I’m not sure why it is, but it seems everything takes precedence over my hobbies. This isn’t new, I’ve bitched about it for years, but it has returned to the spotlight recently as I’ve wanted to get things restarted here.
I mean, I get it. My game designing is a hobby, so it gets nudged off of the stage by any work or family issues. It’s a matter of too little time to get done what needs to be done vs. what I want to do. Still, I feel like there should be more of a balance. Even just a little bit more ‘me’ time might make the difference. Instead I have to squirrel away time when I should be working or doing something around the house, which makes me feel guilty.
I know other people manage to do this successfully, and I would love to know how. Do they simply have fewer demands on them? Do they manage to get things done faster, thereby freeing up more time for themselves? Is it that they are just more selfish and forceful and claim a larger chunk of time for themselves? I really don’t know. Whatever it is, I’m rubbish at it.
Needless to say I have no new updates on what I’ve accomplished. Real life keeps throwing a wrench into the works. Maybe another week will see some sort of momentum. Here’s hoping… Again…
