    So its the last day of the semester so im pretty happy kid. My exam today is super easy so life should be good today right? Wrong, might had been the scariest moment of my life. It all started with it being rainy and like 37 degrees this morning. My dad took my taco to do some work so i got stuck with his car (caddy cts). No complaints coming from me :D
    So im driving to school, which is like 3 miles away, and stop at a light. I turn left into a neighborhood to get to school and it all happend so quickly. His car is a tad' faster than mine and i wasnt ready. I touch the gas to turn left and as im near the end of the turn i start to spin out. I don't know if it was black ice or just hydroplaned or something. I do a 180 turning around into the grass. As I go towards the curb I'm like "O Fuck" becasue all i see is the curb which is stright like a wall. Then somehow i just slide up into the grass unhurt. Fortunatly the curb changed to a slant like 2 ft before i hit it and all was well. My dads caddy has no scratches on it except for some mud. It was so freaky bc that is the first time ive ever spun out and it was in the paps car. So thats my story, Drive safely in the rain.
