Essay topic-What is the greatest challenge you have faced and how did you react to it?
I really don’t like writing essays but I like writing, especially about past experiences. This summer I had easily the most challenging situation of my life. Normally I play golf about every day with my friends but not this summer. Last school year during the end of golf season I broke my right wrist and I got to spend my whole summer letting it heal. Now first off I was embarrassed to break my wrist falling while jumping over a “for sale” sign at one of my neighbor’s house’s. But it wasn’t bad enough because a month after that I broke my other hand, one bone in three places. Here are some of the things I did over the summer:
I got to tell approximately four million people that I broke my wrist jumping over a “for sale” sign and that I broke my other hand falling into a river. I got to tell that to literally every single person that saw me walking down the street. Oh and I walked monstrous distances because I couldn’t ride a bike. In New Jersey I would walk 101 streets each way so I could walk through the next town, and then back. One time I was walking and I had walked about 60 streets from where I was staying. Some little kids were having a lemonade stand so I thought I would buy some from them. When I reached for the lemonade this little girl screamed. She told her friends to come see “the kid with two casts” again. Apparently I was known throughout the Jersey shore and they had seen me before. I was no longer “Alex” but “the kid with 2 casts.” Later that summer I was talking to whom I had stayed with for that week in Jersey and she had had a conversation with a completely random person on the beach that knew me. “Oh yes the boy with two casts!” they said. I was a monstrosity.
The next most popular activity for me was the response I would get after people saw me. Normally I wouldn’t call a response an activity but some people just made it that. Three million out of four million jaws would drop and laugh at me while they looked at me like I belonged in a padded room. If you’ve ever had someone look at you like this you would know it. I’ll never forget the way some people looked at me. Oh and if you see someone that is in a condition similar to what I had don’t think whispering and pointing is discrete. I see you.
