Boring, fun, and frustrating

by YoungSoup

My winter break was boring, fun, and frustrating. It was boring because all I did was watch TV. It was fun because I spent the night at my cousin's house and went to a party. It was frustrating because my bike got stolen. Here are some more details about my break.

It was boring because I didn't have much to do. All I did when I got bored was watch TV laying down. Sometimes I got so bored I cleaned the house without anyone asking me to. When I was sick of watching TV and cleaning, I would just go to sleep. However, even though most of my break was boring, there was one part that wasn't.

Spending the night at my cousin's house was fun. First, we had a party for New Year's Eve. After everyone else went to sleep, my cousin and I stayed up all night watching TV. In the morning, we all ate breakfast together as a family- eggs, sausage, potatoes, and biscuits. I thought my break was improving, but I was wrong.

My break ended up being frustrating because my bike got stolen. I was at my cousin Greg's house. I left it under the stairs inside the gate because I didn't think anyone would take it, since he lives in an apartment. We went up to play video games, and when we came out, both our bikes were gone. My auntie was really mad, since she just bought it for me for Christmas. When I told her what happened, she said “That's a hundred dollars, wasted.” I realized I hadn't paid attention like I should have, and I had been irresponsible.

So overall, my break was boring, fun, and also frustrating. Not having anything to do at home made the break boring. Spending New Years Eve at my cousin's house was fun. Getting my new bike stolen because of my own actions was definitely very frustrating. To tell you the truth, though, I didn't really want to come back to school when break was over.

I enjoyed reading about your break. Too bad about your bike! The part which I thought was most interesting was that you got so bored you cleaned the house without anyone asking you to. That's amazing! Either you were _really_ bored or you find cleaning actually kind of fun. But I have NEVER been so bored that it made me want to clean my house. Too bad, because my house is really messy now. When I'm bored, I write comments on blog posts....

This is very cute! You learned a hard lesson, but you learned from it. You sound like a good-natured person.
