I usually go on here or one of my other forums. but mostly i'll clean, watch tv., or play an online game. I like playing with my kids too so i'll bring them outside so they can play with the dog in the front yard.

When I have a lot or too much free time and I search for something to do, I find myself wanting to talk to friends. Usually people only hang out but never really talk about things any longer. For many reasons, we feel like we're bothering people when talking about our own problems, we feel weak for even bringing up the idea that you're having troubles, or we don't trust people. I suggest that any dull moment be turned into a time where you develop bonds with people you know.

I typically do spend most of my time with my PC everyday doing everything I think possible doing online. But dullness sometimes strikes me as well. Usually when I get bored it's either I wanted to take a nap or grab something to eat and or have a coffee break. Coffee has been a part of my system. It helps me fight my boredom!

Actually, I resort to surfing the internet, updating my blog and then after I exhaust myself to all of these internet activities, I sit on a couch and watch TV programs. Eat and Sleep after. LOL. But a stroll with friends will be the best solution to my boredom. :)

I too, never find myself with "nothing to do". I will jump at the chance to read either a book, a magazine or online pages. I also watch films from Netflix or listen to good online sermons.

When I am bored and have nothing to do, I usually get on the computer and surf the net. Sometimes I get on mylot to try to find a good discussion to participate in. Other times, I just listen to music since I like to dance and I just couldn't go a day without music anyway. As a last resort, I'll try to find some television shows to watch. TV isn't all that great. There is nothing on but reality shows mostly.

Funny the way I live at the moment there is always too much too do, it's more a question of what next? how to get thru everything.What I do now and what I leave till later.

I used to just keep surfing through TV channels or listening to music. Now that I have found mylot, I hardly get that feeling of boredom. Time just flies when I log in here.
