Default How do you usually relax when you get home from work? - 04-11-2013, 00:28 | posts: 6,705 | Location: Portland, Oregon

Just wondering.

Typically I'll have a beer within minutes of taking off my shoes. Often times, I'll just go grocery shopping for 30min to an hour before going home. Maybe staring at food makes me happy.

This article was giving me ideas, but they....sound feminine. Actually many artciles I flipped through sound very feminine. Lighting candles, bubble baths, cupcakes??

Kick back and check what's been happening on the internet while i've been gone at work, sometimes a couple beers, or some cola.

Then to games or films, though I spend so much time procrastinating on the internet I rarely get more than two episodes of a series watched, then bed to read for a bit. After i've read the same sentence 10 times it's usually a good sign to give up for the night.

Relaxing doesn't happen until the children are in bed as any family man here can attest to.

If I play games after work, I get that feeling that I could be productive with something else because I'll forget about the time.
I'm starting to mess with music programs, so maybe that could be a relaxing thing, but often times I'm sitting there twisting knobs, hitting keys and buttons until I get burnt out.
I was thinking of picking up some more Gundam models because they are fairly relaxing when completed, but at the same time, sanding small pieces gets tedious.
I'm thinking of starting to go for bike rides, but I kinda just feel like sitting down since I stand most of the day.

I also wanted to pick up a project car, but that feels more like a weekend thing?

Play video games, browse the internet, or fix whatever is broken outside. And by that I mean usually my pickup. In the summer I don't have as much free time as I'm usually doing farm work as soon as I get home.

Wish I had time to relax! Actually, I tell a lie; I spend about an hour surfing the net while I'm eating and that's my relaxation period. Have to be up for work again in four hours, why isn't it Friday yet damnit
