EN – Telling someone about your day

Text 1:

Today was a great day! I woke up early and went for a jog around the neighbourhood. It was a beautiful, sunny morning and I felt so energised and happy. Afterwards, I went to the grocery store and picked up some food for the week. It was nice to get out and get some fresh air. In the evening, I went to the gym and worked out for a bit. I was really getting into my routine, and it felt great. I left when I was tired and I headed home to cook up a delicious dinner. I love cooking and it always relaxes me. I spent the rest of the evening catching up on some reading and watching some TV. All in all, it was a really productive and enjoyable day! 

Text 2:

Hey there! Today has been a pretty hectic day for me. I had to wake up early and get ready for work. I had a few meetings in the morning and then I had to rush to a lunch appointment with a prospective client. After that, I had a few more meetings at the office and I had to finish some paperwork. I spent the rest of the day working on a project that I had been putting off for a while. I managed to wrap it up just before the end of the day so I was pretty relieved. Unfortunately, I completely forgot that I had to meet with a friend for dinner and he was very upset when he called me and I told him I was watching Netflix.
