    Letter of Recommendation—Roller Coaster Roller Coaster was my biggest nightmare when I was young. Unlike other kids, I begged for not going to those amusement parks and my parents were surprised. I was afraid of sitting in an accelerating car at that time, so roller coaster wasn’t even an acceptable concept for me. I couldn’t imagine myself getting tortured by that flying machine, and I couldn’t understand why so many people waited in a queue measured in hours for it. My mother used to incite me to “be like a normal kid” by suggesting how enjoyable and somehow relaxing the experience is up there. Yeah, it must be really enjoyable that I could hear people screaming before entering the park! So what is a roller coaster? I personally have different ideas in different times. At first I got frightened by the…

    Drop is a term we, cousins use to describe the motion of the roller coaster, when it goes very high up and comes rushing down the track in a nineties degree angle. That was the day I discovered my deep hidden fear of heights. The rushing down wasn’t the scariest part though, scariest part was slowly going up the track and looking down as if the track just cracked and I am falling towards it with a face down legs up stance. Anyways after the ride, we went and drank some cold sodas and had a nice…

    As I looked out of the bus window, half awake from sleeping on the bus ride, I saw a large blue structure with flashing lights at the top jutting into the partly cloudy spring sky. To the right of it was another one, similar looking, but was yellow and red and was somehow even taller than the blue one. I then nervously looked down the aisle out the windshield at the three lane road, each lined with cars and other buses, that was headed toward the island-like peninsula. As we lurched slowly down…

    As the metal gates swung open, I jumped back with fear, bumping my mom. "Sorry mom, I'm really scared." I said, with my voice shaking. I looked down at my trembling hands as I climbed into the seat on my right. I pulled the padded bar over my head. I took a deep breath. "I'm so nervous!" The roller coaster started moving. Crack, crack, crack, slowly went the roller coaster. My hands started to tremble again. I focused on the crack, crack, crack to get my trembling hands off my mind. A slow turn…
