triadruid: Two stick figures from the webcomic XKCD, fighting with swords while they are supposed to be coding (compiling)

...which only exemplifies the problem.

To wit, I used to be one of those people whose First World Problems included "if I could just win the lottery, all of my financial woes would be solved and I could do whatever I wanted". Which, while true, isn't really the 'problem' anymore. Realistically if I could win/make/steal the same amount I take home NOW without having to go to work, I could do pretty much do what I want to do, I'd just have the time to actually do it! That, or somebody invents a 25 30 36-hour day... we'll see which happens first.

I have too many hobbies/tasks. I don't want to give up ANY of them. Hell, I've got ones I want to do I haven't even been able to properly begin (hello archery). I've been going to the gym down the street since cardiac rehab ended, which is AWESOME, but sucks up somewhere between 70 and 130 minutes of the days I manage to go. I've not done any real coding in months, and this week (hopefully) I'll reinstall All The Operating Systems and be ready to play Diablo III in my nonexistent free(r) time. And let's not even talk about costuming...

Anyway, lunchtime's a-wasting. Hope your life is as full and exciting as mine, but perhaps not moreso.

I'm with ya, man. Once I can get off 70-hour workweeks, I might be able to do half the stuff I want to do.

You know I get this, not even considering the archery that I would love to pick back up someday, not to mention the fencing, ditto.

Let's DO talk about costuming! (Yes, I am indeed the ebil enabler.)

I fail to see how talking to you about costuming could POSSIBLY help my freetime problem. :D

Sadly true. But it's so much FUN!

*hee* Yeah. I still look like a Plague Victim but I am better in spirits.

I don't have that many hobbies and it's still a chore to get to/afford them all. I feel ya.

...and a lovely post it was!

I completely understand the too many hobbies, and I've yet to actually dive into most of mine. This summer is about learning better time management and changing that. Of course, I don't believe that to be your problem. A full life is a good thing.

Yeah. Back in May At Beltane I made a promise/oath to do better on using my time intentionally. While that's worked somewhat, it also showed that there literally AREN'T enough hours in the day to do everything I want.

So, yeah, First World Problems abound. :)

I had been feeling that way for a long time. Taking a hiatus from work has helped immensely, but alas, it must be temporary or the money to be able to afford my hobbies will disappear and free time won't be any fun any more.
