What Do You Do When Thoroughly Bored?

Fri Jan 19, 2007 6:40 pm

Ok, so I'm thoroughly bored at the moment. And I don't know what to do.

School hasn't started so I can't study for anything that also means I don't have any homework.  sad 

I don't really feel like playing flight simulator, I'm not a great fan of tennis so I can't watch the Australian open. I don't know what to do.

So what do you do when your bored?

Grab the camera and a good book, go out in the country, find a good peaceful area, read, take pictures, and nap against a tree. Or there is always the infamous food road trip (from STL-MEM for lunch; Lebanon, NH-YUL for lunch; STL-Chicago for dinner; STL-MCI for lunch and dinner; DAL-AUS for dinner). Grab a book of poetry by someone like Robert Frost, head to a park, read, and let your imagination run wild. It's amazing where your mind will take you if you let it!

If I was your age I would be outdoors 18 hours a day as I did when I was a boy. I lived in the Eastern part of Barbados and had very few people around me, so we fished,played cricket, hiked, built rafts to go sailing on the Atlantic ocean and many other thing including having bomb fires on the beach every evening, where boy met girl. But I lived in Noah's time when such things as computers etc were unheard off

one thing that's great for boredom is cycling. there's something about that repetitive action that just gets all of the frustration out of your system. also seeing the world on two wheels can be a real pleasure...

Well maybe, I'm assuming from a sane person, those 2 would be sex and booze. Sex, I'm a little too young to get into a serious relationship worthy of sex. Booze, everything in moderation, not sure if you've seen how bad binge drinking is over here.
