To those for whom programming is more than hobby, what does your downtime look like?
It seems to me anyway, that if you are in the industry, or trying to break into the industry, learning is a never-ending task. I can only watch a movie or surf the web in my downtime, my brain is too fried to do anything else.
I could be underestimating the ridiculous amount of time that single life affords one. I married early and I've got two young kids. When I do on rare occasion game, I find myself thinking I should just: A. Stare into space or veg out with a movie and save the mental energy. B. Go do some programming.
Am I the only one who feels like if they aren't conserving their mental energy for some programming, or actually programming, they are "falling behind"?
