Yan Zhen Deng
My name is Yan Zhen Deng. I’m from China. I speak Chinese.
I have a son. He is four years old. He is so cute. He is average height but he is thin. He has short black hair. He is sporty and restive but he is warm. I really love him. Every day we take a bus to school. He is so happy because he likes all the cars. Also in my house we have a lot of toy cars. When he finishes school, the first thing he does is play with his cars. One day I asked him, “Why do you like to play with cars?” He told me, “When I grow up, I want to be a driver. That is a great job.” I like this job and my son does too. It is very interesting.
Now about my life. I am a student right now. Every day I wake up at 7:00 am. And then I brush my teeth, wash my face, make up my face, and get dressed. After that I try to wake my son up. But my son is a lazy boy. He likes to sleep. So when I tell him to wake up and get ready for school, he always tells me, “I don’t want to go to school. I am so sleepy. Give me more time.” At 7:40 am we go to take a bus. Sometimes we are late and miss the bus. We will wait for ten or fifteen minutes. It is so crazy. At 8:20 am I drop off my son at school and I take the train home and eat breakfast.
After breakfast I take the N train to my school. My classmates are easy-going and friendly. Sometimes they are stubborn but funny. And my teacher is funny and kind. I am so happy studying English with my classmates and my teacher.
Oh, I forgot! Now I live in New York. It is a beautiful city. It is crowded but flourishing. I can’t say any more because I want to cook dinner for my son. That is my life. If you want to know more about my life, let me know. Bye.
