Personal Narrative On Thanksgiving

Decent Essays
Swoosh!I opened the door to my house. As I walked in my house the smell of turkey drifted through the air, I realized that it was Thanksgiving. Something had happened the year before that made me hate Thanksgiving, like Wrecking ball by Miley. It involved turkey, hunting, and my friend Bobby.

It was terrifying like skydiving without a parachute it's fun going down until you realize that you don’t have the parachute, but at the end it was pretty fun. Ok so it all started when I got out of bed like a normal day. What was soon to happen, nobody knew. Before this I always liked Thanksgiving, but what was about to happen made me not really like this holiday very much. I was going hunting with Bobby and I found one turkey and shot...I missed.

After that I got this strange feeling that the turkey was alive before I shot it twice before leaving. I thought it was just me. I was starting to feel a little weird so I asked Bobby if he could carry the turkey. I got to my house at the sun was setting it was as pretty as the girl who lives next door…. Anyway I started plucking it with Bobby,but the first feather we got it went all loco around my house. It even got in …show more content…

    I love the casserole so much that I help my mother make three large containers every year. At first, I never liked the idea of a recipe that calls for green beans and cream of mushroom soup. However, after I tried it for the first time I immediately loved it, and proceeded to serve myself a second plate. The taste is surprisingly heavenly and full of creamy flavor. I loved it so much that one year I asked for it to be made for my birthday.…

    Reflective Piece: Two discussion thread that I chose for the final portfolio is “Food Rituals” and “Unjust laws”. These two discussion threads matter a lot to me, I loved cooking and I was homesick for a day or two after writing the discussion thread on food rituals. Every time, I cook food on many occasions here in the United States reminds me of my family back in Nepal. This is the third year that I am away from my parents and I can’t wait next December to eat my mom food. I really liked a letter of Martin Luther King Jr. to Clergymen where he spoke about the unjust laws.…

    I began taking vitamins during my final year of high school. It brought back some energy I hadn’t realized I was missing, and also comforted me in that fact that this way I could be more certain I was getting anything that was missing from my diet. Even though they were supportive, it can be complicated to be surrounded by friends who aren’t vegetarians. Whenever we went out to eat, I was always extremely limited in my food choices, and would often pick meat out of a dish and hand it off to one of them, which always made them happy. My best friend unconsciously began eating less meat and it got to a point where she was referring to herself as an “accidental vegetarian.” And on one instance, I was fed meat at a friend’s house because even though he was certain there wasn’t meat in the dish, he hadn’t looked at the ingredients.…

    It was very windy and pretty cold. I wasn’t having very much fun and actually started to regret the whole hunting thing. I knew I couldn’t give up that soon so I decided to sit it out until we had to go in to get some food in our bellies. We were hearing shots around us all morning. I thought for sure we would see a deer within no time, but we still hadn’t seen a…
