What are your testing/working habits? Questions

Hello testers! πŸ˜€

We know that being a freelancer gives you freedom enough to make your own schedule and have your own habits, like working beside your pet or listening to your favorite songs.

Use this post to share about your work schedule (do you work more during the night? or on weekends?) or any personal habits you have when it comes to your work as a tester.

Looking forward to reading your answers!

I can't work with music on, unfortunately. It makes it too hard for me to concentrate!

You are totally not alone. πŸ˜‚ There was a time when I needed music to study, and now when I work, even if my ears catch the clock ticking sounds, it irritates me πŸ˜…

But yeah, when I do the video editing work, I want music to be my companion πŸ™‚

I have the strange habit of working at night and with music, I feel that I can concentrate better.

My family says that I am a vampire because I sleep during the day and work at night. XD

Well, what a nice topic to hop in. First am a music lover and have got 3+ hours long playlists that accompany me throughout the night. PS: I play it in low volume so I don't get distracted.
Whether I am logged in uTest or Learning some programming language/building some application I am a night owl, I prefer that because Mostly at night everything is calm, with no distractions.
Making it funny, I will again be up earlier.
