10 things to pass the time at uni (or whenever):

Most people think that uni is a combination of a massive piss-up and lots of hard work. It is. But, a lot of the time I spend sat around doing absolutely nothing. It can be a boring existence. So if, like me, your find yourself sat around in your room going a bit crazy, I have devised a list of 10 things you can do when bored:

  1. People watch. It’s always fun laughing at unfortunate and strange looking people out your window. You might catch a good fight if you’re lucky.
  2. Go out and buy 10 magazines, then sit in your cave reading them. Real-life ones are always good – you can laugh at other peoples unbelievable misfortune, and know that being bored is miles better than having a boyfriend with two heads.
  3. Read other people’s blogs! It’s always nice to get feedback, and it’s easy to find interesting and amusing things that can keep you occupied for hours.
  4. Eat. Anything and everything. Find things that are about to go out of date – it gives you an excuse to eat them, and you can say you are saving the environment by cutting waste.
  5. Exercise! You might not feel like lacing up your trainers and going out in the cold, but you feel so good after. Half an hour you would have spent wasting away on Facebook you are using to make your body feel good.
  6. Learn a language. Today I learnt 8 new words in Spanish in 20 minutes thanks to Argzombies and his excellent link. Worth a read.
  7. Call all the freephone numbers on the back of food packets and generally be annoying. It’s childish but fun. And free.
  8. Go for a walk. Fortunately I live near the beach, so it’s always a good place to go.
  9. Go to the pub. Always a fail-safe option. However you need friends to go with you, unless getting on the beers alone is your type of thing…
  10. Internet shop. I can look at new clothes I’d love for hours. But be warned: if you are skint, it won’t make you happy. You might be occupied, but you will just be sad at all the things you want but can’t afford 😦
