A Lot of Time to Think

I don't think I've ever been so busy in my life, but at the same time so... idle. It's a strange combo to have, but life is so much different back at home and away from the dorm rooms, the class lectures, and friends. I'm working 40 hours a week, 8 hour days which seem to take up pretty much my entire day since I'm normally scheduled around noon. Although I love being able to work and save up for the next few years, I know I had a lot more free time while I was in college, even while working part time.
But today is my day off, part of my weekend, and this is where the feeling of idleness comes into play. At school, I'd normally be doing something on my weekends, whether that be working on some paper I procrastinated on during the week, or spending time hanging out (or going out) with friends. There was always something I could be doing. At home, this isn't quite the case. When I'm not working, I'm usually just at home not doing anything. As much as I appreciate the occasional breather where I can just relax and not have to worry about anything, it can become rather redundant after awhile. I need to accomplish something, or at least find some excuse to get out of the house. It would be much easier if I didn't live in a small town 30 minutes away from pretty much everything. I know I'll figure out something... eventually.
