Looks like I'm going to have very relaxed next two weeks. Swimming lessons are off due to holidays. We will still have other activities but there won't be many people I suppose. So I will have the whole weekend off plus the Monday. Will work all day on Tuesday and then Wednesday off again. Then work all Thursday and Friday too. So that would be 28 hours of work only. That's 10 hours less than what I usually do a week. Do you work on Christmas and New Year holidays?

I don't know which of the two will be given to me. You have too much vacation on holidays. Where do you plan to go?

I did, during my stint as a reporter. Now it is my choice to work or not to work.

@Madshadi Right now, seeing I have my own business at home, I work every day. However, I plan to relax On Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

It doesn't feel good that you have to get up and go to work knowing that most people get to stay home. But with this schedule I can't really complain.

That's great when you can decide when to close your online classes.

Will it be a concern that you won't be paid as much?
