Sample Answer

As I am still a student, I have a daily routine that mostly focuses on my classes and study. Except for the Sunday, I spend my days mostly adhering to this routine.
I get up early in the morning mostly at 6:30 am and take a shower. I eat my breakfast then and revise the study for that day. I reach my university at around 8:30 am and attend the classes till 3:00 pm. I eat my lunch at around 1:00 pm from the university cafeteria. I usually spend some time with my classmates after the class and return home at around 4:30 pm. I take some rest and go to nearby fields in the evening. I walk for 1 hour ad return home at 6:30 pm.

Then I take some light snacks and then start my study. I usually read till 9:00 pm and then spend some time using the computer and Internet. I usually browse net and maintain my social networking for about 1-2 hours. I eat my supper at 11:00 pm and then read for another hour. Before I go to bed I brush my teeth and read a novel. I read the novel for around 40 minutes to 1:30 hours and then fall asleep.

I have been following this routine for the last 3 years. If I do not have classes or if I have holidays, I go through a different routine which includes watching movies, playing computer games, hanging out with friends etc.

I enjoy the evening walking and my class times very much among the activities of one of my typical days.
