A day in the life of a student
I woke up in the morning and looked at the alarm clock. It had been ringing continuously for the last few minutes. Finally after having pressed on its button, I stretched my body and legs on the bed and got up. I picked my brush and tongue cleaner and walked to the bathroom at the end of the corridor. Finishing it quickly, I shaved and bathed in quick succession. I dressed up and went to the mess quickly to have a hot breakfast peacefully before it gets crowded.
I returned to the hostel room on the second floor.
I completed the assignment to be submitted today. I looked at the time table and collected the relevant
notebooks and came out of my room. Having locked my room I walked towards the
classroom. I met Rohit on the way and we
greeted each other warmly.
The noise in the classroom disappeared
soon as the professor had come in. The first hour class started. The lecture
was going on smoothly. I understood most
of it. However, I noted the points difficult to understand in my notes. I would
go to the lecturer in the afternoon to clarify those points. I attended
remaining three periods. I felt thirsty
and hungry. I walked to the mess and had
lunch. I liked the sambar, capsicum
curry and stuffed chapathis. But I ate
lightly as heavy lunch makes me sleep in the afternoon.
I took the notes
for the tutorials and classes in the afternoon.
The refill in my pen was emptied and the pen stopped writing. I borrowed the spare pen that Rohit always carried
in his bag, and managed my class work.
Returned to my hostel room, I changed in to
shorts and sports T-shirt. I closed the
window shutter to prevent mosquitoes from coming in. After finishing tea and snacks at the mess,
I ran towards the badminton court along with my racquet. We had to vacate the court when the next slot
commenced. We shifted to volleyball
court and enjoyed playing for an hour. I
felt exhausted and tired. I returned
back to the hostel. I bathed and changed
into a fresh pyjamas and kurta. I
relaxed for an hour.
I had my dinner
and took a small walk around the hostel and finally returned to the room. I opened the text books and note books on the
table one by one and revised the day’s lectures. I was
totally absorbed in the studies and did not notice the clock ticking beyond 11
o clock. I realized that when my father
called me and inquired my welfare. I decided finally, that was it for the day and
prepared to sleep. I switched off lights
and switched on the bed light. I drank a
glass of water. I started to sleep hoping
that I would have good dreams.
