What with grad school and my full time job, there was never a day that I didn't have to work on SOMETHING. Now that the semester is over, though*, I actually have a day where I don't HAVE to do anything!

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THIS. What do people DO all day? I've thought about pickling some beets, or maybe sorting my camera collection for a yard sale, or starting a database of everything I own, or writing the great American novel ... I don't know how to have down time anymore. It feels so WEIRD to not be frantically busy.

*not that I don't actually have plenty of work to do over the summer ... my thesis work still needs love. But I don't have a "real" scheduled class or anything.
