Case in point: I have really got myself in the mood to start programming again, this time, for serious. My main goal for now is to churn out some sort of game, one that's complicated enough to teach me but simple enough to be completed. The goal says nothing about making a good game, however. I have a great idea for a game I would like to start on after this project, when I feel comfortable enough with my skills to tackle such a project.
I'd also like to get into Youtube rant style videos, so I'm trying to come up with ideas for that and get over my camera-shyness.
However, all of this conflicts with my daily activities. College is actually fairly work-heavy this semester, and I feel like I'm overloaded. Some days I just want to come home and Reddit, or play Dark Cloud 2 (a PS2 game I'm finally trying to finish, some seven years or so later). I have the motivation, but it directly conflicts with my laziness. Ah, but life's a bitch.
I have so much to do, so I much I want to do, and I can't do it all at once. And I want to do them all so badly (or need to do them urgently, such as, for an example, an English essay I should be typing right now instead of this) that my wants conflict with each other! Let me read this programming book, type the example in, compile it, see if it works... try to tweak it a little bit to see if I can apply what I've learned successfully and - OH WAIT! I just had an amazing idea for my novel! I should stop this and go work on that right away!
You see what I'm getting at here. Life is strange.
