Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 135 People

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

    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!
