It’s hard to believe that we are already over halfway through June. It’s been what, a month and a half since I’ve been out of the Navy? Yet I feel like so much is going on.
I suppose what bothers me is a dearth in personal development. I’m still constantly learning, that much is certain. But learning many new skills at my new job has put a pause on web development and college. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s something that I’m trying to find a good balance…how far do I want to go with my career? How much more time should I devote to learn additional skills? How much money should I invest in schooling or education?
Blogging is good. Writing things down keeps up the motivation to do what I do, and the enjoyment of sharing the fun hobbies and past-times I have. It’s important to get back into that rhythm. I can’t always find time to play games, read comics, or work on model kits…but if I can at least spend some time writing…that’s something, right?
In the next few days I’m going to push out as much content as possible. There’s a limit of course, I’m not going to spend 6 hours a day blogging about what I ate for lunch. I’m utilizing some apps and tools to help branch out, push ideas forward (before I forget them), and most importantly, to have some fun!
So gaming and hobbies and obviously a good way to spend some time, but without an audience, what does it matter? I’m going to reach out with social media…Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook. Keep stuff fresh, meet new like-minded people, and stay on top of current events in the nerd-world :).
With that said, take a look at this new T-Shirt I picked up…
