It is past 2am in the morning, I am still here at Mylot. Yes, it is very late, I am burning the midnight oil today because I had to help my teen to find answers to past year questions for her degree exam. She is working full-time, studying part-time for her degree course. SO, I had to help her out in order for her to take a rest after work. Otherwise she will stress out. I don't want her to induce depression state. I don't mind burning the oil for her sake. How often do you burn the midnight oil?

Lately I have been very good and am in bed by midnight. I prefer to get enough sleep during the night. It's good for me.

I did that often when one of my kids needed help with maths. He used to laugh at me thinking mom didn't know anything, but then for year 12 maths, the extremely hard problems, he had no choice but asked mom to help. I was very pleased that I could still do them.

@peachpurple Maths is simple and straightforward. I wish life could be like maths! (That would save us lots of trouble then!)

It's a long time that I do not stay up very late to complete a work or a project. When I was young and I had exams I used to burn the midnight oil.

I only play Midnight Oil. Those that know the Australian rock group will know what I mean.

I rarely burn the midnight oil. In college, I did burn the midnight oil, though.

At least once a week I will get caught up in reading and end up burning the midnight oil but not least night.

I last burned the mid night oil when I was a student. Now its only for parties that I stay awake at night. Or maybe sometimes when I am watching an interesting movie on television.

I try not to burn the midnight oil too often but some nights it can't be helped. Hope your daughter does well with her exam

Probably a few weeks ago, but not that late. I had to finish a writing assignment due the next day.
