Prom was arriving very soon. Although it was at an inoppertune time for me considering I will have soccer games all weekend I was still excited. I did find solace when my coach told me that prom day our game was in the morning. My dress hunt this year did not go very well it was ironic that the store I walked in had a musty smell and all the dresses inside were all old and out dated. I decided to have my mom make my dress this year. Before she started on it we premeditated exactly how she was going to make it. It was comprised of silk fabric and jewels. She had to sew it together carefully with deft fingers. I was impressed by the stately process she finished the dress with. When the dress was finally done I was so happy. It was like reaching the pinnacle of success for my mom when she finally finished it. The last thing I needed to do before prom was venal someone in my group into asking my best friend so we could be together.
It was one week untill spring break. In order to get ready my parents handed me a chore list. I was discrepant against the list because I was mad my brother didnt have to help. Next thing I know they changed it so my brother and I were both forced to assent to my parents chore list. We not only completed the list, but were praised for our chlvalrous act of cleaning the whole house. Next, my brother was begging to bring a friend along on our cruise. The friend he wanted to bring never really talked much because he was diffident. When he would join in a conversation we would all be impressed with his facile use of unusual words considering he rarely ever talked. It was finally the day we started our drive to florida. When we arrived and got out of the car the pungent smell of the ocean just got me even more excited. The moment was finally here, as soon as all the passengers embarked, the cruise ship was on its way. The best part was laying out and sleeping by the pool, it was a much needed period of repose. Also, the unfeigned personlaities of the crew members made the trip even more enjoyable. Untill, we were on a stop somewhere and my brother got bit by a virulent spider and got very sick.

For the past 4 years my family has been affliated with Holiday Valley Ski Resort. My brother and I really wanted to go ski and snowboard over the long weekend. In order to go we had to put up a cogent argument to convince them. First of we had to ascertain what the cost for the weekeend would be. My brother and I were getting excited, we have skiied for years and are always nonchalant about the big hills. My brother is omniscient with the knowledge of what hills are were. We also always have a high esteem when we go since we've been going for so long. Every we go we have to wear helmets so we are invulnerable to a head injury. Skiing for us is like a panacea, it always makes everything better and helps me forget about my problems. I feel supercilious when I go off a big jump and land it. My parents dont like when I go off the jumps but it is a venial action and they are only mad for a short period of time.

It was two weeks before the Championship for my soccer team. We had just lost a game, although it was a negligible loss that we needed to delete from our minds and move on. We had to get focused to play our biggest adversary in the championship. Leading up to the week of, you could often find us musing about winning and being Champs. We were going to have a week's sojourn in New York. Little did we know about the inclement, New York winter and that we would be playing on a full sized field indoor. Our coach seemed very upset when he got to New york. We didn't know it was because of the demise of our team manager. We had to exhilarate him with the fact that we got there early before him and have been training on our own, which he loved when we did that. Before the big game he wanted to give us one more helpful hint. He set a precedent for us to follow on how to harass the other players and get them unfocused.

I couldn't believe it, I woke up and there was a foot of snow. I was averse to getting up and attending school. The superintendent took a cursory glance outside and saw the roads were awful. He knew we would all be belligerent if he didn't close school he would have been putting all the students in jeopardy. The amicable person he is didn't want anyone to be mad so he closed school for the day. I was beyond happy, when i woke up there was a tepid glass of tea waiting for my on the kitchen counter. As I drank my tea I sat at the table scrutinizing my schedule for the day. The fact that it was a snow day gave me a whole new impetus to plan more winter activities. I walked outside meticulously because it was so icy. I grimaced as the cold hit me in the face. I ended up deciding I should just stay home for the day because my dad did not want me to drive although it was feasible.
