What I do with my life  
I got some free time due to forgetting work at work (so to speak). Thus, for no real reason, I thought I'd try give myself a grasp of what it is a do with all my time. Because I think it's tricky to get an idea of where all the time disappears to. Here's my attempt at untangling that question.

- I'm a full time speech-language pathologist, working 8-17 at a place that's a 40 minute train ride from where I live.

- I try to spend as much time with friends and family as I can, though most live at least an hour away from me with train. I do get to see them a lot despite this - thank you technology and Sweden's generous vacation laws - so I spend a lot of time with them, both just having fun and colaborating on different projects.

- I read a lot and love using Goodreads. Have strated reading more in my native tongue (Swedish) since we started a book club at work, but mostly I end up reading books/comics/etc. in English.

- I LARP and am part of a big Lord of the Rings based club. This means I attend LARPs every third month or so, as well as arrange a LARP event each year.

- I go jogging or swimming as often as I can. Now that it's getting colder my asthma makes running difficult and getting the time to go swimming is tricky, but I do my best. I really miss pole dancing :(

- I role-play post-by-post style in five Elfquest based groups. Two of them I'm admin of. One of said groups has a website I also maintain as often as I can.

- I write. I just finished NaNoWriMo, I've signed up for Yuletide, I'm working on posting more to Archive of Our Own and I hope to post stories on Fic Street once it sees the light of day.

- I try to keep up with Tumblr. This is a futile struggle.

- I watch vidoes online, as we all do I should think. Everything from Zero Punctuation to Brows Held High.

- I play video and computer games when I find the time and energy. Favorite is the Mass Effect series. I can't count how many times I've replayed all the different games.

- Two of my friends are members of a group that arranges a club about once a month. I try to find the time to attend and tear up the dance floor there!

- I cosplay and dress up in other ways occasionally. I love acting, though I don't think I'm good at it, and I can't make costumes to save my life, but I have a genius sister that I can mooch off of. Usually attend at least one convention a year.

What else? Probably lots of little stuff. But these are the main things my time goes to. Pretty good stuff, I think :)

Agreed, this seems like a great list to me. :-)
