Last week was an absolute disaster for Paige. Losing Indie, not getting her wetsuit and having to look after Indie again after spending a whole day with her. Last week Indie decided that a computer could go in the dishwasher. Now let’s see what happens next.
Last night was a disaster. This morning was frantic. It was the day of Regionals. It started off really badly because mum had just found out about the whole computer issue. My computer has all of the applications for Regionals on it. Now we were going to have major issues.
“Oh Paige I accidentally mistook my computer for yours last night” said Toby
” So…. my computer isn’t trashed?”
” No? Well then, where’s mine?”
” Funny story.” I’ll tell you later, I have to go.”
At least one good thing happened during these last two days. I now needed to focus on the comp. My biggest threat was Lain Harley. She was the best in Sydney. I have to win if I want to go to nationals and be crowned best surfer in NSW.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Summer’s party. My mum did tell her mum that I couldn’t come but Summer was still going to kill me. If only she was here to see me shred the waves.
My family was coming down later. Dad takes me to surf comps since he is my temporary coach. Now that my computer isn’t trashed we will have no dramas. But I have lived with myself for so long their is bound to be a problem of some sort.
We signed in and headed to a shady part of the beach. My heat started in 10 minutes so I had to be nice and quick.
I hopped in my old salty wetsuit and grabbed my board. My board was covered in patterns that I drew on it. I don’t seem to have much time anymore since life gets in the way. My Mum says that a lot.
” You can do it champ,” says my dad.
” Just focus on the waves”, he said.
“Okay I’ll make you proud.” I replied.
” Focus, Focus,Focus.”
I hopped in line on the beach and patiently waited for my name to be called out. I waited and I waited and still no name.
Oh no I am waiting for the wrong heat to start. Just as that thought came into my mind, I saw my heat bolt into the water and start paddling. I hate my life !!!!!!!!!!
