When I was about 17 years old my friends and I would go to this place we call “The Clift’s”. It had the best and chilliest people I have ever met. Everyone had the best vibes. It was the most peaceful place I’ve ever been. We used to do rebellious things behind the curtain of trees. The best part: The warm beautiful lake that I got to dive into for hours. The Clift’s has always been a place where I felt free.
When we would go to the Clift’s my friends and I would all go pile in the hot car and drive around and eventually would come to the conclusion that we should just go to the ...view middle of the document...

I could smoke as I pleased. Most people just smoked cigarettes and marijuana, some did other drugs but that’s all I really wanted to do. Drinking was always fun, too. It gave me a sense of adventure and made me feel as I could party forever. Drinking and smoking gave me the ability to be hyper and dance, and made me feel like I could do whatever I wanted.
Now, the best part: diving into the water. First I would prepare. Looking down I would decide how far to jump. Then I would look up at the sky and then look half way at the beautiful horizon, and then before I knew it I would have jumped. As the water splashed around me, I dived deep and stayed under water for a few seconds, but it felt like forever. The hot summer made the water feel so good. I quickly bobbed back up and climbed the rocks just to do it all over again. Some people cannon balled, or they would dive head first. Some experienced people did awesome back flips, but I just always went in feet first.
The Clift’s have always been the best experience to my friends and me. I will never forget all the fun times I had, from all the people I have met, and never seen again to the adrenaline rush I get from jumping into the Percy Priest Lake. It will always be a place that I will have good memories that will last forever, and have great stories to tell everyone. Though don’t go anymore because it’s cold. It will always be my special place. And yes I am sober now.
