I kow the feeling of having to fight to find time for something you enjoy... except, in my case, there are so many activities which I like that it's rather difficult to fit them all in. I also just received a list of "assignments" for the summer as part of Robotics, so I'll keep busy. And I just realised that I have a flute concert rehearsal in 15 minutes, when I thought it was in an hour and fifteen minutes!!
I can't wait for your book about your mom to come out, I appologize for forgetting the name...
Also the george river story there?? how is that going
well good luck
and sometimes a coffee break here and there can help with the creative process or in my case, with focusing on studying!
