Personal Narrative

I am writing about an event which happened in my life that I would
never forget.

It was when Christ Church School took us all to Chessington World of
Adventures for an end of Y9 trip.

I don't remember the exact date seeing as this was two years ago, but
I remember all the main events and important goings on.

It all started when I woke up for school, normal time, in my normal
routine, although I didn't pack any books or put on my school uniform.
I went straight into the bathroom, had a wash, brushed my teeth and
went back into my room to dress. We were obviously allowed to ware our
casual clothes, so I slipped on some trousers and a shirt and went
down stairs.

My mother had already started to make my breakfast, she was making
something which smelled like bacon. As I went into the kitchen I
noticed it was egg and bacon that my mum was cooking. I said good
morning and poured myself some water which I have every morning and
went to sit down on the sofa. A few minuets later my food was ready
and I sat down to eat it at the table. As I was eating I noticed it
was a very nice day outside, the sun was shining, it was dry, I just
hope this stays throughout the day. After I had finished my food, I
put the plate in the kitchen sink and washed my hands. The time was
7:45am, it was time for me to leave because we had to be at school my
quarter-past seeing at the coach had to leave by half-past. I put on
my coat and told my mum I was leaving, she said wait, so I came back
into the front room and she gave me some money to spend there. She
said have a nice time, I said I will, then left.

On my way to the school it was quiet and quite relaxing. I could heard
birds chirping in the trees and there was hardly anyone around, until,
I got to the main road and cars were zooming past back and forth. I
got to the bus stop and stood there waiting for a good five minuets.
Then the 134 arrived. I got on, showed my pass to the bus driver and
went to sit down. It was the usual journey I take to school, if I
looked out the window I'll see the same things I see everyday, same
signs, same buildings, even the same people who get on the bus. But I
just sat there quietly, and waited for the bus to arrive at my stop.
The bus went past Tesco near the North Circular, all the way up to the
Town Hall and turned left, it was just straight up now. We passed a
few more stops, then I pressed the bell where I was meant to get off.
The bus stops right in front of the school so I had to do was walk up
Hilton avenue.

then, I entered the school.

It was 8:10am so I was on-time which was good, but most people were
here already, I suspect they all came early because they were excited.
I went down to where Mr Barracloughs room was and found James and Kane
there talking.

I remember a...

772 words - 3 pages Personal Narrative- Homeless Man My friends often describe me as a cynic and a pessimist. For the most part, they're right.

Fortunately, even the harshest cynics are surprised sometimes. To begin, most people in my
