40 Fun Things To Do!

Hi guys!

 I know, I've been gone for sooo long! My last post was 6 months ago! Even though I had promised myself I would try to commit to this blog and keep posting frequently over a long period of time, a lot of things got in the way. Mostly procrastination, family matters, relationship matters... studying... pffft! Yeah, right! (ok, but in all seriousness, college is quite demanding when it comes to studying, you know.)

  Well, the important thing is that I'm back. :)

  And since my boyfriend recently initiated a new project and is planning to start making youtube videos with a friend, I thought that I should have something equally creative to spend a part my time doing as well. Who knows, maybe I'll end up making videos too someday. If I'm not too lazy and bored, that is.

  Speaking of boredom...this post's purpose is to introduce a few ways to deal with boredom as it is a devastating disease that keeps spreading and concerns all of us!

  As for me personally, I am generally a lazy person, but only when it comes to work or school-related (college-related, nowadays) things or chores that my parents want me to finish (like tidy my room or clean the toilet). Though lately I've been having those days where I wake up and I sit in front of my laptop and just stare at the screen for 20 minutes trying to decide what to do, but realizing that I'm too bored to actually do anything. And it annoys me when I think about how many things I could possibly have done instead of wasting my time unproductively.

  As a result of this annoyance, I decided to create a list of suggestions, just in case any of you guys happen to have one of those days where nothing seems interesting. Surely there should be something among those 40 things that you'll find appealing!

Here is a list of 40 fun things to do when you're bored:
(some of the colored words are links to other sites)

1. Watch a movie (don't forget to make some popcorn!)

2. Read a book (while drinking tea/hot chocolate/coffee and listening to the sound of the rain)

4. Read a Manga or watch an Anime

5. Cook/Learn a new recipe

6. Watch funny Youtube Videos
