Being shaken awake by my mum I turn over annoyed, thrown my pillow over my head and groan

Extracts from this document...


A life in the day of Shaheed Hasham Being shaken awake by my mum I turn over annoyed, thrown my pillow over my head and groan in miserable agony at the thought of having another early morning. That dreaded feeling, the kind that makes you feel like your heart's in the pit of your stomach, overcomes me as I know that at any moment my mum is going to put on the light, open the curtains and threaten me with a jug of cold water or being dragged by my feet out of bed, and promptly down the very bumpy staircase. I begrudgingly pull myself off the bed and half walk, half fall into my bathroom. Even with all my misery it gets ten times worse with the dread of school. I still do not understand the concept of going to school early, everyone is completely out of it anyway. If I had my way, at this time I'd be lying on my bed fast asleep. Brushing my teeth I choke on the minty toothpaste, making my throat sting, as I realise I haven't done my maths homework...again! ...read more.


I tend to struggle in lessons making it incredibly hard for me to concentrate and so I've adopted the title of class idiot! That is in a good sense. There are a few good points about school do not get me wrong, break times are the best part of the day, especially with the wonderful fresh air! Just joking, it's the only time I really get to catch up with my friends (and an opportunity to finish that Maths homework I forgot to do!), basically having some fun without the teachers looking over my shoulder and telling me to be quiet. As always though my half hour of bliss is gone as suddenly as it began at the sound of that screeching bell. Really, is there any need to deafen us, teachers shouldn't be surprised we don't listen, we can't b****y hear! Unfortunately the lessons after lunch seem to be the longest and most boring, even if you enjoy the subject. I have one big problem in class and that's I am a non-stop talker. ...read more.


Getting home finally I lie down on the couch and watch television. 10 minuets after finally having some relaxing time I hear those words that every person dreads "go do your homework now !" this automatically gets me crazy and I have sometimes a huge argument with my mum knowing that 99 percent of the time I'm going to loose and end up doing my homework. Homework is defiantly the most craziest thing anyone has ever come up with. There is no point doing work at home its not like your learning anything. School is enough if you ask me. No wonder were so tired every morning were up half the night doing it-unless your like me who forgets to. I seem to dislike going to bed yet I always want to sleep in the morning. I always use that same old phrase " just five minuets more" that's in the morning and evening. After about half an hour I go up to bed and I fall fast asleep only knowing that the next morning I have to go through this all over again-how depressing-don't get me wrong I'm not that bad. ...read more.
