I had a terribly realization recently: my biggest hobby for the last couple years has been “making websites”. Sadly, that’s also what I do for a living.
The biggest pitfall in having your career as a hobby is becoming a bit shallow. This would happen: “Arley! What’s new?” After being asked this I would do a quick analysis of the asker: Do they care about the Internet? No? “Nothing is new.” I want a bit more breadth than that.
I realized it’s high time I rekindle an interest in my old hobby: playing music. I recently traded an old ignored Epiphone Les Paul for a beat up Fender Jazz. It’s awesome. Last weekend I completely stripped it down, cleaned and rebuilt it (pics!).
Get a hobby.
