I have always been interested in drawing, and I'm pretty good at it. I want to sign up for a drawing class that starts at 6pm on two weeknights. The problem is, I'm usually at work until 6 or 6:30 pm. I guess I am looking for advice: do you think it's fair enough for me to ask my boss if I can leave work at 5:30 pm 2 nights a week? My company/schedule is pretty structured, so this would definitely be out of the ordinary - but one of my 2019 resolutions is to try to devote more time to some of the hobbies that make me happy - so I'd really like to try to make this work. But I don't want to come across as not being devoted to my job!
