Serbian term or phrase: Чини се да сам стално заузет поред других
This is from an online survey into space time.

I am not sure what is meant here (doh!). 'Pored' is clear enough in most contexts but here it seems a little odd.

It seems that I am always busy with other people / ...always busy not with other people (grubo govoreci)

It seems that I'm always busy with people around
Explanation:
Pored is really odd here, but that's how surveys are - odd stuff all around. The sence has a very braod meaning, and this would do. The following could also be a good solution:

It seems that I'm always busy, always around people

The sence has a very braod meaning - I'm sorry, this came out really stupid :-)))). I meant to say that "pored" used in this way in the sentence has a very broad meaning; therefore the translation has to have also the broadest possible meaning.
