What are some things you guys do when your bored? I feel like there is nothing to do and all my friends are away. I just want some new ideas I like trying new things.<br><br><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

When I'm bored, I read. If I don't have anything to read, I either go to the library or read my cookbooks and plan meals.<br><br><br><br>
When I was younger, I'd make long lists. It was almost compulsive. I'd list what I hoped to name my children, what I would take on vacation if I were going to Lake Tahoe, or China, or where ever, I'd list how many books I'd read...etc... Now I make grocery lists!<br><br><br><br>
TV always works, but kinda sucks your brain out of your head.<br><br><br><br>
I also like to write, or go for a walk, or knit, or crochet or play piano.<br><br><br><br>
I like to write letters to family members who don't have email (or even to those who do, but who would enjoy getting snail-mail).<br><br><br><br>
Excersize is always good! Join a gym, rent a workout video, make some new friends as you run around the neighborhood!<br><br><br><br>
Don't think of 'empty' time as a burden, think of it as a gift---now you have time to do something new, try something exciting, center yourself, what ever you decide! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Get crafty (can you sew or knit? I cant, but it doesnt stop me trying). Make mixed tapes. Write a letter or a novel. Read. Give your clothes/kitchen cupboards a clean out. Sort out photos (if youre like me you will have piles of photos shoved in a box). Sleep.

Actually the photo thing is a good idea!!!! I have years of photos in boxes. Just not sure how to sort them, hmmmm.

Cleaning drawers and cupboards out is a good idea, because then you not only get rid of your old junk, but you feel good about getting your house clean too.<br><br>
Reading is my favorite thing to do as it relaxes my body and activates my brain.. but taking a nice long walk or having a good sweaty workout is great also.

Ive attempted to put mine in albums before, but usually end up just looking thru them and reminiscing.<br><br>
Ah well, it still kills an hour or two anyways.

When I was recently out of college and unemployed, a friend of mine and I bought Learn to Speak Italian tapes and tried to learn Italian. We both got full-time jobs the next week, so it soon fell by the wayside, but it took up a lot of time.<br><br><br><br>
Read a book.<br><br>
Write a story.<br><br>
Volunteer somewhere.<br><br>
Learn a craft (macrame is fairly easy to learn from books and you can make some pretty nifty necklaces and bracelets).<br><br>
Go play cards or scrabble or something with residents at a nursing home.<br><br><br><br>
There are lots of things to do!

I think about creating new recipes and then I start cooking. For example, today I made a vegan lemon pie recipe and then I made the pie.<br><br><br><br>
This only really works if you like cooking though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I visit <a href="http://www.bored.com" target="_blank">www.bored.com</a> or go to <a href="http://www.pogo.com" target="_blank">www.pogo.com</a> (in the winter). I'm never really bored in the summer 'cause I'm always out doing stuff.

I'll go for a run, read a book, play on yahoo games, read other peoples journals on livejournal.com, or organizing various rooms around my apartment usually works for me too.
