What’s a typical day like for you?
On my average day of work, I start the day at 7 AM with a good refreshing cup of tea along by checking my emails. This way, I can reply to all the support requests and update my tickets and get everything organised at the start of the day.
I then look over my to-do list and get started on the projects that are my top priority.

I wish to be in Sri Lanka in a coastal area enjoying the sun
