What do you spend the greatest portion of your free time doing?

By jardinier ·
Well this is wide open. It could be a hobby. It could be spending time with your family. It could be some kind of charity work or community service.

As I am largely retired, I classify my creative hobbies as my "work." This refers mainly to various non-commercial, non-profit websites which I publish.

So I would say that I spend the greatest portion of my free time communicating: face-to-face, by email and of course through TR discussions.

My free time

is spent making 3d models, reading texts and manuals, drinking coffee and talking with friends both online and r/t.

actually, about 60% of all my time is reading texts and manuals. I just went and bought a text on computer graphics in c, because I had hit a block on an app I'm working on.
( My own version of Maya, 3D Studio Max, Lightwave, Cinema 4D.... )

Free time?

I'm a single mom. The baby is 16, but there's still parenting to be done when I'm not working!
Reading, driving, studying, singing, eating interesting food, drinking interesting tea, continuing my self-directed study of world-class CHOCOLATE, threatening to take up guitar again, threatening even less often to learn how to play this banjo, photography, sight-seeing, needlework, knitting, crochet, swing dance, Toastmasters, car shows, and working my way through Freecell from game 1 up through game 4155 so far. Hey, the description said that all games had a solution, I'm out to prove it to myself. Yes, I am obsessive. Oh, and watching bad old movies and adding to my collection of Delta Blues CDs.

Obviously you are either a genius or a masochist.

I occasionally play a few games of Freecell when I feel that I need some flagellation for the well-being of my soul.
