I was thinking... now that I have a relatively large amount of free time, why I don't work on my plamo projects more.
Then I realized that I've kind of trained myself to only work on Gunpla at night after everything else is done. It was kind of like my reward after doing a bunch of stuff during the day. Time to relax I guess and just throw myself into that world before I go to sleep. Mecha dreams! haha
During the summer when the days are longer I feel like I should be doing other things during the day light hours and when night comes I often find myself out in the city socializing (city boy. Can't help it.)
So despite the tremendous amount of free time I have, I accomplish surprisignly little as far as plamo goes. That's unfortunate. I really feel like I must be one of the slowest gunplars out there! haha and I get distracted so easily too. Just want to keep building. Building building building. I buy because I can. And because they look cool. There's so many things I want to do but realistically..? Yeah I say that but I'm not going to stop. I'm an addict.
During my Sinanju days I'd commit the time. Commit the time... I just really wanted to see the finished product. I was impatient so I pushed. Now I'm just so relaxed and have set my pace up that I don't rush anything.
I'm not saying that I want to change as I'm quite happy with my life right now just the way it is but it is something worth noting. I was unintentionally limiting my Gunpla time because I've set it up as a type of reward mechanism.
When do you like to work on your models and for how long does a 'session' usually last for you? Just curious to hear how other people do it.
Now... can't have a post without pics so... here's an old one from back in the day. People who've frequented this blog from the beginning may remember this one.
