Do you take a couple days to relax? Or do you go and find more work to do. I've just completed semester 1, and now I find myself just relaxing and playing games, but I also get this nagging feeling that I SHOULD be working, instead of playing.
I was just wondering what everyone here does right after a semester, or milestone etc. And how do you get back into the groove of things
When I finished up crunch recently, I took 2 days off, plus a weekend (used more roll-off time to extend my thanksgiving vacation). I was ready to go back to work about halfway through day 3
I totally relate with Geezus - I spent the first two months going home, opening Max, and staring at it, arguing with myself over whether I should be working on stuff in my spare time or playing games.
I still do "art" in my spare time, but its almost exclusively modeling/painting Warhammer 40k stuff nowadays. It was incredibly cathartic to start painting tiny little guys (I have shaky hands), fail miserably, and not have to worry about failing miserably
