Day Of Mine

Start everything over again
Go to sleep in a comfortable bed that feels like lying on a cloud

Do my homework, have some fun
Eat a yummy snack, maybe take a nap
Finally, come home from school

Take notes until my hand hurts like I had just broken it
Do some work in a study hall
Walk around, see friends
Attend class
Get a ride to school by 7:40 am

Take a nice shower with warm water waking me up
Brush my teeth until they are squeaky-clean
Quickly fill up with a balanced breakfast 
Unwillingly get out of bed feeling like a zombie
Wake up at 6:30 am
