Personal Narrative: Observation In Latin America

Amazing Essays
It’s Monday, December 9th. Today just seems unusual, like something big is going to happen! I wonder what it will be for a split second, then go back to studying for the Latin America quiz we have tomorrow. Mr. Fielder announces what questions we should highlight on our worksheets. I watch him go back to his desk. I look up and out the window, I see the glistening shimmer of fresh snow dancing in the sky. I cherish every second of it, wishing the time would go by slower. As time creeps closer to 12:20 p.m., the more I shudder at the thought of having to go to room 224. I finish making my flashcards, using splendid handwriting, and proper spelling and grammar. The clock whispers 12:18 p.m. in my ear, I turn white as a ghost. “Good work today …show more content…
The elevator tells me we settled, on the last floor, with a ding, and a screech, elevator doors open. I step out unsteadily. There is only one hallway in the basement, that leads to the only classroom and back to the elevator, or stairs. The classroom is dead ahead. Mr. Fiedler must have let us out really early. I reach the door, it has the body of an oval, with two black windows, but you can’t see anything through them. The door is scorching hot with a massive layer of ash. Scarcely attached to the door, is a charred Christmas wreath buried behind dozens of murky chains. Cautiously, I grab my plastic flimsy ruler. Snap! I break the ruler on my leg, holding my fingers as distant as I possibly can, I swiftly open the door, with only half, of the injured ruler …show more content…
A roar of anger blows up the classroom, that is now on the other side of the bookcase. I wonder around the room questioning which path to take. I pace over to the introduction of each path. As I look down the long hallway, I notice a cry for help coming behind one of the doors. I want to go and see what is going on, but the Mrs.Berntson has demolished ,most of the bookcase. And that was my cue to leave! I break to spiral stair case, skipping each step until I reach the ruling platform. I trudge over to the balcony and peek over. Right as I glance at the bookcase Mrs.Berntson charges though it

    “Yes.” I zipped my bag shut and quickly walked away from the desk and out the library door. “Ok! I’ll be here when you get back!” I heard her yell as I shut the door behind me. I tried to calm myself down as I walked down the hallway to the bathroom, but every step I took seemed to cause the ice cold chill to perforate my body. I increased my walking speed until I was almost running down the hall, but, because my luck is even worse than I like to admit.…

Hastily Berry answered “ If I were you I’d stay here tonight, there is a snow storm brewing outside”.

    My books would be knocked out of my arms and onto the floor and I would get pushed against lockers. I was too scared to tell my parents, so I would do my best to hide the bruises on my arms and legs. I vividly remember a moment when I was opening my locker and a folded paper fell to the floor. I picked it up and shakily opened it up. On the sheet, someone had scribbled different ways in which I could kill myself.…

    It was dark but not pitch black, there was sunlight peeking through the window, which was covered with wood that you can tell the person who placed it there was too short to reach the top part of the window. The sun had spotlighted the door as though it was destiny calling. I didn't know where I was or how I got there which drove my nerves crazy. My mouth was covered with what seemed to be 100 layers of duct tape which left my mouth tingling with the unpleasant taste. Both my hands were tied together with rope very securely behind an old wooden chair, my blood in both my hands felt as though it was trapped which caused me to feel the sensation of fireworks in them.…

    The white classrooms and halls of school existed as my only relief place; it was the only place I could relax. At home, real stress weighed down on me. “You’re really in a hurry.” I glanced up from my assignment book to see my Algebra teacher, Mrs. Read, smiling at me. “I don’t have anywhere better to be.” I replied.

    If you took a step onto the snow your feet would disappear into the ground. The sky had elegant snowflakes gliding down that kept building on to the already abundant snow that lay there, although it was gray, and covered in clouds it didn't deter from the beautiful scenery. The trees marked each trial with the amazing scent of pine that would invade your nose. I never understood how snowboarding worked just that it took me from point to point fast. After many exhilarating runs down with my family, I decided that I should separate and go to the terrain park where all the jumps and rails were.…
