The right snake for me?

It's been a while since I've had a snake, my first snake was a ball python, and I've lately been thinking about getting a snake again. The only issue is, I have no clue which would be right for me.
I'm home for weekends and I'm only at school for 6 hours on a weekday so I'll have time to handle the snake.
I have room for at most an 80 gallon terrarium.
I don't want a snake that's super "wiggly", a chill snake would be nice that moves a bit. I don't mind feeding any size rodent whether it's live or frozen thawed. I can't own a venomous snake and I don't really want one venomous either. If there's anymore questions I need to answer just tell me and I'll reply.
I've been looking at ball pythons and Brazilian rainbow boss but I'd like to find out about other snakes

Red Tails are my favorite, they get big but easy to manage in my opinion. Super chill snakes too. Just buy from a reputable breeder.

Re: The right snake for me?

There's so many snakes that loosely fit your requirements that it is perhaps better to at least get to a shortlist.

Are there any that you've always be interested in or have a look through the forums and find some that you like the look of.

I have an eclectic mix of species that I've essentially stumbled across over time and ended up acquiring together with some from a longstanding wishlist.
0.1 B imperator, 1.0 M spilota harrisoni, 1.0 C hortulanus, 2.1 P reticulatus (Madu locality), 1.1 S amethystine, 1.1 L olivaceous, 1.0 C angulifer, 1.0 Z persicus, 0.1 P regius, 0.1 N natrix, 0.1 E climacophora, 1.0 P obsoletus, 0.1 L geluta nigrtia, 1.0 P catenifer sayi, 1.0 T lepidus
