I'm having a hard time describing what I did on a day to others in a chronological order.

10:00 AM - I woke up

11:00 AM - I left home and headed for a coffee shop to study English.

11:10 AM - I was waiting for the bus to come to the station for about an hour.

12:10 PM - I arrived at a coffee shop and started to study.

This is what I've done.

I woke up at 10:00 AM, and then 1 hour later, I left home and headed for a coffee shop to study English.

10 minutes after I left home, I arrived at the bus stop and was waiting for the bus.

I had been waiting for about an hour until the bus arrived and I got on the bus.

One hour after I started to wait, I finally got on the bus

I had been on the bus for less than an hour until I got off the bus.

I arrived at the coffee shop and started to study.

Q. I'd like to know how to connect the accidents by using conjunction naturally, in a chronological order.

All I know about this is

  • (time period) after (accident), the next accident.

  • (previous accident), and then (time period) later, (the next accident)

  • (previous accident with duration) until (the next accident).

Other than these, I'd like to know more about how to describe a series of accidents in a chronological order.

There are many out there; what makes SE unique is that it's for real questions; while you're just expressing your curiosity, but your request is not specific at all. – M.A.R. ಠ_ಠ Jul 26 '15 at 17:19

    "Incidents" not "accidents". Your sentences are too wordy. "I woke up at 10:00 AM and left home an hour later, headed for a coffee shop to study English." "10 minutes after I left home, I arrived at the bus stop." "The bus arrived an hour later." "The bus trip took less than an hour." Your last sentence is OK as is. – user21508 Jul 26 '15 at 22:49
  • You mean to say 12:10 PM, BTW. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jul 27 '15 at 0:25
  • This seems extremely broad. I'm not sure this isn't a list question. – Catija Jul 27 '15 at 2:03

    Calling this a series of "events" (they're definitely not "accidents") sounds more natural. – Chad Jul 27 '15 at 15:56
