Winter Break Essay

Good Essays
winter break essay If you’re looking for an essay about a thrilling adventure where a young teenage girl finds her destiny and saves the world from a zombie apocalypse, then you’ve come to the wrong place. But if you’re searching for a slightly duller story about a teenager’s Christmas break, then you have arrived at your destination. I know it may not sound that appealing, but keep reading because you may be surprised. This essay describes what I did over winter break such as opening presents and baking cupcakes. T’was the night before Christmas and I was wide awake! I spent Christmas Eve at my dad’s apartment. We didn’t do anything too special except play MW3 and watch The Simpsons. We ate dinner, although I can’t remember what it was I mean really, it was two weeks ago! I helped my dad wrap a few presents for my brother and he wrapped a few of mine. Basically it was a pretty uneventful night but I still enjoyed it! My brother woke me up on Christmas morning. He practically had to drag me out of bed and it turned out I could have slept at least another twenty minutes because my dad made us wait for him to get up and make coffee. Finally my brother and I unwrapped our presents. I got a pink Aéropostale sweater, some One Direction books and magazines, the new Taylor Swift album on vinyl, TOMS that are too big for my feet and a bunch of candy I can’t eat because of my braces. Then we drove to my mom’s house to celebrate Christmas there. When we arrived at my mom’s house, I was excited to open my presents but my mom said I had to play with my youngest brother first. When I opened my gifts I was very impressed. I got some One Direction notebooks, my favourite movie called Pitch Perfect, a TNA hoodie and….. (drum roll please) Taylor Swift concert tickets!!!!! There wasn’t much time before we left for Christmas dinner at my Uncle Will’s house. Every year all of my family gets together for Christmas dinner. We alternate who is the host for each year and this year it was supposed to be at our house but my Uncle Will had never hosted before so we let him have it this time. The dinner was phenomenal although I didn’t get as much money as I had anticipated. I had so much fun seeing all of my family even if they are kind of loud. Normally people go to awesome parties on New Year’s Eve but not me. I got to stay home with my mom, my two brothers and my brother’s friend and watch Grown Ups and play Sorry™. Although I did make some delicious cupcakes with chocolate and vanilla icing topped off with multicoloured sprinkles. We stayed up till midnight to ring in the New Year. My mom tried to get us to go outside with her and bang pots and pans because apparently “everybody does it.” On New Year’s my family never really does anything special just because it’s nice to spend time with your family. All in all, my winter break wasn’t that exciting but I loved being able to sleep till noon. I can’t wait to blow all my cash on shoes and clothes at the mall. I’m trying to save up my money at least until February twenty-second which is my birthday because then I’ll have more money to spend. Except I probably couldn’t do that though because then I would go through shopping withdrawal and have to go through therapy. Going to the mall without money is a method a torture to a teenage girl. There is a ton of different tops, jeans and shoes I want to buy for the springtime. Anyways, that was my winter break! Sedona Kelly

    cool thing to get away from the house. I would just lie there and pet on the dog’s soft furrier coat. Once that was over back to the home front it was good to see my little brother. I gave him a hug and a rub on his curly soft hair. While on break the sight of the snow was amazing. Just watching it comes down and hitting the ground was a pretty sight. Then to watch some of the kids out playing making snowmen was a great sight also. What wasn’t a great sight was seeing the news and watching…

    You would think living in the Pacific Northwest, having to succumb to a harsh cold winter snow would be a norm. Well it's not, and unfortunately snow is something of a blessing and more often than not, typically short lived when it does appear.

    Winter Break Goals As winter break slowly comes closer, I have some things to look forward to. 92% of people don’t achieve their winter goals, but 8% of people do.

But this winter break I will try my best to look forward to seeing my family, sleeping in, and getting in shape for wrestling season. This Christmas, I plan to sleep in.

    in 11 years. I had finally saved up enough money to go to Hawaii this Winter. The shuttle had arrived and we loaded our bags onto the van. I looked back at my apartment building, trying to remember if I forgot anything. Nothing came to mind. “When was the last time you rode on a plane?” I asked. “Sometime last year,” she answered, “how ‘bout you?” “It was awhile ago, I can barely remember it.” *** It was during our Winter Break, and my parents were taking us to Europe and it would be the first time…

Remember the name of the people you are with, is a sign of respect in our society. Even if you don’t remember the name most of the time, we try an easy way out in order the name of the person involved in the conversation. For this project I will ask them to repeat their name so before to speak with a person in the family I will ask him/her to…
