Tony's Important Thing
By Tony
Genre: Non-fiction
Category: Student Examples

computerMy important thing is my computer, because I spend most of my time on it. It helps me with most of my homework, gets me out of bad moods, makes me better at math, and keeps me in touch with people all over the world.

My family got my PC about three years ago. My PC's nickname is "The Big Computer." We gave it that name because we have three computers, and they all have very simple names. There's "The Black Computer," because it's black, "The Middle Computer," because it's in the middle of the other two, and "The Big Computer," because it's the biggest.

My PC is very helpful when it comes to homework, because I can type faster than I can write. I can also do research on it from the Internet, thus saving a trip to the library. When I am doing a science project, I use my computer because it makes my presentation board a lot neater and more understandable.

I also use my computer to play games. I play games because they are fun, challenging, and they cheer me up. I get cheered up when I beat a level or a boss. My PC helps me defeat everything from Vikings to Evil Marios, and it helps me build indestructible forts and destroy major cities. I also play games where I can build cities and watch them grow under my control.

My PC keeps me connected to the world and people I know. When I check my e-mail I get lots of mail, even mail from Japan. My PC helps me keep track of where my uncle and aunt are, since they travel a lot. It also lets me play games on-line with my relatives in the lower-48.

As you can see, my computer is my important thing, and is important to my life (and grades). It can help me with my homework, get me out of bad moods, and keep me in touch with people all over the world.
