My Day

Hi, my name is Joshua. I am a financial adviser. Yesterday I had a very busy day. I woke up at half past six. Waking up was so hard that I needed to wash my face with cold water to open my eyes. Then I went to the kitchen and had a cup of coffee and toast for breakfast. I brushed my teeth, took the trash out, ironed my clothes and finally I got dressed and left home around seven o’clock. I got on the bus at half past seven to downtown. I arrived at work at ten to eight. I needed to finish up six reports before noon. At twelve o'clock I had half an hour lunch with my colleagues. After lunch we had a meeting until two o’clock. Then I visited one of my clients at three o’clock to talk about his financial plans. I came back to work at around four o'clock and prepared three more reports. Finally at six I was able to leave my office and I was exhausted by the time I got home.

The Moon

The Moon is the satellite of the Earth. It is about the quarter size of the Earth. It goes around the Earth approximately in one month. It is about 384,000 kilometers away from the Earth. There is no air or atmosphere around it, so there is no life on the Moon. It has about 13 and a half days daylight and 13 and a half nights of darkness. Temperatures on the Moon is 120 °C during the lunar day and -150 °C during the lunar night. Because there is no air or atmosphere, there is also no sound as the sound waves travel through the air. So, The Moon is very silent.
