Longer days because I always make sure I have extra time to do whatever the fuck I want, even if that means I have to cut into my sleep time.
I mean, it's what I did with school, so I assume it'd work with a job lmao

It seems like only have half days all the time would be really mentally taxing ;v;

As someone who has worked both of these types of jobs I do prefer the longer more steady work days with regular days off.

The job I have now is part time, 4 hour day shifts about twice or VERY rarely 3 days a week.
The pay is terrible, and the job is boring.
It's hell. 
I'd rather work longer but.... They never give out more hours.

I actually have a short workday, with the only days off being the weekend, public holidays, and two/three weeks during the Christmas holidays. The only problem i have with it is the part of the day when it is(5pm-8pm) which means that any clubs and stuff i'd wish to participate in i can't.

That doesn't sound too bad, I know many people with jobs that have the exact same days off but are full day jobs :0 What kind of work do you do?
That is sad to hear B(

I guess the first? I like to have relaxing days or to make one day trips to places, and a full day off would make that more possible than only half a day. Especially with a significant other that I want to see as often as possible.
Though, if I really liked the job and loved to do it, half days could be fun, but there aren't too many jobs that seem like something I would want to do literally every single day :XD: A half day job would be better if I was alone and had pets though, then there'd be plenty of time for the pets next to my job.
