I feel like here is the moment in which you will find yourself having to balance your job with making learning a sort of job as well. To keep your skills (as fresh as you can), I'd say you have to map out weekly goals on your projects. You'll find what works for you and as soon as you do, see if there's anything you can do to help automate your work currently.
Setting up deadlines helps you continue to push the your knowledge at a pace you'll learn to set for yourself and maybe push toward a little more growth :)
Good luck and congrats on your first job!! Don't forget to celebrate that.
