I woke up this morning and knew it was going to be a good day. I got dressed in my favorite outfit. I brushed my teeth. I brushed my hair. Then I went downstairs and ate my breakfast. Then I went outside and waited for the bus. I rode the bus to school. When I got to school, something was different.
Beep! Beep! Beep! My alarm clock woke me out of a sound sleep. I had been having a wonderful dream about being the best singer on American Idol. Yawning and stretching, I crawled out of bed. My closet door seemed miles away, but I knew I had to get dressed. As I set out on my journey across the vast room, I carefully avoided tripping over my stuffed animals that lay strewn across the floor. I passed a mountain of clean clothes, yet to be folded and prayed out loud that I would have something to wear.
I turned the knob on my walk-in closet’s door and smiled from ear to ear when I saw my favorite outfit staring back at me. It seemed to say, “I’m here, wear me!”
I slipped on my black pants and buttoned up my floral print shirt. Doing a little twirl , I glanced in the mirror. Black leather boots would perfect the outfit.
Into the bathroom, I sauntered, I knew I looked good! My brush was lying beside the sink. I brushed my long brown hair, making sure every strand was perfectly in place. A quick brush of the teeth, and I was ready to go.
Skipping down the stairs, I sang my favorite song, “Girl’s Just Want to Have Fun.” I stopped singing when my eyes noticed that our kitchen table had a feast on it. Scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, fluffy buttermilk pancakes, and carafes of orange juice decorated the table. My eyes must have bulged out of my head as I raced to my chair.
After I had eaten my fill, I slowly walked to the door to go outside and wait for my bus. The chill of the wind slapped me in the face as I opened the door. Good thing I had thought to wear my leather jacket this morning. I waited for what seemed like hours before I saw the large yellow bus rolling towards my bus stop. Climbing onto the bus, the stench of old bus hit me. Yuck, this has got to be the worst part of the day.
Finally I saw our red brick school building. I raced off the bus to my waiting friends and together we waltzed into the school. Immediately we realized that something was different. Several of the lockers were decorated with bows, posters, and pictures. I turned to my friend and shouted, “I forgot it was Homecoming week!” Excitement filled me as I thought of the fun we had coming in the week ahead!
I went to the beach one day in the summer. I walked on the sand. There were a lot of people there. I saw waves in the water. I was so happy to be there.
The first thing I did was go into the water. I liked the water. It was fun to splash in the water. I swam for a while. Then I got out of the water.
Next, I decided to build a sand castle. It was nice. It was hot when I built the sandcastle. The sand was all over me. I had to go back in the water. I washed off the sand. I got out of the water.
It was time to go home. I knocked down my sand castle. I got my things and left. I was sad to leave. I hope I get to go back someday. That was a great day.
One hot, steamy August afternoon in 2005, I traveled with my family to Galveston Beach. We arrived at the beach early in the afternoon, when the sun was blazing down making the sand so hot it burned my feet. I was surprised to see so many people at the beach. There...
