A Day to Remember - I Can Still Remember It Like It Was Yesterday

Better Essays
I can still remember it like it was yesterday. It all started at about 2 p.m. It was the time I went back from school on foot. I was so tried and all I wanted was to just relax and eat. When I arrived at the front gate, I was shocked.The gate and the door were opened. It was because at that time there was nobody in my house as all my family members were not at home I was frightened and did not know what I should do. Should I go inside or call the police? I was hesitant because my family went out for work and they would normally tell me if they took afternoon off. However, I decided to see what was happening. I picked up a hard stick so that if something happened, I could protect myself. Then, I walked slowly to my house. I took a deep breath yet, the feeling of dread weighted heavily on me. I clenched the wooden stick on my hands, mind alert and be ready. I walked slowly into my house with my wooden stick in hands. Suddenly, I had nagging feeling that I was being followed. My senses were very alert and I could hear footsteps behind me but when I turned to glance behind I could see no one. I did not take too much notice on it actually. I thought that it might be my illusion because I was too nervous in such an unexpected situation. I grasped my wooden stick again, be prepared. I pushed the slightly-opened door, looked around if there were something going wrong. My heart started to beat quickly. Darkness always terrified me as the curtains blocked out the sun. I looked for the switch and turned on the light. I glanced around again to do a second check. There was nothing wrong! Everything was arranged properly and it just seemed like nothing happened. "What's happening and why is the door open but there seems to be no one inside? " i said to myself and all this while my head was filled with images of unrealistic thing from novels and movies. I crept around on tiptoes in order to find out what on earth was going on. As I was getting nearer to the staircase, I

    I still remember the day, December 6, 1999. My Best friend had called me crying, asking for my help. I expected the worst, but it wasn’t so bad. She asked if I could go with her to the doctor because she thought she was pregnant. My thoughts immediately went to the baby because my friend had been drinking and doing drugs for the past two months. The next day, I told my mom I was walking to the bus stop, but really I was going to skip school so I could accompany my friend to the doctor. That day…

    I remember this day like it happened yesterday. I was a sophomore in high school and Thanksgiving had just past. I had fallen asleep watching a movie in the living room we had in the basement. It was about eight o’clock and I was woken up by a loud thump. Thinking someone had dropped something, I went back to sleep. It was when I heard my dad running above when I knew something was wrong. I ran up the stairs and watched as he ran into my Grandpa’s room which was right off the living room. He then…

    much to remember. But each one of us has a memory that stays firmly in our heart. Now, I want to tell about a moment that I always remember until today. I can still remember the day it like it was yesterday. The morning sun shone brightly on my eyelids. I rolled on to the right side of my bed. Wondering about the time, I stretched my arm to grasp a round alarm clock that used to woke me up every morning. I forced my eyes to wide open, focused them on the ugly round clock’s numbers and I knew I was late…

    I Remember “Mom did you just see that, a plane just fell from the sky.” While I sat on the floor I couldn’t believe what I had just said. A plane fell from the sky. I had just turned six a few hours ago. Any child who was basically five years old would never be able to grasp the concept of why a plane would crash into a building. Not only would they not be able to understand one plane falling, but three in just one day. I could only look to my parents for answers. I remember my birthday…

    I remember when I first went to go take an interview for a job. To start, it was my first time and I was very nervous. I would stutter my words when I talked. My hands were getting really sweaty. Most importantly, I couldn’t make eye contact with the person that was interviewing me. Instead, I let my eyes wander all over the place. Another reason that my first interview was so memorable is because besides doing a bad job in the interview, I got the job. At the end of my interview, I was given a schedule…

    still remember her. I still remember. High school is a time of pain and glory, of smart elites and expelled burnouts, of brown nosers and lazy group members. It can be easy, or it can be terribly hard, but mostly it’s just there. Like a constant buzzing in the back of your mind, never fully recognized or dismissed. It is impossible for adults to fully remember what they experienced in high school. It’s hard enough for teenagers to remember what happened the year before last. This fact, and this fact…
