Hey, That's Life

Olivia Cooper is a very organized girl. She has her whole life planned out from start to finish. But what happens when things start to not go her way. When life decides to take the wheel and put Olivia in the passenger seat. It all starts when the college she wants may not be the College she gets. This changes her life that she has planned forever. But maybe life is trying to tell her something. If you spend so much time looking into the future, you'll be blinded by the present.


4. chapter 4

"Are you ready, Honey' My mother says as she puts the last bag into the car.

I already went shopping for clothes without Sierra.

Oh well, her loss.

"Yeah, let me just say one last goodbye"

I walk into the house that I grew up in. Everything came back to me. All the memories I have had, all the pains, all the laughs, everything. I am about to leave the one place I call home. I walk into the family room. I immediatly remember playing uno with my sister on our hardwood floor when I was nine. Next the dining room. All the meals I have ate on this table are countless. The kitchen. My least favoite place because of the struggles I have had with food. I go upstairs into my room. My room has been my savior. I have been in here when I am sad, angry, lonely, happy, excited, and especially frustrated. I can't beleive his will no longer be my room. Well it will, but not really. The memeries of going to bed late and waking up tired, the sleepovers with Sierra, trying on clothes after clothes trying to find the perfect outfit. It ws so great being the owner of this room.

"Goodbye, I'll miss you" I wisper to my house as I'm walking out of the door.

Some tears started to form but were shaken away.

"Ok, honey, we you have to go now"

I get inside my car and start the engine.

My sister is already asleep in the back seat.

My mom gets in the passenger seat and signals me that she is ready.

I start the drive to the rest of my life.


"We are here!" My mom taps me to wake up. We switched off every three hours.

"Woah, this place is awesome!" My sister, lily says.

We all get out of the car and look around.

This really is an amazing place.

We all grab three bags and head to my dorm.

I walk down the long hall of all the rooms and finally come to mine.

Dorm 357.

I open the door and find a really pretty blonde girl sitting on her bed.

"You must be Olivia!" She shouts and jumps up from her bed to greet me.

"Yes I am! And you must be Juliet!"

"That would be me. Come on in and set your bags down! And who's this?" She asks looking at Lily.

"Thats my sister, Lily"

"Its nice to meet you lily!" She smiles and puts out her hand to shake Lily's.

"You two" Lily smiles as well.

"And i'm her mother" My mom intervenes.

"Nice to meet you as well"

'' You too. Now we have to go. Do you promise to keep my baby safe?"

"Of course!"

"Ok, bye honey!" She kisses me then takes Lily and her away.

"Do you want me to show you around?"

"sure! Thanks"

" Ok follow me."

I follow her outside and take in the scenery.

Its really pretty here.

I can't beleive I actually complained about having to stay in america.

This is really a great experience and I wouldn't change anything.

Not even getting not getting accepted to University of Manchester.
