Dec 2019 Topic: Routines

 

This topic is open to everyone who is online during the PA-MOJA week from Dec 2-6 (and after as well).

The goal is for everyone to address the question themselves, but then also leave comments in response to the responses of others so that everyone can learn about each other.

ROUTINES TOPIC: Pick one thing in your daily routine and describe it in detail (for example: waking up routine, hair care, cleaning clothes, getting food for meals, making meals, eating a meal, cleaning, going to bed routine, etc).

Please be as specific as possible so others from different places or situations can really understand what you do during this activity.

      Wow, you have such a busy day! Your schedule is very different from my own! I wake up at around 6:30am and go to sleep around 11pm or later and that in itself is a large difference already!
      A similarity I noticed however is that you mentioned you sometimes play basketball, I actually play basketball too! I practice once a week and have a game once a week as well.
      I really enjoyed reading your routine and comparing and contrasting our day to day lives!

      • Hey Mr Martin, thanks for sharing our routine with me
        you also do have a busy day.I am looking forward to Skype call you tomorrow and also see the post of the young ladies .THANKS SO MUCH.

  14. As Heeva said, all the routines are so similar! That’s expected however since we all go to the same school so our blocks line up. We probably have some teachers in common as well, making it even more similar!!

    I’m curious to see how our routines differ from everyone else’s!

  15. Hello!

    Here is my daily routine:)

    6:00- my alarm goes off and I get out of bed. I grab my glasses and phone, turn on some music and head to the bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face.

    6:10- I put on my clothes and pack my backpack

    6:20- I head downstairs to the kitchen to get my breakfast from my fridge. I’ll usually eat a yogurt bowl with granola and fruit but if I’m feeling creative I’ll make a breakfast sandwich or French toast.

    6:35- I then grab my lunch from the fridge and my bags and leave my house and head for the gym.

    6:45- I am at the gym working out.

    7:55- I change into my school clothes.

    8:14- I make it school. I quickly grab what I need from my locker and leave my jacket then head upstairs to English.

    8:15- I’m in English.

    9:40- I head downstairs to the change rooms for gym class. I change and meet my class in the gym.

    9:44- I’m in gym class.

    11:03- gym class ends. I change back into my clothes, wash my hands, grab my lunch from my locker, and sit with my friends in our spot. I try to get all of my English homework that I got in block one done in my lunch block. If I find that something stressed my out too much in the day I will meditate (for like 5 mins). Then I eat my lunch. I’ll always have cheese, crackers, and grapes.

    12:25- I pack up my bag and head to my next class, science.

    12:30- I’m in science.

    1:49- I head to spanish which is on the last floor.

    1:53- The last block starts! Im in spanish till the bell rings and I’m free.

    3:12- I go to my locker and pack up. I then walk to the parking lot and get a ride home with my brother.

    3:30- I get home. I put all my stuff in my room and eat my dinner immediately. I’ll have take out or homemade food depending on the day. It’ll probably be some Persian dish.

    4:00- I get changed for a quick run! I put my music in, put my jacket on, stretch, and start running. I run down a big hill and then up a big hill so the beginning is always fun but coming back is the difficult part.

    4:20- I’ll take a shower and then get dressed.

    4:40- I start my homework. It could take around 2-6 hrs depending on how much I get. But it is usually somewhere in the middle like 3 hrs.

    7:40- I get twenty minutes to do nothing. I’ll probably use this time to watch YouTube or Netflix, listen to a podcast and simultaneously clean my room, or FaceTime a friend who I don’t talk to enough:).

    8:00- At this time I put out my outfit for the next day, pack my lunch, make my breakfast, pack my backpack, brush my teeth, and wash my face.

    8:45- I have a bit of time to read or listen to music or a podcast.

    9:00- I set my alarm and fall asleep:)

    • HI SHIEVA, you really have a busy day just as i do,its just that my school routine is different with yours.Its good to know that you like having physical exercise as i have seen that you go for gym most of the times. Keep up shieva.

    • Hi Shieva
      It seems that you have a busy routine just like mine.I am also happy to see that you have kept aside time for exercise.The only thing that is different from my routine is that you wake up very late but i know that all is about the difference in the school routine.I am also happy for sharing your routine with us.
      JACKLINE

    • hi Shieva,
      Your day since to be well used and am happy for sharing with me our dairy routine.From our routine I have also realize that you love listening to music as I do but for me I only listen to music at home during the holiday because am in a boarding school and we are not allowed to carry any musical instrument in school.thank you for share with me our routine

  16. Hello, I am going to talk about my time at school:

    8:20 – 9:40: I have woodworking class, in this class we cut, sand, and shape wood to make different things. The last thing we made was a folding stool.
    9:44 – 11:03: I have mt communications class, in this class we practice different forms of communication in French. This is my least favorite class of the whole day.
    11:07 – 12:26: This is my lunch block, in this block I eat my lunch and play video games on my computer with my friend. The worst part about this block is the sad moment when the bell rings at the end of the block.
    12:30 – 1:49: This is my English block, right now we are writing a short story and developing characters to use in those stories.
    1:53 – 3:12: This is my science block, right now we are doing biology. I really hate biology because it involves a lot of memorization which is something I’m not good at. Though I hate biology, science is still my favorite class this semester.

    That’s the end of my school day.

  17. Coming back to this thread and reading the other replies, I am surprised to see just how similar our routines are! Considering we all live in the same area, I expected to have some similarities with our day-to-day lives; however, the degree to which we can relate to each other is astounding!

    I look forward to hearing some routines of those who do not live in Canada so we can compare and contrast.

  18. Hey everyone,

    This is my daily routine of a typical school day in my life! However, depending on the day, the schedule does change around a bit.

    6:30 am – I usually set my alarm for 6:30am so I have time to lay in bed for a little while before I start getting ready.
    6:40 – 6:50 am – I start getting ready for school – Brushing my teeth, doing my hair and picking out an outfit.
    7:10am- I make my bed and get my backpack and everything I need for school ready.
    7:20am – I usually use this time to finish up anything I have left to do for homework, and if not I usually am on my phone or watch TV.
    7:45am – I start walking to school.
    8:05am- I arrive at school.
    8:05am- Usually I go to the library to wrap up any last assignments,or hangout with my friends before school starts.
    8:20am- I attend my first class, “Perspectives Globales”, which is a french course.
    9:40am- I attend my second class, Anatomy and Physiology.
    11:03am- I attend my third class, French. I am in French Immersion, meaning I have been speaking French since preschool.
    12:30pm- Finally, my last block of the day, which is Chemistry.
    1:50pm- I start walking home.
    2:10pm- I arrive at home, and the first thing I usually do is play with my dog for a bit. Once I’m done, I make myself something to eat and relax for a bit.
    2:40pm- I usually am on my phone for a bit or watch TV.
    3:45pm- I start my homework, which I usually get a lot of.
    For the rest of the evening, it is hard to pinpoint certain times that I do things because my homework does take me a different amount of time each day. But basically, I do my homework, and usually at some point take a break to eat, and then get back at it. Once I’m done my homework, depending on the time, I either have time to relax for a bit or it’s so late that I just want to go to sleep. It really depends on how much homework I have, but on average, I usually finish at some point between 7-11pm, but has been as early as 6pm and as late as 2am before.
    Once I finally do finish my homework, I go to take a shower, brush my teeth, cleanse my face, and then depending on the time, I’ll be on my phone for a bit if it’s not too late, or head straight to bed if it’s late.

    Then everything repeats!

  19. Hello everybody

    I will be running through my daily routine in this comment

    7:00-7:15
    I usually wake up during this time. I take a long time to get out of bed so I make sure to put my alarm far away from me.

    7:15-8:00
    This is the time to get ready for school. I brush my hair and teeth and get into some fresh clothes. I make sure my bag is packed then depending on the time I eat breakfast with my sister.

    8:00-8:15
    I leave the house around 8:00, with my father and sister. My sister is in middle school and her school starts at 8:30. I get dropped off and head to my first class, English.

    8:20-9:40
    I really enjoy having English as my first block. There is not as much work as my other classes and every other day, the class gets to read and that really helps me clear my mind.

    9:44-11:03
    My next class is Science which is not my favourite, but I have a nice teacher. We have learned about chemistry and physics and currently learning Earth Science.

    11:07-12:26
    Lunch is where I get to meet up with friends and hang out. Most of the time I am doing homework for the next class but I get a break now and then. I have good friends that I can joke around and have a good time with.

    12:30-1:49
    Next is one of my favourite yet least favourite class, Social Studies. This is when I learn about History and how the rest of the world is doing. I forgot to mention that I am in french immersion. English and Science are in English but the rest of my subjects are in french. This class is one of them. I have to speak french, write french, listen to french and read french. I have been in this program since I was five years old. I don’t particularly enjoy french but I am holding up pretty well.

    1:53-3:12
    My last class of the day is Physical Education. This is another course I take in french. I enjoy this class somedays and somedays not so much. Our class takes a run every Friday and do sports on the rest of the days. I am happy it keeps me active and healthy.

    3:30-4:00
    My parents pick me up and my sister and we come home around 3:30. I usually lay around until 4:00 the I do whatever I need to do. Whether that is homework, cleaning my room or playing with my dog.

    6:00
    My family eats dinner at this time. Sometimes we eat it at 7:00 but no later than that.

    7:00-9:00
    After dinner, I usually have an extra-curricular I do. I do taekwondo, first aid training and cadets during this time. I also am a tutour on Wednesday and I have math classes on Thursday, both after school.

    9:00-10:00
    This is when I get ready for bed. I wash my face, brush my teeth and get into comfy clothes. If I am not sleepy I get a book and read until I am ready to go to sleep.

    Thank you for reading about my day
    Hope to see yours!

  20. Hey everyone!

    So in this comment, I’m going to walk you through my daily routine for school.

    7:25 – My alarm wakes me up at this time and I usually roll around in bed for a few minutes before I actually get up and start my day.

    7:30 – I head on over to the bathroom, brush my teeth, and put my contacts in. If I was too lazy to wash my face the night before I do it now.

    7:35 – I put on my outfit which I usually choose the night before. At my school, we do not wear uniforms, so I have some options for my clothes. I then proceed to do my makeup and brush my hair.

    7:50 – I head downstairs and eat breakfast with my parents.

    8:00 – My mom and I head out the door. She drops me off at school and I usually get there at 8:15. I have my first block off so I usually study in the morning until block 2.

    9:44 – My first class starts. This semester, I have physics at this time. Each class is 80 minutes long, so the block ends at 11:00.

    11:03 – I have my lunch block (block 3). I spend my lunches in the Math Tutorial Room with my friends where we socialize and study together.

    12:30 – The fourth block and my second class of the day. I have Law this block (which I really love learning about!)

    1:49 – My last class of the day! English! This is definitely my favourite class of the day.

    3:12 – The bell rings to dismiss us at this time. After school, my schedule varies. Sometimes, I go to a coffee shop to study with friends, go to my volunteer jobs, or wait for my mom to pick me up at school.

    4:45 – I usually get home around this time if I don’t have volunteering after school. I take a break for an hour, eat a snack, and play with my dog before going back to studying.

    5:45-7:45 – Study time! I take periodic breaks during this time, but mostly I am busy studying.

    8:00 – We eat a fairly late dinner around this time. I always make sure to clear the table and wash the dishes. Afterwards, I start winding down for the night. I wash my face, get into my pyjamas, and maybe call one of my friends to talk for a little while. If I have any more homework left, I will also finish it after dinner.

    To be completely honest, I do spend quite a bit of time on my phone before bed which is super unhealthy. It is definitely a habit I am trying to break!

    10:30-11:00 – This is around the time I go to bed. Then I repeat everything all over again!

    • Hi Heeva,
      Thank you for sharing your routine.I see that yours is not as tight as mine.How many lessons do you have in a day?
      Do you have break time?Do you have group discussions?I also chat when the school is closed.(during holidays)

      _JACKLINE

      • Yes, your routine is definitely much tighter than mine! In one day, I only have three classes. I am at school from 8AM-3PM and I am lucky enough to have two breaks in the day, each 80 minutes long. In class, we definitely do lots of group discussions and I chat with my friends in groups during my break time. Thanks for the comment!
