I can't write a lot now! Thursday are really busy for me. At 8:20 I have math - ugh! Everyone says it will be useful some day, but I'm not certain. Then at 9:40 I have science. I's difficult, but interesting. At 10:20 I have history. Boring! But at least I have P.E. to look forward to at 11:00. P.E. is easy and fun. We have lunch from 12:20 to 1:00. The first subject after lunch is art. It's easy. And I like my art teacher, Mr. Sarmento. He's such fun. My classes finish at 2:20 but after that I have gymnastics club for two hours. This is really challenging! Our teacher is very strict and we usually get very tired. And after gymnastics I go to my music club. Music is so cool, so that's something else to look forward to.
