Are you more active in the morning or in the evening?


(Answer 1) 


I believe I’m more active in the morning. That is simply because I’m a morning person. I can work efficiently during the day since I’m more energized. I once worked on a graveyard shift and I noticed that I wasn’t as effective as during the day. Since then, I decided to choose a job that’s 9-5. 


(Answer 2)


Obviously, as I’m a night owl (a person who is habitually active at night), I’m very active in the evening or during the night. Ever since I started working, I usually report to work either in the afternoon or in the evening. I dunno but I can focus on working more during a graveyard shift, that’s when everyone is sleeping. I think that’s because the ambiance (atmosphere) is calming. 


What do you usually do in the evening?


(Answer 1) 


Aside from the fact that I sleep, I actually meditate before hitting the hay (going to bed).  Meditating helps me think clearly and at the same time improves my physical being. Actually, I’ve been doing this since last year and I couldn’t be happier (be very happy)


(Answer 2)


Well, nothing special, I’ve been doing what common people are doing during the night, and that’s watching a movie or TV series. This is my way of relieving stress after working for hours in the office. This has been my habit since I started working. 


What did you enjoy doing in the evening when you were little? 


(Answer 1) 


Well, I enjoyed playing Nintendo games. I had fun playing Super Mario and my brother and I usually got into a fight (to engage in a verbal or physical altercation) because I didn’t like giving him a chance to play with me. I was kinda selfish back then. Remembering those days makes me miss my childhood. 


(Answer 2)


I didn’t do a lot of activities at night when I was a kid except for watching my favorite cartoon after doing my homework. I spent an hour watching TV since my parents allowed me to do so as long as I completed my homework. So, it was my way of making myself relaxed after a long day at school.



Are there any differences between what you do in the evening now and what you did in the past?


(Answer 1) 


Yes! Compared to last year, I’m now more relaxed. Last year, I was completely busy even during the night because I was working on a very important project, as a result, I needed to give up exercising and I couldn’t do one of my hobbies which is watching movies or TV series. Currently, I can do all those things and meditation has been added. 


(Answer 2)


Of course! Since I was a student back then, most of my time during the night was spent studying or doing some school projects. However, these days, I have more time to relax at night. I can go to the park at night and jog or I can stay at home and be a couch potato (an inactive person) before hitting the sack (going to bed)
