Personal Narrative: A Peak Moment In My Life

Satisfactory Essays
A peak moment in my life is the poetry slam the creative writing class held last year in the Little Theatre. I’ve never been confident in my writing or art and always talked down on myself about how I will never be good enough. Even with my lack of confidence Ewing convinced me to get on stage and read something. I was terrified of reading my writing in front of a sea of faces every hour, but it really wasn’t that bad. I grew more confident with my writing every time I read and I made it to the finals in the competition when I never thought I’d make it past the first round. That whole experience really help shaped me to becoming a strong, confident person.

    talking about moments. Those split seconds of your life where you feel like nothing can touch you, like nothing can go wrong. But no one ever talks about what happens after those moments. When you come hurdling full speed back down to earth, and find yourself one again in reality, looking dazedly around and trying to figure how for that one moment everything could have been perfect, and how it could change so suddenly. I've had plenty of moments. And they were everything a moment is supposed to…

In 7th grade we had a system where if you were late to a class twice you would get lunch detention. My locker was always farther away from my social studies class so it wasn’t too odd for me to be late so I ended getting lunch detention. The way it was set up was the lunch detention tables were isolated from the rest. It was my first any kind of detention so I wasn’t exactly sure what to…

This memory had an effect on me that I would never forget, though, I would experience it again as I toured other countries that our military occupied or had a military state. I joined…
