A Day in the Life of a Vietnamese Student


My brother and I watch some television before going to sleep.

Similarities and Differences

Despite the time zone difference and miles between us, we're both just normal kids. We both go to school, have a nice family, and get to eat our meals. I go to school for a full day though, while he does not. Neither of us walk to our schools, we both gets rides. We both go to bed around the same time, and both wake up within in hour apart. In the end, we're both just normal kids.

Similarities and Differences

Bui and I are both students and we both live a normal life, for the most part. Bui only goes to school for a half day though, but he does get a ride instead of walking, just like I do. He practices piano and drawing, despite my lack of talent in piano, I do enjoy practicing to draw. We both go sleep and wake up around the same timings as well. Despite the time zones and miles between us, we are both more similar, yet diverse, than I would have guessed.
