I am just over 2 weeks away from finishing my first year of teaching. I have successfully passed and am a fully qualified teacher. Ironically even though this year has been harder and busier than last year (my PGCE), I have somehow managed to find more time for my hobby. Go figure. I have played 6 wargames in the last few months. That is more than I have played in the entire time previous to that while blogging. I have always been leading up to playing a game...just need more scenery...just finish that tank... Maybe I needed to find a genre I love, or a rule set I love. Maybe I just needed more time?
As it happens the whole 6mm sci fi journey has been going on for nine months, and I have accomplished more with this than my WW2 wargaming (four games since Feb 2013) and my Song of Blades and Heroes gaming (zero games).
Last night I started reading through my copy of Clash on the Fringe and think I will try setting up a game or two of that over the summer.
In all, I think time pressure and focus has led me to make good progress with my hobby.
