The Most Memorable Day of my Life
The most memorable day of my life was, September 4, 1995 in Chicago, IL. It was 6:00 a.m. when my alarm clock woke me up. The first day of high school was finally here. I was excited, but a lot more nervous. I got out of bed, got ready, and then was on my way to the bus stop. All I could think of is the stories I heard about high school being so horrible with all the mean teachers, the hard tests, and of course being a freshman does not help either. The bus ride to the school was only 30 minutes, but it seemed a lot longer. When we finally got there, I was more nervous than ever. The day ahead of me was about to get a lot more…show more content…
Their names were Susan and Alicia. I called them over and I talked with Susan and Alicia. That is when I introduced myself, then they did the same and we began to know more about each other, Susan and Alicia asked me where I was from and I said, “I am from Puerto Rico.” Then I asked Susan and Alicia where they were from and Susan said, “She was from New York” and Alicia said, “She was from Indiana”. After that, we spent the rest of the day together until the class was over. I will always remember that day because I had a chance to meet new friends. In addition, I met the most important friends that I have ever had.
As the school year progressed, I made many more friends that are new and even joined a club. This club was just for members of the football team, the student staff, and the cheerleaders. My friends and I became members because we were the team equipment managers. The name of our club was the dog pound. We had t-shirts and worked all the school events when the football team was involved, such as the home coming game and pep rallies, we had fun all year long. My friends and I were even members of the food service program. We cooked and served meals for different events and for different people in the school all year long. We also had cooking competitions were we won different types of awards and sometimes we were offered scholarships to different cooking schools. My friend Asia and I also joined the JROTC class where we were
A MEMORABLE DAY IN MY LIFE
Several things happen in our daily life. Certain incidents are unforgettable whereas some are casual. One such incident which I always remember is the happening on wedesday, the 2nd December.it is the most memorable day in my life.
I am late going from my school. My home is in a small village of about fifty houses. It is situated in a hill side valley. We, the hill people are strong and rugged. We face hardships and work hard to live. I am brave enough to face any cruel animal. I know how to defend myself with bare hands if necessary. I am habituated to walk along long distances on hill tracks. I know how to swim and climb. Our village is close to Kerala- Karnataka border. Our police is friendly and amiable with us. They are good natured. When I come across the police I feel delighted and exchange pleasantaries with then.
It was a winter evening and the sun was setting. I thought would reach home by walking fast or even by running. Unfortunately, it soon becomes dark. Also the cold was eating the bones. I did not know what to do. I took courage and moved ahead. The cod air started blowing with hissing noise. I could listen to very faint voices carried by the wind. I could not see anything in that darkness but could make out patches of lurking shadows. At first I thought it was my imagination. Once more I heard the whispering sound. I stood where I was and did not go ahead. Now I distinctly heard some voices with a foreign accent and saw a group of shadows moving downwards. I realized they are brigands. I was told by the police friends to inform anything suspicious to the nearby station.
I immediately rushed to the police station and informed the police what I saw and heard. There a police officer congratulated me on my courage.
I took the officer along with his group of policemen by a different route. We all moved ahead and waited for the infiltrators to come in to the trap.

The next day my school head- master praised me at the morning assembly. Then I was rewarded with the scholarship granted by the I.G of police which I gratefully accepted. My parents and all the villagers felt happy for my courage and duty towards the nation. It w.as the most memorable day in my lif
