I’m beyond fucking frustrated about the fact that I don’t have time to pursue my personal interests or develop myself. Earlier, I used to teach myself programming, discover nifty tools or play a game or two. I have also wanted to pick up an electric guitar and learn how to play for a very long time.

So, school year’s almost over. What the fuck am I doing instead of screwing around with my Linux installation, setting up a personal server or looking at a guitar to pick up? I’m fucking writing applications for some company to fund my studies next year.

Life doesn’t give you time for the cool stuff, does it?

    No, no it does not.

    I do think that the little amount of free time to spend on projects keep it fun to do, too much time can be draining motivation for some reason

    I'm kind of in the same situation but i think this all comes down to less procrastination and better time management.
    I'm actively working on both.
    Suggestion for a beginner guitar, the Les Paul Special II. Affordable and has a good sound.

    Side projects are rare, completed side projects almost don't exist - I still need to blueprint that IoT toaster design, so, take your career and make it your fun thing.

    Learn on the job, use new tools and tech on the job, and have fun on the job, this way you get paid, and your still developing yourself.

    Sounds cheesy, but work hard now and you'll have time for that later.

    I never had any time for that sort of thing either in school - was too busy with schoolwork, uni applications, trying to understand Latin, and so on. The people shouting "These are the best days of your life!" weren't helpful either.

    But hey, they were wrong, the hard work paid off, and I'm now in a (reasonably) well paid job that gives me good holiday, and a great work life balance that I can use for spending with family and various hobbies. I realise it's not like that for everyone, there's certainly a correlation between working hard at school and doing well in life later.
