Do you think your life is difficult? Belinda Brown says her mother doesn’t understand the stress of her daily routine. She is a student and also she works as a zoo keeper at weekends. “She thinks my life is easy”, says Belinda. “She has no idea!”
“I wake up at half past six on weekdays. I have a shower and get dressed. I have my breakfast and I go to school at half past seven. I have eight lessons every day, with only 40 minutes break for lunch.”
“After school, I usually go home and study. I rarely meet my friends in the evenings on school days.
I always have homework to do.”
“Life is bad at the weekends. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, I always go to extra classes and in the afternoons I work part time at the zoo. There are lions, tigers, jaguars, leopards, and pumas in Big Cat Country. It is the name of the area that I am working at. It is tiring, but very enjoyable to work at the zoo.”
“I don’t have enough time to be with my friends and I don’t have time to relax. I sometimes feel that my life is very difficult.”
