.…

    Freshman year was simply a fresh start and time to grow up. I remember my 3 best friends and I worrying on the first day about where we were going to sit in the cafeteria. It was difficult being new to high school and trying to fit in, the last thing we wanted to do was to ruffle the feathers of an upper classman. As a freshman, you do everything possible to try to not stick out but when you feel and look so excluded from the rest of the student body, it is difficult. We kept in mind that it was also everyone else’s first day of something new too and maybe they were feeling the same way.…
