Write about your strongest memory of heart-pounding belly-twisting nervousness: what caused the adrenaline? Was it justified? How did you respond?
So just this summer, me, my boyfriend and some of my best friends decided to take a day and go hang out and have some fun at Elitch Gardens in our capital city. We hadn’t seen each other for a period of time since high school so it was good to see each other again. I was very excited and also nervous to go because I am very afraid of heights but I also had never been on a roller coaster or any other type of crazy ride before. I was hoping to work up the courage to be able to go on at least one and I told myself if I freaked out and hated it that I wouldn’t go on another but at least I had tried at least one. So we arrived and looked around a bit and then everyone started to get excited and they wanted to start riding all of the crazy roller coasters and rides. I decided to sit out on the first few but then they convinced me that it wasn’t that bad and that I would love it. So what did I do? Well they are my good friends and they are fairly good at pressuring me into doing things. So I went.The very first one I went on was the Boomerang. I was so nervous to get on and once I did, before it started, I couldn’t stop laughing hysterically because of how scared and excited I was. Then it started. I was laughing the whole ride and my adrenaline shot up so fast. After the ride all I wanted to do was go on it again and to try every single other crazy adrenaline racing ride there was in the theme park. After going on that one, I knew I would love the adrenaline rush for the rest of my life and that I would love going on the wild rides that I never could get myself on before.
