Personal Narrative: A Changed Girl

Improved Essays
Dazed and confused I wandered out the car a changed girl forever... Now most people don’t really flip cars in their lifetime. It really is a rare thing almost like pandas. Waking up that morning I did not intend to flip a car but that is exactly what I did. It was a regular school day. I only had two classes at school so I always came late and left early. On this particular day I had a waxing appointment about thirty minutes after I go out of school. I was headed out the school doors ready to get the first waxing ever in my life.

As I looked around terrified, I thought to myself, “how did this happen?”. After coming back down to Earth, I realized that Kace was still with me. I called his name twice and he didn’t answer.
