    So yeah, last year I basically spent adjusting to the whole post-university 9-5 schedule and, for the most part, resting in between.

    One thing I'm realizing though is that now I'm in this rut - it's hard to get out of!

    Stupid question really but I thought perhaps some of you folks might have some interesting ideas on new things I might go and try.

    Hmmm. The year after I graduated college I worked night crew at a grocery store for about 45 hours a week. You know what cured my dilema? I saved up my money and sold some paintings, quit, moved to a nice place with low rent, and have worked maybe 5 months total in the past two years. I've heard of other people doing that as well; work a lot, then take as much time off as possible. It's not for everyone, but it's great for me. Or switch your schedule around if possible-that's always fun.

    And if all else fails, become rich and famous.
  4. Travel. I repeat, travel.
  5. The answer is either wear sunscreen or drink beer, I guess it just depends on whether or not you like Dennis Leary.
