I have a tendency to burn my free time.
I work 8-5 five days a week. On top of that, my girlfriend and I watch a lot of ongoing TV series, I'm learning to drive, I subscribe to like 200 people on YouTube (which is a bugger for procrastination), I play a lot of games, I read a lot, I write a lot (although not as much as I probably should), and I work on Passable Media content. But there's only so much time I have to give. I don't have the issue where social media takes over my life-- I flick through Twitter as Passable Media once a day, and maybe once a week on my own account, but that's about it.
I'm trying hard to trim the fat as it were. I cut out my D&D games because of the sheer amount of time it takes to plan games plus the loss of an entire evening once a fortnight. I've uninstalled all but one of my mobile games after deciding that I wasn't really enjoying them and was playing them out of habit. Jade and I are steadily culling shows we don't really enjoy, and I'm chucking out YouTube subs that I don't actually engage with anymore. I'm trying to do better when it comes to just... general procrastination. Heck, this blog has suffered, it's got to be eight months since I last posted.
So my aim is to spend at least one evening a week working on original Passable Media content, one evening streaming for Passable Gamers on Twitch, one evening writing, and so on and so forth. I'd like to say I'll write something here once a week as well, but I feel like that's a promise I won't keep whether because I don't have all that much to say that isn't covered in one of my other projects. But I guess what I'm saying is that I'm going to start posting on here a little more.
...I also killed a couple of the more political posts I had on here. Not because I don't feel that way or because my politics have particularly changed in the last year or so, but because the posts themselves haven't aged very well. I'm probably not going to touch that side of the world going forward. Let's keep things lighthearted, eh?
