My "job" has me traveling a lot, I take my laptop & 3DS with me to occupy my time while in hotels, I try to squeeze out a few hours a week in SWTOR

The most important bit is, don't procrastinate.

I'm a single woman and I'm fairly young at 24, I don't have kids and I work full-time. I play swtor a lot now.

I work 40 hours a week, but here's the kicker, I only work 4 10 hour shifts so I get three days off and after work some nights too. I'm completely content.

As others have said, I have also found it to be much easier to find time for gaming post-university. At uni, especially at a high level of study, there is always something else you are supposed to be doing. Your thesis never…goes…away. Even if you manage to find some time for gaming (or anything else), it’s hard to indulge without feeling guilty and this really detracts from the experience anyway. You end up giving up and going back to work, having not even enjoyed yourself in the interim.

Now that I’m working a standard job, work stays at work and my time outside of it feels like my own again. I play for around 30 hours a week now, and still have time to study part-time, volunteer, and (on occasion) service my social life.

Oh, and having a husband/wife also playing the game definitely helps!

work: 8-430
gym: 500:630
Time w/ family: 630-900
PvP: 900-1100

Weekend obviously a bit more time gaming, plus other hobbies... it isn't too hard.
