On the Varied Use of Free Time

Three things which I do with my free time which will have some impact or change this week: Gaming, Sleeping, Watching TV.

In gaming, I discovered a list of games which are available on computer and have AI opponents. This will probably kill some productivity as it means I discovered San Juan, a card game which I simply must buy a real life copy of. The game dynamics are perfect and it’s in the “learn once, play forever” category. Hope to play this at the next board gaming night.

In sleep, I am attempting to change my sleeping patterns so that I am an early riser. Generally I’m a late sleeper and late riser, but as I get older, I am finding that it is better to wake up early and get things done in the morning. I feel much more productive at the end of the day. To this end I am now sleeping at 10-11pm. ceilingsarecool also appreciates the new schedule because it lines up with hers much better.

In TV, I have concocted a plan to lessen the amount of TV that I watch per week. I have dubbed it the TiVo TV diet, and details are after the fold.
