A life in the day of...........

Extracts from this document...


Lealands High School English GCSE Personal Writing - Non fiction A life in the day of........... 7.30am and there's a thunderous scream coming from my mum's room. It usually gets me up, but if I'm too drained to bother getting up I just curl up into a little ball and wait for my mum to haul me out of bed. After that, it's a quick five minutes in the bathroom and a shout to my brother to get up. By now my dad will be sitting at his office in London - doing as he normally does - working hard. I don't know how he manages to do it but he's out of the house everyday at 5.30am. Even at weekends he wakes up this early and is making use of his time in the garden. Whatever it is, my dad always likes to be early, something that I never seemed to pick up from him. By now it's 8.30am and everyone (apart from my sister) is dashing about. I think if you're the youngest you don't feel you have to take responsibilities, and, being the eldest, I think I end up with the more then anyone. ...read more.


By now it's lunchtime and, at last, a whole hour to catch up with what's happened and get some food! I get about �10 a week for dinner, but this usually lasts longer as I won't feel like eating if it's sunny outside or there's a big crowd in the cafeteria (I hate to feel claustrophobic). I usually handle my money well, but like to spend my dad's money on clothes and such (just as any girl would!). Shopping is by far my favourite pastime! It's like an addictive drug, which possesses your soul, and before you know it you've spent hundreds of pounds on a few clothes and a stunning pair of shoes! I could spend eternity shopping with my mum, as she actually does have a decent fashion sense. However, my brother and sister utterly loathe shopping, so if the whole family go there'll be plenty of whinging and whining from them. It's strange the relationship between my mum and me. I know most people obviously feel a closer connection with their mum but with mine, we're more like best friends. ...read more.


If I stay at home, I might go on the computer and talk to my friends or even on the phone. At about 11.00pm when my brother and sister are asleep. I'll listen quietly to music in my room, lie down and think about life, and everything in it. My worries, my hopes and dreams are all thought about when I'm by myself. I think about all sorts. The kind of things that others like my friends just wouldn't understand. Don't get me wrong, I'm very open with people, but there are some things in life, which are too complicated to explain. Obviously there are all the standard rhetorical questions, such as the meaning of life. But also other complications; feelings and matters of the heart! After a couple of days thought, these normally come up in conversations with close friends, so after all this personal thought most of it ends up out in the open anyway! After a lot of serious thinking and a drowsy feeling taking over my body, I turn off the music and then switch myself off. Sleep at last! A life in the day of .... Page 1 ...read more.
