round 1

And so I sat on my bedroom floor, surrounded by a pile of clothes. The open suitcase lay empty in the middle of the scene. I picked up jacket after jacket, trying to decide which ones were necessary for the trip. Soon, I would be on the airplane flying over the mountains covered in snow. As time passed, my luggage eventually became full. Before I knew it, I was on the plane jumping up and down with anticipation. I sat outside on the porch. Every piece of furniture was covered in frost and the icicles hung from the overhang of the roof. The cold air bit my skin as it stung against the chilling breeze. It felt as if the cold froze the time. Literally. I gathered my ski equipment and headed down to the lodge. I couldn't wait to get on the lift. I loved skiing. It made me feel free. I sat on the lift and put on my ski goggles or as my little sister calls them, "safety goggles." She wasn't as advanced as me. In fact, while I was getting ready to take off on my own, she was with the self-absorbed ski instructor that I had once learned from. His ego was higher than I was on the lift right now. My whole family had come along on this trip. We were all skiers therefore, we were all excited to hit the slopes. All except my aunt who was pregnant with her second child. Her first was learning with my little sister how to ski. I looked down at them from the lift. I could see them from here. They were full of energy from the second we got off the plane. They wanted to get out in the snow as soon as possible. As if they needed any more sugar or energy, they had an entire container of pudding, breakfast of champions my dad calls it, and ran out the door before I had even woken up this morning. The view was beautiful. The mountains reached to the sky, the fresh sparkilng snow decorated my little sisters hair, and the trees were coated in a glistening, thick layer of frost. The only thing that ruined the view slightly was the construction of the new cabins to the right of where we were staying. I watched as one of the workers trudged through thte snow by himslef to the site.
