i also am interested in how i can use this more in my everyday life
Be Curious and open minded, and have questions lots of questions as i feel druidry is about learning and relating to whats around you and how you are part of it all.
Know and be responsible for yourself. This has been my biggest gift from the course so far, leaning about myself and what makes me tick has helped me sooo much and makes it easier to understand why you do things and where you can do better in relation to yourself and others.
Go outside sniff, touch, feel, explore the world, I also like to do my best for the environment by cleaning up rubbish when i can, i've cut down the amount of meat i eat and if i can afford it i buy organic, I also try to avoid buying stuff too.
Yes that was very helpful the things you do for nature I also do- without thinking about it so maybe that's a part of it. I guess asking other engergies for guidence or assistance would be benifical- may make things easier when trying to work things out! I got to say I'm very impressed that you can do the OBOD course and a degree at the same time! I'm currently doing a degree but there is no way I could do that and the OBOD course at the same time!

(Edit: found out how much it cost, for the text, about 300 dollars, which is something I really can not do since I don't get paid that much.)
even though I also draw and play music (on a ocarina) and that also is apart of my life.

For example, I used to hate housework while I considered it divorced from my spiritual and intellectual life. But when I began to use it as a sort of a meditation, and to see it as bringing order and cleanliness into my tiny corner of the universe, it started making more sense, and I can now use it to relax and/or tidy my thoughts as well.
Perhaps that's somewhere in the line of Art's post?

I just count all these little things as practices which I would not drop because of druidry, but connect them to it, as a personal touch. Does it make any sense? Feel free to correct me.
