Anyone seen my hobby?!

Published on Apr 22, 2008 Hobbies « Prev Next »

I was asked the other day why I don’t update my website more often..    A fine question, and I can only offer one answer..  I just don’t want to..

Er let me amend that.. I do want to.. I mean I enjoy doing this stuff, but I do it all day long!   I’m one of those lucky guys who managed to turn a hobby into a career, but in so doing; I lost my hobby.

I program and work on computers, all.. day.. long..  I don’t much care to come home and do it some more.  Its the main reason some of my online projects are suffering.  It’s not that I don’t wish to make something of them, I just can’t get in the mood to do it.

The upside is, the folks I deal with at IBM are brilliant on a level WAY above me and I am learning a ton.  So when I do finally get around to getting some of this done I’ll be that much better at it.

At this point when I get home each night I usually do one of three things;

  • Play Call of Duty 4 in order to kill people
  • Play World of Warcraft in order to get frustrated with the state of MMO’s
  • Paint miniatures for my 40k Ork Army.

that’s about it.  It’s typically one of those..  More programming or updating one of my sites just usually isn’t in the cards..   I guess tonight was your lucky night!

On the plus side my 40k Ork Army is coming along nicely!
