These days I wish I could go back to the time when I was just a student, doing the school thing and then in between I would have vacations to do whatever I like. I feel as if I had more time on my hands when I was a student than as a post-college adult working to earn a living and trying to figure out where my place is in the world. I’m sure others feel the same way.
Usually parents say we will miss the time we were students once we are out there in the “real world.” Being young and naive, we just brush off those statements and just look forward to the day when you no longer have to study for exams, write papers, and get good grades. It turns out that once you are no longer under the safety net of school, our parents were right.
As an adult you have a lot more responsibilities and things you need to think about seriously. I also find that my time isn’t what it used to be. It also doesn’t help that I got into gaming late in my life. I would have appreciated all the vacation times I used to have to just sit down and game for hours and hours.
Since starting this blog, it’s difficult to find time after a long day at work to write something new. I suppose if you blog/write for a living it won’t be as difficult. I could stop blogging all together, but I do it because I enjoy it. I may not get any money out of it, but it makes me happy. Writing makes me happy. If my blog somehow finds its way out there in the world and people enjoy reading what I have to say then I think it’s worth it.
I really wish I could clone myself sometimes. With more of me, I can get everything I want done in a day. One clone will go to work, another will blog, another will continue my never-ending quest for a new job in media, and I will stay home and play video games, read manga, and watch anime. I can dream, can’t I?
I only wish the days wouldn’t go so quickly. I find I have a hard time getting to do what I want once I finally find the time to do so. Such is life I guess.
