Thanks in advance. Topic: Write a narrative essay about an interesting story from your life ( the scariest, most interesting, exciting, memorable) Someone might have said "Life has been tough for me because I have to face many disappointments in it." So do I, sometimes I thought that my life is indeed an ocean of endless problems and disappointments; however, there is one of the disappointments that I have encountered is also my most interesting story in my life. It was in the morning of May, I anxiously went to the DMV to take the driving test. After sitting more than thirty minutes, waiting and praying to the Lord for an easy driving test, an old short woman suddenly appeared and knocked at my car's window.

And it was full of my head that prevented me from hearing the instruction; the examiner wanted me to make a left turn into the middle lane. But I did not hear her clearly.
