    Time is important to me. I try to use my time wisely. Even when I am on this site, I am working on my craft.

    I do not watch TV, since I believe it takes up too much time.


    Time management is important. Once time has gone, there is nothing you can do to retrieve it. At the end of each day, I usually ask myself what have I accomplished. One day is twenty four hours. I usually priortise my time..since there are things which are more important than others.

    Usually I'm either with my daughter on the weekends...Or I'm out on the town in a watering hole...Or I'm taking photography....Or I'm with my parents at their house eating their food....Or watching movies, playing video games (cause I'm a kid trapped inside of woman's body), wreaking havoc on this site or facebook, sleeping, eating some more, writing short stories....
    I try not to do a whole lot because when I do too much I tend to get myself into trouble.

    I think you would make a good writer. Perhaps one of these days you would be able to publish them. Writing is good therapy. I think we all have a story to tell. Traditionally story telling is an African tradition, oral tradition. keep going at it and I wish you all the best in whatever you do.

    I read & study. I also write poetry, play basketball, pray & spend time by myself. Outside of reading & studying most of any other remaining time is usually by myself. I do hang with friends here n there as well.

    Realize I do not do all that will be listed every single day and that what is listed is all I do in my free time, but for the sake of adding to the convo I'll add...

    I play spades (my favorite pastime)
    I'm a big NFL fan
    I watch basketball, but for the most part if Da Bulls ain't playin' I ain't payin' attention
    I do work around the house... hence the the forum handle

    I keep up and with news in various formats, watch the news and news magazine shows
