I just returned from a month long break, in which I was able to daydream as much as I wanted. I'm now back in my dorm room with zero privacy, and very antsy about trying to settle into the routine I had before leaving. 

Once I've been here for a week or so I know it will wear off, but right now I feel ridiculously smothered by the presence of my roomate, and even just being in different surroundings.

I need to get the edge off but have already been to the gym today and have no projects to work on. I can't wait for class to start.

Boogman, you're really spot on with that. When I went home I did nothing all day every day, when I was stuck in my dorm with a presence that didn't allow me just to daydream, I had to do something else, and wound up actually succeeding in keeping up an exercise routine and overachieved for my classes. I think it's a good thing, but it's pretty stressful at the same time.

I did the dorm thing for one semester in college, I know what you mean. The first few days back were always really anxious, and I was really standoffish with my roommate as a result.

However, I think it was that period in my life where I started directing my daydreaming towards other things. I had no choice but to release my creative outlet in some way, and it was towards stuff like writing, reading, and drawing.

That sounds like a tough readjustment. I was only out a week from work at christmas and it was really hard to get back into the routine, lots of withdrawel type feelings. Going back after a month sounds really hard.
