My priorities

What I mostly take into consideration is the working day.

I’d like to avoid night shifts or working late. I don’t want to put up with working under pressure from 9 to 5. I feel like having flexible working hours. I mean piecework or working from home. I can’t do without freedom. I can’t stand taking responsibility for others – I’d rather work on my own, freelance to be exact.

But what turns the scale is the creativity of the

Thus, I am planning to have work which can give me freedom to create, to develop myself and to learn new things.
