Get out of bed.

I don't work or go to school, so I might not be the right person to answer that question. :p

On weekdays my 'routine' looks like this:

7:30am - Wake up and get dressed etc.
8.50am - School starts
12:30 - Lunch Break (1 Hour, we can leave school as well! :D )
1:30pm - Afternoon Lessons Start
3:35pm - School Ends

Then I come home and do whatever :D

And weekends:

Between 8am-11am - Wake up
11am - Midnight - Do something interesting :D Blah.

Pretty much my exciting life, not much happens in other words.

Must be nice heh, I am working more than 40 hours a week atm. Infact this week I don't even have a day off.

I guess I should actually get rich instead of playing blue collar =/

I am trying to write the next fictional best seller, in a similar style to Laymon, Koontz and i suppose... King!.

Other than that a few building jobs a year to keep me going.:)

Work days...
7:00 Get up
8:00 Walk to work (I'm a teacher)
8:15 Wander into staff room and collect messages about how evil my tutor group are...
8:30 Registration
8:45 Lessons begin
15:10 School ends - kiddies go home. I finish off all the things I can't take home (book marking (I'm not lugging 30+ books home!), project marking (same goes with big A2 posters...), administration: sorting out sickness notes, writing reports etc. etc... Go to any meetings I have scheduled).
16:30 - 17:30 (depending in whether I have meetings or not)... go home
18:30 - 19:00 Work beings again - marking, lesson planning, resources making... (depends on what I managed to do during the day! I invariably do at least an hour a day at home each evening, and a good couple of hours at least on a Saturday)
20:30 - 21:00: Finish work, watch a bit of TV, play a game, do some sketching.
22:30 Bed!

But I'm on holiday now! Yay!

I have to do some work, but I can't be arsed... I have 30 essays and 50 odd autobiographies to mark by next week! And a load of poetry lessons to plan... sometimes, I do wonder *why* I chose this profession... (then I remember - 6 weeks holiday in the summer!!)

Holidays are cool, but they make you soooooo lazy... :D

Only when you've got as much work to do as I have... ;)

I MUST motivate myself. Maybe I can wrangle Lara into my Media lessons somehow... then I'd definitely be a bit keener!

Cool I wanna be a teacher!!:p
:D Excellent! It's a fun profession, but it is a lot of hard work...

Are you going for little ones or older ones? I teach the older ones; 11 - 16... (for my sins!)

The hardest work I ever did was farming. It was also the smelliest work :D

I think farming, building and mining are the most difficult jobs!!!!

Hi Angelika :wve:

I worked with rabbits, on a very large scale but I also worked with pigs, lambs and vegetables as it happens!

My family dreaded home time and I would have to undress in the hall and run straight into the bathroom for a good scrub! Rabbit farming is very rare and it is extremely nauseating as you have to let the dung pile up under the cages in order to soak up the 'amonia' in their pee. It isn't a job for the faint-hearted I can assure you :vlol:

One of the most exhausting jobs I ever had was as a strapper in a race horse stables.

Up at 3.30am to be at work at 4 am. Get the horses ready to go to the track at least 2 float loads around 16 horses. Have to be there at 4.30am Work some of the horses (the apprentices and maybe a qualified jockey train the rest). Walk the horses to cool them. Hose all the horses and scrape them as dry as possible and rug them. Reload the horses back in the floats get them back to the stables. Me and the 2 apprentices feed all the horses (around 30 of them). Then we get breakfast at around 8.30am

After breakfast clean all the stables, clean the horses hooves. Around 11 am feed all the horses again. Between 12 and 2 pm have lunch then have a sleep. 2pm exercise all the horses except those that a resting probably around 24 horses. Clean all the stables again. Late afternoon feed all the horses again.

Get home around 7pm. Have a shower cook dinner do some housework then crash.

I did this 6 days a week as I refused to work on Sundays. And usually had a race meeting on top of that on Saturday.

Well I have 2 full time jobs, One is 8 to 5, Monday to Friday. The other is flexable, usually 4 hrs weeknights, 8hrs Saturday and if i'm up to date, Sunday off. My day starts at 6am and I usually get to bed around 1am.
I look forward to Sundays - sleep in till 8! Bliss. At least, being computer bound for so long, I get on the net a lot.

I don't work so...

I get up.. eat, do whatever and around 7pm I go to school. So I guess a hard days work is when I have to stay at school until around 11pm. But now the days are getting warmer so it won't be so bad to stick around.
