A Day in the Life of Matthew Malkin

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

A Day in the Life of Matthew Malkin I wake up at about 11:45, with the help of my mum or dad, it is yet another boring Sunday. I eventually get up and make my way to the bathroom and have a wash. Once I am clean, I pull my clothes on and make my way downstairs. Another Sunday, more homework. I have a slice of toast or a croissant, and then I check my diary. English essays to finish and perfect, and an Art book to complete. I switch on the computer and hear it start up with a hum. Once it has loaded I search the desktop for the saved documents I need for English. I eventually find them, and open them. Long time no see. I read them over and scour them for mistakes and spelling errors. As I read over the old work I have done, I notice how the standard of my work has improved over time, as I wrote the work in year 10. ...read more.

I eventually find a pack of double chocolate chip muffins, hidden away so that I don't eat the lot at one sitting! I take one out and devour it quickly. I'm still hungry so I put a pizza in the oven. I set the timer, which is broken, so it takes unnecessary effort to get it functioning properly. I go back into the lounge and switch the TV on again. There's still nothing on. I find a video from the cabinet and shove it into the VCR. I start watching the film, "Baby Boy," but it is cut short, as the timer on the oven for my pizza goes off. I run to the kitchen in haste and bang my leg against the doorframe. It's a small price to pay, to subdue the empty feeling in my stomach. I pull out the pizza and push it onto a plate. I cut it apart into uneven triangle pieces. I dash back into the lounge and switch on the TV again. I eat on the new couch, but I'm not supposed to, and return to the film. ...read more.

Conclusion

That lasts for an hour, and then everything is finished. I'm exhausted, and I struggle to even pick up my kitbag. I make my way to my dad's car that is waiting in the car park outside. It takes about 15 minutes to get home through the city traffic. I get home, dump my kit in my room and then return to the lounge to watch the television. At 6:30 is a new episode of 'The Simpsons!' I can't miss that, so I watch that, then 'Malcolm in the Middle'. By then, the time is 7:30p.m. I eat a late meal, and then I go and have a shower. After I have got washed and changed, I get my things ready for the next day back at school. Once my bag is packed and all is done, it is about 10:00p.m. I watch some TV for about half an hour then I switch it off. I go upstairs, brush my teeth and get into bed. I read for a bit, a book on the killing of Tupac Shakur. I put my book down and switch off my light. My day is finally over. 915 words Matthew Malkin Page 1 5/1/2007 ...read more.
