My name is Harvey Smith and I am a writer. I write about everything but the genre that I love is biography, and that’s why I’ll stop talking about me and I’ll start telling you about this wonderful woman called Sally Clarkson. It is a little bit complicated if we begin talking about her occupation because actually she is a mother, then she has a few other jobs; housewife, artist, model, bass guitar player, manager, and teacher of several subjects.
This is how a typical week day goes in her life, every morning she wakes up at 6:00 a.m. no matter what time she went to bed the previous night, first thing in the morning, of course, she opens her eyes then she brushes her teeth. After that she takes a cold water shower, (she loves cold water), at 6.30am and she starts preparing breakfast for her 5 kids; Alonso, Peter, Robinson, Alex, and little Sally. Also for her husband Salvatore. They love mom’s breakfasts. At 7:00 a.m. all this kids are fed.
At 7:15 .am, she surfs the internet looking for concerts for the band in which she plays the bass guitar and in which she is also the manager. She does this for about two hours on weekdays and she always finds at least one daily gig. The photographer and her assistant arrive around 9:00 a.m, and they get great pictures in only two hours and at the same time she is cooking something in the kitchen. Then when they leave, she finishes the best lunch in the world in only one hour, and then she has it with her family.
In the afternoon she goes out with her kids to any place around the city and she paints those landscapes while the kids play. She uploads the painting on internet and if she’s lucky she sells it right away. After this at 4:00 p.m, she practices with her band while some of the kids are at piano classes and the rest are doing karate. They come back home at 6:00 p.m.
In the evening she prepares exquisite dinners, although sometimes she buys something at her brother’s restaurant, specially when she has to teach at 8:00 at the university. She returns home and watches Big Bang Theory with her husband until she falls asleep and her husband carries her to their bedroom. Oh Lord, she is a Super Woman!
A pesar de que este es un texto sobre la aplicación de la tercera persona del presente, se utilizó primera persona como parte de la introducción lo cual es válido. También se dieron algunos datos generales de la persona de la cual se hablaría mas tarde que también es otra buena forma de introducción…“I´ll start telling you about this wonderful woman called Sally Clarkson…”
Al hablar de la rutina en sí, se usan frases como:
In the morning
In the afternoon
In the evening
Una frase similar a in the evening es at night pero NO debe usarse in the night , tampoco ON the morning/afternoon/evening. La preposición correcta para este caso es IN.
La preposición ON, es utilizada cuando nombramos un día de la semana. Por ejemplo:
On Monday, On Tuesday, etc.
Para nombrar la hora se utiliza la preposición AT, Ejemplo: at 6:00 a.m.
Cuando hablamos de los que otra persona hace debemos tomar en consideración las reglas para la conjugación de verbos en tercera persona. Generalmente basta con agregarle una –S al verbo “work”
Por ejemplo: “She works.”
También existen ciertas reglas para otros casos. Si el verbo termina en –ch, -sh, -x, -o se agrega es al final.
Por wjemplo: “She brushes her teeth.”, “She does this for about two hours.”
Si el verbo termina en consonante más -y se cambia la -y por -ies.
Por ejemplo: “She studies.”
