If you’ll recall, I had a realization a few months ago that I have been a student forever. You’ll probably also remember my P.B.D. Well, I realized not that long ago that I may be suffering from BWS (busy-ness withdrawal syndrome).
See, I’ve been busy most of my life. School, work, hobbies, extra-circular activities, etc. Now that I’m FINALLY finished with school, I have none of that. I work and I come home. It’s been very difficult for me to find things to occupy my time from 4:30 pm until bed time. So, I’ve found a few new hobbies. I’ve joined a book club, started baking bread, began jogging/walking with my dogs for very long distances, taken to cleaning my house slightly obsessively, and started knitting.
It occurs to me that I may be doing to many things, that maybe I should just relax and enjoy the time spent doing nothing. But I can’t. I’m not sure if that’s bad or just me… one thing I do know is that I need to work on getting some age appropriate hobbies. Seriously, baking bread and knitting?!? How did this happen? When did I get old?
