A while ago, I posted a post about random and interesting stories. I had so much with that I decided I’d do another post!
MY FIRST MEMORY
Okay, this is a very weird memory…
When I was three, I was at a zoo. I wanted to take a picture in front of the giraffe, so I stood underneath it. Right when my parents were going to take the picture, the giraffe leaned over and stole the hat I was wearing!!
(My parents say that the zookeeper put giraffe food on my hat, but I don’t remember that 😉)
HOW I LEARNED TRACK WAS MY PASSION
A little secret… I’m a little scared of dogs.
Not cute little dogs. I’m more scared of bigger dogs, especially when they growl.
(I promise that track and my fear of big dogs actually has a connection)
Okay, so once I was on a run with my friend, and we were going through a dog park. There was this dog that walked by my friend, then came to me. Since I’m scared of dogs, I was a little nervous. However, dogs can sense when your nervous, and so the dog started growling. SO THIS SCARES ME EVEN MORE. And then ANOTHER growling dog came!!
And that’s when I did literally the dumbest thing anyone can do- I ran.
I know, you’re probably thinking SAPPHIRE! Dogs can probably outrun you, especially when you hate sprinting!
HOWEVER, the owner caught the dogs, and running fast felt really cool!
I did apologize to the owners, and everything was fine, and now I want to join my school’s track team!
One dark and dreary night, Sapphire was haunted by monsters- her homework…
One night, I had a lot of homework. However, I was feeling really lazy, so I decided I’d watch a movie.
However, I knew if I watched a new movie, I’d finish the whole thing, so I decided I’d watch a childhood favorite.
However, I decided to mix things up, I’d watch a Disney movie I’d never seen before.
I decided on Hercules (because that was probably the only Disney movie on Netflix I haven’t seen,) and told myself I’d only watch the first 15 minutes.
However, and hour and a half later, I finished Hercules and I hadn’t touched my homework at all!!
And that’s why I never start movies with the intent of not finishing them.
A FASHION CHALLENGE FEAT. RANDOM CLOTHES
Back when I was in 6th grade, we were FORCED to do chorus.
(Note: I CANNOT sing at all.)
However, there was this BIG concert that I was really looking forward to. All of the musical electives were performing, including the middle school chorus
I was painfully forced to join.
Then, I learned I couldn’t go. I was a bit upset, but not really. I stayed after school and waited for my mom to pick me up.
However, my dad showed up and told me I could be in the concert because his meeting was cancelled! I was so happy!
Then I remembered something- there’s a uniform for concerts. You have to wear all black and a pop of color, like a scarf. Since I didn’t think I was going to go, I didn’t bring a change of clothes
Luckily, I was wearing black leggings that day, but not a black top.
I frantically raced around the school, and I found a black sweater!! It looked small, so I assumed it was a 6th grader’s sweater. Since I was in 6th grade, I knew my fellow peers wouldn’t mind if I borrowed their sweater.
(Looking back, that wasn’t great logic xD)
I had this pink fluffy winter scarf I stuffed in my locker a long time ago (which I don’t think was what they meant by scarf,) so that’s what I wore for my uniform.
And that’s how I made my concert uniform at the last minute!
I hoped you like my stories!
