My Do Over at Life
It was a big state test, but I wasn’t anxious. I actually felt the opposite, as I was bored out of my mind. I thought that I would ace this test like I had done the others. I opened the test and the questions flew by one by one. Then it came, the question about diesel in cars. However, I had no idea what diesel was. I wanted to know more, so I opened a new page where I searched up the definition. Strangely, the page thought I wanted to buy or look at cars, so it took me to a page that was useless to me. I thought that there might be a definition on an image so I went to the image section. Instead, it took me to a page that was full of colorful cars instead of taking me to what I was looking for. A nearby friend saw the bright and colorful cars and tattled on me. I was taken outside where the teacher yelled at me for cheating when all I had done was look up a definition. I had only looked up the word so I could learn from my questions and do better the next time. I had not done anything wrong like cheating on “answers. com”. I had only searched the word, so I could learn, become intelligent, and please my teachers. But this backfired and severely displeased my teacher. Looking back and reflecting, I realized there was a time and a place for learning new things, and that was not the best time to look up a word. Even if I had only wanted to be the best student I could possibly be, if the teacher did not think that was not right, she was probably right. That is why I now know the order of time must be managed, so that there is not an incident that makes one regret their choice until the end of their days.
