I Like to Keep Busy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 140 People

    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

    I have stuff to do, and when I don't have stuff to do, I have stories to write. If not stories, then I have people who need a shoulder and so on!

    I like to keep busy because there's no time to

    be depressed when I have lots to do. When I have stuff to do and take time to exercise and stuff I become more of a genuinely happy person :D doesn't mean I can't be lazy sometimes though o.o

    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...
