Discussion on: What do your typical after-work hours look like?

The only sure thing about my weeknights are: commute for at least an hour, followed by a nap or dinner (or both, most likely).

Then quite often most of my evening is enjoying an online game with friends or watching Youtube videos (that aren't tutorials or software related) or engaging in online discussion. I'll maybe do 30 minutes of a side project if it's not too late by the time I feel up to it.

I'm not an individual that can pour my heart and soul into my code at work for 8 hours a day and then follow it up with a night of productivity; I'm usually quite exhausted by the time the evening rolls around.

I'm more or less the same way. I'm pretty worn down by the end of the day, but sometimes I do get that spark of wanting to work on something. It only lasts for about 30 to 60 minutes, though. Glad someone else feels the same way.
