While I was on my leave from deviantART and trying to get better, something interesting ended up happening that kinda changed my outlook on life to some extent. Yes, this story contains something not so great that happened to me. However, it's now a memory to laugh at, so don't worry! Now on to the story!
When I left dA, I was looking for something. Anything to make life fun again. My life at the time was so uneventful and boring that I often times just stayed in a slump and depression because of it. That's when I discovered my parents bought themselves bikes.
At first I had no interest in the bikes, but when my sister said she was riding one of the bikes to our grandmother's one day, I decided I wanted to ride with her that day. It's roughly a 10-15 minute ride to her house on bike. I was so out of shape that it probably took us 20 minutes, but I had so much fun. This was that thing I needed! It was the start of a new routine for me.
One the 5th day of riding bikes, however, something went wrong. As we started out our bike ride for the day, we started up the small hill right near our house. This leads to a steap-ish hill leading down to a tunnel we have to go through that's on the left. Well... I was getting a little too cocky at this point. That was partially my downfall.
As I was approaching the left turn to go through the tunnel going a little too fast, I ended up turning too late and swinging over too far. That's when I realized... I was going to wreck. There was no way to stop at that point. I was heading toward a somewhat deep ditch, and I knew I would be in that ditch.
I was so scared that I couldn't even scream. That's how frozen I was as I started going downwards. I literally thought I was going to die.
Fortunately for me, I didn't fall to far into the ditch. That didn't prevent what ended up being the reason I hurt. Well... let's just say this ditch was FULL of thorns. Yes, I just said thorns... O_O
So my sister, who was riding behind me, stopped and made sure I was okay. When she realized I was somewhat okay, she burst out laughing... -_- Yeahhhhhh, apparently me wrecking was SO hilarious. She helped me out of the ditch, which was tough because the thorns were making it hard for me to get out, and then fortunately had a napkin so I could wipe me BLEEDING leg. Yes, I had a fairly decent stream of blood coming out of one of my many cuts. Bad for me because I have a fear of blood! O_O
In the end, I still made it to my grandmother's house in mostly one piece. She, of course, was kinda upset over me wrecking, but I think she was just happy I was okay. My mom was probably even more upset because she had it in her head from the beginning that I was going to wreck, so of course she'd be bent outta shape when I did wreck.
Yes, I am okay! I do still have many of the cuts, some that are going to scar, but I'm just happy I didn't do more damage to myself! I may have been crying and shaking over the blood at the time, but my sister was right... It was hilarious! XD
