    Hi Kurtlau!! In the first case you have "simple present tense" which indicates that you habitually do the thing you mention.
    Eg,

    I always do my homework in the afternoon

    I always watch TV in the evening

    I always have coffee for breakfast



    In the second sentence you have "present continuous tense" + "always" which indicates some kind of "annoyance" on the part of the speaker.

    Eg,

    I am always working

    She is always complaining

    He is always making noise

    They are always telling me what to do


    Hope this helps! Maeve
