A sneak peek into a typical teenager’s day in Tunisia

My daily routine is not very special. Being a student in a high school not-so-far from home, I wake up at 6.30 AM and have my breakfast. It is usually some basisa and milk (basisa is a Tunisian traditional food) or, if I am in a hurry, I would stick to a sandwich that I would eat on my way. It takes around half an hour to get to my high school, since it’s in the capital, and I get to spend the whole day there, eating lunch either in the high school’s restaurant or buying something from a nearby restaurant, when we don’t have any food in the school.

My best part of the day is the night and from 2.00 PM to 3.59 PM. These are my “productive hours”, even though there is nothing special about them. Maybe I like nighttime and these two hours since usually people sleep during them so nobody would disturb me.

Lastly, when it comes to my extra-curricular activity, I am, obviously, a Local Correspondent at the Student’s Mail (you can join us by contacting the page!), a journalist in LPBT Press Club (LPBT referring to Lycée Pilote Bourguiba Tunis, my high school), a free member in LPBT Speech Club and a translator for TED! Apart of joining these clubs, I like writing, reading, and computing.
