I’m okay. I love in northern minnesota in “the city on a hill” and i was going down hill and the car in front of me started sliding and i put my foot on the brakes, and then i discovered that my brakes weren’t working because i was also sliding. so i looked at my friend morgan and told her that we were going to hit that car. we hit it twice, spun all the way around twice and slid down the hill about 100 feet. i’m fine, my friend is fine, & the other driver was fine. her car is in bad condition but mine is fine. to make matters worse, another car slid into her car and pinned her body between her car door and her car so that was traumatic. i helped her out and she was okay. we then called the police.
then a pick up truck hauling a 20 foot trailer lost control and the trailer pinned the 2 cars between it and a retaining wall. we ran to get out of the way of the trailer - so by that point i just started crying because it was so rattled. i’m really thankful that my friend morgan was there because she kept me calm.
my car is pretty much fine so i could drive it home once we had finished exchanging info but my hands were shaking really badly and i kept telling my friend how scared i was to be driving home. it’s a terrible feeling to not know if your car will stop when you hit the brakes.
i got home and my roommate shawn saw that i had been crying and he hugged me till i was done crying. i’m also really thankful he was there for me. i’m feeling better but i have a raging headache from slamming into the other car & crying. i’m supposed to drive home tomorrow but i really am scared to drive.
wow sorry this was so giant, you probably weren’t hoping for a novel. but thank you for asking, it really means a lot to me!
just awful. terrifying. shaking.
when they had called me back, they spoke to me about applying for a spring internship - which in my cover letter i specified i was applying for a summer internship. called back today to schedule my phone interview and explained my situation - was put on hold about 5 times. then they asked if they could put my resume on file and call me back mid december regarding a summer internship to which i replied “absolutely”.
still feeling really good about this!
