Autobiography - personal writing.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Autobiography My stomach was churning as I walked through the gargantuan gates of The Gateshead International Stadium. This event was to be the biggest competition of my life for athletics. This was the largest competition to me because everyone who had competed to a high standard all around England would be competing today ranging from professional athletes to young hopefuls. The competition meant a lot to me for my own personal goals and also to show other people how well I could perform, it was my time to shine. This put pressure on me, which I needed as it gave me a greater will and desire to win. I had previously been to the County Championships picking up first place which gave me immense amounts of confidence going into these Tartan games. As of yet nothing has compared to the magnitude of this competition. On the morning of the competition I felt incredibly energetic and all I wanted to do was get onto the track and perform my best but more preparation had to be done. I performed a series of warm-ups, first running around the track to get the oxygen levels in my blood elevated and then did a sequence of high intensity stretches. This was overwhelming; being in the middle of the stadium with hundreds of people watching your every move. I knew that they had expectations of what they were going to see. I felt nervous but most of all happy that I have achieved so much as an athlete and I have so much more to strive for and obtain as a performer. ...read more.

Middle

She is the same height as my Mam and he has long blonde flowing hair. I hardly ever know what color hair she has because she changes it every week it seems and I never see her due to her working and me at school. She also has a boyfriend called Nicky; she has been with him for 2 years, this is also why I never see her. I was four years old when I first started nursery. I can remember the first day well, I was extremely nervous for many reasons. One of which was because I wanted to make a good first impression for the teachers as they were going to have an effect on the way I learn for the next 7 years. I woke up that day excited and raring to get going. I had already set out my clothes and my bag so all I had to do was slip into them and off I went. For me the walk down to school was the best, seeing all those new faces made me even more eager to get in. I love making new friends, I like to see what other people do e.g. hobbies. It fascinates me how people can be so different and on the other hand be so alike. I walked into the classroom and we all sat down on the floor. My heart was beating faster than ever as the teacher briefed us on school in general and rules and regulations. ...read more.

Conclusion

I picked a GNVQ as I disliked French, Drama because I love the subject and I need to release some of my energy, Physical Education because I want to be a P.E. teacher and Resistant Materials because I can't do electronics. All the subjects listed above I am currently enjoying and learning a lot. After year nine I set myself a target, that was to achieve a C or above in all my subjects. I thought I could do this with a lot of work and some good hard grafting. As soon as I stepped into year ten I hit a brick wall with the magnitude of work and the difficulty of it. I struggled through and pulled myself to an even level with all my subjects. Finally I was into my year ten exams; the ones I have been anxiously waiting for the past year were finally upon me. This increased the pressure on me and I started disliking school, but after the whole ordeal was over I felt relived and happy that I had done my best. I achieved three B's, sadly two D's and the rest C's. Here I am now in year eleven waiting for my mock exams. I have been doing well in all my subjects and I feel confident that I can prove myself to be a good student. I am enjoying my athletics more than ever by training harder and striving to hit targets all the time. I am eagerly anticipating the summer when I can bounce once more into the pit where I hope to pick up a gold medal in the English schools Championships in Manchester. ...read more.
