Stop thinking

As soon as I wake up, I think to myself, “I really want to go back to sleep.” I would’ve most likely stayed up late the night before.

Time to plan

I think about what I should do in the day. I don’t want to waste the day, so I have to think of fun activities do to. I have to make sure I make the most of the day, and that I have no regrets at the end of it.

School days

I think, “Ah! I need to go to school again!” I actually don’t hate going to school, I just hate having to wake up so early for it because I always feel like I don’t get enough sleep. When I wake up early in the morning, my whole day becomes a disaster.

School or breakfast

There are five school days in a week, and on those five days, the first thought I have in the morning is of the end of the day when I can sleep again. But on the two days of the week when I don’t have school, I think about how good my breakfast will be.

You got your wish

As soon as I open my eyes, I wonder whether my response will get into the Top 10 page in Young Post, and what the next topic will be. The idea of possibly having my answer chosen keeps me excited throughout the week. I hope I will be in the Top 10 this week!

Man's best friend

I think about my dog. When I wake up, it comes into my bedroom and begs for cuddles. And when I’m having my breakfast, it barks at me for food. It’s very hard not to think about my dog when this happens every morning.

Video time

YouTube. After waking up, I watch YouTube before doing anything else. It’s a habit. There are so many different, interesting videos to watch, and I am on YouTube every day.

Good teacher

My science teacher is the first thing – well, person – I think about every morning. She is also my class teacher. She sparked my interest in science and now I love the subject. She is always willing to answer my questions. Her teaching methods are brilliant and she cares a lot about her students. Thinking about her energises me for the day ahead.

Most important meal (and thought) of the day

Breakfast. I think this is the most important part of the day. We must have a healthy and filling meal in the morning to fuel us through the long day ahead. I need the energy to study and focus in class, and can’t leave my house without having breakfast.

Sweet dreams and nightmares

I think about the dream I had the night before. If I dreamed about getting a five-star weapon in a game, I will check to see if it really happened or if it was just a dream. If I dreamed of a zombie attack, I feel relieved that everything is all right in the real world.
