What do you do when you are not playing/discussing/watch Tennis

Do you work, do you study, what do you do?


Right now, I'm in my last year of university, studying International Relations.
I plan to travel and then I guess I'm getting a job. My future is pretty uncertain right now!!

Re: What do you do when you are not playing/discussing/watch Tennis

I'm at sophomore at Arizona State University studying International Management, so that takes up a few hours a day going to classes. And then I come home and my wife and I spend time together talking about tennis (haha) or taking long naps, and then I spend the rest of my time writing/recording music and studying/doing homework for my classes. And then aside from ALL that, I try to manage and find a few hours playing/practicing tennis, writing about tennis, watching tennis or working out. Fun life

cool stuff, I also record music. Plan to record a finished album by december and am working on a more synth-based album right now.
I also paint when I can, but right now university is really demanding.

Yeah luckily I'm still a sophomore so we are finishing up our core classes (like Enlgish, Math, etc) and starting our regular major classes so I haven't been exactly TOO stressed. How often do you have to go to class and dedicate yourself to studying and such?

Re: What do you do when you are not playing/discussing/watch Tennis

My timetables are ordered randomly every semester, usually it stretches from 9 am to 5 pm and one free day of the week, currently thursday, which I take advantage of to practise tennis. And I'm a huge procrastinator, I don't study until exam periods. Which is right now, and I have to finish an essay which I'm not feeling like doing right now, because I didn't get the right amount of pressure yet.

I work as an assistant teacher of Spanish in a German high school.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: What do you do when you are not playing/discussing/watch Tennis

When I'm NOT doing something involving tennis?

Well, when not playing, I'm usually at school or studying, and when I'm not doing one of those, I'm either:

1.
2.
3.

And that's pretty much it

Re: What do you do when you are not playing/discussing/watch Tennis

I'm a Social Worker, and work with abused kids in London. I come here in my lunch-breaks at work, and maybe an hour or so in the evening or if I have any spare time at weekends. But I also run a home, do voluntary work with animals, travel in my holidays from work, read a lot, and do some writing in my spare time - so guess that shows I don't have so much spare time

Re: What do you do when you are not playing/discussing/watch Tennis

Radiation Cancer doc- work 50 hours a week and then come home and tend to a house and family. Rarely around MTF anymore. And the only tennis I ever "chat" about is finding out how my youngest is doing on the tennis team at school and with one co-worker for about 5 minutes when something exciting happens. That meant when Delpo won the USO

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
