Questions and Answers

1. Do you often stay up late?

Sample 1: Yeah, sort of. I’m a typical night bird. And you know, just force of habit. It happens if the deadline’s coming up on weekdays. And the thing is, when it’s been the daily routine, it’s gonna be really hard for me to sleep early on my days off.

Sample 2: No,I don’t. I’m not a night person. I usually go to bed early and get up early to keep a healthy lifestyle. For me, working or studying after mid-night can’t make me highly efficiently.

Sample 3: Usually, I would go to bed before twelve o’clock, and I fall asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow, but on Friday night, I would stay up into the early hours to binge-watch some TV series.

2. Did you stay up late when you were a kid?

Sample 1: Well I’m not so sure about that coz it’s really a long time ago. I guess, I kept early hours when I was a little. After all, back then I wasn’t overwhelmed by the work or had to burn the midnight oil on weekdays.

Sample 2: Hardly ever, because when I was a kid, I have an awful lot of me-time during the day, so I don’t have to sacrifice my sleep time to do something more important. I was totally an early bird.

3. What do you do when you stay up late?

Sample 1: Sometimes I have a lot of work to catch up on, like the prep work for presentation or going over the notes for the coming exam. By the way, on New Year’s Eve, I usually watch the Spring Festival Gala with my family members. It’s a kind of tradition in China, you know, to say farewell to the old and welcome the new.

4. What does it feel like the next morning if you stay up late?

If i continue the pattern, I mean, staying up late for more than 3 days, I probably feel sleepy the next day and just wanna have some caffeine to cheer me up. The interesting thing is, if I fust stay up late once in a while, you know, to prepare something important for the exam day or something like that, I’m gonna in high spirits the next morning and even excel myself.
