As for me, I go out of my apartment. I either meet up with friends, go to the mall, watch a movie or two, eat out, go to a spa or shop, depending on my budget, of course. :) I also surf the net. I do anything that comes to mind just to beat boredom, especially on my days off from work.

I think, we can do many things to get rid of boredom. For me, i will call some old friends and invite them drop to my home accompany me, or just hanging out with them, eat, watching a movie (like you do^_^). Other alternatives, i will consider of cooking some delicious food (at least for me it is delicious haha), or maybe gardening. Doing mylot also can make me forget my boredom.

I have been trying to learn how to cook and I can say that it's like a stress- therapy, just like gardening. Unfortunately, I don't have a green thumb like my mom, and I don't have a place to garden, too, because I live in an apartment. With cooking, I'm thankful to have Food Network channel. I'm also not a good cook, unlike my dad and my brother, but like what I said, I'm learning..or at least I'm trying (lol!)..

Nowadays, it's really hard to get hold of my friends because our work schedules are really different. I have fixed days-off and those are during weekends, while my friends' days-off vary ever so often. That's why sometimes, I have to be content being with no one but myself because I don't have a choice. There are times that it's just all right because I get to spend time for myself and do whatever I want, but of course, I also feel bored. Good for you, if you always spend your free time with your friends. ^_^
