Ah, your first experience since childhood actually doing something in life, not just sitting around board, filling your time with what you've been shown that you should be doing... Sucks, doesn't it? The best thing is just try to ignore it. Sitting around at work all day doing the same crap, then going home and sitting on the couch all night doing the same crap isn't going to leave you fulfilled if you think about it. Try not to think about it. Ignorance is bliss.

Otherwise maybe buy a small piece of property in the woods within a couple hours drive and start building yourself something on the weekends? Get something with a creek and build a tiny cabin out of scrap wood and plant a garden? Get into a cool, but cheap hobby? That can be tough since hobbies have a way of getting expensive. What kind of stuff do you like to do? Basically think about what would be actually living to you, and try to add that to your life in some way? Personally, I think that's where the balance lies in our current society.

But I think most people just manage not to think about it too much, focus on something else to avoid that emptiness, get meds from a psychiatrist to cope, etc.
