The first thing I would do is change into my bathing suit and run out to the beach. My sister and I would spend the day splashing in the salty water, until we were too tired to keep our heads above the water. Then we would lie on the soft damp sand and take a nap. It felt so good to have the bright sun blazing down on me. My favorite thing to do was build gigantic sand castles on the beach.
As locals describe it best, the “elegantly shabby” beachside town 40 minutes from Charleston has been my chosen vacation spot since childhood. Between the hammock shops, crabbing in the creeks and ghost stories, there is always something to entertain you on the island. With only the best memories there, never did I think that there would be something to hold me back from indulging in the lazy beach bum lifestyle. As I stood with my peachy pink toes in the gritty sand, I watched as the salty water rushed over my feet. The white waves covered my feet completely and I let them submerge deeper into the wet sand.
the water hit my feet. I smiled as I looked at all of the young surfers attempting to catch the two foot waves. I amused myself by pondering what their future would look like and if I was witnessing the start of a surfing legend. I envied their potential, the years they would have to master their art to acquire their dreams, whatever they may be. Thinking of surfing brought me to think about my brother who is a surfer.
When I was 5 years old, Dad woke me up one morning and informed me that he was finally going to teach me how to surf. I was ecstatic. I used to watch my brothers in envy as I crouched on the damp sand with my head between my hands resting on my knees, sulking at the fact that I wasn’t allowed to surf until I was 5. Well, that time arrived when Dad was taking me, and nothing was going to hold me back. I watched Dad approach me as he returned from a blue and white hire tent with a long (well what seemed long at the time), bright yellow foam board.

Alex walks up to his mother which is wearing a yellow hat and aske... ... middle of paper ... ...ellow shirt and trunks throws a stick in the sea for his dog to fetch this was a long shot as we see the pupil in the sea having fun. The dog runs in the water as well as Alex both very exited playing in the water. Alex gets onto his lilo which is yellow as well and starts to swim (medium shot). Brody continues to watch the sea nervous as it is his first date. He sees a black object coming closer to the kids in the water he gets tensed as well as the audience do but then the black object was a old mans swimming hat.
However, the scar deepened by seconds and the spaces to fill were rapidly widening. If I had to be hurt, I would just endure the pain even if I wanted to lean on someone; I kept it all to myself and believed in patience. The impact on which family separation have had on children has been a major problem throughout the world for centuries. Yet, parents fail to acknowledge the effect of how their own irresponsibility can sway their children’s educations, their future, and their body image as their children struggle to continue their life assuming they were abandoned. Papers are papers.
Then I told myself, without a doubt, NO. As a child, I got to see my parent’s behavior, their good and bad characteristics, how they treated my siblings and I, and the suffering of what my mother went through when my father left her. As they say, “history repeats itself” but to repeat the same mistakes, actions, and consequences they did, I honestly would not want that. Not just for me but for my future generation that is to come. So how exactly do I evolve from them?
He was quickly convinced that everything he said was wrong because of the utter disrespect from his teacher. This added to his lack of self confidence but, he makes a serious situation into a light hearted tone by using an hyperbole. Sedaris’ low self esteem began at an extremely young age. He has had a lisp his whole life and was forced to go to therapy. “At school where every teacher was a potential spy, I tried to avoid an S sound whenever possible….After a few weeks of what she called ‘endless pestering’ and what I called ‘repeated badgering,’ my mother bought me a pocket thesaurus which provided me with s free alternatives to just about everything.” (Sedaris 11) David Sedaris referred to his teachers as “agents” and “spies” to add a humorous side of something he disliked.
I did not want to be the one who messes up the plan and got everyone in trouble so I tried my hardest to act normally and kept lying to avoid the subject. My friend trusted me like her own sister and despite our many differences including our religion, we’ve always kept each other close. After weeks of lying to the people I was closest to, the last day came where we had to say something before we suddenly leave the country. It was Teacher Appreciation day and the entire school was out in the yard celebrating our all of our teachers. When the school Director and my father called all of us in a room, I knew that it was gonna be the biggest humiliation of my life.
