You are right. Although I do have a regular job as a high school teacher, I write articles in my free time for extra income but it is true that I can choose when to work and when not to depending upon my workload, my needs, and even my mood at the moment.
Hi! Doing research is not so bad at all. My hobbies include writing articles although that is more like a job but I also write poetry, I read books, and I play mobile games such as Mobile Legends Bang Bang!
