How many days OFF do you get?

And by OFF i mean no work whatsoever even on the computer at home ie: writing/web designing.

Currently i have one, but even then there is school work to be done.

I work four days on (12 hour shifts) and get four days off. I like it because I usually forget I have a job during my days off.

^^^ I wouldn't mind that schedule. I don't usually have days off... even when I'm technically not working, there is always something to be done it seems

Yeah...I do two days, then two nights, then four days off. Which is good because by the end of your second 12 hour day you want to die, but you have 24 hours to relax before your two night shifts.

one day off a week usually. 2 if i'm really really lucky. but that only happens about once every 2 months. but i work 4-11/12ish so my days are pretty free. i like to get things done in the am or try to anyways. that way my days off can be spent doing basically nothing!

Usually 1/2 complete days off without doing anything at all at home; but it all depends on the amount of shows I'm dealing with and the lead up to them.

Hell, sometimes I go a couple of weeks with no days off at all.
