At the end of every day I wish I didn't live in a world where I have to dedicate ~70% of my waking hours during the week to working on crap I don't truly care about just to put a roof over my head and food on the table.

@erellsworth something I've noticed is that most of the people I know who have the skills to be doing interesting things in their spare time are expected to work so many hours that they don't have any.

@highfellow This is exactly my problem. It drives me nuts. Literally. I'm constantly complaining about it to my therapist.


@erellsworth maybe you need to look for other people who feel the same way about it and work together with them to do something that you think is worth doing?

@highfellow It's a nice thought but it's not for me. I don't like to depend on other people for anything if I can help it and I don't like other people depending on me.

I work on stuff I think is worth doing on my own. Finding the time and energy to do it is the real challenge for me. Too often when I have one, I don't have the other.
