1. What is your favorite day like?
Well, it will be like Utopia.
It will be some Sunday when I can keep sleeping until the bio clock wakes me up or the warm sun rays. There is no need to rush up and one hour of mobile phone game can be on the schedule. I will have sandwich and milk as breakfast with joyful Mozart music all around me. Before finishing breakfast, I get ten calls from friends asking me to hang out. For the rest of the day, we will wander like hobos in a mall for food, shopping, movies and coffee. No worries of school and homework haunt us and we would be thoroughly carefree. It will be amazing if that can actually happen.
2. What time do you get up every day?
During weekdays, our morning class starts at 7 and it is about a 40 minute’s ride from home to school so I have to get up at around 5:30 so that I won’t be late for my duty.
And on weekends, I will sleep as long as my body wants. Sometimes I get up at 10 or even later. That is the only chance to show my love to my beloved bed.
3. How has your daily routine changed?
Well, it didn’t change much. I always have to get up pretty early during weekdays to go to school and stay up pretty late to do my homework at night. There is some change though. I stay up much later now. In the past, I would finish my homework at around 10:30 pm and then go to bed. But now, I won’t finish my homework until as late as 1:30 and still fail to go to bed because the unfinished homework keeps lingering in my head.
4. What changes do you want to have about your daily routines?
Definitely I want more sleeping time and less homework. Being a student in China is so pressing and intense. We need to get up as early as 5:30 am and keep doing our homework till as late as 2 am. Do the math. How many hours do we have for sweet dreams? I often see my classmates nodding off in the morning classes. What is the point then to drag us so early to school and to allow us to take a nap by the table in the classroom?
And as for the homework and school assignments, they take over each minute of our school lives and even life after school. When we do the homework, we want to break free. And when we are free, we feel guilty that our homework will be overdue. We just live in a loop always. I seriously hate that.
