Recent (and always) recurring thought - It's really a bummer that we spend so much of our lives "at work", where work is something that doesn't _really_ benefit ourselves or the general population all that much. All the talk of robotic automation and basic income is really exciting, but I don't suspect that I will get to benefit from it in my lifetime. 

Lately I've been feeling like I'm making some headway in songwriting, but there's just not enough time. I get like 4 hours after work to do anything, and there's usually housework/maintenence/etc that needs to get done in that time too. Maybe I will feel like I have more time after this June race is done and I can quit training for it / worrying about it.

Being paid to do work which is neither personally satisfying nor generally beneficial is a very frustrating part of this system we live in. It's of course better to be paid for anything than have no income at all, but it is a stressor definitely. The worst thing emotionally is to have to do work which one knows to be directly harmful. But for whatever systemic reason it seems there is always more money in ethically questionable work than unquestionably good stuff.
