Yes..When I have spare time.. I apparently live in magical unicorn land as some people mention. We have project days.. At best, it's team project not directly related to running the business. At worst, its playing with new technologies for potential future use in running the business at will.. sometimes its scheduled time, sometimes its when the backlog is light.

This month it is scheduled team time skunkworking with a new stack. Before that, it was "go thru some udemy videos and make something"

I dont go writing games or have pet projects. I dont care to write "personal" code much or if at all anymore. I didnt freelance work on work time or resources. But I havent had a freelance project in a good 4 years now. My passion for the craft has waned in recent years for various reasons.
