Ameena Adel | 622 comments Hi

Since where all from different places, live different lives and are different people from different cultures, traditions...
Here each and everyone of us will have the opportunity to see what its like to live the lifestyle of someone else.

So here you can talk about what you can and cant do (house rules)
your usual day at school
what you do when you come back from school
how your neighborhood, house or room looks like
... and anything that comes to your mind

anything which will get other people interested in what life is like for other people

Carolyn F. Me, I'm a secretary in a law office which is EXTREMELY exciting (not really). I'm married with a very sweet 12 year old daughter. I live in a bedroom community of Sacramento, California, in an older neighborhood. We have two wonderful dogs, and my husband's okay too.

Ginny I wake up @ 6:30ish; another fun-filled day is about to start! I wake up my 15yr old and my 13 yr old to get ready for school. I drive them the 20 min. to a small school, the same one I graduated from. Because i'm a freelance interpreter for the deaf, I may or may not have an interpreting assignment for the day. If I don't, I'm doing laundry, cleaning the house, taking care of our cat (Luna the Tuna0 and our dog(Abby May). During this, I will get phone calls from different places if they need an interpreter, which I try to accomodate. If I am intepreting, I get into my little red car and drive (usually anywhere from 40min -3 hrs away) to meet with the hearing and the deaf people in need of my services. Sometimes it is very interesting, sometimes hard,but most of the time I leave feeling like I gave something that not many people can give. I pick up my children from school, we come home, do homework, read, watch a movie, walk our dog. They chat with their friends,try not to fight with each other because it makes me sad(and they know if it gets real bad, I will send them outside so I don't have to be a party to it!)We go to bed about 11 to get up and do the whole thing again.

AAAlien | 431 comments I wake up, it takes me like an hour to get ready, sometimes more (i'm working on that x_x), take a bus or a cab to work, survive, come home, eat, and in the afternoon STUDY for the university exam, read, play videogames, be on the pc, etc etc, then sleep, and again...
