work until 7:00. I walk to work. It takes about one hour. I know that's a pretty
long walk, but it's my daily exercise. I usually from 8:00 to 7:00,
but often I have to work . I take the bus home and I study Chinese
on the bus. No one interrupts me. I usually around 9:00. Then I
have dinner, and afterwards I check e-mail from friends and usually watch a bit
of TV. I always at about 11:00. I need my beauty sleep.

After work I drive to the health club. I for an hour or so, and then I
