A typical day for me is usually like this, I wake up at 6.15 in the morning. I usually have breakfast of cornflakes and a sandwich and I drink orange juice. Then I get prepared for driving to school.

At school, I have 7 classes a day; 4 different Science classes, English, Arabic classes and a religion class. Then I go back home at 1.15 p.m. I have lunch with my family. Usually, I eat Syrian typical food because my mom is originally from Syria.

After having lunch, I rest for 2 hours. Then, I sit with my mom and have tea with her. After that I start doing my homework and usually it doesn’t take more than 2-3 hours.

At night, I play some music on my guitar and chat with my friends from other countries. Sometime some of my friends come to my home and we watch a movie or we go to Starbucks café. We sit there, talk and laugh.

After I go back home, I check on my younger brothers and to see if my mom needs something. Then, I go to bed at 10.30 – 11.00 p.m. That’s my typical day.
