The Psycho Driver

The Psycho Driver

Here’s a story about how my friends and I had an encounter with a psycho driver!

My friends and I were walking to school together, like we usually do,in our walking pairs. There’s usually six of us walking but today 2 of my friends were ill so there were only 4 of us and we were walking in two’s. Me and one of my friends were in front while the other two were trailing behind us. We got to a road crossing which is quite close to the junction of the road, then we looked carefully to make sure no cars were coming.

Thinking that no cars were about to come, we start to make our way across the road when suddenly out of NOWHERE a silver sports car drives round the bend of the road and the driver quickly slams on the breaks! I hesitated to carry on crossing due to fact that we are at the middle of the road at this point and the drivers entrance really scared all of us. Did she not see we had already start crossing? Did this woman actually want to kill us? The driver, who we now know is female, gives us the meanest death stare in history especially towards the friend that was walking beside me. I still don’t understand why she looked pissed at us, why was she driving at 60mph in a 30mph zone? Was it our fault we had already started crossing the road? I raised my hand to signal ‘sorry’ to the driver but I honestly didn’t believe it was our fault.

We carried on walking, while discussing what just happened, and just before we got to the next road we had to cross a car blocked the path. Wait a minute. I recognise the woman in the car. At first I thought, for some reason, it was one of my friends aunts but as I look again…guess who it was. Yep, the psycho driver. At this point all of my friends are freaking out, Did this woman drive round again to confront us? Doesn’t this woman have some place to go,because that would explain why she was speeding down the road!

She rolled down her car window and shouted “Don’t you guys have something to f****** say to me!” I was stunned! This woman that nearly ran us over, and wants us to apologise! My friend that was walking beside me, boldly said “We have nothing to say, we were already in the middle of the f****** road, you could have ran us over!” Now, I was too scared to say anything and so were my two friends walking behind us, so we just let them carry on with their argument. At some point the psycho driver called my friend a ‘fat cow’ and I’m like wtf? this woman is at least 40 years old, doesn’t she have better things to do with her time than harass school girls?

Their argument consisted of mainly swearing at each other and when she began to drive off to whatever she was in a hurry to do and we’re now crossing the road, you wouldn’t imagine what happened next… My friend stuck her middle finger out towards her car and she noticed it in her side view mirror and we can see her break lights come on!

Oh No, oh crap….

She started reversing!! I told you, this woman is trying to kill us and so we started SPRINTING for our lives to school, because we are only about 3 minutes away. The two friends I had mentioned that were trailing behind us, had overtaken us running in a hurry to escape being rammed by her car. We are literally running so fast that  we had overtaken many students that were in front of us. I’m not going to lie, we were laughing at the same time because we couldn’t imagine anything like this ever happening to us! When we reached our school, we were so scared we were going to see the same psycho after school that we told our teacher and wrote a statement explaining what happened and there was going to be a teacher outside the gates of our school on the look out! We told a couple of people what happened, they were in shock just like we were and we also found a witness to what happened. Since that day we haven’t seen our heard from the psycho driver, phew!

I hope you enjoyed this story and comment if you’ve had any experience with a psycho driver!


Catching up with friends

Catching up with friends

It was quite hard to accept the fact that most of my friends weren’t going to carry on onto sixth form, in fact only one of my friends form my group was going to the same sixth form as me! Now, I wouldn’t I didn’t have any friends outside my group but being the shy and not-so-bold person I am, I knew I would find it harder to feel comfortable and join another group or at least become very close friends with other people in my year. Thankfully, it seemed that making friends with new students from other schools and making new friends was easier than I thought and I’m blessed to have the friends that I’ve made today.

Trying to stay in constant communication with my old friends has really been hard though the year due to sixth form keeping you extra busy and all the things we had accomplished in your own lives and sometimes I think it’s best to just move on and just let our friendship fade away. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve meet up various times throughout the year however I haven’t really been in contact with the person who was my CLOSEST friend in primary and secondary school since October 2015. Her and I have had our share of arguments but at the end of the day she never failed to make me laugh or put a smile on my face.

It wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago I sucked up the courage so send her a message saying ‘Hey’ and asked her and another one of my friends if they wanted to meet up and catch up on all the things we’ve done. She said she had been busy as well in college and having a boyfriend etc. But it was cool. We were talking to each other, which was all that mattered. It was so nice catching up online and making a date available for us to meet in person. I said I would check out movies on at the cinema for a particular date this week and get back to them soon but it wasn’t until this afternoon I replied to her back after looking at film times.

However, the thing I’ve realised is that… I have moved on. It doesn’t feel like were in secondary school again or like we’re going to meet up for the first, it just feels like…. I don’t know how to explain it but have you ever had that feeling that you need someone in your life to make you happy or you need things to feel like how they were before but at the end of the day you realise you’ve got everyone and everything you need in right now. That’s how I feel right now.

Hmm… I still can’t wait to meet up with them and find out what’s new and share the things I’ve done as well 😉

Comment if you’ve ever felt the same thing or been in a similar situation!

My First Personal Post…

My First Personal Post…

Starting a blog was something quite unexpected this week. Being the first week of Easter, in year 12 and having loads and loads of revision to do for AS exam blogging wasn’t on my priority list, however here I am.

This week has been pretty hectic so far for example I’ve been trying to cram in as much geography revision and notes as possible because I couldn’t really be bothered to do much geography revision this year as a whole, but I wouldn’t really say its my fault because AS geography has to be one of the most BORING subjects to take in year 12. Geography was my favourite subject throughout year 10 and 11 and you can’t imagine how happy I was to be carrying on the subject in year 12, however it seems like they’re just repeating the same sort or topics again. I especially went to WHSmith to buy a pack of 100 revision cards so I could make notes on all the topics we’ve done so far. After hours of note taking I’ve finished each module expect for one but the last one I believe I can do later of next week.

Like I said, this week has been pretty hectic, aside from the fact I started my period this morning, my mother had a car crash 2 days ago so know she has to buy a new car, but hopefully it’s better looking than the last car we had anyway and last longer;/
