I Survived a Car Crash

    Memorial Day 2009

    2 months ago yesterday I rolled my car on a

    dirt road. I took my eyes off the road for a second and lost control. My dad said by the looks of the car I must have been airborne for a little bit. It was so scary. I broke the windshield with my forehead (somehow I didn't get a concussion) and took out the rearview mirror...

    Those were 2 different bad days.

    Luckily besides knocking me silly nobody else was injured. Neither car survived tho. No alcohol involved.

    I was in a car crash in the spring this year,

    and although I totaled my car, I feel that it was a much needed wake up call for me.. it really taught me to be careful behind the wheel, and to never become too confident in your driving abilities or it can lead to stupid mistakes. I realized that one of my friends could have...
