What do you do when your bored?

Sun Jun 03, 2012 6:57 pm

In light of the dumpy economy, and it being too cold to take the JetSki to the lake up in McCall, Idaho, I've found myself bored to the point that I've come across these ridiculous series of videos on YouTube formally label as YouTube Poop. I am watching the Zelda and Mario series right now. So, what does everyone else do in their free time when they are extremely bored? I suppose I could start a list, kind of like the "What are you drinking right now", list, to continue on until it is 100 pages of forums and growing. So, if your bored, what do you do?

When I'm truly bored I go walk about on the mountain sides I have out back. Visit the bears and watch nature do her thing. Always fixes my down moods.

Time to find a creative hobby. Draw. Play an instrument. Make something out of clay. All of those can be done for very little money.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.

I was thinking of taking up Warhammer or D&D, maybe Magic: The Gathering, but nobody in this area plays those games that I know of. They have tournaments in Boise, which is only an hour and 30 minute drive. Hmmmm, I will have to search some more on that in my area I suppose.

...who has time to be bored? House repairs, working out, video games, pets, kid on the way...

I just gave up WoW a few weeks ago and it's really messing me up. Don't miss my games much, but miss my friends. Having a hard time replacing the time spent there with something else that interests me.

Yeah, I haven't been bored in years. Try a kid, no room for being bored any more. Then toss some property onto the pile. Next thing you know you cant sleep for worry of all the outstanding things you have to do.

1. Go for a walk if the weather is good.
2. Listen to podcasts, usually non-tech. Some nice ones include Snap Judgement (NPR) and All in the Mind (Australian Broadcasting Corp).
3. Listen to music.
4. Read a book. Next on my list: This is your brain on music.

Ponder on ways to turn the whole world into a single city like Coruscant. Things would be so much better then. Of course, we need to invent some Jedi Knights first...

Watch game of thrones season 2 episode ten and get excited because Daenerys has stopped being such a whiny bitch finally. Though then get sad that I have to wait a while before season 3 to find out what happens next!

"Bored" is just another word for "needs to pick up some new hobbies".

1 scoop of C4 and some heavy ass weights. After than a hot shower, cold beer, and a nice mellow bowl. Then a beastly dinner and videogames/netflix for the evening. Possibly some cleaning if it needs done. With my round trip time of 1.5 hours for work each day, by the time I'm done working out I have 3 hours or less worth of "free time" supposing household chores don't need done. I'm starting the paleo diet at month's end (moving in the mean time) so there'll be more time needed to prep delicious meats each day. Also, reddit.
