6:00pm - 6.30pm (Forgot to post it.)

What I did:
I read up on what passive voice and active voice was about. http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/active-voice-versus-passive-voice

What I learned: 
Active voice is a sentence whereby the subject is doing an action. Whereas for passive voice, the target of the action gets promoted to the subject position. 

Examples:
Active: Harry ate six shrimps at dinner.
Passive: At dinner, six shrimps were eaten by Harry.

Active: Beautiful giraffes roamed the area.
Passive: The area was roamed by beautiful giraffes.
