My Summer Reflections

Hey y'all! Summer is nearly gone and school is approaching, and this summer I have learned and done so much! Today I am sharing my reflections of Summer 2017, enjoy!

1. Lifeguarding isn't for everyone. This summer I got my first job as a lifeguard at my local water park. I have realized that it isn't for me however it introduced me to something I am very passionate about.
2. Creating a business. When I lifeguarded, I would be in a group of 4 lifeguards and teach little kids how to swim. When my mom's friends found out that I was a lifeguard, they asked if I could do private lessons for their kids. And while I was doing lessons with the other lifeguards, I realized that this is what I love to do! This summer, I did 9 lessons a week Monday-Friday then go to work. It was challenging, but next year is going to be promising! I am going to just do lessons next summer and hopefully get a lot more lessons in.
3. Scary movies. I have a tennis family, and one day when we showed up to the tennis courts, it started raining. So, we got in our cars and drove to my house since I live close by. One of the girls suggested The Conjuring so we watched it, and I LOVED it! Now, whenever it's raining, we go to my house and watch a scary movie! Last time we watched Annabelle, it was good too! 
4. Being grateful. This is my first summer driving on my own, and 3 of my co-workers got in a bad car accident. Each lifeguard was in a separate accident, but they all happened in the same week. After this all settled, I am now even more careful when I drive.
5. My future career. I went to a engineering camp for a week this summer and realized that I am in love with geology. I love earth, rocks, how it all forms, etc. So right now my number one career choice(although it's not completely official) is geological engineering.
6. Excited for my future. This summer I got a taste of what college life is life(when I went to the engineering camp) and found my possible future career. Things are going great!
7. Tennis. I have been playing lots of tennis this summer, and the results are showing! I'm climbing up the ladder and improving so much!

Thanks for reading!! 
Love,

My Driving Test

Hey y'all! Today I am sharing my rather hilarious driving test results, enjoy!

When we first arrive, I am literally shaking, I am so nervous! When the highway police men entered my car and we started my test, I drove to a deserted neighborhood and parked on a hill. So far so good! After driving around in the neighborhood, we drive back to where we started and I parallel parked. Actually I tried to parallel park...

Explanation:
Sooo you guys are probably wondering what the heck I was doing in the car! Well, I was going into the parking spot but I cut too sharp and didn't correct myself fast enough so I hit the curb. When I hit the curb I tried to correct myself again and ended up hitting the front cone. I put the car in reverse and backed up a foot or two. When the highway department officer told me to go back to the front of the building, I forgot I was still in reverse so when I pressed the gas we went backwards. I drove the car back to the fro…
