Surfing

The water is cool to the touch, a shiver runs through my body. I’m in the middle of a crystal clear ocean with a tint of blue, surrounded by green, lush mountains.

I sit on the hard, rough, white big board attached to me by the ankle. I hear the waves crashing all around me, creating a peaceful sound. I look over my right shoulder and see a giant wave, towering over my head, coming towards me. I whip my head back towards the shore, nervously. I close my eyes and take a deep breath.

Then I begin to paddle.

Spring Break

Usually every year my family and I go to Seaside, Florida for spring break. This year we weren’t planning on going for spring break because it is usually cold so we were just gonna go in the summer, but then my mom really wanted to go spring break too so we are going both!! I am so excited because Seaside is one of my favorite places!

I am going to Seaside with my friends Taylor and Julia and their family’s. We already have a ton of fun activities planned! One thing that we are doing is a bon fire on the beach one night! Another thing we may try to do is go parasailing! I’ve been before one time in South Padre but I never have in Seaside so I’m really excited. I can’t wait for all the fun activities we’re gonna do!

I can’t wait to get to Seaside on Sunday! I’m so glad that we get to go there for summer and spring break cause spring break wouldn’t be the same without going to Seaside!

Summertime is the Best

Light hair, dark skin, warm sun, cool water- these are all things that make summertime the best time.

I think I can speak for almost every teen that summer is everyone’s favorite, especially cause of the beaches. The cold water, warm sun, soft sand- everything that makes the beach one of my favorite places. Getting a tan makes it even better! I doubt that anyone could say they didn’t enjoy warm sun and cool water.

If there’s anything better than a tan it’s getting to sleep in. The freedom of getting to go to sleep whenever you want to cause you don’t have to get up early the next day is amazing. The feeling of waking up without an alarm clock screaming at you is even better. Waking up at 10:30am on a warm summers day is one of the best things in the world.

These are all the things that make summertime amazing. I can’t wait for dark skin and light hair!

Escape

I close my eyes.

I can feel the cool salt water hit my feet, but than rush back down, repeating the cycle over and over again. The more I stay still the further my feet sink into the sand. Further and further. The next wave comes making a relaxing, smooth sound. Cooling my body, giving me a chill that travels up my spine and gives me a shiver. The taste of the salty air. The feel of the light breeze, but also the sun slightly hitting my shoulders. I know I’m gonna get a tan. I decide to run into the cold, crisp, salty water to wash off all the sand on me. The cold water shocks me to life, making me shoot up from the water.

I open my eyes.

I see a giant thick packet, laying in front of me on a wooden desk. The packet has jumbled up equations and numbers, all over it. I’m back in Austin, taking my test.
