🙂 Anyone happen to know where the quote’s from? (No, I will not tell until you guess, or google, lol)
My issue is time. I just have too little of it. To make things work, you have to make compromises. Here’s an insight into my daily life and how I spend my time.
First of all, my job. I work about 37.5 h/week, 7.5 h/day (30 min of lunch is required and not included in our work time). We have sliding hours (we can somewhat freely choose when we arrive in the morning and when we leave in the evening, as long as we do the required hours), but must log the hours we do. Second, my exercise. I have a gym membership, I try to cycle to work regularly, I go to swimming practice 2 times a week (have a trainer), I just started running school and am trying to go for a run 3 times a week (got a training program to follow from the running school). Atm, I haven’t been to the gym in at least a month, because there just haven’t been enough time (and I haven’t had the energy either). Third, I have 6 small companion animals (degus) that require my daily attention. They live 3 and 3 in a cage, and I let them out of their cages every day for an hour of play time. Lately I’ve been doing other things during this time, like cooking, having a shower, surfing the web, etc. which I feel a bit bad about, because I should be socializing with them and not doing other things.
Here’s a pic of one of my girls (Stella), if you’ve never seen a degu before:
Forth, DDO 🙂 I love playing DDO. When I’m on, there’s no other thoughts in my mind but what’s going on in the game. I get completely wrapped up in the virtual world, and I love it. It’s like reading fiction, but instead of just following the story, you are able to affect the outcome. 🙂 I believe I play about 10-30 h/week, mostly weekends, but also about 1-2 h on some week nights.
Now, as you can see I have a lot on my schedule, so I have to prioritize. I believe my priorities are a bit like this: 1. degus, 2. work, 3. exercise, 4. DDO. … and somewhere at the bottom are things like sleep, food and cleaning. Yes, here’s my big problem. I don’t sleep. I do household chores when I feel I’ve left them for too long (like something like every other week)… and I have no interest in cooking or socializing. Oh, I completely forgot about socializing 🙂 I do, on occasion go out, or see my friends, but that’s more of an exception than a rule.
And I’m exhausted. And all I want to do is play DDO. What I do, is have planned breaks from it once in a while to sleep and clean and do other things, but during that time I suffer from abstinence. 🙂 I believe I have a problem.
Take care and see you around Orien (or if I ever get around to it, on Cannith as well).
P.S. I’m doing my first Sprint triathlon on July 1, and I’m hoping to do my first Marathon in September. I have also signed up for Tour de Helsinki (140 km cycling) in September.
P.P.S. I’ve been planning to do/take the SCJP certificate, but I have yet to read the book. I did read the SCJA book, but then skipped doing the test and decided to just go for the next one instead. (just google if you don’t know what it is, lol)
P.P.P.S I’ve been studying Spanish for a few years now, and the last course ended in April (will hopefully continue this fall), and I should be studying, but I have no interest in it.
