I will usually spend a bit more time on looking at the newspaper or social media, and concentrate on things other than translation, perhaps trying to catch up on some admin or household chores. However, it's been years since I've had actually no work at all. I've generally always got something on the go.

Not much May 14, 2017

It's rare for me not to have work, but I have a morning routine that takes time even when I'm working. I usually start working in the early afternoon and continue through the evening.

Wot! Excuse me! Come again!
I really don't know how to answer this - it's 6:30 pm here in Japan. And, I am having difficulty figuring out the meaning and grammar of this skewed English. icon_confused.gif

I always try to have a few days free after working on a long assignment (it happens quite frequently) and then my routine changes completely: I generally wake up later than usual and the rest of the morning I find myself just wandering around, watching the news, reading a newspaper or a magazine. In the afternoon, I might catch up with my household chores or go for a long walk with my dog…

strange question May 14, 2017

if you're not working, does your morning routine change.

I.E. if I am at work I 'm following my routine, if I am NOT working I am not following my routine, right?

So what are you exactly asking?

I get crazy May 14, 2017

I don't know what to do when I am not working. I end up wasting my time and get anxious. I have to look for something to do. Im a workaholic, I know...

It depends May 14, 2017

There are other obligations to take into consideration. So basically, my routine changes whenever something else changes/comes up. That's fine with me because...routine is boring.icon_biggrin.gif

Back to these polls? May 14, 2017

We had a few decent questions lately, and I though things were getting better. Now we're back to kindergarden questions...

If I am not working, certainly I'll be doing something else May 14, 2017

Kind of nonsense question, I'd say.icon_smile.gif
