    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.

    Bzzzz

    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!

    Okay, I have to keep busy.

    That is best cure. Oh! And visualisation! That is also very useful!

    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

    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...

    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...
