New Semester, New morning routine
What is your routine in the morning? Let’s see how DPUIC students prepare themselves before class.
Finally, I got used to the schedule of all my courses after the semester started 2 weeks ago. I think I have been able to manage them throughout the week pretty well so far. On the day that I have a 9 o’clock class, I wake up at 5 because the traffic in my area has always been hectic in the morning and I prefer to avoid that frustration on the road. As I have been dealing with sleeping disorders such as insomnia and sleep paralysis for many years, waking up at 5 is not always easy. I usually get about 3 hours or less of sleep. After I wake up, me and mother go to the kitchen and prepare her lunch meal and my father a breakfast. I catch a ride with my mother and we leave the house a little bit before half past 6. She usually drops me off around soi Sammakki at 7 o’clock. Then from there, I take a taxi all the way to my university. When I arrive at DPUIC building at half past 7, I rest on a comfy seat at the cafe to review notes and re-check my assignments. Sometimes I help explain some of the assignments to my classmates, and if I have a time to spare, I read some news. Besides finishing my works on time, be on time for classes are important for me as well. On days that I do not have early class, I also follow the routine similarly. By doing this with discipline, it has helped and polished me bit by bit to become a better and responsible person.

I have not followed the same routine every morning. Sometimes I get up early, but sometimes I get up late. I usually wake up at 7 o’clock and go out of my house at 8 o’clock in the morning so that I can arrive at school on time. I do not do exercise every morning after I get up. I exercise every evening, because I usually take a shower before I go to sleep. I listen to the light music after I get up, because light music can make me feel relaxed in the morning. After I brush my teeth and wash my face, I put on school uniform and get ready for school. Before I go out, I always drink a cup of hot water. This habit makes me feel good and keep me healthy. Next, I buy breakfast and a bottle of chocolate milk. Finally, I walk to school. This simple routine makes me feel relaxed.

I have followed the same routine in the morning since I started attending college. I get up at 8:00 clock every morning. I wash my face and brush my teeth. Then I go to the 7-11 store downstairs for breakfast. I walk to the university. However, sometimes when I get up late, I take a motorcycle to the university. After my morning class, I have lunch at the canteen and rest in the library. When I finish all courses, I go home, have dinner, and enjoy my free time in the evening.
I usually get up at 5 o’clock. I brush my teeth and wash my face. I always go to market with my parents. Next, I take a nap while we are going to my restaurant by my car. My mother has cooked for the family for twenty years. I usually prepare some vegetables for her before I go to the university. I have breakfast about 7.30am. After that I have a shower, put on my make-up and get dressed. I pack my bag with my textbooks and leave my restaurant. I take a taxi to go to DPU international college and walk to classroom. My class starts at 10.30am and ends at 12.00pm. I have lunch around 12 o’clock. I like to eat rice or spaghetti at the canteen and I walk back to classroom. My next class starts at 1.30pm or 3pm and ends at 4.30pm. I have dinner around 6pm. I often go to library with my friend and go back home around 8pm with my parents. I go to bed after do my homework and improve my English on YouTube and then I go on Facebook, Line or listen to music until about 11pm.
This is my daily routine, on school day. I wake up at 7:00 am and I always press the snooze button on my alarm clock five times every morning. I take a shower, get my uniform, comb my hair, brush my teeth and put make-up on. I often skip breakfast because I hurry up to drive to the university. I usually arrive at the university at 8 am every day. After I finish all classes, I go back home to have dinner with my family at 7.30 pm. We always eat together. After that, I chill out on sofa and watch my favorite programs on television. I usually do homework while watching television. Then I take a shower and set alarm to wake me up in the morning. What I mention before is to sum up my daily routine.
I always get up at 8.00 o’clock. Then, I take a shower, brush my teeth and get dressed. At 8.40, I start to go to school. My class starts at 9.00 o’clock and finishes at 12.00 o’clock. In the afternoon, I usually have noodles and meat for lunch in the canteen with my friends. And I study at 1.30 pm and finish at 4.30 pm. After that, I go back to my dorm at 5.00 pm. In the evening, I have dinner and talk with my friends. After that, I do my homework, listen to music and read cartoon books. At 11.30 pm. I brush my teeth and go to bed.
I have made a routine since I was in high school. Everyday morning before go to school, I must follow these steps.
Usually I wake up at 07:00. The first thing I do is not to go to brush my teeth, but to have a cup of lukewarm water. Getting up such early makes me feel dizzy, so lukewarm water makes me feel better. And then I go brushing my teeth. Next, I usually do make-up and have breakfast at the same time, because this makes the process shorter. Then I dress up myself. I do make-up before dress up because I had an experience that the make-up product fell on my clothes and got mess, so I decided to do make-up first. Finally, I straighten my hair. And then I am ready to go to school. Since my high school was very close to my home, I think it took about 15 to 20 minutes from home to school, so I walked to school every day. But now, university is 9 km far from my home. I have to go by car. Traffic jam in Thailand makes me stressed and irritated.

Since I arrived in Thailand, I have started a new morning routine in daily life. On my schedule there are three days which I have morning classes. And these days include Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. So I have to get up at 8:00 AM during these days. Then I go to the bathroom and take a shower with some energetic music. The refreshing water and music revives me completely. Next, I walk in front of the closet and get out the uniform which I should wear in class. Then I get dressed. After that I get going to college with my bag. When I walk on the way to school, I usually drop by a Seven-eleven. Finally, I buy some sandwiches as my breakfast from the Seven-eleven. I have a new schedule in new surroundings now. I need to have a new routine. And I think it is good.

When I wake up, I usually play with my pet if it is there and not in my girlfriend place. After that, I take shower and brush my teeth. Now I get ready for my class. I usually have one class in the morning. So, after it I stay there to read papers related to my courses or go with my friend to his house to play Xbox 360.
In every morning, I have followed almost the same routine since I started attending college at DPUIC. I can ready for school in thirty minutes each morning. First, my alarm clock is ringing at 7:50 A.M and I get up at 8 o’clock every weekdays morning. Then, I take a shower about ten minutes, and I spend another fifteen minutes on getting dressed in the DPU’s uniform. After that I check my schedule and put today’s subject folders in the bag. Next, I leave my room around 8:40 A.M and take five to seven minutes for walk. While I am walking to university, I’m listening to my favorite music to refresh my mood. It makes me feel good to start my day. When I arrive at the back gate of university, I go to buy a sandwich and a bottle of water for breakfast. Sometimes I have breakfast just before the class starts, or right after I finish the first class in the morning. This is how I finish my morning routine and go to university every weekday.
I follow the same routine in the morning when I begin to study at University. I have the complete steps to do each day so that I arrive to college on time and do the work that I can. First when I wake up, I exercise every morning before I take a shower. I do 3 sets of sit ups and push-ups for 15 minutes. After I finish exercising, I take a shower. Then I get dressed and I have a breakfast. Finally, my father comes and takes me to go to the college. After I finish my class, I go back home. I take a shower and have dinner. If I don’t have homework, I spend my happy moment in playing a game, surfing the internet or watching the movie. Sometimes I review the lessons and improve my English on Youtube or in engvid.com. These are good ways to improve my English and my grades. And then I go to bed. I intend to follow the same routine because it makes a good and healthy student.
Firstly, I always get up at 06.00 o’clock morning. I can see the sun is shining, and those birds are singing up on the trees with fresh air and nice cloud. I prepare my duvet, pillows, blanket, bolsters and sheet again. Secondly, I exercise at the backyard of my house with my dogs. We are running around at my mother’s flowers garden. My dogs and I are very friendly and lovely. Thirdly, I go to take a shower in my cleanly bathroom and turn on the music of Jimmy. I am happy and relax when I am listening to music every morning. After that I have a cup of milk and breads with strawberry jam for my breakfast.Then I wear my perfect uniform and go to my college by a car with my friends. My friends and I are always be on time for class, because we love to study and pay attention to our lessons as much as we can. My class finish at 04.30-05.30 o’clock every day, then I go back to my house and do some respect to my family as Thai culture does. After that, I go to change my uniform to a smart sportswear then go to play football with my friends at the football field in the university. After I finish playing football every evening, I usually go to the market to buy some food for my dogs and dinner for myself. Lastly, I go to bed at 08.00 PM. every night. Every time while I am on my bed, I always read some of my interesting books and note some new experiences that happened on that day. When I am on the bed, I feel sleepy because outside of my window is dark. Moreover, I can see many stars in the sky. Sometimes if I’m lucky I will see the northern stars. I turn on my classic lamps and have a nice dream.
