As I began to brush my teeth my eyes caught a glimpse of the window that I now noticed was so close to the mirror. I could have died when I noticed that the rain was coming down like a storm. It was at that moment that I ran to mother’s room to tell her that I couldn’t go driving today. My whole body was tense, I knew this was a sign for me to stay home, I was scared and would never be able to drive in the horrible storm. I don’t know how, but she convinced me to just try, “It’s just a driving test,” is what she continued to repeat, “if you fail, your not ready.” I knew she wanted me to fail anyway.

She tried to stay focused.
Personal Narrative- Driving Test As I walked out of the courthouse and down the ramp, I looked at my mom in disappointment and embarrassment. Never wanting to return to that dreadful place, I slowly drug my feet back to the car. I wanted to curl up in a little ball and I didn't want anyone else to know what I had done. Gaining my composure, I finally got into the car. I didn't even want to hear what my mom had to say.
It could have been much worse. Can you imagine if I had to go to the hospital? Hanna however, told the insurance company that she was driving so the her premium wouldn’t rise.

She says to herself quietly, “Did that just happen?” Later that night still feeling uneasy, Janine, tries to think of how to tell her mother, Nancy of what just happened. All of a sudden she becomes distracted by water dripping in the next room. “Whoop, whoop, whoop” Just as fast as it happened memories of her childhood begin to crowd her thoughts. This did not play well with her because she was not a big fan of her own memories, because most of her memories was depressing.

Loud noises ripped her away from her semi-meditative state. Madeline opened her eyes and saw that she had arrived at Mystic Falls High School. She allowed herself enough time to get her bearings, having not been around as many people during the summer, and made her way across the parking lot. She saw her sister coming out of the car with Bonnie, pushing away the voice in her mind that told her to confront her sister about the missed ride to school. She sighed quietly and looked down, determined not to give anyone her attention.
