Being Busy

The other thing about being busy is, that even though the whole time that you are busy you are very aware of all the fun (and perhaps important) things you are turning your back on, the first day you get when you aren't busy (like a Good Friday off work without pay), you have no idea what to do with yourself. There are 100 things you could do, but you are kind of in shock to find that your schedule isn't determined by people other than yourself. You haven't agreed to anything, and so nothing will happen unless you choose something and do it. In the meantime, you've more than used up the emotional energy required to do fun stuff without a heavy structure and big agenda. Or maybe that's just me.
