Introduction

A Life in the Day of Many people have compared life to a roller coaster. I can't hate to agree with the masses but the truth is I do. It goes up and down but it is always moving. I help but notice that its always going to end. I see life as a decline. 7:30, My ritual waking time. This is actually the time I get woken up. Not wake. More often than not my head slumps back on the pillow. There are many ways that I am enticed out of bed, normally the sheets are ripped off my back. This is particularly effective in November, when the air is crisp and chilled. I do not believe I could start my day without a shower but even after this I am not fully awake. My head is never really clear until about lunchtime. This cannot be helped by the absence of breakfast in my life. I am told time and time again, 'It's the most important meal of the day', but I just can't stomach food in the morning. There is then the mad scramble for books. ...read more.

Middle

I think the course should be spread out over a longer period of time. This would help to ease the pressure. I generally cope with school ok. I'm not bothered by exams. I have that annoying fact retaining mind. I can remember what year the Battle of Britain was but not what happened on Eastenders last night. After school I'm usually feeling rather peckish. This is when I raid the fridge. Anything will do at this point. The nearest thing. Often a slice of bread or a bowl of cereal. I set homework aside and promise to always do it later. This results in a frantic storm the next morning blaming the closest person to hand. I am like every other teenager of my generation in the way that I like a healthy dose of TV after school. A time where my brain can shutdown and let my eyes do all the work. It's after this that I drag myself upstairs to my room where I listen to music. This is also the only time I would ever consider doing homework. Music plays an important role in my life. ...read more.

Conclusion

It's just a case of what's clean. I'm rather meticulous about what I consume. I won't eat fast food unless I trust the content. If I go out I try to buy from small, family-run bakers or cafes. I like to think I can trust them not to use medically unsuitably deemed meat. This has definitely come from my mother. She won't buy food unless it is kept half a mile away from any chemical. The computer is normally the next stop. This is where I can do any homework I have that involves typing. Again I have lots of music on my computer. This I download off the internet most nights. Before bed I do one of two things. I either read a book or watch TV. I never used to like reading but recently it became addictive. Ever since I read 'The Beach' by Alex Garland, it has become second nature and often find I have picked up a book without realising. TV has always helped me sleep. I'm always drifting off in front of it. It's probably something to do with the whole story before bed routine inherited from childhood. I will fall asleep with troubles set aside anticipating the day ahead. Conrad Alderton ...read more.
