I have also a bunch of plans in my daily life. From Monday to Friday I goes to work. So, I have free time only on the weekends. On Saturdays I learn English to enhance my skills especially in listening and reading. On Sundays i usually hang out with my friends. But,on these days due to the corona virus i just stay at my home because staying at home is saving life. But, I have planned to study English and also German languages to improve my competency.

Thus, every Friday I will go to Internet cafe with friends to relax, every Satuaday morning, I will play basketball, and then study program all afternoon, evening is computer game time. Sunday I will lie in, and then it will be same as Satuaday.
