Personal Narrative Essay: The Day That Changed My Life

Decent Essays
The day I still remember that moment, and I still have it. The day I taught myself responsible with my things, the day that I 'll never forget. The day that changed my whole life, the day that made me who I am today. The day that I got my first bike for Christmas.
It was a bright and cold morning on December 25 of 2010. I woke up in the morning by the light shining on my face from the window and glare of the sun hitting off the icy window, I walked toward the window and my breath got taken away by how much snow there was; it 's been a long time since we had a white Christmas. Once I caught my breath I woke up my Michael and I showed him the snow outside and the same thing happened to him as it did to me. Then Mike and I walked quietly to my

As we were going down the stairs towards the living room with the Christmas tree and the presents. We approached the corner, I saw a wheel, and wondered what it is and as I got closer It started to come to me. My Mom and StepMom bought us all new bikes. All three of us burst with excitement and joy, our eye glowed like giant marbles in the sunlight, I was so excited as a kid in a candy shop. All three of exactly knew what bikes are who 's. When we were checking out our bikes, I think that my Mom and Step Mom heard us downstairs making a bunch of noise, but by the time we walked away from the bike my parents said It 's for you guys. We all ran back to the bike 's and sat on them to try them out, all the bikes were the same sizes. My bike was all black with shiny silver rims and spokes, it has neon green decals and stickers, and the seat had a green design on it. Michael 's bike was all orange with some black decals and stickers, and Jameson 's bike was all black too but with blue decals and …show more content…
Then I ran and grabbed my bike and went outside and my older brother joined me, We were both still in our pj 's and we didn 't care. It was tough to peddle but it got easier when I got moving because of all the snow, we both roads for the road and back without coats and only pages. We were so excited about getting bikes for Christmas we didn 't even care if we got cold or hurt. Then we started to lose feeling in our hands until we started to head home. On our way home my bike lost traction and I crash to the ground, I got a scratch on my elbow and a face full of snow. I got my bike up and checked if there was any damage to it, I found a small scratch on the side of the bike. I felt that something apart from me was hurt, not physical but more emotionally. On the first day, I got a scratch, I couldn 't believe that just happened. Jameson and I were right around the corner of our house and we just walked our bikes into the garage and got dried off, then got some warm cloths on and my nose was as red as Rudolph 's nose. I told my parents what happened, they weren 't mad but just disappointed because the bike was my responsibility and I failed on the first day. After the bike ride and the talk to my parents we finished up unwrapping presents and had some eggs, ham, bacon, scrabble with some hot chocolate for

    Passing countless road signs and construction zones, I kept thinking to myself if we were ever going to get there. My grandparents were going to meet us at the cabin after we got back from our first day of Holiday world, so they were driving separately. Sis would not keep quiet and I had no headphones or earplugs, so I felt like I was being driven nuts instead of my dad’s Silverado. Eventually my patience paid off and we pulled into a parking spot. I looked up and there was the raven.…

    I also remember all of the Christmas programs I used to have at church and school. One program all of the students including me got elf hats and at another program I had to sing a solo (the song was “Joy to the World”). I used to always do the Christmas countdown calendars and I remember waking up excited to open the calendars because the chocolate inside them was…

    As I was on my way to Santa's house I was upon the beautiful land were I lived. I didn't know that little Christmas spirit and fairs were all around me and inside, even though I couldn't see them. I felt as if I wanted to laugh and sing and be glad for the time being.

    I remember it all began when I was riding circles around my house with my “new” tricycle. I don’t know why but I loved that tricycle. Even when the trails were filled with brown dirt that gets in your eye and bumpy rocks than make you legs go numb after two minutes. Anyways, I was riding my tricycle and my legs were too numb to go on, so I stopped to get a break. I didn’t realize that taking that break would result in disaster.…

    After he took some pictures and he couldn’t see another car coming. He ran faster than we had ever seen him run across the 2 lane highway and disappeared down the hill. It felt like forever waiting for my dad to come up that hill, but my mom kept us busy. She told us to pack everything up and try to make everything neat since we probably had to get a rental car. Once we saw my dad come up the side of the hill with the tire, we were all praying that he would make it across the highway safely.…

    I peered under the hood to find that my dad already had my sixteen-dollar chrome air cleaner off and was adjusting the old Quadrajet. I looked with envy at the shiny Edelbrook carburetor that sat on a shelf to my left. I had wanted to replace my carburetor for a while, but I couldn’t justify the cost. My car was running well enough. It idled roughly, and like a spoiled child, refused to move if it thought it was too cold outside of the garage.…

    I did know that I was an easy quitter, but I really did not care; to be honest, it was kinda pathetic. One day, my dad came home from work and he basically took my bike out and dragged me to the park against my wanted terms. He held on the seat, as he told me to get on the bike. I began to ride and I started to wobble but he didn’t even let me fall once. I became confident that he would be there even if I did fall.…

    The Crash My brother and I love riding our dirt bikes, we had never been on a real trail to ride them that was not in our backyard. We had been wanting to go on a real trail for a while now, but we never had the chance to because other stuff like baseball and schoolwork got in the way. We were on our way to one now, and I had some mixed feelings about the trail because I couldn't wait to get back on my bike, but I was also a little nervous about the upcoming journey. To be honest I was a little more nervous than I was excited about going on the trail. In the car on the way to the trail my dad had warned me and my brother not to go to fast and not to dive crazily, we said that we knew and that we wouldn't.…
