My weeks used to be 50 to 90 hours for 10+ years; so you're looking at 10 to 40 hours of extra curricular activities per week. My weeks are 40 now, unless someone is willing to pay me more to work additional; and that does happen too frequently. Holidays last for at least 2 weeks twice a year. Life is too short to chase every technology. Life is too short to spend most of it in front of a computer or even TV monitor.
