What about you? Are you happiest in the morning or at night? Or maybe in the afternoon?I consider myself an evening person I think.I prefer the nights than the early mornings.In the most of the days I like to wake up late.

Hi everyone !
My favourite times of the day are in the morning and in the evening. I love morning because in this part of the day I stay at my computer and listen to your very interesting podcasts and different English materials on the site with a cup of very tasty and nice smelling coffee and a piece of dark chocolate. I also like a lot the evening because after a very tiring day, I watch my favourite serials or films on a Korean site. This way I can relax...
All the best !

I'd rather wake up early but I stay along for study and houseworks. So I often wake up at 12:00 p.m It's too late but actually when I wake up before, I feel lazy and lethargic.
I'd rather spend a little time on the phone before bed, about half an hour.

My favorite part of the day is when i arrive at home after work, because i can play whith my baby and kiss my wife. After a hard day is so
pleasurable be with loved ones.

My favorite part of the day is the morning. When you wake up early at 6 or 7 o’clock that’s nice to look at how the Sun is arising, it’s first rays. My feel mood is the best this part and I start doing a bit of physical exercises outside breathing fresh air which is usually the clearest this part of the day.

What dose that’s mean?
‘politics of bread and circuses’

Hello Arwa_amq

The 'politics of bread and circuses' describes policies or actions that satisfy the most urgent needs of people ('bread' meaning food, and 'circuses' meaning entertainment), but which don't really help the people for the longer term.

It's actually a phrase that comes from Latin and the time of the Roman Empire. I think Guisouzarego's idea is that football is only important as entertainment and has little value beyond that.

Does that make sense?

All the best

Generally I don't like mornings I hate to wake up at 6 oclock every morning and get to work as result I am always tired at work .On the other hand, I enjoy evenings and nights I go to dojo 3 days after work and I like that, then I go home and watch TV and go to bed.
But I have 2 favorite days which is called weekend in my country: Thursday and Friday. I enjoy every part of these 2 days.

I could not say what my favorite time of the day is. I like to sleep, but then the morning is lost. To work, I prefer to get up early. In the afternoon you can also do many activities. At night, relax and watch a good movie, or a good book, is a fantastic plan. Every moment of the day can be good.

I feel calm and relax in the short time before sleeping every night ,it is my favorite moment in one day. Because it is always quiet. I can think something important or reading books interesting.I have no time to do these things in the daytime.It is a fantastic time but I know this behavior isn’t healthy, so I am going to sleep more early as soon as possible.
