Work Begins Ireland 1909.16 December Work begins on the Titanic. Nearby the Olympic is also being constructed. The Titanic meant to be indestructible. There’s about 12’000 workers on site. Most are locals. First we have to position the keels of the ship. Then the frame work got put up. The hulls got designed and we chucked them on with our amazing crane (gantry). After we all put on the partitions other known as the bulkheads. They increase the safety measure. We next did all the finishing touches. We made the beds, living quarters and dining areas. But I realised that the only way that this ship could sink is if it took a hit at the hull I just hope that doesn't happen………
Launch Ireland 1911. 31 May Before the Titanic was launched the Olympic had to go but it didn’t last long it collided with a Warship the HMS Hawke. None were injured but the Olympic had to come back to Ireland and delayed the Titanic’s launch. We worked on the Olympic for 2 months. The original voyage for the Titanic was on 20 March 1912 but instead we launched on the 10 April 1912. The Titanic is in the water but not ready to take off but tickets were selling I can't get one……
Finishing Touches Ireland 1911.23 July I worked in the 1 st class rooms. They are meant to be as good as some of the best hotels so I have quite a lot of pressure on my back. We had to put in tonnes of things like two expensive staterooms, sitting room, two bedrooms, two dressing rooms, a bathroom and a private deck. So I have tonnes to do. But I’m getting a good earning of pounds. But I could never afford one of these rooms…. Well maybe in twenty or so years. But there are competitions every where……
Joy, Joy and more JOY Ireland 1912. 4. April Good news! I just won a competition for the Titanic 1 st class Yay! We have nearly done the Titanic witch is great. The crew are training. Whilst I’m just chucking duvets on beds. I am going to pack after I’m done cause Boss let me off for a week I will have to pack all my wardrobe. I can’t believe it!!!!! ME!
We're Off! Southampton 1912.4. April We have arrived at Southampton. But We’re a day late. My room is amazing I feel like a king. The crew are really rushing to load the supply's. I don’t know why maybe they want to be quick. They might want to get us back on track with the time. We are going to Cherbourg, France some are just stopping there but we are going to pick up passengers as well…….. My OWN Deck!
Paradise Atlantic I have completely settled into my room now it’s like I’ve lived here my whole life. One thing is worrying me though on the loud speaker the captain said we are going to be going a lot faster to get to New York quicker under the permit of chairman, Bruce Ismay. I don’t know why I’m worried maybe I think that the ship might sink get damaged…..
Iceberg!!!! Atlantic I was just in bed sleeping suddenly a huge bump that felt like an earthquake. I got up sleepily and wandered to my deck and looked around the was ice chunks all over my deck. I looked over the rails and saw a gigantic iceberg. I dreaded the worst and sprinted up to the main deck in my night gown. Many passengers were already up there, some where throwing snow balls at each other. I thought they had to much drinks or they had lost their mind. I didn’t have time to play so I rushed to the captain deck…
Panic Atlantic I pinned my ear against the captains door. He was chatting to the managing director Thomas Andrews he said ‘ This ship has two hours- at least until she’s under water’. Then he came and opened the door right on my nose. “ What should I do’ I stammered. He told me to go and wake up all the third class passengers then second then first. The next thing I knew I was in a third class state room rushing people out of bed and getting swore at…
C-c-cold Atlantic I had made it to the first class state rooms and woke them up. I rushed to the stairs to get greeted by a big gush of freezing water. Some how the water had already taken down the back of the ship. I ran uphill to the grand stairs and went up them. The water was over the captain cabin. People were in lifeboats I rushed to one but got rewarded for all my work with I lifejacket I swore under my breathe as I put on my lifejacket and rushed up to high ground….
Snap!!!!!! Atlantic I rushed up to the back of the ship. I heard a ear deafening crack under my feat. Splinter sliced at my back and got flung forward into the air and clonked my head on the rail at the end of the ship. ‘ Well that’s a way to get here’ I mumbled. The ship had just snapped in half! But the half I was on was plummeting to the cold, cold water. I flung my self over the railing ready to meet the water and I wasn’t looking forward to it……
Going down! Atlantic I was freaking out the ship was going down and was showing no sign of stopping we were 10 meters from the cold. I closed my eyes took a breath and fwooom I was under. I kicked and stroked un till I was at the surface I was freezing. From behind a girl hung on to me and I felt sorry for her so I let her cling on. I paddled over to a broken wall and clambered on I was so cold. The girl already had icicles on her hair. I looked at the dead people bobbing all-round me……
Saved! Atlantic An hour later the girl was dead. And I was near it. I started to sing to get my hopes up. But my mouth got to cold from opening so I stopped. I closed my eyes but a light stopped my from doing so. I was a lifeboat! ‘H-hellp’ I squeaked 3 times. They couldn’t hear me. I looked around I saw a man with a whistle around his neck he was dead of course and I blew it. They turned I was saved!
The end Atlantic I got to New York on the Carpathia a ship that rescued the passengers. I still have purple finger but I’m alive! I will back in Ireland soon. I am just glad that I will be a hero of this nigthmare!
