I'm going to spend my extra time saying hi to my neighbor's cats, although according to xkcd it will take me 2 months to get my time back.

I really struggle with finding mentorship. I'm a freelancer so I spend a lot of time working by myself, and in the midwest, there's no obvious place for me to go and find mentorship.

Meetups perhaps, meet other tech folks and build relationships. If there isn't one around you, host it. One piece of advice I read recently, "If you want to network with people, be the one who hosts the meeting."

I'm not sure if co-working spaces facilitate discussions but there's that too.

Look for local volunteer non-profit/civic tech groups like @codeforamerica brigades.
