Breakfast, pack your books and notebooks, go to school, take notes in classes, maybe get scolded for bad handwriting, turn in a paper at the end of class, wash the chalk or marker off your hands, read a book or chat with friends during the break, perhaps talk to someone on the bus on the way home, or take a shortcut through the park, or be angry at parents because they’re late to pick you up; come home, do the homework, mess up a notebook with a leaking pen, watch some TV or read a book.
