Be genuine to your mind..

    I’ll go with office work.. as house hold work can be fun to do with loud music and liquor unlike office work 😛 😀

    You know Akhila, your posts are thought provoking!! I have worked earlier in my life and being a hectic one, i wanted to stay home… now that i am staying home, i am tired of being here too much and hence, wanna go back to work.. funny but in a way very sad…

      Hello gal. Quite thought provoking. Hehe he. I would like to have a balance. I realised when I sit at home for a longer time, I go crazy. Lol. A job which is 9 to 5 ideally, but practically impossible. And doing household work post that makes it annoyingly stressful. Hence, work from Monday to Friday. Fulfil all your passions and dreams. On the weekends, chill a lot, spend time with family and friends. Involve in cooking or plan for outings. Manage to keep a maid for the weekdays. That’s how I think it should be for me. 😛 😛

    i would like to try both in an alternative mode 😀 since i can’t think of staying away from my research life as it demands 24 x 7 presence of me…at the same time i would like to escape :p from work and be at home in an hibernating mode to get myself recharged 🙂

      hmm.. still you are treating your home as a hibernating mode..well..it means your preference will mostly go to work and some occasional break in between as every one wish..am I right.?

        yes…during my hibernation…i would love to spent time with everything related to home…whether its cooking…cleaning…music…movie…art…reading … anything but will stay in home… 🙂 in fact being active at home is my way of forgetting work 😉

    I see a mixed opinion here.and should be. We have lot of career oriented women who are doing so good in their office and we also have excellent home maker who are doing exceptionally well. And women and naturally gifted with a talent of multitasking . so unless they enjoy both they would want to take a break from either of them for a while… Nice question btw

    It is a looping answer Akhila. when we work, we feel to take a vacation and remind ourselves of the joys of being at home, but after a prolonged period basking, you again look for work, that is, I guess human nature. I also feel, work is what makes us happy because without work, would we be truly happy?

      yes Sunith i can understand..but even when you prefer to be at home, i suppose you are not the home maker..

    I think it depends on how I feel at the time. Usually it is away from my household chores sat in front of a computer (I have a cleaner and am a tidy person so my house looks after itself…) But sometimes if I have been overdoing it I shall most definitely enjoy a break from my work…..

    If I shut out my internet and my phone that itself is a break. Whenever I take off, I take off from both 🙂 if only one, the option does not come.. 🙂

      not any options to take a break from both responsibilities simultaneously. my question was if you get a chance to take a break from either one, definitely not both, which will be preferred..?
      thanks fairy

    My home(?) is my office. whenever I feel like I relax and do nothing… not even reading. Switched off completely. Since necessity maketh a man… I enjoy my own cooking… if time permits. Magazine work is like that, can’t help.
