I know this sounds a bit funny, but I cannot stress the importance of having fun with what you do. It is very easy to get caught up in your career and work yourself to the bone and if you don't take a little bit of time everyday to do something fun, something that you enjoy, you are going to burn out so fast. Trust me, I speak from experience.
So what do I mean by Karts and Mon? I am of course referring to Mario Kart and Pokemon for those of you who are a little confused. Well let me explain!
Every lunch at the studio I work for, a group of my co-workers get together and play Mario Kart to give themselves a break and to have some fun! I join them on occasion and I can definitely say that on the days that I do, I always feel more uplifted (despite how ruthless they play hehe, seriously they are vicious) and ready to take on the second half of my day.
As far as Pokemon goes, you probably guessed, I am a HUGE fan. I have a lot of Pokemon-related toys, clothes, games and other goodies. Something that I love to do is participate in the community, hang out with my Pokemon buddy (Tynder Fox) and draw Pokemon fan art! This is one of the many hobbies I have and one of my favourite ways to unwind!
Short post, but now I would like you to think about what you do to have fun and lighten up your day?
