We did all the speaking together, the bold are the words I helped with. 

Today I woke up at 7 AM in my bedroom and then I ate breakfast at 8 AM. I went to work at 8:30 AM by train / metro / subway for 30 minutes. I arrived at 9 AM, and I checked my email. If there is an email from someone, I replied to them. My boss gave me a lot of campaigns to do for today. First, I look at the brief and then I plan the campaign by myself. Maybe I ate at 3 PM because I used lunch time to go to the gym to work out.
