Do you work? Go to school? When do you play and how do you structure up your playing? Tell me more about yourselves, I am curious!

I work in IT, I spend 2 hours a day driving to and from work the days I need to be on location but thankfully I can work from home often enough so I don't have to spend 10 hours a week driving. Since the role I have at the company I work for is one part management and one part product responsibility my work day can start and end on abnormal times and be very short one day only to be very long the other. Also since it's an international company I often spend time in various locations in Asia and Europe so I got a WoT account on all servers and I tend to play it when I spend the evening at the hotel I'm staying at. I tend to play during the evening/nights the most and I got no real plan or structure in mind, I just play WoT when ever I feel the urge to do so, just as I often can spend a day looking at my people building something in a city builder or take over the world in an RTS or chase every achievement in some RPG/MMO.

 

I also have a wife that also works in IT that have similar work hours and responsibilities as well as two kids that even at young age have shown an interest in gaming (the bastards beats daddy at Pinball on my favorite retro machine the Amiga 500). When the kids arrived my time playing WoT was limited, not due to the kids but more due to relatives feeling the urge to visit and cuddling with the kids all the time, thankfully the worst offenders their grand parents have slowly but steadily been getting back to normal even though it was nice having them around cooking and putting stuff into the dishwasher for a while.

I work for a smallish ICT refurbishing company, 32 hours a week.

Got a bunch of great colleagues though, so even if the work gets dreary, we can pull each other through the day.

 

Spend my wednesday cleaning my house, doing groceries, etc.

Cook for myself 95% of the time as well since microwave meals etc. are just a big disappointment most time I have them.

Cba to get a pizza delivered either.

 

Outside of WG.net games I enjoy (mostly) RPGs and visual novels, along with riichi mahjong.

Outside of gaming I enjoy watching anime, military scale models, reading books, and taking walks through the park with my friends and their huskies.

Also, I listen to music while doing pretty most of the above.

Nowadays I deal with CAD data network in a utility company.

Started computer games with an apple ][ and never stopped.

In fact I had to learn english because I really needed to play this : https://www.youtube....h?v=i1cRpql7XlI

Even tough I technically started with an Amiga 500 it was only when dad brought home a Mac and Strategic Conquest that I felt I had to learn English:

I loved to point out to my parents that my good grades in English originated from me playing games when ever they told me to study rather than play some random game, sadly I was not the ruler of the power cord...

Retired! Always thought how nice it would be, no pressure of work no targets to achieve....

Then 'inherited' two grandchildren but still find time to play WoT and 'play' with model trains so life is nice and rosy.
