Where do folks find the time?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Where do folks find the time, to lurk around You Tube? And head-fi for that matter. I have an excuse in that I'm already collecting Social Security. I would assume students would be studying. What about those with careers? I'm baffled.

x2... My work load is hot/cold. Between projects is a nice down time, my boss is super-cool about that too. So long as I have my pager / laptop with me, I'm no more than ~15 minutes away from a wifi spot and I get my job done he don't care.

I'm a new product release coordinator (even though I am an engineer), so technically I am not responsible for actually doing the engineering analysis/work/testing... I am there to over-see it, review it and level it up for mass-production. So there are a lot of hot / cold spells as we release new products... IE=plenty of head-fi time

Today I am taking a day off

Just because I'm at work doesn't mean I'm doing work... To be fair, I usually don't have much to do, so it's not like browsing head-fi is gonna get me fired.

I have a 1:1 ratio reward system in place. Send an e-mail, read Head-Fi. Read a report, read Head-Fi. Screen some pharmaceutical trademark candidates, read Head-Fi. Go to a meeting, read Head-Fi. I'm balancing my career with my sanity.

Summer vacation; still haven't found a part-time job. Bored of out of mind.

x2... unless the roof caves in and I am needed for an emergency, then headfi surfing gets put on hold

I don't have much free time to surfing internet and/or listening to music. So I tried to make every free moment count. Luckily, I have an access to internet at the work place and I can check out the internet once in awhile between down time. Someday I have lots of downtime and other time almost none; it all depends.

Yeah, there can be weeks and months at a time when it's to the point that I'm taking work home. It all evens out.

Speaking of work, praise Freyja it's Friday.

The real question is: would a Head-Fier ever hire a Head-Fier knowing how much time he would probably piss away on Head-Fi.

I don't surf Youtube (waste of time) unless I'm looking for something specific.

But I work in an office on a computer with internet of course.

So 2 words: alt tab
