Introduction

Mark Bunce 12th November 2001 Group 10G1 GCSE ENGLISH COURSWORK Non-fiction Write a detailed autobiographical account of your life. Try hard to include interesting, and entertaining, detail and anecdotes in developing a vivid picture of what has happened to you in the short life you have lived so far. Life so far I was out of breath but I couldn't stop not until I had reached the stream. I concentrated on getting to the stream so much that I had forgot about Craig I wondered if he was still in there or had got out another way. When I reached the stream I clambered into a small hole in the big thorn bush, I felt a sharp pain on my leg I looked back and saw my trousers caught on a thorn. I didn't have time to unhook them so I pulled and they ripped but I did not care I just needed to get in. This was our base so I figured that if Craig got out he would be here soon and if not I would have to go back and see.

Middle

There to my relief was the old grey rabbit I thought I had killed. The teacher asked me why I had stopped, so I asked her why the rabbit was in here and she said that the rabbit moved classrooms to get cleaned because they had found a sweat stuck to it's fur. When I thought I had killed the rabbit I got really scared so from then on I tried to think before I done something stupid. The thing was this did not last for that long. I did not do much for the next couple of years because the era of the computer games came. As for most things I got bored of it when something new came along, this something new was quite significant in my life. The new thing was that I was moving house, I was not moving far actually it was just down the road into some new houses. I was really exited about this because it was a new area to play in but at the same time there was still all my friends down the road.

Conclusion

As usual I got bored of this after two years and I decided to join a football team. This year I was thirteen and the best year for sport in every football tournament I competed in my team won, at the end of the year I had collected up seven trophies. The next season my team did not do very well and we split up I was very annoyed because I enjoyed winning but when it came to losing I was not very good at it. This did not last long though I joined another team and we done very well but I was worried this year because it was my S.A.T.S examinations. I tried to revise but I could not for long periods of time so I thought I was going to fail. This was the most frightening thing I had ever done but once it was over I found out I had done as good as I was expected. Now I am preparing for my G.C.S.E's and I am still playing football I think that so far in life I have learnt some valuable lessons but I have only lived a short while and have a lot to go so hopefully I will succeed in what I do.
