What would you do?

What would you do if you had all the time in the world? What are those things you say you wish you had time for but never do? And would you really do them if you had the chance?
For me, the number one thing is reading. There are so many books that I say I wish I had time to read, I complain abut my busy schedule and long for the days when I had the freedom to just curl up on the couch and enjoy a good book. But when vacation actually comes, do you do those things? Or do you find yourself putting them off for the next vacation?
I'm facing this very question. I am going to be staying at my dad's house for the next month or so. What do I do with all the free time on my hands? I have 8 or 9 boxes of books that I could go through, half of them have barely been touched. I could work on my writing, since as evidenced by my blog, I love to write but could use a little work on the art of writing. I could volunteer at a local organization, especially seeing as my masters is in urban ministry and I am next to San Francisco. I could hang out in my dad's neighborhood which is almost all Mexican and practice my Spanish before I go to a country where no one will speak it.
Or I could do nothing but lie out in the sun and sleep.
I think the answer lies in the middle somewhere. I plan on continuing my Korean lessons since that seems like a pretty important part of moving to Korea. But other than that, I think I will do a little of all of the above.
