Surviving a plane crash

After four years of college, you are celebrating with your first real vacation. You have planned three glorious weeks away from the hustle and bustle of city life before you begin to practice your dream career. Climbing aboard the small Learjet, you can’t help but wonder if the other five passengers have also planned vacations like the photographer’s vacation you designed. As the plane lifts into clouds, you drift off, dreaming of the week you have planned hiking in the Rockies followed by the two weeks in Hawaii shooting pictures of volcanoes. Coughing wakes you to a smoke-filled cabin and you realize that the loud noise you thought was a dream is really the pilot screaming. The trees seem to leap at the window, and you remember nothing after that. When you finally come to, the plane has crashed. You have only moments to grab three items and throw yourself out the broken window before the plane explodes. Two weeks later, the rescue team finally finds you. Of course, your old English teacher is leading the expedition. You almost wish that you hadn’t been found because, as you know, the first words out of her mouth are: “Write me an essay on how you survived two weeks in the Rockies with only those three items you were able to save from the plane!” Narrative essay
