               I wake up to hear the birds chirping, the ocean's waves gently touching the sand, dog's constant barking. Oh well. Time to get up, I guess. As I step off my bed, Sammi, my dog jumps up and spins on her hind legs. It's her little way of telling me she was hungry. After eating breakfast I feed Sammi and take her on her morning walk. Since I live on the beach, I went over to the ocean and walked along it's waves. Sammi likes to jump in the water so I brought her towel in case she decides to *SPLASH* JUMP! Ugh now I'm soaked! Man! I was wearing my favorite top! Oh well. I'll just have to suck it up.

             On our way home, Sammi does a soft whimper, as if she was saying sorry. I bend down and rub her belly. Sammi absolutely LOVES it when I do that so she takes it as if she was forgiven. I get a text from Jordan, my best friend from elementary school. She says she found out what hall she got: red. That means I got the letter, too! Sammi and I race home in excitement to find the mailman putting the mail in the mailbox. As soon as he leaves, I dash over and grab my letter. I'm really hoping I got red hall. As I sit on my couch about to open the envelope, my mother comes over and sits next to me. Unable to take the suspense, I tear the envelope open. I got......... GREEN HALL!?!? REALLY??? I can't believe it! No! All my other friends also got red hall! Why did I have to get GREEN? Oh God.

              I lay on the couch, my head on my mother's lap. It's been a long time since I've laid on her lap. She comforts me and says maybe I do have friends in green hall, I just forgot about them. Hoping she was right, I close my eyes, falling asleep, taking a stress nap.
