What is teenager’s life like in UK?

Sunday was a very busy day for shops and malls until a couple of years prior shops were not allowed to open on a Sunday. Sundays today are getting to be noticeably similar to some other day other week with shops open. A few families will now invest their energy shopping as opposed to going to chapel or they will consolidate the two exercises. UK is turning into a far less Christian nation with less individuals frequently going to Church. Many Christian’s trust that Sunday ought to be kept unique, as a period given to revering God. They think it is vital for Christians to get together, tune in to readings from the Bible and observe Holy Communion. Others trust that it is imperative that families have sufficient energy to be as one. (The shopping hours on a Sunday are not exactly on some other day of the week.)Teenagers in England do much the same as kids in other European countries or America do. They enjoy texting and chatting with friends on their mobiles, listening to the latest music on their MP3 players, shopping for the latest fashions, hanging out with their mates or just watching movies at the movie house (cinema) or on the television. In their free time they swim, go into town, text their mates, do household stuff with their mum and dad, go on the internet, watch TV and play on their PlayStation and Game gear! They listen to music all the time! They have a CD player and an mp3. In UK, most youths listen to pop, punk, house, garage, rock and R&B. (such as Justin Timberlake, Busted, JLo, McFly, Xtina, Pink, Britney, Beyonce and Mis-teeq)

Five Days of Teenager’s life during a School Holiday

With the reference of one teenager’s life that is living in UK, you can easily understand the facts about the life in UK. So I give you one example in this article for your better understanding.

1st Day

One teenager had an OK day of first holiday. He got up at 12 mid -day, ate crisp and cookie in breakfast. His mom went out to Tesco which is a supermarket during the afternoon. From there his mum bought food for lunch. He was not on his own for too long though. He checked his mobile phone during lunch – one of his friends texted him early in the morning and he had only just noticed it! He sent back a reply and apologized for replying not sooner. After lunch he sat around watching telly which is slang for television and finishing his English, German, Science and History homework. Had dinner at about 7:30, he had a microwave able for pizza and crinkle chips making. He went upstairs, finished off his English homework, he listened to Dido and Avril Lavigne for a while, came back downstairs at about 8:15, and came onto the internet.

2nd day

He woke up at 10 o clock then he went into town with his mom. Afterwards, his mom phoned her mate and her daughter (his mate) to ask if they could come round, as they had not seen each other for months! They stayed at their friend’s house for 1 hour and 30 mints – during that time he and his class mate browsed the internet.  After this they went to Tesco to get their dinner which is microwave Pakistani meal for his family.

Third Day

He woke up at 10 am. That day was Sunday. He bought chips and fish for lunch and he bought some new funky Crayola spider pens. He popped into to Sainsbury on his way back home. Ever since then, he have been surfing the internet, eating dinner (mash, sausages, beans) and watching a TV.

Fourth Day

His mom went to work today, he did some more homework and in the afternoon he surfed the internet. His mom left his lunch out before she went. He also prayed at about 1:30 pm. Now watching channel FIVE.  He was afraid that is all he has done today.

Last Day

He woke up at 2pm, and so did his mom. They went to Tesco (super market) at 3:30pm where mom kept meeting her friends, and they chatted for 2 hours! When they got home, it was already time for dinner (sausage, chips and egg). Afterwards, he did more homework until 2am.
