My First Snow Experience

My first experience with snow that I remember was about eleven years ago when I was seven. I remember my grandmother telling me with an exciting tone in her voice, "Were getting some snow!" At the time I didn’t really understand why she was so excited; I mean I had seen it on TV and it didn’t look that exciting to me. Well I went to my room and looked out the window just about the whole day. I waited and waited but never seen one flake of snow. I suppose you could say I was just a little disappointed.

That night before I headed to bed my grandmother told me to make sure I do my “snow dance,” before I went to bed. I asked her what that was and she told me that it was a dance that you make up yourself if you wanted it to snow, so I went ahead and made me a snow dance. I danced and danced for about 10 minutes until I got tired. Then I decided to pray on it before I finally went to bed. I remember waking up and hearing my grandmother talking to her sister on the phone about how beautiful the snow looked. I got so excited and jumped out of bed and looked out the window to see these beautiful white flakes falling from the sky and piling on the ground.

I ran in the kitchen and asked my grandmother if I could go outside and play in it and she shook her head yes but told me that I needed to put on a lot of layers, gloves, a coat, and a hat. I agreed and rushed to get dressed. It probably only took me about ten minutes to brush my teeth and get all of my clothes on, that’s how excited I was. I ran out the door and the first thing I did was dove right onto the ground and made a snow angel like I had seen on TV. The snow was so much more than what I had imagined. It was so white and shiny and it was as soft as cotton until you made a snow ball that felt like a tennis ball when you got hit with it.

That was by far one of my most favorite moments in my life. The excitement I had was indescribable and I think that’s one of the reasons why it will always

    My First Experience Riding a Pedicab Alone I think we all have that kind of experience where we used to ride a vehicle with friends or family but because of dire emergencies, we are forced to go by ourselves. My experience with this kind of event was a bit nerve-wrecking yet I also had the feeling of great success. This happened on my early freshmen year in High School. I did not really prefer riding “pedicabs” alone especially at night yet I was forced to. However, this experience taught me that…

    ENG 245 2/13/14 THE FIRST SNOW Think back to the first time you ever heard of the first snow. There are many factors which influenced the development of the first snow. Though the first snow is a favorite topic of discussion amongst people, leaders and folks, its influence on western cinema has not been given proper recognition. It is likely that that the first snow is thought about eight times every day by overall profit-making business, which are yet to grow accustomed to its common nature.…

    English Essay First Snow 10-11-2009 First Snow - By Davy Rothbart, 2000 The scariest things in the world are the ones we do not understand. Our imagination holds immense power over us, which can turn a serene and peaceful milieu into a frightening and terrifying situation. This is the reason why I, and many other children, was afraid of darkness during childhood. Not being able to see in the dark, allows the mind to wander, and suddenly all the ghost stories or horror movies, that seemed…

    My experience with English By: Victor Yakimov The first day of school is always a rush. There’s meeting new people, not knowing where to go, and saying hi to teachers who act nice at first, but will inevitably get fed up with your childish behavior and go crazy. Yes, first days are a mix of happiness and dread but the most hectic is the very first day ever. My own experience with the first was probably the worst. Being brought up in a Russian household the only language I knew…

Soon the plane took off and rose in the air higher and higher. The buzzing sound which had fascinated me continued. When I looked down, things looked…

    was around. I can easily relate to the essay because at my home English is a second language to my parents. Though it wasn’t as noticeable as Amy’s mother, but there were times where I heard my mother have a hard time speaking to people because she could not get her point across. There were times where I had to step in and just say “she means this, not that.” Growing up in a home where English is not the first language to me becomes your first Language because at the home everyone uses it to communicate…
