    You and Roger are as interesting and entertaining as always, but I found this one a little on the depressing side.

    Partly it was that I got an image of you living this busy, busy, busy life of assorted tediousness, and about to replace the one bit of fun that you’ve been having in it with even more busy and tedious. Hopefully that’s not an entirely accurate impression!

      Do not weep for me good sir! I enjoy my leisure time far too much to give it up completely. Yes, I think I could be more productive at times, but when I do channel my energy elsewhere, it will be somewhere that I enjoy, even if that is some form of “work”. The whole idea is to find something that genuinely interests me that could also provide income. Most likely, it will have to start as a hobby as I begin to learn about it, and later possibly transition to a side business. I have too many expenses coming up (college tuition being chief among them) to just drop my current lucrative day job like a bad habit, but perhaps I can shift my hobby time in a way that positions me for a job change sometime in the future. Or maybe not, but whatever the case, I intend to have fun along the way!

      In truth, after several years of floundering, it just feels good to have something to shoot for again. I haven’t felt sufficiently motivated in the “work world” for a good 2-3 years.

        Enoyable is good. Lucrative is good. If you can manage to combine enjoyable and lucrative that is most excellent! I should have known that your plan would be a good one.

    I would also suggest that the “one bit of fun” changes over time. It may be gaming at one point and something else at another.
