I did PR work, but I had to stop when my free time ran too low.

Definitely not! :) 

Wasting time is when I think afterwards "I should have done something else 
during the last few hours" :) 

One example is getting caught by some news and reading up on it until I'm 
reading stuff which is only barely related but still interesting - but which 
just isn't important for other stuff I do. Somehow it's hard to describe how 
"useful reading" and "mostly useless reading" differ from each other. 

Reading fantasy and science fiction is useful for example, because I feel more 
alive after I read them.

I think that counts as "almost all his life" :)

Then let's just see where it goes - I'll try to avoid possibly wrong 
expectations :)
