I Like to Keep Busy

    Since my job came to an end

    because the company couldn't keep several contracts, I've been keeping myself busy. Firstly, I've been helping out at the synagogue. There are several women who clean all the rooms when they are vacant, and work cooking for older members of the temple. I'm also going to the...

    I love being busy! Especially

    when I have lots of stuff to do. I just loved that feeling! I might say that I hate doing the stuff I must do, but at my heart, I love being busy! Being busy makes me forget about the things that I fear or hate. It makes me forget about the things that is making me paranoid. I...

    I had an awful weekend,

    being lazy, watching series, bingeing until I got sick. Now I'm working so I can't binge or do anything else, which is good. Until 5pm at least. Then I'll have to find something else to keep me busy. It's hard when you have no interests. I'm so pathetic

    It seems like I either have an incredible amount of free time or I'm always busy. Hardly does there seem to be an in between. Overall I prefer to keep busy though that way I don't get bored and that way I also feel like I'm at least being somewhat productive. The only downside to...

    I don't know specifically why.

    Being busy just keeps me going and it motivates me somehow. I feel relaxed when i know what to do and when to do it. But when i don't have anything to do i get confused and end up feeling sad because i was not doing my best. Being productive also makes me really happy.
