A Day in my Life
I want to tell you about the way I like to live. I try to make my days be as different from each other as possible. That way, my life is interesting and this makes me happy. Let me tell you what kinds of things I do each day.
My day usually starts when I wake up. Sometimes, I wake up at 8:00am. Other times, I wake up at 11:00am. I go to sleep at different times at night, so I am never sure how long I must sleep the next day. For fun, there are some nights when I eat dinner at 1:00am! I listen to loud music and watch tv late into the night, so it is sometimes hard to fall asleep. I developed some sleeping problems that make it so there is no obvious way for me to go to sleep anymore. This is a harder task than it used to be.
When I wake up, I do not usually eat breakfast. My stomach is still full from my late-night dinner. I might drink a cup of soda in the morning to help me wake up, or have some friend potatoes if I do feel a little hungry. I like to eat more at night than in the morning, so this is my pattern. Most days, there are many interruptions in my eating as I like to watch tv while I eat. I do not pay attention to eating, and so it takes me a long time to finish. I eat lunch for about 2 hours, so it is hard for me to accomplish very much during the day.
I like to play on my computer or watch movies most of the day, and only get up to get food or to go to the bathroom. I am not really an energetic person. When you asked me to go for a hike with you last week, I just did not want to walk that long.
Okay, thank you for asking me about what my days are like. What do you think? Do you want to live like me?
