Here are some of your responses
I don’t know what I want to do when I finish my education. My parents work for a large companies but I don’t think I’d like that. I’d like to work from home and be free to go shopping or sleep when I want. I definitely don’t want to be a teacher. I couldn’t work in a school with children. I don’t think I’d be very good at working in a team, either. I like to decide what to do and when to do it. Yes, I believe it’s a good idea for me to work alone, without any people around me. I could work in a office – at my own desk with my own computer – but I would really like to stay at home.
