I am not really an outdoor person. I go on vacation trips every once in a while because it is sort of expensive. Aside from going out and spend, I believe I can also enjoy a lot of things at home such as cooking my favorite dish, cook for my partner, my lotting, and of course dvd marathon. If you were to take out the option of enjoying life in the outside world, what do you think will be the things that you will be enjoying doing at home?

I'm a home person too. I don't like going out much and only go on maybe one or two vacations per year. I enjoy getting online at home. I also like to cook for my hubby and experiment. When the house needs cleaning and organizing, I like to do that first so I can relax later. Relaxing consists of getting online, eating, watching a movie, or reading a book. I believe there needs to be a somewhat of a balance to my day or else I'll spend too much time with housework and have no time to relax. On the other hand, I don't want to relax for too terribly long or nothing gets done around the house! LOL Great discussion.

Actually I agree with you. I also have the same way of relaxing such as eating, watching dvd's and reading a book. Before I used to read a lot but when I started working, my means of relaxation is watching a "feel good" movie with my hubbie while we're on the bed and I am so much satisfied.

I definitely know what those "feel good" movies are like - I love them! It's always great when there's a happy ending too. There's nothing better than sitting with the hubby and watching a good movie. Thanks for sharing!

Well theres various things depending on your interests... i would watch movies... maybe go out and rent some ... do some crafts... read... internet lol... play board games... but the best thing is to do something that is fun but something that would benefit you later on in life something productive... maybe learing something new... reading a book to gain some knowlegde on something you like... or doin some crafts to sell... who knows maybe you'll find it really fun!!! good luck

Wow! I used to be into crafts way back elementary and high school. But when I turned College, I was so much into going out to bars and more night outs with friends. At present I enjoy drinking and chilling at home and inviting some friends over rather than going out because it's cheaper and anytime my friends and I could always get drunk.

at home, i enjoy reading newspapers, magazines, the bible and listening to music and watching tv programmes. i like cooking, so i cook dishes that my family enjoys. i set and rearrange the dining table to give it a differnt setting and ambience.yes, an element of surprise. i even change our dining plates, cups etc. i like to do inventory checking and anything not in use for 6 to 12 months, i record them down. i discuss with my family members what are their views on these items. some we still keep for another 6 months or so and some we give away to relatives, friends, schools, church and charities. i also like to rearrange our family photos and other paintings that are hung on the walls and on table tops and shelves. you know, after arranging i feel very satisfied when my family members noticed the new look. at times i rearrange the furnitures in my house from one place of the room to the other end. it takes quite alot of effore but its worth it. in my gardens, i have plots for herbs and vegetables, green and flowering plants of many hues and colours. the differnt flowering plants bring colours to my garden and compound. its a sight to behold when the flowers are in bloom and dancing in the wind. i have fruit trees and the ripe red rambutans look so inviting on the trees. the squirrels and birds come and share the fruits too. i do exercise in my garden and yes do dancing too. haha. yes there are alot of things that i enjoy doing at home.

as for me, i guess best thing is to browse internet at home, with internet you can do a lot of things while sitting specially if you feel so bored, you can chat with friends, play games, interact with other members like here in mylot. share and read discussion. though i know theres a lot of things to do at home but since i live alone and i only live in a single room then what i can do is just to open my computer after cleaning my room and doing my laundry.

home - There are alot of things to do at home.
We travels like two to three times in a year going to other state or other country.I enjoy going out like shopping and visiting beautiful places that i have never been during summer.I work alot of hours so i go out during my days off.Sometimes i don't feel going out and i just stay home all day like today.Its my day off.I suppose to be at the mall but just get tired going there once or twice a week.I love cooking too and baking as well.I got alot of recipe books here.Aside from doing that, i also enjoy watching movies at home.I also work online.There are alot of things to get busy so i won't feel bored just staying home sometimes.

i'm an outdoor person. i enjoy going out a lot. at least used to... but not anymore. i used to enjoy the pleasure of seeing faces of strangers. i used to sit in a cafe or bar for long hours with my friends just hanging out and enjoying a fun filled chat. before 4 hours is the maximum hours i'm at home. either i'm just sleeping or just went home to take a shower or grab a meal -- then i'm off to my paradise again. that was the person i used to be. but now that i am married ;) ... i have a different perspective towards these things. thru my wife i realized that it's not so bad staying home and there are actually numerous things one can enjoy within the comfort of his home.

When I'm at home I usually work on school or play computer games. I'm not an outdoor person either, but it's really enjoyable to take a vacation once in a while, even though it costs some money.

I would love to surf in the net, update my accounts, blogs, mylotting etc. I would create some art whether photoshop or free-hand drawing, read magazines and books, watch tv shows and dvds, play the guitar, and go to kitchen anytime and drink and and eat something. Lovely life! ^_^

I like to read books, mainly travel guides and novels. I enjoy playing games with my children. I like caring for my two dogs. When I feel stressed I have a hot bath which makes me more relaxed. I like to go on to the Internet to look at sites like My Lot for example. I enjoy taking my dogs out for walks. In my neighborhood there is countryside and a few miles away is the coast. I love going out for days to interesting and scenic destinations. One of my top hobbies is traveling to different countries. In my home I have many souvenirs from my travels like my photos and collection of costume dolls.

I am not an outdoor person too. I'd rather stay home and watch DVD movies or search recipes online. I'm also fond of making money online through mylot. Sometimes I get bored too, and that's the time when I go out for a walk.
