Enjoying Retirement

All this extra freetime is kind of cool. I don't feel stressed about having to constantly balance my workload around gaming anymore. I didn't realise just how much time I spent actually playing games until now.

I came home at 3:30, wrote an email to my tutor, listened to some music, sorted through some files, checked all my news sites (minus gaming sites) and Neighbours isn't even on telly yet.

It's quite refreshing to take a step back and look at how I live my life. I have always used gaming as a means to get away from it, but there is a lot of good going on.

Today I showed one of the teachers (at my placement) my Mouse Skills program (designed to test the kids mouse skills) and he was very positive about what i had done, so I am going ahead and doing more work on it. And my Health and Safety records database I am doing for the head is coming along nicely too, although I went a little over the top on the planning so it is probably a little more complicated and sophisticated than it needs to be.
