Strainy

What did you want to do when you were a child? Why?

A journalist because they travel a lot. But when I was very little I wanted to be a farmer because I grew up in the village.

 

What do you do for a living?

I organise people’s holidays. I help those who are very tired to rejuvenate. I am also a minor problem solver.

 

What do you like about your job?

I like to achieve challenging goals, I also like make people happier. It is very cool to see how people change on the second day of their holiday.

 

What you don’t like in your current profession/job?

I don’t like people. I hate when they are bothering me with their requests (I know it is totally opposite to what I said above, but that’s what I am). I am very annoyed if I don’t have a chance to be alone or to switch off for sometime. Multitasking sucks the energy right out of me and I feel drained.

 

5 things you truly love:

  • Sweets and cakes but not chocolate. Can’t live without them. I especially turn to sweets when I am angry or need to concentrate as I feel they help.
  • To be alone or to go somewhere new where I know no-one. I love to be quiet, I think it helps to recover from work overload and lets me recharge.
  • Travelling by planes, cars or any other transport.
  • Creating something tangible.
  • Everything new – visiting new places, learning skills, trying new food etc.

 

5 things you absolutely hate:

  • More than anything I hate people lying.
  • I hate cold food and cups of tea.
  • Big events and groups of people if there is no way to escape
  • I don’t like to work in the team and with people in general.
  • I hate restrictions such as the 9 to 5 working day, strict norms and rules.
