how i spend my time…

I have recently finished semester one and since I have no exams have had a fair bit of time to myself and to fill in the days I’ve started on some projects that I have had lined up. The first being making a film clip for a song that my friend and I recorded when I was in Queensland last holidays. It took me about a day and a half to get it all sorted out and now I have a nice and moderatly cool video that I have produced (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJF3CnxK2w0  if you’re keen). But i was wondering if this is actually effective use of my time – is it any better than watching tv, playing a computer game or reading a book? I tried to justify it to myself that it is refreshing my memory of the tools that i used in media production and that I am improving my multimedia skills – but in all honesty i very much doubt I will ever be employed in the video clip making industry. Even if it isn’t doing much good, it is a harmless enough hobby and certainly helps to pass the time. I”ve already got another clip or two lined up to do next…
