It seems, at parties especially, that people want to be busy busy busy. They don't really socialize as much. I know a few people that need to be playing a game or something and can't just hang out…Continue

Sometimes I am very busy, and I take example from a country phrase which is "make hay when the sun shines" and do that. I live in one of the busiest areas in a very busy metropolitan city. It is a pleasure to appreciate not being busy when surrounded by so many busy bees! A nice cup of coffee with a friend or a visit to the park is a holiday every time, especially when it's rush hour. A ride on the bike through the busy traffic and away to the parklands and trails is hard to beat for saying "see you later Busy".

I know, its a terrible thing.  To make it worse, school is done in 2 weeks, so I'll really have to bust ass.  Just thinking about it is almost too much energy expended.

No, I didn't know there was such an art; but now that I do...

I actually chose history because I just really love history.  I could see it being lots of work fo rsome people, but I just love and don't find it too difficult.  The english/composition related courses are the ones I find more difficult, becuase I mostly read non-fiction.  Now ask me to read fiction and poetry and interpret it, and I'll have a littel difficulty.  I do right good papers though.  I want to get into some type of writing/editing/research career.

But have you perfected the art of selecting the courses with the least work?  Was a history major myself.

OK, I'll give a proper introduction.  I'm 19, a freshman in college, with a history major and english minor.  I have a good work ethic, but that doesn't keep me from detesting too much busyness and running around all over the world.  My idea of a good vacation is staying at home and relaxing.

So nice to see a group dedicated to idleness. A very important thing to develop in these tedious times of work etc

Here is a link to an article on the Professional Porch Sitters Union, a somewhat tongue-in-cheek organization founded in 1999 by Claude Stephens of Louisville, Ky.  I can't imagine what their dues would be or what bearing a sit-down strike could have on all professional porch sitters, but it seems pretty cool:
