Work Apr 21, 2018

Unfortunately. I have so much going on during the week that I end up working on weekends. Since I live alone with my dog, it's the one time when I don't get interruptions.

Weekend or not, immaterial Apr 21, 2018

If you're not constrained by having a partner who works a five-day week or children with a five-day school week, one of the advantages of freelance work is that you can work any time you like and do other things when free of work.

A combination Apr 21, 2018

Sometimes I take weekends off, sometimes I don’t, it all depends on the amount of work I have and on the deadline. If I have no work at all and the weather is not good, I might complete some procrastinated domestic chores (ironing, for instance), but right now, and until the middle of May, I’m on a period with no weekends off in sight and long hours every day as I’m editing a very long e-course and at the same time trying to keep all my other regular clients happy…

Sometimes I work on Saturday and Sunday, sometimes only in the morning, Sometimes I do not work at all, sometimes I work from 6 am to 1 pm.. It just goes with the workflow.

It depends entirely on the workflow/load.

Some work-related and some other Apr 21, 2018

Sometimes I get a small translation or proofreading job on Friday that is due on Monday. I send out invoices. Weather permitting I shop for groceries. These things usually fill my Saturday. On Sunday I relax and read and the highlight of my weekend is talking to my children by phone or via Skype.

Depends on the time of year Apr 21, 2018

Over the winter when it is gloomy outside I often take on some additional work over the weekend to earn a little extra. In contrast during the summer months I like to take advantage of the better weather and travel as much as possible. As I am disabled, I am in the fortunate position of qualifying for a travel pass that lets me travel anywhere within my own country for free, although today I ventured a little further afield by travelling "abroad" within the UK and had to pay for it.

Combination of all or some of the above Apr 21, 2018

Sometimes I work, sometimes I don't have any translations to do during the weekend and in that case, I just want to get out of the house 'cause I don't see much of that during the week ...

I am a victim of Racist people of France so I cry... Apr 21, 2018

I have no way out.

I work, I try, I cry...

I am faithful in love. I work hard. I research a lot.

But people prefer white skinned, catholic and rich people.

I am lost and I cry.

Weekend? Apr 22, 2018

What is a weekend?
I rest when I don't have work. It could be a weekend, or a Wednesday, or a Friday...
