Personal Narrative Essay: The Last Day Of School

Superior Essays
It was the last day of school of my freshman year. I stood at the doorway of my world history classroom counting down the seconds as Kelcie and I repeated, “Summer, summer, summer.” The bell finally rang and everyone started running to the parking lot. Everybody was rushing to go eat lunch and hang out with their friends. I on the other hand included myself into my neighbor, Taylor’s plans. He asked me if I would like to help him build a slip n’ slide but he never would’ve thought I’d invite my friends to enjoy it too. It was just the beginning of a long day that ended in a disaster. It all started on a sunny day when I went over to Taylor’s house to help him set up his slip n’ slide. He forgot to mention to me that it wasn’t an actual slip …show more content…
They helped make it more pleasurable for me but I still had had enough of sliding into a ditch. I talked my friends into going to my house to go swimming in my pool. They agreed that was a better plan than staying here. Of course the boys heard us, and they followed us to my house. My pool was packed with teenagers. My mom was about to have a fit, but she eventually got over it. My mom had recently bought a cheap volleyball net that one of the boys found in the pool storage box. We enjoyed playing volleyball. We continued to yell at each other. “It’s our ball!” “No, it’s our ball this round!” None of us actually knew the rules of volleyball but we acted like we did. After volleyball was over, we continued to stay in the pool and converse about whatever came to mind until dark. Everyone started leaving as the sun was setting. I had one friend, Kira, stay the night that night so she didn’t leave, but she didn’t expect these later events to occur. After everyone left, we took hot showers and laid in bed to watch Netflix, our favorite past time activity. We didn’t know we would be getting out of bed hours later after we started watching …show more content…
I replied and told him we would be over there shortly since she lives only four houses from mine. By the time we were ready to go, they had already left and were back at his house. I knew my mom wasn’t going to let us go over to his house this late at night so I asked to just go over to his aunt’s house to play ping pong since that was the original plan. My parents said that was fine if we were home by midnight. We arranged for the boys to pick us up on the corner of my street instead of walking all the way to his house. We were pulling into his driveway when my mom calls me. “Allyson why are you at Taylor’s house and not Mrs. Lori’s house?” my mom yelled, “You told us you were just going to her house to play ping pong and yet you’re at his house.” I replied, “How did you know I was at his house?” She explained, “You sounded guilty so I asked your dad to track you.” We were busted. We walked home in shame. I walked into the house and headed straight to my room before my parents could stop me. They call me from downstairs and down I go to be punished. “Allyson, you are grounded for a week.” I was not happy at all. It was literally the first day of summer and I was already grounded for simply lying about where I was. The beginning of that summer couldn’t have gone any
