What would you do?

Imagine that you could pause time at will, stopping everyone and everything, except for you. You could go anywhere, do anything, and nobody else would remember what you did once you resumed time. (for your convenience, electricity would continue to run and the television would keep going as if time had not stopped). HOW WOULD YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS POWER?
If you had this power, would you use it to get more sleep in the morning?
Would you use it to do or catch up on your work or schoolwork?
If you used this power to get ahead in school or work, how would you feel about your success?
indifferent- I'd be focussing on other parts of my life
Do you think there would be any way to save people's lives or help other people by using this power, assuming all changes you make to your surroundings during this time would be erased once you resumed time and you would be transported back to where you started?
yes, I could find people who were in trouble and try to save them once time resumed
