I tried to take a few days off around Christmas and actually let myself relax, instead of sneaking in a little bit of work here and there like I do on the weekends and such. Which means, of course, that I was playing a lot of video games. And because I’ve been so busy, of course, almost all of them needed lengthy updates. At least this time around I had given myself the time, but it brought back vivid stress memories of when I literally only had half an hour to relax and a game needing to download or update felt like a personal attack. Nothing like carving out some precious, fleeting time for fun and then having it eaten away.
