Hi, I’m Karla from an advanced group here at EnglishSmart and today I’m going to share a little bit about my life as a student, as a friend and as a member of a family. I’m 18 years old and I’m studying System Engineering in the UPQ (Universidad Politécnica de Querétaro). I just started the degree and I’m in the first quarter. I’m a student at EnglishSmart. I’m a member of the church choir and singing ministry. I’m also a member of a family.
A student’s life is a little bit complicated because sometimes you have a lot of homework and exams, but you also want to have fun and spend time with your family and friends. It’s even more complicated when you have more activities besides school,
Have you ever needed more time to do all the things you like and take care of all your responsibilities from college or work? Because I have! I’m always rushing, especially on Thursdays. My student life starts like this: Every morning I wake up at 5:10 am to get ready to go to school; I wake up, I have breakfast and then I go to school, it takes me around 30 minutes to get to school by car, I know, it’s a lot of time but it doesn’t matter because I’m always on time.
I have around 3 or 4 classes per day, and I go to school from 7 am to 1:00 pm every day but every Monday I have a course so every Monday I get out of school at 3:00 pm. Every day I take two buses to come back home, it takes me around one hour and a half. I take my English classes every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. I go to church to sing every Wednesday from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. I take guitar lessons every Thursday from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Every Saturday I go to church from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. I also go to church every Saturday to sing. I know, that’s a lot and I’m not including my college homework and my English homework.
I like to go to school because I see my friends and I have fun with them. Sometimes I go to eat or go downtown with my friends after school and then I go home.
Combining school with family and friends is not easy but if you organize your days and your week you can do it. An example of that in my case is to visit my family on Sundays maybe every other week because as you can see, I have a lot of activities including the activities that I do with my friends. Sometimes I’m too busy to be with my family, but I always try to find the time to do it because my family is important to me.
