Do you often get up early in the morning?


(Answer 1)


Not at all, as I’m not a morning person. I usually get up at 12 noon since my job requires me to work until the wee hours. I know that’s tiring for some people but I get used to it. Maybe someday, I might become an early bird if I change my job.

(Answer 2)


Yes, I love getting up before everyone wakes up because I can be productive. I can do house chores without any distractions such as preparing breakfast, doing the laundry, cleaning the backyard, and many more. Doing those things early makes me feel so fulfilled, I’m forever grateful to my mom for teaching me the importance of getting up before sunrise.




Morning person [noun] – a person who  likes the early part of the day

Wee hours [noun] – the early hours of the morning; between 12 o’clock at night and the time when the sun rises

Distraction [noun] – something that takes your attention away


What do you usually do when you get up early?


(Answer 1) 


As I said, I don’t get up early since I started working, however, if it’s my day off, especially on my second day off, I usually get up at 9 in the morning, which for me is already early. So, what I normally do is prepare my breakfast and do some exercise on our balcony. 


(Answer 2)


As I’ve said a while ago, I just do all kinds of housework. I enjoy doing house chores early in the morning since no one interrupts me, as a result, I can finish them very easily. That’s also my way of exercising. 



Balcony [noun] – a platform that projects from the wall of a building and is enclosed by a railing 

Interrupt [verb] – to stop the continuous progress of something 


Do you get up early on weekends?


(Answer 1)


Not always, it depends on my physical condition and if I have something important to do. I mean, if I feel like I want to get up early, then I get up without a second thought and if I have an appointment or an important task to finish, I have to get out of bed earlier than usual. 


(Answer 2)


Never, it’s because the weekends are my days off. I only get up early on weekdays. Saturdays and Sundays are the only days where I allow myself to be lazy. I just love to stay in bed until nine o’clock on weekends.




Without a second thought [idiom] – acting immediately without stopping to think

Stay in bed [phrase] – to not get out of bed and remain lying on the bed


Which morning do you like best in a week?


(Answer 1)


I love all Sunday mornings, I just enjoy the atmosphere, like hearing the church bells from our house,  smelling the aroma of the chocolate drink prepared by my mom, and more importantly, it’s the only morning where all members of our family eat together. I love the ambiance, no wonder, some musicians create songs about Sunday morning, I think they also feel what I feel every Sunday morning.


(Answer 2)

For me, it’s Friday morning because it’s the last day of the week where I have to get up early and do all the tasks that I have to do. I just feel so motivated on that day more than the other days of the week. Although I also like the mornings of weekends, still Friday morning is my favorite. 




Aroma [noun] – a strong pleasant smell

Ambiance [noun] – the character and atmosphere of a place 

No wonder [phrase] – it’s not surprising
