My Life as Oceana
I came up gasping for air to fill my lungs. I
wiped out while surfing and it was a bad beating
from the waves. It was head-over today and of course I skipped school that
day so I could go surfing. I was done surfing for the day. It was about 5 o'clock in the afternoon. My mom had sent a note to school saying that the
waves were going to be head over and I was unable to attend today. I was stoked that my mom wrote a note to the school. Who's mom really does that. I grabbed my towel hanging for the from the
lifeguard stand and headed towards my Land Rover. I opened the back slide my surfboard in the back
and strapped it down. My name is Oceana, I'm 16
and I live in Long Beach California. I am 5'3,
blonde and tan. I have a older brother who I call Wave but his real name is Waverly, he is two yearsolder than me. I wrapped the towel around my waistand got in my Land Rover. I put the key into the
ignition and then cranked it up. I opened my
sunroof and all of the windows. I searched for my sunglasses in my purse and headed home. I lived ina small house for a Long Beach residence but it was beachfront so I don't really care. It is a three bedroom house overlooking the beach. My dad
built a little shed in the backyard for all of oursurfboards. When I got home I put my surfboard up and then went inside.
Mother! You are positively the best parent in the world! I yelled.
Why thank you. I try. She said.
I went and hugged her and then gave her a kiss on the cheek.
How was surfing? She asked.
Amazing! Head over all day! I said.
Any barrells? She asked.
Not good ones, but of few. I said.
Okay, good. Go get cleaned up for supper. She told me.
Yes ma'am. I said. I
I went up to my bedroom and cleaned up some. I
played some music and opened my windows so a cool breaze could come through. I went and took a
shower and got out and pulled on my favorite
tanktop that was turquoise and it was flowy. I hadon bluejeans shorts. My mom called ke down to helpher set the table. In the summer we usually sat
outside overlooking the ocean. I was walking down the stairs when Wave came down.
Hey Wave, what up? I asked.
There is this party tonight on the beach, wanna
go? He asked.
Duh! Thanks. I told him.
No prob. I wonder why I didn't get a text. I said.Have you checked your phone? Wave asked.
That could explain why. I said.
I ran backtowards my room and my phone was lying on my bed buzzing. I picked it up and I had three missed calls and three texts. A call and a text
from Cody my boyfriend Brad and the two other textand calls were from my two best friends Summer
and Jane. I decided to call Brad back.
Hey Oceana. Brad said answering th phone
Hey. Sorry about kissig your calls and text. I
left my phone at home while I was-
Surfing again? He said finishing my sentence.
Yeah. Sorry. I said.
No problem. So did you hear about Cody's beach
party? He asked.
Yeah, Wave told me about it. I said.
Cool, do you want to go together tonight then? He asked.
I'd love to. I said.
Sweet. I'll pick you up around 8. He said.
Okay. That sounds good. I said
Alright bye. He said.
I hung up the phone and texted Summer and Kylie
back. They asked if I was going to the heach partyand I told them that I was going with brad. I had totally forgotten about helping mom set the table.
Sorry Mom. I heard my phone buzzing and then I hadthree texts and calls from Summer, Kylie and Brad.I had to text and call them back. Sorry. I said.
It's fine. She said.
Oceana you owe me. Wave said coming back in
through the door.
Nah, I set the table last night for ya. I said.
Dad walked in the door and it was time for supper.We sat around and talked for a little while until I looked at my watch and it said 7:30.
Oh gosh! I've got to go get ready! I said.
I jumped up and ran towards my room. I had to put on my makeup, fix my hair and find something to
wear. Once I had my hair and makeup finished I
started searching through my closet for something to wear.
What do you want goober? I asked.
Nothing, I was just laughing at you because you
are in a panic for something to wear. He said.
Well since you're making so much fun, why don't
you pick something out for me? I asked.
Fine but don't ever tell any of my friends.He saidFine! Don't let anyone know my brother picks my
clothes out for me. I said.
Deal. He said.
He walked into my closet and pulled my kackhi shorts out and my turquoise polo.
How do you just find somethig that fast? I asked.
I just look for whatever looks cute on ya. He said.
Gross. I said.
Yeah but Brad will thank me. He said.
Thanks. I said.
Right then I heard the doorbell.
Ahh! I screamed.
I grabbed my clothes off of my bed and ran towardsmy bathroom. I heard Wave laughing while leaving

might keep writing I don't know!!! It depends on
what y'all think!!!!! sorry if some things are messed up! my margins didn't work correctly!!!!
