My name is Ed. I’m 23 years old and I live in Havana, Cuba. From Monday to Friday my daily routine at the university is always the same. I always get to school on time. I’m usually there by 7.45 because classes start at 8 and I’m never late. In the afternoon, I often go to the library or to the computer lab to study. Sometimes, I practice sports. I rarely stay after 5. After college, I go home. I usually talk to my friends and play soccer. Then, take a shower and have dinner with my family. In the evening, I often watch sports on TV. I like soccer but baseball is my favorite. I also love to listen to music, especially to relax when I go to bed after a busy day.
