You spent all day struggling with your difficult tasks. After hard work, you hung out with your clients for late dinner. Time flew, and it just passed midnight by the time you got home.
Dragged with an exhausted body and mind, you said to your dear family, "I'm going to bed. Good night."
 你花了一整天和工作交戰:加班,和客戶應酬。回到家的時候剛過子夜。 托著疲累的身子,於是你和親愛的家人說 「我想睡覺了,晚安」 。
 
You prepared for the final exam the next day, and you kept studying until the school library was closed. You went back to your house, throwing yourself into the couch and thinking "It's time to sleep".
