Personal Narrative: My Last Spring Break

Improved Essays
Last spring break I was hoping to relax and have fun. Most of my friends had left to go to the beach and enjoy their week off of school. I was hoping to do the same, but my spring break was not what I had planned. When I had got home from school I learned my grandma had fallen and was in the hospital. Over the next month my family struggled, but ultimately came together to support and encourage my grandma throughout her recovery. When I came home Friday after school, I was ready to sit down and relax for the next week. I had been dreaming about no homework, especially spanish homework, sleeping in, and just spending time with my friends for what seemed like months now. It was finally spring break and I was ready to enjoy it and be stress free for the week. Sadly my spring break did not turn out as I had planned. Instead of being stress free and being able to sleep in, I was more stressed than I had ever been and I could not sleep because I was so worried about how my grandma was feeling. One of the worst feelings is knowing that your loved one is in pain, but you have no way to end the pain for them. Ever since I was younger, my grandma has …show more content…
Her arm healed well and the incision did not leave a scar on her arm like that doctor thought it possible could have. Now I try to spend as much time with my grandma as possible. You never know what life has in store for you, so live life to its fullest. I am thankful for my family and friends who not only helped my grandma, but also helped me when I was scared of what could happen. Even though some of my friends were on spring break, they still made me feel loved. I hope if they are ever in a similar situation that I show them as much love as they showed me. Everyone goes through a rough patch throughout their life ,and having supporting and loving friends and family to help you through those times makes them seem less

    I happened to be around eleven or twelve years old when my dad told me that he decided that he wanted to get a divorce with my mom. At the time that age can be key because it was not super young nor super old. The day he told me the news I felt my heart break, the silence was so quiet you could hear a feather hit the ground. I felt so much emotional pain that I could not even bring tears to my eyes. It was such a sad moment in my life because I did not see it happening to me or my family.…

    I remember I stayed home from school that day just because I didn’t feel like going to a certain class that week. It was the first day of school I ever missed that year and I can’t help but to think God was on my side when I chose that day because that day was a day I will never forget. It was the day I finally had my high school reality check. My phone was blowing up with all kinds of hateful texts from Sasha, from Alexis, even from Millie, another distant friend of mine. All these texts were about things I said and did behind people’s backs.…

    We also had mention of a record deal coming down the pipeline. I finally said screw it and when I came home from practice one night, I had a long talk with my parents about the future of my life and where I saw myself when I was older. They could see I wasn’t interested in school anymore. I would come home from school every day, go straight to the practice space, we’d all hang out and write music until 10 or 11 and then I’d come home and go to bed. On the weekends we would play two sometimes three shows all over New England and sometimes even down the east coast.…

    “Where is Tyler?” Normally, this could have been an easily answered question, considering Tyler was my boyfriend I was normally with him. This Thursday we were lucky enough to have a 2 and a half early dismissal and no school Friday, so I had plans with a friend of mine to hang out and I was waiting for him to come home from work. When my friend, Savannah, called me, I expected it to be the regular question she would ask: “Can you take me to ___?”. This was not the case on January 14th, 2016. The year that has brought so much joy, I’ve paid off my car, I’ve moved out of my parents’ house and I graduated high school, started as the worst year of my life.…

    It was my first time playing on a high school sport, and even making the JV team. She didn't respect me or Jaclyn the rest of the season because of this, the season is over two months long and this was the first week. She never played Jaclyn, I was the only setter so she had no choice but to play me, but if I didn't play that position I wouldn't have played either. I am still upset about it today even though this happened a year ago. Since we didn't do anything wrong, we should not have been punished.…
