I'm bored. Bored, bored, bored. I shouldn't be bored, today is a day off. I should be rejoicing. It's not like I want to be at work. It's just that I've done all the cleaning stuff... if I had any backbone, I'd clean out my closet, but I don't want to. But I can't really think of what I'd rather be doing. I'd love to go to the beach, but I just got back from a road trip and the thought of traveling wears me out. I wish I lived at the beach. I wish I had a deck that overlooked the ocean... and, while I'm at it, that there were no sharks.
If you could be doing ANYTHING AT ALL right now, what would you be doing? (Men should temper their answers.)
Don't feel bad! You have every right to not clean your closet! It is a day off!!!! Embrace the day! It is beautiful out here - take a long walk where you can window shop and have an indulgent coffee, if that is your bag. Or, watch episodes of Mad Men, Downton Abbey, or the new season premieres of tv!!!! Or... dare I say, go shopping at a place you know has fabulous sales! Those are the things I would do if I could step guilt-free out of my moment!!!!!!!!! Good luck! I know you will make it count. Remember, happiness is an investment in yourself and will make you more productive tomorrow. Make yourself happy!!!!!
You know what? I have started The Black List and it is quite enjoyable. According to my ads, Camelot is coming to my town and Lancelot appears to have Wolverine style muttonchops. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
Do something that you HAVEN'T done before. (1) Go to a Japanese/Indian restaurant and try something exotic such as spicy tandoori chicken, saba or uni sushi or handroll. (2) Go to an upscale shopping center to get window shop. (3) Go see an artsy, independent film. (4) Go to a bookstore and just browse. (5) Go on a bus ride downtown or better yet, get on a tour bus and see your town like a tourist. (6)Go to a lecture and seminar in any subject or area that interests you. (7) Go to a section of your town that you HAVEN'T been before(granted that the area is safe). (8) Go to a museum.
Since none of these things are available where I live, I would like to offer you some viable alternatives. Maybe they are things you have not done before. 1)Go over to your friend´s house and have an anaconda stew. If the anaconda is all gone, her brother might have brought in another crocodile. 2)Go to the grocery store on the mainland and buy coffee filters. 3) Go sit by the side of the river and watch the boats go by. 4) Take a mototaxi (motorcycle taxi) to a neighborhood that you have not visited before.
I am doing what I want to be doing right now. Its my day off and I love it. The house is a mess haha, and it will just have to stay that way because I am chillin out in total silence , sippin my hot coffee and reading what I feel like reading. Clearing my mind is what I like to do, every time I get the chance. I can hear the birds chirpin , may go give em some bread here in a few minutes, watch em for awhile , come back through my nice, quiet , messy house and do a bit more coffee sippin n reading:)
It is weird, isn't it? The forum is always just a bunch of pixels. Just a bunch of sentences and headings... but behind each one, there's an actual person. Different accents and clothes, different goals... but just like us. It would be nice to reach out and touch... maybe... in some cases maybe not. lol. But instead we just keep throwing out these pixels for someone else to catch.
Why only men? I suddenly have an urge to write something outrageous! I've had one of those days today as well. I started well - putting away all my daughters summer clothes and having a clear out. I now have a pile of clothes on the bedroom floor and for the last few hours I have alternated between the internet and reading a book! Ooops! Personally I feel quite happy about it. To be honest I'm happier reading than just about anything else.
lol. I guess that makes sense. Well I still think you're smart, or maybe it just seems that way comparatively. It's not your fault you make us all look stupid, your job is just to hold up the mirror. Let the chips fall where they may.
Be transported down to Duvall Street in Key West where I could walk into an open air bar and drink a cold beer while listening to a guy with only an acoustic guitar and microphone play rock classics up on stage.
It is raining this afternoon, so here I am too. I have been thinking of starting a thread about Patrick the Wombat so that I do not have to apologize for being off topic. You are not going to write a scathing comment if I write something about flashlights or cookies?
I just got back from seeing my G'ma who I have not seen for so many years it's not even funny. She will be turning 100 in Dec. and she is the prettiest thing you've ever seen. She's about as big as my thumb, but she still lives on her own with help that comes in. She is so funny I had tears rolling out of my eyes. When she says something she feels maybe she shouldn't have said, she puts her hands on both her cheeks as if to hide a blush. I just adore this woman. Does anyone else have wonderful g'parents?
Oh Sally, that's so sad. I'm sorry. I think it's lovely that you adopt grandparents. I wonder if you'd like going to nursing homes and such and loving on ppl like my g'ma. She was just telling me how lonely she gets. It broke my heart. (She's a few states away.)
When I'm bored the best thing for me is to call a friend and invite them to go out and explore something new and unexpected. I'd even ask them to think of a place they love and surprise me. If I keep trying to be busy on my own, it seems that my head is still in the same place. I need a distraction, a change in the atmosphere. Right now I'm not bored, just tired and thinking of all the things I need and want to do.
What would you, if you could do? I would magically solve all the world's problems, then I would do the dishes and clean the kitchen and make up a big batch of green tomato chutney and write stellar Hubs about it...
Just wondering?I got pointed to hubs, to try and correct someone who hates superbikes, being a superbiker myself. Actually ended up posting a couple of hubs in the process.Right now I'm finishing a three year assignment...
There are two personality types. What type are you?Type A personalities are driven, work-aholics, who are always busy, tend to be impatient, and on and on. Type B personalities, are free spirits, laid back and...
yes I know I have 2 hubs of things to do when bored but I don't feel like doing any of those...I'm in a rut per say...and bored bored bored.I want to write but I don't want to write. I want to read but don't want to...
I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating...
