    Hello, my name is Niklas and I live in Sweden. I have a school project where I'm supposed to ask people from other countries different questions about their culture and works.

    If you got the time, please answer these quick ten questions.


    1. In what country do you live?

    2. Do you like it there?

    3. Have you lived in any other country?

    4. What do you work with?

    5. How long have you worked there?

    6. How long is a regular workday for you?

    7. How many breaks do you have?

    8. Do you like your current occupation?

    9. What makes your country special? (Food, culture etc.)

    10. Where do you see yourself in ten years?

    Ok, here's my answers:
    1. England, UK
    2. Yes, most of the time.
    3. Yes.
    4. I work in an office for a local charity, do a bit of IT support and sell paintings.
    5. Office (3-4 years), IT Support (8 years), Art (2 years).
    6. Varies, roughly 11-12 hours a day (bare in mind I juggle multiple jobs).
    7. Office (30 minute lunch break and two 5-10 minute breaks), IT (as many as I want/need), Art (again, as many as I want/need).
    8. It can get tiring juggling jobs but I do enjoy my work.
    9. Not sure really, I guess England is well known for how diverse the country is. I don't think we have anything special for food, we pretty much have every other country's foods instead of our own.
    10. I don't really plan that far ahead, I guess I'd like to see myself putting more time into a single job than splitting my time up so much. Other than that, owning my own home would be nice.

    England.

    No.

    No.

    Electrical/electronic equipment to do with the events industry like anything from amps, speakers, lights, three phase power...

    About 16 months.

    8.5 hours but can be considerably longer in the summer.

    1 x 30min for lunch and two 10min break now in the morning and afternoon.

    On the whole yes but there's other things I would want to be doing.

    England is special because it likes to import lots of foreign people to do basic jobs, this takes away the jobs from the bums who would usually do them so they complain but in the end they just get some money from the government to drink and smoke whatever drugs and have lots of dysfunctional children who go around getting involved in crime.

    In ten years (in all seriousness) I plan to have a very successful business well known for it's amazing design and live in Italy or London.
