Autobiography - creative writing.

Extracts from this document...


Autobiography On Saturday the 28th of December, I was born in Guernsey. I don't know what happened, apart from the fact that I was born prematurely by a month. The first memory I can really remember is when my Dad first took me dinghy sailing. I was only four so in a way the sea was scary. My Dad got the boat ready and helped me with my lifejacket. Then we were off; it was amazing we went so fast. My Dad showed me what to do; he even let me steer. We zoomed around the harbour looking at all the boats. We tried to guess where they came from by looking at their flags. From that day, I have loved sailing. My next memory that I can call to mind is when I was seven. It was Christmas time. My auntie and two cousins came for a holiday from Australia. more.


My mum and I went to collect them; they were in a plastic bag looking very lonely. I called them the five little Lilies, as they were so small, you couldn't tell which was which. They were very pretty; they had a striking red stripe on them and a blue head. When we put them in the tank they all hovered together but as they became braver, they spread out and started to explore their new surroundings. I loved them. Later on, we added more fish, which made the tank alive with activity. I think fish the best pets ever. A later memory is when I went to my second Guide Camp. It was at Foxlease, which is near the New Forest. I went with five friends, Abby, Emma, Claudie, Vanessa and Rebecca. more.


I had raised two hundred pounds over three years so as a thank-you they let me go into the tamarins and marmoset enclosure. A zookeeper took my mum and me in. She started to shake a box; all the monkeys came leaping towards us. She opened the box and showed us what was in there. It was maggots; they were squirming and wriggling all over the place. She picked one up and held it up to the marmoset that greedily took it and ate it. She gave me a maggot and told me to hold out my hand, sure enough a marmoset came and took it from me. I was amazed that they would come so close to humans and trust them. I love going to the zoo. Some day I would like to be a zoologist and work there but that's in the future and this is now. You never know, someday I might be writing about working in a zoo. Well I can dream! more.

    This reflects a narcissistic aspect of Peterâs personality because he is un-bothered by the pain he causes others and he thinks that he is the best and everything revolves around him which also means he has good positive self-concept of himself but it almost exceeds to over self-confidence.

  2. Original Writing

    It's a strange feeling. Having a memory so clear that you can even remember the weather but there is almost no sound. It's like watching a television programme that has been muted. It kind of makes you wonder what the actors are talking about, whether or not it's crucial to the plot.
