Below is an example:
In the morning I usually wake up at a quarter past six, but I always get up at half past six because I like to stay in bed late. First, I go to the bathroom and I have a shower. Second, I get dressed and I brush my hair. Then, I go to the kitchen and I have breakfast with my brother Mike. I often eat cereals with milk while Mike drinks a cup of tea with biscuits. After, I leave home.
At a quarter past eight I get to school. I walk to school because it’s near my house while my mum drives Mike to school. He goes to Kensington Academy in the city centre. I’m never late. If you are late, you get detention. It means you must stay on after school activities. School day starts at half past eight with registration. After that, I go to my lesson at ten to nine. Break is from a quarter to eleven to five past eleven. At half past one I have lunch at the school canteen. Then I have other lessons until half past three.
On Monday and Wednesday when I have extra school activities. On Monday I play the guitar and on Wednesday I play football with the school team. I arrive home at about a quarter past five.
In the evening I have dinner at seven o’clock with my family. If I don’t stay on at school, I do my homework in the afternoon. After dinner, I surf the net and I read a book in bed. I really love reading, especially thriller.
