Nothing To Do

Mary Wilson Little

"There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is in having lots to do and not doing it."

I discovered this truth while at college when I was all done with finals awaiting my departure from campus for winter or summer break. All of the activities and distractions that were so wonderful at times when I had papers, labs and studying nagging at my conscience were completely boring and uninteresting when I had nothing to do but sit around and wait. It was even worse when I would finish my finals 1-3 days before all of my friends because they were still in the frantic mode when a round of indoor-wiffle-ball was the best thing imaginable.
