Syncopation has nothing to do with this entry. It's just a great word.

The day job though. Man, how do people balance stuff out when they have a day job, and are also trying to cultivate their creative endeavours? On top of that I have a dog that needs attention, and a gym membership. And I'm still trying to make friends in New York. How do you manage it all? Networking, I guess, will be key, but when is there time for that? I mean, I work full time. I am lucky in that I have the ability to maintain web access and such from there, so at the very least I can deal with the blog and myspace stuff from there, but I'm not able to work on the art there. So seriously, how do people balance it all?
