Model Answer 1:
As a child, my typical days were like that of most other children, who were attending an elementary school, except, of course, on the days when the weekend arrived because all I used to do during my weekend was to mostly sleep.
Anyway, my typical day started at around 7:00 am when I used to get ready to go to my school after freshening up and eating my breakfast. By the way, I really enjoyed having milk and cereal as my breakfast, but sometimes I had to eat just a plain vegetable sandwich with a glass of milk with it when there was no cereal. After arriving my school, of course, I needed to attend classes and other school activities for a marathon 7 hours that included an hour of lunch break and 30 minutes of physical exercise, which, by the way, I never really liked, although I liked the tiffin, provided by my school, of boiled egg, potato chips and a banana/apple a lot during the lunch hour.
After finishing school, I straight returned to my home and had to take some rest, as was the rule, put forth by my mother, before going out to play with my friends. Sometimes, I used to play football with my friends, and I used to serve as their regular goalkeeper, at a playground next to my home. Sometimes, I used to ride my bicycle there also without going too far from my home as my mother would never approve of that. Later in the day, I sometimes used to watch some TV as well with my family.
The most enjoyable part of my day was walking to school with my friends as I could talk about a lot of things with them and make jokes. Another thing, which I really enjoyed, was buying my favourite ice-creams during the lunch break at my school and sharing them with my friends. Finally, I also enjoyed it a lot when my mother sometimes allowed me to watch my favourite children movie before going to bed at night.
