Personal Narrative: My Trip To Galveston, Texas

Satisfactory Essays
There’s a lot of great things I saw on my trip to Galveston, Texas. My favorite place there was the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, while I was there I got on the roller coaster… that was very interesting. There was kids scared to even get on it because a lot of different people were saying things about it. It was “scary” or maybe “you’ll fall off of it”, I was frightened. From far far away you can see the ships when you were around the beach. They looked sketchy, but, whenever I looked at it from far away I thought it was something else. I was on the beach and I was so scared because one of my good friends shot me a text and said:“You realize you’re at a place where there is sharks and a kid died there because of it a few weeks ago”.

    start my 4 hour work shift, I began to go through the turnstile and seemingly startled awake a bat. This bat began to fly and squeal in fear. It darted at my head getting caught in my hair a couple times. I started to scream and flail my arms about trying to fend off the nocturnal flying mammal in fear. During what seemed to be forever I was able to unlock the turnstile and exit the entry way but not before rupturing two discs in my neck. This incident caused quite the turn of events in my life.…

    “What do you think?” I said to the man as he analyzed the car in my driveway. He was doing this for the past half an hour, asking every question there was to know about the car. I knew everything about the cars that I dealt with and I answered every question more confidently than the one before. This chat went on for another fifteen minutes and by this time I knew in my head, if he didn’t like the car, he would probably have already left. Finally, he said to me in an eager tone, “What’s your final…

    Six Months ago, on a hot humid day my friend Mike and I decided to go to the Texas State Fair. When we first arrived all I could smell was the great barbecue from the Grill. We then decided to walk around and find something to eat until we ran across a snack shack where I got some bacon cheese fries and he got a cheeseburger. The bacon cheese fries were so good they were crispy and cheesy with a hint of smoked bacon to top it off. Finally, I briefly overlooked onto each booth trying to decide which…

    home from visiting my family, it began to rain. It was just me and the boys and they had finally settled down from fighting sleep and I entered into a place of worship and dialogue with God. He began to take me back to the moment when I wanted to mend the broken pieces of my life and fill the voids with a relationship with my father so bad, that I came so close to meeting him but God blocked it. I began to reminisce back on the moment I visited Texas for the first time in my adult life (and probably…
