After watching 4 episodes of the new Mad Men season last night…… I realised I now have too many hours in my day to waste, no wonder I have become bored by around 7pm each night. I turn my Mac Mini media centre on cuddle up in bed with Cooper and watch a few TV shows or movies each night.
My average week day:
6:00 am – Alarm, hit snooze.
6:09 am – Alarm, hit snooze.
6:18 am – Alarm, turn alarm off, jump in shower, get dressed, eat breakfast, do hair and makeup, organise handbag.
7:05 am – Begin walk to work.
7:30 am – Work for 8 hours with 30 minute lunch break with friends.
4:00 pm – Finish work walk home or gym.
4:30 pm – Begin exercise for the day.
5:30 pm – Home from exercise.
6:00 pm – Dinner. Spend some time with mum.
7:00 pm – I am bored.
10:00 pm – Bedtime. Zzzzzzzz……..
So…. What should I fill these few hours with?
Work has been a bit slow over the Easter break, I have had a fair bit of downtime, and using the time wisely I make to do lists, exercise programs for the winter period, updating my iCloud Diary, completing 2 Tafe Project Management subjects, and posting on this blog. With the spare time today, I came up with a list of activities I could work on between 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm each night I am at home:
- Phone friends
- Personal filing
- Write a Will
All of these are fantastic time fillers, one that stuck out the most for me was Drawing. Late 2011 I purchased an online drawing course from Manga University Japan, it has 6 lessons to complete over any span of time, once completing the course you’re encouraged to submit a drawing of your own work to the University for them to marked and provide tips on what improvements can be made.
Tonight I sat down and began Lesson 1. I’m pretty excited about the results so far and will post previews soon. I intend to make drawing apart of my routine by allocate a few nights per week.
