I've been seeing a few posts/threads regarding how much folks play poker online. I honestly find it mind boggling, the number of hours put into online poker, for some people. I'm sure it must be profitable, in some way,(in the pocketbook or through experience) to want to continue to play hour after hour.
I have often wondered what everyone does with any extra time or down time from the poker tables (whether online or live).
Sooooo, what do YOU do in your free time? (Being a bit nosy)
Just noticed myself a while back that the only thing I do at my PC (except serfing the web) is playing poker. Before I used to play games, mostly emulation, but that had stopped aswell. I've therefore promised myself to start playing more games again We do use a lot of time on this hobby, maybe to much
I seem to have too many hobbies. My daughter and I care for and ride horses(she is the competitor) I help out with conformation dog shows from time to time (belong to a rescue organization for collies) I like to paint, but haven't done much of that in the past couple years. I have written a ton of short stories, totally fiction and have a good chunk of a novel completed (I would love to have it published someday, at the very least) I have 3 kids as well.. one still in high school, 1 in college, 1 just finished college and looking for work. I work 3 days a week, as well. Sounds busy huh? I spread it out enough, so I don't get bored.
I am always trying to find something to fill my time with, usually something with a bit of a challenge.
I use to try and do it all too!! I have had to teach myself how to realax. I have one child that has finished college and looking for full time work( only part time atm) and another that is in first year at college. I spend as alot of time with my family when they are home. I worked part time and stopped about 3 years ago. I cook, clean shop and everything everyone else has to do and still manage to be fairly active in the forums and at the tables. Anything i do online is purely entertainment and helps to break up my day. I love to play online poker and have never played live. lol But having lots of fun progressing day to day. I watch alot of reality tv and of course have a few other favourites. Just chillin these days and trying not to sweat the small stuff.
I retired from a very busy career 3 years ago and and did some contract work for a while. But now I can truly say I'm a retiree. My mom passed away just before I deciced to retire and I've been pretty busy taking care of My dad. Even though he is in a retirement home, I still need to take him to all his appointments and I find that I actually visit him more now than I did. I've all ways played games online: Euchre and poker mostly but I do play other games I truly enjoy playing poker and lately I've been doing more reading on the subject. I love to watch movies ... all kinds of them . I do like a lot of the reallity shows. Howerver I cant't stand Big Brother. I enjoy travelling ... I enjoy going to the casino. I spend time with may sisters anr brother. I like the challenge of playing Poker. I know that I should play more of it but somehow most of the time, my days are too short to allow me to do everything I want to to.

Away from computer??? What that even means?
The first step is admitting you have a problem, Tzest..lol..j/k
Yes, i totally agree. You should admit you have a problem because you go away from the computer.
Computers are man's best friend IIRC.
Honestly, no one would want to have me sit by the computer every waking hour. Do you have any idea what that does to a woman's butt? I am thinking if computers are a man's best friend, that might explain the remote control problem men seem to have.
Well i guess i am with tzestos and 103 bluffer when i do other things i am thinking of all yje games i missed ..that is when i go to work or when my wife threatens divorce i take her out lol..my real wife gets jealouse of my not real wife..the laptop aka my fantasy world wife.
