Do you like the morning or evening?
I am a morning person as I often get to enjoy the feeling of sunshine on my skin. Because everyone is busy getting ready for the day, the environment is quieter than in the evening or at night. The only sound you can hear is the wind chirping. When it has rained the night before, you can often smell the dirt and trees in the air, which gives you a nice feeling.
What do you usually do in the evening?
Normally, I watch TV, play some Cricket and spend time with my family in the evening hours. Sometimes, I read a self-help book when I lack motivation.
What did you do in the evening when you were little? Why?
As a child, all I wanted to do was go outside and play with my friends because the morning and afternoon were consumed by school and school-related activities. During vacations, I used to play a lot of video games as well.
Are there any differences between what you do in the evening now and what you did in the past?
Yes, as I already stated, evening time in my childhood was synonymous with friends; currently, I prefer to spend my nights with myself, my family, and occasionally with friends.
