    Re: How many hours do you work a week?

    Not only do I not work I will never work again. Fact is I didn't work ever when I was on the Radio. If I were to have an opportunity tp do a radio program I believe most who post here would be a fan because I welcome view that don't match my own and they go to the head of the line, because i love to debate, and unlike others I never cut call short and they pretend they hung up.

    A couple of months ago at an obligatory social function. (I hate those things) Someone asked me how many people I had working for me. I said, "About half."

    40-50 hours/wk (no overtime) + part time weekends

    Most of them. Every waking hour not devoted to studying is one that could be devoted to it. I don't keep a tally but it probably comes out to around 50-70 hours a week. Then there's the time spent on my internships, student orgs, local civil rights stuff...

    No wonder I have no time for dating. >_<

    Let's not generalize, I am neither too busy or a good debater.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    Re: How many hours do you work a week?

    I could not answer ... some random weeks 60+ yet ideally around 30. I guess you are talking about the work we all do to earn a living. Yet should we have such a defined line? ... on days of leisure I might be enjoying the physical world, working online, cooking, gardening, artistic pursuits or writing. During times of leisure I might solve a "work" issue in my mind or create ... something to eat, something of beauty or even find a solution for my "paid" work.

    When I travel ... I might work one day in the middle of a few leisure days.

    Reading through the posts ... people are working too much.

    Check out this interview.

    How To Be Idle: An Interview with Tom Hodgkinson | Mother Jones

    MJ: And idleness and hard work aren’t mutually exclusive; there's just a more balanced way of approaching hard work, right?

    TH: Yes. And I had that approach right from the beginning. It wasn’t exactly the old “do nothing all day,” it was just that you appreciate the value of a good portion of doing nothing in your day—for your mental health, your physical health, your relationships, that sort of thing. But also you appreciate the importance of getting out of this wage-slavery thing, more or less, and try to look after yourself, and that’s the anarchist side of it. People say, “Aren’t you going backwards?” or “You’re a Luddite.” But I think it’s good to look at how people lived before, and then take the best bits of that culture and try to mix it in with your own.

    I work 36 hours, 3 12 hour shifts. It's considered full time even though it isn't 40 hours. Pretty standard for a nurse.
