Personal Narrative: My Adventure To Florida

The Adventures to Florida
It was a hot summer morning, my mom was at work, while my dad was at the house purchasing plane tickets. I had no idea that we would be going to Florida this summer. As much as I wanted to be excited I wasn’t. It was a tough decision I had to make with myself because if I wanted to be on the volleyball team I had to stay and commit to volleyball camp. The only thing that really upset me was that our trip to Florida was on the same day as volleyball camp. Having to choose between something I love and something else I love really disappointed me. So of course I chose to go on the vacation with my family, because they are way more important to me. At first, I wasn’t so excited to go because I wasn't sure if volleyball camp would be equal in experience as the vacation. But as much as I argued, with my dad about going to volleyball instead of Florida, he wouldn’t let me go. The only reason he wouldn’t let me stay and do volleyball camp was because he wanted to be with his whole family.

After being in such a tropical and beautiful place you realize how shitty the place you live in is. But everything came to an end when we were boarding the plane heading home. I was so sad to be leaving but at the same time I was really happy to be heading home. On my way back home the flight was really great because the stewardess was really funny, and there was something about her that felt comfortable, and I actually wasn’t nervous on this plane ride. The stewardess also kept giving us free drinks which was a bonus. I was so thankful have have been able to go to Florida this summer. But Texas will always be my

    I suddenly thought to myself, talking to myself in my head almost arguing with myself about how foolish it would have been of me to not attend such an amazing getaway; physical and mental. The plane ride was a breeze. I slowly walked off the plane excited but nervous to loud singing and colorful fruit drinks waiting for me while I waited for my bags to come. Another cousin of mine around the same age as me flew together and rode in the taxi together to the villa where we were staying. Driving through the open roads of Punta Cana, smelling this different air that I was not used to being in the U.S. in the city was a great feeling.…

    My Disney Cruise Vacation My most memorial event would have to be when I went on the Disney Cruise Line for a vacation with my family. There were so many fun activities to do while on the cruise. My favorite place to go would be going to the “Edge” room with some new friends. When I came the first day in the game room I did not have any friends, so the first couple of days it was fun, but also boring at some points since I did not know anyone at the time. The other place I enjoyed going to is called the “Vibe”.…

    When I was 12 years old, my father felt elated as he was working to help us obtain a US residence card. As many families in Mexico, the lack of employment there, prevented us to have a stable economic status. At that age, I couldn’t find any motive to go to the United States. As a kid, life was exceptional at that moment because I had my friends whom I could spend most of my afternoons with playing soccer, watching movies, and joking about things. In fact, I tried to invent numerous excuses to not think about going to the United States since I didn’t want to leave Mexico.…

    There were all kinds of things to do in the city and I had to choose something to do on the day my aunt was off work. I love all sports but I have to say only one of them makes me feel the freedom of being an American. If you don’t like baseball you don’t like freedom. My uncle told me about the A’s when I was younger but never would take me to see them. I always wanted to see them play and finally got the chance to see them several years later.…

    With my girlfriend living so close I made it through the school year without having to ride the bus and I always had a ride when we wanted to go places. I soon began to lose all interest in driving, which at one time had been one of my favorite things in life. It was not until I started work for the summer that it set in that I would soon need to start driving again. I had applied at a marina in Deltaville Virginia near my grandpa’s house and was hired on the spot. I have always loved the water and wanted to get away from the busy city for the summer but I soon came to realize that not having a car and the fear of driving was ruining my work plans.…
