Not A Turn, A Curve

Prompt: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.

It was definitely more of a curve that a turn, but I had the choice of going to two different high schools, OHS and CHS. My mom made me a deal that if I got straight As in 8th grade, I could go to CHS. Well, low and behold, I didn’t.

Now that I look back on it, there would’ve been so many things I wouldn’t have done, or been able to do if I went to that other school.

If I went to CHS, I wouldn’t have: been in FFA, been a starter on Varsity Water Polo, met my best friend, or dated Joshua. Some of the best things that have happened in my life wouldn’t have happened if I would done something as simple as go to another high school. I’m so glad that my mom made such an important decision for me and didn’t let me get my way.
