大家问:What did you do all day?(你一整天都在做什么呢?)

老师答:I took the MRT to work. In the morning, I had a meeting to discuss some videos and articles. During lunchtime, I went to eat McDonald’s and then took a nap afterwards. In the afternoon, I started working on my column. I had to rewrite it many times just to make sure it was inspiring and interesting. After work, I went home and did some chores. It was a tiring but challenging day!
