    After and before .

    Is this sentence syntactically correct with "after" and "before" used in one sentence, like this:

    After
    getting showered and dressed I have some breakfast before I catch the bus to college.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: After and before .

    It may be better to replace 'before' with 'then'.

    Not a teacher.

    No, it wouldn't. It's fine as is.

    I might change 'before I catch the bus' to 'before catching the bus'.
