Introduction

A Journey The Importance of Hair Straighteners Whilst gazing outside through the office window, I wished I could be somewhere else. As if by magic an e-mail appeared in my inbox inviting me to join my friends on a mystery adventure. I jumped at the chance. It was an opportunity to get away from the office for one whole day and night and from the monotonous tasks that were set before me. My bags were packed and goodbyes to family and friends complete. However, to my great dismay, my rucksack weighed more than my own body weight. Clearly the hair straighteners did not classify as an "essential item". It took a long while to rearrange my backpack leaving me flustered wondering how I would ever cope without what I consider "essentials"! Before setting off my colleagues, Ray and Susan helped to plan our plan our journey; where to go, where to stay and who would take what. We decided to travel from where we lived in Parson Road and make our way to Somerset. It would be a total of ten kilometres there and another ten back. ...read more.

There we were, three desperate, bedraggled office workers shivering with cold and drenched to the skin. Our bags were laden with water spurting out from all sides. My hair was left frizzy and matted and how I was now in desperate need for my hair straighteners! Ray and I snuggled together for warmth and all of a sudden the unexpected happened. I had always thought of him as a kind man who had always been there for me but it was at that moment that I realised that there was something very special between us. We stared into each others eyes, our heads gradually moving closer together until our lips met. It was a very magical moment and changed the whole trip for me and had it not been for Ray, I would not have had the will to go on and would probably have turned back and given up. We were suffering from hunger and dehydration so we decided to attempt our lunch. All our possessions including our lunch were soggy after the swim. We enjoyed our mushy bread sodden with muddy water as if it were the best meal of our life. ...read more.

Conclusion

I learned a lot over that weekend not just about walking but also about relationships and the necessities of life. I was pleased to build my relationships on with my friends and enjoyed very much their company. Now I know that I would never be able to climb Mount Everest or walk anywhere further than to the next village. However, I know I am dependable in an emergency as is Ray. The once hated office seemed a luxury compared to the shattering and traumatic day we had. I realised that all the things I thought "essential" items have no longer any relevance in my life. Although I struggled to survive with my static and frizzy hair I soon released the "essentials" to life are in fact friends and people. After all, thanks to Ray I got through the day overcoming my need for hair straighteners and other necessities. I now know the importance of hair straighteners; they have no significance in my life, so much so that I am getting rid of them! People will have to accept my naturally frizzy hair. If they cannot accept my hair then they cannot accept me. I have learned to accept people for who they are as they will me. ?? ?? ?? ?? Charlotte Wigston Creative Writing Coursework ...read more.
