My Narrative


“Get down get down,” the captain shouted. That’s when I realized that the Red Coates were heading towards the tree I was hiding behind. My heart was pounding and I was panting. I didn’t know what to do. That time I thought to myself “Am I going to die?”

Neal Armstrong

The wonderful American hero Neal Armstrong has sadly past away on the August the 25th 2012. He died because of a heart surgery. People at America had known him as the first person who landed on the moon, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” were his first words landing.

Landing on the moon was a race against them soviets. There was a cold war. So they decided that the first country to land on the moon wins.

Cross Country

Oh no it’s cross country training, nearly everybody hates doing that. “Why do we have to do it Mrs” I asked. She replied say “ It’s only a short run, cross country is coming up soon. 
"When” I asked hoping that it was not a Tuesday. Luckily it was on a Friday where it was the end of the week.

The first time we went was pretty easy. But the only thing was that we got forced to keep running. Some teachers even told us that if we don’t start running we will have to spend our time in detention. That was the worst thing about practises that were short.

Later on in the week the teachers decided to make the training harder and longer. It was past the beach all the way to the farm gate and back. It was so far that I had to stop and have a rest on the way. But the teachers who were around kept telling me to keep going.

Some people cheated. As the first couple of people came back they would turn around, so that they don't have to run all the way. I think that it was a bad idea because

Smoking - Not My Future

  
Some people are all about being cool. They smoke because of that reason and because they are influenced by their friends. But they do it without looking into the future. Smoking causes health problems, can affect how you look and can waste your money. 




Smoking is very a not good idea because it could cause many health problems. It is known that there are 4000 chemicals that are put into every cigarette. Smoking gives you a higher chance of dying, in fact 4500 people die in NZ every year. For pregnant women smoking is also very bad for the unborn baby. 




Smoking can also affect the outside of your body. It makes you look old. Our class watched a video, where there was a man interviewing a lady who looked older than our teacher. But she wasn't. She looked like she was in her 80’s while our teacher is still in her 40’s. Which is half the age she looked like.




Cigarette is a also very expensive habit. In shops the price of cigarettes are $15 for one packet. It could cost you $105 a week if you smoke a pack a day. This could also cost thousands of dollars a year. If you are wondering why the government lets people sell them, it’s because they get a lot of money for each box of cigarettes that is sold. This is because the government has to spend lots of money on the health problems from smoking.




I really think that teenagers shouldn’t start smoking. Even if people in your family smokes I’d 


advise you to don't start. It is a really strong thing. Once you start you can get addicted to it. So the best idea is to keep away.
