As time flows and we grow older, the number of activity increases and sometime we can’t sort some moment for small things even for ourselves. At a certain age, it makes us bore to sit idly in our place doing nothing but relax. Sometimes we like to work out the schedule all by ourselves though in the presence of ample helping hands. It is how we mark ourselves ‘busy.’
