Thread: How do you spend your times?

  1. #11
    Hi Kimsoon, I hope you're having a good day. I wonder what you have available in local crafts...I took up jewelry making, pottery and I hope to learn to paint soon. Pottery is really relaxing and I feel great reinventing my artistic side. A good inspirational book can help brighten your day.

    If you began a blog I would read it...

    Same thing I do everyday, launch an evil plot to rule the world!

    I have been raising my children for 29 years but suddenly only my small one, 15 years old, is home and he is out most of the time so I am bored too. I don't know what to do, most of the time I am alone with my two cats.

    And I am doing some housework, shopping, drinking coffee on the sidewalk cafes. But I am not to fond to go out alone, my neighbor in a wheel chair has been robbed four times just outside and we have had too many rapes the last months.

    I work eight hours each weekday and have to squeeze PT into that, as well. In addition, I design ads for a pet magazine, manage my church's website, knit, run errands, putz about the house and yard. Not enough hours in the day, especially since my injury has made me slower than I used to be.

    The first couple years after my accident I earned my masters degree. Then I was bored and spent time at home doing nothing. I started teaching online classes part time in 2005, and was hired as a full time instructor at a state university in 2006. I still teach some online classes, but am mainly on campus teaching in a classroom the last few years. I was promoted to assistant professor last year and will have my PhD by the end of the year. I like PhD better than ABD.

    Volunteering, working out, developing/writing a business plan, creating fiber art, squeezing in a social life.

    Spending Time /

    Since SCI visited me I spend much of my time volunteering, social activities and attempting to learn the art of wood carving. I am active with the Paralyzed Veterans of America. I seldom find myself bored or unhappy with my paralysis.

    I'm currently ABD (history) and hating it. Can't quite seem to muster the enthusiasm to get the damn thing done. Other than that, a partner and I rent wheelchair vans and I dabble in stock trading. Internet, family, friends. A bit of cooking. Nothing very exciting, but enough to get through each day without going comatose.

    Now that I have stopped working I spend a lot of time online, in addition to reading and tv watching. I also plant a small flower garden each summer, or sometimes buy the flowers already in pots so all I have to do is tend them.
