A: “My typical day is usually waking up at six because my alarm didn’t go off. So then I wake up late and then I get up and I have to rush everything that I do and get ready for school to feed my cat and everything. And then I go downstairs and don’t eat breakfast because we don’t have time for that. Then I get into the car. With my sister, my sister’s usually jamming music that no one even cares about. So you know, it’s not even that good music is really bad. Then, when I arrive at school, I go to the center and I hang out with my friends. Usually, we play heads up but sometimes we do homework. Sometimes I just don’t play homework because I like playing heads up. Then go to school. And I don’t really remember anything because I have a bad memory.”
