it seems that all i have been doing lately is either watching tv or reading. i really love doing both of those, but i need something new to do to get me out into the world, or at least to make me feel like i have accomplished something. any suggestions?
You should check out the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. It gives you something to do and makes you feel good to give back to a kid that that needs someone to do little things with and look up to.
When I had time to do it, it was a lot of fun and we did silly things together. It made me feel good about me, and who would have thunk the little bugger actually liked to be around me. We still chat to this day.
