    What do you do with your spare time?

    Lately all I do when i'm not in class or work is sleep, watch TV or spend hours on the internet. I've only noticed it lately but when I think about it, I've never really done anything else with my free time. But I'm getting bored, and frustrated with it now and I'm starting to panic because i'm taking a gap year and worried that I won't be able to find anything to do.

    So yeah, what do you do when you aren't working or in college?

    i'm the same way. it's sad because i feel like my life is going by and i'm not doing anything but sitting in class or on the internet. ha
    i wish i had something to contribute to this thread. i think i'm going to start reading again when this semester is over. it's hard to read books during the semester! i also think working out is a good habit.

    aren't working OR in college? jesus i'd go crazy. i'd most likely end up starting a business out of sheer boredom. i can't not do anything productive for longer than 3-4 days.

    in my spare time i usually:
    -read
    -make crafty things
    -drink
    -go for jogs/bike rides/walks
    -do online classes/tutorials
    -lurk message boards and news sites
    -read wikipedia articles
    -talk to people online
    -watch tv

    I tend to work really intensely on things for 6-7 hours and then take 1-2 hour breaks where I am so burnt out all I can do is surf the internet or watch really mindless television. My job in the summer is totally mindless, so I tend to use my free time for more productive things, like improving my website, drawing, and reading.

    internet!

    also read, do crafty things, clean out my room/ closet, go to the park, drive somewhere with just my camera and take pictures. sometimes i go to the pet store and stare at fish. and recently, i've been taking the metro by myself into dc to shop and eat and walk around and people watch and go to museums because even though i've been there a million times in my life, it's become my favorite way to clear my head. cities are so oddly relaxing. and the stores are huge.
    LAUREN!

    Youtube and Netflix, Read, Play Disc Golf, Go Hiking, Swimming, and Canoeing, Re Organize my room/Bathroom, Treat myself to a spa day (Did that today actually), Sew, go out and take pictures, Stumbleupon.com, Cracked.com, Go to the library, Go to one of the 15 or so parks here, Go to the junk/antique stores, go to the "mall" (It's now Tennessee's biggest flea market), Go fishing, Take my little sister out for ice cream or scavenger hunts around town, and other big sister little sister bonding things haha, Hang out with my brother and our friends and my bf. Etc, etc.
    That's pretty much what I do in my spare time.
