our first paper is a narrative on an event in your life that you believe shaped who you are. I chose to write about the day I joined drama club. As I started brainstorming and writing some pre essay stuff i was overcome with the most profound feeling of home, belonging, and several other positive feelings. It finally hit me how much i miss drama club and how much i miss my friends. I’m glad this wave of emotion finally decided to come crashing down on me, i was afraid it never would.
I also had another profound experience on the way to and from EN 111. “Baba O’Riley” by The Who came on during my shuffle and I can;t even explain what happened, it just seemed like the song was really speaking to me, like it understood me. Idk that probably sounds stupid as hell, but it still remains one of my favorite songs of all time.
“Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity. Why would you be realistic? What’s the point of being realistic? I’m going to do it. The second I decide it’s done it’s already done. We just have to wait for you to see.”—Will Smith (via quote-book) (via chefkate)
But I told death to suck my dick! jk. I did actually almost die today while cliff jumping at Canyon Falls. So I jumped off the tallest cliff there, which was about 40 ft tall (maybe taller) and tried to get to this other cliff I was on before that was like maybe 30 ft. i couldn’t get a good hold on the rocks i had to scale with a rope so i just said fuck it and floated down stream. Unfortunately, this girl didn’t look to see if the water was clear before she jumped off the high cliff. I looked up because I heard someone jump and all of the sudden i saw a body pencil diving toward me. Her body rubbed against mine as she entered the water. Had she jumped another 4 inches out, I would not be here.
It’s weird though because I don’t really feel like I almost died. Like after it happened, I wasn’t freaking out or anything. I’m not sure if this is a good or bad thing.
