A waiter walked by after another 10 to 12 minutes of waiting and asked if he could take their order, even though the table was not in his area. The family ordered their meals and a glass of wine.

There are many effects with long school hours on my kids such as little or no time for after school activity like sports.

Then I had a light breakfast with my siblings.
I then headed off to my classes for the day. After that I would try to get a quick bite to eat if I had the time, and then go to practice from 3:00 to 5:00. Even after practices some days, I would have to stick around the locker room to do laundry until 7:00. On top of all these occurrences, I also have a job that I work around 25 hours a week. Adding all this, it doesn’t leave much time for studying or doing homework.
