Another example is with a job, if I work a full time job that means that I work all regular hours at my job.

Q: living in an English-speaking country would also be a bad idea, because I need to be fluent if I want to work there does this sound natural?
A: It sounds natural, so long as before this sentence you mention something else that is a bad idea. Example:

"It is a bad idea for me to live in Antarctica because it is cold and there are only penguins to keep me company. Living in an English-speaking country would also be a bad idea, because I need to be fluent if I want to work there."

Someone please!! save my life!!! lol
A: It means you don't appreciate what you have, or you don't realise the value of the thing or person that you have because you are so used to having it. For example, kids are used to having their parents give them things and so they often take their parents for granted and ask them for money and technology without realising how much effort their parents need to put in to earn that money. They think they can just ask and they will get, so they're taking them for granted.
