It's a good time this after-submission phase. It's "live in the moment" time for me. I get assigned tasks for one-two days. I like completing steps one at a time without going into the bigger picture and scary deadlines for a while. I enjoy the learning it involves.
I enjoy the entire process of cooking: right from picking ingredients, planning a dish and the actual process. It may not always turn out great but its fun. And even more fun to cook in partnership :)
I enjoy the gym and yoga classes as per convenience and choice. I enjoy the freedom of time...free evenings, weekends....no burdens!
Time for family. Time for tv. Time for reading. Time for "me".
