    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

    Overall I Do...At Times I Don't Though

    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...
