Stuff You Do When You're Bored Issue #1

Tuesday, June 8, 2010 12:14 PM By Simon


Yes, dear. It's time for the very first of my sure-to-be-many regular posts on cheap movies, scientific factoids, and mind-numbing wastes of time.

ISSUE #1 (duh)
CONSTANTELY REFRESHING YOUR FACEBOOK/EMAIL/WHATEVER YOU CALL YOUR SOCIAL NETWORK

What better way to start shit off then when I find myself home from school, with nothing but my computer, the hundreds of books and movies I have, and a very American lack of initiative to keep me entertained.

Rather than catch up on homework, read, do something to, like, nourish my brain or whatever, I spent maybe half of my waking day refreshing my email. See, while I don't have a Facebook, Twitter, (ahem) Myspace, Youtube, Tumblr, Fanfiction, or friends, I do have an email. Several, in fact.

I had a pretty well-thought out rotation of email-hovering. From Hotmail, to AOL, to Gmail (I was that desperate) back to Hotmail, checking polls, hoping Cracked would've updated in the past five minutes.

So, no. This issue doesn't have any tips on how to properly spend your duller hours, because if I knew it, I would've done it. Maybe next time.

Luckily, I'm not one of those who are addicted to their Facebook. Although blogging could be an issue for me.

If I get really bored, I will start re-organizing or undergoing some ridiculous project, all while class chapters are unread and papers are not started.

Ahaha, you should switch to Gmail. No refreshing needed! New emails just pop up :)

Oh I know I have a problem when facebook is my home page and the blogger dashboard tab is already open. Well I'd rather be addicted to blogging and facebook than crack Amirite?
