To get by while you wait, consider doing leves. They are some of the best things to level off of for gathering. Gathering is probably the slowest of the leveling in 14 right now. And considering the volume that you will be gathering in, it will be hard to sell all of the stuff you get. So, doing leves helps in that the items you get automatically get turned into the leve for the reward, so your inventory isn't cluttered, and you get great exp for gathering attempts, and better experience on completion.
