antonella

My name is Antonella. I was born in 1992, on the 3rd of June. I was born in Conversano.
Now, I’m a student and I’m fourteen. I’m tall and slim and I take a size 37 shoe. I’m rather shy, but I become very talkative when I meet people very well. I’m serious and quiet, but also insecure. In my family there are four people. My father is a technician at Telecom. He was born in Monopoli on the 9th of April in 1950. My mother is a teacher at primary school. She was born in Monopoli on the 21th of September in 1959. I have got a brother, his name is Paolo and he’s thirteen years old. He was born on the 1st of July in 1993, in Conversano. Paolo is a student and he goes to “Galileo Galilei” junior school. My parents are Italian. They are good natured, serious, quiet and friendly. My mother is more talkative than my father. I adore my parents, because they are the best in the world. I live in Monopoli with my family.
When I was a baby I was always very happy. Every morning I went with my mother to my grandparents’ house, then my mother went to work and I stayed with my grandparents during the morning. When I was three I started to attend a school. My first school was called “Giovanni XXIII” nursery school. I finished this school when I was five. After I attended “Giovanni Modugno” primary school. I started at this school at the age of six and when I was ten I left it.

I started at “Galileo Galilei” junior school at the age of eleven. Last year I finished there and I changed school. I had to pass an exam in June and I attend “Galileo Galilei” high school, now. I’m in 1st Year. I go to school from Monday to Saturday. Lessons start at eight o’clock and finish at a quarter to twelve or twenty to one. I like this school, but homework is sometimes too hard and I’m very tired in the evening, because I spend all my afternoon doing homework. The teachers are very excellent and I understand what that explain. This school is fantastic, it has a very good organization. I adore all subjects that I study and I don’t have a favourite subject, in fact I choose this school, because I like human subjects and foreign languages.
I usually help at home. In the winter, during the week, I can’t help my mother with housework, because I study. While at the weekend, especially on Sunday I sometimes iron clothes and I broom. Everyday I rarely hang clothes, but I help mum to do the washing up, but I often do it, in summer. I always lay table for lunch and dinner and I and my brother cook meals, when we don’t go to school. I often go to the supermarket with my family. All these works help me, because relax me, when I’ m nervous, so I like helping my mother with housework. I always clean and tidy my room, because I hate the mess, I prefer everything in order and my mum agrees with me.
At the moment I don’t practice any sport, but I have a lot of interests and hobbies. I went to dance when I was four, after some lessons I left this sport, because I fell ill every time I went out to the gym. I was sad, because I loved dancing, but I resigned. After some years, at the age of eleven, I went to the swimming pool and I passed the exam of the first level, after I attended a swimming course, but I left swimming, too; because I had a lot of homework. I like reading books, every kind of books and I read to relax, especially in the summer. I enjoy playing volleyball, in fact I play it at school or with my friends, but I’m not very good. I don’t mind listening music, but I prefer singing. At the moment I like dancing with my cousin, when we can meet, because she and I must do homework, every day. At home I sometimes play volleyball with my brother, too. In the summer I go with my brother and my cousin to the sea and then we swim and play on the beach. I loved writing and tell stories, too and I sometimes write something at the computer or I invent some stories and I tell them to my cousins.
