Petro's Working Day

Petro is a first-year student. His working day is rather tight. He doesn’t like getting up late. Petro always says, “early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”. He believes there is not enough of each day as it is, without wasting the beginning of it.

This day starts like any other day. Petro wakes up at seven o'clock. He is used to staying in bed for a minute or two, then gets up, opens the window, makes his bed and does his morning exercises. He likes to take a cold shower every morning, so he puts on his slippers and goes to the bathroom. After he has brushed his teeth, shaved and dressed he goes to the kitchen. At 7.20 a.m. he is ready for breakfast. As a rule he does not prepare breakfast, his mother does it for him, but if she leaves home early he prepares it himself. Petro is sure that proper breakfast won’t do him any harm. For breakfast he usu­ally has eggs, sausage or cheese sandwiches and a cup of coffee or tea. During break­fast he listens to the news or music on the radio.

At 7.40 a.m. Petro leaves for the uni­versity. His university is far from his home, so it takes him twenty five minutes to get there by route taxi. On his way to the University he often meets his friends, who are hurrying to the University too. His classes begin at 8.15 a.m. As a rule, Petro has three or four classes a day. At 11.45 a.m. he has a bite at the university canteen. As a matter of fact he stays at the University till five or six o’clock to study in the lab or in the library.

When he gets home he has his dinner. He usually has a little rest and then at seven he sits down to do his homework. It takes him a couple of hours to get it done. In the evening after supper Petro likes to sit down in the chair with a good book or watch TV. Sometimes he goes to the cinema or visits his friends or they come to visit him. He has a lot of friends and they often spend time together, especially on Sundays. As soon as he feels sleepy he brushes his teeth, goes to his room, sets his alarm clock for seven and goes to bed. Although Petro is a hard-working student he never has time to do all he wants to do.
